Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LCTHDRIDCE HERAID Saturday, July 59, 1972 BULLISH BUSINESS Myrtis Dightman of Crcckelt, Tex., wants to become 1ho best rodeo bullridcr in the world, instead of the best black bullrider. He thinks he might moke it this year, with rides aboard the dangerous Brahma bulls at more than 80 rodeos. He's shown here atop a Brahma at the Cheyenne Fronlier Days Rodeo. Noted Italian director nicotine poisoning HOME (AP) Luchino Vis- conti, noted Italian director of The Leopard and The Damned, was reported some- what improved today after collapsing at a dinner. It was feared at first that the 65-year-old director had suffered a heart attack but doctors said later that the chain-smoking Visconti was overcome by severe nicotine poisoning. Dr. Ignazlo Scimone, physi- cian of the husky, grey-haired director, said "his condition is not a cause for grave alarm. Ke has been smoking too much lately." The doctor said Visconti would have to have complete rest in his clinic room "with- out even Uie fainlest smell of cigarette smoke." Visconti, who turned pro- ducer last year with Dealh in Venice, collapsed shortly be- fore Thursday night at a hotel roof garden. He fell, uncon- sious, striking his head on a potted plant. lie was taken to a private clinic in an ambul- ance. Customs takes close look at goods coming in under foreign tax favors OTTAWA CP) Goods com- ing into Canada under foreign lax incentives are going lo be identified through new Canadian customs procedures and Bcvc- nue Minister Herb Gray said here that if any government action is justified it will be taken. He announced that shipments of or more must be ac- companied by a declaration say- ing whether inc exporting com- pany received any corporate lax incentives, rebates or deferrals. Metis want homes ItEGINA (CP) Housing is a major concern and was dis- cussed by some Metis from all over North America who attended a recent confer- ence at Batoche, Sask., the site of the 1385 battle in which Metis leader Louis Kiel was beaten ar.d captured. Bruce Flamont said Metis live in some of tbe worst hous- ing in Canada and a provincial group has been established to provide funds, material and ex- pertise "to let our people de- cide where they want to live, involve them in planning their home, let them choose the color, size and material of their home and give them the opportunity to feel responsible for their home." Mr. Flamont is admin- istrator of the Metis Association of Saskatchewan. The provincial and federal governments are to share the cost of the program and the urban affairs minister has pro- mised funds are forthcoming. "Batoche was successful in terms of the white man seeing our Mr. Flamont said. "He could see we were able to accommodate and feed 000 of our people; also that we were able to share each other's plight and talk openly about our common problems." AH exporting countries will lie affecled, although Mr. Gray told reporters it was the American DISC program wlu'ch prompted the government to take "a very hard look at the general surveil- lance If the analyzed information in- dicated that government action should he taken, such action could fall under laws relating to anli dumping, countervailing duties or customs valuation. Mr. Grey said the additional- ly-sought information relates only to corporate income taxes and not customs drawbacks or commodity lax remissions. "The additional information required under the new system will assist the continuing endea- vours o[ the government to en- sure that the trade practices of exporters to Canada are consist- ent with Canadian legislation whelher it relates to the valua- tion of imports for regular duty, anti-dumping duties, counter- vailing duties or to the proper assessment of income for pur- poses corporate taxes'.' DECLARATION NEEDED Under the new syslem export- ers sending shipments valued at or more to Canada must altach a declaration saying whether the company is entitled to a tax benefit because the goods are being exported. "The declaration will also re- quire the exporter lo provide in- formation relating to the extent to which goods included in the shipment have been subject to changes in prices." Oppositions MPs have charged that automobiles being exported to Canada under the DISC scheme represent a clear violation of the Canada-US, auto pact. Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin had been consistently pressed in the Commons about the number of U.S. firms ex- porting to Canada under DISC, but he said there was no way to get accurate information. He said he decided against asking the U.S. government for such a list, because there were reasons to believe the request would not be met. Instead, he said some weeks ago, a procedure was being de- vised whereby the information would be obtained from individ- ual companies exporting into Canada. He emphasized that this procedure was not being aimed solely at DISC, and tliat oilier countries would also be affected. The governement will begin immediately to provide infor- mation to exporters, Canadian importers, trade associations and customs brokers. The new system should be in full opera- tion by Sepl. 1, he said. Mr. Qray told reporters that Ills department arrived al the figure because some 70 per cent of imports come in shipments valued at more than Ihis. "There are some entries every year valued at over Automobiles would be covered because Ihey are not shipped in- dividually, but in groups. He said that procedures would be changed If It was found the scheme was nol covering ship- ments effectively. He kept emphasizing that Hie program was not aimed solely at DISC and that Japan, Aus- tralia, South Africa and Brazil also had tax incentive programs for exports. The U.S. govern- ment had been informed of the government's new procedure "as a but he wasn't sure what other countries, if any, had been told in advance. "I expect a positive re- he said. Canadian cus- toms documentation would con- tinue to be less detailed than that required by many other countries. He doubted whether the new regulalions would result in a backlog at customs points. Tremors picked up by nine stations OTTAWA (CP) Earth tremors felt at Bengough in southern Saskatchewan Tuesday night were measured by seismic stations in nine Canadian loca- tions, a federal resources offi- cial said loday. Among the stations recording the tremors were Suffield, Alia., Flin Flon, Man., and Inuvik, N.W.T. The stations are part ol the Canadian Seismic Network. The earthquake measured 4 on the Kichter scale. BUILDS THE NESTS The male wren builds many nests and has a different male in each. Family farm preservation backed by Govt. TtEGINA (CP) The Sas- katchewan government was told here by provincial Liberal leader Dave Steuart that it should join the federal govern- ment in a program aimed at preservation and development of the small family farm. Mr. Slcuart told a news con- ference the New Democratic Parly administration of Prem- ier Allan Blakeney has "refused to enter into the agreement" and is "sacrificing the best in- terests of farmers for their own narrow purposes." "The reason for this Is clear. They are trying to force the federal government to back up their (Saskatchewan's) own land bank scheme financially, a scheme which is very much inferior to the federal pro- Legislation passed early this year by the NDP government established a land bank pro- gram through which the prov- ince can buy land from farm- ers who want to sell out.
