The effect of the west coast shipping strike is yet to be felt. However, as an inland area near the U.S. border, and due to the fact restricted scheduled and charter air services are still available, southern Al- berta should not experience too much inconveniences. The 24-hour walkout by air- port technicians, which ended at 8 a.m. yesterday, did not involve other members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers who are employed by AGT and CP and CN communications. "Our employees did not join the said Art Carlyle of AGT Edmonton. "T h o s B technicians who went on strike work at the airports and are employed by the federal gov- ernment." Earl Orson of CP public rela- tions in Calgary said IBEW members employed by CP did not join the walkout. Bad weather forced the can- cellation of most of Time Air- ways' flights yesterday. Two passengers, interviewed by The Herald while waiting for a de- layed Time flight to Edmonton, expressed disappointment at the strike. Pianist offers admirable performance By PAT ORCHARD Dr. Dale Reubart started the evening at the Yates Memoria Centre with a performance of Schubert's Piano Sonata in A minor. Dr. Reubarfs was a Wednes day guest of the University Concert Series. It began with deceptive leth- argy, as Dr. Reubart took awhile to adjust to the initial shock of this rather stubborn piano. There was a great deal to admire in his ability to build his mood changes into the note values themselves rather than taking liberties with the tempo However, he did not quite get the magical, dandng, prancing poetry out of the notes which a true Schubertian manages to make, so the sonata rcmainec thoughtful prose. He emphasized the stern, classical sonata heritage rath' cr than the romantic side ol 3w sonata, and did not submit to the tyranny of the metro- nome in rhythm. Dr. Reubarfs complacency was slightly less than ade- quate, but I must hesitate to add that there were many beautiful moments in which his ffortless technique enabled him to captivate his audience. The highlight of the evening was when Dr. Reubart pro- ceeded to give us a perform- ance of Japanese miscellany by Eliott Weisgarber. His was most remarkable and scnsi- ive interpretation of eight songs which kept us wholly en- grossed throughout the per- formance.

A most refreshing perform- ance. Dr. Reubart closed the eve- ning with a most intelligent performance of Liszt's E mi- nor Sonata. He is that rare creature, a scholarly musician with a virtuoso piano techni- que, reliable, but for my ex- citable taste, sometimes dull. This piece is a dramatic sonata structure which re- quires the mastering of many technical problems and then Burns Nicht Saturday The General Stewart Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion Pipe Band will present "A Nicht wi' Burns" Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Legion Memorial Hall.

During September, kilowatt hours were used at a rate of kilowatt hours per day. pulling the structure together. However, there are a thou- sand pitfalls, and seemingly Dr. Reubart fell into some of them. The sonata depends on sev- eral themes when rests are part of the thought. The per- formance falls somewhat be- cause he fails to keep the sound going while the phrase or sentence is in operation. Dr. Reubart may not have quite as uniquely personal a Lisztian style as some pianists, but for transcendental virtuos- ity, allied to poetic imagina- tion, his performance was most commanding.

Capital gains tax is only new item By GREG McINTYRE Staff Writer The "only major reform" in the new Canada income tax act is the capital gains tax, the president of the Lethbridge and District Chartered Account- ants' Association said Wednes- day. Bill Lord, speaking to an overflow audience at a panel discussion on tax reform, said the many other changes in tax regulations effective Jan. 1, 1972 could have been introduc- ed as amendments to the old tax law. The first accounting of the new law will take place wheu people fill out returns for the year 1972 in spring 1973. Capital gains are profits cal- culated on the increase in value of possessions such as prop- erty, houses or stamp col- lections. Most Canadians may safely disregard the capital gains part of the new tax bill, since their principal place of residence and one acre of land, most household effects and their car are exempt. As a general rule, said Mr. Lord, half the increase in value comprising the capital gain will be added to income for tax purposes under the new bill. Tom McNab, another of the five accountants on the tax panel, said the new law allows employment expenses up to ?150 or three per cent of in- come to be deducted from per- sonal income. Receipts for these expenses, incurred in the normal course of employment, will not be re- quired in order to claim this tax deduction, he said. Contributions to savings and retirement plans will also be allowed for income deductions Chinook planned The cycle is about to com- plete Since the Chinook winds piled the snow up last week- end, another 2.3 inches of snow has fallen along with the tem- peratures. The -weatherman says we may see the warm winds be- ;in to blow again late tonight jut for sure on Friday. The exact timing depends on the movement of an arctic stationed in northern Montana with a warm air mass above it. The forecast is for a low temperature tonight of 10 be- low to be pushed up by heavy winds Friday to a high of 35 above. The heavy winds mean tie drifts now blocking our front and back doors have a chance of reaching new heights, like the eves.

For annual income in tie to per year range, tax deductions under the new bill were smaller at each level. He also noted that personal exemptions have been increas- ed in the 1972 tax year: to from for a single person, to from for a married person and to from ?500 for people over 65 (formerly 70) years of age. Ron Colleaux, an accountant at Taber explained to farmers and ranchers that the federal government is in the process of phasing out the concept of a 'basic herd" for tax calcula- tions.
