The Panama Canal Spillway


The subject of Canal Zone Col-
lege school tuition has been the
topic of continuing queries, which
apparently need further clarifica-
An article in the July 16 issue
of the SPILLWAY announced an in-
crease in tuition rates for the
1976-77 school year and an im-
portant policy change with regard
to sponsorship at Canal Zone
A second article, published the
past week, pointed out that the
change in sponsorship policy for
the college, which was to be im-
plemented at the start of the fall
term, is being deferred for 1
The deferment, it was noted,
was given to provide more time for
other Government agencies to
examine alternatives for students
affected by the sponsorship change
at the college, including the pos-
sibility of obtaining authority and
funds to sponsor such students.
Not affected by the deferment will
be the increase in tuition rates for
both sponsored and non-sponsored
Under the law, the Canal orga-
nization is required to be self-
sustaining and to obtain full re-
imbursement for services provided
to employees and dependents of
other U.S. Government agencies,
including education. In the case
of the Canal Zone College, the

Civic Councils To Hear

Emergency Planning Talks
Dr. Paul J. Campanella, of the
Executive Planning Staff, will dis-
cuss "emergency preparedness
planning" before the Gamboa
Civic Council at 7:30 p.m., Au-
gust 31, in the Gamboa Civic
Dr. Campanella will travel to
the Atlantic side September 2 to
deliver a similar talk before a joint
meeting of the Gatun, Margarita
and Coco Solo-France Field Civic
Councils. This meeting will begin
at 7 p.m. in the Cristobal High
School Auditorium.
Both talks will be followed by
question and answer sessions.



Canal organization by default has
been subsidizing the education of
various students affiliated with
other U.S. Government agencies
by extending the sponsored rate
regardless of reimbursement by
such agencies. These agencies pre-
sently will sponsor only unmarried
minor dependents under the age
of 21 for full-time study at the
college. As a result, the Canal or-
ganization has for some time been
absorbing the difference between
the actual cost of providing educa-
tion at the college and the low
rate of tuition being paid by all
other students affiliated with these
agencies, including all part-time
students. No authority exists to
continue this practice.
Following are questions and an-
swers intended to clarify the school
tuition policy:
Q. What is a sponsored tuition?
A. A sponsored tuition is one in
which the agency of the employee
pays the difference between the
actual cost of providing education
at the college and the low rate of
tuition charged the student. For
example, sponsored tuition at
Canal Zone College in the coming
fall term will be $220 per semester
for full-time students and $18 per
credit hour for part-time.

Q. What is a non-sponsored
A. A non-sponsored tuition is
the tuition cost charged to an in-
dividual who is not financially
sponsored by a U.S. Government
agency. Non - sponsored tuition
rates at Canal, Zone College this
fall will be $1,050 per semester
for full-time students and $65 per
credit hour for part-time.
Q. Which students are spon-
sored by the various agencies?
A. Presently, the Canal organi-
zation provides sponsorship for all
its U.S.-citizen employees, spouses
and dependents and those of non-
U.S. employees living in the Canal
Zone for full-time and part-time
study at the college. The Depart-
ment of Defense, Department of
State, FAA, Smithsonian Institu-
tion and other U.S. Government
agencies provide sponsorship only
for unmarried dependents of their
U.S.-citizen employees under 21
years of age for full-time study
Q. Does the tuition assistance
or tuition refund program of a
U.S. Government agency consti-
tute financial sponsorship for en-
rollment at the Canal Zone Col-
A. No. The tuition refund or
assistance programs are designed
to defray the cost to the employee
of obtaining additional education
or training which will be useful
to him in his present or future
position with that agency. It does
not involve payment to the Canal
Zone Government of the difference
between the cost of providing the
courses at Canal Zone College and
the tuition rate paid by the
Q. I am a military wife who
paid only $15 the past semester
per credit hour at the college and
will have to pay $18 in the coming
term. How much will I have to
pay during the second term?
A. If the U.S. Military obtains
funds and authority to pay for
your sponsorship, you will con-
tinue to pay $18. If not, however,
you will have to pay the non-
sponsored rate of $65 per credit

Monday will be the happiest
day of the year for Maria Aldridge
-the first day of a new school
Greeting a class of youngsters
with "Buenos dias, nifios," she will
begin to expose English-speaking
youngsters to the Spanish language.
And as months pass, she will
reap a teacher's reward-the ex-
citement in young eyes when,
suddenly and unexpectedly, the
strange sounds of a foreign lan-
guage become meaningful.
Maria was born and attended
elementary school in Told, Pro-
vince of Chiriqui. She came to
Panama City for high school at the
Liceo de Sefioritas and, after com-
pleting her third year, received a
scholarship to the normal school
in Santiago to study teaching.
As soon as she received her
teaching diploma, she was em-
ployed by the Canal Zone Divi-
sion of Schools and she enrolled
in the University of Panama. After
attending the university at night
and during summers for 5 years,
she received a bachelor of arts

A letter from President Gerald R. Ford arrived last week commending
well-known local sculptor, Rudy Burda, for his Bicentennial gift which
the President called a "special part in America's national celebration."
Burda cut, bent and welded Panama Railroad spikes into "The Spirit
of '76" and personalized it with two citizen soldiers-one carrying
a rifle and the other an American flag. The art work was then set on a
metal plate, mounted on a piece of native mahogany, and the plate
engraved. Burda and his unique version of one of America's most
famous patriotic symbols are shown during a show at Stevens Circle.
Isthmian residents who visit Washington, D.C. this year can see it on
display with other Bicentennial gifts in the Great Hall of the Com-
merce Building on E Street, between 14th and 15th streets. Burda, a
former optician at the Balboa Optical Shop, retired in January and
makes his home in Panama.

the public opening of bids for the
construction of 24 housing units.

ments and two containing six

of building will be identical two-
story homes with two bedrooms
and 11/2 baths.
Covered patios and carports will
Le separated by storage areas.
Demolition work has begun at
the Williamson Place site where
the first phase of the project will
consist of the construction of 34
housing units. The contract was
awarded to Hammer Corp.


Two newly promoted Fire Division officers receive the insignia of their
new ranks. At left, Fire Division Chief Frank Berry pins a lieutenant's
badge on Arthur Evans while Mrs. Ronald M. Guilliams pins a captain's
badge on her husband. At the time of their promotions, Evans was
named station commander at Fort Sherman Fire Station and Guilliams
station commander at the Mount Hope Fire Station.

Williamson Place was selected
for the new quarters for two
reasons. The present 12-family
apartments are the most substand-
ard buildings in the Canal Zone
and their demolition will provide
a low development cost area for
the new construction.
Plans and specifications for the
work, which includes the removal
of existing wood-framed 12-family
apartments, were issued on Au-
gust 9. They may be picked up
together with bid forms at the En-
gineering Division, Balboa Heights.

Con el saludo de "Buenos dias,

En el transcurso de los meses,

entusiasmo cuando sibita e ines-
peradamente los sonidos extrafios
de una lengua extranjera empie-
zan a tener sentido.
Maria naci6 y curs6 su educa-

En el tercer afio se hizo acreedora

Tan pronto recibi6 su diploma

tir a classes nocturnas en la Uni-
