Abstract:

The basic question presented is the future military presence in the Panama Canal Zone. Data was gathered from numerous sources. Background material was obtained from current publications as well as reference books. Due to the current nature of the question and the fact that the ultimate answer must be decided by the Congress of the United States, much reliance was placed on statements made by leading Senators and information contained in correspondence with them as well as personal interviews with individuals representing organizations who are interested in this vital question. A trip to the Panama Canal Zone in January of 1975 was quite helpful in providing information concerning the attitudes of those presently involved in the military mission in the Panama Canal Zone. This trip also funished an opportunity to visit with officials of the Republic of Panama. All indications are that there is little possibility of any great change in the military presence in the Panama Canal Zone in the foreseeable future. Author
