II. ASPER One of the most troublesome brandies of the existing tax system is the clouded, area of capital gains. Apart from the em-rent controversy over whether or not they should be taxed, and if so what rate, for .hose working with the system, ;he difficulty has always been n determining whether or not a profit is a capital gain or merely regular taxable income. Obviously the distinction Is important since, for the present, capital gains are tax free. The tax free status makes a considerable difference to both taxpayer and tax collector. That also accounts for the great many tax disputes which arise in this area. If a person buys a home, lives in it, and subsequently sells at a profit, the increment is normally considered a tax free capital gain. But if he repeats the transaction four or five times in a relatively short period, his activities begin to take on the character of a business operation. In that case bis profits would be taxable. Even if the tax reform program ultimately includes the much expected capital gains tax, there will still be several years of tax litigation ahead of us, to settle arguments over the capital gains issues on transactions completed prior to commencement of the new system. Since capital gains come In an almost infinite variety of shapes and colours, almost every court adjudication helps taxpayers gain a better insight into their positions under the law. A r e c e n t Exchequer Court ruling is instructive. In the case before the court, the taxpayer's story wasn't contested but what was at issue was whether or not certain payments made to him by Shell Oil were taxable income or tax free capital gains. Because the situation is not uncommon in the business world, the facts bear repeating. WANTED SHARE The taxpayer was an Ontario corporation carrying on a fuel retailing business. For this purpose he owned oil storage tanks delivery trucks and a warehouse. In 1961, Shell, who owned a major asphalt producing plant in Montreal, attempted to gain a larger share of the as phalt market arising from highway construction in the taxpayer's district. The taxpayer, apparently quite inventive, dasigned a technique whereby hot asphalt could be shipped "by rail from Shell's Montreal plant to his terminal, where, before it cooked, it could be transferred to specially heated asphalt storage tanks, ready lor use on short notice. The taxpayer entered into an agreement with Shell to store the asphalt, built new storage tanks to accommodate its anticipated storage requirements, moving his fuel delivery operations to another location. Ths cost of the new asphalt storage facilities came to which was financed through a bank-loan. Tire storage agreement called for Shell to pay per ton of asphalt stored and to ship at least tons of asphalt annually until 1971 when the contract ran out. As a result, the storage company was guaranteed per year of revenue against which it calculated its operating cost to be between and An operating profit of more than per year was thus assured, to the taxpayer, out of which he could retire the bank loan obtained for braiding the storage facilities. He treated the asphalt storage business as a separate division of his company, distinct from the fuel delivers1 business. Separate bank accounts, books of account, financing, premises and separate employees were maintained for each of the two divisions. The arrangement with Shell continued until 1964 when Pl to Moore to Texas Gulf Sulphur to 18% and Bank of s'ova Scotia to 18V4.

Mr. Toran, of Madrid, is president of the International Commission of Big Dam Builders. He told reporters Wednesday the construction of a dam across the Strait of Gibraltar would create a new source of hydroelectric power. In additon, the resulting change in ocean currents would make the Sahara Desert blown, he said. By damming the strait, the flow of water from the Atlantic Ocean into the Mediterranean would cease and the sea would gradually evaporate, he said. In 30 years, the level of the Mediterranean would have dropped enough for sluice gates in the dam to be opened, generating enough power to supply all of Europe. The dam would also cut off a current flowing out of the Mediterranean into the Atlantic which forces a wanner current away from the African PATCHES ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) Mayor H. A.
