An American high school flag
raising incident in the Canal Zone
sparked years-old resentments and
has led to rioting, deaths, Pan-
ama's breaking diplomatic rela-
tions with the United States and
its renunciation of Canal Zone
treaties.
The students violated an order
of Canal Zone Gov. Robert J.
Flemming and raised the Ameri-
can flag in front of their Balboa
high school. The governor had
ordered no flags flown in the zone.
A 1959 agreement, extended by
the late President John F. Ken-
nedy, called for American and
Panamanian flags to be flown
16 places in the zone to indicate
Panama's titular soveignty of the
zone.
The governor had ordered no
flags flown to quiet American
criticism of "appeasement." The
flag raising reflected this protest.
Charge Border
Last Thursday, after the inci-
dent involving Panamian students
who invaded the zone to protest
the illegal flag raising, hundreds
of Panamanians charged the zone
borders.
Army troops opened fire after
they reported snipers hit four of
their men. In the two days of
rioting that followed at least 24
persons, three of them Americans,
were killed, hundreds injured and
millions of dollars of property
destroyed.
President Roberto Chiari of
Panama angrily broke diplomatic
relations with the United States,
unilaterally denounced the trea-
ties which lease the 10-mile wide
zone to the United States in per-
petuity for $1.9 million a year,
and charged the United States
>with "aggression" before an emer-
gency Saturday-night session of
the United Nations Security Coun-
cil.
