Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE IETHBRIDG! HERALD Wednesday, August U, 1970 Small Pay-Earners Get Minor Voice OTTAWA (CP) Ten pri- vately-employed tax specialists have been appointed to an advi- sory committee on taxation for the revenue department, but the small wage-earner will be only indirectly represented. The committee of tax law- yers accountants, and business executives held its organization meeting in the board room of the revenue department's new multi-million dollar building on Ottawa's southern outskirts Tuesday. Sylvain Cloutier, deputy min- ister of revenue in charge of the taxation side of the department, said the group will advise him on details of tax collections, but not tax policy. The finance department, rather than the revenue depart- ment, sets tax rates. Mr. Clou- tier's department merely inter- prets the law and collects the money. Reporters invited to the con- clusion of the initial meeting asked whether the taxpayer with an annual income of, say 000 would have a voice. "I don't get any complaints from people who nrake a year because they don't come into my said one of the committee members. Another Weeds Choke EDMONTON (CP) A pop- ular lake in a summer resort area 45 miles west of Edmon- ton, is being choked by weeds which have sharply curtailed water sports. Residents of the summer vil- lage of Kapasiwin, near Lake Wabamun say the weeds, which first became a serious problem last summer, now are so thick that the cottagers have to spend hours clearing chan- nels to get then- boats into the middle of the lake. And even in the middle of the lake, says Mrs. Lome Bewley, the weeds are so tall "they look like evergreens growing in the water." STUDY PROBLEM The Alberta government has appointed a group to study the problem and additional re- search is being conducted by the University of Alberta. Dr. J. R. Nursall of the uni- versity's zoology department said warm water from a plant on the lake owned by Calgary Power may have some in- fluence on weed growth "but it is certainly not the whole prob- lem." Tom Stanley, production manager at the plant, said he believes the hot, sunny weath- er has had more to do with weed growth than his com- pany's plant. Farm Union Confused By Order GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) The National Farmers Union was confused when a Calgary judge denied its application to have an injunction against their picketing set aside because another judge ruled earlier in favor of the NFU, a spokesman said here. The Alberta Wheat Pool, Fed- eral Grain and National Grain were issued an injunction pro- hibiting t a e NFU from picket- ing their elevators and seed plants to protest fescue seed prices. The Injunction was upheld in a court rating Monday. A similar injunction by the United Grain Growers was dropped in a ruling by a dif- ferent judge. NFU officials in the Peace Kiver country said they will continue to picket elevators and seed plants wherever they are allowed to do so. Wool Filter Seen BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) Wool is a potential new ciga- rette filter, the International Textile Research Conference was told here by Dr. Menzics Lipson of Australia. He said wool fibres give 52-pcr-cent fil- tration efficiency against 34 per cent for the cellulose acetate filter most commonly used, but is more costly than the acetate. hastened to add that people on such incomes now may make complaints to members of the committee. Committee in embers are: Edwin C. Harris, Halifax law professor; Charles Pelletier, Quebec City accountant; Ray- mond G. Decary, Montreal law- yer; Charles McLaughlin, tax manager of Canadian Industries Ltd., Montreal; C. Albert sant, Montreal accountant; Syd- ney E. Ewens, tax specialist with Imperial Oil Ltd., Toronto; William H. Latimer, Toronto lawyer; D. Y. Timbrell, Toronto accountant; Alan Sweatman, Winnipeg lawyer; and Donald C. Selman, Vancouver account- ant. Mr. Cloutier said there was no detailed discussion at the com- mittee's first meeting on Fi- nance Minister Edgar Benson's white paper proposals for revi- sion of the Income Tax Act. The subject was raised, but until draft legislation has been introduced in Parliament the revenue department cannot get its teeth into tire meat of the proposals.

Women's Group Seeks End To Want Ad Classifications EDMONTON (CP) Mem- bers of the Women's Liberation Movement set up picket lines Tuesday in front of the Jour- nal, demanding an end to want ad classifications which they said "foster discrimination against women." The women demanded that the Journal stop listing ads ac- cording to the sex of the em- ployee sought and classify Item, instead, according to the type of employment offered. They suggested, for example, such categories as "restaurant workers needed, hospital work- ers needed, construction work- ers needed." The present classifications in the Journal are jobs of inter- est to females, jobs of interest :o male-female, and jobs of in- terest to males. "This practice discourages women from applying for the jobs listed under the latter cat- egory even though they may be well-qualified for the the women's lib brief said. The brief added that the Journal would not list "jobs of interest to whites" or non- whites because "this would con- stitute open racial discrimina- tion and would not be tolerated by most Gdmontonians." "Discrimination on the basis of sex must not be tolerated either. "We realize that the Edmon- ton Journal is not the source of these discriminatory practices. Industry and business buy ad spaces in the Journal and spe- cify which heading their ads are to go under. The Journal thus enables these businesses to be discreet in their unfair employment practices." Ross Munro, Journal publish- er, commented: "The women libs perhaps have a point but the whole func- tion of classified advertising is classification to make it as con- venient as possible for people seeking jobs. "If we don't indicate in some way whether the job would in- terest a man or a woman, there'll be a lot of confusion and wasted time wading through unclassified columns of type. "For many years, the stan- Idard classified practice had been to head up employment ads with 'help wanted 'help wanted female.' This ex- pressed a blunt preference. We changed our headings a few weeks ago to 'jobs of interest to males'; 'jobs of interest to females.' So did the Globe and Mail in Toronto. "This was a reasonable mod- eration." Airline Acquires Otter Aircraft KARACHI (AP) Pakistan International Airlines has ac- quired six twin Otter aircraft from Canada for its short take- off and landing services to be introduced shortly in East and West Pakistan, official sources said here.
