C. Graham. New Zea- land correspondent for The Canadian Press, recently visited Canada after a pro- longed absence. The follow- ing dispatch details his ob- servations of Canadian for- eign policy. By J. C. CP Correspondent AUCKLAND, N.Z. (CP) Canada's policy in world af- fairs in recent years has been somewhat of a puzzle to Com- monwealth nations in the South Pacific. Revisiting Canada after a long interval, I tried to find answers to some of the ques- tions raised. Australia and New Zealand lliink of themselves as further to the left in politics than Can- ada. After all, both have often had socialist governments and labor parties are only n few seats from power in both countries today. Yet Canada has acquired a reputation ir. international af- fairs for a markedly more lib- eral attitude than either Aus- tralia or New Zealand. Canada, for instance, has declined to enter the Vietnam war. It has taken a harder line to South Africa over apartheid than the Soulli Pa- cific countries. Canada led the way in open- ing relations with Communist China tvhile Australia and Now Zealand still recognize Good auto drivers classed as risks WASHINGTON (AP) asked Donald P, McHugli. a mericans who have never had vice-president of State Farm Mutual, the largest auto insur- Americi an auto accident or traffic ticket are finding themselves classed as bad risks by insur ance companies concernec about where they live or how they earn a living. People like Francis Barto o Chicago who pays a year for auto insurance. "I am 57, have not had an accident in 30 Barto told a U.S. Senate subcommit tee. "My policy went up without any accidents." Or Clarence Mitchell III, Maryland stale senator. He had an accident-free record but his insurance company told him i' wouldn't renew his policy. N< reason was given. A seconc company rejected his applica- Sss, eiss giyias a rea- son. Cases like these explain why health and auto insurance turned up as the top two con- cerns among American consum- ers in a poll commissioned by the White House. They also are responsible for a series of bills pending in Congress to force changes on the mammoth insur- ance industry. In ttie case of state Senator Mitchell, a state investigation disclosed that Allstate Insur- ance Co., the country's second largest auto insurer, had desig- nated certain Baltimore neigh- borhoods, including his, as "spe- cial marketing territories" where it was refusing to write or renew policies unless the ve- hicles were Raraged. CITE CRIME LOSSES The company argued that losses from vandalism and crime made it impossible to make a profit, so Mitchell be- came an assigned risk and pays for coverage that cost on the open market. In every major U.S. city there are similar stories. Premiums based on crowded streets and crime rales run as high as 5567 in Los Angeles, S706 in Philadel- phia and in Detroit. "It is often assumed incor- rectly that only drivers with de- monstrably poor driving records populate assigned-risk said a government study of auto insurance. "Would you agree that where you live has nothing to do with whether or not a person is a good or bad counsel for the Senate subcommittee Singer treated for exhaustion MUNICH (AP) Gospel singer Mahalia Jackson was in satisfactory condition today at McGraw U.S. Army Hospital where she is being treated for physical exhaustion, a hospital spokesman said. Miss Jackson, 59, was on a concert tour of West Germany and Switzerland when taken ill Friday. ance company. "Where you live may in itself have nothing to do with whether or not you are a good or bad driver, but where you live will have a good deal to do with the number of accidents you may be involved in and with the losses you will replied McHugh. PREMIUM GOES UP Francis Barto lives in Chi- cago. If he lived eight miles west in suburban Berwyn his premium would have dropped instead of going up The government study con- cluded that "the existing system ill serves the accident victim, the insuring public and soci- ety." "It is i n e f f i c i e n t, overly costly, incomplete and slow both on the record of its per- formance and the logic of iLi operation, it does little if any- thing to minimize crash losses." the nationalist government of Chiang Kai-shek in Taiwan (Formosa) and are only slowly accepting even a two- Chinas line. ANSWERS VARY How come Canada has taken a more "advanced" stance on such issues, people in the South Pacific ask. Is it a strain of idealism in the Canadian nature, or is pol- icy less altruistic? Was recog- nition of Peking dictated mainly by a belief that it was right, or by more materialis- tic motives like trade' When Canadians were ques- tioned on the point, their an- swers wore as varied as are Canadians., "Materialism? Greed more like said one influential Canadian. "Don't you notice how Australia now is finding difficulty with wheat sales while ours go along "Wheat was only a mar- ginal said a senior official. "We were selling wheat quite satisfactorily without any need to change policy toward Peking. "But you have a point about Canadian idealism. In certain other cases public opinion has obliged us to take action over which we as bureaucrats hart considerable doubts." TRUE IDEALIST Several of those asked be- lieved that the approach to China owed ir.uch to the per- sonal influence of Prime Min- ister Trudeau. "It's the sort of man he said one. "It was a typical Trudeau move." An academic director of a foreign policy program made this summary: "Canada is not guided by materialism or altruism, but simply by con- cern for the country's inter- any other nation." Yet he went on to talk about Quebec separatism in terms which stamped him as a true idealist. To