Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Dactmbar 1973 TV viewing cut suggested to aid energy crisis NEW YORK About 66.2 million homes in the United States have one or more TV says the A. C. Nielsen ratings company. It estimates the average household watches more than six hours of TV each day. How much would it ease the current power crisis if television viewing was cut by one hour each Experts say there's no ready answer. It depends on where you the severity of your area's power shortage and its type of power. The savings could be small or moderate. But in New the energy savings from a one-hour-a-day TV turnoff alone could be substantial since Consolidated Edison Co. generates 70 per cent of its electricity by burning oil. Con Ed calculates that if all owners of TV sets cut one hour off their regular viewing sch- edule each day for a they'd reduce the city's need for oil by barrels in that year.

Nothing like that even has been proposed informally. Continue strikes at chain stores MONTREAL Strikes continued today against Quebec's two largest supermarket after closing down almost 50 Domi- nion Stores Ltd. outlets -Thurs- day and forcing special delivery arrangements to supply Steinberg's Ltd. stores. The Dominion clerks and cashiers are in the second day of a strike. About warehouse and distribution workers and truck drivers for Steinberg's walked out a day ahead of the Dominion employees. Both groups belong to the Retail Clerks International Association and both walked out after a breakdown of talks on two-year contracts. About 40 of 73 Dominion stores in the Montreal area were closed by the strike Thursday. Management and other non-union personnel manned check-out counters in the other 33 stores.

What alerted astronomers was the fact at that the comet should not have been visible at all. And so they reason that by the time it arrives nearest the a dis- tance of about 13 million on December it will be a spectacular sight. Comet Kohoutek's an- ticipated brightness and its very early discovery are of particular advantage for skywatchers and photo- graphers. By late Dec- ember it will be at its brightest as it passes to within 13 million miles of the sun. Brian Marsden of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory feels that the most convenient time for viewing will be in the early evening between January 10- 1974. At that time the full moon won't be the comet should have come up well above the horizon and will probably be almost as bright as the planet Venus at that will be the brightest object in the slightly to the left and below the comet. Observers should look just slightly to the right of where the sun has set. Kchcutek's brightness will make it relatively easy to photograph. And because its path through the universe will probably not bring it back to our solar system for at least viewers will be presented with a once in a lifetime photo opportunity for a few days in January. A camera with a lens of or faster and which can be set up for time exposures with high speed film is a must. Set the camera on a tripod or other firm camera support and don't forget to use a shutter cable release to eliminate as much movement and vibration as possible. Use Kodak TriX pan film for black-and-white prints or Kodak high speed Ektachrome film for color slides. If you're us- ing a camera with an or faster you can even use Kodacolor-X or Kodacolor II film. Try exposures ranging from second to one or possibly two minutes with Tri-X or high speed Ektachrome film. The reason for this procedure is that it is sometimes dif- ficult for astronomers to predict precisely how bright a comet might be or how its appearance might change. Remember that because of the earth's rotation long ex- posures will cause background stars in your pictures to or streak. ex- posures longer than two minutes will cause the head of the comet to blur. In any you'll have time to ex- periment. Focus your camera on in- open the lens to its widest and aim at the comet. To add dimension and interest to your comet photographs try to include silhouettes of the surrounding landscape such as low etc. To im- prove chances of success in arriving at whatever is the correct exposure for a given bracket your exposures so that you'll have a complete series to work from. With an or faster lens on your camera you can try exposures at and and also longer exposures of 15 and 30 and and 2 minutes. Exposures will vary as the comet moves closer to the sun and becomes brighter and then as it moves away from the sun and becomes dimmer. HARDLITE LENSES...

Tax hater heads Denmark gov't By OLE DUUS COPENHAGEN Appearing on television dur- ing the Danish election cam- lawyer Mogens listrup displayed his tax form. He happily demonstrated that despite an expected in- come of more than he will pay no income tax this year. He made no that for the last five or six years he has made a fortune and paid no tax. fools pay income tax- Glistrup once said. there is no bigger crime against society than paying On the 48-year- old lawyer and tax specialist has moved into Denmark's parliament at the head of his anti-bureaucracy Progress party. More than of Denmark's 3.5 million voters supported the 18-month-old party. They gave it 28 seats in the 175-seat second only to the long-established Social Democrats with 46. But the frog- eyed man who talks with the speed of a machine-gun may soon face an even more serious battle calling for all the legal skill and tax law ex- pertise he accumulated in years of study. TACTICS UNDER STUDY For more than a a po- lice unit has been studying Glistrup's technique in setting up thousands of corporations and achieving zero tax for his clients and himself through an intricate pattern of deductible lending and borrowing from one corporation to another. This has earned him the nickname of Zero. But sources close to the investiga- tion say there is a good chance he will be brought to trial for tax evasion and other charges that could move him from parliament to jail. Glistrup is not perturbed. He says he has done nothing illegal experts claims he could be convicted only in a He also says he began dodging taxes only to expose the folly of the Danish tax system. He won election on a plat- form promising to exempt all incomes below from income tax and eventually to abolish the income tax alto- gether. He would cut govern- ment spending by firing civil servants a month until only about 50 were left and the country was free from what he calls It's unclear to political ob- servers whether the voters who flocked to Glistrup really believed his claim that increased production and buy- ing by a public without income tax would bring enough revenue from sales and value- added taxes to keep the government going. Jobless rate in U.S. rises WASHINGTON -The United States unemployment rate jumped to 4.7 per cent of the work force in marking the beginning of sharply higher joblessness as the result of the fuel the government said today. The bureau of labor statistics said that the number of persons out of work increased by last in a survey taken a few weeks after the Arab oil em- bargo. Economists expect that the first big impact of the fuel shortage on jobs will be felt in either December or January. The Nixon administration has predicted that the un- employment rate will rise to almost six per cent next year as the embargo begins to chill economic growth and forces more persons from their jobs. While total employment held steady at 85.7 the number out of work rose to 4.3 million. Cut prices TORONTO Texaco Canada Ltd. today reduced the wholesale prices of its gas- oline and diesel fuel across following the earlier pattern set by Imperial Oil Ltd. The company said the reductions result from calculations on tax savings un- der a new formula being used by the government to deter- mine federal sales tax on the products.
