    Background: Flags of the United States and Panama flew side by side along Frangipani Street in the Canal Zone November 2nd, along the route of the parade for Panama's Independence Day celebrations November 4th.

    Leftist, ultra-leftist, and nationalist elements have tried agitating trouble between Panamanians and North Americans during the celebrations, but reports from the Canal Zone show an unexpected quiet.

    Last year's Independence Day celebrations saw widespread violence when US police and troops kept marchers from planting the flag of Panama in the US controlled Canal Zone.

    Relations between Panama and US have improved since President Eisenhower directed the Panamanian flag be flown alongside, the US flag as visual evidence of Panama's titular 'sovereignty' over the area.
