Pagination or Media Count:
The Panama Canal is studied beginning with its conception and construction. The treaty arrangements which have applied in the past, present negotiations and their possible future implications are discussed. Panamas desire for control is examined and the strategic importance of the canal is evaluated. There is a chance that Panamas wishes may be gratified, however a number of Congressmen view a new treaty with disfavor. In the opinion of the author, the United States should retain ownership and control of both the Canal and the Zone.
