After coming out against le- galizing the hippie movement, evidence of whose "subversive" machinations abounds on every hand in Saigon in the form of long hair, granny glasses, beads and mini-skirts, the Viet Cong radio went on to denounce what it termed the Americans "enslaving and depraved cultur- al and educational policy de- signed to serve neo- colonialism." "The .depraved culture and the U.S. style of life has spread disastrously in Saigon, with snack bars and hippie, organiza- tions such as the Assassination of Lovers by Kissing and the Association of Soldiers Lovers, Liberation Radio said with barely concealed disapproval. Presumably ai these lovers would be material for Viet Cong re-education centres. The commentary concluded with and expression of confid- ence that the destructive schemes of the Thieu govern- ment and the Nixon administra- tion "cannot destroy the Viet- namese, peoples' national spirit and pure, healthy morals." The denunciation of the rock festival by the Viet Cong may come as a shock to people who think of President Nixon as a square. But to observers here in Saigon i who are used to agoniz- ing over such subtleties as whether or not there is freedom in South Vietnam and whether Saigon or Washington is more to blame for drug addiction among U.S. troops, Liberation Radio has provided one solid fact about Vietnam over which there can simply be no debat- ing: the Viet Cong have no use for rock festivals.

Tax Reform Object constituted major self-inflicted i components of tax reform will obstacles which have greatly worsened both problems. I can assure you that the tough rightly tough, in my view approach of the Ontario govern- ment today toward federal fis- cal and economic leadership owes a great deal to the white paper's adverse contribution to the economy and federal-provin- cial relations. But does the federal govern- ment share his assessment? Or will it remain at the same old stand, with only a change of clothes to show for 18 months of ever-deepening doubts about its grip on the economic, social and federal-provincial realities of this country? For if tax reform doesn't reflect, as its highest priority, reversing' the failure in economic manage- ment and the declining public and provincial acceptance of federal leadership, no other merit it may possess will really matter very much. I would like to discuss four broad areas of tax.reform the standpoint of the balance of Confederation itself: First, the tax reform posi- tion as it was at the beginning of the year, and where .we seem to be today. .Second, the apparent posi- tions of Ontario and Quebec, and how they relate to both Western Canadian interests and the balance and Confederation. Third, the issues which survival of tax will reform reveal whether the federal view on the economic and federal-provincial Nixon Issues New Call CONTINUED arrangements which would "protect the interests of both countries." The president's announcement spoke cf the "as to measures needed to prevent cit- izens of both our countries from being subjected to oil shortages, or threats of shortages." Mr. Morton said the Nixon administration had not aban- doned hope on reaching a .broader energy agreement, but spoke of a limited agreement on oil as "a beginning step jefore coming to grips with a common energy policy." The new U.S. position would appear to have less One way around this problem would be to build an oil pipeline from Western Canada to the East to displace the controver- sial overseas imports. However, there might be other alterna- tives to get around the problem. Friday's presidential move on Canadian oil came as part of a broad new drive to develop new supplies of energy in the face of a deepening U.S1. energy crisis. The president said he consid- ers this situation as "urgent." Special emphasis was placed on the develooment on a orqto- type of a "fast-breeder" nu- clear reactor which might eventually transform the whole U.S. energy picture. The -breed- er reactor would, when fully de- veloped, produce more tu e 1 than it consumed in the process help or hinder the survival of Canada and solutions to the now urgent objectives of reduc- ing unemployment, controlling inflation and restoring a sensi- ble value for the Canadian dollar, not to mention the in- creasing Canadian desire for greater participation in their own and tSe world economy. the sort of direc- tion that now seems necessary if there is to be a relistic basis for reducing tensions and strengthening the unity of the country as a whole. By Jan. 1, 1971, the govern- ment of Ontario had laidx the basic groundwork for a tax rtform position which offered an alternative set of. proposals for real tax reform, and a philosophical approach which seemed to favor more decentra- lization and .more private sector encouragement. The Commons committee, and even Finance Minister E. J. Benson, had made some progress toward eliminating the worst elements of the white paper. Nonetheless, at the beginning of 1971, it was apparent that the white paper still represented the basic work- ing paper and that more gener- al recognition of the following realities was needed, if national tax reform results were to be acceptable: That there was a well- developed broadly acceptable alternative set of national tax reform proposals on the table, available in its greatest detail in the three policy papers and five tax reform studies of the Ontario government. 0 That the provinces had not participated or been consulted in any effective way. That the larger provinces, especially Quebec and Ontario, had the power and the will to act independently, if national results were unacceptable. That integration was the heart that had to be cut out of appear o atin elcctric for Canada, if only because it a1sn limits the prospective ties be- tween the two countries in rela- tion to the touchy subject-of energy. Still left open however is the question of moving Alas- kan oil to U.S. markets. If the Canadian government presses its efforts to have the oil moved through a pipeline across Cana- da, rather that down the Cana- dian west coast by tanker, this would make for a broadening of negotiations on energy despite the U.S. move of Friday. The phrasing of the pres- ident's announcement suggests that, as part of an agreement on imports of Canadian oil, the U.S. would expect assurances that Canada would reduce its dependence on imports of Latin American and Middle Eastern oil. Eastern Canada is currently dependent on those sources for its oil and the United States has consistently expressed fears about the possibility of a disruption of supplies in an emergency which would oblige Canada to call for help from the U.S. PEMB1NA STAFFORD 474-1325 Deaths ARMSTRONG, Mrs. William 43, of Montreal, formerly of Winnipeg.

