Going DOD? Too

Much Leave May

Pose a Problem
Employees are reminded of the
need to submit leave requests early
so that supervisors can prepare leave
schedules that will best accommo-
date leave requests of all employees
and minimize disruptions to the
Employees are also reminded that
while leave can be accumulated up
to a maximum of 760 hours by the
end of the leave year, hours in ex-
cess of 760 are forfeited. If, because
of the requirements of the service,
employees cannot be permitted to
take scheduled leave in order to
reduce their leave balance to 760
hours by the end of the leave year,
special exceptions may be author-
ized by the lieutenant governor to
permit carrying over the excess
leave to the following year. Re-
quests for such exceptions are con-
sidered individually on the basis of
written justifications submitted by
management officials through the
personnel director.
Employees who will be trans-
ferred to a Department of Defense.
(DOD) activity are cautioned that
although they can transfer leave in
excess of 760 hours, they should not
carryover so much leave that they
would expect to be on leave for a
significant length of time between
October 1, 1979 and January 12,
1980 which is the period between
the effective dates of the transfer of
function and the end of the 1979
leave year. It is quite likely that
during that period, it will be diffi-

New Pilot Launches Cost Canal Company $1.5 Million

The new pilot launch Cormorant
arrived this week at Pier 14, Cris-
tobal to join the Canal's fleet of 32
launches and utility boats.
The first of 9 launches being con-
structed for the Panama Canal by
the Dravo Steelship Corp. of Pine

Bluff, Ark., the Cormorant arrived
at Cristobal under its own power,
driven by a 230 horsepower Detroit
diesel engine. A second pilot launch,
the Darter, is due on the Isthmus
at the end of this month and the
remaining 7 are expected at the

of the new boats expected to be on
the Isthmus by January 1980.
Constructed at a cost of $1.5
million or approximately $174,000
each, the launches are 48 feet long,
have a beam of 13 feet and weigh
25 tons. Built to comply with U.S.
Coast Guard requirements, they are
of a standard pilot launch design
originally procured from the Glad-
ding Hearne Shipbuilding Co. of
Somerset, Mass.
Because of the hull design, the
launches are stable and can with-
stand rough seas in the outer an-
chorage and are safer for embarking
and disembarking in these condi-
tions. They have a speed of 12 miles
an hour, fuel capacity of 1,000 gal-
lons of diesel and are equipped

Sixth in a series of reports on the
work of the binational subcommit-
tees preparing for implementation
of the Panama Canal treaties on
October 1.
With entry into force of the trea-
ties, the Panama Canal Commission
must cease operation of all com-
mercial services currently carried
on by the Panama Canal Com-
pany/Canal Zone Government. On
that date, 19 units, including retail
stores, gasoline stations, bowling
alleys, movie theaters and vending
sites, will be transferred to the
Republic of Panama.
The mission of the Commercial
Services Subcommittee, under the
leadership of U.S. Co-chairman
Jack Corrigan and his Panamanian
counterpart Roberto Heurtematte,
is to develop plans for the transfer
of installations and services and to
insure the continuation of those
services specifically mentioned in
the treaty. In addition, the sub-
committee is consulting with rep-
resentatives of the Army & Air
Force Exchange Service and the
Army commissary system, since
U.S.-citizen employees will have
access to these facilities for five
years from the day the treaty is
The major facilities that will go
to Panama on October 1 are: Bal-
boa theater, annex, cafeteria and
bowling alley; La Boca gas station
and vehicle maintenance section;
Coco Solo theater, housewares an-
nex, furniture store, gas station and
vehicle maintenance section; Parai-
so commissary, theater and gas sta-
tion; Gamboa theater and super-
market; Rainbow City superette
and theater; and the Pacific Lunch-
The treaty specifically requires
that Panama continue to provide
"recreational and entertainment

