S. ambassador to Panama Mid after 1 . A conference yesterday with President Truman that he was "sure" this country and Panama will "get-together" on plans for defense of the Panama Canal. The ambassador, Brig. Gen. Frank T, Hines, was summoned to a While House conference 12 hours after the Panama Assembly unanimously rejected U.' S. proposals for of the vital inter-ocean -shipping route. "As other official spokesmen voiced dismay tinged with anger over the Panama action, Hines and the President canvassed Ihe .-situation and Its effect on hemispheric defense. "Asked afterward If lie believed * solution of the apparent stalemate between the two countries is possible, Hines said: ' f "Yes, certainly. I am sure \ve pet together." As Hines prepared to leave toda.\ for his post from New York abonrc: the S. S. Panama, congress ion a' reaction to the Panama rebuff indicated that if a solution Is nol reached, a proposed multibillion- dollar progi ftni for improving an< defending the canal will find lln going tough in both houses and sen ate. Work of Communists Srrn Some congressional and arm aources attributed the assembly' vote ' to anti-American fcclin whipped up by Communists. Hines would not discuss the us se nibly's a ct 1 on or Its reasons. I I wld. however, that he Imagined h would receive new instruction.-; fron his superiors here "at (he propc time."

It has Snooky and Sharon, Two Good Pals Laurel May Run For President Of Philippines MANILA (UP) — Dr. Jose P. Laurel probably will be an important, factor in ihe 1949 Philippines presidential election. To some Filipinos he is an arch- rollaborator with the Japanese; to some, a national hero. Even though the so-called "pup- pel" president of the Philippine republic under Japanese occupation is now on tiial on charges of treason, there is no doubt that he Is. a powerful flaure In national poll November elections Sayt fait Rtadtn Get More Out of Book NEW YORK, (UPJ-A fast reader develop* a much keener Deception and understanding of the material than the slow reader, Norman Lewis, supervisor of read'-.

His candidate, Fcliciano Leviste, won the governorship of Batangas province with that undisguised support. / May Challenge Roxa* Behind Manila's political scenes, the wise boys are saving that already two dangerous opposition candidates have appeared as possible challengers of President Manuel A. Roxns in the next presidential election. One Is Laurel; the other'is Camllo Osias, former Philippine resident commissioner in Washington, against whom treason charges still are pending. The November elections this year confirmed what most observers already had said—that' the brand ol "collaborator" no longer carries a political curse here. In thh first national election since the I/lands became independent in 1515, the. charge of collaboration turned out to be an Ineffective weapon.

"We felt It would be necessary to have the defense of the canal well planned." The Panama action came at a time when Congress, had before it a proposal to spend $2.500,000,000 on a new sea-level route, supplementing the present lock canal, and on defense to make the canal impregnable even against atomic attack.
