Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IITHBRIDGB HERAID Wtdnonlny, Augusl 1, 1972 Toda Till- sloi'.v written J- t'. corrcspondi-nt Tin1 Cannillan Prrss.

Ttiis reporter lias been for- tunate enough in rwent to gain interviews with sev- eral Kastern leadi-rs, giving unusual opportunities lo gain flu impft'.ssii.m of their iH'i'soti- nlities, to study their style ulers: and their grnsp of events. The reservation must Ite made that politicians seldom allow themselves to be cross-examined in the way some Western leaders do. With experience, an inter- viewer can gel away with a certain amount of tactful probing, but aggressive ques- tioning is a pretty SUIT way to bring un interview to a Interviews with most for- eign loaders lend to consist mainly of listening. Mveti so, such meetings offer chances to assess tiie stylo and calibre LI[ rulers seldom seen by the public at close u a r t e r s. There is, for instance, ;i marked difference in attitude depending on whether the pol- itician is from a highly devel- oped country or one still far from affluent. V o r example, Takeo iAi- kvuhi, who narrowly lost out in S the [or new prime minister of Japan, has an as- Mired, urbane, cosmopolitan manner, far different from the defensive, rather licwil- deral nir of some' leaders of shiiggling new nations, Al 07, lie is considered to be still approaching his prime by Japanese political standards.

Although it is sur- rounded by wire de- fences and hy troops, il is almost on the outskirts of the city and .some people feel it is daiijii'mnsly exposed lo raids. nilTK'IS.H OI'KN Mill, at the time of my visit, on the eve of the election in which he was confirmed ;is president, he was conforming Id local custom in holding open house. All rmil sundry were free lo fome into Ilie, spacious eo in pound outside I he house and partake of re- freshments. I wns surprised at the ex- lent nf hhml anil open criti- cism of the regime pcnniltetl in t'lmom poster, siHHX'heis, hnndhilLs. Uut there was fur less disposition tfian expected to regard him us u usurper in ousting i'rince Si- lumouk. Kven the rival presi- dential candidates attacked his aissoeiale.s rather than him personally, allliough whether from discretion or hecrmse they felt fie was held in high regard was difficult to deter- mine.

But. there is little of the common man about Kim. lie does not suffer fonls gladly serious opponents. It is equally misleading to call him a socialist, a fascist, a communist, a dictator, a democrat, a radical, a totali- tarian, a liberal, or any oilier of the labels people feel it necessary to pin to rulers in oider In put (hern Into focus. If a principle mtisl he found for his methods, it is a deter- mination (hat Singapore will survive and prosper come wlml may in a region where every Mate must fight for its life.
