Panama Guard
Stops Assembly
Deposed President Robles Orders
Legislative Palace Closed to Delvalle
PANAMA i)-On orders of deposed President Marco
A. Robles, the national guard yesterday prevented the Nation-
al Assembly from entering the legislative palace to hear a
message from the rival chief of state.
The confrontation touched off rioting in downtown Pan-
ama. Guardsmen, the country's only military force, dispersed
the rioters with tear gas and rifle shots into the air.
Max Delvalle, 57-year-old businessman sworn in as pres-
ident by the assembly Sunday, was caught in the turmoil,
but dodged in his car. The guard has continued to recognize
