President Johnson then talked by phone with Panama's Presi- dent Roberto Chiari. Names Emissary A short time later, Johnson designated Robert B. Anderson, former secretary of the Treas- ury, as the special U.S. emis- sary to seek an end to differ- ences which go all the way back to Ihe 1903 treaty which gave the United Slates perpetual con- trol of the Panama Canal Zone. Speaking (o a White House gathering of congressional lead crs, Latin-American ambassa- dors to Ihe Organization of i American Slates and other dig- Initaries, Johnson had this lo say afler announcing Ander- son's appointment: "This is truly a great day for the Amer- ican people, for Panama, for all the Western Hemisphere and for all freedom loving people everywhere." Ex-Treasury Chief Anderson is a Texas Denio- cral-turned-Repuhlican who was secretary of the Treasury under President Dwight D. Eisenhow- er. The outburst of violence in and along the borders of the 10- mile-wide Canal Zone came on Jan. Q as an outgrowth of a schoolboy dispute over flying ol U.S. and Panamanian flags al schools in Ihe zone. Before things quieted down two days later, 27 persons had been killed, including three U.S. soldiers, and more than 200 in- jured, including more than 80 Americans. Heavy damage was inflicted on American property, mostly oulside Ihe zone.
