They said they were pleased by the favorable results of work on the prototypes, discounted a recent accident and announced that production will not be af- fected by the financial collapse of Rolls-Royce, which is making Concorde's engines.

Milk and meat are in short supply. Dirt roads in the north- east are littered with the car- casses of camels and cattle. If the "long" rains fail in March the situation could be- come much worse, officials agree. The present crisis arose because the "short" rains in November and December were scant. .Crowds beat gongs and drums HONG KONG- (Reuter) Cheering crowds beating gongs and drums greeted deposed Cambodian Prince Norodom Si- hanouk as he travelled by train through China today toward the Indochinese frontier.

National health service plan idea turned down WASHINGTON (Reuter) President Nixon moved Thurs- day to help Americans meet the soaring costs of medical care with a billion program in which employers would be re- quired to provide basic health insurance for their workers. The proposals which he sent to Congress include an increase of billion in government spending to provide better health care for the poor. Nixon rejected the idea of a national health service similar to that in other industrialized countries. Under a nationalized system, he said, only the government would lose when inefficiency crept in or prices escalated. Nixon's proposals, most of which would not go into effect until July are certain to touch off a vigorous national de- bate on health care and how far the government should go to provide health coverage. COST SPLIT Under Nixon's plan requiring employers to provide basic health insurance coverage, costs would be shared by ployers and employees, much as they are in many private plans already operating. For the first 2% years, the employers would have to pay a minimum of 65 per cent and after that 75 per -xni. The em- ployees would pay the remain- der.
