Castro was jailed after his abortive uprising of 1953 but he had se t in motion a train of events that proved Batista's downfall.
Batista himself seized power in
a coup d'etat in 1932 and many

last fiscal year amounted to
$423,669 for Panama City;
$227,866 for suburban Panama;
and $145,908 for Colon.
The rate variations arise
mainly from differences in
pumping and reservoir storage
These rates compare favorab favorably

out the United States, being les?
than half of rates charged bulk
users in some cities but slightly
higher in other instances.
Cities which nave nigner

published by the American
Water Works Association in
1953, include Atlanta, Boston,
Dallas, Jersey City, Miami. Nor Norfolk,

The establishment of water
rentals requires consideration
of many highly variable factors,
and rates are hardly comparable
until these are given proper
Among these factors are pop
ulation and area served; raw
water supply; kind of purifica purification

ral mineral content of water; and topo topography
graphy topography of the area served.
In a recent study completed
by the Water and Laboratories
Branch, it was found that, Ar Arlington,
lington, Arlington, Va has conditions
comparable in most respect to
the loca lsituatlon. The county
buys its water supply from the
adiancent District of Columbia
which has water purification
procedures very similar to those
of the Zone. ;
Arlington Conntv rates are
$151 for the first' million gal gallons
lons gallons supolied directly from the
Washington, D. C. distribution
system, and $147 per million million-gallon
gallon million-gallon unit additional. These
rates compare with $116 in mil-
iion-ga!,ion units now charged

There is a major difference
in the two systems, however, in
that Arlington County owns its
own distribution system as well
as its pumping nd storage fa