an outsider there seems a certain callousness in some Canadian quarters to the fate of the 14 million people in Tai- wan. Ask what happens if Tai- wan is left lo its fale and the answer often amounts vir- tually to a shrug. Something will work itself out seems quite a common attitude, but there is not much evidence of great concern for an answer. But one of flic important factors in the Canadian policy over China and many other questions seems to the outside observer to Ire determination not to follow along tamely ID the wake of the United States and instead to strike a distinc- tive Canadian line for all the world to sec. AWARE OF GIANT In fact, to a visitor an out- standing trend in Canadian policy today appears to be a resurgence of tendency somewhat contrary to feeling in some countries where nationalism is apt to be an unfashionable concept. Canadians have always been aware of the giant to their smith aod have been obliged to wage a non-stop DOG DRIVING ROLLS How does a poodle get insurance lo drive? Appearing smart enough to drive this Rolls-Royce in Otttawa, he probably could, just as easily, an- swer the question. Actually, the photograph was taken from an angle which made the poodle appear to be driving through traffic. The poodle was really a back-seat driver. struggle to maintain a sepa- rate identity. Given the cir- cumstances, it would be im- possible for the issue not to be a constant preoccupation. But al the present time the visitor finds determination to main- tain independence of action particularly strong. It appears in various cam- paigns to free the economy as far as possible from Ameri- can encroachment, to ensure control of Canadian compa- nies by Canadians as far as possible. It appears in the resolve to try to avoid some of the prob- lems which beset Americans such issues as war and peace, racism, urban crime. SAFE AT NIGHT Nearly all Canadians I met showed pride in the fact that Canadian cities are still pretty safe to live in, that citizens can still walk in the streets and parks at night. A further manifesttation of the upsurge of nationalism is the extent to which attention is turning to the far north. I found determination to main- tain control of what happens in that vast exploita- tion, pollution, defence, and all other issues arising from the development of oil, natu- ral gas, minerals and other resources. The philosophy of surveil- lance and protection of sover- eignty in the north was cited in several quarters as a grow- ing issue, not only for the mil- itary forces but for the gov- ernment as a whole In spite of the problem ot Quebec separatism, I found no sign of the sense of defeatism or insecurity which afflicts some Americans today. Cana- dians appeared to be confi- dent that their problems could be solved, that answers could be found. Obvibusly there are many differing viewpoints, but I en- countered remarkably little sign of disillusion or despair. On the contrary, the major impression was one of quiet confidence.

Govt. business plans need talk By BUD JORGENSEN QUEBEC (CP) Govern ment plans for business ar what concerns Neil V. Germ; most but the new president the Canadian Chamber of Con merce says the way to start' in fluencing those plans is to ta to the public. Mr. German, 55, a Calga] lawyer, says businessmen hav not been doing a good enough job of anticipating what govern ment will dp and pending fed era! legislation now is a mattei of serious concern to the bus ness commimity. Persuading governments to make major changes once ireliminary legislation stag las been reached is a difficii ob, he says, VISITS CHINA Mr. German was part of the Canadian mission under Jean Pepin, federal minister o rade and commerce, that vis- ted China in June. The current situation in Chinf have been mobilized jut the West has had few de- make predictions a potential Canadian trade diffi cult. Mr. German said one signifi cant factor he sees is that re- ports so far suggest tha Chinese Premier Chou En-la has been losing influence be cause his name has not been mentioned. Canada must pursue contacts to establish the confidence of Chinese leaders if it is to gain broad entry to the Chinese mar- ket.

"It is important for us to de velop trade connections and learn the ropes." However, development of trade in China and many other Asian areas will be a long-term job and it will not be easy to shift the current pattern of heavy reliance on trade with the United States, DOMESTIC PATTERN The potential impact of p ing federal legislation will be the most pressing domestic issue during his term of office, Mr. Gernran said. He has just completed a year as first vice- president of Lhe organization and the presidency term is one year. When legislation reaches pre- liminary parliamentary stages "a lot of the ministerial and de- partmental thinking has been set." The competition would establish a tribunal with broad powers to control what it considers the imposed labor code are two aills which businessmen believe will be detrimental to business He said the situation in Can- ada now is like that of a family which must decide whether it can afford a Volkswagen or a Cadillac. Governments have been put- ting social legislation ahead of economic development, he said. "A lot of these things will not work unless we have a healthy economic climate." Annual corporation profits in Canada now work out to about 1500 per worker in the combined abor force of those corpora- ions. However, he said the value of lervices received by the work- irs through such programs as medicare and unemployment in- urance is greater than per apita and corporate taxes that provide a largp share of the evenue for social programs.
