Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ------------------------------------------Tueidoy, Auguil 3, 1971 THI I1THBRIDSE HERALD 19 Pal on the back {or MP's Public opinion ranks high OTTAWA (CP) II lurns out that tte public's opinion of members of P a r 1 i a m e n t is pretty high alter all. The prime minister's office last week made puljlic a govern- ment-commissioned su'vcy car- ried out for the special commit- tee on federal information serv- ices. It showed, among a lot of other things, Iliat communica- tion by the public with govern- ment through the local MP is regarded as by far the best means of getting one's request or beef across to the adminis- tration. About 82 per cent of Canadi- ans looted on llieir relations irith their MPs as "warm" and "co-operative." This is about the nicest thing anybody has said about an MP dew styling outside New luxury inside with famous go-anywhere 4-Wheel Drive THr-DRIVE THE 3-CAR CAR TODAlf car UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. Cor. 3rd Ave., 3rd SI. S. Phone 327-2805 since Prime Minister Tnidcau described opposition MPs js "nobodies" and criticized some of his own backbench sup- pliers for not doing enough homework. So highly regarded is the MP, Ihe survey showed, that a Cana- dian prefers to write him about his problems rather than make a free telephone call to a civil servant. Fcrly-sLx per cent of. the 7.600 persons interviewed in the sur- vey described their dealings with opposed to cold, impersonal and strained. However, 30 per cent said such dealings were co-operalive while 24 per cent had no partic- ular opinion en the subject. Mr. Trudeau's decision to set up Information Canada as a government agency appears to fly in the face of one of thn sur- vey's findings. Twcnly-onc per cent wanted an expansion in information services but 30 pel' cent were opposed to expansion and 43 psr cent wanted things to stay about the same. However, another finding by the surv.ey shows probably bet- ter than anything said on the matter why the government de- cided to establish Information Canada. PUBLIC LACK DATA The survey found Uiat knowl- edge of government responsibil- ities and exposure to sources of government information w a s less common the less ed- ucated, housewives, students, the retired and the unemployed. The interpretation by York University of the survey for Uic government says: "Those who have the mosl need of government services are often the least likely to know about available programs and least aware of where to go fcr information or "Il.ence they arc seriously handicapped in making full use of their rights as citizens." Whether Information Canada is filling this gap is, of course another nucstion. Opposition Leader Rober Stanfield calls the agency Ma n i p u 1 ation Canada and ha? promised lo abolish it if he be comes prime minister. Mr. Triideau has net publicly praised Information Ca n a d a. Privately, he has severely crili' cized some of iLs actions. Giants may be living in Malaysian jungles KUALA LUMPUR JAP) A tribe of hairy giants, tanged and mousfached, might be living deep in the Malaysian jungles. Explorers call them tropical abominable snowmen. Two Americans say they have fresh evidence to support ac- counts of their existence dating back to 1870. Old descriptions tally with detailed reports by aborigines almost totally cut off from the outside. Two American journalist-ad- venturers, Harold Stephens. 42, of Los Angeles, and Kurl Rolfes, 29, of Ulica, N.Y., say they found and photographed an 18-inch human-like footprint far up the Endau River in northern Jolinre. They describe their findings, from research and a jungle trip, in Argosy magazine. "I have no doubts these man- beasts Stephens said in an interview. "I was very skeptical when we went into the jungle. But the aborigines' stories confirmed each other, and things began falling into place. When we found the footprint, there was no question." ACCOUNTS AGREE He said all account agree on some basic points. The ciea- tures are hairy, not furry, two- legged and tall, sometimes well over eight feet. They exhibit a strange urge to be friendly, as if hungry for companionship. Though many Malaysians pass the whole thing off as mul- (Jple imagination, Malayan lore is rife irilh stories relating to the man-beasts. A century ago a British trav- eler drew sketches of a speci- men of "hairy humanity" he said was captured in the Johore jungles and was being rlis- pa'.clied to Calcutta, India, for study. The record ends there, but his descriptions and draw- ing check out with modem re- ports. During the 194B-19GO Commun- 1st emergency when Ihe man beasls were thought to have been flushed from deep jungle a number of incidents were re- ported. A Chinese girl collecting rub- bei on a plantation, said she fel a lap on the shoulder. S'ne turned to find a female gian with two males hovering behind She screamed and ran. Later, a Malay patrol saw all three, bu they fled, leaving only foot prints.
