Most RIF'ed Employees Will Keep Grade and Salary

And now some good news for the
approximately 800 Canal employ-
ees currently scheduled to be
demoted in October because of the
reduction in force. These employees
will reap the benefits of new grade
and pay retention rules contained in
the Civil Service Reform Act.
Previously, an employee had to
serve two years in a grade or grades
higher than the one to which
downgraded in order to be entitled
to salary retention. Under sal-
ary retention regulations an em-
ployee's rate o' pay was retained
when he or she was downgraded to a
position having a maximum rate of
pay. which was less than the
employee's existing rate. If demoted
more than three grades, a formula

was used to determine the pay to be
retained. Salary retention had a
duration of two years only. At the
end of the two-year period the
employee began to receive the
scheduled rate of the maximum step
of the grade to which demoted.
Under the new Civil Service
Reform regulations there is protec-
tion for the demoted employee in
two ways-through grade retention
and through pay retention.
Grade retention. To be eligi-
ble for grade retention an employee
demoted through RIF must have
served at least 52 consecutive weeks
at a grade or grades higher than the
one to which demoted. Grade
retention means that for two years-
following demotion the employee

will receive any scheduled step
increases and comparability pay
adjustments that the employee
otherwise would have received in
the grade held prior to demotion.
After two years the employee
becomes entitled to pay retention.
Pay retention. There are two
ways an employee can become
eligible for pay retention. The first,
as described above, is at the end of
the two-year period of grade
retention. The second is if the
employee is not eligible for grade
retention because he or she has less
than the minimum of 52 consecutive
weeks in the grade held prior to
Pay retention means that for an
indefinite period the employee

retains either the rate of basic pay
held at the end of the grade
retention period or 150 percent of
the maximum step-rate of the grade
to which demoted, whichever is
less. While on pay retention, an
employee receives 50 percent of the
comparability pay increases for the
maximum step of the grade to
which demoted. When the rate thus
earned by the employee becomes
equal to or lower than the rate
payable for the highest step of the
lower grade, pay retention ends and
he or she will begin receiving full
comparability pay increases.
For the employee who, when
demoted, has less than the min-
imum of 52 consecutive weeks in a
higher grade the pay retention

benefits are as described above,
except that the starting retained pay
rate is the rate of basic pay received
immediately prior to demotion.
There are some cases where pay
retention rules do not apply. These
are cases, for instance, where the
employee is demoted only one grade
and is able to "slot in" his or her pay
rate within the step range of,the
lower grade. In these cases the
employee, after "slotting in," begins
receiving the regular step increases
and full comparability adjustments
applicable to the lower grade
instead of receiving only 50 percent
of future increases.
An employee may elect in writing
at any time during a grade retention

Little Yahaira Hereira is bright-eyed and happy at accepting a service pin
on behalf of her godfather Bernard D. Headley from Gov. H. R. Parfitt,
but the five-year-old can't begin to fathom the 50 years of Canal service
that it recognizes. Headley, assistant commissary store manager at
Balboa Retail Store, marks a half a century with the Supply Division,
where he started out in 1929 as an office helper at Pedro Miguel
commissary. He made only $22.50 a month then, but jokes, "I wasn't
broke then like I am now." Witnessing the award is Richard D. Morgan,
acting director of the Supply and Community Service Bureau.

Free Post Office Boxes Among Military Postal Service Benefits

On October 1, the Canal Zone
Postal Service will be discontinued
in accordance with Treaty require-
ments. By that date, the Military
Postal Service will be expanded
locally to provide the services pre-
viously provided by the Canal Zone
Postal Service. Eight Air Post
Offices (APOs) will offer service to
U.S.-citizen employees of the Pan-
ama Canal Commission, as well as
to members of the U.S. military,
U.S.-citizen Department of De-
fense employees, and other in-
dividuals and groups as decided
upon by the United States and
Panama Joint Committee on postal
Patrons will be assigned boxes
free of charge, the location of which
will depend upon the individual's

place of residence, area of employ-
ment and the availability of boxes.
A listing of APOs, their locations
and the areas they will service
accompanies this article.
Patrons now renting boxes from
the Canal Zone Postal Service who
are authorized APO privileges will
be advised by mail how and when
they may obtain an APO box.
Those who want to maintain a
box outside of the APO system may
contact the Panamanian postal
authorities to arrange for box
rentals. All mail service for such
boxes would be provided by the
Panamanian postal system.
Military Postal Service officials
are working hard to insure that the
changeover on October I is accom-
plished without disrupting the flow

