McAuliffe President's choice

The President of the United States has announced his
intention to nominate Lt. Gen. Dennis P. McAuliffe to
be the Administrator of the Panama Canal Com-
mission. This position was created by the Panama
Canal treaties and would be established by the legisla-
tion now pending in Congress to implement the treaties.
General McAuliffe stated: "I am pleased and
honored to learn of the President's intention to nomi-
nate me as the first Administrator of the Panama Canal
Commission that will be created under the terms of the
new Panama Canal Treaty. As the Commander-in-
Chief of the United States Southern Command for the
past four years, I have been closely associated with the
development and ratification of the Panama Canal
Treaties. That experience and knowledge, I believe, will
be helpful to me when 1 assume these new
"The position of Administrator will be established by
the Treaty implementing legislation that is still under
consideration by the United States Congress."
Lieutenant General McAuliffe assumed duties as
Commander-in-Chief, United .States Southern Com-
mand, Quarry Heights, Canal Zone, on August 1, 1975,
and concurrently was promoted to the grade of lieu-
tenant general. The assignment is the latest in a broad
range of command, staff and advisory positions as a
general officer. On promotion to brigadier general in
1969, he was an assistant division commander of the Ist
Infantry Division in Vietnam, followed by a year of
senior advisory duty with the Vietnamese III Corps
(Military Region 3). Then he served in a key policy
position on the international staff of.the Supreme
Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), con-
currently functioning as a senior representative of the

Supreme Allied Commander to the NATO political
Prior to coming to Panama, General McAuliffe was
Director, European Region in the Office of the Assist-
ant Secretary of Defense (International Security
Affairs), Washington, D.C., with responsibility for
defense policy pertaining to the NATO Alliance and the
European nations.
Born in New York, on April 8, 1922 he was graduated
from the US Military Academy and commissioned as a
Second Lieutenant of Field Artillery on June 6, 1944.
His wife, Kathleen, is active in both the Canal Zone and

Richard O. Burgoon, chief of the
Financial Planning Division, Office
of the Financial Vice President, has
been promoted to deputy financial
vice president following the retire-
ment of John E. Fisher.

Member of an old family of
Canal employees whose service goes
back a long way, Burgoon's grand-
father came to the Isthmus from
Dubois, Pa. during early construc-
tion days. Later, his father was a
commissary manager, and his brother
Joseph has been manager of the
Ancon Laundry for many years.
Burgoon was born on the Isthmus
and attended Canal Zone schools.
After graduating from Balboa High
School in 1946, he went on to
Loyola University, where he majored
in accounting.

He joined the Panama Canal as a
junior auditor with the Internal
Audit Staff in December 1953,
when the office was located at
Diablo .Heights. Subsequently, he
has occupied positions of increasing
responsibility, as business analyst,
staff accountant, rates analyst and

Battle against weeds continues

E&C experiments with hyacinth-eating moths

By Fannie P. Hernandez

Moths that have a special appetite
for water hyacinth and nothing else
are part of the Engineering and
Construction Bureau's most recent
efforts to find a way to help control
the growth of the beautiful but
bothersome and fast-growing weed
that threatens to clog Canal waters.
The Dredging Division is currently
preparing to experiment with repro-
ducing the Sameodes Albiguttalis
Two entomologists from the
Waterway Experiment Station in
Vicksburg, Miss., arrived on the
Isthmus a few days ago, bringing
with them moth eggs attached
to '/2-square-inch pieces of water
hyacinth leaves. To conduct the
experiment, the eggs will be placed
on water hyacinths growing in "field

labs," actually four back-yard wad-
ing pools made of aluminum with
vinyl lining. The reproducing pools
will be covered with insect netting
and the eggs will be allowed to
incubate in the controlled environ-
During the incubation period of
four or five days, the larvae will
hatch from the eggs, scratch .the
surface of the leaves, penetrate the
petiole, or leaf stems, and bore tun-
nels into the growing part of the
hyacinth, weakening and ultimately
destroying the plant. The entire
process from egg to larva to pupa
and the emergence of the adult
moth takes from 30 to 37 days. The
moths are yellow/tan with brown
markings (females are darker) and
have a wing span of about an inch.
A female Sameodes lays about
500 eggs in a period of 48 hours.