activities comparable to those cur-
rently provided" at Balboa bowling
alley, cafeteria and theater for the
life of the treaty. Corrigan said that
Panamanian subcommittee mem-
bers have expressed their intention
to provide service equal to that
which Canal employees are pre-
sently receiving.
While the operation of similar
facilities in other townsites is not
required by the treaty, Corrigan
said that Panama feels a commit-
ment to continue providing ad-
equate services in order to main-
tain the quality of life for residents.
Panama has agreed that the
Commission can enter into an ar-
rangement with a private operator
for the Balboa Heights cafeteria
and the Margarita complex, which
includes a bowling alley, theater
and cafeteria, because the build-
ings housing these operations are
being retained by the Commission.
He said that Panamanian mem-
bers of the subcommittee acknowl-
.edge the right of the Commission
to determine the quality and quan-
tity of food served in establish-
ments catering to its employees.
Both Margarita and Balboa cafe-
terias will continue the hot meals/
box lunch program for employees
working unscheduled overtime in
excess of two hours and for pri-
soners in Balboa and Cristobal jails.

Peter F. Marotta, right, receives a suggestion award and check from
Engineering and Construction Director Col. J. J. Plunkett. A mate, dredge,
with the Dredging Division, Marotta suggested using stainless steel bands
to prolong the useful service life of timber used in the pipeline of the suction
dredge "Mindi." The check for $830 is the highest monetary award given
by the Panama Canal this fiscal year. Marotta's suggestion will save the
Canal organization an estimated $40,000 a year. A graduate of the Canal's
Apprenticeship Program,-Marotta has been with the Dredging Division for
the past four and a half years. In addition to his official duties, he has been
active as a First Aid and CPR instructor and is a student pilot. He and his
wife Cindy have two sons, Christopher and Jesse.

New Pilot Launches
(Continued from p. 1)

nine new launches is a self-
charging, high-pressure hydraulic
starting system that eliminates the
maintenance of batteries. In an
emergency situation, the engine can
be started by a hand pump that
charges the accumulator.
The launches also are equipped
with keel-coolers that are recessed
into the hull, which no longer neces-
sitates salt water for cooling the
engine. A dry exhaust eliminates en-
gine valve maintenance caused by
salt/vapor deposits.
An outstanding feature on the
new launches is a fuel conservation
factor consisting of an alarm system
that has been installed on the en-
gine which turns on upon exceeding
1,600 rpm. This feature, which is
expected to save approximately 30
to 40 percent of fuel consumption,
does not negate the use of full

Six of the new launches are pilot
launches that will be used to trans-
port pilots to transiting vessels and
three are pilot passenger launches

Observatory Is Open

Come Get Starry-Eyed
Isthmians will be happy to know
that the Canal Zone Observatory
has opened for the 1979 dry season.
On Sunday and Tuesday evening
from 7 to 9 p.m., Division of Schools
audio visual supervisor Wes Seaquist
will lecture, answer questions and
point out the interesting astronom-
ical sights in the skies.
The observatory is located in the
vicinity of the Miraflores Filtration
Plant. Call 52-3382 during regular
office hours to make arrangements
for group visits.

(Continued from p. 1)
ployees of the Commission and
their families will have on the
Army commissary system, the mil-
itary has agreed to operate the
Balboa and Coco Solo supermar-
kets on a five-day a week, eight-
hour a day basis. Corrigan ex-
plained that the schedule will over-
lap with the commissaries at Fort
Gulick and Corozal to give em-
ployees six days a week of super-
market shopping. He estimates that
the military will get $6 million a
year in Canal organization super-
market business after October 1.
The Commission will keep both
the Balboa shoestore and House-
wares building to use as office
space. The Army & Air Force Ex-
change Service will expand facil-
ities at Albrook to meet customer
needs in these areas. At present,
military personnel and Department
of Defense civilians account for 50
percent of the sales at the Balboa
shoestore and 21 percent at the
Balboa Housewares section.
Corrigan said the military is
planning a tri-level store that will
sell furniture from Taiwan, from
the United States, and rattan fur-
niture from the Philippines and a
"four-seasons" store that will sell
outdoor furniture, sporting goods,
barbecue equipment and other
goods for outdoor living.
Gatun superette, vending site
and theater will be retained by the
Commission and used as a com-
munity center, and Gamboa and
Gatun gas stations will be kept to
service official vehicles only.
The Division of Storehouses will
remain intact to serve the needs of
the Commission; however, retail
sales to individual customers, such
as take place at Sections B and I,
will no longer be allowed.
The merchandise convenience
sections at Gorgas and Coco Solo
hospitals will be transferred along
with the hospitals themselves to
the Health Services Command of
the Department of the Army. The
Balboa Optical Shop will close on
October 1, and the work will be
handled at Fort Clayton by a post
exchange concessionaire.
Because 93 percent of the vol-
ume of work done at the Ancon
Laundry is for Canal Zone schools
and Gorgas Hospital, the laundry
will also be transferred to the De-
partment of the Army to be used
as an institutional facility.

