Pti n a ma wou Id be wi I ling to a mend ag reements PANAMA CITY, Panama (UPI) — A leading negotiator of the Panama.Canal treaties, responding to U.S. senators' criticism of the pacts!,defense provisions, said today that Panama would be willing to arhend the agreements. Senate minority leader Howard Baker, R-Tenn., now touring Panama along with Sen. Barry Goldwater, R- Ariz., and three other senators, has said the treaty could not be ratified without changes specifying the U.S. right of intervention to defend the canal. "Panama is flexible on modifications to the treaties, as long as these modifications are not basic," Aristides Royo, minister of education and a top Panamanian negotiator of the treaties, told UPI in an interview. "Panama is, waiting to see what changes the United states might propose," Royo's statement came amid growing opposition by key U.S. senators to what they call the vagueness of the Neutrality Treaty, on,e of the two pacts that provide for turhing the waterway over to Panama' by the year 2000. ' Goldwater and Lloyd Bentsen, D-Texas, also say the pacts cannot win Senate ratification unless they are amended to Specify the right of U.S. intervention to protect the canal. Goldwater and Bentsen arrived in Panama Thursday and joined three other senators who are touring Panama to gather information for the impending Senate ratification fight. Baker of Tennessee and fellow GOP Sens. Jake Gam of Utah and John Chafee of Rhode Island have been touring the country since Tuesday and haive met Panamanian leader Gen. Omar 'Torrijos. During a tour of Howard Air Fotce Base, Goldwater said, "I, like most Americans, am unhappy with the fact that our right to intervene is not specified iri the treaty." Goldwater also said he wanted htiman ' rights provisions in the treaties that would allow political exiles to return to Panama. "I think we can work out something for our' mutual benefit but this treaty won't do it," he said. Bentsen, on the second leg of a four-nation Latin American tour, said during his stay he would seek to obtain "clarification" of the U.S. right to intervene after the year 2000 to protect the canal's neutrality, the major sticking poirtt for Senate ratification. "If we had to vote today, it would be difficult to get the treaties passed," Bentsen said. , Baker predicted earlier this week that the treaties would not pass the Senate unless Troops in Korea to be deactivated.

Citil^ank boosted its prime rate a quarter point to 8 percent, the first change in the rate in almost three months.
