Passage of treaty implementing
legislation in the (J.S. Congress will
involve debates by many con-
gressional committees and many
representatives will probably be
visiting the Isthmus on fact-finding
trips, U.S. Ambassador Ambler H.
Moss Jr. tokl Atlantic-siders last
While expressing optiinism that
the implementing legislation vill
pass, Moss pointed out that the new
Coligress has just been elected and
no action can he expected until
During an all-day tour of Atlantic
side facilities ,and meetings with
labot and civic council representa-
tives, the Ambassador listened to a
wide range of employee concerns
and*fielded a variety of questions
related to the effects of the treaty
on -working conditions and the
quality of life in the Canal Zorie.
Though he did not have ready
answers for all of their questions,
the Ambassador assured the em-
playees that President Carter, Gov-
ernpr Parfitt and he were aware of
their concerns and would do all
within their power to insure a
smooth transition. It is in the in-
terest of both Panama and the
United States to keep skilled people
on the job and to see that the Canal
continues to be a model of good
management and Afficiency, he said.
Culminating the day's round of
meetings was a session with civic
council representatives hosted by
Gary Hudson, president of the Coco
Solo-France Field Council. In an-
swer to question, the Ambassador
. said plans are being worked out.
for provision of consular services
on the Atlantic side so that residents
would not have to travel to Panama
for passports. He aflded, however,
that establishment of a consulate
in Colon was not likely to be

Affairs director Fred Cotton has
been in conversations with Panama
National Guard officials and plans
are being drawn up for special
training of the forces which will
he patrolling Canal -Commission
housing areas. The 30-month tran-
sition period, during which Canal
Zone Police find Cuardia will be
patrolling together, he said, will
afford an opportunity to work out
any problems which may arise.
Asked about his impression of
Panama's subcomniittees and tl eir
work ivith U.S. counterparts in
planning for treaty implementation,
Moss said he was greatly impressed
with the progress which has been
made arid the professional manner
in which the work is bWng ap-
proached. There is still-much more
work done over the next two
years, he said.
Asked whether he thought House
inembers were likely to hold up im-
splementing legislation because they
were not allowed to vote on the
treaty itself Moss replied that there
is only a minority oFrepresentatives
who are likely to oppose implemen-
tation. He pointed out that regar&-
less of implementing legislation, the
United States is legally committed
to the terms of the treaty. Legisla-
tion is needed to allow the United
States to day Panama what the
treaty calls for, he-explained, but
failure to pass it does iot mean that
the obligation no longer exists. It
simply means that a large nation
like the United States would be in
debt to a small nation like Panama
until such -time as the legislation
is passed.
One questioner asked why Gov.
H. R. Parfitt's name had not been
mentioned for a place on the new
Canal Commission. Moss replied
that as far as he knew, to other

Prior tff the -implementation of
the Panama Canal treaties on Oc-
tober 1, 1979, the groundwork must
be laid by the Personnel Bureau for
the transfer of approximately 2,950
Canal organization employees to
the Department of Defense, the
reduction-in-force (IUF) of about
3,200 employees engaged in oper-
ations that will be abolished, and
the termination of another 750 tem-
porary employees. .
To accomplish this, a freeze on
permanent personnel. actions will
- her 31, 1978, and will extend until
the treaty ~ implementation date.
During this nine-month period, the
, routine work of the Personnel Bu-
reati will be reduced to a bare min-.
imum so the staff can devote itself
to the ta:sk of preparing for the per-
sorinel movements-
During the freeze, no permanent
employment, reassignnients or
promotions will be permitted, with
two exceptions: the filling of key,
hard-to-fill positions, -such as Canal
pilot, towboat master, or medical
officer, which normally involve re-
cruitment from the United States;
and the promotion of employees in
developmental positions, such as
apprentices or learners, and others

in positions with established targets
of higher grades where competitive
procedures are not required for
Any other exceptions to the freeze
must be approved individually by
the Personnel Director, and this
will be done only in those cases
where sufficient justification exists.
Positions that become vacant
during the freeze may be filled by
using procedures already available
for temporary promotion or tem-
parary employment. In addition,
Governor Parfitt has.approved a
temporary exception to the agency
inherit promotion plan that ivill per-
mit units to make temporary pro-
motions of up to one year's dura-
tion without following the normal
procedures outlined in the merit
promotion plan. This temporary
measure was adopted after consul-
tation with local labor unions and
approval by the Canal Zone Civil-
ian Personnel Policy Coordinating
These temporary promotions may
begin any time op or after Decem-
ber 31, 1978, but must terminate
no later than December 31, 1979.
The Personnel Bureau recommends
that employees he kept informed
of the opportimity for any tempo-

