The Journal- ists' Union had asked for a 12- per-cent raise and newspaper owners offered three per cent The agreement also set a new OTTAWA (CP) The govern- ment's white paper on changing the ir.come lax structure falls far short of "recommending what we believe should have been a drastic reform in Cana- dian says the Cana- dian Labor Congress. Tjnlike many other critics of the government's proposals, the CLC is more concerned about omissions in the white paper than any new impositions reform may bring. The chief omission cited in the annual CLC brief presented to the cabinet today concerns elimination of the 12-per-cent federal sales tax on rranufac- tured goods. "It is paid by rich and poor alike, thus negating the princi- ple of ability to pay and is con- sequently one of the mast re- gressive taxes in our tax sys- tem." CLAIM INADEQUATE The brief also says the maximum that workers may claim on income lax returns for employment expenses is inade- quate for many who must buy special clothing and replace- ments for their look. The white paper, the CLC says, would reduce by only small amounts I he taxes now paid by many low-income fami- lies. At the other end of the scale, "a taxpayer who receives a year would pay an in- crease of S35 as against an in- crease of 5177 for the taxpayer who earns "This can scarcely be called a brief assures the government that "we do cot for a moment share the views of those others who arc row engaged in a cross-country campaign to un- dermine the white paper what it has ostensibly set out la do."

CHICAGO SAP) Within three months the Union Stock- yards in Chicago will discon- tinue handling hogs and this city will be "hog batcher for the world" no more. In recent years the high cost of bringing the hogs to Chicago and increased efficiency in re- frigeration has driven much of the country's butchering busi- ness lo smaller cities nearer the farm sources of supply. The number of hogs arriving in Chicago has declined steadilj in the last five years. The Union Stock Yard and Transit Co gave this as the reason for dis- continuing hog butchering am pacrking. The yards will continue will cattle operations, however. Al (hough caltle receipts at the Chicago yards also have dimin- ished somewhat in recent years Chicago remains the country': largest markc-l for choice am prime fed cattle. The company's statement sait thai hog p r o d u c er s. selling agencies and buyers will be al lowed 30 lo 90 days to complcti Iheir business in the yards. The late poet Carl Sandburi gave the city (he "hog butcher' label in his 1316 Chicago Poems Chicago hogs then made up substantial part of the mea handled by the Armour and Swift meat-racking empires. Chicago took the lead in hog ulchcring and packing at the lime of the Civil War.
