(Studio) State Department says United States and Panama prepare joint communication to clarify provisions of treaty and disputed issue of United States intervention rights. Move stems from controversy over leaked State Department cable on provisions, by Senator Robert Dole, who gets backing in leak from Min. Leader Howard Baker. Security leak in this case reminds many of Nixon administration problems with Pentagon Papers. At that time, Dole commented that publication of Pentagon Papers was irresponsible and destructive.
