C., sunday morning april 25, 1976 134 pages daily 15c. Sunday 35c debate skirting some historical fact canal talks emerge As Surprise election Issue by George Gedda associated press writer Washington a on a quiet peaceful Island off the panamanian coast diplomats have been working on an agreement that has touched off a major political dispute in the United states. During strolls along the beaches of Contador Island and on sailing and fishing expeditions american and panamanian officials have been negotiating the future of the Panama canal and the 500 Square mile zone which surrounds it. Both countries have been meeting under the Assumption that the 1903 treaty giving the United states effective jurisdiction Over the area makes no sense in today a anti colonialist political climate. In the two years of talks the United states has agreed to negotiate a new treaty believing that the level of consent in Panama for continuing the present arrangement is limited. But candidate Ronald Reagan has been getting Strong applause in Texas by assailing the administration position on the canal. A we bought it. We paid for it. We built it. And we Are going to keep he declares. The administration plans to give Panama jurisdiction Over the zone within three years of the signing of a new treaty. Panama also would be granted a gradually increasing role in the operation and defense of the canal. After a specified period perhaps 30 years or less Panama would be Given full authority Over the canals operation. One unresolved question involves the defense of the canal once Panama gains controls of its operation. Secretary of state Henry a. Kissinger said thursday that a prime . Objective in the negotiations is a guarantee of a permanent free and Neutral Access Quot for . Shipping through the canal Reagan has found that Many americans have an emotional attachment to the project which has often been called a the most ambitious engineering undertaking in the history of the canal was a Nightmare of yellow fever and malaria for those who built it and estimates of its Cost to the . Taxpayer Range As High As $7 billion. Reagan says that if elected he is not about to give the canal away to a a any tinhorn dictator in Panama who happens to ask for it the canal Issue caused Ford some embarrassment two weeks ago when the administration had to Back away from a Ford statement that Quot the United states will never give up its defense rights to the Panama canal and will never give up its operational rights As far As Panama is concerned a this could not Square with the administrations officially stated position. Reagan noted that Ford s chief negotiator ambassador Ellsworth Bunker had conceded in congressional testimony that the United states plans to disengage itself from the canal in stages yielding jurisdiction Over the canal zone first and the canal itself later on. But administration officials said that Reagan himself erred in stating in a nationally televised address on March 31 that the canal zone is a a Sovereign . Territory every bit the same As Alaska and All the states that were carved out of the Louisiana Purchase a says Bunker Quot we bought Louisiana we bought Alaska. In Panama we bought not territory but rights a a the state department says Reagan s argument also is contradicted by the fact that unlike children born in the United states children born in the canal zone Are not automatically citizens of the United states a legalism aside the Basic question for the United states in Panama is How american interests can be Best preserved. The administration has never depicted its canal policy As a benevolent gesture toward a deserving third world country. In the official View the failure to negotiate a new treaty would almost certainly put the United states in a position of having to defend the canal by Force against a hostile population in such a conflict the thinking goes the United states could not count on the diplomatic support of a single latin american country. Defense department officials pointing out the canal s vulnerability to sabotage say that two or three terrorists could put the canal out of operation for a Long time with a single Well placed explosive Reagan s View is that the canal would be More Likely to be closed if control was yielded to a country with a Long history of political instability he ire Quentlyn reminds audiences of tin budding Friendship Between Panama Nian head of government Omar Torri see canal on a african majority Rule supported by Kissinger Nairobi Kenya a with a warning that a time is running out Quot for Rhodesia a White rulers.
