Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, February 14, 1974 The Herald Youth Tim Hamilton, symbol for 974 seals campaign A 15-year-old student of Hamilton Junior High School will be the basic cog in the emotion appeal for funds of the Lethbridge 1974 Easter Seals fund. Tim Hamilton, a victim of cerebral palsy, has been chosen this year's Timmy by the Kiwanis Club of Green Acres. Every year the club chooses a Timmy as a symbol of the needs of handicapped children and adults. Tim is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Hamilton, 33918th St. N. Through the annual Easter Seal campaign, Kiwanis clubs across the country have been able to supply many of the handicapped with necessary health building services they would otherwise be unable to obtain. Lethbridge Green Acres Kiwanis Club this year has set its seal objective at Kick-off for the drive will be March 4 with the campaign running until Easter. Kiwanis members, wives, children and Tim will hold a stuffing bee that night, getting the envelopes ready to give to the post office for delivery. A. W. Shackleford will purchase the first seals from Tim. Chairman of the campaign, S. K. Smith says is spent locally and the bulk of donations goes to the provincial rehabilitation council. "This money provides the handicapped with numerous items, such as wheelchairs, crutches, hearing aids and forms of rehabilitative he says. "And there has been talk about buying a van to get people out and Mr. Smith says. As an additional benefit to the handicapped, Alberta Kiwanians operate summer camps from June to September. Organizations and clubs are encouraged to sponsor a crippled child for a camp session. Information on aid for handicapped may be received from Ray Cook at the local rehabilitation centre or perk Gatgate, chairman of the Kiwanis Club's youth organization. Local Girl Guides provide many helpful services By ELIZABETH HALL Two of the most important principles of the Girl Guide movement are service to others and good citizenship. The members of the Guide movement in Lethbridge, both girls and adults, are active in many aspects of the community. They have raised money through Starve-Ins, Wake-a- thons, and Sponsored Silences for the Cup of Milk Fund. Everyone from seven years old to the "over 21s" cleaned shoes one year for the Pakistan Relief Fund. They have labelled and stuffed envelopes, helped to sell chocolates and poppies, worked for the United Appeal, the Cancer and Heart Funds and the Red Cross Blood Donor Clinic. To improve the environment, they have planted bulbs in schoolyards and trees in shelter belts, and regularly turn out in the Easter holidays to pick up garbage and broken glass in city parks and schoolyards. Their Centennial gift to the city was the Guide and Brownie rose garden at the West end of Henderson Lake, where the girls planted 410 roses bought with money they had earned themselves. They still buy roses for this garden, and weed and prune the roses each year. The senior citizens are not forgotten; the girls visit the homes to sing hymns and carols, write letters and Christmas cards. They entertain at senior citizens' parties, and make favours for the clients of Meals on Wheels. Toys and books have been sent to the Blood Hospital at Cardston, to India, and school bags made and filled and sent to a Quaker run school in Africa. One Brownie Pack (girls seven to 10 years) has made a gingerbread house, decorated with candies and cookies, for Sifton House Receiving Home for two consecutive Christmases. Older girls work with retarded children, as Candystripers, and as baby sitters for the families of visiting service club members. As the girls grow older, they are encouraged to look beyond their community, beyond their country, and are helped to develop a sense of responsibility and caring for everybody in this world who is hungry, lonely, sick or afraid. Young people have a natural loving sympathy which tends to wither and die as we grow older and harden our hearts to the anguish around us. The Guide movement all over the world seeks to nourish and develop this sympathy, so that girls of all countries, colors and creeds may join hands in friendship and service. Halos still Timmy for 1974 sitting in his wheelchair, Tim takes notes during Hamilton's special education class. ULTtuCjCtttCU CStlVHl Since almost everyone is required to calculate "Unemployment Insurance since it can cause problems-lets go over it all. rpa Sfi On Page 3 of your return, there's a section called "Calculation of Unemployment Insurance It looks difficult. Some people do have problems with