Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 4-THl UTHJRIDQI HilULO Tutaday. November V Tax limitation plan California Governor Ronald Reagan's proposed tax limitation plan is likely to be passed in that state's vote today. The way in which people generally think about income taxes as something to avoid if at all possible and something to lament in any case should mean that the outcome is certain. Voting will be on a proposition wherebyi. state expenditures would be limited with consequent reduction in the taxes paid by individuals. Although that must obviously be an oversimplification of what is surely a complicated it is the way in wh'ich the governor has presented it to the people of California. Opponents 'of the which include a majority of the state legislators who have already turned it believe it can only be inimical to the best interests of the state. They fear its implementa- tion would mean a serious reduction in services and a widening of the gap between the rich and the poor. It may seem ironical that Governor Reagan should be seeking a method of reducing state income taxes when he successfully avoided paying any taxes to the state in 1971 as a result of existing write-off provisions. When such relief is available it might be wondered why any further assistance should be necessary. Many observers think this is a proposi- tion that can be carried beyond the citizens of California to'the American people as a whole and that it will be useful in making a bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 1976. Whether it is feasible in a complex society to reduce government spending is questionable but it is a popular conser- vative idea. If Californians force a testing of the notion and it proves un- sound Mr. Reagan won't be hurt since he will step down as California's chief ex- ecutive before his plan has io be ad- ministered. Implementing the bylaw Small town living is becoming increasingly attractive to city dwellers. The slower pace pleases them. Com- returning to their country at- mosphere after a busy day in th value their country freedom more than the travel cost involved. But small town living requires rules and regulations similar to those of a big city perhaps fewer and less stringent but equally necessary to ensure both property and health protection. Magrath's town long contented to leave livestock-keeping to the discretion of individual property has now decided to implement bylaw No. five years but conveniently restricting and controlling the keeping of livestock and poultry. During the bylaw's existence Magrath most of whom own large lots measuring 165 by 320 have kept livestock and poultry on their without but recently complaints have been lodged with the town council protesting the abuse of this relaxed attitude. A case in point involved as many as six horses be- ing housed on an individual lot. Mayor Pingree Tanner doesn't intend to change Magrath's relaxed image but merely enforce the bylaw's reasonable restraints for one horse to each lot and no sheep or goats in the centre of town only on the town's lots. James health inspector for the Chief Mountain Health Unit will be investigating complaints and bylaw infractions with violators liable to fines of up to Had some property keeping an excessive number of animals on their not abused their privilege it is unlikely bylaw No. 779 would have ever been implemented. But like most good tilings in life a handful of people can spoil it for everyone. Mayor Tanner and his council aren't getting sticky. They want Magrath to continue to be the easy-going community that has dis- tinguished it for the past 50 but when horses start peering into neighbor's windows and farm odors waft down the main street it is time already-existing drawn up to curb such con- are implemented. ART BUCHWALD The man who lost his tapes WASHINGTON for heaven's what are you doing in those I'm looking for my they not those. I'm missing two of my favorites John Mitchell's 'Watergate Concerto' and John Dean's 'Music to Be Impeached By.' They must be here making a mess of Dick. Why are they so important right promised them to Johnny Sirica and he's waiting downstairs. Where the heck could they have you loan a bunch of tapes to Bob Haldeman a few months I did. I'll call him this is Dick Nixon. Remember those tapes I loaned you awhile Did you return all of them to I've got the Magruder 'Overture to Perjury' and Colson's 'Executive Clemency Symphony in D Minor.' I'm miss- ing the 'Watergate Concerto' and 'Music to Be Impeached By You didn't take look around the house just in case Thanks By the how's it That's good to hear... How am I Just Bob. I've never been maybe Tricia or Julie borrowed come in here right away. Did either one of you take any of my Daddy. The last one I borrowed was the With Honor Suite for Drums and Cymbals.' didn't touch Daddy. I remembered David mentioning to me that you have the best tape collection of anyone in and he admired the way you kept them so neatly and in such excellent condition. He said someday he hoped to afford equipment for his tapes like you the servants in Pat. I've got to get to the bottom of you seem to be making such a fuss over two tapes when you have literally hundreds. Why don't you just give Johnny Sirica two other tapes from your promised him these Pat. You know Sirica. If you promise him something and give him something he gets let's think for a moment. Who else borrowed your tapes besides Bob at least a hajf dozen people who heard them at one time or another. But I'm fairly certain I never loaned them the John Mitchell or John Dean tapes. They were my particular favorites. You can't believe the sound quality I produced from them. You can hear every they're only you Pat' They're collector's items. People would give anything to hear those particular recordings. I'm the only one in the country who owns don't you tell Johnny Sirica that you lost thought of that. But he won't believe me. He'll think I don't want to give him the tapes. -And then he'll get mad and we'll only have a big fight and I'll lose my I don't see what else you can Dick. You