60Ing Over Goal
Federal agencies placed the over
all goal over the top. Employees of
the U.S. Embassy, All$ and USICA
achieved a high of 178.4 percent,
of their assigned goal; Army,
143.3 percent; Smithsonian Insti-
tute, 148.1 percent; Air Force,
118.8 percent; Department of Jus-
tice, 108.6 percent; Southern Com-
mand, 101.8 percent; Federal Avia-
tion Administration, 107.5 paircent;
and the Federal Highway Admin-
istration 102.
Employees of six bureaus of the
Panama Canal also reached deep
down into their pockets and with-
their contributions placed their hu-
reaus over their assigned goals in
this year's United Way Campaign.
Two other bureaus passed the 90
percent mark, one coming within
2,7 percent of its assigned goal and
the other missing the mark by 5.6
percent. Only one bureau fell short,
slightly more than 20 percentage
points of its goal.
The six bureaus that surpassed
their set goals are the Supply arid
Community Service Bureau, the
bureau which year after year is the
first to go over the top; the Persori-
nel Bureau, the only bureau that
can boast 100 percent employee par-
ticipation in this years' drive; Staff
Units; Transportation & Terminals;
Office of the Financial Vice Pres-
ident; and the Marine Bureau.
Though the 1979 Combined Fed-
eral Campaign ended officially on
November 2, contributions are still
being accepted and may be made
through the payroll deduction or by
cash contribution.

On November 6, last day plus
one, of the 1979 Canal Zone Area
Combined Federal Campaign, the
Canal organization and other
Federal agencies of the Isthmus
achieved 101.6 percent of this
year's assigned goal, -making it
clearly evident that. Federal em-
playees on the Isthmus are sensi-

At a ceremony in the Governor's Office, Michael Barnett, lead accounts
maintenance clerk at the Mount Hope Warehouse, receives from Gov. H. R.
Parfitt a certificate attesting to 50 years of Canal service, all with the
Supply Division at Mount Hope. Born in Colon, Barnett began his Canal
service as a messenger in the General Manager's Office at Mount Hope
on September 29, 1928, shortly after completing school at Rainbow City.
Experiencing many changes on the Canal in the past half century, Barnett
recalls the depression when he worked 16 days a month for $22.50 and
the coming and going of many general managers over the years. He is
secretary of the Ebenezer Methodist Church, treasurer of the church-
sponsored Plus Ultra Club, and president of the Cristobal Federal Credit
Union. He and his wife, Muriel, live in Rainbow City. They have a
daughter, Alicia Nelson, who lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., and was here for
the presentation ceremony, and two grandchildren. An ardent fan of the
Los Angeles Dodgers, Barnett says that he'll put his money on them
again next year.

PTOSident S' Honor Roll
Hilary Morris, son of Ms. Wini-
fred Morris Of Balboa, has been
named to the Presidents Honor Roll
at Texas State Technical Institute
in'Wac'o. A 1974 graduate of Sal-
boa High School, he is studying
animal technology and maintained
a 4.0 grade-point average for the
summer quarter.
Prior to high school graduation,
Hilary earned the coveted Eagle
Scout A vaid as a member of Gam-
hoa Troop 10. After collecting 500
cans, he prepared them with potting
soil and planted 1,000 plants wl;tich
he had started from cuttings and
presented them to the Bahai Faith
Temple in Panama for the beautifi-
cation of the Temple grounds.

Canal Zone police officer Feliciano Villalobos loads the weapon with whic
he won a silver medal in the master category at the 42d World Shootin
Championships in Seoul, Korea. Known was an Igi Domino .22-caliber lon

