Communism Making Spectacular Gains in Western Hemisphere— Panama and Canal Seen as the Next Major Target of the Kremlin By LEON DENNEN (NEA Foreign Affairs Analyst) UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. The Nixon administration must soon face up to the alarming fact that communism is making spectacular gains in the western hemisphere. First in Cuba and now in Chile. Bolivia, Peru and Panama may be next. Despite some of the State Department's perennial optimists, the election of Marxist- Leninist Salvador Allende as president of Chile was a major political victory for Russia and a serious setback for U.S. policy in Latin America. Allende is a veteran of the Communist International. He tops Cuba's Fidel Castro as Moscow's man in Latin America. His victory marks the demise of the Alliance for Progress which President Kennedy inaugurated "to improve and strengthen democratic institutions" in the western hemisphere. It will encourage other Latin-American leftists to seize power. Specialists on communism expect Peru and Bolivia to follow Chile in forming "coalition" governments where Marxists- Leninists predominate. But it is Panama and the Canal that are likely to be the Kremlin's next major target. This was revealed by Ruben Dario Souza, secretary of Panama's Communist party known as the "People's Party."

Does Lange's Smooth -lex ice cream really make you feel 10 years younger? ask any 9 year old! Souza was in Moscow in September and had several conferences with the Soviet party chief Leonid Brezhnev. He makes no secret of his ultimate goal — expulsion of the United States from the Panama Canal and how he hopes to achieve it. In a statement to the Kremlin's global propaganda journal "New Times," Souza disclosed that Gen. Omar Torrijos, chief of Panama's ruling military junta, has been collaborating with Russia's agents. In December, 1969, four junta colonels tried to depose Torrijos. They accused him of allowing pro-Communists, including Foreign Minister Juan Antonio Tack, to penetrate Panama's government. However, with the help of the Communists and their National Labor Center, Torrijos defeated the colonels who sought refuge in the Panama Canal Zone which has been under U.S. control since 1903. There is no evidence that Torrijos is a hard-line communist. He belongs, as Souza said, to the "nationalist wing Times Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, Nov. 19, 1970 of Panama's army which is influenced by the general shift to the left in Latin America." But Moscow obviously regards him as a "Kerensky" who will smooth the Communists' way to power. It was by subverting the liberal policies of Alexander Kerensky, Russia's first and only democratic premier, that Lenin and his Bolsheviks were able to seize power in 1917. A similar role was played recently by the Christian Democratic President Eduardo Frei, Allende's predecessor in Chile. Frei is not a Communist. But the Kremlin's strategists were convinced that his ultraliberal policy of "revolution in liberty" was doing their work for them. They ordered their followers and agents to support the anti- U.S. Christian Democrats until the Chileans were ready to vote into power the Marxist-Leninist alternative. Panama's Communists "do not close their eyes to the fact that the policy of (he Torrijos government is a variety of bourgeois reformism," Souza told the New Times. But they regard his "transitional.' government Thus, the "principal task of Communists" in Panama is to as build an alliance of all "anti- imperialist" forces in an effort to drive "Yankee imperialsim out of Panama and the Canal.
