MALAYSIA

A new country - the 14 Federated States of Malaysia - uses visual devices and taped commentaries on pickup phones to acquaint visitors with its people, government, industry and arts. In the center of the two-story pavilion, orchids and ferns surround a small lily pond. An exhibit of the Malaysian way of life includes a color diorama of a village. Elsewhere on the ground floor are scale models of a tin mine and the Parliament House in Kuala Lumpur. The country's industry and commerce are shown on the second floor - including an exhibit on one of its chief products, rubber. Films are shown continuously. A collection of art works is in the pavilion's restaurant, where waiters offer assorted curries from wagons, and visitors may order such dishes as satay - marinated beef cubes broiled and dipped in spicy peanut sauce.
