PANAMA LOCKS OUTMODED
New Atlantic-Pacific Canal Ahead
Bv LEWIS GULICK
WASHINGTON (AP) — A historic presidential order has opened the way for a new Atlantic-Pacific canal to replace the Panama Canal within IO to 15 years.
The new canal is to flow at sea level through Panama or a neighboring country, and will probably put the old passageway with its expensive locks out of business.
The troubled 1903 treaty with Panama is to be scrapped soon in favor of a new pact which the United States hopes will heal old wounds while the original canal becomes a relic of bygone days.
President Johnson went before television cameras Friday to read his landmark announcement that the United States will now “press forward in earnest” to achieve the long discussed goal. Ile announced:
I. Secretary of State Dean Rusk will start talks with three or four countries which have potential canal sites — Panama, Colombia, Nicaragua and perhaps Costa Rica — looking toward agreements with any interested in obtaining the new
route. Then on-the-spot engineering surveys will be made in those countries signing agreements to decide which site is best.
2. “An entirely new treaty on the existing Panama Canal” will be proposed to Panama to replace the half-century-old pact that gives the United States Canal Zone rights “in perpetuity.”
The new treaty would retain U.S. rights needed to run and protect the present canal, but it would recognize Panama’s sovereignty.
U.S. control of the IO by 50-mile Canal Zone strip as exercised under the 1903 accord would end when the new canal opens.
Friday’s announcement climaxed lengthy talks between the United States and Panama begun after the bloody anti-American riots there last January. Panama’s president Marco A. Robles hailed it as “a historic day” for his country.
The announcement also marked a turning point in the years of deliberations over

A numbing cold wave which has brought death from exposure to tens of thousands of cattle and sheep in Montana and North Dakota knifed into the East Coast today.
No longer the bone-chilling cold which froze the Midwest, it nevertheless loosed snow
squalls on the eastern shores of the Great Lakes and bored into the north and mid-Atlantic states carrying the promise of zero weather in the North Carolina mountains. It was near zero in northern Maine.
Freezing air extended to the Gulf Coast and nearly to the south tip of Texas. But the 30-below temperatures that
Stupid Or Brave!
WICHITA, Fan. (AP) — “Dad said I was either stupid or very brave.”
Judy Jershin, 18, Wichita State University freshman, was telling how she snatched a jail-breaker’s gun away from him and helped capture him Friday.
“I had never touched a gun before in my life,” Miss Jershin said, “and I don’t know why I did it.”
The fugitive, Richard Lee McArthur, 22, charged with armed robbery, slid down a bedsheet rope and escaped from tile sev
enth-floor Sedgwick County Jail Dec. 5. Police had described him as “extremely dangerous with homicidal tendencies.”
McArthur told police he picked the university campus as a place to hide occasionally, thinking no one would recognize him in student crowds.
Police got a tip, however, and patrolmen Jerry Skelton and Harry Holtz entered the fine arts building Friday looking for him.

Ranchers in Montana and North Dakota continued efforts to save their remaining livestock. One estimate put livestock loss at $250,000.
Eight southeastern Montana counties were declared a major disaster area and $100,000 in federal funds were made available to help save animals, some of which have been seen wandering blindly, their eyes frozen shut. Others, their nostrils cemented with ice, have died of suffocation.
Four Air Force flying boxcars were on standby at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Great Falls, Mont., waiting to airlift hay bales to cattle in inaccessible areas.
Rain and snow lashed the West Coast as a new weather front there began its march across the nation. A snowstorm brewing in the Pacific Northwest dumped up to four inches of snow on Washington, beginning at Tatoosh Island off the state’s northwest tip. Gusts of
