It seems to be more difficult to get information from a governmenL agency. To be com- pletely fair lo the Canadian government, it attempted lo overcome this problem wilh the creation of Infor- mation Canada. Information Canada provides all kinds of information about all kinds of things, and often for free. There's only one problem which remains, and that's getting it! On June 9 in the year of our Lord 1971, a seem- ingly pleasant and perhaps long-lasting correspon- dence was initiated between myself and the Queen's Printer by way of Information Canada. A list of government publications had turned up l.wo rather interesting booklets which we promptly sent for. The letter was businesslike, straightforward and most clear in meaning. The reply which was mailed from Ottawa on July 27, was long, covered a multitude of sins which we could have committed and as clear as the bottom of Henderson Lake. Tiie immediate reaction was to forget the entire matter. If they didn't want to part with their old booklets, who cared? We did. In part, because the information provided on customs hints would he use- ful lo the reader, and in a larger part because no one is going to be beaten by a form letter. In replying to an inquiry Information Canada sends you back your letter. Whether this is to remind you after two months what the whole thing is about, or whether it's to remove any trace of your inquiry from their premises is not clear. This step is referred to in the first line of the form letter. "We thank you for your enquiry which we are enclosing." And there it is, your very own letter. And three paragraphs later comes proof of your suspicions. "No record has been retained of this transaction." Kind of James Bondy, isn't it? This letter will self-destruct in three days. The letter goes on to discuss the various wrongs they might have found with your letter. Perhaps you have not been aware of the prices, or you have not submitted any money, or you have not submitted your own account number or the book- let is not available, or it is out of print. Alphabetic symbols have been neatly placed in red on your very own letter telling you what you did wrong. This also takes some deep' consideration since the itemized sheet of wrongdoings does not ex- plain the significance of each alphabetic letter. There is nothing like a form letter to make you feel like a blithering idiot. It sounds so simple, then why can't you figure it out. Well, with the sheaf of explanatory notes in one hand and the pink publications list in the other, light dawns. On the back of the pink sheet is explained that none of the one booklet is left in stock and we are to write to anuther department in Ottawa. The other booklet's problem is defined as mean- ing that we must either send our account number or money in advance. Knowing that we may even have an account number comes as a revelation, and it is forthwith discovered as being the blurry little let- ters in the corner of our address plate. It's solved. We noiv can send another letter, with all the previous letters and information, and our account number no money and get the one booklet An- other letter to another department will (perhaps) bring another free booklet. There are no hard feelings. And the government, perhaps from past experience in dealing with slow- to-learn taxpayers, even apologizes, in a way, for the complex manner of handling our simple request. "We hope this reply is satisfactory and that you understand that we value your inquiry none the less highly, despite the necessity of our answering in this form." Isn't that sweet? Friendship Centre school draivs 300 By BEVERLY-ANN CAHLSON Sl.-.ff Wrilcr "Understand infi Your an inlerdenomin- alional vacation bible school centering en brotherhood and being held nl the Lcthliriclgc Friendship Centre has drawn almost 300 children in the past seven clays.

She said Friday, during the final class, "I don't know whether or not we have achieved the goals we set out to do, but the children have enjoyed listening to the dif- ferent people who came to tell about their faiths." "The children have exper- ienced a lot of girart fellow- ship, and have gotten togeth- er remarkably said.