of mail and with the least possible
inconvenience to postal patrons.
While the Military Postal Service
will be providing basically the same
services as the Canal Zone Postal
Service does now, the costs will in
most cases be cheaper.
For instance, the Canal Zone
.Postal Service sells money orders at
progressive rates, up to $1.10.
Money order value is limited
to $300.
Under the Military Postal Serv-
ice, the U.S. Postal Service Military
Money Order will be sold for a flat
rate of 20 cents regardless of
denomination and will be available
for any value up to $400.
Costs for mailing packages will
be computed differently, too. Pre-
sently, the Canal Zone Postal Serv-

ice, by law, must charge the Zone 8
rate of postage for priority (air mail)
and fourth class parcels going to the
United States, regardless of the
The Military Postal Service.
-which has APO numbers out of
Miami, is considered an extension
of the Miami Post Office. There-
fore, when a customer mails a
package at an APO after October I.
he or she will effectively be mailing
it from Miami for the purpose of
figuring the postage.
If the package is going to any
address served by the Miami Post-
master, the customer pays the local
Zone rate. For example, based on
present Canal Zone Postal Service
postage rates, a 31-pound parcel
sent as Priority Mail to Miami will

cost $22.15, but after October 1, the
same parcel would only cost $9.03.
Another change is in the amount
of indemnity which may be pur-
chased for registered mail. The
Canal Zone Postal Service now has
a $1,000 limit, but under the Mil-
itary Postal Service the indemnity
may be much higher.
One of the benefits of the Military
Postal Service is the authority to use
business reply mail, those post cards
and envelopes provided by a busi-
ness firm to solicit responses from
prospective clients or patrons. Such
mail may be applications for
magazine subscriptions, subscrip-
tion renewals, insurance forms, bill
payments, etc.

"First I saw people running down
the hill from Paraiso and then I saw
the accident," said Dorothy(Dotty)
Nelson. Dotty was on her way to the
Gorgas Pediatrics Clinic with her
two daughters. She pulled over and
"There's a bad accident," she told
her children, "stay in the car, I'm
going to help." And she ran-to

where I was working and I tried to
help him by applying pressure to the
cuts on his head. When the doctor
arrived and told me the boy was
dead, I kept wondering if I couldn't
have done more to save his life.
After that accident I cried," she

"I was on my way to work on my
motorcycle," said Lillian Jeannette
Kot, "when I saw the truck turned
over. I stopped and asked the driver
if he was all right and then went to
help the man in the station
When Jeannette saw that people
were trying to pull the dash board
off the trapped driver, but were not
helping him, she climbed in and
began to apply first aid..
"At first I only used my hands to
put pressure on where he was
bleeding," she said, "but then
I asked a bystander for his shirt."
Jeannette continued applying
pressure to the wounds on the man's
throat and talked to him to keep
him calm.
"I kept telling him that it wasn't
too bad and that he would be all
right," she said. "I tried to talk
about other things too, to keep his
mind off the accident and to keep
him conscious. I wanted to comfort
him," she said.
While Jeannette helped the driver
from inside the car, Dotty applied
pressure to a deep cut in his wrist.
The two of them stayed until the
Emergency Medical Team (EMT)
arrived, and'continued to help as
the doctor applied an air splint to
the driver's other arm. The doctor
told Dotty to apply a wood splint to
the arm she was holding. "I'd never
put a splint on before, so I just did
what the doctor told me to," she
After an hour and a hall he tire
-department was able to extricate
the driver from the station wagon
and take him to the hospital. Dotty
followed in her car, and Jeannette
stayed with the man in the am-
Both women have since visited
him in the hospital but only Dotty
has had a chance to speak to him
and ask how he was doing.
Dotty has never had any first aid
courses and thinks she must have
picked up the idea of applying
pressure to a wound from some tele-
vision show. 'I never once thought
about whether I should get in-
volved or not," said Dotty. "Not too
long ago a boy was involved in a
train accident near the airfield

