throughout the many years with the
exception of five years, 1942-47,
when he served with the.Army in
Europe and in the Pacific.
Holding positions of increasing
responsibility in all phases of the

position classifier, was a salary and

the Canal Zone Heart Fund and an
active member of the Combined

noontime and evening activities.
When he isn't jogging, he rides his
bicycle and chalks up an average
of 30 miles a week jogging and 30
miles on his bike. Frick is a mem-
ber of the Isthmnan Road Runners

Governor Seeks Major RIF Retirement Benefits For


All Employees of Canal Organization Starting April 1


The implementing legislation and
the Canal Zone College were the
two big issues last Friday at the
Governor's executive session with
representatives of Canal Zone civic
councils. The meeting was the last
for this calendar year.
Gov. H. R. Parfitt told the repre-
sentatives that he has impressed
upon his, contacts in Washington,
D.C. the urgent need for early con-
sideration of the treaty implement-
ing legislation. He added, however,
that he is doubtful that it will re-
ceive very early passage because

Protected by double safety lines as

lamps at Mount Hope Stadium. The
routine maintenance of the flood-
lights also involved the Canal's
Electrical Division, which repaired
fixtures where necessary. If the
weather cooperates, all work will he
completed today.


Panamanian Open Market
Handicrafts and artifacts made in
Panama are now on sale at an open
market in the parking area of the
El Dorado Shopping Mall in Panama
City.
The market is open every day-
from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m.
Featuring the work of Panamarian
artisans, the open market will con-
tinue through December 23.


members of the Congress will want
to scrutinize it carefully. Beginning
next year, he said, congressional
delegations will probably make fact-
finding missions to the Canal Zone
in regard to the implementing legis-
lation.
The Governor said he had re-
ceived no indication that the ben-
efits to employees written into the
legislation would be considered by
Congress to be overly generous and
he hoped that they would not be a
source of difficulty in gaining pas-
sage. The more difficult issues, he
said, seem to be those concerning
organizational details of the Com-
mission and financial matters.
Because of the anticipated delay
in the legislation, which contains an
early retirement package, the Gov-
ernor is requesting that the Civil
Service Commission approve offer-
ing all eligible Canal organization
employees -the retirement options
available under "Major RIF" proce-
(lures.
In accordance with Commission
regulations, when a major RIF is
declared, Canal employees would be
entitled on or after April 1, 1979, to
retire on a voluntary basis with
25 years of service regardless of
age or with 20 yeas6 of service at
50 years of age. There would lbe a
reduction in annuity of .2 percent
per year for each year any such
retiree is under 55 years of age.
Although this would be very
helpful, the Governor Continued
that many employees would be
better off waiting for the im-
plementing legislation, which if
passed will offer more generous
benefits than those available under


a major RIF. The draft legislation
provides for early retirement with
23 years of service regardless of age
or 18 years of service ,at age 48
with no reduction in annuity for
age.
Additionally, an employee with
20 years of service, regardless of
age may retire if he is separated
involuntarily, again with no reduc-
tion in annuity for age.
The future of the Canal Zone
College was a topic of great concern
to the civic representatives. The
Treaty provides for the College to
be operated by the Department
of Defense. The issue concerning
the community representatives was
whether the new tuition fee struc-
ture, known as the Ferguson rate,
under consideration by DOD would
be so high that the school would-
price itself out of business..-
Governor Parfitt said that he,
Ambassador Moss and General Mc-
Auliffe are supportive of efforts to
keep the College viable.
Near the close of the civic council
meeting, the Governor was handed
a note outlining the latest develop-
ments on the issue. Progress was
reported on a scheme to provide a
more favorable rate structure than
that under original consideration.
The Governor noted that this was
encouraging news but the details
were unclear. He furfhe. stated that
specific information would be
published as soon as it became
available.
For several of the representatives
the Friday meeting was their last
executive session with the Governor.
They took the opportunity to thank

Forestry Aids

To Help Police

A team of six forestry aids have
been employed by the Canal Zone
Police Division to assist police offi-
cers who have the primary respon-
sibility in the implementing of the
recently launched anti-deforestation
program. The program is aimed at
controlling and preventing further
destruction 9f the forest area-in the
Canal Zone.
The forestry aids will accompany
and assist the police officers in the
search for any type of deforestation
such as the cutting down of trees-
and slash-and-btrn farming activity
that for years has caused forestal
destruction in the watershed's land
area.
A 21-year-old woman is among
the three forestry aids who are grad-
uates of the 2-year forestry program
at the University of Panama. Two
are graduates of Canal Zone College
and one received his training at
Hawkeye Institute of Technology
at Waterloo, Iowa. All members of
the team are bilingual, a prerequi-
site of the job.
The forestry aids will be trained
in radio communications and re-
ceive instruction on the type of de-
Sstruction to look for in the forest.
Most of their training will be on
'the job. Their work schedule in-
cludes an 8-hour day, 40 hours a
week, weekends and' holidays in-
cluded. They wear the bush type-
uniform consisting of denim shirt
and jeans.
Inaddition to ground patrolling,
the 'f6restry__aids accompany police
officers' in boats to areas of possible
deforestation and there are tentative
plans for them to board helicopters
for air surveillance of the forest
areas.


