OTTAWA (CP) Small rural mail-carriers contracted by the federal government will have greater protection of their busi- ness interests in future, Post- master-General Andre Ouellet told the Commons commu- nications committee Tuesday. Mr. Ouellet said it was his in- tention to introduce legislation that would allow renewal, with- out bidding, of rural mail-car- rier contracts not above At present, the postmaster- general can renew contracts without tender that are under Corn-acts over are open to tender every five years under the Post Office Act. Mr. Ouellet said the raise of the limit to would take into account increased costs for small businesses. Under the present system, many small experienced busi- nesses lost mail contracts to companies which underbid them but which had less knowledge of the delivery business. The raise in limits would help protect the good companies con- tracted by the government, Mr. Ouellet said BOOKLET SUGGESTS EVERYONE IS NUTS LONDON (AP) The Brit- ish Medical Association pub- lished today a guide to self- psychiatry that appears to suggest everyone is a little mad. Prof. Henry Walton, head of psychiatry at Edinburgh Uni- versity, presents in the book- let has definition of a com- pletely normal person: He never overestimates or belittles himself. He accepts life as it comes and makes the best of it. He manages his own affairs, escaping ex- ploitation or domination by others. He never blinkers himself to awkward facts or daydreams of better things. He always finds the proper outlet for his skills and gets suitable recognition of his tal- ents. The booklet, called Know Your Own Mind, then ex- plains how this paragon can spot the nuts around him: The show-off, life-and-soul of the party, is probably hys- teric. The Romeo, surrounded by gorgeous girls, is likely mixed up and having difficulty in es- tablishing meaningful rela- tionships. Strong silent types are that way because they're aloof and don't really understand what's going on Sulkers could be paranoics. And the office braver may end up as boss- but he is definitely insensitive and slightly out of his mind.