"I didn't cry this time, maybe
because the man is going to be all
right, but I haven't been able to
sleep very well and the whole
incident keeps running through my
mind. I talked to Jeannette and
didn't feel so badly when she told
me that she was having a delayed
reaction too."
"This is the first time I've ever
helped anyone in this kind of ac-
cident," said Jeannette who saved
several lives when she was a life-
guard at Amador Beach and who
has taken several courses in first aid
as part of her training to be a
physical education teacher.
"I didn't think, Ijust reacted," she
said. "When I saw the blood, I.told
myself, 'I can't feel this. There is a
life involved,' and I just did what I
had to."
Both women said that they had
had a hard time talking about the
accident and that they still feel
shaky when they think about it.
"I usually react quickly in an
emergency situation," said Dotty

who was limping from a bad fall she
had on her first parachute jump last
month. She said that before the
accident she thought the parachute
jump was the scariest thing she had
ever done.
Dotty, a small plane pilot, paid
for flying lessons by washing air-
planes. Private owners paid her in
cash and when she washed club
planes they gave her time in the air
in exchange. She has won second
place in two air show events and
says "there's nothing like flying."
Dotty, a clerk-typist at the
Dredging Division, doesn't feel like
a heroine. And Jeannette said she
doesn't feel like a heroine either,
that what she did was a part of her
job as a human being. "Somebody's
life was involved, and I felt good
afterward although at the time I was
afraid I might do something wrong."
Jeannette works as a recreation
assistant at the Gamboa swimming
pool and if she continues her studies
in physical education would like to
work with children.
"I also like anthropology and
archeology," Jeannette said. "There
are so many fields I would like to go
into, I like so many things, but
whatever I decide to do I want it to
come from my heart." In her free
time, Jeannette hand glides and said
that the first time she tried it, it was
a beautiful feeling. She said "It's as
close as you can get to being bird."
She is also interested in taking
flying lessons and plans to start
parachuting next week.
Both women agreed that more
people ought to have some under-
standing of first aid and said that
they wished the EMT courses were
open to the public. Jeannette said
she couldn't believe that so many
people stood around the accident
doing nothing to help. And Dotty
remembers thinking that there were
all those people and only one person
was actually doing something. It
turned out to be Jeannette.
The doctor on the EMTteam said
that he felt they both acted
heroically, and that most people
would not have gotten involved.
He added, "They. both did a
wonderful job."

Some C.Z. Residents

Need Panama Drivers

License By October 1

All Canal Zone residents, except
U.S.-citizen employees and their
dependents, must obtain Panama-
nian vehicle driver's licenses prior to
October 1, 1979. This applies to
non-U.S. employees of the Panama
Canal Company/Canal Zone Gov-
ernment -and their dependents as
well as all employees of private
organizations and their dependents.
Employees of private organizations
who are dependents of U.S.-citizen
employees will be licensed under a
special program to be announced
later. The Panama Canal Treaty
provides a 90-day grace period
commencing on October 1, only to
U.S.-citizen employees of the Com-
mission and their dependents.
Panamanian drivers' licenses may
be obtained by applying at the
National Guard License Section at
either Panama City or Colon.
Special procedures are now in effect
to eliminate the requirement to pass
a written or practical demonstra-
tion test; however, all other require-
ments still apply. Applicants must
pay the licensing fee of $10 at a
branch of the Banco Nacional and
obtain a certificate in Spanish from
a doctor or medical laboratory
indicating blood type and glucose
count before going to the Na-
tional Guard Licensing Office. It is
understood that the blood testing is
done free of charge at the Santo
Tomas Hospital medical laboratory
or at any Panama Government
medical center. Reasonable fees are
charged by private laboratories in'
Panama. If the- test is performed
either at Gorgas Hospital or Coco
Solo Hospital, the charge will be
$11. This charge cannot be made
against medical insurance coverage.
At the licensing offices in Panama
and Colon, applicants will be
required to show but not surrender
their Canal Zone drivers' license
since this license will be needed by
Canal Zone residents until October
1, 1979.
Procedures to obtain Panama-
nian drivers' licenses by U.S.-citizen
employees and their dependents will
be announced at a later date.

