OSAKA The scarlet-coaUd Mounties on duty at the Can- adian pavilion at Expo 70 will never get their man if they have to pull a gun. Japanese author- ities, who are touchy about peo- ple carrying firearms, were perturbed when they learned that sidcarms are part of Moun- tie dress. "No said the Japan- tee. "No guns, no the Canadian authorities are said to have replied. The Japanese digested this for a while, then returned with the suggestion: "Please to use wooden guns." Finally a compromise was worked out. Four new pistols were bought by Canada, their triggers were welded and the firing mechanisms destroyed beyond repair. The sidearms won't shoot, but even so every once in a while the Japanese continue to hint that they really would prefer thai the mounlies carry wooden pistols. B.C.

Do you bow, shake bands, or present your business card? The answer !s yes. Any one, two or combina- ion of- all three are accept- able in this traditionally for- mal country despite some of the inroads of Western ways. Bowing is not as widespread as it once was. and handshak- ing is becoming more com- mon. The business or calling card exchange is a ritual which just can't be Ignored if you are to make a hit with' your Japanese acquaintances. Of coarse, if you happen to run into a Japanese who hasn't got a card, or has run out, you upstage him if you present yours and he hasn't one to return. The trick is for both of you lo bring out your cards at the same time. If you are a bit late, you've lost the onenpmanship game right off. Bl.UFF IT THROUGH If you are caught card- short, there is only one thing to do: Bluff it through. Don't apologize. Reach for your pocket as if you are going for a card, then hesitate and for- get il. Your Japanese friend will immedinlrjy start won- dering why you don't want lo give him your card. You've come up with al least a draw. Deciding whether to bow or offer your hand U a bit more difficult. On the first effort, you will probably try the bow and find yourself examining your friend's shoe shine while he has his hand extended in thin air across the top of your head. The next time things will be reversed, and about the third time you should come up wilh some tort ol compromise. It's not it an Impossible tc run into a combination of all three of those social graces, and lo watch experts at work is education in skilful man- oeuvring and sleight-of-hand. Witness two Japanese man- ufacturers meeting a prospcc- ive North American buyer in hold lobby: Afler Ihe pre- .iminary confusion about .ng and handshakes, they agree on the bow. AU three ww, at the same time reach- ing wilh one hand into a back socket for their calling cards, coming up together wilh smiles and cards extended. A perfect start for a busi- ness relationship! Among the natives, bowing is still a graceful tradition hut more and more the younger generation are switching to the handshake. To the tradi- tional Japanese the touching of hands is for close friends only. Students no longer bow to their teachers inside and out- side school, many times a day. Now, a bow at the start of Ihe day and one at farewell is sufficient. But the tradition lingers on elsewhere. Train lickct inspectors bow on entering and leaving a comparlmenl, and before and offer checking each passenger's ticket. Elcvalor girls at holds and department stores, girl ticket collectors on buses and the girls at store escalators al- most always insist on bowing every customer passes. Someone figured that for a store clevalor girl that proba- bly works out to about bows a day. trained to give special instruc- tions lo the parents on the best -.vay to care for the child at certain stages of the flight. For example, a parent will learn that during takeoff and landing the infant should be held in the parent's arms with tha seatbelt around the parent only. Other tips lo serve as a checklist of things to do when flying wilh a baby are as fol- lows: Carry a utility bag made of plastic or other water re- sislcnt materials large enough to hold bottles and jars of baby loud for the number of tie of milk or juice I0r take- offs and landings. Adults often use chewing gum to adjust to changes in air pressure, and babies find Ihe same comfort in a few swallows from a boUle Pack plenty of diapers But, if you run short, ask a stewardess for extras. For older children, there are generally playthings and chil dren's books to keep them amused when they are no looking out of the windows of the aircraft. It is a good ide< lo bring along a child's favont toy, or a new book or he has shown a particular in leresl in scanning. ATTENTION CHARTER PASSENGERS!
