PARIS North Viet-. nam's chief delegate1 to the Par- is peace talks, 'Xuan Thuy, failed to show up today lor Ihe 81st session of the talks, contin- uing an boycott. But his. .deputy .told newsmen' he would, be present next Thurs- day.' .Thuy returned to Paris Wednesday after a trip home. His deputy, Nguyen Mirih Vy, said: "After a long trip, he is taking a little rest." The American delegation was represented by Ambassador Da- vid K. E. Bruce, who-missed last session, and the South Vietnamese by chief dele- gate Pham Dang Lam. The Viet Cong .sent their delegation's third mari, Nguyen Van Tien. Thuy'on his return to dicalcd he brought no new peace proposals.

He said the U.S. delegate has "repealed', fine words about a really conciliatory at-' mosphere "and narrowing differ-- ences." But Vice President Spi- ri> T. Agnew, he said, has "used every argument to arouse chau- vinist feelings 'in the United Sfalcs, calling for an intensifica- tion of (lie war and for winning- a military victory." "He has frantically opposed the fixing of'a timetable for the total withdrawal of U.S. troops from Soulh Vietnam" and "has bluntly said the Nixon adminis- (ration would not hesitate to bring U.S. troops back inlo Cambodia under the arrogant. pretext of assuring the securily of U.S. troops in South Viet- nam." "Fine words" spoken at the conference lable "do not con- vince Vy added. The Viet Cong delegate re- peated his side's "irreducible" demands: "the immediate and total withdrawal from Soulh Vietnam of American troops without posing any conditions whatsoever (and) the abandon- ment of the administration" in Saigon.

When the chicken house and brooder were knocked down they crushed part of the flock along with three kittens. After the winds and heavy rains passed, she walked out- side lo survey the damage. "I'd pick up a chicken from under a piece of tin or a board, and he'd be squashed she said. "I'd just sit down and squall a bit, then go after an- other. "But I'll build myself back you worry about lhat." While guarding her flock she fired (wo rounds at the ma- rauding bobcats. "This old gun wouldn't kill she said, "but it sure did scare them off."

The weekly casually report said 52 Americans were killed in action last week and another 358 were wounded. A spokesman said it was the lowest casualty total since the week ending March 5, 1966, when 61 Ameri- cans were killed and 177 wound- ed. Enemy and South Vietnamese casualties also were down. The US. Command said allied forces killed North Viet- namese and Viet Cong last week, the lowest in more than three years, while the Saigon government reported 247 of its troops killed, the lowest in a month, and 745 wounded. The American report did not include the casualties In the shooting down Wednesday of the 50-foot long, 14-ton Chinook heli- copter. Two bodies were recov- ered, seven men were injured, and 30 other Americans were listde as missing and presumed dead.

Edward M. Kenne- .dy. The program would cover all citizens, without individual lim- it, enljre range. of except'.for cer- tain care, mental and denial treatment and some medicines and'.eqiiipment; 'Kennedy estimated it would pay 70 per cent of all health ex- penditures in the Cation, rough- ly twice Ihe amount now paid by Uie Medicare and Medicaid pro- grams' for the elderly and Indi- gent, which would be terminat- ed. Joining Kennedy as principal sponsor of the plan were Sens. Ralph Yarborough, D-Texas, John Sherman Cooper, R-Ky., and William B. Saxbe, R-Ohio. Kennedy, in prepared re- marks for the Senate floor, said the program would be financed through a trust fund similar to that for social security. FJorty per cent of the income would be derived from federal general revenues, 35 per cent of it from a 3.5 per cent tax on em- ployers' payrolls, and 25 per cent from a per cent tax on individual income up lo a year. Based on 1969 figures, said Kennedy, the plan would have paid out billion. Kennedy emphasized that his hill would not create a national health service of government- owned facilities and govern- ment-employed doctors. "On the he said, "the program proposes a work- ing partnership between the public arid private sectors." It would replace, he said, "Ihe large amount of wasteful and inefficient expenditures already being made by private citizens, by employers, by voluntary pri- vate agencies, and by federal, state and local governments. "Only in this way can we be- gin to guarantee our citizens better value for their heallh dol- lar." Kennedy said "with only four exceptions, I here are no restric- tions on needed cut off points, no coinsurance, no deductibles, and no wailing per- iods." The exceptions, he said, "are dictated by inadequacies in ex- isting resources or in manage- ment potentials" dealing with nursing homes, psychiatric and dental care and some medicines and appliances. Kennedy said the bill was pat- terned after the recommenda- tions of the Committee for Na- tional Heallh Insurance, found- ed in 1968 by the late Waller Reuther. The serialor declared that "America faces many serious and critical domestic problems, but none is more pervasive or more difficult lhan the deterio- ration of our once proud syslcm of heallh care." He ciled figures showing Ihe United States trailing several other nations in various" health categories, such as infant mor- tality and male life expectancy. The Nixon administration so far has shunned notions of n na- tional health plan for all citi- zens. However, the President has Indicated he will propose legis- lation next connection with his welfare reform scrap mcdlcald for a new pro- gram aimed at doubling Ihe number of poor persons for whom health services would be available. nade as it was coming In for a landing at Fire Base Judy, in the northern part of the country.
