Make notes for future follow-up but don't get off the main track of get- ting the most fun out of the Warfare Approach Adopted By NFU On Farmer Issues By JIM POLING Canadian Press Staff Writer The National Formers' Union, organizing a struggle against what it calls fragmentation of farm power, has adopted a mili- tant approach. "I think that's obvious Roy Atkinson, farm- ers' union president, said when asked if the union's recent show of muscle-flexing termed militancy. could be "Farm communities right across Canada are facing disin- tegration. There's excessive ex- ploitation going on. As far as we're concerned things have to change." Mr. Atkinson, of Saskatoon, was in northern Alberta re- cently recruiting members and organizing them into chapters. He said in an interview that 27 chapters have been formed in the province, where late last Business Might Have Collapsed year his union was shunned by a majority of organized farm ers. The Farmers' Union of OTTAWA in Canada might well have col- lapsed had the government's tax change proposals been in force last year, the Senate banking, trade and commerce committee was told Thursday. Executives of James Richard- son and Sons Ltd. ol Winnipeg said capital markets could be ravaged in times of decline by the government proposal to treat capital gains and losses as part of personal income for tax purposes. The integration of investment and earned income for tax pur- poses is the heart of the govern- ment's white paper on tax change published last Novem- ber as a proposed basis for leg- islation. Half of any investment gain would be taxable as income. The taxpayer could deduct any capital losses from his income. Policeman Absolved Of Man's Death MEDICINE HAT (CP) A coroner's jury concluded here that 25-year-old Victor Boeder of Medicine Hat was shot to death last July 25 by city pol- ice constable William Onslow "in the proper discharge of his duty." Boeder iras killed in a gun battle at a city shopping centre after be and another Medicine Hat man, 22-year-old Raymond Maxwell Bradley, were inter- rupted in a robbery attempt and held hostage a number of city policemen and citizens. Medicine Hat police constable Boy Funk was shot and serious- ly wounded in the incident. Bradley was sentenced to 4V2 years in penitentiary for his prxt in the robbery attempt and shooting. Richardsons' dealer in stocks, bonds, grain, insurance real estate and other enterpris the integration feature in a lengthy detailed submission. The stead company proposed that capital gains taxed separately from earned income at a rate of 15 per cent Top rate under the governmen proposal would work out at 25 per cent. DISASTROUS EFFECT F. N. Hughes, deputy manaj ing partner of Hiehardson Se- curities, asubsidiary, sale "there wouldn't be any capita: markets" had the integration proposal been in force last year. Business would have come to a standstill. He estimated that the value of shares on stock markets fell by about last year and the value of bonds by per- haps on paper. Had income integration ior tax been the law, investors would have been inclined to sell securities to realize the loss in order to reduce or wipe out per- sonal tax on earned income, he said. The effect would have been to push the markets into collapse. At the same time, Mr. Hughes estimated, government revenue would have been reduced by be- tvreen and "Doesn't it frighten you that this kind of thought could get into the tax the sen- ators were asked in reference to the income-integration feature. The company presented de- tailed criticism of virtually every feature of the tax propos- als in a written pro- posal backed by eight separate oral presentations on aspects ranging from the impact of al- tered tax concessions to mining companies to alleged inequities in personal tax rates. Although there were some de- sirable features, the tax propos- als include "very great short- comings, both in principle and in application." berla voted against joining the national union and since has amalgamated with the Alberta Federation of Agriculture to form an organization called Uni- term Paul Babey of Edmonton, president of Unifarm, says the NFU recruitment .drive has had no. effect on his organization. MEMBERSHIP SECRET Membership in Unifarm is farm units, said Mr. Babey. The National Union has refused to reveal membership figures for Alberta or Canada. Mr. Atkinson says his farm- ers' group plans more activity in the coming months, but won't elaborate. "A good general never tells the oilier side his strategy. But it will be active." The National Farmers' Union, founded in mid-1969, has held large demonstrations in Edmon- ton, Regina and Winnipeg which, Mr. Atkinson says, gave farmers an idea of the power they possess. In Edmonton, Mr. Atkinson led chanting aimers into the legislature and threatened to invarii-- the chamber during a sitting. They demanded that tho government recognize the union as spokesman for Alberta farm- ers. WALKED OUT The union's latest display of mililancy was in withdrawing from the Canada Grains Coun- cil. Mr. Atkinson walked out council meeting after it granted membership to the Sas- katchewan Association ol Rural Municipalities and the Carman, Man., Farm Business Associa- tion. Mr. Atkinson said he was pro- testing seating of groups that "purport to represent farmers." The union also has told federal government that its wheat acreage reduction plan s unacceptable because of its 'coercive nature, its dis- GOREN ON BRIDGE BV CHARLES H.
