Communist Work Noted Tower Urges U.S. Keep Firm Control of Canal Senator John Tower today urged the Administration to "exert every effort" to retain firm U.S. control over the Panama Oahal Zone and noted that Communist interference in the Panama rioting Is a documented fact. In a radio program for Texas stations, Senator Tower said that /the Communists' intervention in Panama is graphic evidence of the real and continuing danger to our hemisphere dfrom Castroism and Interna- -tional Communism. Senator Tower told Texans •that the one million Panamanians receive some • $82 million each year from work on and •connected with the canal, and in addition have gotten more than $100 each in U.S; foreign aid grants. Even so, he said, "Panama .now may seek a 25- fold increase in the U.O. canal -rights payment of $2 million a -year. The complete text of Sena- •tor Tower's remarks follows: The deteriorating situation in "Panama has been very much in the news and very much in our "thoughts and very much a mat-ter of concern for us over this -past week. I thought we might today go into a little of the background of the Panama Canal situation. Panama was once a part of -the country of Colombia. It "vvas a province of that coun- -try. In 1903 when the Colombian Senate rejected a final agreement on the digging of •the Panama Canal, inhabitants of the province of Panama revolted against Colombia, and •with the assistance of the Uni- "ted States—at that time Teddy Roosevelt was President—Panama became an independent country. At the same time, we •consumated a treaty with Panama relative to the canal. In 1914, a 40-mile-long canal was opened, and we have 'been using it ever since, .and, • of course, it has been vital to -our commerce and to our defense. Over the years, the United States has recognized inei'eas- ed Panamanian rights in the •Canal Zone, and it has periodically adjusted the U.S. lease payments in a sort of international cost-of-living pay raise "to Panama. The most recent •concession by the United States was that the flags of the United States and Panama were allowed to be flown together in equal display throughout the Zone. The canal, of course, is vitally important to ,the United States and to Panama. Most of Panama's one million 1 citizens make their living directly or indirectly from the Pana<*n"a Canal. Panamanians receive some $82 million annually for work on the activities connected with the Canal, and that's a sizeable iportion of .the nation's income. Panama gets about $2 million a year from the United States as 'lease fights. The total United States investment in the Canal is some $500 million. Panama is in the midst of a tightly contested Presidential election with the vote coming in May. So a number of extremist politicians seizing upon the campaign theme of nationalism have demanded that the United States pay Panama more than $50 million a year for Canal rights. Other politicians have demanded full Panamanian sovereignty over the Canal Zone. The United States has agreed to allow the flags of the two nations to be flown jointly over the Zone, wihich belongs to Panama although it is leased in perpetuity to the United States. In other words, we have a lease with no termination date on it. Panama also sought to have more Panamanians employed in the Zone and in better jobs with increased pay. Panama also wants the United States to build and give it a bridge which they want to run clear across the 10-mile wide zone. Panama has 'been very dependent upon the United States. Besides our (payments for the lease rights in the Canal Zone, U.S. foreign aid to Panama has been considerable. We have spent $100 million from 1946, and that averages out to about $100 (per Panamanian citizen. Because of the presence in the Canal Zone of U.S. mili- tai-y units, Panama has never found it necessary even to maintain any armed forces of its own other than a National Guard police foi'ce or some 3.000 men. The U.S. has determined officially that Castro Communist agents have taken a direct hand in the continued Panama rioting, although the original dispute was between students. The Communists' have seized on this as an incident wihich they can exploit to their own advantage.

Baptist YWA Meets Jan. 15 •. • s The .Young Women's Auxiliary of First Baptist Church met In the <home of Mrs. William Bar jenbruch Wednesday afternoon. Jan. 15. Miss iLinda Karnes gave the mission study lesson. Refreshments were served to Misses Pain Marchant, -Marsha Elbert, Ann Duncan, Nell Tarver, Vicky Bergvall, Linda Garrison, Tanya Horton, Peggy Crawford, and the sponsors, Mrs. Harold Lamb and Mrs. Bar jenbruch. Guests of Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Breeding and -Laron of Abra during the week end were Mr. and Mrs<. Bill Goodlake and Mr. and Mrs. Bill Cox of Borger. The men came for quail hunting. The three couples were in the group that toured Europe several years ago. Also, Goodlake is a past district governor of Lions Olub. Political Calendar favored by the Communists is very much evidence of their participation. Molotov cocktail gasoline bombs and hidden snipers are typical Communist tactics to incite a mob to violence. It is well known that agents of Castro have been moving throughout Latin America for many months. The Communist intervention in Panama is very graphic evidence of the real and continuing danger for our hemisphere from Castro Communism. The sudden trip of Castro to Moscow points up the decision of International Communism to do all it can to exploit the Panama crisis. It is my fervent hope that we will do everything possible to hold on to the Panama Canal. As we have noted it is vital to commerce and to defense. We cannot lose control of that Zone because if we do lose control of it, it can be easily sabotaged or perhaps taken over by the Communists. Therefore, I believe that this Administration should exert every effort to retain firm U.S. control over the Canal Zone. For District Judge 100th Judicial District ALLEN HARP CHAS. L.

She is with all of her loved ones, that have gone on before, I know she was so happy to see them, as she entered Heaven's door. On this earth she lived a long good life, Now Heaven she has gained, where there is no strife. Our Mother never failed to tell us of Jestis and His love, And faithful should .we be to our Father up above. Those, who stood by the bedside until death, Knew that her prayer had been answered as she peacefully went to rest. I know she would not have us so sad and grieved, She, so happy and waiting, for the day when we will be received. —by Thelma McEachem. FOR SALE—Motel for sale.
