Lawyers Under Fire OTTAWA (CP) Both oppo- sition and government back- benchers grilled representatives of the Law Society of Upper Canada today about what one member called the "privileged" tax position of lawyers. Society representatives went, lawyers, should pay tax on the before the Commons finance committee to register their objections to proposals in Fi- nance Minister Edgar Benson's taxation white paper that people in the 'professions, War Protesters Cash Bonds To Express Displeasure accrual basis applied to busi- tax on work in progress and unpaid bills. W. C. C. Rowland, treasurer of the society, and Stuart Thorn, including chairman of a special law-soci- ety, committee on the while paper, presented a brief which contended that "accrual ac- counting is not suited to the de- termination of income from the practice cf law" because it is impracticable to evaluate how much money a lawyer will earn from work he is doing or even By TJiE ASSOCIATED In Madison, a group of about cashed in U.S. savings bonds to express their displea- s u r e with developments in Southeast Asia. Students of die University of Massachusetts and Amherst College at Ainherst meanwhile planned mass withdrawals of deposits in three banks. In Palo Alto several dozen students, businessmen and housewives cashed more than worth of savings bonds Monday. bonds. "We decided we wanted to voice our objection lo the war in a sane and sensible said Mrs. Leidner. The students in Amherst ad- vised the three banks in adv- ance of their plan lo take their money out today. "We figure for every dollar withdrawn about will be re- moved from war said Dr. Gerald Gruman, asso- how much return he'll get frcm bills he sends to clients. Several committee members seemed unconvinced that law- yers have more trouble than businessmen collecting out- standing bills. Charles-Arthur G a u t h i e r an under- taker, argued that there was no fundamental difference between professional people and busi- nessmen. II was about time the professions modernized their ac- counting systems instead of "operating from the cash ciate professor of history at the drawer like a Htlle merchant of University of Massachusetts.

No major fights between gov- ernment and opposition arc foreseen in the remaining six weeks of the second session of the 28th Parliament which con- vened Oct. 22 and (oak three- week recesses at Christmas and Easter. Informed sources said Tues- day that two important pieces of legislation still have to be in- troduced: consumer credit con- trols and changes in the Elec- tions Act, including lowering of the voting age to 18 from 21. There mny also be a labor standards bill but for the sev- enth time since 1963 a Liberal administration is expected' to drop its plan to bring in a Cana- dian Development Corporation bill. The cabinet has spent a lot of time arguing about foreign in- vestment hi and control of the Canadian economy but has not yet decided on its legislative policy. CONTROLS FORECAST Consumer credit controls were forecast in Finance Minis- ter Edgar Benson's budget as a means to curb intlation. A bill to provide for control of water pollution and the changes in the Elections Act are. ex- pected to be time-consuming. But Ihoy seem unlikely to pro- voke a major clash between government and opposition. Conservatives have been putting up a stiff fight against the bill establishing national marketing boards for farm pi'oducls on the grounds that it gives the federal authority too much power. Opposition MPs appear frus- trated that there do not appear to be any major measures on which they can get a good polit- ical fight going. Gerald Baldwin, Conservative House leader, said Tuesday in an interview that Parliament is becoming irrelevant because the Trudeau government Jms taken on more and more power to act by cabinet order. Wages Drop Slightly OTTAWA (CP) Average weekly wages in manufacturing and construction dropped slightly from February to March, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported today. The drop is accounted for by a decrease in average weekly hours. Hourly earnings in the two industries showed an in- crease. Estimates of weekly wages in March showed that the biggest in March from in curred in construction. Weekly wages in manufacturing dropped 17 cents to ?117.16 from in February. Regionally, average weekly wages were down 33 cents in Ontario and 36 cents in Quebec although average hourly earn- ings in the two provinces in- creased two and three cents re- spectively. The Atlantic region showed an increase cf in average weekly wages between March ar.a February and a two-cent rise in average hourly earnings. There was a 40-cent increase in average weekly wages cou- pled with a two-cent rise in av- erage hourly earnings on the Prairies in tiie same period. In British Columbia the aver- age weekly wage rose 99 cents while average hourly earnings increased four cents in March from February. NOT AGAIN BUDAPEST (AP) The computer in the Budapest mar- riage bureau whirred and slipped out s card to the appli- cant looking for a wife, but the suggestion was rejected. 'This is the woman I married three years he told a clerk. "We quarrelled and parted." There were indications that Ihe Literals hoped lo bring in al this session n measure to in- crease the in- comes of members of Parlia- ment. This docs not appear possible now because the special com- mittee studying the matter is not expected lo report to the government unlil late June or early July. Moreover, the introduction of such a measure is opposed strongly by some NDP mem- bers and they could keep Par- liament in session all summer with a spirited fight. The NDP itself wanted to see some government legislation dealing with financial conflict of interest among somo MPs, especially senators who hold dircclorsliips in companies that have direct interest in the pas- sage-or blockiug-ol certain business bills. H o w e v e r, the government docs not plan any move in this field at the moment.
