Little damage caused in oil well blowout By GEORGE KITCHEN UNITED NATIONS (CP) The United States, in agreeing to negotiate a new treaty to govern the operation of the Panama canal, is seeking to remove a long-standing source of friction and, at the same time, improve its influence in Latin America. The importance attached to the treaty was indicated by the fact State Secretary Henry Kissinger took time to fly to Panama City to sign an agreement of principles to guide negotiations for the new pact. The ultimate aim is to transfer sovereignty over the U.S.-controlled Canal Zone to the Panamanians. The occasion also provided Kissinger with a chance to set the stage for a two-day meeting he will have with Latin American foreign ministers in Mexico City later this month. In a brief address, he referred to the canal agreement "as an example of what we mean by the spirit of community in the Western Hemisphere." It has taken the two countries eight years to reach the point of signing a document which amounts only to an agreement to try to reach another and final agreement. In the interim, there has been bloody anti- American rioting in the Canal Zone, bad international feeling and a UN vote calling for a new canal treaty. The canal zone has been a source of friction throughout its long history. The construction of a water- way through the Isthmus of Panama, the narrow neck of land connecting North and South America, was considered as early as the 1500s by the early Spanish explorers. The United States became keenly interested in the project in 1898 when the Spanish-American war demonstrated that it took American warships two months to sail from the Philip- pines around Cape Horn to join the American fleet off Cuba. In 1903, the U.S. signed a treaty with Colombia to build a canal in what was then Co- lombia's Panama province. Meantime, the Panamanians revolted, the Americans sent marines to help the revolutionaries and then signed a treaty with the new government. The treaty provided Panama with million outright and an annual payment of since raised to return for exclusive U S. control of a zone covering five miles on each side of the waterway. The effect is that Panama is split in two by a 10- mile zone over which the United States has sovereignty. Last year, the UN security council travelled to Panama City for a special meeting which, after five days of de- bate, voted 13 to one for a resolution calling on the two countries to conclude a new treaty. The U.S. vetoed the resolution. What Panama wants, in es- sence, is sovereignty over the 500-square-mile zone. The U.S. in the past has expressed willingness to give up sovereignty' but said that operation, maintenance and defence of the canal must remain in American hands for a fixed period of no less than 50 years.

Fourteen persons from the New Norway area, about 145 miles southeast of Edmonton, were examined in hospital for effects of hydrogen sulphide and two received mild medication. None required follow-up care The greatest problems were caused by the mixture of salt water and oil which spewed from the well and rained down on the surrounding area, the report noted. "In total, some 50 acres located to the east of the well were affected by a fine spray of salt water and oil This entire area has been cleared of vegetation and cultivated." The oil and water spray onto forage crops created a feed palatability problem, but possible effects on the 1974 crop are unknown, the report said. QUALITY DRY CLEANING BY THE LOAD LB.
