Retired farmer gives his land to relatives OTTAWA (CP) - The tax appeal board today gave its full blessing to a plan by retired farmer William Staples of Oxbow, Sask., to give to his son and grandson 3,714 acres of farmland. Under his plan, Mr. Staples put a selling pric* of $18,750 on land he sold to his grandson, and a price of $34,744 on his son's acreage. He made an outright gift of the down payments as allowed under the Income Tax Act. The remainder in both cases was to be paid at the rate of $1,000 a year with the agreement that he would make gifts each year to cover such payments. The revenue department disputed the action. It said Mr. Staples should have charged ?54,000 for land sold to the grandson, and $61,000 for his son's. It accordingly ordered Mr. Staples to pay gift tax on the additional $79,006.

The pale blue RAF flag bung at balf-mast on St. Clement Danes at the head of Fleet Street, the RAF's headquarters church which is filled with rolls of honor from the two world wars. High Commissioner Charles Ritchie and his wife represented the Canadian government and Maj.-Gen. Donald C. Laubman, commander of Canadian Forces in Europe and a fighter-pilot contemporary of McNair, led Canada's service mourners. The church, rebuilt in 1958 after the original building by Sir Christopher Wren had been destroyed by Nazi bombers in 1941, was more than two-thirds full for the 25-minute service. Family mourners were led by Col. McNair's wife Barbara and his two sons. A family friend, Roderick Smith, flew from Vancouver for the funeral. The service was conducted by Rev. W. R. G. Pellant. Afterwards a civilian hearse carried McNair's coffin to Brookwood Military Cemetery in Surrey for burial. McNair, who flew planes in support of the Canadian attack at Dieppe in 1942 and chalked up more than a dozen kills during his career as a fighter pilot, bad been ill for about a month. Government is spending less than decade ago By IRVING C. WIIYN0T Canadian Press Business Editor Would you believe that the federal government is spending less thxn it did 10 years ago? Not many taxpayers would, but it is a fact, at least if you look at it as a proportion of gross national product. Finance Minister Benson made the point in a Toronto speech last week. He said it is important that government spending programs be subjected constantly to "the most careful scrutiny to ensure efficiency o f administration, and reassess their importance in terms of changing conditions and priorities." But he held out little hope that government spending would be curtailed or even held at its current level. For a detailed look at Just what various levels of government do take from Canadian taxpayers-the source of more than 85 per cent of government revenue-you can turn to the latest issue of National Finances, a handy reference on such matters published each year by the Canadian Tax Foundation. REMARKS CONFIRMED It confirms, for instance, Mr. Benson's remarks. It shows federal government spending in 1969 at 17.2 per cent of gross national product, the total of all goods and services. That is a slight increase from 1968 but down from 17.9 per cent in 1959. Fears increase in funeral costs Wardair trying to meet CTC requirements OTTAWA (CP) - Transport Minister Don Jamieson told the Commons Tuesday he understands that officials of Wardair Ltd. of Edmonton are having "some success" in meeting federal requirements for operation of its international charter air service. The Canadian Transport Commission recently ruled that Wardair must confine its international charter services to U.S. points until it posts a performance bond with the commission for other, non - domestic charters. In reply to Marcel Lambert tPC-Edmonton West), Mr. Jamieson said he has been informed that' company officials are trying to meet the requirements and his latest report was that they were having some succecs. He said he bad not received any formal appeal against the commission ruling. CALGARY (CP) - The purchase of several Canadian funeral homes by United States interests could lead to large increases in the cost of funerals, says the secretary of the Calgary Co-operative Memorial Society. Paul Gregg told a service club meeting the danger is "that U.S. - owned businesses with their spectacular, ostentatious services will just about double existing costs." "The average funeral service in Canada costs about $500, not including the cost of plot, headstone or marker, or cremation." Canada has no room for "grief therapists" offering gaudy ceremonies designed to sooth the conscience of guilt-stricken next-of-kin, Mr. Gregg said. "Very often these practices work a hardship on people who can't afford them. "Funerals should be simple and inexpensive while at the same time keeping a perfect touch of dignity." Mr. Gregg said only 36 of 1,900 funeral homes in Canada are U.S. - owned, but they are all successful businessses in large cities. LESS AT HOME Only about one in seven births now take place at home in Britain. It is true, of course, that governments are taking-and spending-more of the taxpayers money if you look at it as a total. Total government revenue-federal, provincial and local-was about $26,000 million in 1969, with the. federal government taking $14,300 million. Breaking that down to an individual basis, it means that all leveL<; of government took in about $1,358 per capita in revenue and spent about $1,254. Of this, federal government revenue was $679 per capita and spending $513. That would indicate that government spending accounts for a hefty slice of GNP-something over 33.5 per cent. But much of this, the Tax Foundation book says, was in the form of transfer payments and subsidies from governments to Individuals and groups. REDISTRIBUTE INCOME "Such payments-which include pensions, family allowances, unemployment insurance, railway subsidies and interest on the public debt-redistribute income within the economy but they do not increase the governments' claims on the goods and services produced." Provincial governments also get a big slice of federal funds -increasing from $1,000 million in 1961 to about $3,700 million estimated for 1971. The Tax Foundation was formed in 1945 as a non-profit research and educational organization devoted to the study of taxation and public finance. The original founders were the Canadian Bar Association and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants but the foundation now has more than 5,000 members covering most other professions as well. College totals climb EDMONTON (CP) - The rate of enrolment increases at Alberta's universities appears to be dropping but is rising in the province's colleges, Education Minister Robert Clark said here. Mr. Clark said in a newt release that this trend resulted partially from the government's efforts to expand opportunities in the colleges, while meeting essential needs at the universities. The 1968-69 enrolment at the province's three universities was about 23,000, a 23.2 per cent increase over the previous term. A 15.7-per-cent increase was noted in the 1960-70 term and the present enrolment of 29,000 increased 9.1 par cent from 1969-70. The province's live colleges have a present enrolment of about 5,000, a 37-per cent increase over last year when there was a 12-per-cent increase in students from 1968-69. These colleges are at Grande Prairie, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Mount Royal in Calgary and Red Deer. Universities include University of Alberta in Edmonton, University of Lethbridge and University of Calgary. GUNS POSE PROBLEM OTTAWA (CP) - The problem of easily-availrble firearms is "serious enough for a thorough review," Justice Minister John Turner said in the Commons. Mr. Turner said he has asked officials of both his and the solicitor-general's departments for a review of the adequacy of laws governing the sale of weapons. miTim*** smell the value One whiff of fresh roasted Nabob and you know its going to deliver your money's worth.