(For further information, please see classified death notices.) The president also announced moves to stimulate potentially Urge production of oil on the cohtinential shelf off the U.S. coasts, and in western areas where oil is locked in deposits of shale. The shale deposits, which contain immense quanti- ties of oil, have to be tapped by complicated process which the president is now to give new backing. Announcing the bid to Canada in a message to congress, the president said "that over the years, the United States and Canada have steadily increased their trade in energy. The Unit- ed States exports some coal to Canada but the major items of trade are oil and gas which are surplus to Canadian needs but which find a ready market in the U.S. "The time has come to de- velop further this mutually ad- vantageous trading relationship. The U.S. is therefore prepared to move promptly to permit Ca- nadian crude oil to enter this country, free of any quantitive restraints upon agreement as to measures needed to prevent cit- izens of both our countries from being subjected to oil shortages, or threats of shortages. We are ready to proceed with nego- tiations and we look to an early conclusion." the white paper, if it was to be acceptable to these provinces, and that both abandoning in- tegration and the flexibility to use tax credits and refundable tax credits were non-negotiable from the Ontario and probably Quebec points of view; and That the massive package concept of tax reform should be replaced by a priority approach related to real economic and social needs. I spoke on these issues in Montreal and Toronto in Febru- ary, and I have been, extremely happy with what has since been achieved in terms of increased public awareness and general press sympathy and in terms of Quebec-Ontario separate actions directed toward essentially common goals. Some impact has unquestionably been' made in Ottawa. But the precise ex- tent and response aren't relia- bly known or even to be guessed. The last issue however a priority approach based on real needs and digestive capacity hasn't been fully developed and deserves to be pressed hard in the weeks ahead. Both the On- tario and Quebec governments gave priority in their recent budgets to the encouragement of capital investment, despite the arguments of Eric Kierans on that particular score. But, rightly I think, they feel that needed personal income tax reductions should come first from the government which pui the temporary three per cent surtax on, which then tried to make it permanent m the white paper and which only recently extended it, namely the federa' government. It is worth stopping for a moment to note the Ontario 1971 budget approach, because it stands for.everything the fed eral approaches don't stand for: Severe restraint on growth of government expenditures. A substantial deficit which is brought about to a considerable extent by tax relief designed to stimulate investment and em- ployment, rather than by in- creased government spending. A tax credit incentive for new investment of for greater dollar impact in Ontario alone then the federal capital cost'al- lowance incentive of last De- cember will have in the whole country estimated at some 125 million Ontario tax dollars in one year against 25 million federal tax dollars. It repre- sents a substantial putting of 0 n t a r i o's money where its mouth has been especially if we remember that with about 11 percentage points of the cor- porate tax, Ontario has offered a five per. cent investment cred- it, which compares' with the late President Kennedy's per cent investment credit, on a 50 percentage point base. You will recall the Kennedy credit was widely hailed as an impor- tant reason for the strong eco- nomic recovery in the 1960s. Some rather important On- tario messages to Ottawa thus came through simultaneously. I can't believe they aren't the same messages most other provinces would like to send, ii they had the same economic strength to do so. Lack of confidence in Ottawa as the sole economic manager and a practical assertion of a provincial role in economic management in a widely-spreac federal country like Canada. I measurably weakens Ottawa's claim to fiscal resources solely on grounds of its need to manage the economy, a claim also weakened by the presen unhappy results of that man agement.