rary promotion within either their
branch, division or-bureau, as-ap-
propriate. The purpo of these
special measures is to i-elieve the
Personnel Bureau of its regu ar
work to the maximum extent pos-
sible so that its limited staff may
be devoted to the treaty-generated
personnel movements.
While yearly performanEe ratings
will be issued during the time that
the freeze is in effect, ratings based
on performance through March 31,
1978, will be used for determining
employee rights under redriction-
in force procedures. It is anticipated
that reduction-in-force notices will
be issued on April 2, 1979; there-
fore, there will not be sufficient time
to process ratings submitted for the
period ending March 31, 1979. Re-
duction-in-force regulations provide
that existing ratings will be used for
RIF purposes until they are re-
placed by new approved ratings.
In order to avoid a backlog of
requests for personnel actions just

-As part, of his Administration's
effort to "manage government more
efficiently" and thereby help to
restrain infhition, President Jimmy
Carter has issued a directive call-
ing for an indefinite limitation
on the hiring of Federal civilian
workers. ,
The Presidknt has asked, that all
t*'ederal agencies limit the number
of new full-time permanent ap-
pbintments to not more than 50
percent of the new vacancies oc
ourring after .October 25, 1978.
This means that for each two new
vacancies that an agency has, only
one new permanent employee nuiy
he appointed. '
Contracting out is not to be used
as a means of alleviating the effect
of the hiring limitation, nor will
temporary employees he used as a
substitute-for full-time permanent
employees. This'curtailment of Fed-
eralhiring is in keeping with the in-
tent of the Civil.Service Reform Act
of 1978 which calls for a reduction
in total Federal employment to the
level that existed on September 30,
1977. '

The Presidents directive is to be
carried out in a way that protects
the operations in each agency that
directly affect the public, such as
Social Security claims processing
and check issuance and veterans'
benefit payments. Heads of execu-
tive departments and agencies have
been urged to assign their staffs
"where the need is greatest, so that
vital and basic services may con-
tinue uninterrupted." As nmch of
the impact as possible is to be ab-
sorbed in the support and overhead
operations within the agency.

At Annual Turkey Bowl on Thanksgiving EVE

Stephen Zucchi and Marisa Morgan pull garden duty at Balboa Elementary

them to begin another garden at
theotherendof thecourtyard.Last
year each teacher in the school had
a turn at receiving a rose delivered
to the classroom ddor.
The rose garden is not the first of
Follet's school projects to attract at-
tention. Four years ago his sixth
graders staged the meniorable "egg
drop from the third flooi:" Fach stu-
dent in the chass had been told to
package a raw egg in a shoebox in
such a way that it could be dropped
three stories without breaking.
Owing to incredibly imaginative
packaging, 17 orit of 25 eggs made
successful landings.

special plant food guaranteed to give
their roses vim and vigor.
Follet expects his students to
spend a full 15 minutes on the rose
bushes. If all the gardening work
is. done, he encourages them to sit
and talk to the plants. All of the
children are required to take their
turn at giving the rose bushes the
necessary tender loving care. So far,.
he says, no student has complained
about leaving class to do so.
The children are learninghow to
take cuttings froni the bushes by
reading a book on roses kept in the
classroom. Their teacher roots the
cuttings and has hopes of using

of activities during half-time tenta-
tively include a skydiving display
by parachutists of the Air Force
and the Army.
Tickets, $1.80 for adults and 50
cents for students, will be available
at the Protocol Office in the Admin-
istration Building; at the box office
on the evening of the game; at the
Balboa Retail Store and Corozal
Commissary, and other locations in
the Canal Zone. Refreshments will
be sold. .

