Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Thursday, April The Herald Youth Camp Horizon for diabetic children No child should be denied the opportunity to attend summer camp. Kinsmen believe. For diabetic children, the Kinsmen of Calgary are sponsoring a non sectarian camp designed to cope with iheir special problems. Camp Horison will be open Aug. 3 through 14 for boys and girls aged eight to 15. The camp fee is S60 for the two week period and parents are asked to contribute as much toward this fee as they possibly can because actual costs range from S125 to per camper. However, no child will be denied the opportunity of attending camp because of financial reasons. Costs not covered by fees will be met by the Calgary branch of the Canadian Diabetic Association and other donars. The program is planned to provide all the fun and benefits of the outdoors, ensuring the special medical Watch for... NOOK Here Soon! and dietary needs of these children. Carefully planned diabetic diets are provided for each camper under the supervision of qualified dieticians. Medical supervision is provided by a qualified staff of doctors and nurses. A trained program director has planned activities to include campcraft, handicrafts. hiking, swimming, horseback riding, nature lore, camp fires, archery, group sports and games. Camp Horizon is situated 20 miles west of Calgary in the Bragg Creek area and was established through the efforts of the Kinsmen of Calgary and many donations from other organizations, including the Lethbridge Green Acres Kiwanis Club. Applications will be accepted in the order in which they are received. Deadline is May 31.

If you're NOTclaiming the standard 100 deduction for remember that this year you DO need receipts for ---------1 Model UN assembly Last year we told you "no receipts" for Medical Expenses. The result was well... it was such that this year we once again require receipts. And, since the total deduction does seem to cause some problems for taxpayers, the information below should help clear up some of the "grey" areas. Clip this ad and use it for reference when you're doing your own return. Before do I know whether or not I want to claim the standard deduction? Okay. Right now we're on Page 2 of your return, working on the last section, labelled "Deductions from Net And what we're calculating is the item in that section called, "Standard deduction, Medical expenses and Charitable Now. To figure out whether or not you want to claim the standard deduction, the first thing you do is add up the total of your medical expense receipts. From that, you deduct 3% of your net income. (Don't panic net income is the figure you've already calculated on Line 35 just above-all you do is take 3% of that.) Then, add up your receipts for Charitable Donations to a maximum of 20% of your net income (yes, it's 20% of that same figure from Line 35 and the 20% is new since 1972; before that it was If the total from your Medical Expenses (less 3% of net income) and your Charitable Donations (to 20% of net income) is more than S100, then you DO NOT want the standard deduction. If the total is less, or if you have no receipts to claim, take the and enter it on Line 37. (And if you do that, you can also stop reading, because you've done your part.) For those who are taking the alternate claim, here's how it's done. What comes first? First open your Guide. Go directly to Item 40. Read it carefully. Then read Item 41. Okay, I've read them. What do I do? Find Schedule 3 which is included with your return. Do exactly as it says and list your Medical Expenses in the top portion and your Charitable Donations in the bottom. Do fill in all the information. And do attach receipts for each expense or donation listed. Otherwise, the processing of your return will be held up. What if I'm not sure if a Medical Expense is claimable or not? Again, your Guide is the best answer. It lists clearly what types of expenses you may claim. As a general rule, just remember that if a Medical Expense has been paid or will be paid, by either a public or private medical plan, you can't claim it. Also note that although you can't claim expenses covered by a private plan, you can claim the premiums you've paid for the plan. Once you have the figure, enter it on Page 2, Line 39 of your return. I 111 And what are the rules for claimable Charitable Donations? The main thing to remember is that the donations must have been made to a registered Canadian charitable organization. Also that you must have a receipt and it must show the registration number of the organization. I donated my services and time instead of that count? Sorry, but no, it doesn't. In donated more than 20% of my net income to registered charities and couldn't claim it all. Can I claim the balance of that this year? Yes. But the deduction you're allowed fcryour and new contributions for 1973, cannot exceed 20% of your net income in 1973. And, if you are claiming contributions from 1972 on your return, attach receipts and note the amount carried forward from 1972 on your return. i donated to some U.S. I use them? You can if you received income from sources in the United States during the year. And, as in Canada, you usually can't claim more than 20% of the net income you received from the U.S.A. (Guide. Item I see. And where does the total of my Charitable Donations go? On Page 2, Line 40 of your return. Anything else? Make sure that your schedule and all receipts are attached to your return. Also, As you know by now, even one small error in addition can delay the processing of your return. I have a question you haven't do I do? If you can't find the answer in Sections 40 and 41 of the Guide, call or drop by your own District Taxation Office. There, you'll get an answer for sure. (In other words, follow April Aid.)

Coaldale students recognized Fifteen high school students were cited for outstanding performance in three or more subjects at the first student evaluation ceremony for the second semester at Kate Andrews High School, Coaldale.

