Advocate (Newspaper) - January 18, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 118th 254 TELEPHONE HI i-tttl ILS. Envoys In Panama Evacuated Students Rally Peacefully PANAMA Panama's request, tlie United States with drew most of its embassy staff Friday from Panama City to the safe haven of the Canal Zone. Panama announced it was call- ing home its remaining diplo- mats In Washington. These moves were hailed by ft student demonstration, but an- ticipated new anti-American ri- oting did not develop. Instead the rally turned mil to be a peaceful demonstration of sup- port for President Roberto Chiari's demand that the United States renegotiate the Panama Canal treaty. Deny Castroitcs There Leaders denied there were any Castroitcs or Communists among the demonstrators and called on all students to avoid violence. Panama also announced that diplomatic relations between the two countries would be handled by Costa Rica. These moves gave formal ef- fect to the diplomatic break Panama announced last week after bloody rioting followed a high school flag-raising inci- dent. Pledges To Stand After Friday night's rally in Santa Anna Plaza, about students marched toward the presidential palace, The presi- dent, in his shirlsleeves, joined them near the end. Mounting a balcony, he pledged that his demand for a new treaty "is unalterable. We want a new treaty, no revi- sions." The students cheered and then went quietly home. The U.S. Embassy was left in the hands of the senior consular official, Henry Taylor, who be- came tho American consul gen- eral. Consular Level Panama asked Costa Rica to handle its interests in the United Stales. Taylor and approximately six other persons will man the em- bassy and handle consular-level affairs, but the Costa Rican gov- ernment will take over U.S. rep- resentation in Panama on the diplomatic level. President Roberto Chiari has taid diplomatic relations would not be resumed until the United States promises to renegoti- ate the canal treaty. Anticipated Trouble Evacuation of embassy fami- lies was begun Friday afternoon in anticipation of possible trouble from a student demon stration. At that point evacua lion was voluntary. Later in the evening, after the Panamanian government re- quested withdrawal, evacuation was stepped up. The U.S. State Department said Panama's "get out" re- quest did not apply to consulai officials, Peace Corps workers or aid officials.

Pipeline Broken In Ship Channel Advocate Pail l.avaca Bureau PORT LAVACA-The Bauer Dredging Co. dredge "Dave Blackburn" dropped a spud on a high pressure gas line Friday about a.m. while crossing the new ship channel between Miller's Point and Sand's Point. The accident caused the gas to blow up through the spud wells of the dredge for approximately 35 minutes before the valves could be closed on both sides of the bay. The Tex Star 6% inch pipe- line, carrying an estimated pounds of pressure, was buried 54 feet below the-surface of the water. Witnesses who saw the as blowing through the wells and across the bridge said igni- lion would probably have burned the dredge and possibly injured some of its crew. The gas blowing water through the spud wells wet the frictions and the lifting gear could not lift the spud and move the dredge. Another 45 minutes elapsed after the gas was cut off before the frictions were dry enough to lift the spud and move the dredge to safety. This is the third pipeline that has been broken near this loca- tion this week. A Sun Oil Co. line was broken, apparently by Pa y word of mouth through nor- mal diplomatic channels two days ago, the sources said. There has been no formal reply, nit Secretary of Stale Dean Rusk and his top aides made it clear previously that Ihe United States takes a dim view of the for expansion, pointing out he didn't want lo see the city lose a major industry.