Pay Retention
(Continued from page 1)
period to terminate this entitlement.
In such a case, grade retention will
terminate on the last day of the pay
period in which the employee's
written election is received in the
Personnel Bureau. When grade
retention is waived, the employee's
pay rate will be "slotted" within the
step range of the lower grade if his
or her rate is less than the scheduled
rate of the maximum step of this
grade. Otherwise, the rate of the
maximum step will be selected.
After "slotting in" he or she will
begin to receive the regular step
increases and full comparability
adjustment applicable to the grade
to which demoted. The reason this
option is available is that in some
cases it may be more advantageous
for the employee to waive the grade
retention entitlement.
Any questions on grade or pay
retention may be referred to per-
sonnel specialists at 52-3311. Ques-
tions of general interest will also be
answered in later issues of the

Empleados Desplazados Retendran Grado y Salario

Y ahora, buenas noticias para
casi 800 empleados que han reci-
bido notificaciones que pasarin a
un grado inferior en octubre a causa
de la reducci6n de fuerza. Esos
empleados se beneficiaran como
resultado de las disposiciones de la
Ley de Reforma del Servicio Civil
que gobierna la retenci6n de grado y
Anteriormente, un empleado te-
nia que haber servido dos afios en el
grado o los grades superiores al que
fue descendido para tener derecho a
retener su salario. Las reglas
de la retenci6n de salario disponen
que el empleado retendri su nivel
salarial al sufrir un descenso si el
salario de la posici6n a la cual fue
descendido es inferior al nivel sala-
rial de la posici6n que ocupaba. Si el
empleado sufre un descenso de mis
de tres grades se empleaba una f6r-

mula para determinar la cantidad
que podria retener. La retenci6ndel
salario duraba dos afios solamente.
Al cabo de los dos afios, el
empleado comenzaba a devengar la
tarifa salarial maxima del grado al
cual habia sido descendido.
Bajo la nueva Ley de Reforma del
Servicio Civil, el empleado es prote-
gido de dos maneras-por medio de
la retenci6n de grado y por la reten-
ci6n salarial.
Retenci6n de Grado. Para
tener derecho a retener su grado, un
empleado que haya sido descendido
de categoria por una Reducci6n de
Personal debe haber trabajado un
minimo de 52 semanas consecutivas
en grado o grades m6s altos al que
fue descendido. La retenci6n de
grado significa que por dos afios a
partir de la fecha en que recibi6 la
notificaci6n de descenso, el em-

pleado recibird los aumentos y ajus-
tes de salario que hubiera recibido si
no hubiera sufrido cambio de
grado. Despu6s de dos afios el
empleado adquiere el derecho a
retener su salario.
Retenci6n de Salario. Hay
dos formas en que un empleado
puede adquirir el derecho a retener
su salario. La primera, como diji-
mos anteriormente, es despu6s de
dos afios en un grado retenido. La
segunda es cuando un empleado no
tiene derecho a la retenci6n de
grado porque no ha desempefiado
la posici6n por 52 semanasconsecu-
tivas antes de recibir el descenso de
La retenci6n de salario implica
que por un period indefinido el
empleado retiene o la tarifa basica
de pago en la cual est6 colocado al
final del period de retenci6n de

grado o 150 por ciento de la tarifa
maxima escalonada del grado al
cual ha sido descendido, cualquiera
que sea menor. Mientras retiene
su salario, un empleado recibe un 50
por ciento de los aumentos de sala-
rio comparado del escal6n maximo
del grado al cual fue descendido.
Cuando la tarifa de pago devengada
por el empleado es igual o menor
que la tarifa pagable por el escal6n
mis alto del grado inferior, la reten-
ci6n de salario terminal y comenzara
a recibir todos los aumentos de
El empleado que, al ser descen-
dido de categoria tiene menos del
requerido minimo de 52 semanas
consecutivas en un grado mis alto,
los beneficios de retenci6n de sala-
rio son de acuerdo con los descritos
arriba, except que la tarifa inicial
de la retenci6n de salario es la

misma que se recibe inmediata-
mente antes del descenso de cate-
Hay algunos casos en que las
reglas de retenci6n de salario no son
aplicables. Esos casos son, por
ejemplo, donde el empleado es des-
cendido s61o un grado y si su tarifa
de pago cae entire dos escalones se le
pagard el salario mas alto del grado
inferior. En estos casos el emplead o,
despu6s de ser incluido en un esca-
16n de grado comenzard a recibir los
aumentos de escal6n de grado y los
ajustes anuales de sueldo aplicables
al grado inferior en vez de recibir
s6lo un 50 por ciento de los aumen-
tos subsiguientes.

