Without Thre 11 Is But U.S. officials noted that this country's position through- out the crisis has been that the problems should be thrashed out at the conference table without threats. This does not mean, they said that Ihe United Slates is pre- committing itself to any renego- tiation of the zone treaty. But they said the Uniled Stales might be willing to hold talks without an agenda, which would give Pnaama an opportunity to "ring up any subject, including treaty revision. And the United Stales.would be willing to hear what Panama has to say on the subject without necessarily agreeing to a treaty revision. Stall Off Pressure U.S. officials spent much of the day stalling off Panamanian pressure for ouster of U.S. dip- lomats while they pushed for a peaceful resolution of the crisis "The first need is to keep our shirts Senale Majority Leader Mike Mansfield said af- ter seeing President Johnson. In another development, Sec- retary of the Army Cyrus Vance reported [hat at least 10 sus- pected Castro-trained agents have been arrested in connec- tion with last week's mob vio- lence, including one sniper who shot at U.S. soldiers. Set No Deadline Panama notified Washington last Friday that it is breaking relations. But Panama set no deadline for each side to remove its diplomats and the respeclive embassy staffs remained. Panamanian Foreign Minister Galileo Solis demanded in Pan- ama Tuesday that U.S. diplo- mats get out unelss the United States agrees to revise the 1003 treaty under which the United States holds the Canal Zone. The U.S. government opposes yielding basic canal rights at this time. But it believes a for- mal break in relations with Panama would only make a bad matter worse. The State Department press officer, Richard I. Phillips, took the position that no official com- munication has been received from the Panamanian govern- ment demanding that the Amer- ican diplomats depart. If Panama does make the for- mal demand, Washington will have no choice but to comply Phillips said the United Slates wants lo explore prob- lems with the Panamanian gov ernment lutions." away has filed for re-election, and already was opposed by James 0.