Successful results of this biologi-
cal experiment means the moths
would be most valuable in con-
trolling the presence of the water
hyacinth that wildfire.

In addition to the on-going
chemical, mechanical and manual
efforts by the Canal organization
to control aquatic weeds in the
waterway, a number of biological
methods have been studied and
evaluated through the years. In an
effort made by the Division of
Sanitation several years ago to des-
troy mosquito breeding places,
manatees, known as voracious
eaters of aquatic vegetation, were
released in the Chagres River and
Canal waters to munch away at the
abundance. After two years, there
was no really noticeable decrease
in the amounts of aquatic vegeta-

tion as the manatees were selective
in the type of weed they would feed
on; and although they showed a
preference for water hyacinths, they
ate only the tops, leaving the big
root system to grow a new plant.
In another effort to control both
floating and submerged aquatic
vegetation such as the nuisance hy-
drilla, about a quarter of a million
white amur fish, capable of eating
two or three times their own body
weight each day, were released
recently in Gatun Lake. Infrared
photographs were taken in the lake
last March and are currently being
analyzed to determine if a change in
the growth rate of hydrilla can be
Aquatic weeds in the Canal be-
came a problem soon after the
waterway opened and their effect
on navigation has steadily in-

creased. Aquatic vegetation in the
U.S. has invaded areas used for
transportation, irrigation, drinking
water, recreation and other public
purposes. The tenacious weeds clog
drainages and irrigation canals,
obstruct navigation channels and
limit boating and fishing in re-
creational waters. Locally, an un-
controlled weed problem could
seriously affect Canal operations,
as weeds invading the channel
could clog the water intakes and
damage the engines and other
machinery of transiting ships in
the Canal.
A team of professional biologists
in the Dredging Division's Aquatic
Weed and Debris Control Unit,
headed by biologist C6sar Von
Chong, is responsible for the opera-
tion and research of the Canal's
aquatic weed. control program.

August is the "back-to-school"
month but not just for the kids.
Right now is an excellent time for
adult members of the Isthmian
community to get to work on that
degree or to take a course just for
the fun of it.
Here's what's happening at Canal
Zone College:
Student enrollment for the Fall
semester is continuing daily with
classes for the regular 18-week
semester scheduled to begin on
Monday, August 13. The College
operates on the early semester plan
so that the Fall semester can ter-
minate prior to the Christmas
holidays. In addition, the College
administration has scheduled 16-
week, 12-week, and 9-week classes.
starting at later dates in the
All departments of the College
have scheduled class sections for
morning, afternoon, and evening
sessions. Interested students can
secure the class schedule and
registration materials from Room
209 of the main college building
on the La Boca campus. A coun-
selor is on duty during day and
evening hours to advise students
and approve class schedules.

A new course, "Introduction to
Folklore," will be offered this
semester. Mary and Herbert Knapp,
authors of "One Potato, Two
Potato, The Folklore of American
Children," will teach the course,
which will meet from 5:05 to 6:30
p.m. on Monday, and Wednesday,
starting August 27 for a 16-week
session. The course has been
scheduled to accommodate those
who hold full time jobs.
"The Canal Zone is an ideal place
to study and collect folklore,"
according to the Knapps. Instruc-
tion in field collecting will be given,
and students will be required to
make one major field collection of
a type of folklore which interests

"Folklore, the orally transmitted
material of a culture, is much more
important than it might appear at
first glance," say the Knapps. "As
students in the class share their
collections, we feel that they will
gain an understanding of why
customs and traditional verbal lore
are important to people and in
particular how they have functioned
in the Canal Zone community."
The College will accept a limited
number of bilingual students who
are particularly strong in both

English and Spanish languages as
candidates for the new A. A. degree
in translating and interpreting this
semester. One of the prerequisites
for enrolling in the program is
securing a satisfactory score on
both the English and Spanish por-
tions of the qualifying test which
has been prepared by the Foreign
Language Department.
In addition to the usual general
education requirements of English
composition, speech, physical ed-
ucation, social studies, mathe-
matics, and natural science, the
program includes a number of 300-
level Spanish courses. These are in

Spanish Literature, Spanish Ameri-
can Literature, Advanced Spanish
Grammer and Syntax, and Ad-
vanced Spanish and English Trans-
lating and Interpreting.