More than half of the senior high students were awarded honors for achievement in one or more courses. Classes grow OTTAWA (CP) Jane Do- bell, chairman of the Ottawa board of education, predicts an increase in the size of school classes which now average 30.8 students. The need for specialists in areas such as remedial reading plus the salary demands of teachers both point to an increase, she savs. College campuses calm before the storm By PATRICIA FOURNIEH MONTREAL (CP) Col- lege campuses in Quebec province are quiet this year but a sociology professor says that, sooner or later, students will resume their protests with more determination and fervor than ever. Prof. Jacques Lazure of University of Quebec in Mon- treal said in an interview he cannot predict the form of the new protests but that he is convinced a revolutionary spirit still unifies youth in the province. The apparent calm here dif- fers from apathy on campuses elsewhere, he said. Students here had gone underground to prepare the next stage of "libertarian" or cultural effort to develop individuality and creativity beyond the norms of adult Quebec society. He called the retreat both necessary and inevitable after "skepticism, nausea and a very subtle form of repres- sion" forced students" with- drawal from the collective po- litical action of the 1960s and redirected them to self-devel- opment rather than political ideologies. Quebec people have never accented individuality or stressed personal rights, as people in the United States and the rest of Canada do, he said. By working with poor people and in citi- zens' groups, youth prove their "deep interest in life" and continued intent to effect social change, he said. He predicted the new form of broad collective action would be more enduring be- cause the participants them- selves would in the interim have gone through self- analysis and development. Prof. Lazure, 44, entered so- ciology after receiving his bachelor of arts degree at University of Ottawa and teaching there for three years. He obtained his mas- ter's degree in sociology at Notre Dame University at South Bend, Ind., and a doc- torate at Harvard. He spent another six years studying student movements in the United States, including six months at University of California at Berkeley during the first phase of student re- volts there. He returned to Canada to teach at Ottawa and Univer- sity of Montreal before going to University of Quebec when its Montreal campus opened in 1969. Prof. Lazure has published two books on the development of youth in the province and plans to write three more to complete an in-depth psy- chological, cultural and politi- cal study of the Quebec stu- dent situation. He said the Quebec inde- pendence movement, origi- nally sponsored by students, no longer is their prime ob- jective but is bound to play a part in their future political activities. Any dispute in which they became involved between Francophone work- ers and Anglophone employ- ers would provoke a language problem. However. Prof. Lazure said Quebec youth is inclined to see socialism as a more viable solution than nationalism. Students had come to recog- nize that socialism based on the model of other countries, like Cuba, is impossible to ap- ply in Quebec and were seek- ing a more "decentralized" version. Mr. Lazure suggested a Quebec socialism would be along the lines of projects at Temiscaming and Cabano. In both cases, local residents and employees pooled their resources to buy and revive an industry closed down by its owner. Residents in Cabano, 130 miles northeast of Quebec City, have been working for more than three years to re- open a cardboard plant. They set up an administrative cor- poration, raised among themselves, and re- ceived from the pro- vincial government. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By MARILLEE BOND Kate Andrews High School, Coaldale Out there it's a bird. No, it's a plane. Wrong again it's a SUPERSTREAKER. By ones and by hundreds, for moments and for miles, on motorcycles and on unicycles, in wheelbarrows and in wheelchairs, the naked and the live are showing their stuff. Not too much is being done to prevent these bare-bottomed maniacs from invading our public streets. There have been a few arrests for indecent exposure but the police don't seem to want to get involved. They seem to prefer to label it as an "absurd pehnomenon which is exactly what the world needed after a lousy winter." It is clear to me that the streakers of today are mere descendants of the telephone booth stuffers, goldfish swallowers and pancake eaters of yesterday. Campus nudity in itself is a tradition. In 1918, Fred R. Pierce stalked naked through a chest high ditch to win a bet. He was caught but this escapade did not prevent him from attaining his goals in life. He later became a presiding justice of the California Court of Appeals. Most of the streakers are white, male and on the run to make streaking an originality. Some interesting records have been set by streakers. Most streakers: of Colorado students are claiming a gathering of streakers but this record is sure to fall as the number of streakers increase. Coldest streakers: The University of Perdue claims to have sent a group of streakers out in 20 degrees below zero weather. Most daring streakers: A group of several dozen out-of- uniform cadets paraded through a U.S. Military Academy, pursued by a parade of astounded officers. The streakers somehow got away with this extraordinary outburst. Non-streak of the year: This award is claimed by a group of students from the University of Pennsylvania who called a "streak for impeachment" to take place at the White House on April Fools' Day to lay bare the facts about Watergate and give everyone the naked truth. Fortunately this was just a prank and did not happen. Most unusual performance: Five male students from the University of Georgia parachuted from a plane while spectators cheered from below. They repeated their performance for photographers the next day. Most unfortunate football player: Memphis State College was beginning to worry about the lack of speed they were getting from someone in their backfield of the football team. Sure enough, one of the only streakers the police were able to catch on campus was the quarterback. Why do people streak? "We're students and students are supposed to have one said. If that's the way people are going to have fun nowadays, let them streak. Streak for summer, streak for spring. Streak for almost any.thing. But don't streak around me.
