Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE HEMALD-TuMday, March Teacher training program planned VANCOUVER (CP) A crash program to train new teachers for British Columbia by September 1975 is being planned by some education authorities in the province. Talks are going on between the B.C. School Trustees Association, B.C. Teachers Federation, universities and Canada Manpower in hopes of launching the scheme by next month. Dr Henry Armstrong, executive director of the trustees association, said that even without the proposed reduction in teacher student ratios the province will be short teachers this September. He hopes to fill that by recruiting first in Canada, then the northern U.S. and finally Britain. (Education Minister Eileen Dailly told the legislature last month the government intends to reduce the teacher student ratio from the present 21.5 to 17-to-l over the next three years.) A variety of other factors will cause another shortage of in the 1975 school year. It is this shortage the training scheme is expected to fill. jCovelyf Styles!

MflRflNJG WORLD OF SHOES OP5! 6th Stoaat Downtown Crown corporation proposal advanced CALGARY (CP) A federal-provincial Crown corporation to develop and take over private companies now operating in the Alberta oil sands was proposed Monday by Jean-Pierre Goyer, federal minister of supply and services. He told a Calgary Chamber of Commerce meeting and a news conference that Canada should enter agreements with foreign countries to borrow billion from them and repay the loan in oil so all could benefit from it. Mr. Goyer said he was mak- ing the proposal as a con- cerned, individual minister and "not on behalf of the cabinet." He also said he has not discussed the proposal with the Alberta government because he does not feel it his responsibility to negotiate with provincial governments. He said he recognizes Al- berta's ownership of its energy resources, but added that the oil sands project was too big for one level of government and that the federal government must play a role. "The key words in my plan are. rapid and massive devel- opment, 20 plants costing billion, funds borrowed from foreign countries and repaid in oil, a holding company owned by Canadians, and construction and operation by companies from the petroleum industry according to Canada's national ob- jectives." Mr Goyer said loans of about billion greater part of it in equipment" be secured from the United States, the European Economic Community and USED ALUMINUM PRESS PLATES oo9 in thickness Size Ideal for lining between studs of buildings, sheds, etc., or under roofing.

"Canada's private investment in 1973 was approximately 518 billion. Therefore, if the oilsnds were financed by Canada alone, it would be detrimental to the investment community." He said synthetic crude oil from the oil sands will be sur- plus to Canadian needs. "There is no possible way the oil sands will be depleted before new energy forms like fusion, solar energy or fast- breeder reactors become a reality Mr. Goyer said oil companies have "corporate objectives" which do not always coincide with Canadian objectives. The industry, he said, appears to be spacing oil sands plants at the rate of one every two years which "is too slow to be in Canada's interest." He said the United States has declared its objective to be self-sufficient in energy by 1980 and "believe it." He said Canada must go ahead with fullscale development of the oil sands now to cash in on the current energy situation. The 20 plants should be built before 1980. Mr. Goyer said the U.S., western Europe and Japan should be interested in the proposal, as it helps secure their energy supply. The industry might still play an important role if his pro- posal is accepted. "The oil companies can be the sub-con- tractors of the Crown corpo- ration Outing with dad Senator Edward Kennedy with his son Ted Jr., on the slopes at Vail, Colo., Monday. Ted Jr., was given special instruction on the specially-designed skis. New cancer treatment for Ted Jr. BOSTON (Reuter) Doctors here are using a promising cancer-fighting procedure on the 12-year-old son of Senator Edward Kennedy in an attempt to prevent a recurrence of the cancer that caused the amputation of the boy's right leg last November. Dr. Emil Frei, director of the Children's Cancer Research Foundation, said the procedure involves administering the drug methotrexate followed after a precise period by another drug as an antidote. The methotrexate is allowed to kill as many cancer cells as possible before the treatment is halted for fear that normal cells also may be destroyed. This ability to kill healthy as well as diseased cells has caused doctors to use the drug with caution even at the risk of leaving some live cancer cells in a patient's body. Young Kennedy is receiving treatment every third weekend. His father is reported to have received instruction ort how to inject the antidote, if necessary, away from the hospital. The name of the antidote was not disclosed. The new treatment has been used in 17 other patients besides Kennedy. The others suffered from os- teogenic sarcoma or bone can- cer which usually kills 60 per cent of its victims within 12 to 18 months. With the use of the new double treatment, all have survived for at least one year. X "1 Parliamentary briefs IT you are an the total of your Canada Pension Plai contributions was more than last year, you have a credit comira Last year, more errors occurred in the calculation of Canada Pension Plan overpayments than in anything else. (They even beat out arithmetic errors which almost always come in first.) So. Since something obviously went wrong somewhere, this year we want to see if we can clear up some of the confusion The information below will help you when you're doing your own CPP calculations, so clip it and use it for reference when your own Income Tax Day comes. say if I paid more than 1 have a credit coining, but how do I know what I did pay? By your T4 slips. Box D. If you have more than one T4 slip, add up the separate amounts in all Box Ds, to get the total you paid. If you have only one. that's the figure you use. Where do I calculate whether or not I overpaid? At the top of Page 3 of your Income Tax Return. It's clearly labelled "Employee Overpayment of Contributions and The first line reads -Total Contributory Earnings per T4 slips, maximum What does that mean? p Look on your T4 slip in Box J. If box J is blank, use the figure in Box C. just as it says on your T4 Enter that amount on the first line If you have more T4 slip, and the totals irf Box J (or Box C) add up to more than ignore that, and just enter S5.600. S5.600 is the maximum figure you contribute on, no matter what you earned. It's likely you became 18 or TO.years old during the year, or received a retirement or a disability pension from the CPP in 1973. In that case you should use the figure in Box J for CPP calculations. (In other words only a portion of the income shown in Box C of your T4 slip will be considered for CPP purposes.) Be sure to check your Guide. Items 24A and 24B Do exactly what it says. Deduct from the amount you entered above No matter what you earned or contributed, that amount is the same 5600. It s standard. (The only exceptions to this are those who turned either 18or70yearsoldin1973.orreceivedaCPPPensionin1973. Check your Guide-Item 24B.) That figure the one you get when you deduct the from your Contributory Earnings on the first Sine. It can't be more than because maximum Contributory Earnings can't exceed and you've just deducted from that amount Now it says "Total deducted per Box Don an T4 Look at your T4 slip agam. Box D.

But this is where I get confused: "Less required of earnings subject to contribution or amount per Contribution Table, maximum Fortunately that statement is much less confusing than it sounds The key word is OR. so take the easy way and ignore the (They both come out the same in the end.) Open your Guide to the back, to the "Employ- ee's CPP Contribution Table" and look on the chart to find your "Earnings Subject to Contribution" which you now know. Right beside it as a figure telling you how much you should have paid. Enter that figure (and it can't be higher than because that's as much as you can contribute on) on that line. And then how do I get that last figure? Subtract. And enter the amount on the line labelled "Canada Pension Plan Now where? If there is a difference, take that last figure and do exactly what the return tells you to do with it. Enter the amount on Line 23 of Page 2 of your return, and again on Line 49 of Page 1 That's it. You've done it. What if my calculations show that I owe the Government more for CPP? That may be your employer's error. If so. we'll have him correct it. Do not pay the amount. Attach a note, bringing the error to our attention, and we'll contact him directly. Don't worry about it. Hold on. I was self-employed part of last year, what do I do? In that case, if your contributory earnings from employment and self-employment earned you more than last year (if it didn't, don't you'll need to fill in the bottom part of Page 3 labelled "Canada Pension Plan Contributions on Self-Employed it's just as easy An you'll find full instructions tor that in your Guide.