Tambibn se les recuerda a los
empleados que cualquier exceso
del maximo de 760 horas anuales
de vacaciones se perdera. Si por
razones de trabajo a un empleado
no se le permit tomar vacaciones
para reducir el balance a 760 horas
para fines del afio, el Vicegoberna-

Peter F. Marotta, a la derecha, recibe un cheque y un premio del Coronel
J. J. Plunkett, titular de la Direcci6n de Ingenieria y Construcci6n. Marotta,
quien es piloto de draga de la Divisi6n de Dragado, sugiri6 usar bandas de
acero inoxidable para prolongar el servicio de vida 6til de la madera usada
en las tuberias de la draga de succi6n "Mindi". El cheque por un monto
de $830 es el premio monetario mas grande otorgado por la empresa del
Canal este afio fiscal. La sugerencia de Marotta le ahorrara a la organizaci6n
del Canal aproximadamente $40,000 al afio. Marotta se gradu6 del Pro-
grama de Aprendizaje del Canal y ha estado con la Divisi6n de Dragado los
6ltimos cuatro aiios y seis meses. Ademis de sus deberes oficiales, Marotta
participa en actividades de Primeros Auxilios, es instructor de resucitaci6n
cardio-pulmonar, y esti realizando su practice como aviador. Su esposa
Cindi y 61 tienen dos hijos, Christopher y Jesse.

El Canal Adquiere Lanchas
(Viene de la pdgina 1)

Una de las caracteristicas nota-
bles de estas 9 lanchas es un sistema
de arranque hidraulico de alta pre-
si6n que se carga por si mismo.
Este sistema elimina el manteni-
miento de baterias. En situaciones
de emergencia, el motor puede ser
arrancado con una bomba manual
que carga el acumulador.
Las lanchas estAn equipadas tam-
bi6n con enfriadores de quillas in-
crustadas en el casco, lo cual hace
innecesario usar agua de mar para
enfriar el motor. Un sistema de es-
cape seco elimina el efecto de los
dep6sitos de sal y vapor en las
Otra caracteristica sobresaliente
de las nuevas lanchas es un factor
de conservaci6n de combustible que
consiste en un sistema de alarma
que funciona cuando el motor so-
brepasa las 1,600 rpm (revoluciones
por minute). Se espera que esta ca-
racteristica ayude a ahorrar entire
el 30 y el 40 por ciento del consume
de combustible. Sin embargo, la

La Comisi6n retendra tanto el
edificio del Almac6n de Venta de
Calzado como el del Almac6n de
Venta de Articulos para el Hogar
para utilizarlos como oficinas. El
Servicio de Ventas al Detal del
Ej6rcito y la Fuerza Abrea amplia-
ra las facilidades en Albrook para
satisfacer las necesidades de la
clientele en estos sectors. Actual-
mente, el personal military y los
empleados civiles del Departamen-
to de Defensa suman un 60 por
ciento de las ventas totales que
efectda el almac6n de calzados de
Balboa y 21 por ciento de las que
efectia la secci6n dd ventas de
articulos para el hogar de Balboa.
Corrigan agreg6 que los milita-
res tienen proyectado un almac6n
de tres niveles donde habra mue-
bles de Taiwan y de los Estados
Unidos, muebles de-ratAn de las
Filipinas y una tienda de las "cua-
tro estaciones" donde venderan
muebles de patio, equipo deporti-
vo, equipo de barbacoa y demis
enseres para uso exterior.
El puesto de venta de Gat6n,
las miquinas de expendios y el tea-

cerrara el 19 de octubre y de alli
en adelante un concesionario del
servicio de ventas al detal en Fuer-

Ya que el 93 por ciento del vo-
