PANAMA CITY, Panama (AP) -
Panamanian leaders paused yester-
day to recuperate from all-night
celebration of the new Panama Canal
pact before plunging into what one
official called a stepped-up campaign
to rally support for the treaty.
Thousands of Panamanians, many
of them driven to this capital from
the hinterlands in government-hired
buses, danced to Caribbean music,
drank and sang in the streets Friday
night through yesterday morning to
mark the return of strongman Gen.
Omar Torrijos from Washington.
PANAMA'S elite celebrated with a
round of lavish private parties,
including a bash thrown by Torrijos
at his heavily-guarded home.
The general and President Carter
signed the new treaty, turning over
the canal and Canal Zone to Panama
by the year 2000, Wednesday night in
Washington. They also signed a
separate document guaranteeing
neutrality of the waterway after it
becomes part of Panama.
The U.S. Senate in a two-thirds
vote and the Panamanian people in a
referendum must approve the agree-
ments before they can take effect.

AT A RALLY preceding the street
celebration, Torrijos turned the
treaty documents over to President
Demetrios Lakas and told 250,000
cheering Panamanians: "Not to vote
on that day of the referendum would
be to, commit the sin of' treason
against the fatherland."
Carlos Lopez .Guevara, one of
Panama's treaty negotiators, said:
"there is a momentum now in public
opinion here and we must take
advantage of it. We have to explain
more things to the people. We must
follow the wave."

He said the government planned to
step up its campaign- in coming
weeks to rally support for the
trea ties.
HOWEVER, high officials ap-
peared to be taking time off before
beginning the intensified campaign.
An official who attended the Torri=
jos party said the general went to bed
at 2 a.m., and that he planned to
helicopter to his family farm, on the
Pacific coast 100 miles southwest of
here, for a weekend rest.
A servant at the home of Foreign
Minister Nicolas Revilla said Revilla
"was at a party until very late," and

still was asleep at 1:20 p.m.
Panamanian police reported no
violence during the celebration. in
the Canal Zone, American' police said
it had been A 'quiet night.
The American force was placed on
alert Friday and officials said then
they were afraid the Panamanian
crowd, centered one block from the
border of the zone, might become
unruly and try to cross over.
Panama Canal Co. employes and
U.S. military personnel were warmed
to stay out of Panamanian territory
during the festivities, but many
residents of the zone gathered at the
border to watch..

Moluccan'attack plan., seized

ASSEN* The Netherlands (AP)
About 900 police and troops dodged
sniper fire as they raided South
Moluccan homes yesterday; making
arrests and confiscating weapons,
ammunition and a plan for a new
terror attack, authorities said.
"Among the many items found, a
plan was discovered which showed
there was intent to take hostages in
the near future," Jaap Muntendam,
chief prosecutor in this northern
Dutch town, said at a news confer-
ence.
MUNTENDAM SAID the plan was
found in a home in a Moluccan neigh-
borhood of Assen and that an arrest
was made, but he declined to
elaborate,

East Indies archipelago once Dutch

government to aid their movement

IN THE POLICE action, the most
determined effort yet by the govern-
ment to root out armed Moluccan
dissidents, one officer was shot in the
leg and 24 Moluccans were arrested.
Twenty were charged with illegal
possession of firearms or threatening
behavior. Four were held in custody.
Authorities said the raids netted a
case of 24 firebombs, two machine
guns, seven pistols, a revolver, 250
rounds of ammunition and 60 other
weapons including knives.
After police withdrew from Assen
toward dusk, Moluccan youths gath-

Police said the Moluccan districts
were quiet as night fell, but one

Son of

pay-Ments,
NEW DELHI, India (AP) Inves
tigators have found that questionable
commissions amounting to $990,000'
were paid by the Boeing Aircraft Coin-
party to former Prime Minister Indira,
Gandhi's eldest son Rajiv, the Indian
Express newspaper reported yester-
day. .
The respected English-languages
daily said the alleged payment, made in
connection with India's purchase 'of
three Boeing 737 jetliners, was uncoV
ered by Indian investigators sent to
Washington to probe business dealings
of Rajiv's controversial younger broth-
er, Sanjay.
IT ADDED THE'M4NEY was deposi-
ted in a foreign l #Vk account for Rajiv.,
a pilot for Indian Airines.
The newspaper said a representative
of the Boeing Co., headquartered 'in
Seattle, Wash., confirmed the alleged
payment in testimony before a U.S.
Senate committee. It did not name the
committee.
'Rajiv Gandhi, 33, held no official posi,-
tion in his mother's government, but
press reports claimed he had "a hand -in.
top government decisions involving In-
dia's commercial, airlines during Mrs:
Gandhi's 21 months of national emerge
ency rule.
THE SON WAS not available for com=
ment in the period immediately
following publication of the Indian Ex-
press report. In the past, however, the
Gandhi family, has denied having any
foreign bank accounts.
The Express said the investigators
had been sent to Washington by the gov-
ernment of Prime Minister Moradi Deg
-sal to check on dealings during the
Gandhi era. It said some have now
flown to Sweden and West Germany.
The chief target of the probe had been
international deals made by firms con-
trolled by Sanjay Gandhi, the Express
said. So far he has been formally
named in only one case alleging.im-
proper business transactions.
Unlike Sanjay, who ran for a parlia-
ment seat and was defeated,. Rajiv
stayed out of the public eye and until
now had not been implicated in any
wrongdoing.