The program has been planned to
respond to the need for bilingual
employees by various government
agencies and' private businesses
operating on the Isthmus. Upon
completing the program, students
should be well qualified for posi-
tions as translators and inter-

preters as well as other positions
requiring bilingual skills.
Additional information or class
schedules can be requested by mail
by calling the College on 52-3305
or 52-7509.

On dean's list
Two Canal Zone residents,
Tammy A. Kessler and Graciela E.
Cedefio, were named to the Dean's
list summa cum laude at the In-
carnate Word College in San
Antonio, Texas. The summa cum
laude designation is for those stu-
dents who maintain a 3.9 to 4.0
average on a 4.0 scale.

Last month the SPII.IWAY carried
a story on how to travel with a dog
or a cat. Here is the most recent
information on what to do about
transporting birds. Since these
regulations are in the process of
being changed, be sure to check
with the airlines when you make
your own reservation before doing
anything about "Polly."
To travel with a bird you need a
special reservation with the airline
as regulations prohibit more than
one bird on any one flight. Braniff
will not take any birds on any flight.
Also, you may only import birds
through the following cities: Boston,
New York, Baltimore, Seattle.
Honolulu, Detroit, Miami, Tampa,
San Juan, New Orleans, Los
Angeles, San Francisco and Port-
land. No other ports of entry will
allow you to bring in a bird.
Once you have spoken with the
airline, then get a certificate of
health (valid for ten days) for $5
at Corozal or Mindi. The certificate
must be notarized; and if the bird
is in the parrot family, your proof
of 90 days ownership must also be

you have another kind of bird and
want to know the export tax, call
RENARE at 52-5870..
Now, take your notarized certifi-
cate, your ownership papers and

your export permit to the quaran-

they will give you an exit visa
for $2.
To get to the quarantine station,
follow Balboa Avenue in Panama
out past the ruins. Shortly after
you leave the beach front (the road
curves inland to the left) you will
see on your left a low green building
with a sign saying, "Cuarentena
Agropecuaria." The office is through
the front door. Ask for Lindy.
For unaccompanied birds, you
must complete Form 17-S and
Form 1-75 from the animal hospi-

What's going on.

Severance Pay ho gets it
and how much
Following is a continuation of questions and answers
on severance pay that appeared in last week's SPILLWAY.
Q: Is entitlement to unemployment compensation a
bar to severance pay?
A: No.
Q: Am I entitled to severance pay if I am receiving
employees' compensation for a job-related injury?
A: No.
Q: Will my severance pay, and the period covered
by the severance pay, 'be creditable for retirement or
leave accrual purposes?

A: No, because when a person receives severance pay
he is no longer a Federal employee.
Q: What happens if I start drawing severance pay but
later become entitled to a disability annuity?
A: Since the disability annuity will be retroactive to
the date of your'separation from the service, you willL
have to return all severance pay that you received.
Q: If I die during the period before my severance pay
fund is exhausted, what happens to the balance?

A: Payments will continue to be made at the same rate
and interval to your survivors or beneficiaries until your
fund is exhausted. This money will not be paid to your
estate in a lump sum.
Q: Assume I am demoted through RIF and offered
a lower-paying position (not an "equivalent" position)
which entitles me to severance pay if I decline the offer.
If I accept that offer and later change my mind and
decline the offer, am I still eligible for severance pay?
A: Yes, so long as you changed your decision before
October I, 1979.
Q: Is there any limit on the amount of severance pay
I can receive?

A: Yes. The total severance pay you are eligible to
receive is limited to one year's pay at the rate of pay
you received before separation.- This is a lifetime
limitation. Therefore, if you are in a position to receive
severance pay a second time. your severance pay cannot
continue after the sum of the two periods reaches
52 weeks.
Q: Where can I get additional information about
severance pay?

