    Background: MALAYSIA'S EXPERT KNOWLEDGE OF WELFARE AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS CONCERNING ITS ABORIGINAL PEOPLE HAVE BECOME THE END OF MANY COUNTRIES WITH ABORIGINAL PROBLEMS.

    MALAYSIA HAS AN ABORIGINAL CENTRE AT NEGRI SEMBILAN, SOME 50 MILES SOUTHEAST OF KUALA LUMPUR. YESTERDAY (FRIDAY), A GROUP OF PAPUANS FROM NEW GUINEA VISITED THE CENTRE TO GATHER FIRST HAND INFORMATION. THE GROUP WAS LED BY MR. JOHN GUISE, A PAPUAN ASSEMBLYMAN.

    THE PAPUANS SPENT ABOUT TWO HOURS AT THE CENTRE OBSERVING THE ACTIVITIES OF THE ORANG ASLI, MALAY NAME FOR ABORIGINE.

    A VEGETABLE GARDEN FOR EACH FAMILY IS THE AIM OF THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT AT MAKING THEM SELF-SUFFICIENT IN FOOD.

    HIGHLIGHT OF THE VISIT WAS A BLOW PIPE DEMONSTRATION BY AN EXPERT ABORIGINE. AND THE TARGET WAS A JACK FRUIT. THE FOOT-LONG DART??? IS MADE OF BAMBOO FOR HUNTING BIRDS IN THE SURROUNDING JUNGLE.

    NEARLY ALL THE ABORIGINES ARE EXPERTS AT THE BLOW PIPE. MEANWHILE, THAILAND HAS ASKED MALAYSIA FOR EXPERT ADVISE IN HELPING TO SOLVE THAILAND'S HILL TRIBES PROBLEM.
