Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, March LETHBRIDQE HERALD-23 Dateline Alberta Posh centre will close EDMONTON (CP) Collingwood Acres, a plush treatment centre for white- collar alcoholics 20 miles southwest of the city will close this weekend because of a lack of patients. Ted Van Dyke, president of Bendwood Holdings, which owns the million facility, said there were "not enough people willing to pay the money necessary for their own treatment to support Collingwood." The last patient left the centre 10 days ago and the staff has been dismissed with the exception of one caretaker. The centre, complete with a nine-hole golf course and sauna, charged about for a three-week program and follow-up sessions.

Interpreting the news Canada out in the cold? By CY FOX BRUSSELS (CP) Pro- nouncements by President Nixon and State Secretary Henry Kissinger about the strains between the United States and the European Com- mon Market have been followed by a cooling-off period, setting the scene for renewed discussion on restoring co-operation. The debate prompts concern that establishing solid channels of consultation between the Common Market and Washington at the same time might isolate Canada from the mainstream of Western decision-making. Efforts to produce a formal set of principles about relations between Canada and the European the lines of a possible Brussels- Washington main at an exploratory stage, diplomatic sources say. The initiative came from the European the Canada responded by discussing the idea with individual Community members. But now a pause has set in while the Americans, annoyed over separate European ap- proaches to Arab oil states, review their own attempts to clarify U.S.-European goals. There is a recognition in Ca- nadian circles that a successful conclusion of an Ottawa-Common Market declaration depends on progress by Western Europe and the U.S. towards redefining their relations in the light of drastically changed world conditions. Meanwhile, following the Nixon-Kissinger criticism, Americans and Europeans are exchanging feelers on closer consultations. One of the major issues is whether the consultations should be held within NATO or whether some new arrangement should be devised. This is the stage at which Canadians are beginning to worry about possible exclusion. Joseph Luns, NATO secre- tary-general, favors keeping American-European con- sultations within the alliance. He argues this way because he fears that a number of al- liance members including Canada might ultimately find themselves left out of key policy designing. The Canadians are particu- larly apprehensive since they place importance on NATO as an outlet for their foreign policy views. One Canadian theory is that Canada, for various reasons, is able to make its influence felt more through multilateral relationships, such as NATO, than through bilateral dealings. Ottawa therefore feels an over-riding need to preserve NATO as a major means of Western policy-making. Thus, fearing that NATO's importance may be jeopardized by Washington- European disagreements, the Canadians consider it in their interest that harmony be restored between the Common Market countries and the U.S. The faster that comes about, the sooner a Common Market-Canadian declaration may materialize, they believe.

If your wife or husband had a net income of more than during 1973, you cannot claim them. If, however, they had an income of less than or no income at all, you can claim them. And this is how you do it: a) If the net income of your spouse was not more than you claim the full b) If the income of your spouse was over but less than you do just as it says and deduct net income from to get the amount of your claim.

As it explains, if you were single, divorced, separated or a and supported a relative in 1973. you may be eligible.

The calculation is exactly the same as for Married Exemption. (Example: Let's say you are a widow who fully supported your 12- year-old son during 1973. In that case, you may claim him as a "Married Equivalent" for instead of the standard for children under 16.) Once you have it calculated on Schedule 6, you enter it on Page 4, Line 66 of your return. Alright Now what about exemptions for wholly dependent children? Open your Guide to Item 36.
