The Council for "Inter- American Security says that, except for 13 old-style aircraft carriers, every ship of the navy can go through the Canal and, further, that as the American fleet is smaller that the Soviet fleet, the only way to maintain an effective naval force is to have unrestricted use of the canal so that the U.S. can he protected by a mobile navy. Several times Mr. Farrier speaks of the land in the Zone belonging to the Panamanians. He also mentions colonialism, saying that it has disappeared from the world outside the Communist bloc. 'Is he ad- mitting there is colonialism in the Communist bloc?' He bemoans the fact that Panamanians have no voice in the government of the Zone. Naturally the Panamanians have no voice in the government of the Zone. The U.S. purchased the land from the Republic of Panama. It also purchased the land from private property owners, including squatters. It purchased the right to build a canal from the French Canal Company. Then, because Panama had seceded from Columbia, the U.S. paid Columbia for the land. In-the convention between the U.S. and the Republic of Panama the term "gr,ants" is used 20 times. Grants is the word used for total conveyance of rights in legal documents. In 1907 the Supreme Court found the U.S. title to the land in the zone flawless. So -- What is the fuss about? Naturally Panamantans have no voice in governing U.S. territory. Mexico has no voice in governing Texas either. Mr. Farrier speaks of Panamanians who died building the Canal. Many more died before the U.S. bought the zo because it was a pest hole of malaria, yellow fever, bubonic plague and smallpox. The U.S. cleared it up and made it a model of sanitation and the Panamanians benefited because the land was no longer a pest hole. Mr. Farrier says it is morally right and politically responsible to sign the treaties. Arguments for signing the ttreaties include arguments from fear and e you Dodge Aspen coupe with SE Packages. age. 1 COmes to cars to buy or lease, nobody seems to have your nearby Dodge Dealer.

Because the Soviets will most surely take over if we do ratify the treaties. Admiral Thomas Moorer, retired former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said, "Do not be surprised if this treaty is ratified in its present form to see a Soviet and-or Cuban presence quickly established in the country of Panama". Actually, the Soviets are So, Mr. Farrior is completely incorrect -- the Soviets do want the treaties ratified because that would be the same thing as turning the Canal over to them. And to keep from subverting our liberties, we must keep control of our Canal. Lela Gardner Still is Dotty: "A husband like yours must have been hard to find." Ruth: "He still is when I want him."