La pequefia Yahaira Hereira demuestra sorpresa y felicidad al aceptar
un distintivo por servicio en nombre de su padrino Bernard D. Headley
de manos del Gobernador H. R. Parfitt, pero la nifia de 5 ailos de edad
no puede comprender lo que significa 50 ailos de servicio con el Canal.
Headley, subgerente de almacen de ventas en el Almacen de Ventas al
por menor de Balboa, tiene medio siglo con la Divisi6n de Abasto, donde
inici6 su carrera en 1929 como ayudante de oficina en el comisariato de
Pedro Miguel. Entonces s6lo devengaba $22.50 al mes, pero dice en
broma, "Jamis estuve pelado entonces como lo estoy ahora". Richard

Apartados Postales Gratuitos Ofrecer el Servicio de Correos Militares

El l~ de octubre, el Servicio de
Correos de la Zona del Canal seir
descontinuado de acuerdo con lo
estipulado en el Tratalo. Para esa
fecha, el Servicio'de Correos Milita-
res sera ampliado localmente a fin
de brindar los mismos servicios que
previamente eran proporcionados
por el Servicio de Correos de la
Zona del Canal. Ocho sistemas de
correos de la Fuerza A6rea (APO)
brindaran servicio a los empleados
estadounidenses de la Comisi6n del
Canal de Panama, asi como tam-
bien a los miembros de las Fuerzas
Armadas de los Estados Unidos, a
los empleados civiles estadouniden-
ses del Departamento de Defensa, y
a otras personas y grupos tal como
fue acordado por las subcomisiones
conjuntas de los Estados Unidos y
de PanamA sobre asuntos de
correos. ;' '

Se asignaran apartados postales
gratuitos a los usuarios, y la ubica-
ci6n dependera del lugarde residen-
cia de la persona, del Area de empleo
y de la disponibilidad de los aparta-
dos postales. Una lista de los siste-
mas de APO, sus ubicaciones y las
Areas a las cuales brindarin este ser-
vicio acompafia este articulo.
Los usuarios que actualmente
arriendan apartados postales del
Servicio de Correos de la Zona del
Canal y que tienen privilegios para
usar los sistemas de APO serAn
notificados por correo sobre c6mo y
cuando podrAn obtener un apar-
tado postal APO.
Aquellas personas que deseen
mantener un apartado postal fuera
de los sistemas de APO podran
ponerse en contact con las autori-
dades de correos de Panama para
solicitar el arriendo de un apartado

postal. Todo el servicio de correo
para tales apartados seria propor-
cionado por el sistema de correos de
Los funcionarios del Servicio de
Correos de las Fuerzas Armadas
laboran arduamente a fin de asegu-
rar que el cambio el 10 de octubre
sea logrado sin interrumpir el flujo
de la correspondencia y con el
menor inconvenient possible a los
Aunque el Servicio de Correos
Militares proporcionarA bAsica-
mente los mismos servicios que
ahora brinda el Servicio de Correos
de la Zona del Canal, el costo sera
menor en la mayoria de los casos.
Por ejemplo, el Servicio de
Correos de la Zona del Canl vende
giros postales a tarifas progresivas
hasta $1.10. El valor del giro postal
esti limitado a $300.

Bajo el Servicio de Correos Mili-
tares el Giro Postal Militar del Ser-
vicio de Correos de los Estados
Unidos sera vendido a una tarifa fija
de 20 centavos sin considerar la
denominaci6n y podran obtenerse
por cualquier valor hasta $400.
El costo para el envio de paquetes
sera calculado diferentemente, tam-
bi6n. Actualmente, el Servicio de
Correos de la Zona del Canal, por
ley, debe cobrar la tarifa que corres-
ponde a la Zona 8 para paquetes de
prioridad (correo a6reo) y de cuarta
clase que van a los Estados Unidos,
sin considerar el destino.
El Servicio de Correos Militares,
que tiene n6meros de APO en
Miami, es considerado como un
ramo del Correo de Miami. Por lo
tanto, cuando un client envie un
paquete desde un sistema de APO
despu6s del 10 de octubre, lo estara

enviando desde Miami para los
efectos de calcular el franqueo.
Si el paquete va dirigido a cual-
quier direcci6n servida porel Admi-
nistrador de Correos de Miami, el
client paga la tarifa de la Zona
local. Por ejemplo, basado en las
tarifas actuales de franqueo del Ser-
vicio de Correos de la Zona del
Canal, un paquete de 31 libras
enviado a Miami como Correo de
Prioridad costara $22.15, pero des-
pu6s del IQ de octubre, el mismo
paquete s6lo costaria $9.03.
Otro cambio estriba en la canti-
dad de la indemnizaci6n que puede
ser adquirida para el correo certifi-
cado. El Servicio de Correos de la
Zona del Canal actualmente tiene
un limited de $1,000, pero bajo el Ser-
vicio de Correos Militares la indem-
nizaci6n podria ser mayor.