The -cholera has been iden- tified as the virulent and deadly Asiatic variety and many thou- sands will succumb as the southwest monsoon -approaches rom across the Bay of Bengal. It is forecast that the air mass will unleash a violent downpour over Bengal within the next week. The monsoon wi'l flood many of the refugee camps on lowly- ing ground and without interna- :ional aid on a massive scale it is difficult to see how diseases borne by contaminated water- cholera, gasro-enteritis and he- patitis, can be checked. The refugees in the 500 camps are packed tight under bamboo frames covered with tarpaulins and open at the side. Their plight will be bad. But the fate of the estimated two million liv- ing in the open is even worse. Even with a giant interna- tional effort there is little hope for thousands of children and nursing mothers vulnerable to disease and hunger. 1, toured refugee camps in West Bengal and the remote territory of Tripura- and saw starving, diseased .children who were' little more than collec- tions of bones covered in vain kled skin. Refugees are still pourinf into India at the rate of at least a day, many with bullet and shrapnel wounds, in a flow which began after the Pakistani Army's crackdown in March against East Pakistani seces- ionists, led by Sheik Mujibur tahman. But a'though safety from vfo- ence awaits them so does cholera which could prove to be the greatest killer in all Pakis- an's strife. with two economic-policy- inspired the invest- ment tax credit and the permis- sion to Canadian companies to deduct interest on borrowed money to buy shares in other companies. These independent moves, along with the earlier Quebec tax incentives, also con- cretely challenge the federal- provincial viability of the pro- to integrate personal and corporate income tax. The Ontario changes were concrete, understandable and related to practical objectives, i icre and now. They completely lack the flavor of technocratic utopianism associated with the Carter and white paper ap- proaches to tax reform. four Farmers' Strike 'Highly Improbable' RENT-A-CAR (i (J a L D a R ft M s" 942-3366 A young Eskimo hunter's chilling and magical adventure...

National Farmer's Union president Roy Atkinson said Friday that it's "highly improb- able" that a witholding action on the part of Canadian farm- ers will take place June 24. "It's a large job (to stage a form of farm strike) and it needs work completed at the community levels and a great deal of planning. For these reasons it's highly improbable that such an action can take Mr. Atkinson said in an interview at the Manitoba Farmer's Union offices in Win- nipeg, Farmers in Leeds County in Ontario have announced that they will stage a national farm witholding action on June 24 to express their disapproval of federal farm programs in par- ticular the government's mar- keting bill C-176. They have asked Prairie farmers who are sympathetic to the cause to join with them in the action. Mr. Atkinson said that the ac- tion would have to have "some chance of.success" before he'd try a mass demonstration by farmers. The former Landis, Sask., farmer who won the presidency of the NFU by acclamation in 1969 met with members of the federal government's agricul- ture committee in Ottawa this week and from the participation by federal officials and MPs, he said the indication was that of "a lack of interest in improving the inadequacies of the bill." Mr. Atkinson said that the lack of interest shown at the meeting "indicates a callous d i s r e g a r d for the farmer's views of improving the bill." The major inadequacies in the bill, explained Mr. Atkinson is that there is no formula devised in the scheme to assure equal treatment to farmers in various provinces and that it is discriminatory because it urges the producer to insist that there are similarity in regions. When calculating compensation to-various areas, he said, some regions will have shortfalls while others will receive more than 100 per cent. He said that the government is attempting to use the million from the grain stabiliza- tion program as a "battering ram to force this bill through the House." He said the NFU is asking all farmers to launch a letter cam- paign to Ottawa suggesting a separation of payouts from the program itself. He wants the million separated from the stabilization program immedi- ately and made available to farmers in-the 1971 crop year. Commenting on the sale of 130 million bushels of wheat to the Soviet Union announced by the Canadian wheat board early Friday, Mr. Atkinson said the sale ''demonstrated the soundness cf the wheat board system of marketing." He added that the large sale which will amount to million "will serve to strength en the confidence of the Prairie farmer in the wheat board sys- tem." Sinilh and Hi.
