Up to date figures and prices paid are not and in the case of some infor- mation is not specific as to de- livery year. If deals so far not known come to light embrac- ing 1973 delivery the trade to- tal could reach billion dol- lars. In addition to earlier orders partly delivered last year and partly this China has re- cently ordered from the U.S. tons of tons of tons ot soya beans and bales of cotton. Much of the cargos in- volved in these orders will be delivered this leading to a rough estimate of to milliM worth of agricultural good for 1973. Also U.S. exports such as the Boeing 707 scrap steel and machinery and the stil small-scale U.S. imports from China make up the present es- timated million in trade. The most striking aspect of U.S. trade. with China is the country's need for food grains. This is reflected by the heavy orders of grain not only from the U.S. but also from Canada and Australia. Peking has on order from Canada 2.5 Bullion tons of wheat and from Australia a million tons. Thus China has doubled her food grain imports from two years ago. This appears to be the result of last year's poor harvests and the doubtful pros- pects that prevailed early this year with regard to food grain production resulting in the pre- cautionary orders for imports. Money approved gas plan EDMONTON Expen- ditures of have been approved by the Alberta gov- ernment for implementation of its rural natural gas program. Most of the money more than be paid ito gas co-operatives which re- ceived million in the spring. i The gasification ex- pected to cost milliofi over five is aimed al ing gas to the 20 per cent of the provincial residents using other household fuels. About today's grant is for administration and funding of Gas the gov- t eminent purchasing company i which is to provide the gas.
