While the U.S. firm spent million in Canada during that period, its sales lo Canada to- ialled only million. The two "igures, however, are expected ,o come more into line in the next few years with sales of the Ifckheed TriSlar airbus. Erik Nelson, managing dieec- of ths Canadian subsidiary, Lockheed Aircraft Corp. of Can- ada Ltd., said in an interview Lockheed's policy of balancing and expenditures in the countries with which it deals lave won it a good deal of busi- is: We were one of the first companies to realize that bal- ance of trade is not just a eu- phemism. It has to be a fact." At the moment, the balance is ipped heavily in Canada's But Lockheed expects to sell as many as 30 TriStars in Canada, mainly to Air Canada, over Uie next 10 years for to million each. Mr. Nelson says Canada's fa vorablc trade balance in Lock heed production and sales was a major factor in getting Air Canada to agree to buy the Tri Star. Air Canada executives sought government approval for the purchase. "The government looked the trade balance and said "Sure, go Mr. Nelson said. The Lockheed production sharing program is related to Uie U.S.-Caiada defence pro- duction sharing agreement, under which the two countries agreed to keep their defence purchases from each other in rough balance. The over-all balance, as with tho Lockheed program, is heav- ily in Canada's favor and the U.S. has been pressing for meaures to correct Uie tilt. Mr. Nelson emphasizes Uiat the Lockheed program is nol part of the agreement between Ihe two countries and is purely voluntary on tire company's part. In OK long run, the com- pany feels, it is in its interests to have a balance of trade. The ?514 million spent by Unconscious for 11 years ex-football player dies TORONTO (CP) John Ellwood, who passed from a teen-ager to a man of 29 with- out speaking a word or recog- nizing anyone, died in hospital here. 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 the 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 that as she went around die hospital "everyone would ask: 'How's Johnny With a feeding tube In his nose and trachcal opening for breathing, John was lifted out of bed daily and seated in a chair by nurses at the hospi- tal. Diplomatic row explodes iu 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 8 confidant of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. Mohammed Hassanein Heykal wrote in the influential news paper Al Ahram that the United States had demanded immedi- ate release of the woman. Heykal did not name the woman nor indicate whether she had 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- partment said: "It is the kind of allegation on which we do not care to comment." Heykal said an Egyptian man- ager of a Cairo company also was arrested in the case, uncov- ered towards the end of last year. The unnamed Egyptian was the main accused, Heykal wrote. His CIA contact was the American diplomat, who was caught redhanded, lie said.

He was outspoken in admiration for the Communist negotiator as a man. The U.S. mission failed but the men parted on friendly terms. Chou's next confrontation wilh Americans was less friendly. Ho directed the seemingly endless talks at Paranunjom seeking an armistice in the Korean War. Chou is believed to have been behind Chinese moves in the mid-19305 to move closer to the U.S. An ideological break with (he Soviet Union and the U.S. policy of containment brought these initiatives to a halt. The fall of Nikiia Khnischev 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 tory abilities to survive fn this massive struggle againsi. a Communist majority led by President Lieu Shao-chi. Chou, his government buffeted both by right and left, managed to keep the country together while coun- selling moderation of the oppos- ng factions. When the cultural revolution ended in the spring ot he emerged as No. 3 man, after Mao and his designated successor, Lin Piao, the party vice-chairman who later went into eclipse. The army now selected Chou lo carry out a new policy of co- existence. In recent monllis Chou has been in a swirl of ac- tivity, welcoming sports teams, journalists, scientists and diplo- mats from many nations whose relations with Peking suddenly had moved from cold to warm. It was against this back- ground that ha met Kissinger and laid the foundation for Nix- en's visit. idge Chamber of Commerce ANNUAL DINNER f, FEBRUARY 23rd 7 p.m. EL RANCHO CONVENTION CENTRE Guest Speaker HON.
