JComboBox not working properly on a GridBagLayout ??

Hi guys, I've got a very simple class to enter data of a new Customer.
The user needs to select a branch from a drop down list (a JComboBox), but, the list of names is covered up by the labels that are in a lower position.
If you'd compile this short code, you'll see what I mean. I just don't understand it, because it works in other classes I've written (with different Layouts)

Thanks for having a look

OK, I have it now, I just didn't have to use Label, but JLabel
also, now my code is much nicer (shame on the me for the previous one...)
thanks anyway!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