can't keep him waiting downstairs all a minute. I just thought of something. I'll tell him the tapes don't exist. I'll tell him I never had them in the first place. I can't loan him the tapes if I don't can will you give him 'Fantasia in A Major.' It positively boils me to make sacrifices'' Nixon shouldn't quit By William New York Times commentator WASHINGTON Colum- nists James Reston and Joseph Alsop have joined Tom Wicker and Anthony Lewis in urging President Nixon to resign. For the long-run-good of the I believe the presi- dent should not resign. Here is a response to some of the most frequently given reasons for demanding that he 1. A embattled at miscalculation abroad. That was the point supposedly in the president's by Henry and seized upon by thoughtful Nixon-dumpers as evidence of the danger of having a presi- dent who does not bestride public opinion like a collossus. in the last month's Middle East President Nixon proved that no no matter how intense or will him from acting cooly and decisively abroad. The most recurrent theme of his presidency has been his firmness of purpose under which has a way of resulting in honorable peace. Much of the uproar abroad today comes from our not our adversaries. The Neville Chamberlain elements of the British now decrying Nixon's and are those who have shown themselves most ready to cast Hitl'er's escapees to the for fear of the discom- fort Arab oilmen could infict. Britain's hands-off policy might have evened the score for our 1956 Suez but this wasliardly England's finest and the irritation of British appeasers with Nix- on's Mideast firmness is something for the American people to be proud not worried about. Z. The country just cannot take any more Watergate revelations. Some politicians are trying to transfer their own wrist-to- forehead public suffering to the people at because some Washington denizens cannot stand the they assume the country cannot. A nation that experienced a decade featuring a rash of political a series of race riots and city- burnings that hung a pall of smoke over its and more than 300 of its sons killed every week in an undeclared and unpopular war such a nation 13 nbfabout to come apart in this less violent decade at the revelation of political abuses. That is not but now running in the streets. On the amid the worst of the stock market has moved 100 points interest rates and un- employment have come significantly and the dollar has strengthened around the world. Perhaps a Washington too preoccupied to launch its weekly new initiatives which used to lead to and inflation and war might turn out to be the best thing for the country. Whether or not a federal numbness is the paradoxical economic confidence is clearly on the rise. 3. As long as Nixon remains the investigation of his administration will be im- peded. Of course it will. The presi- dent is the target of a grand jury and he can be expected to do what he can to defend himself. If he were to permit a justice department investiga- tion to go in deep and to go on long to whip up unstoppable impeachment would the presi- dent then win brownie points for having run such a slam- bang Face Nixon stands ac- and he will co-operate as little as he must in the prosecution of which under our is the right of the accused. To quit would be to confess as we have no protestations of patriotic motive would and it is wrong to demand that a man considers himself innocent take action that is tantamount to confessing a crime. If his accusers think the president has committed im- peachable they should stop blaming Nixon for jot. proving it for them. They should appoint their awn arm him with the powers of judicial and legislative and make their case or hold their peace. 4. Resignation would avert a horrendous confrontation. Which is to say that the way to avert a consitutional clash is for .one side to say it was wrong and to skulk off. By the same why do not the Congress and the courts the match just forget about the whole Same result no clash and the same feeling of resent- ment would ensure at justice not having been done. A miscarriage of whether the result of a hunt or a is never for the In the sensible avoidance of confron- it is good to remember that it is not the president who is threatening to impeach the Congress. It is possible to be furious with Nixon's encroachments on civil astounded at the blunders of his worried about the erosion of public fed up to here with apprehension that the worst is yet to come and to resolututely oppose resignation. Quitting would solve and could cause great mischief. A new Israel is emerging By Joseph syndicated commentator til TEL AVIV A new Israel is emerging from the shock of the most recent round of fighting in the Middle east. Its character is not yet fully but enough is known to throw grave doubts on the theory that chances for a per- manent or even a very long are good. The moat striking feature of the new Israel is the attitude toward the military. The defence forces were once con- sidered to be Israel's miracle. and especially Defence Minister Moihe were the supreme heroes. Borders were main- tained against Egypt and Syria with forces numbering about one-fifteenth the size of the enemy armies. Now everybody understands that the the Israeli are miracle workers. At the very least It is acknowledged that Israeli forces sustained so many casualties in the first phase of the recent fighting it was im- possible to mount decisive counterattacks against Egypt and Syria. One universal conclusion is that a larger standing force is necessary. Gen. Sharon believes that Israel will have to stay in a state of readiness for months and years to come. So does Finance Minister Pinhas and he is already beginning to raise the money for the job. Now the era of belt- tightening has come round with a vengeance. Finance Minister Sapir has slapped seven per cent surtax on in- come taxes. Public services are being cut and hours of work raised. Nobody even noticed the other day when gasoline prices were raised by M per cent. Ideal life one Israeli put beinf changed overnight from Monaco to Most