Unfortunate and Dangerous Is Panama's Refusal of Bases to American Army By DEWITT MACKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst Tt is a most unfortunate circurn stance:—even potentially dangerous —which has impelled the republic of Panama to refuse the further lease ot military bases to Uncle Sam for defense of the vast canal which represents one of the most important strategic zones of the entire western hemisphere. Panama ranks as one of the little nations of the world in size (esti mated population some 050,000 and area only 33,667 square miles), but in importance it's a might atom.

Especially serious is the oss of the Rio Hato air base which s the only one from which the luge B-29'bombers can operate. Why did Panama take such drastic action? Well, there are quite a number of angles to it. but one administration offical in Washington attributed the move to a "wave of hysteria," saying that it was popular in some Latin Ameri can countries to oppose the United States as "the colossus of the north." He added that some Communist influence also had been brought to bear but that it wasn't a Communist maneuver as si ,uch. The president will have time for a last-minute decision of this sort ecause the Fourth of July holiday ntervenes between the Republican onvention, which begins June 21 Philadelphia and the Democra- ic meeting in the same setting larting July 12. At this point, more than six nonths in advance of any decision be president may make — which is ikely to be the deciding factor — Democrats are discussing a round dozen possible candidates.

She got him on, the bounce and pretty old from the former Emlen Knight, of Ashland, Wis. Joe tells us, in his by no means reticent personal notes in the preface and surfix, that when, hi August, 1936, Roosevelt asked him where he would like to go as ambassador, he replied "either to Russia or Germany." With a passing observation that this quotation is typical of his grammar, I would put in here the fact that in 1936 the British court was the goal of all the rich tribulors to the party funds con- who could qualify under the prim, and, if you will, sanctimonious, rules of the late George V. and Mary. They Would not even permit a divorced person to be presented at a royal levee. In one paragraph the distinguished statesman writes, "I never go back home from Europe taut what I fell—." On the next page he writes "there can be lillle doubt bul lhat—." The virtue of these souvenirs to posterity is that Mr. Davies today will not know bat What this here is a testimonial to his literacy. I find, on a quick inspection of his text, that in two distinct instances Joe revealed his own belief that he was Roosevelt's own, personal ambassador, representing u man, not a nation. "In expressing lo him my gratification at being able to go to Rus- snys he opening plorers actually made surveys be tween 1515 and 1525 across the isthmus. The inilial altcmpt to dig a canal was undertaken -by a French company in 1878. This failed and the United Stales ac quired Ihe rights of Ihe company during Ihe presidency of Theodore Roosevell in 1904. It is interesting to note that Panama got independence from Colombia be seceding on November 3, 1903, and was recognized as a free republic by the United States on November 13. Critics of the Washington administration accused it of having advance knowledge of the Panama coup and charged it with hurriedness in recognizing Panama's sovereignty. While Panama derives much monetary profit from Washington in connection with operation of the canal, many citizens of the repub lie have been unhappy over their country being split in two by the waterway! Some also have regarded mighty America gloomily as a sort of overlord. • However, many close observers believe that Panama may see fit to reconsider ils rejeclion of the leases, and lhat the matter may be satisfaclorily adjusled.

Defense Secretary Forrestal already has eliminated himself from the competition on this score, but at least two other cabinet .members are represented by the Democratic officials as perfectly willing tp run wilh Mr. Truman. .Included in this calegory is Secretary of Commerce Harriman, whose New York connections largely are with Wall Street and thus considered somewhat under par from a political standpoint.

MONDAY. DECEMBER 29. 1947 Associated Prw-i (NfA)—Means Newspaper Enterprise Aw'n. It was "delegated authority" •which permitted Ihese 45 corporations to be set up with federal money and personnel. Mosl of them, of course, were established because-of the war; olhers, like the Tennessee Valley Authority, represent long-time economic ventures which the people as a whole endorse. What we are concerned wilh now is the prompt liquidation of the war-time corporations and a clear dj^inition of the fields to which the remaining government com panies shall be confined. Originally these various works had to be incorporated, for two reasons: (1) They represented continuous manufacturing or distributing operations which had lo have permanent staffs, and (2) they had to be prolecled against the political horse-trading which is inherent in all businesses administered directly by tho congress. Therefore the government corporations were s'jy up through the executive department as a "thing apart from popular government. This was "delegated authority"—delegated by ths legislative branch lo the executive branch, mainly for the war emergency. But now that 'the emergency has more or loss passed there should be a swift recapture of these delegated powers by the congress—for anything using federal funds and employes and not responsible to the duly elected reprc- rnifilalives of Ihe people is inherently dangerous to our form of government. You know why instantly. Private business is familiar with the example of an employe who is entrusted with a certain job. He delegates it to someone 'else. First thing you know the job isn't done, but no one appears responsible—and all is confusion. That's where business breaks down.

Wallace says he is "sick of having the Communists get the credit for every constructive proposal made by Amercian progressives." That seems a little ungracious of him. For, just two days before he made this statement in a speech at Cornell University, a prominent Communist tossed a large bouquet of credit to Mr. Wallace. And Mr. Wallace, by his own admission, is one of America's progressives. The Communist was William Z. Foster, national chairman of the party. He told a New York audience that "the top labor leadership in this country should learn a few facts of political life from the speeches of Henry Wallace. Mr. Wallace is making a statesmanlike record by so clearly and valiantly pointing out to labor and the American people the fatal objectives to which American policy jr leading." Foster paid Mr. Wallace the further compliment of borrowing some of his ideas and words in discussing that policy. Mr. Foster talked of "Wall Street imperialism" and "reactionary capitalism," just as Mr. Wallace does. He spoke of "reactionary imperialists who are now dictating the American foreign policy, a policy which can lead only to economic, political and moral disaster." That is almost word-for-word Wallace. So the Communists aren't trying tfj take credit when they repeat Mr. Wallace's "progressive" views, though they sometimes may have credit forced upon them. The Foster speech was so laudatory o£ Mr. Wallace as to amount to an endorsement of his third-party canddiacy —if and when. And Mr. Wallace is still for a third parly. He hasn't said he would be its paesidential canididate, doubtless because there is no national third party at present to offer him the nomination. But he told f« press conference in -Syracuse 'mat he would do all he could to The town of Mauban in Quezon, province was~one of those worst hit as an earthquake and on Konitsa.

Approximately 4,4,000 refugees, j earlier were reported to have S sought refuge from the guerillas in i Konitsa, whose garrison was badly I outnumbered by the -besiegers.

The new government offensive coincided with promulgation of a government decree outlawing the Communist party and 1 its sympath izers and providing heavy penalties for violators. The law, which was drafted by the ministry of justice, outlawec not ony the Communist party itself but also the- left-wing EAM coalition and all those sympathizing wilh such organizations. Military courts were empowered to try offenders and to impose sentences ranging from 20 years imprisonment to dealh. The measure — patterned after an anti-Communist law which was enacted in 1929 but not recently enforced—is aimed at all those who seek to overthrow the government by violence, who favor detachment of any part of Greece or who are in sympathy with such aims.