USO-1 Classes

Registration is currently in pro-
gress for a number of new classes
starting soon at the USO-J on La
Boca.Road.
Among these are a beginner's
class in Mid-East dancing which
meets on Mondays from 5 to 6:15
p.m.; 10-week courses in preballet
for ages 3 to 6 and classical ballet
for ages 7 to 10; and neo-impres-
sionist art classes for those who have
basic knowledge of sketching.,
Beginning in January, there will
be new classes in beginner's con-
versational and intermediate con-
versational Spanish. Also in Jan-
uary, a new class in disco dancing
that has been so popular will be
formed.
The History of Jews lecture series
presented at 7:30 p.m. each Wed-
nesday by Rabbi Jean Jacques Reiss
is another interesting activity at the
USO-J. This lecture series is free
to the public.
For additional information on the
social and cultural events at the

-through earphones to a tape-record-
ed story.
The scene just described is, an
ordinary one at Fort Clayton El-
ementiry School. .The childrenn,
however, are spectjl. They are pre-
schoolers whose physical develop-
ment, andconsequiently their men-
tal development, is lagging behind
their chronological age. They num-
ber about thirty and are enrolled
in the Division of Schools' Pre-
school Special Education Program.
The reasons for their delayed
development and the severity of
their disorders are as varied as the
children's physical appearances.
Some of them suffer from neurolog-
ical conditions; others have been
held back by serious illnesses; and
still others are simply slow to
mature.
The Special Education Program
is aimed at giving these children as


'early as possible the. sensory stim-
ulation necessary both for normal
physical development and for learn-
ing. It is coordinated by educational
prescriptionist Sue Vest and staffed
by speech pathologist Charlotte
Kersiek, physical therapist Leonor
Richey and pre-academic enhance-
ment teacher Sandra Benjamin. But
the backbone of the efforts is the
volunteers-needed on a daily basis
to work individually with the chil-
-dren. As one teacher put it, "Each
child is a full time job."
Among the activities used to
stimulate the children into growth
is patterning. Based on the concept
that a normal child goes through
certain levels of development 'ach
of which leads to the next higher
level, patterning emphasizes crawl-
ing as an important step,to walking
and balance and even seeing prop-
erly. Irn patterning, a child is placed
upon a mat on a table and volun-
\teers manipulate his arms, legs and
head in the motions normally in-
volved, in the movement of crawl-
ing. The theory behind it is that if
the motions are repeated often
enough, the pattern will be traced


on the brain; and the brain will
eventually take over and direct the
muscles to make the motions. Then
the next level of development, walk-
ing, can be more easily attained.
But five pairs of hands are need-
ed to pattern one child, and cur-
rently'nine of the children at Fort
Clayton are being patterned. The
need for volunteers who can give
even one morning a week to this
:activity is keenly felt-: Some of the
volunteers 'presently involved have
been helping for years; others are
new, some of them mothers whose
children have just enrolled in the
program. All are welcome, no ex-
perience necessary. A training pro-
gram is offered for newcomers.
Patterning is not, the only ,area
'in which volunteers are put to
work. They 'are needed in the art
room, where children develop mo-
tor skills by working with clay,
cutting and pasting in the story
area, where tl;ey learn listening
skills, a precursor to reading; in the
self-help area, where children learn
to tietheir own shoes and button
their buttons; in the toy area, where
they learn to manipulate toys with


their hands; in the gross motor area,
where children swing on monkey
bars and walk a beam to learn bal-
ance and position in space concepts;
and in the pre-academic area, where
they are taught shapes, colors, num-
bers and letters as preparation for
reading, writing and arithmetic.
The atmosphere at the school is
busy but cheerful. Parents and chil-
dren come and go all day long. The
attitude is.one of hopefulness.
And the results? For some of the
children, perhaps only a lucky few,
the Special Education Program
means one day they-will be able to
do what other kids are doing at the


same age: walking, talking, dressing
themselves, and attending a regular
kindergarten without getting into a
cycle of failure. Others of the chil-
dren will be able to go on to at-
tend kindergarten while continuing
to get special supplementary help.
And still others will need further
special education for a long time
to come.
For their parents, their teachers
and their volunteers, the hours of
effort will mean the satisfaction of
knowing that everything that can
be done is being done to help these
special children develop to their
full potential.

