Anyone who can say what you say needs to study the matter deeply-- not just to jump to conclusions after a superficial trip financed by taxpayers, I have not space to refute all you say, although everything should be refuted. The thing I will stress here is your statement that, in your opinion, person could have missed them. And surely everyone knows that communist influence always grows, never diminishes. Perhaps you should read the Congressional Record which has some excellent discussions of communist influence in Panama. On January 12, 1977, Hen. Larry McDonald inserted the entire December 17, 1976 issue of The Herald of Freedom, by Frank Capell, an experienced investigator who discussed Red influences in Panama, which is now allied with the Havana- Moscow axis. He says: "The Panamanian repressive G-2 department works under approval of the treaties would close supervision of Cuba's not give rise to increased regime, in the persons of communist influence, in ! Pineiro,, alias Red Beard, and Panama. And that you think the Universe Saez". He says further best way to discourage the rise ! that since 1970, the members d i d communism in the area is to the G-2 department of Panama i approve the treaties, openly traveled to Chbe for Reports of the degree d training in "Political Security". communist influenceinPanama You cannot say such a have been so publicized so relationship is not Communist repeatedly that only a deaf-blind influence.

JOHN D. HOFFMASTER RICHARD R. HOFFMASTER, CO-ADMINISTRATORS, c.t.a. . Miller, Jr. FEBRUARY 2,-2-Ti If you think communist in- fluence does not grow, consider the fact that in 1968 the Panamanian Communist Party 'PCP' was militant only in Panama City, with limited in- fluence on the people, but that it so increased that by September, 1974, it controlled 33 Labor Unions instead of the five og 1963, according to an Argentine journalist. Whatever your opinion is, it is at variance with the facts. Communist influence does grow. And giving them the Canal will merely increase the rate of growth. They are already in key positions in the Panamanian government and the first of their seven guidelines is the taking of the canal. Someone in this area phoned your office and one of your employees said you did not even count the number of letters opposing giving away the canal. This was reported on one of the radio programs and is causing much resentment at you, even among Democrats. I recommend that you listen to your constituents on the subject of the canal. If you make a practice of discarding letters that disagree with you; you are making a grave mistake, politically, just as you are making a mistake by actively backing retification of the treaties. Yours truly, Ia Gardner Mrs, Diane Christian RN00tial Chairman Heart Fund Campaigr Mrs. Diane Christian has been appointed residential chairman of the 1978 Charles Town Heart campaign scheduled for February. As residential chairman, Mrs. Christian will direct Charles Town Volunteers who will distribute information and collect contributions to support the work of the Heart Association. "Cardiovascular medicine has made extraordinary progress in diagnosis, prevention, surgery and rehabilitation", according to Mrs. Christian. Many of these advances have been speeded up by the increase in funding of research and the new programs developed by the Heart Association. Volunteers are vital to the Heart Association's fight for lives. Recruitment of volunteers in Charles Town begins this week and the campaign will kick off the last week of February.
