, I think it behooves the Canal Zone government to demon demonstrate
strate demonstrate Its godd faith by putting an immediate end to the opera opera-turn
turn opera-turn of any credit union which Is involved in commercial enter enterprises,
prises, enterprises, even though it may be within the scope of their charters.
The refusal of the directors of the Canal Zone Credit Un Union
ion Union to comment on the matter, leads me to think the whole
issue is quite clear to them.
They are probably well aware that Panama Is within its
! eights to protest, owing to the nature of some of their activi activities,
ties, activities, and are doing the right thing:, keeping their mouths shut
and waiting to see how it all works out.

PANAMA LOSES CUSTOMERS
A sizable bunch of my female friends in the Canal Zone
vowed at a coffee Match Friday that they wouldn't buy an another

quit their petty redling of Gringos orthe Isthmus.
Sadly ehbufh crowd is made up; of heretofoAs Panama Panama-conscious
conscious Panama-conscious gals, many bilingual or getting there, who like to
drive to the market to buy their fresh fruit and vegetables, who
experiment with Panamanian recipes and in general take an
Active interest in the folks across the border.
In the past they always have purchased the old sliver baby
mug at a duty-free store in Panama, bought linen, perfume and
other luxury items at the Central Avenue stores and browbeat
their husbands Into taking them out to dinner at one of the
open air restaurants or hotels In Panama in preference to the
Tivoll or service clubs.
It seems a pity that Canal buying power is tending to veer
away from R.P. selling establishments through the airing of
trifling matters which only stir up resentment and prove noth nothing;
ing; nothing; at all.
A number of these women expressed at least partial under under-atiandlng

angle, but the Tivoll dance thing was just too much- Wouldn't

EXAMS FOR SALES CLERKS IN C.Z.
It's a wonderful idea for the PC Service Branch to set up
examinations for jobs In the commissaries and service centers.
No move made in a long time should do more to give a bright
young man nor woman a head start toward a job that pays
good wages. At the same time, the commys will benefit from
getting more efficient salespeople.
i Some people will perhaps howl that they "can't take exams,'
or "get nervous and forget all I know." Maybe yes but at work
the same kind of pressure is sure to come up. The person who
can keep his head during an examination, can usually keep his
hfcad on the Job.
The announcement says the exams are open to Americans,
Panamanians and others legally resident in the Republic. But
it is a foregone conclusion that most of the applicants, and
irtest of those hired as a result of it, will be Panamanians.
. An exam like this gives the shy young person just out of
school a chance to show his capacity. Personality will count
top, perhaps, In who gets hired.
Only a small percentage of those who pass the test will
pcobably get jobs right away. But the job-seeker armed with
a "high passing grade should have at least a look -in with firms

Panama and her persistent protests give me a pain. It's
aually a good Idea to clean up your own backyard before cri cri-iizing

Some friends of ours arrived here recently, booked to stay
a; week at El Panama Hilton. The room assigned to them was
aanau, not air-conamonea, located in a noisy area and teeming
with mosquitos. Their room rent was $28 a day.
After one hot, scratching, sleepless night they called us up
to see if we could get them into the Tivoll Quest House. We
explained we could not, since, although they are most respect respectable
able respectable people and have a pleasantly fat bank account, they did
not come under the heading of "big shots," potentates or what whatever.

there three days, deciding to shorten their visit and fly back

Because of the Importance of
the juridical base for the Panama
Canal enterprise, in grasping the
essentials of the current situation,
I shall emphasize again what I
said to the House on May 29, 1957.
The legal foundation of our in in-teroceanic

three key treaties:

and the United States, which fa facilitated

Second. The Hay-Bunau Varilla
Treaty of November 18, 1903, be
tween the Republic of Panama
and the United States.
On the part of Panama, this
treaty granted to the United
States in perpetuity the use,
occupation, and control of the
Canal Zone for the construction,
maintenance, operation, sanita sanitation,

nama Panama Canal as if th. United
States were sovereign of the
territory, and most significant significantly,
ly, significantly, to the entire exclusion of
the exercise by the Republic of
Panama, of any such sovereign
rights, power, or authority.
On the part of the United
States, the main point was that it
guaranteed the indenpenaence of
the Republic of Panama, which
had just seceded from Colombia
and whos existence as a separ
ate nation, as will be discussed
later, absolutely depended on the
United States recognition and suc success

Third. The Thomson-Urritra Trea Treaty

Colombia, the sovereign of the

Not until 1936, however, was the
first important step made with
the signing of the Hull-Alfaro Trea Treaty,

in the Senate, was not proclaimed
until July 27, 1939, just prior to

As understood by realistic ob observers

a weakening of the dike in the

of the fundamental principle of
United States sovereignty over
the Canal Zone and the Canat.
To better understand its import important

that in the 1936 treaty Panama Panamanian
