Secretary of the Army Clifford L.
Alexander, Jr., Gov. H. R. Parfitt,
and four members of Panama's
treaty planning group gave a press
conference last Friday at the Balboa
Heights Administration Building*
Representing the Panamanian
govern ntF~ere odrig 1GL s

Galindo and Fernando Manfredo.
Alexander, who as Secretary of
the Army is also chairman of the
Panama Canal Board of Directors,
was on the Isthmus for two days to
'b chair meetings of the Board.
Opening the session, the Secretary
told members of the press that he
had heard reports from four of the
subcommittees doing the prepara-
tory work for the implementation of
the new Treaty in October. The sub-
commitths were those concerned
with ports, railroad, the environ-
ment and surveys.
Alexander said that he and the
Panamanian representatives had
1- heen treated to a dramatic presen-
tation on the serious problems of
deforestation within the Canal's
watershed. Both the Panamanian
and U.S. governments are in com-
plete agreement, he stated, on the
need to put an end to slash-and-
burn agriculture within the water-
shed and to work to reverse the

portion of the legislation has been
changed to allow retirement ben-
efits to be figured on an employee's
high one year of service rather than
the "high three." She said the
matter had been raised in Congress
in regard to all. Federal employees
a year ago and had been rejected,
Pacific Civic Council President
Richard Cheville read a statement
on behalf of his council. It asked
for an ombudsman to be named to
represent career U.S. Government
employees during the difficult days
of the Treaty implementation as a
way of minimizing the negative
impact of change.
Blumenfeld responded that many
of those in attendance had previ-
ously said that Gov. H. R. Parfitt has
been the best ombudsman em-
ployees could ask for throughout the
Treaty process and added that he
feels sure the new ambassador to
Panama, Ambler Moss, is aware
of his role in seeing to it that em-
playee working and living condi-
tions are not downgraded.
Nurses Union president Barbara
Corson asked whether the Civil
Service Reform Act of 1978 will be
applied to the Canal Zone. Title 7
of that act deals with labor/man-
agement relations and gives collec-
tive bargaining rights to Federal

emteeenfeld said the Board is
studying that issue but has not
arrived at a decision. The Act takes
effect in the States early in 1979.

According to Blumenfeld, the
Board will also make a decision con-
cerning any changes to the wage
base. Several labor leaders ques-
tioned the validity of rumors that
the wage base will be revised after
the Treaty is implemented. They
voiced strong objection to such a
move, citing Article X of the Treaty
which guarantees that terms and
conditions of employment will be
no less favorable than those cur-
rently in existence. Blumenfeld
repeated that it is still under con-
AFGE Local 14 representative
David Baglien asked the Board
members to intercede with DOD
on its decision to more than triple
part-time tuition rates at Canal
Zone College when it takes over
the school. He said the DOD plan
to maintain the college on a cost
recovery basis will put it out of
existence within two years.
Civil Affairs Director Fred Cotton
agreed that the situation is "very
serious" and said his bureau wants
recovery of costs by DOD to be on
an incremental basis and apply to
the Canal Zone school system as a
whole. No college or university in
the world, he said, is able to be
completely self-sustaining.
AFGE labor leader James J.
O'Donnell praised the priority place-

don't want to wait until the last
minute to have the Board come up
with some decision and send it to us
under the guise that \ve are being
consulted, only to be told a week
later that the original decision they
passed stands."
Poston and Blumenfeld talked
candidly with the representatives on
Friday at the Balboa Training
Center. Both are members of the
Panama Canal Board of Directors,
and Blumenfeld is also chairman
of the Canal Zone Civilian Per-
sonnel Policy Coordinating Board.

Assuring those present that "we
get no pleasure out of your uncer-
tainty," Blumenfeld stated that he
was open to further written com-
ments relative to the legislative
package. He said the legislation
has undergone revisions since the
draft version was submitted to
Canal Zone employees, but in-
dicated the revisions were not con-
cerned with the issue of early retire-

Civil Service Commissioner Ersa
Poston and Deputy Under Secretary
of the Army Michael Blumenfeld
met with Canal Zone civic and labor
leaders last week and promised
them a look at the Treaty imple-
menting legislation as soon as it is
presented to Congress.
The move came in response to
heavy criticism by labor that they
are getting too little feedback on
recommendations they have sub-
mitted so far.

Y's Fitness Evaluation Test Sets Your Limit for Safe Exercising


Diana lanoale peddes her way through a fitness evaluation test on the

adjusts the workload, or peddle pressure, on the stationary bike. Diana is
a management analyst in the Records Management Branch and Troadio,
a recreation specialist at Balboa Elementary School.

Robert Benchley used to say that
when the urge to exercise came
upon him he lay down till it went
But that's obviously not the case
with Canal Zone residents who, like
millions of other Americans, are
getting involved in physical fitness
programs and taking up jogging.
While these activities can lead to
such benefits as improved cardio-
vascular function, weight control
and better muscle tone, authorities
warn that beginners should have a
medical checkup before getting in-
volved in a vigorous exercise
A new book at the Canal Zone
Library entitled The Complete
Book of Running by James F. Foxx
is a current bestseller. Foxx quotes
Dr. Leroy H. Getchell of Ball State
University as saying that people
with the slightest doubt about their
health should have a fitness evalua-
tion, or "stress test" as it is com-
monly known, to determine the
level at which they can safely begin
to exercise. .
The Balboa YMCA is offering
individual fitness evaluation tests by
appointment in its newly con-
structed fitness lab. Administered
by a certified Physical Fitness Spe-
cialist who was strained at the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin, the test is
broken up into several parts.
The first and most basic part is
on the bicycle ergometer, a sta-
tionary bicycle that allows you to
peddle increasingly harder over a
nine-minute period while your
Ireart rate is monitored at the same
time. A measure of your maximum
oxygen uptake, the test on the ergo-
meter is the best single indicator
of your physical fitness. -
Before you are allowed to take
this part of the fitness test, your
blood pressure and resting heart
rate are checked. Using a pre-
determined formula, your maximum
heart rate (the fastest rate at which
your heart can beat) is computed;
then 85 percent of that number is
figured. You are not allowed to

