Download PDF for this date

The hand of the Egyptian Minister in Panama, Mohammed el Tabei, was seen in the recent anti-United States and anti-Semitic acts which are new in Panamanian history, the New York Times indicated today in a cable from Panama from its military expert, Hanson W. Baldwin.

Mr. Baldwin said that the United Arab Republic and Cuba have established “cordial relationships” with anti-United States elements in Panama, and Nasser and Castro are promoting anti-American sentiments in Panama. It has been established that leaders of the anti-United States riots on the Canal Zone borders last fall are acquaintances of Mr. Tabei, Nasser’s envoy. It has also been established that Panamanian students have been offered scholarships to study in Egypt this year.