"Primero vi que la gente bajaba
corriendo desde Paraiso y despues
vi el accidente. cuenta Dorothy
(Dotty) Nelson. Dotty se dirigia a la
Clinica Pediatrica del Hospital
Gorgas con sus dos hijas. Se sali6 de
la carretera y par6.
"Ha ocurrido un accident serio",
le dijo a sus hijas. "Quedense en el
carro, voy a ir ayudar". Y corri6-
hacia donde el cami6n se habia

que el muchacho estaba muerto,
comenc6 a preguntarme si no pude
haber hecho algo mas para salvarle
la vida. Despu6s de ese accident

"No llor6 esta vez, quizas porque
el hombre se va a recuperar, pero no
he podido dormir bien y el drama

"Iba para el trabajo en mi moto",
dice Lillian Jeannette Kot, "cuando
vi el cami6n volcado. Pare y le pre-
gunte al chofer si necesitaba ayuda y
luego fui a ayudar al hombre de la
Cuando Jeannette vio que la
gente trataba de apartar el tablero
para library al conductor, pero que
nadie ayudaba al hombre, subi6 al
vehiculo para ofrecerle primeros
"Al principio s6lo use mis manos
para aplicar presi6n en el area
donde se desangraba", dice, "pero
despu6s le pedi la camisa a alguien
Sque se encontraba en la muche-
Jeannette continuaba aplicando
presi6n a las heridas en la garganta
del hombre mientras le hablaba
para mantenerlo calmado.
"Le repetia que no era nada serio
y que iba a estar bien. Trat6 de
hablarle sobre otras cosas tambi6n,
para distraerlo y mantenerlo cons-
ciente. Queria reconfortarlo", cuenta.
Mientras Jeannette ayudaba al
conductor desde adentro del carro,
Dotty aplicaba presi6n a una cor-
tada profunda en su mufieca. Las
dos se quedaron hasta que el
Equipo M6dico de Emergencias
(EMT) lleg6 y siguieron ayudando
mientras el doctor aplicaba una
tablilla de aire al otro brazo del con-
ductor. El doctor le indic6 a Dotty
que aplicara una tablilla de madera
al brazo .4u'-e ella sostenia. "Nunca
habia colocado una tablilla, asi es
que hice exactamente lo que el doc-
tor me indicaba".
Despues de hora y media los
bombers pudieron extraer al con-
ductor de lCac. iioncllcl y y llevarlo al
hospital. Dotty los sigui6 en su
carro, y Jejniii. - j.,nipa ni..' al
hombre en la nihbuiarici
Ambas lo han visitado en el hos-
pital, pero s6lo Dotty ha tenido
oportunidad de hablarle y pregun-
tarle c6dio le va.
Dotty nunca tuvo adiestramiento
en primeros auxilios y presume que
debi6 haber aprendido la tecnica de
aplicaci6n de presi6n a una herida
de alg6n television.
"Nunca me detuve a pensar si invo-
lucrarme o no", dice Dotty. "Hace
poco un muchacho sufri6 un acci-
dente cerca de la pista de aterrizaje
donde yo trabajaba y lo trate de
ayudar aplicando presi6n en las cor-
tadas que tenia en la cabeza.
Cuando el medico lleg6 y me dijo

caidas era lo mas temerario que
hubiera hecho.
Dotty, piloto deavioneta. pagaba
sus lecciones lavando otras avione-
tas. Los duefios de las avionetas le
pagaban en efectivo y cuando
lavaba las avionetas del club le
pagaban en tiempo de vuelo. Ha
ganado el segundo lugar en dos
exhibiciones areas y dice que "no
hay nada que supere el volar".

S Dotty, que es oficinista mecand-
grafa en la Divisi6n de Dragado. no
se siente como una heroina. Y Jean-
nette asevera lo mismo y agrega que
lo que hizo fue lo que debe hacer
cualquier ser human. "Se trataba
de una vida y, aunque en el
moment tuve miedo de cometer ur
error, despues me senti muy bien".
Jeannette trabaja como asistente
� .. de recreaci6n en la piscina de Gatn-
boa y, si continia sus studios de
educaci6n fisica, le gustaria trabajar
, con ninos.

