The 588- square-mile strip hacked out of the jungle has been a bone of bilter contention for two decades but the basic disagreement goes back nearly 70 years. Brig.-Gen. Omar who took power in a coup four years ago hat the canal theme to rally Panaman- ians behind the government. The 43-year-old strongman insists that desire for sovereign" Ty over the Canal Zone is "the only religion uniting all Panamanians." The U.S. and Panama signed a treaty in 1903 giving Washington the power and authority "which the United States would possess and exercise as If It were the sovereign of the terri- ever a 10-mile-wide strip across the Isthmus of Panama. The U.S. Interpreted the wording as the right to full sovereignty and jurisdiction over the zone. Panama has never accepted this view It cost the U.S. million before It w.as officially open. In 1914. Panama received an initial payment of million and a year, but changes in the treaty in 1936 and 19iJ boosted the payments to million an- nually. Attll-Arr.aricon riots erupted In Panama In 1956 end 1964 sparked by a grow- ing spirit of' nationalism and dissatisfaction over the treaty. The 1944 riots resulted in the deaths of 22 Panamanians and four Americans and prompted Panama to sever di- plomatic relations. The two countries are speaking officially again but there little direct official communications. Britain's drug reform lobby watches Canada By KEVIN DOYLE LONDON (CP) Keep- Ing a watchful eye on Canadian developments, Britain's canna- bis reform lobby has intensi- fied its 'campaign for easier penalties against drug offend- ers. Within the next several months, small parcels may start dropping through the let- terboxes of lawroakers and oilier prominent people in the United Kingdom. Inside will be a smal! portion of marijuana. With it will be a note point- ing out that the police have been informed and that by possessing the drug, the recipient is comit- ting an offence. He should dis- pose of it immediately, the note will say, and the best way to do that is to smoke it. The drug mailing is the brain- child of the Cannabis Action Reform Organization, a loose grouping of civil liberties com- mittees, and is designed to launch dramatically a revitaliz- ed attack on Britain's drug laws. CITE LEDAIN REPORT Organization officials say they have been encouraged by the findings and recommenda- tions of the LeDain commision on the non-medical uses of drugs published in Canada last year. The report's contention that those who use marijuana or hashish shoulU not be consid- ered crimminals should be offi- cially adopted and greatly ex- tended in Britain, the organiza- tion says. Officials also believe that the Canadian government's decision last July to remove cannabis of- fences from the Narcotics Con- trol Act and place them under the Food and Drugs Act may indicate Canada is moving grad- ually towards legalization of cannabis, making it easier for other countries to do the same. Don Aitken a leader of the British organization, said in an interview it is absurd to contin- ue enforcing strict penalties against cannabis users when the Canadian commission and official studies in the United Safes have not turned up any "clear evidence" that use is harmful. There are no firm figures to indicate the numbers of users in Britain but most estimates indicate about one million peo- ple are involved. PLENTY AVAILABLE There is no shortage of can- nabis on the British ther in the form of marijuana (the crushed leaves) or hashish (the The price over the last two years has remained steady at about an ounce. New British legislation makes possession of the drug punish- able by a sentence of up to five years and trafficking subject to a maximum sentence of 14 years. However, virtually any- one who smokes it can do so with a fair degree of safety un- less he is careless or comes to police attention in some other way. In 1971, there were about 000 prosecutions and, although the rate is increasing anuaily by 70 per cent, It still repre- sents a fairly small fraction of users. Aitken marketing of can- nabis should be taken over by the government to prevent it tailing into ihe of the to- bacco companies if the drug ever Is legalized. New gold rush expected By DENIS BELL DAWSON CITY, Y.T. (CP) This Yukon Territory gold rush ghost town is gleefully watching the international price of gold skyrocket and is quietly getting ready for a predicted small- scale stampede of prospectors into the Klondike country this spring. With gold now selling at a fine ounce on the international market, sluicing the long- deserted creeks feeding the Klondike River is suddenly, magically, shaping up as an ex- tremely profitable enterprise. "We're going to have a mini- stampede this pre- dicted Mayor Mike Comadino, 64, of Dawson City. "If I was years younger, I'd get a pick and a a and hit the creeks myself." The anticipated rebound In the hunt for gold comes on the VSth anniversary of the Klon- dike gold rush of 1893, which saw more than gold seek- ers swarm into the Yukon after the initial strike on nearby Bo- nanza Creek two years earlier. Since the discovery, more than million worth of pla- cer gold has been torn out of the creek beds, about mil- lion of that in the five years that followed the Bonanza Creek strike. At today's prices, that gold is worth upwards of billion. What's got the 750 residents ef Dawson excited U the gold that was overlooked, Ignored In the past because of its low grade, or dredged over and spewed back into the water. PRICE AN INCENTIVE Mining recorder Pat Paton o[ the Dawson mining district said the international gold standard "is up high enough now to create a considerable amount interest and new exploration." "From the comments I've heard this year around town, I'm going to be an extremely busy said Mr. Paton. "Some areas with low-grade gold were left untouched when the price was these can be profitable now." The mining recorder esti- mated there are 800 staked pla- cer gold claims in his district, of which about 10 are being worked on a part-or full-time basis by approximately 75 min- ers. "Damn few creeks won't be touched this he said. The Yukon Consolidated Gold Corp. still holds 293 placer claims in the Dawson area. The company shut down the last of its six gold dredges in 1966, marking the end of operations which netted 570 million worth of gold over a 43-year period. At the lime, gold was bringing about an ounce. Many of its claims now are out on options to one-or two- man sluicing operations and to miners armed with Ihe latest weapon in the hunt for the heavy duty bulldozer.
