If, because you are claiming tuition "expenses for the calendar year rather than for the academic year, your claim does not equal the amount shown on this certificate, specify the portion of the amount on the certificate that :you are claiming for the calendar year, and the amount covered by the certificate for the immediately preceding period. Q. What does the Guide mean when it says tuition fees claimed must be supported by attaching to the return the approved form or certificate .issued by the educational institution? A. Certain requirements must be met before the claim for tuition is acceptable: The educational institution will issue to you a tuition certificate with the necessary information for income tax purposes.: Counter'or cash receipts are not acceptable. A. I am .a student at a Canadian university. How do I calculate the tuition fees allowable? A.

If I 'do this, my income will be reduced to under Does this mean that my father can claim me as a dependant? A. Yes, if your father supported you during the year. However, the exemption is reduced by the amount that your income exceeds Example: Maximum exemption 550 Deduct income over less 150 Allowable Exemption 400 In addition, a special exemption of a month is allowable for. full-time trainees and students attending a_ wide range of schools and post secondary institutions.

Solzhenitsyn has joined the band of Russian emigres, ranging from descendants of the imperial Romanov family to left-wing politicians, which has provided the West with an adopted tribe that includes artists, scientists and writers of world fame. After the outstanding 19th- century Russian thinker Alex- ander Herzen went into volun- tary exile in England, Czar Alexander. II became a regu- lar reader of his radical pub- lication, The Bell. Solzhenitsyn, shortly before his arrest and expulsion, said members of the central com- mittee, of the Soviet Commu- nist party were secretly and avidly reading his labor camp history, Gulag Archipelago. Both under the czars and under the Communist system, there has been a tendency to depict Russian exiles as inevi- tably going to seed as soon as they lose touch with their homeland. One of the favorite exam- ples in the last century was novelist Ivan Turgenev, whose last few lines were written in a mixture of Russian, French and Italian. However absence from Rus- sia might have affected Tur- genev's creativity, the return of his body to St. Petersburg in Fyodor Dos- toyevsky described the ang- uish of the Russian in- telligentsia at a famous rail- road station a major political event. In April, 1917, a sealed train pulled into Petrograd return- ing another Russian exile, alive and well, who was to change the face of his home- land. It was Vladimir Lenin. The revolution itself was made outside Russia, in the havens of Britain, Germany, Switzerland and Italy where generations of Russian radi- cals plotted the overthrow of the czars. The political influence of Leorr in was generally thought to be on the decline after his ban- ishment but in 1940 he was as- sassinated in Mexico appar- ently on the orders of Josef Stalin. INFLUENCE INDIRECT Solzhenitsyn's influence on the Soviet Union, where his works are banned, can no longer be direct. It is jhrough world reaction to the Krem- lin's moves against him that his weight is most likely to be When Yevgeny Zamyatin, author of We, a chilling vision of a future totalitarian state, wrote to Stalin in 1931 asking to leave, he said: "I beg that I be allowed to go abroad for some time so that I may come home as soon asyit is possible to express devotion to great ideas without crawling before small men." He was allowed out with his Wife and died six years later in Paris. In more recent times, a prominent writer sent out and later deprived of his citizen- ship was Valeri Tarsis, who went to Britain in 1965. Whereas Solzhenitsyn was first stripped of his citizen- ship and then deported as an alien, geneticist Zhores Med- vedev was deprived of his citizenship while on a lecture trip to Britain last year. PHYSICIST BARRED A similar thing happened to Valeri Chaidze, a young phys- icist who left the Soviet Union in 1972. A former member of the unofficial Soviet Human Rights Committee, he now publishes The Chronicle of Human Rights in the U.S.S.R. in New York. One of the most famous cases in the history of Soviet dissent, literary critic Andrei Sinyavsky, now lives in Paris after leaving the Soviet Union last August, but retains his Soviet passport. It is ironic that in Russia, where it is so difficult for or- dinary citizens to travel abroad, the supreme punish- ment should be exile. In his novel, The First Circle, Solzhenitsyn spoke of a punishment far worse than 25 years of forced labor. "It amounts to spiritual castration: Article 20, Section A, sentences a man to be de- clared an enemy of the work- ing people and to be expelled beyond the territorial limits of the U.S.S.R. Let him rot there in the West." 1600 ACRES FARM LOCATION: Alberta 40 miles from Lethbridge 5 S.W. village of Champion PRICE: oath 480 qrass bounded by Little Bow River, 1100 acres cultivated, 260 sown to rye and fertilized, 20 acres of hay, 40 acres in summer fallow, 620 acres fertilized at an expenditure of per acre. 6 room older home newly decorated, bushel .grain storage, large barn, new set of cattle corrals, plenty of good water.
