ating and housing areas, including
the roadways within these areas.
Effective October 1, 1979, any Pan-
amanian arrested within Canal
Commission operating or housing
areas will go before the Panamanian
system of justice, while any U.S.
citizen Commission employee or
Inember of the military or their
dependents arrested in the same
areas will go before the U.S. judicial

These areas will be jointly patrol-
led by car. Gordon says a resident
of Canal Commission housing who
calls for a policeman to come to his
home, for example, could expect
that a car carrying both a Canal
Zond police officer and a Panama
National G~uardsman would be dis-
Tentative agreement has b~een

reached that during .the transition
period persons arrested in Commis-
sion operating and housing areas
will be taken either to the Balboa
or Cristabal police stations for their
citizenship to be determined.
Because the two police forces
will be working together during the
transition, plans are being made by
the subcommittee for a three-week
trainineacp iremn tht owh ldjued-

cial system and constitutional
gThe main highways, including
Gaillard and Thatcher highways on
the Pacific side and Randolph and
J)iversion roads on the Atlantic, fall
outside the Carial Commission's ju-
r isdiction and will be patrolled only
l~y Panama National Guardsmen.
G~ordon said, however, that since
the Canal operating and living areas
are joined by these major highways,
hl hoh e agrneeanun can1 be ra hed
traveling on them to stop and give
assistance in the case of an accident
or emergency. Both U.S. and ~Pan-
amanian citizens arrested on these
highways and in any other areas
outside of the Canal Commission s
Jurisdiction will go before the Pan-
amamian judicial system.IIote

Agreement in Implementa cen gives

Commission and their dependents
certain procedural guarantees if
they are prosecuted by Panamanian
authorities. Among them is the right
toan int mreer if nee id an ptr

sentative of the U.S. Government
who also may be present at the em-
playee's pubic trial. The Police
Subcommittee is looking into the
possibility of establishing a liaison
staff within the Canal Commission
-to handle such matters and assist
employees during the trial process.
The Treaty also suggests the need
of a detention center that would en-
able the Panamanian government
to release an employee to the Canal
Commission until the date of his
trial. Consideration is being given
h~y the subcommittee to having the
Commission retain the Cristabal
police station and fail after the 30-
month transition period to u~se as a
detention facility.
As of October 1, 1979, no ad-
dlitional Panamanian felons will be
sent to Gamboa Penitentiary. The
practice of sending felons of U.S.
citizenship with more than six
months to serve to penitentiaries
nearest their stateside home of rec-
ord will continue through the 30-
month transition. The end result
will be that only Panamanian con-

work of the binational surbcommit-
tees currently preparing for the it-
plemenztation of the Panama Canail
treaties on October 1, 1979.
The Police Subcommittee has
Iseen meeting intensive y since Au-
gust, and according to cochairman
hlkoen ordodno it ders endcoope
lent. Gordon says the Panamanian
representatives are fully aware that
the gradual phaseout of the Canal
Zone police force and court system
and the transfer of function to Pan-
am~a's National Guard and judicial
system is an extremely sensitive is
sue to Canal Zone residents. He
says b~oth sides are cabimitted to
making the transition as efficiently
as possible.

Many Of the decisions arrived at
by the subcommittee have yet to be
reviewed for final approval by the
Binational Working Group, .but
Gordon was willing to discuss the
tentative agreements reached so far,
According to the treaty, the

however, will be a shared respon-
sibility of the two governments
from the .date of implementation
through the 30-month transition pe-

the Canal Zone police force and
court system will cease to exist.
The Police Subcommittee is

When the iveight of the world is
upon you, make a visit to the Bal-
hoa Heights cafeteria and hop
aboard the scale next to the water
fountain. For just one cent you can
learn the awful news about the two
pieces of pie, three doughnuts and
four empanadas you scarfed last
week (in round figures, of course)
and for no extra charge, get your
fortune told.
If you were born in the month of
August, you will be happy to know
that "a pleasant surprise will fol-
low a disappointing venture." At
least that's the word from the 34-
year-old sage bought by the Pan
ama Canal Company in 1944 from
the American Scale Manufacturing
Co. of W~ashington, D.C. The Sup-
ply Division acquired three of the
weight and fate machines that year,
one for the cafeteria at Balboa
Heights, one for the Margarita club
house and the third for the Pacific
Luncheonette. The cost for each
was $204.88, and their estimated
service life was 1.0 years. -
People in the Canal Zone are
weighing less in public than they
did in the forties, when there was
a scale at every stop instead of one
in every bathroom. Long time res-
idents remember seeing them in the
Tivoli Hotel and the La Boca com
missary, as well as all the service
Instrument Repair Shop foreman
Theodore W. A. Krizys used to do
routine adjustments on the scales
once a month back in those days.
At that time, he says, La Boca Road
was the: main artery for cars

and buses that: came across the
Canal on the ferry. On one occa-
sion a chiva from the interior stop-
ped at the La Boca commissary to
let off a man carrying a pig, Krizys
recalls. The man proceeded inside
and put the front half of the pig
on the scale and dropped in a pen-
ny, then put the rear half of the pig
on and dropped in another penny.
When asked what he was doing,
the campesino explained that he
was getting the approximate weight
of his pig before taking it to the
Krizys says the scales used to
have hangers on the side to hold a
hat, coat or purse so that passengers
could get an accurate reading. One
woman who boarded the scale was
so distressed with the reading she
got that she continued to disrobe
until she was down to her- under-
clothes. Amazed at her behavior'
Krizys jokingly mentioned it to the
commissary manager, who replied'
"You'd be surprised at the sideshow
that scale provides."
While the scale in the cafeteria
doesn't offer anything in the way of
burlesque or animal acts, it does
bring in a little revenue for the
Supply Division. The cafeteria man-
ager empties the coin deposit ap-
proximately every six months and
recently collected $19.80.
As far as the accuracy of the
weight, several customers swear
the scale weighs three pounds
heavy. It could be that is the "pleas-
ant surprise" that follows the "dis-
appointing venture."