it. (Sometimes, yes, it's a little tricky, but it's not difficult) Anyway, the information below should help, so clip this ad and use it for reference when you're doing your own return. First Why do I have to complete the "Calculation of Unemployment Insurance Overpayment" anyway? To find out what your allowable deduction should be, which in turn affects your total refund. In other words, so that if you've overpaid, you'll get the credit. Where do I start? Your return should be open to Page 3. Your Guide should be open to Item 25. The first thing to do is read. Now, let's do it. Easy for you to say. But I get confused immediately with the two deduction rates and two calculations. Which am I? Dp not be upset It only looks confusing. First. If, like most people, you worked for one employer last year and have only one T4 slip, you are a Calculation I. If you worked for more than one employer and therefore have more than one T4 slip, look at Box (I) on your T4s now. That box will say either .6% or If all your T4s say the same: all .6% or all are also a Calculation I Now If you have more than one T4 and some of your Box (I) say .6% and some you are a Calculation II. And if that's the case, stand by. First we're going to do Calculation I. Calculation I: first line, 'Total Premiums deducted per box (E) on all T4 First look at the Calculation I example in the "Deductions" section of your Guide. Take your T4s (or in most cases your only T4) and record the from all Box (E) on that line lettered That's the amount you did pay. Next it says "Deduct: Required Premium per Premium Where's me table? In your Guide, at the back. Look at the amount in Box (H) of your T4 slips (U.I. Insurable Earnings) which may not exceed Find that figure on the table. Look under your rate (you already know that from Box I) and record the amount from the table on Line (B) of your calculation. That's the amount you should have paid Mine are the same. Now what? Then just take that one figure and enter it on Page 2 of your return. Line 25. And again on Line 27. You're finished. Mine shows an overpayment What do I do? You also go to Page 2. Line 25 of your return. On it you enter your Box (E) figure like everyone else. On Line 26. you enter the amount of your overpayment, then subtract to get your allowable deduction. Line 27. You also enter that amount on Line 50, Page 1. Now you're finished. What about Calculation II? Right Here we go. The first line reads: "Total Insurable Earnings per Box (H) or, if blank, per Box (C) on all T4 X I I I Do exactly as directed and add up all the amounts in your Box or, if blank, Box of yourT4 slips. The total can't be more than I'm sorry but my total is more than Whatnow? Now, you ignore your total and enter on the line 320. is the maximum amount you can contribute on, no matter what you earned. (So if the total is under enter the actual amount, if it's over, enter Next line: "Less: Insurable Earnings subject to .6% premium per T4 slips (maximum Take yourT4 slips and look at Box Put those that show .6% in one pile, and those that show 1% in Box (I) in another pile. Now take the .6% pile and add up all Box (if blank, Box Enter that figure on the line. Next line: "Equals: Insurabte Earnings subject to 1% Subtract, just as it says. (If you have entered on both lines, your figure there is NIL.) Next line: 'Total premiums deducted per Box (E) on all T4 Place all yourT4s in one pile again. Add up all Box and enter the figure on that line. Next line: "Less: Required Insurable Earnings (A) or amount per premium The key word here is so take the easy way and go directly to the premium table at the back of your Guide. Match figure (A) from above with the appropriate range of earnings in the table. Then, take the Required Premium under the .6% column and enter it on that line of your return. I assume I do the same with Exactly the same. Then? Add up those two figures. Subtract from the one above Now what? Follow through and enter the amount of your overpayment on Line 26, Page 2 of your return, and again on Line 50, Page 1. And if there wasn't an overpayment? In that case, you just fill in Line 25, and Line 27 on Page 2. And of course, you've already calculated that. What if I've underpaid? That's an error on the part of your employer and he must correct it. Do not pay the amount Do attach a note, bringing the error to our attention and we'll contact him directly. Don't worry about it. I'm sorry. I'm stifl confused. Read your Guide. (Item 25.) Look carefully at the Calculation examples. Re-read this ad. If you still have questions or problems, follow April Aid.