A: Personnel Bureau specialists at 52-7458 are
available to answer employees' questions on severance

El President de los Estados Unidos ha anunciadosu
intenci6n de nombrar al Teniente General Dennis P.
McAuliffe como Administrador de la Comisi6n del
Canal de Panama. Esta posici6n fue creada por los
tratados del Canal de Panama y seria establecida por la
legislaci6n que estA ahora pendiente en el Congreso
para implementar los tratados.
El General McAuliffe declar6: "Estoy complacido y
honrado al conocer la intenci6n del Presidente de
nombrarme como el primer Administrador de la Comi-
si6n del Canal de Panama que sera creada bajo los
terminos del nuevo Tratado del Canal de Panama.
Como Comandante en Jefe del Comando Sur de
Estados Unidos durante los 6ltimos cuatro afios, he
estado asociado muy de cerca con el desarrollo y rati-
ficaci6n de los Tratados del Canal de Panama. Esa
experiencia y conocimiento, creo yo, sera de much
ayuda para mi cuando asuma estas nuevas respon-
"La posici6n de Administrador sera establecida por
la legislaci6n de implementaci6n del Tratado que
todavia estA bajo consideraci6n por el Congreso de los
Estados Unidos."

una series de posiciones de comando, estado mayor y
asesoria como official de carrera. Cuando fue ascendido
a general de brigada en 1969, tenia la posici6n de
asistente comandante de la Divisi6n Primera de Infan-
teria en Vietnam, la cual fue seguida por un afio como
asesor principal del Tercer Cuerpo Vietnam6s (Regi6n

Military 3). Luego desempefi6 una posicion muy impor-
tante con el personal international del Cuartel General
Supremo de las Potencias Aliadas de Europa
(SHAPE), sirviendo al mismo tiempo como represen-

la estructura political de la OTAN.
Nacido en Nueva York el 8 deabril 1922, se gradu6 de
la Academia Militar de EE.UU. y recibi6 su comi-

Sigue lucha contra la maleza

Usan polillas para controlar jacintos acuaticos

Por Fannie P. Hernandez

Polillas que s61o apetecen jacin-
tos acuaticos forman parte del mAs
reciente program que la Direcci6n
de Ingenieria y Construcci6n esta
utilizando en su lucha porcontrolar
el crecimiento de la bella pero
molesta y rapidamente propagada
maleza que amenaza con obstruir
las aguas del Canal. La Divisi6n de
Dragas actualmente prepare un
experiment para reproducir la
Sameodes Albiguilis localmente.

Se espera la llegada a fines de mes
de dos entorp6logos de la Estaci6n
de Experimentos de Vias Acuaticas
de Vicksburg, Mississippi, quienes
traen consigo huevos de polillas
adheridos a pedazos de hojas de
jacinto de 11/2 pulgadas cuadradas.
Para llevar a cabo el experiment,
los huevos seran colocadosenjacin-
tos acuaticos que crecen en los

laboratoriess", que en realidad son
cuatro pequefias piscinas hechas de
aluminio forrados de vinil. Las pis-
cinas de reproducci6n estaran cu-
biertas con mosquiteros y los
huevos se podran incubar en un
ambiente controlado.

Durante pl period de incubaci6n
de cuatro o cinco dias, la larva
nacera del huevo, rasgara la superfi-
cie de las hojas, penetrara el peciolo
o tallo de la hoja debilitando y final-
mente destruyendo la plant. El
process entero, de huevo a larva a
ninfa y el surgimiento de la polilla
adulta, toma de 30 a 37 dias. Las
polillas son de color crema amari-
llento con marcas color chocolate
(las hembras son mas obscuras) y
las alas expandidas miden como
una pulgada. Una Sameodes pone
como 500 huevos en un period de
48 horas.
Los resultados positives de este

experiment biol6gico significant
que estas polillas seran de gran
valor en el control deljacinto acui-
tico que se propaga como fuego.

Ademas de los continues esfuer-
zos quimicos, mecanicos y manua-
les por parte de la organizaci6n del
Canal para controlar la hierba
acuatica un sinnfmero de m6todos
biol6gicos han sido estudiados y
evaluados a trav6s de los afios. En
esfuerzo realizado por la Divisi6n
de Sanidad por destruir los criade-
ros de mosquitos, se soltaron unos
manatis, famosos por su apetito
voraz por la vegetaci6n acuatica, en
el Rio Chagres y aguas del Canal
para que se dieran gusto con la
abundante vegetaci6n. Despues de
dos afios, no hubo ningfin cambio
significativo en la cantidad de vege-
taci6n acuatica, ya que a los mana-
tis s6lo les gusta cierta vegetaci6n y
aunque parecian preferir el jacinto

