GUATAMALA CITY (AP) - Panamanian strongman Gen. Omar Torrijos
claimed Saturday the United States is increasing its troops in the
Canal Zone. But he said the situation does not worry him.
Torrijos told a news conference that American troops going to the
Canal Zone are ''the same that left in the stampede from Vietnam.'' He
did not elaborate.
There was no immediate comment from the United States.
A joint communique issued by Torrijos and five other Central
American chiefs of state said note had been taken of the ''disposition
demonstrated several times by the Republic of Panama and the United
States of continuing the negotiations in order to firm up the
arrangement extending from the canal problem.''
Signing the communique in addition to Torrijos were: Presidents
Daniel Oduber of Costa Rica and Anastasi Somoza of Nicaragua; Col.
Juan Alberto Melgar Castro of Honduras, Arturo Armando Molina of
Salvador, and Kjell Eugenio Laugerud of Guatemala.
The joint communique also said Central America and all of Latin
America look at the canal question as their own problem and consider
the need for a solution ''urgent.''
The Central American leaders expressed their ''confidence that
Panama will recover its legitmate aspirations over the canal.''

c.1975 Washington Star
WASHINGTON - Mysterious trips to Managua, Nicaragua, by President
Richard M. Nixon's finance chairman, Maurice Stans, and by White
House ''plumber'' E. Howard Hunt Jr. in 1972 have been uncovered
in connection with the current investigation of former Ambassador
Turner B. Shelton.
Both the FBI and the House Government Operations Committee,
headed by Rep. Jack Brooks, D-Tex., are investigating Shelton's
conduct during his tenure in Managua because President Ford
wants to nominate Shelton to be ambassador to the Bahamas.
The 59-year-old ex-envoy is a Nixon loyalist and friend of
Charles G. (Bebe) Rebozo and of multimillionaire industrialist
The investigation was begun when The Washington Star disclosed
recently that Shelton has been lobbying on Capitol Hill
for the Bahamas post and has won the support of conservative
Sen. Carl Curtis, R-Neb., and several other members of Congress.
Officials close to the investigation disclosed that Stans had
met Shelton on a previous trip to Nicaragua when he was
secretary of commerce. Although the dates of that trip and the
one in 1972 were not revealed, informed sources said Stans returned
to Managua after he resigned from the Cabinet to become finance
chairman of the Committee to Re-elect the President.
The sources said Hunt, who was involved in the Watergate burglary,
also visited Nicaragua before the 1972 election.
U.S. officials stationed in Nicaragua at the time of the second
Stans visit and the Hunt visit said they learned only recently
about the 1972 trips.
It was in the same period that the Watergate investigation
linked the Nixon re-election committee with money-laundering
operations in Mexico to concela the source of illegal campaign
contributions to the committee. The trail of these operations led
to banks in Miami, Fla., and the laundering of money by Bernard
Barker, one of the Cuban-Americans who was working for Hunt
in the Watergate burglary unit.
Nicaragua is largely owned and run by Gen. Anastasio Somoza,
a close friend and supporter of Shelton. Somoza controls arilines,
shipping companies, sugar and cotton plantations and other major
financial interests, including a onetime partnership with
Shelton was a small contributor to Nixon's campaign but
ingratiated himself with the former president in the early
1960s. That was when Nixon defeated for the presidency by
John F. Kennedy, was traveling in Europe and Shelton was
principal officer of the legation at Budapest, Hungary.
Concerning the Shelton file, Brooks said: ''There is a lot
of black greasy smoke here and maybe there's some fire. We will
decide whether to hold hearings on Shelton's performance
after we have studied all the records and audits.''
According to Sen. Charles Percy, R-Ill., the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee decided informally at a closed
meeting last week that it would never approve Shelton for

STANS(STAR) ATTN CHICAGO
c.1975 Washington Star
WASHINGTON - Maurice H. Stans, commerce secretary during the
Nixon Administration, has denied making a private trip
to Nicaragua in the early 1970s.
The Washington Star, in a story published in Sunday's
editions, and carried by the New York Times News Service the
same day, reported that investigators looking into the conduct
of Turner Shelton, former U.S. Ambassador to Nicaragua, had
uncovered a ''mystery'' trip by Stans to Nicaragua in 1972, after
he quit the cabinet to become finance chairman of the reelection
campaign of former President Richard M. Nixon.
Stan's attorney, Robert W. Barker, issued the denial, saying,
''The story in the Star contains false facts and innuendo...Mr.
Stans did not go to Nicaragua in 1972...had the Star checked
with Mr. Stans in advance of running the story, it would have
learned that there was absolutely no substance to it.''
A check with the sources for the stoy disclose that
they had been made in error. Stans made one trip to Nicaragua
in 1970 in his capacity as commerce secretary. He did not make
a trip to Nicaragua in 1972.
Barker also was critical of the Star story in its headline
''because this created a false impression that there was some
connection between Stans and Watergate conspirator E. Howard
Hunt.'' Barker denies any such connection and say Stans and
Hunt do not even know one another. The Star story did not say
Stans and Hunt knew one another, and did not say they had
