Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Bui, really, they don't know us at all Few Americans put off with Canada By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (C P) Only one American out of 25 seems lo harbor bad feelings about Canada, but most Americans appear to underes- timate by a long shot the ex- tent of United Slates influence on its northern neighbor. Fuel storage plan revealed EDMONTON (CP) A spokesman lor Imperial Oil says the company will spend million lo expand fuel stor- age at Resolute in the Arctic. G. A. Fullerton made the comment after reports that shortages of aircraft fuel have shot prices up to a gallon. The fuel shortage had been caused by a rapid increase in Arctic exploration spurred by oil ind gas discoveries. The fact that fuel require- ments must be estimated al- most a year in advance had complicated the situation, Mr. Fullorton said. The figures come from a Gallup poll of about Americans, undertaken at Ihe behest of the Canadian gov- ernment to test U.S. opinion about Canada. The poll is un- derstood to have cost An abbreviated report on the survey was published here by Canada today D'Aujourd'hui, a monthly pub- lication of the Canadian em- bassy here. A more complete report is to be published later this month by the external af- fairs department in its maga- zine, International Perspec- tives. Only foui' per cent of Ameri- cans surveyed had a "nega- tive impression" of Canada, the embassy's report said, in- cluding one per cent will] a highly unfavorable atb'tude, mostly as a result of Canada's acceptance of U.S. draft evad- ers. 'Friendliness, beauly, rec- reation and snow were on peo- ple's minds" when asked about Canada, the report said. Three out of four thought Can- ada would be a good place ci- ther to live or to visit. Forty-one per cent of those polled "thought Canada fol- lows the wishes of other coun- tries in formulating foreign and domestic policy." The fig- ure rose lo 59 per cent among those with a college educa- tion. SLIGHT OWN INFLUENCE Asked to name the country with the most influence, how- ever, more than one-quarter picked England and a lesser number named the U.S. France and Russia also were named by some, but they were far behind the other two, the report said. Americans appear to slight their own influence in the eco- nomic sphere as well.

"When asked to guess the percentage of Canadian indus- try that is owned by Amcri can investors, the median erage response was 29 per cent. "It is in fact estimated that roughly 51 per cent of Cana dian industry is owned by U.S. investors." The poll found a large num her of well-educated Ameri cans think relations between the U.S. and Canada are dete- riorating. Among the college trained, 42 per cent said relations were getting worse, versus 17 per cent among those with grade-school education. Only 28 per cent of the college trained thought relations were improving, while 33 per cent of the grade-school trained felt they were getting better. Among other figures turned up, 48 per cent favored elinu nating all trade tariffs be- tween the two countries, and a broad-minded 53 per cent believed that Canadian trade with Communist countries is not damaging to the best in- terest of the U.S. Youth burns self MOSCOW youth has burned himself to death and about 200 young peo- ple are in jail awaiting trials in the aftermath of two days of rioting in Soviet Lithuania last month, Lithuanian sources re- ported Tuesday. Street fighting in the city of Kaunas May 18-19 involved sev- eral thousands youths who shouted "Freedom for Lithu- ania" and hurled sticks and stones at policemen and para- troopers. The rioters, most between the ages of 16 and 24, took to the streets during the funeral of Roman Kalanta, 20, a student who poured gasoline over him- self in a Kaunas Park May 14 and set himself afire. He died 12 hours later. The sources reported that an- other youth burned himself to death about 10 days ago in the small town of Varena in south- east Lithuania about 50 miles south of the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius. The sources said the suicide apparently had sparked no riots similar to those in Kaunas and that the controlled press had made no mention of it. They estimated that about 200 youths were arrested during Ihe Kaunas rioting. Roosevelt not feeble at Yalta NEW YORK (AP) _ Mes- sages and memoranda sent by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the spring of IMS challenge a view held by some that he was practically feeble during the Big Three meetings at Yalta in Feb- ruary of that year, the New York Times reports. The documents, sent lo Prime Minister Winston Churchill until April n, the day before fit died, bear the president's signature and handwritten corrections. However, they were notably thinner when compared with tile bold strokes of his ear- lier penmanship, the paper says. The president's failing health had led some to believe that he had in effect removed himself from major policy decisions, the newspaper account adds. The documents were among previously unpublished mes- sages which were opened to his. torians at the Franklin D. Roos- evelt Library in Hyde Park, Churchill had written in his wartime history, Triumph and Tragedy, lhat although he did not have exact information about Roosevelt's health, "I had the feeling that, except for occa- sional flashes of courage and insight, the telegrams he was sending us were not his own."
