T'he Civil Service Commission
has announced that, effective with
the first pay period after Au-
gust 31, 1978, premium rates for
regular life insurance provided to
employees covered under the Fede-
erall Employees' Group Life In-
surance (FEGLI) will b~e reduced
b~y 10 cents per $1,000 of coverage
per biweekly pay period.
The- present biweekly rate of
5:3.25 cents per $1,000 of insurance
is being reduced to 38.25 cents,
reducing the cost to the employee
from 35.5 cents to 25.5 cents and
the contribution by the agency
from 17.75 to 12.75 cents.
'The reduction will range from l
$1 less biweekly for employees
eligible for the minimum coverage
of $10,000 to $6 biweekly for em-
ployees who are entitled to the
maximunt coverage of $60,000. An
average employee will pay $1.10
less. biweekly for $i17,000 of
The regular FEGLI plan pro-
vides coverage in an amount equal
to the employee's salary rounded
to the next $1,000, plus $2,000.
The level premium, the rate per
$1,000 is the same for all em-
ployees, regardless .of age.
The Commission also announced
a reduction in the hiw~eekly pre-

mium rates for the additional op-
tional $10,000 life insurance cover-
age which has been available
since February 1968 to employees
participating in the regular life
insurance plan under a schedule
of age-adjusted rates on an em-
ployee-pay-all b~asis. These new
rates also will be effective with
the first pay period beginning after
August 31, 19378. The b~iweekly
premiums for optional life in-
surance will b~e reduced as follows:

Gov. H. R. Parfitt is shown during a recent visit to
the Atlantic side where he ol served a number of
Atlantic side operations, particularly those pertaining
to transit operations and functions of the Transporta-
tion and Terminals Bureau. The Governor's visit in-
cluded a complete tour and overview of loading and
unloading operations on the SS '.Cristobal," a tour
of the pier complex and Gatun Locks facilities, and


an inspection of recently completed improvements and
others underway. He also observed relay lockage
procedures for expediting the transit of vessels through
Gatun Locks, the tug ~assist operation of assisting
vessels entering the south end of Gatun Locks, and
visited the linehandlers area at Gatun. With the
Governor at Gatun Locks is R. J. Danielsen, Locks
Division Atlantic Branch Superintendent.

The reduction of life insurance
rates is the result of a recently
completed evaluation of the in-
surance program by the Civil
Service Commission which showed
a decline in cost of the prograrn
due mainly to the reduced mor..
tality rates, higher investment
yields, and with respect to the op-
tional insurance, a marked in~
crease in employee participation

the program through June 30,

Drivers should be aware also of

gather at the bus stops, and keep
in mind that every motor vehicle,
'traveling in either direction, must
stop at least 10 feet from a school-
bus that has stopped to pick up or

stop also when the bus lights are
blinking and not proceed until the

The Engineering and Construc-
tion B~ureau began two major
Canal inaintenailce projects this
week that will require the tem-
parary closing of lanes to ship
traffic while work is in progress.
The installation of the 'new
softnose at Gatun Locks and the
project to stop erosion from beneath
the Miraflores Locks center ap
proach wall are being tackled

during the same general time frame
to minimize the backlog of ships
that could result from the lane
The erosion project at Miraflores
is being handled in two phases, the
first having begun at 1 minute after
midnight on August 17. Ten Pan-
ama Canal Company divers working
in two shifts are now at work
putting nylon bags filled with ce-
ment grout in place between the
caissons, or pillars, that support
the center wall. (See diagram).
'The cellular wall, constructed on
what was originally flat land, is
itself stabilized with dirt and rock
fill from the original Canal excava-
tions. The 7V2%-fOOt in diameter
caissons beneath the wall reach
through the earth to a solid rock
I ase. Earth aroi th er ci s

and the fill within the wall has
also begun to leak out. At this time
erosion on the east lane has pro-
gressed to where corrective action
is required. West lane work will
not be performed at this time.
The first phase of the work will
require that the east lane at Mira-
flores be out of service until 8 a.m.,
August 20. A 4-day break will allow
for the clearing of any backlog
that may have developed; then
work will begin on the second
phase, extending from August 24
to 27.
At Gatun Locks, the west lane
will be out of service until noon
today and the east lane, from
6 a.m. today until noon tomorrow

to allow for the installation of the
newly built softnose on the south
approach wall. The new softnose
is identical to the one recently
installed at Pedro Miguel north
center wall.
The old timber floating softnose
at Gatun was demolished this year
by a transiting vessel.