The annual Turkey Bowl flag
football game between officers of
the Army and Air Force will be
played at Balboa Stadium at 7:30
p.m. Wednesday, November 22.
All proceeds from the game will
be presented to the Canal Zone

A trophy will be awarded to the

tating Turkey Bowl Trophy.

was washed out and the water
looked like a seething whirlpool."
Connor and a man named Smith,
who had asked to join him at the
last moment, launched the cayuca
into the middle of the turbulence.
Their craft was tossed and whirled
about repeatedly, and at times the
waves were so high they shut out
the view of the banks and the
crowds that were watching. But
the two men managed the passage
successfully and were followed
shortly thereafter by a skiff and
several launches.
The Canal adventure was not
Frank Connor's only feat of derring
do or claim to fame. Lucille recalls
hearing tales of her father's trip to
the Amazon with 300 others on be-
half of the U.S. Government. Only
11 returned, and not a word was
heard from Connor until he turned
up in a U.S. hospital nine months
later, sick and many pounds lighter.
Connor left the Canal Zone a
few months before the Canal open-
ed, lured away by an -offer from
Henry Ford to be an engineer in
his factory in Detroit. Frank Con-
nor died in an automobile accident
in Michigan in 1938, an ironic end-
ing for a man who had faced danger
with such abandon.

Lucille came back to the Isthmus
for the first time 20 years ago with
husband Bill Miller, a Chicago art
director and lecturer with whom
she lived and travelled for 25 years.
She visited Empire Hotel, where
her mother and sisters had been bil-
leted upon their arrival in 1911. The
owner, an old woman even then,
was still alive and remembered the
Connor family.
It was Bill Miller who rescued
Lucille from an unhappy marriage
to photographer Gunner George, a
student of famous documentary
photographer Arnold Genthe, and
who built her a magnificent home
in Barrington, Illinois that had two
live trees growing through the mid-
dle of it. The first of its kind, the
house was featured in House Beau-
tiful. When Miller retired, he mtro-
duced Lucille to the joys of living
in Hawaii, and she resides there to
. this day.
Having raised three children and
outlived four husbands, Lucille
now spends most of her time travel-
ling. She has seen a great deal of
the wprld but still has a yen to see
and do more. From her father, she
says, she learned one great lesson:

George Miller Wimbush is the
daughter of Frank Connor, a loco-
motive engineer whose adventur-
ous spirit -led him to be the first
man to brave the swirling waters of
Gatun Lake as they rushed into the
Canal after Gamboa Dike was
blowit away.
Something of an Adventurer her_
self, Lucille has been a photogra-
pher's model, "Miss Chevrolet," and,
in her own words, has "made a
career of marriage." ,
Her father came to the Isthinus
in 1910, followed akyear later by
his Mexican wife and daughters
Jennie and Amelia. Baby Lucille
was born in the Canal Zone in 1912
at Panama General Hospital, later
renamed Gorgas Hospital after its
first administrator.
At the throttle of his engine pull-
ing train loads of dirt-and rock from
the bottom of the Canal, Frank
Connor dreamed for months of be-
ing the first man through the dike
when this last barricade between

the two oceans was destroyed. On
October 10, 1913, his dreams came
true. --
Thousands of Canal employees.
and their families lined the banks
of the Canal and nearby hills that
day, waiting, breathlessly for Pres-
ident Wilson in Washington, D.C.
to press the button that would set
off the dynarbite and join the

oceans. They had come from every
direction, many on the free trans-
portation furnished by the railroad.
Connor was among them, nego-
tiating with some Indians for the
rental of a cliyuco to use the mo-
ment the explosives had gone off.
But with the water in Gatun Lake
six feet higher than that in the
Canal, any attempt to navigate the
raging flood that would follow the
explosion seemed like suicide, a
sure loss of both man and boat.
The Indians would not rent, and
Connor was forced to buy the eight-
foot dugout for $8.
He described the events that fol-
lowed in an interview later for a
New Orleans paper: -
"Three moving picture machines
were on' the scene, and at a signal
they were started. I was standing
on the tender of an engine where I
could get a good view and saw the
dike lifted bodily out of its place
and thrown straight up in the air
for a distance of 150 feet. It settled
back almost in the exact spot from
where it was thrown."
"The waters of the lake leaped
forward and before the mass of ma-
terial had settled back to earth, a
huge stream was rushing into the
Canal. In a few minutes the dirt