acuatico, s61o se comian los extre-
mos superiores, dejando el sistema
de races y permitiendo asi el resur-
gimiento de la plant.
En un esfuerzo por controlar
tanto la veget.aci6n acuatica flo-
tante y la sumergida como la perti-
naz "hydrilla", se soltaron en el
Lago Gatin en meses pasados cerca
de un cuarto de mill6n de carpas
Amur Blanco, capaces de comer 2 6
3 veces su peso a diario. Se tomaron
fotografias infrarrojas en el lago en
marzo y actualmente se estan anali-
zando para determinar si se puede
detectar un cambio en el ritmo de
crecimiento de la "hydrilla".
La vegetaci6n acuatica se convir-
ti6 en un problema poco despues de
ser inaugurado el Canal y las conse-
cuencias que ella acarrea han
aumentado en ritmo ascendente. La
vegetaci6n acuatica en los Estados
Unidos ha invadido las areas utili-
zadas para el transport, la irriga-

ci6n, el agua potable, la recreaci6n y
otros prop6sitos. La vegetaci6n
tenaz congestion canales de dre-
naje e irrigaci6n, obstruye canales
de navegaci6n y limita el deported
acuatico y la pesca en aguas destina-
das para esos .fines. En nuestro
ambiente, la falta de controlar la
vegetaci6n acuAtica podria afectar
seriamente la operaci6n del Canal, y
la vegetaci6n que lo invade podria
congestionar las entradas de agua y
dafar las maquinas y demas maqui-
naria de las embarcaciones que
transitan el Canal.
Un equipo de bi6logos profesio-
nales de la Unidad de Control de
Vegetaci6n Acuatica y Desperdi-
cios de la Divisi6n de Dragas, enca-
bezada por el bi6logo Cesar Von
Chong, tiene la responsabilidad de
administrar y Ilevar a cabo las inves-
tigaciones dentro del program de
control de vegetaci6n acuatica del

a Quidn Io recibe
Pago por cesantia uin lrecb
y cuainto
Lo siguiente es una continuaci6n de las preguntas y
respuestas sobre el pago por cesantia que aparecieron
en el SPILLWAY la semana pasada:
P: LEl derecho a recibir cojnpensaci6n por desempleo
me impide recibir el pago por cesantia?
R: No.
P: iTengo derecho a recibir pago por cesantia si estoy
recibiendo compensaci6n por un accident sufrido en
el trabajo?
R: No.
P: ,Podra acreditarse mi, pago por cesantia y el
period de duraci6n de este pago a vacaciones o
tiempo de jubilaci6n?
R: No, porque cuando una persona recibe pago por
cesantia ya no es empleado federal.
P: iQue sucede si comienzo a recibir pagos por
cesantia y despues me hago acreedor a pagos por
R: Ya que la anualidad por incapacidad se hace
retroactive hasta la fecha de separaci6n del servicio,
usted tendr q.ue devolver la cantidad complete que
haya recibido.
P: Si muero antes de agotar el fondo de pagos por
cesantia, iqui sucedera con el balance?
R: Los pagos se continuaran hacienda a sus sobre-
vivientes o beneficiaries en la misma cantidad y en los
mismos intervalos hasta que se agote el fondo. Este
balance no se pagara a sus herederos en una suma
P: Supongamos que por una reducci6n de personal
sufro un descenso y se me ofrece una posici6n con
menor salario (una posici6n no equivalentte) que me
da derecho a recibir pago por cesantia por rechazar la
oferta de trabajo. Si acepto esa oferta y luego cambio de
parecer y rechazo la oferta, itendre derecho a recibir
pago por cesantia?
R: Si, con tal de que cambie de parecer antes del
10 de octubre.
P: ,Tiene limited la cantidad que puedo recibir por
R: Si. La mAxima cantidad que tiene derecho a
recibir es equivalent a un afio del salario que recibia
antes de ser separado. Esta limitaci6n es por vida. De
manera que, si usted vuelve a tener derecho a recibir
pago por cesantia ste sera-suspendido cuando la suma
de los dos periods alcance las 52 semanas.
P: ,Quien me puede suministrar mis informaci6n
sobre el pago por cesantia?
R: Los especialistas de la Direcci6n de Personal