trip which included such red carpet

chanifored cars.
In Seoul, Villalobos rubbed elbows
with a prince from India, a few
Barons, a U.S. :state senator and a
member of the Queen's Royal
Guard. But he said the stiff com
petition among the hundreds of par-
ticipants representing 76 countries
tended to be a greattleveler. Villa
10bos corresponds with Senator
Gary Anderson, who holds two
world records in riFle shooting.
Villalobos entered three events
at the World Shooting Champion-
ships. The first was the .h2-caliber
short rapid fire international where
a total of 60 shots for a maximunt
of 600 points 11/as possible. Many of
those entered had-been selected by
their countries from among two or
three thousand experts of that par-
ticular modality, while Villalobos
was the best of about six from
Panama. He scored 565 points, and
the winner, a Swiss with 23 years
of shootilig experience, scored 595.
The second event was the
.38-caliber center fire international,
a tougher event involving a moving
target. Both Panama and the United
States were at a disadvantage, Villa-
lobos said, because they used
.38-caliber weapons while all other
competitors were using very modern
weapons of .32-caliber, which were
also accepted. The winner from
Finland scored 593 out of a pos-
sible 600 points: Villalobos placed

Villalobos has been a Canal Zone
policeman since 1964 and was the
first Panamanian member of the
force. He first became aware of his
skills at marksmanship when he was

He began shooting competitively
nine years ago and in that time has
traveled throughout Central and

It was while he was participating
in the Central y\merican and Carib

that Villalobos was noticed by rep-
resentatives of the Soutli Korean
government and an invitation was
extended to him through the Gov-
h ernment of Panama to compete in
g the world championships. He at-
g tended in the company of the pres-
c ident of the Panama Shooting
s Commission, a major in tl e Na-
tional Guard. The Korean govern-
mbnt paid all of the expenses of the

58th out of 250 participants, with
a score of 573.
In the first two events, participa-
tion was limited to four entries per
country. The last event, the popular
.22-caliber long rifle standard pistol
international, was a free entry
allowing unlimited participation.
Villalobos said he found himself
among more than 500 other com-
Using a very modern, specially
constructed weapon built in Italy,
Villalobos scored the highest in.the
ivorld ip two series in this event,
finishing in fifth place with a score
of 575 out-of a possible 600. The
Swiss winner scored 583 points,
breaking the world record by one
point. The first three place winners
received gold medals, and for fifth
place, Villalobos received a silver
medal in the master category.
Most of the preparation that Vi-
lialobos does for shooting competi-
tion is mental. At his home in Ancon
he practices dry fire, i.e. without
bullets, by concentrating on a point
on the wall. Villalobos is teaching
his wife Delia, who was once afraid
of guns, to use his .22-caliber pistol
and is encouraging her to enter
matches. Once or twice a week the
Villalohos go out to a shooting range
to make sure that their weapons,
rather than their skills, are in- top
In the coming year Villalobos is
scheduled to participate in the Pin
American Games in Puerto Rico, the
Benito Jutirez Life Invitation Com-
petition in Mexico,.and matches in
Venezuela and Brazil. Because of
his outstanding performance at the
world competition in Seoul, Villalo-
has is qualified to compete in the
next Olympic games th he held in
Moscow in 1980.

el quinto lugar en la categoria de
calibre 22 L.R. y regresty al pals can
mla medaila de plata.
Villalobos ba sido policia en la
Zona del Canal clesde 1964 y fue
el primer panametio miembro de ese
cuerpo. Por primer vez se di6 cuen-
ta de su exceptional bunteria cuan-
do particip6 en una compefencia de
la Divisi6n de Policia usando un re-
vbiver de servicio.
Comenz6 a disparar en compe-

En Scril, Villglobos se code6 can

Estados Unidos y un miembro de la
Caballeria Real de la Reina. Pero
61 dice que la ardua competencia
entre clients de participants que
representaban a 76 passes fue el
gran nivelador: Villalobos mantiene
correspondencia can el Senador
Cary Anderson, quien ostenta dos
records mundiales de tiro con rifie.
Villalobos compiti6 en 3 events
en el Campeanato Mundial de Tiro
al Blanco. El primer fue el calibre
22 carto, fuego nipido, ,internacio-
nal, en'que se hace un- total de 60
disparos para un mtiximo possible de
600 punts. Muchos de los compe-
tidores habian sido seleceionados en

que utilizaba un blanco m6vil.
Tanto Panamti como los Estados

Villalobos, porque usaron armas ea-

tidores usaron armas muy moder-
nas de cal. 32, que tambibn eran
acceptable. El ganador, de Finlan-