With his teammates behind him,

hands raised high indicating we'ree

For most of us it takes a serious
problem in our lives or a tragic ac-
cident for us to fully appreciate the
high quality of professional services
that we have access to and often
take for granted.

after a fall from a step ladder re-
sulted in five broken ribs, a col-
lapsed lung and a non-functioning
kidney. He said that over the years
his trips to the hospital to visit
seamen on behalf of the Canal Pi-

lots Hospital Committee had led
him to regard Gorgas as an un-
usually well-run activity.
"My confinement there confirmed
nry good opinion, and I was most
particularly impressed by the Inten-
sive Care Unit," Vantine wrote.
"The nurses and nursing assistants
there showed great competence and
professionalism mixed with just the
right amount of compassion."
Vantine praised nurses Betty
Allen and Mariette Graham in par-
ticular for having pulled him
through crises and Drs. Enrique
Valdenebro and Simon Beltran for
directing his treatment.
In closing Vantine cited the or-
ganization and the backup services,
such as the x-ray department, lah-

oratory and pharmacy, for their part
in his care and said, "Together they
saved my life and have my thanks
and deepest respect."

will be used to help the less for-
tunate during the coming year.
They will support the fight against
TB, cancer and heart disease in hos-
pitals and in research labs, provide
qsgiStance to a needy family, send
a bo0 to summer camp, aid hand-
icapped, bring medicabattention to
people who would otherwise go

~victs serving long terms or life sen-

Penitentiary at the end of the tran-
sition, and the subcommittee must
decide what recommendations to
make regarding them.
Gordon says the Police Sub-
committee is considering a special
arrangement for the convenience of
Canal Commission employees which
would entail Panamanian author-
ities issuing vehicle licenses, regis-
trations and license plates and con-
ducting vehicle inspections at facil-
ities near to Canal operating and
living areas.
Firearms control is another issue
the subcommittee is working on to
ease the changeover from Canal
Zorie to Panamanian law. Author-
ities in Panama require such things
as ballistics tests before a gun per-
mit is issued, while Canal Zone
authorities do not.

Eso, por lo menos, es lo que asegu-
ra la sabia miquina de 34 afios que
le compr6, la Compatiia del Canal
de PanamB en 1944 a la American
Scale Manufacturing Company de
Washington, D.C. La Divisi6n de
Abasto adquiri6 tres de estas m6-
quinas de peso y fortune ese afio;
una para la cafeterias en Balboa
Heights, una para el clubhouse de
Margarita y la tercera para el Pa~
cific Luncheonette. Cada una cost6
$204.88 y su funcionamiento estaba
garantizado por unos 10 afios.

La gente de la Zona del Canal se

ra que en los afios cuarenta, cuando
habia una pesa en cada esquina y
no' en cada cuarto de bafio. Los

La Boca, y tambibb~ en to~dos los an
tiguos clubhouses.
El capataz del Taller de Repara-
ci6n de Instrumentos, Theodore W.
A. Krizys, ajustab-a las pesas men-
sualmente en esos tiempos. En ese
entonces, dice, la Carretera de La
Boca era la arteria principal por la
cual transitaban buses y carros qlue

cruzab~an el Canal a haordo del Fe-
rry. Un dia, una chiva qlue venia del
interior par6 en el comisariato de
La Boca y se baj6 de ella un hom-
bre cargando un chancho, recuerda
Krizys. El hombre entr6, al comi-
sariato y coloc6 Ia mitad delantera

tavo. Seguidamente, le di6 la vuelta
al chancho y deposit otro centavo
para pesar la part trasera. Cuando
le preguntaron lo qlue hacia, el cam-
pesino respondi6 que queria saber
el peso aproximado del chancho an-
tes de Ilevarlo al matadero.

Krizys cuenta que las pesas antes
tenian ganchos a los lads para col-
gar sombreros, sacos o carteras parua
qlue los pasaferos pudieran canocer
su peso exacto. Una mujer, cons-
ternada con lo que la pesa indica-
loa, se comenz6 a guitar la ropa,
prenda por prenda, hasta quedar s6-
lo en ropa interior. Sorprendido por
el comportamiento de la sefiora,
Krizys jocosamerite se 10 cont6 al
gerente del comisariato, quien le
respondi6, "Usted no creeria los es-

Leo Barker del "All Stars" de la

En el caso del prictico del Canal,
Wilbur H. Vantine, un accident
qlue casi le cuesta la vida le brind6
la oportunidad de confirmar la opi-

Hospital Gorgas.
En carta de fecha reciente, Van-