peddle beyond that rate on the
The other parts of the fitness
evaluation test measure such things
as strength, using a hand-held gage
called a dynamometer; percentage
of body fat; muscular endurance,
by the number of situps you can do
in one minute; and flexibility of the
lower back.
In conjunction with the evalua-
tions, the "Y" is beginning exercise

classes on Monday open only to
those who have been tested. The
classes will meet in two sessions:
on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
mornings from 6:15 to 7 a.m. and
on Monday and Wednesday after-
noons from 5:15 to 6 p.m. The pur-
pose of the classes is to increase the
overall fitness of those who par-
ticipate and prepare them to launch
out on their own regular exercise

A Federal Employees' Health
Benefits Program open season will

employees who do not wish to make
a change in current enrollment need
take no action during this open
Distribution of open season litera-
ture will be made prior to Novem-
ber 13. Each employee will receive
an open season instruction pamph-

let, a list of premium rates, and

civilian employees of the Depart-
ment of Defense should be con-
sidered for Top priority placement
along with their Company/Govern-
ment counterparts; and that teachers
should be eligible for priority place-
ment in other Federal Gqvernment
jobs within the United States if they
do not wish to continue teaching in
the DOD system.
Blumenfeld told the representa-
e. tives he feels there is little chance
Congress would approve any meas-
ure allowing Panamanian employees
of the Federal Government in the
Canal Zone who immigrate to the
Telephone States to continue in Federal em-
number employment since U.S. law prohibits
52-7601 anyone but U.S. citizens from
52-7585 holding Federal jobs.
52-7757 CLU-MTC President Al Graham
52-3577 asked that consideration be given
52-3445 to allowing any U.S. employee who
43-1665 is 62 by January 1 or who will be
52-7433 62 by October 1, 1979, to transfer
52-7723 to a Federal job in the States if he
52-3383 or she so desires. The mandatory
52-3305 retirement age for Panama Canal
52-3305 employees is 62, but the age limit
52-3274 is 70 within the United States.
52-3335 In what turned out to be a fitting
527684 close to the hour-and-15-minute

52-3266 the Board members to do their part

concerning possible vandalism of

Junto con las evaluaciones, el
"Y" inicia clauses de ejercicios el lu-
nes, solamente para aquellos que
han sido examinados. Las cases se
darin en dos turns: lunes, mi6rco-
les y viernes en las mafianas de
6:15 a 7 a.m. y lunes y mi4rcoles en
las tardes de 5:15 a 6 p.m. El pro-
p6sito de las clauses es aumentar la
aptitude general de los participants
y prepararlos para iniciar sus pro-
gramas regulares de ejercicios.

Robert Benchley solia decir que
cuando sentia la necesidad de hacer
ejercicio, se acostaba y dejaha que
le pasara el impulse.
Pero, obviamente, ese no es el
caso de los residences de la Zona
del Canal que, como millones de
americanos, estin participando en
programs de superaci6n fisica y
de trote.
Aunque estas actividades produ-
cen beneficios tales como mejor fun-
ci6n cardiovascular, control del
peso y mefor tono muscular, las
autoridades advierten que los prin-
cipiantes deben hacerse un examen
medico antes de comenzar un vigo-
rosa program de ejercicios.
La Biblioteca de la Zona del
Canal tiene un nuevo libro intitu-
lado El Libro Completo Sobre el
Arte de Correr, de James F. Foxx,
que es un 4xito de libreria. Foxx
cita al Dr. Leroy H. Getchell de la
Universidad "Ball State" quien dice
que las personas que tengan la mis
ligera duda sobre su salud deberian
hacerse una evaluacibn de aptitude
o examenn bajo tension", como ge-
neralmente se le Hama, para deter-
minar el nivel al cual pueden con
seguridad comenzar a hacer ejer-
El YMCA de Balboa estA ofre-
ciendo evaluaciones de aptitude in-
dividuales, por citas, en su reci&n
construido laboratorio de aptitude.

pecialista de Aptitud Fisica, adies-
trado en la Universidad de Wiscon-
sin. El. examen se divide en varies

ritmo cardiac. El examen en el
"erg6metro", que mide su mAxima
capacidad de inhalaci6n de oxigeno
es el mejor indicator individual de
su aptitude fisica.
Antes de que se le permit hacer
esta parte del examen de aptitude,
se le toma la presi6n sanguine y el
ritmo cardiac en descanso. Usanao
una 6rmula predeterminada, su
ritmo cardiac mAximo (el latido
mis rdpido de su coraz6n) es com-
putado, entonces se calcula el 85

por ciento de esa cifra. No se per-
mite que usted pedalee a mayor
velocidad en el "erg6metro".
Las otras parties del examen de
aptitude miden la fuerza, usando un
medidor de mano Ilamado dinam6-
metro; el porcentaje de grasa en el
cuerpo; resistencia muscular, por el
ni'xmero de veces que puede incor-
porarse en un minute desde una
posici6n sentada; y flexibilidad de
la parte inferior de la espalda.

La temporada abierta del Progra-
ma de Beneficios de Salud para los
Empleados Federales se extended
del 13 de noviembre al 8 de diciem-
bre de 1978.

trucciones, una lista de tariffs y

de la Zona del Canal, del Plan
