PRICES BOUNCE BACK NEW YORK (AP) market prices bounced back and shot upwards in slow trade today. At noon'the Dow, Jones aver- age of 30 industrials was up 4.93 at 709.61. Earlier it had been off more than five points. Declines led advances by a small margin. Analysts attributed market action to the short-interest re- port which will come out after today's closing. This report is expected to say that there has been an increase in the short position in the mar- ket generally as well as an in- crease in the glamor-stock short position, they added. This is a bullish sign, other brokers added, because a higher short position represents an in- crease in potential strength. Buying in glamour issues often produces a firming in the market generally, they said. At noon the Associated Press 60-stock index was unchanged at 238.9.

(AP) State laboratory tests have dis- closed concentrations of mer- cury in one species of wild duck. Tests by the department of natural resources found concen- trations ranging from .4 to 1- parts per of mercury in tests upon about 30 scaup ducks. The ducks are commonly known as blue bills. The U.S. Food and Drug Ad- ministration bans interstate shipping of any food containing more than .5 parts per of mercury. Most of the scaup ducks tested had concentrations of mercury above the federal standard, the tests showed. But David Jenkins, research chief for the department, said there seems to be no reason for public alarm. He said tests on other species of ducks were in- conclusive and tests upon 60 pheasants disclosed only tiny traces of mercury in each bird. I. H. Asper's Tax Column Church Tax Issue Still Simmering By I. II. ASPER "II government is seriously Interested in making the tax system more equitable as well as increasing substantially its revenue, it can begin by re- moving the unduly generous ;ax exemptions granted to reli- organizations. If it does within one generation the 3mrch will becorae an econom- c force in America, second in .nfluence only to the govern- ment itself." These are not the words of an anti-religious fanatic, but rather, come from the pen of a religious leader in the United States. The subject of church axation has long been a source of controversy below the bor- der, but except at the munici- xd property tax level, has never been thoroughly ex- amined in the Canadian con- text. This if-we-ignore-it-m a y b e- it'11-go-away attitude is fair to neither side of the argument. One does not take his posi- 3on in such a debate on rcli- jious grounds, but rather, on ais view of the function of the ax system as an entity. In- deed, influential spokesmen for religion can be found on both sides of the question. FKEE FROM TAX The current situation arises from the tax law at all three governmental levels. Church property in all provinces, valued at several hundred mil- lion dollars is free tram tax even though it is provided the services covered by the proper- ty tax clearance, fire protection and the like. At the provincial level, organized religion escapes taxation on its income. The Federal law also ex- empts from taxation all church profits whether derived from investing surplus funds or from carrying on a business enter- prise in competition with fully taxed regular corporations. It is in the latter arena in which the controversy in the United States has been most heated. Many philanthropists have endowed religious organi- zations by transferring to them; either during their life- time or at death, entire busi- ness enterprises which then be- come tax free. It is the fre- quency of this occurence that has given new voice to the con- cern over the Church's po- tential economic influence. In evaluating the situation, it would be helpful if all religious organizations in Canada which will avail themselves of free- dom from taxation, were re- quired to publicly disclose each year the extent and fair valu- ation of their holdings as well as their income. Such a law couldn't be construed as an in- vasion of privacy everyone else is required to do likewise and still pay taxes. It would also be helpful If religious organizations publish- ed the results of their financial operations. If the public were made aware of the way in which their tax free money was spent, perhaps a better under- standing of tiheir tax status would result. Another feature of the tax law which attracts fire is that which irovides that individuals who contribute to charity can only deduct for tax purposes nil amount up to 10 per cent of their income. Yet under given circumstances, members of re- ligious orders may earn their income in the secular worid (i.e. teachers, nurses) and pay no tax because all their salary is assigned to their religious organization wlu'ch after provid- ing them with then- living ex- penses also pay no tax on the residue. The complaint heard most often on this score is that the person earns his living from society, talcing a job which pays a salary which would stherwise produce income tax, but he escapes that tax by con- tributing his salary to his tax 'ree religious institution, which spends that money on projects with which other taxpayers may or may not sympathize, but over which they have no control. Yet the tax-free mem- ber of the religious order still receives the benefit of govern- ment spending to which he makes no financial contribution subsidized culture, hospitalization and Old Age Security are .examples. Let it be clear that there are persuasive arguments on both sides. The point is that they should be heard. The situation in the U.S. has now reached the courts. The first round in what ap- pears the first of a series was won recently by the Church. A New York taxpayer sued the City to force a recision of the property tax exemption for churches. His case was built on the argument that the tax exemption violated the First Amendment to the Constitution which prohibits governmental "establishment of religion." He argued all the way to the Supreme Court that the ex- emption, in these days of sky- rocketing taxation, amounts to government "sponsorship" of Hie Church at the expense of non-believers. A few weeks ago the Supremo Court ruled that there was not yet a sufficient connection be- tween tax exemption and state sponsorship of religion to war- rant the court quashing the tax- free status of the Churches. However, the court clearly in- dicated that it might not always take this position. Indeed, Mr. Justice William 0. Douglas, dissented from the majority, stating in his minor- ity judgment that "believers organized in church groups cannot constitutionally be given more favorable public financial support solely because of the articles of their faith than non- believers." One must hope the question will not have to be resolved by the courts in Canada. The Parl- iamentary Committees n o w studying tax reform ought to air the subject and include a recommendation in their report to Parliament. Such a step should be wel- comed by both the Churches and those who argue against their present tax treatment, (Mr. Asper is a Winnipeg lawj-er) Vacation Specials!