Alvin Orgeron, who received a
Special Award for Most Enthu-
siastic Player in Racquetball Singles
in the Division of Schools Summer
Recreation Program, has had only
o~ne leg since he was in a motor-
cycle accident at the age of 37. He
is now 15 andr, in addition to b~einf
goodl at racquetball, is an accom-
plishedl soccer andi hasketb~all
player- and swimmer.- With a good
dleal o~f skill-andi some dlaringi-he
also skateh~oardt s andl ride~s a ~i-
All this with the help of an
artificial leg? Not at all. When
taking part in sports, Alvin puts
the artificial leg aside and with
remarkable skill manipulates a
crutch with his right hand and
dlrib~bles a b~all, swings a racqluet
or does whatever necessary witli
his left.
Alvin's eyes shine when he tells
hlow he was able to become an
outstanding athlete despite his
handicap. "Up until about the time
when I was in fifth grade, I used
to sit and watch all the kids going
b~y; having fun and playing games.
Then I got these two good friends,
D~onald Simons and Billy Pierson,
who would encourage and some-
times force me to take part in
what they were doing. If I said,
'No, I can't.' Then they'd say,
'O).K., so just sit there. We're
going to without you.' Andi so
I'dl get ulp and tr~y to go a~long

and do whatever they were doing."
Since then, Alvin participated inl
all the recreation activities at Bal-
b~oa Elementary School, including
rope-climb~ing, and, upon the re-
ommlendation of the school's Ree-
reation Specialist Abdtiel Flynn, wls
accepted as a member of the re~-
ular gym classes when he entered
Curuundu Junior Hligh School. There
he hlas :taken par~t in inltramulral
b~asketball, wrestling aInd sc~c'cer, in
which he: letterel.
InI the summer of '76i, he was
onle of six h~oys on~ the "C" League
Championship Basketball teaml in
the Summer Recreation Progral.
When askedl what is the hardeast
thling for him to do, Alvin replies'
"Noithing. I try everyth ng. 11 I a

don't worry about it." '
Alvin~ was .horn1 in the Canal
Zone and has lived here all his
life. His father, H~orace Orgeron,
of the Motor Transportation Divi
sion, will soon be retiring. The
family plans to live inl New Or-
leans. Alvin's plans for the future
include studying to become an
Architectural Engineer, and trying
and becoming proficient in new
sports. Football, for instance.
Balb~oa High School Coach John
Mc~ee says Alvin is the most ded
icatedl and courageous athlete h-e
has seen in years. We're surec our
readerrs wYill a~gre.

Notice anything missing when you came to work this weekF How
about 441 student assistants! Last Friday was the final day of work
for most of the young people in the U.S. student assistant summer
hire program.
Employed inl every bureau within the Canlal organizations, they
have handled job~s ranging from office clerical work to dog catching.
A record number of student assistants were hired this year. Nearly
every higth school graduate anld college student wvho applied was
accepted, either inl the Panama Canal program or with the. militar-y
The feedback from their employers indicates that they excelled
in their jobs. Of the representative sampling of student assistants
featured onl this page, two, Sissy Plunkett anld Jaime Roman,
r~eceivedl special letters of co~mmendlation for the high equality of
their work.
Most of the students ar~e now getting ready to go back to college,
either locally or stateside. Those of us who have been beneficiaries
of their hard work thank them for jobs well done and wish them
the b~est of luck as they pr~epare themselves for etntelring the workingS
wor~ldl onI a permanent ba;sis.
