Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta I THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wodrmday, Aucjuilt 4, 1971 Stanfield backs Red China entry OTTAWA (CP) Progressive Conservative Leader Robeil Stanfield held a news confer- ence Tuesday to talk about Japan, but spent an hour an- swering questions about China and explaining how lie favors the entry of the Peking regime into the United Nations. He also said lie would support the continuation of Chinese Na- tionalist the you'iiimenl of Taiwan. Mr. Stanfield, who re'urncd Sunday from an Asian tour which' included six days in China, said Communist leaders were emphatic in saying they regard Taiwan as a province of China. This was clearly the most important question to be faced by U.S. President Nixon when lie visits lhal country. The Conservative leader said there was no indication of any pre-condi'-ions for Ihe U.S.- China talks. However, Chinese leaders had said lhal Mr. Nixon would have to change some of his views by 180 degrees if progress was Lo he made. Mr. Slanficld opened his con- ference with a statement about Ihe importance of "paying ade- quate attention lo Japan." With all (he current emphasis on China, lie said, it is important lhal Japan not get the impres- sion it is wilhoul friends. Everything possible should be done to step up contacts be- hveen Canada and Japan, two big trading na'.ions outside the major blocs. He was surprised to learn thai no Canadian jour- nalists arc slalioncd in Japan. But after this opening state- ment, all Ihe questions nnd an- swers related lo China. He said lhal so far as Chinese membership in Ihe U-M is con- cerned there cannot be a two- China policy. There is only one effective government, lie said. The question is whether the Na- tionalist government wants to remain in the UN as Ihe repre- sentative of Taiwan. This would have lo be settled by the UN ilself. Asked whclher he has been asked to consult wilh Hie Ameri- can government about his trip, Mr. Slanfield said: "The U.S'. government is not demanding my services yet any- more than the people of Canada arc yet demanding my serv- ices." Apart from Taiwan, he said, the Peking leaders also pointed to the American military pres- ence in Asia as an important subject for talks wilh Mr. Ntxon. They had emphasized the importance of U.S. with- drawals from Korea, Japan and Tauvan. He didn't forsee any sensa- tional breakthrough in Canadian exports to China. But Ihcre was for Canadian industrial and business consultation in iclping to modernize China's teclmology. The people and government o! China seem to titist Canada, he said. He was "very hospitably used and entertained" during Ins visit, and his strongest impres- sion concerned the vast num- bers of people in the congested cities of China. ROBERT STANFIELD Goes to Washington o OTTAWA (CP) Conserva- tive Leader Robert Stanfield will have talks in Washington wilh Henry Kissin- ger, special advisor Ic- President just lln-ce days afler re- turning from a visil lo China.

Stench of rotting crops fills Alberta area air Ottawa i OTTAWA (CD A revenue department spokesman said Tuesday (lie government lias returned to n whose payroll deductions and other tax payments exceeded they owed last year. The average amount nf mil refund was These figures were compiled by Uic ricixirlincnl al Iho end of July after it was estimated to te had received about 95 per cent of the 1'JVO personal income lax returns due last spring. The deadline for filing returns was April 30, but there are still some returns expected. The penalty lor late filing is a flat payment of five per cent of the mvijjg, plus six per cent a year for as long as Ihe lax bill is unpaid after April 30. The revenue department esli-mated that 9.3 million lax returns would be due last spring. As of Aug. it had received and run them through the revenue department computers. Another mostly ones that were filed late awaiting computer assessment. By Aug. 1 a year ago, the revenue deparlment had received and computer-processed C.G million returns, and had another on hand. It had then paid out in refunds, with individual cheques averaging S150.29. REFUNDS RUN HIGHER This year's refunds are running 11.4 per cent higher in total volums, and 20 per cent greater in the average amount of individual cheques. Two factors, at fesst, contribute to the increase: There are more taxpayers, and more taxpayers made more money last year than they did ;n 1909. When Ihey enter higher brackets, the chances of overpayment grow particularly contributions, would have more than the maximum de-dueled from Iheir pnycliequcs and would he alile lo claim the overpayment as a refund. Tile maximum payment in 1971 is JCG.-IO, lobe paid by both employer and employee, ur for self-employed1 persons.