Roses are red and pink and yellow,

School rose garden. Imported from
France and bearing such illustrious
names as Christian Dior, Super Star

grandellr, the rose bushes occupy

The garden is the annual class ,
project of sixth graders in Erank
Follet's rooin. Follet says the idea
of growing roses was no doubt
planted in his mind years ago when
as a boy in Vermont he watched
his grandfather tend them as a
hobby. But it was just two years ago
.that the idea took root and became
a reality.*
After reading up on the subject,
Follet bought several rose bushes
at Summit Gardens and had his stu-
dents plant the courtyard.
Under his guidance, it was also their
responsibility to care for the plants.
All of the bushes sur-
vived, an amazing accomplishment,
he said, considering the quality of -
the soil and the poor drainage in .
the courtyard. He credits the suc-
cess of the g:irden to the absence ofa
ants and to the presence of strong
sunlight five or six hours of the day.
Each week two students are as-
signed the task of tending the
garden for 15 minutes a day. They
trot down to the courtyard from
their room on the third floorio pull
weeds, loosen up the ground with
a rake, pick insects off the leaves
. and ppray the plants with pesticide.

Another questioner brought up
the matter of Canal Zone College
and the likelihood that when the
SDepartment of Defense assumes re-
sponsibility for the schools systern
tuitions will be increased to sitch an
extent that the College will he put
out of business. .
The Ambassador said he planned
to talk this problem over with DOD
and that he realized that if the
tuition rate is too high -the opera-
tion would becomeunfeasible. If
the determination is made that the
College is worth keeping, he said,
we should not take steris that would
kill it. "I don't know what can he

Another member of the audience
predicted that DOD would, raise
rates anyway and was not really
concerned with keeping it. The
Canal Zone College affects life in
the Canal Zone, he said, and its
disappearance would be contrary to
the treaty statement that terms and
conditions of employment will be
"no less favorable.

Earlier, the Ambassador had met
with dock workers'and with doctors

about future conditions of employ-

tion or participation in the decision-
makmg process.
The Ambassador \vas sympathetic
to both groupsand said he could
readily understand their concerns,
but could not speak for DOD, which
will assume responsibility for the
hospitals. In.the case of the dock
workers, he referred many of the
questions to Transportation and Ter-
.minals director Charles R. Clark,
who told them that as chairman of
the Ports and Railroad Planning
Subcommittee, he has relayed their
concerns to his Panamanian counter-
parts. He pointed out that the Gov-

Ulte a Stir at Cdeteries on Thanksgiving Day

If you are irr a dither just think-
ing about all the activity involved
in the preparation of the traditional
turkey dinner on Thanksgiving pay '
consider the stir in the kitchens at
the Balboa and Margarita cafeterias
where cooks will be bustling from
before-dawn to prepare more than
a thousand dinners for those who
choose to eat Thanksgiving dinner
out. '
Cooks and their helpers at Bal-
boa Cafeteria will start at 5 a.m. to
bake some 30 hefty birds weighing
from 20 to 30 pounds each, six to

le ts, 1 1 dpotu )ls steamship
juicy meat. In addition, they may
prepare roast leg of lamb and the
everyday fish fare, for those diners
who don't like turkey, ham or beef.
They will mix about 60 pounds
of savory dressing and make some
30 gallons of giblet gravy. Bakers
will turn out at least 150 pumpkin
pies, 60 mincemeat pies and a batch
of apple-raisin pies. Most of the pie
shells will have been made ahead
of time and all they have to do is
fill them. ,
Of course, Thanksgiving dinner
will be served with all the trim-
mings including cranberry sauce,
sweet potatoes, corn and reas. And
as in past years, turkey dinners
prepared at the BAlboa Cafeteria
will be served to the prisoners at
the Balboa jail.
About 25 big turkeys will be
prepared at the Margarita Cafete-
ria where some 300 Atlantic sides
are expected to have their Thanks-
givyng dinner, the majority dining
at midday.

In addition to the turkeys, cooks
will bake six big hams, roast sev-
eral prime ribs of beef and make
dressing, gravy, arid all the usual
trimmings that make Thanksgiving
dinner a special feast on-the Amer_
ican table.
. Bakers at Margarita Cafeteria
plan to make at least 200 pumpkin
pies this year, makiAg sure that they
will not be caught short as hap-
glened last year. They also will bake
about 30 apple pies and a dozen or
so mincemeat pies_

this work, why should you heather?
