INFLUENCED WHITING Miss Keycs admitted that her bandleader husband, himself an author, influenced the writing of her new novel, I Am a Bill- board. "He left me alone during the writing, but he offered some apt criticism when I had finished. For one thing, he pointed out that the girl in ihe story was too much of a victim; that was changed with a whole new sec- timi."

Lennon serenades retiring Thant M W YOHK John U THANT Unusual farewell No plans on abuse legislation PAUL JACKSON Herald Ollawa ISureaii OTTAWA The federal gov- ernment has no immediate plans to bring in specific legis- lation aimed at curbing drug abuse. That's what Health Minister John Munro told Alberta MP Paul Ycwchuk (PC Athabasca) in the House of Commons. Mr. Munro also told Mr. Yew- chuk that it will be several months before the controver- sial Ledain Commission report on the non medical use of drugs is ready to be made pub- lic. The Alberta MP told the H o u s e of Commons of the "alarming reports" of the ex- tent of heroin use in Canada and said he had heard reports that the federal governm e n t planned to tackle the problem. He wanted to know when news about the matter might be expected, and if the Ledain re- port was near completion. The health minister told him that while no specific legisla- tion is being considered at the moment, this situation could change. MANY AVENUES Added Mr. Munro: "There are many avenues for govern- ment action to cope with the mounting concern relative to drug abuse in Canada other than legislation, and this type of action is now being taken by my government.'' Mr. Yevrchuk has asked a number of other questions of the government in recent weeks concerning drugs and the Ledain Commission. The Alberta MP wants lo know whether anyone has been suspended from the Ledain Commission investigating team because of possession or traf- ficking in hallucinogenic drugs. In a written question, he also asked the government whether anyone who had been suspend- ed was still receiving a salary from the commission, The questions have noi, yet been answered.
