At 73, this grandson of a Chinese mandarin seems to have lost none of the energy and mental resourcefulness which brough' him to the top in the fiercely politics of Communist China. Chou is the most travelled of the Chinese hierarchy, although Mao Tse-tung lias teen abroad twice. WOUKED IN FRANCE Chou was among students who went to France and other Euro- pean countries in 1919 to learn the ways of the West. He helped :orm a branch of the Commun- ist party in France in year Mao and 11 friends were establishing the party in Sliang- uai. Chou soon became a leader of he Chinese movement. He had he support of Joseph Stalin and he Russian comrades. Chou made frequent journeys to tlie wartime Nationalist capital in Chungking to negotiate terms of the renewed alliance against the invading Japanese. At war's end, President Harry S. Truman dispatched C. Marshall as his special envoy to continue the mission of mediation.

While the U.S. firm spent million in Canada during that its sales to Canada to-alled only million. The two igures, however, are expected o come more into line in the next few years with sales of Aircraft Canada's over Uie next 10 years for to million each. Mr. Nelson says Canada's favorable trade balance in Lockheed production and sales was a major factor in getting Air Canada to agree to buy the TriStar. Air Canada executives sought government approval for the purchase. "The government looked at the trade balance and said, "Sure, go Mr. Nelson said. The Lockheed production sharing program is related favor Lockheed in C.-mada includes million in purchase commitments from Canadian companies, million in purchases by Lockheed subcontractors, S3 million for Lockheed's operating expenses in Canada during 1970 and 1971, and million as the value of Lockheed MAP aircraft produced in Can-ads During 1971, Lockheed spent million in Canada. The largest single contract, million, went to Canadair Ltd. of Montreal for subcontract timately. He was outspoken in admiration for the Communist negotiator as a man. The U.S. failed but the men parted on friendly terms. Chou's next confrontation with Americans was less friendly. He directed the seemingly endless talks at Panmunjom seeking an armistice in the Korean War. Chou is believed to have been Chinese moves in Uie mid-1950s to move closer to the U.S. An ideological break with the Soviet Union and the U.S. policy of containment brought "lese initiatives to a halt. The fall of Nildta Khruschev in Russia gave an opening to Mao, who had been put partly on the shelf following the disas- trous consequences of his great leap forward experiment in in- dustry. He kicked off the great proletarian cultural revolution in 19C6 and during the ensuring three years Chou stood behind him. It took all of Chou's revolution ended in the spring of he emerged as No. 3 man, after Mao and his designated successor, Lin Piao, the party vice-chairman who later went into eclipse.

It has to be a fact." At the msrnent, the balance is tipped heavily in Canada's favor. But Lockheed expects to sell as many as 30 TriStare in Canada, mainly to Air Canada, ly in Canada's favor and the U.S. has been pressing for meaures to correct the tilt. Mr. Nelson emphasizes that he Lockheed program is not iart of the agreement between he two countries and is purely voluntary on the company's part.

John, who remained in a coma for 11 years and 115 days after being injured in a high school football game in Toronto, died only hours after a visit from his mother. Salvation Army Col. Thomas Ellwood and his wife had maintained an almost daily vigil at their son's bed- side since Oct. 25, 1960, when he collapsed on his team's bench after walking unstead- ily off Hie field two plays after carrying the ball on a plunge. The youth, then a Grade 13 student who played halfback for North Toronto Collegiate Institute, was taken to hospi- tal where he underwent a five-hour operation for a cere- bral hemorrhage but never regained consciousness. But his parents never gave up hope. They spoke cheer- fully to him and read the Bible. The Salvation Army Band he once played for, played his favorite hymns out- side the hospital window. PUBLIC RESPONDED The plight of the boy touched numerous persons who donated more than to hire special nurses and help pay hospital expen- ses. Beatrice Darwent, director of nursing at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, a chronically ill in- stitution, where John was taken after the operation, said: "Johnny was part of Uie hospital. After all tHs time, he will be missed." She recalled Uiat as she went around tfie hospital "everyone would ask: 'How's Johnny With a feeding tube in his nose and tracheal opening for breathing, John was lifted out of bed daily and seated in a chair by nurses at the hospi- tal. Diplomatic row explodes in Washington CAIRO (Reuter) A diplo- matic row blew up recently be- tween Washington and Cairo over the arrest of an American diplomat on spy charges, says a confidant of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.

Heykal did not name the voman nor indicate whether she lad been released, but he did say that she was part of a 'huge spy ring" involving the Central intelligence Agency. In Washington, the state de- jartment said: "It is the kind of allegation on which we do not :are to comment." Heykal said an Egyptian man' iger of a Cairo company also was arrested in the case, uncov- red towards the end of last ear. The unnamed Egyptian was le main accused, Heykal wrote. His CIA contact was the American diplomat, who was caught redhanded, lie said.