Los talents musicales de Jacque-

que ha El Gobernador dijo que no habia
os con recibido ning'n indicio que los be-
cesidad neficios a los empleados incluidos
lo mas en la ley serian vistos por el Con-
greso como demasiado generosos y
que esperaba que no presentarian
obsticulos a su aprobaci6n. Los
temas mis dificiles, dijo, parecen
ser aquellos que se relacionan con
los detalles organicos de la Comi-
si6n y-con los asuntos econ6micos.
Debido a la demora anticipada
en la ley, que contiene el plan para
la jubilaci6n anticipada, el Gober-
nador estA solicitando a la Comisi6n
del Servicio Civil que d6 su aproba-
ci6n para ofrecer a todo empleado
eligible de la organizaci6n del
Canal las opciones disponibles-bajo
los procedimientos de un "RIF" (re-
ducci6n de personal) mayor.
Seg6n los-Reglamentos de la Co-
misi6n, si se declara un "RIF"
mayor, los empleados del Canal
tendrian derecho, desde el 19 de
abril de 1979 en adelante a jubilar-
se voluntariamente con 25 afios de
servicio a cualquier edad o con 20
afios de servicio a los 50 afios de
edad. Habria una reducci6n de 2 por
ciento de la pension por cada afio
qlue le falte al jubilado para cum-
plir los 55 afios de edad.
Aunque esto seria de gran ayuda,
el Gobernador continue diciendo
que muchos de los empleados es-
tarfan en mejores circunstancias si
esperasen la ley para la ejecuci6n
del tratado, la cual, si es aprobada
ofrecera mayores beneficios que los


que recibiria en caso de un RIF
mayor. El proyecto de la ley de eje-
cuci6n_contempla la jubilaci6n an-
ticipada con 23 afios de servicio a
cuilquier edad o-18 ailos de servicio
a los 48 afios de edad sin ninguna
reducci6n en la pension por edad.
Ademas, un cmpleado con 20 afos
de servicio, a cualquier edad puede
jubilarse si es separado involunta-
riamente, tambi6n sin reducci6n de
pension por edad.
El future de la Universidad de
la Zona del Canal fue un tema de
sumo internss para los representan-
tes de los consejos civicos. El-tra-
tado estipula que-la Universidad
estara-bajo la administraci6n del
Departamento de Defensa. El pro-
blema que preocupa a los represen-
tantes de comunidades es si la nue-
va estructura de matricula, conoci-
da como la tarifa Ferguson, bajo
consideraci6n por el Depatamento
de Defense seria tan elevada que
la escuela tendria que cerrar.
El Gobernador Parfitt dijo que
61, el Embajador Moss y el General
McAuliffe apoyan los esfuerzos de
mantener la universidad viable.
Poco antes de concluir la reunion
del consejo civico, el Gobernador
recibi6 una nota delineando los
Altimos acontecimientos sobre el
problema. Se inform sobre el pro-
greso alcanzado en un plan de ela-
borar una estructura de tarifas mis
favorable que el que originalmente
se pens6 implantar.
'El Gobernador observ6 que esta
noticia era alentadora pero los de-
talles no estaban claros. Dijo, que
se publicaria informaci6n especi-
fica tan pronto como se obtenga.

Joy Morrison no conoce los benefi-
cios de gatear, pero para ell, es
muy divertido.


El juego de Charlene Caler de apailar con las maestras Sandra Benjamin,

vision y audition y la adiestra en el uso de sus misculos.


El Trabajo es Divertido Para Voluntarias de Educaci6n Especial


Un nifio de piel morena y sonrisa
grande salta felizmente en un tram-
polin. Una nifia de rizos rubios con
anteojos juega con una pelota. Un
nifiito pequefiito vestido con un ma-
meluco rojo inserta tuquitos en una
tabla con huecos. Un nifio y una
nifia de ojos series y obscures escu-
chan atentamente el relato de un
cuento por medio de los audifonos.

Las razones para su retraso y la
gravedad de sus desajustes son tan

cas. Algunos sufren de condiciones
neurol6gicas; algunos han 'sufrido
enfermedades graves que les han
impedido el desarrollo y otros sim-
plemente son lentos en el aprendi-
zaje.
El Program de Educaci6n Espe-

alg6n dia ellos podrAn hacer lo que
otros nifios de la misma edad estAn
hacienda: caminar, hablar, vestirse,
y asistir a un kinder sin caer en un

avanzada durante largo tiempo.
Para sus 'padres, maestros y vo-