S Dice Jeannette, "tambi6n me
gusta la antropologia y la arqueolo-
, gia. Hay tantas profesiones que me
Ilaman la atenci6n y me gustan tan-
tas cosas, pero lo:que decide hacer
quiero que me nazca del corazon".

De Conductor de Panama
Todos los residents de la Zona
del Canal, except los empleados
estadounidenses y sus dependientes,

empleados no estadounidenses de la

dependientes asi como tambi6n a
todos los empleados de organiza-
clones privadas y sus dependientes.
Los empleados de organizaciones
privadas que son dependientes de
empleados estadounidenses recibi-
ran su licencia durante un program
especial que se anunciara mas ade-
lante. El Tratado del Canal de Pa-
nama estipula que se otorgara un
period de graciade90 dias,a partir
del 1 de octubre, s6lo a los em-
pleados estadounidenses de la Co-
misi6n y sus dependientes.
Las licencias de conductor de
Panama pueden obtenerse some-
tiendo una solicitud a la Secci6n de
Licencias de la Guardia Nacional
ya sea en la ciudad de PanamA o en
Col6n. Procedinmientos especiales
estan actualmente en vigencia a fin
de eliminar el requerimiento de
aprobar un examen escrito o una
prueba practice; no obstante, todos
los otros requerimientos deben
cumplirse. Los solicitantes deben
pagar la cuota de $10 para sacar la
licencia en una sucursal del Banco
Nacional y obtener un certificado,
en espaflol, de un medico o un labo-
ratorio que indique el tipo de sangre
y el recuento de la glucosa artes de

caso, la retenci6n del grado sera ter-
minada el Altimo dia del period de
pago en el cual es recibida la solici-
tud en la Direcci6n de Personal.
Cuando se renuncia a la retenci6n
de grado la tarifa de pago del
empleado serA incluida dentro de
los dos escalones del grado inferior
si su sueldo es menos que la tarifa
programada del escal6n maximo de
este grado. De lo contrario, la tarifa
del escal6n maximo sera seleccio-
nada. Despu6s de asignar un esca-
16n el empleado comenzara a recibir
los aumentos de escal6n de grado, y
los ajustes anuales aplicables al
grado al cual ha sido descendido. La
raz6n por la cual se ofrece esta
opci6n es que en algunos casos seria
much mas provechoso para el
empleado renunciar al derecho de
retenci6n de grado.
Cualesquier preguntas sobre re-
tenci6n de grado o salario pueden
ser referidas a los especialistas de
personal al 52-3311. Respuestas a
preguntas de interns general serin

Uno de los beneficios del Servicio
de Correos Militares es la autoriza-
ci6n de usar correspbndencia-res-
puesta a vuelta de correo, esas
tarjetas postales y sobres proporcio-
nados por una empresa commercial
con la finalidad de solicitarrespues-
tas de sus futures clients o usu'a-
rios. Tal correspondencia puede.
consistir en solicitudes para subs-
cripciones a revistas, renovaci6n de
subscripciones, formularios de se-
guros, pagos de cuentas, etc.
En lugar del sell de franqueo en
la correspondencia-respuesta a
vuelta de correo habra un endoso
que podria decir "Libre de Fran-
queo si es Echado al Correo en los
Estados Unidos" o Permiso de
Bulto NO XXX". El usuario no ten-
dra que ponerle sello porque la
empresa commercial paga por este
servicio al Servicio de Correos de
los Estados Unidos.
Probablemente los privilegios
mas apreciados del Servicio de
Correos Militares son "SAM" y
"PAL". Los envios sujetos a espacio
disponible (SAM) significa que los
usuarios s6lo pagan el franqueo de

El envio de paquetes por trans-
porte aereo (PAL) es una variaci6n
de SAM en el cual el usuario paga
un costo variable adicional por un
servicio de envios sujetos a espa-
cio disponible desde el puerto de
entrada de los Estados Unidos hasta
el destino.
Otra caracteristica del Servicio de
Correos Militares es que la corres-
pondencia procesada para los siste-
mas de APO de Miami es clasifi-
cada segtn el APO o ntimero"ZIP"

miento de la maquina de clasifica-
ci6n de cartas en Miami para todos
los APO latinoamericanos es 35
minutes. Esto debera acelerar la
entrega de correspondencia proce-
dente de los Estados Unidos a los
nuevos usuarios del APO. Actual-
mente, la correspondencia desti-
nada al Servicio de Correos de la
Zona del Canal es clasificada
manualmente en Miami.
