A trade pact between the two nations has been renewed for another five years, and now negotiations are to be pressed for the construction of entire chemical plants by British firms for the U.S.S.R. A British top-levcl industrial team will go to SIos- cow shortly. Taipei Resigned: And, speaking of trade, it now appears that Nationalist China is resigning itself to increased trade and cultural exchange between Japan and Communist China. Only last year, after the sale of a Japanese vinylon plant to Red China, it appeared the government of Chiang Kai-shek would sever diplomatic relations with Japan. But they backed down at the peak of the crisis and said they would tolerate trade with the Commimists so long as it was not encouraged by the Japanese government. Windfall: United States war damage payments to the Philippines government is expected to net the Philippines a windfall estimated at $25 million. The money will be administered jointly by the two governments for use in educational exchange programs, including the financing of the studies of technicians, economists and community development grants. Individual war damage claims now are being paid out of a total fund of 573 million. But, in the end, about a third of the total will revert to the- government. Senator says health insurance priced too high WASHINGTON (UPI) — Sen. Pat McNamara, D-Mich., said today that despite vigorous industry efforts, health insurance is "priced out of the reach of the great majority of people over aged 65." McNamara made the comments as his Senate subcomit- tee on the aged launched it» third and final day of hearings. Witnesses included spokesmen for Blue Cross plans^ by far the largest low-cost' insurer of hospitalization plan in the nation, and a physician favoring the admiziistration's medicare program under social security. McNamara said in an interview that industry claims about the number of older citizens covered by health policies had been "admittedly overstated." He said the first two days of his group's hearings confirmed that in some cases, companies "give us figures on the number of policies, not the numbel of people covered." m vhioo Who Has a MAY 1 — J.