important of is the change in at- titude toward the Arabs. In the past the tendency was to smile at Arab threats while believing that it would be possible to work out peace through joint efforts in prac- tical projects. Now that view. has been shattered. The Israelis take the Arabs seriously as fighters. By the same they now tend to discount any Arab talk of peace. My impression is that the Israelis do not regard the pre- sent situation as stable. one general told me the right word was not ceasefire but intermission. As to President Nixon's claim that the Middle Bast is now closer to peace than at any time in the past 20 one Israeli minister just shows the depths of his pessimism over the past M Letters Student support sought I am using the facilities of The Herald to write an open letter to the students' society of the University of Lethbridge. We are approaching November the day our society has set aside to show our appreciation to those who died and suffered so that we might continue to live in relative freedom and prosperity. Our military hospitals are full of disabled men men whose homes and careers were dis- rupted who gave of themselves so that the yough of today and their could have the things they lost. Many of these young people are furthering their education through student loans advanced to them by a society these veterans fought to save and worked to create. For- tunately the majority of our young people today are aware and appreciative of what has been done for us in the past. They can do as the Remembrance Day slogan at least think if they caivt remember. Our junior'and senior high school students and students' council of the Lethbridge Community College are not only willing but eager to par- ticipate in paying tribute to the veterans who gave. I am disappointed and ashamed that the students of our in the past few years have refused to be a part of our Remembrance Day services or apparently see no need to give thanks to those responsible for the op- portunities in life they now en- joy. I certainly don't expect at their to be able to but it amazes me that with their level of academic they are to think. BILL KANE Lethbridge Next time look I am disturbed that The Lethbridge Herald printed coyote bitches won't howl byO'arcy Rickard. I have always believed that a newspaper would fairly report both sides of a story. The Herald has printed one-. Here is the other During the past number of farmers in the Claresholm area have been plagued by coyotes who ap- parently have forgotten that they are on earth only to eat rodents and insects and now have developed an appetite for pork and poultry. The farmers in question applied to the municipal district of Willow Creek to have 1080 baits laid out but were promptly vetoed by the Claresholm Fish and Game Association because they felt death by poison is cruel even for a predator coyote. As an alternative the association volunteered its services to aid in coyote control and the coyote hunt followed. The Herald reporters requested to be allowed in on the hunt and were readily accepted. But they were unfair in their reporting. Why didn't they take pic- tures of the dead Especially the one with her side ripped out so that her entrails were dragging on the ground when she attempted to make her way back to the shed. Or was it too or didn't they have the The next time we have a coyote drive and The Herald's reporters ask to come along they will be but they had better report it right or they'll be included with the coyotes' BOB ARLT Claresholm Corrects impression A by Jim Grant in The on Mr. accused Mr. Bushhell of destroying Mr. Bushnell was not responsible for this program being cut. He was in fact no longer a CBC ex- ecutive as he retired in 1960 to start his own private televi- sion station in Ottawa. The affair took place in 1966. Mr. Ouimet was president and put the axe to the program after certain management producer dif- ficulties took place. Mr. Bushnell was involved in the cancellation of the program on CBC radio in 1959 called Commen- after radio commen- tators were too critical of Mr. Diefenbaker. I think Mr. Grant refers to this although Mr. Bushnell was cleared of any wrong-doing by the Commons committee which investigated the demise of this program. My views on programming differ from Mr. as he was an_advocate of light- entertainment programming beyond what many would con- sider good balance I do not he should be accused of an action he never committed. ROGER Assistant Dept. of Political University of Lethbridge. Expensive pleasure Lethbridge dance clubs are taking advantage of lonely people and those who want to. learn to dance. The former charge of an hour has been increased to now that the club has changed its name. They have all kinds of tricks to beat dance pupils starting instruction 10 minutes late and quiting 10 minutes early paying for 20 minutes' dance time you're not instructors taking as many as 10 or 12 giving them five or six new getting the pupils so mixed up they can't remember anything the dance school makes a giving a new instruc- tor at each lesson with a different teaching adding further to the pupil's confusion. The dance instructors keep encouraging students to sign up for additional classes and offer a written guarantee that pupils will be able to dance by the time the course is com- pleted. The big payoff comes when the school closes down and re-opens under a new name leaving the student with a worthless guarantee. When you complain they say are sorry and offer you five hours' free instruction instead of the 10 or more hours you originally paid for. What about those guaranteed to learn to dance who have com- pleted their course and still can't They found when the school re-opened prices had gone with the pupil faced with higher costs if he is to pursue his training. How can a person be sure he will get what he pays for and how can we stop these dance clubs from continuing this dancing can be very dangerous to your bank account. DISILLUSIONED Picture Butte a must I disagree with The Herald's article on the Middle East en- titled years of homelessness Zionism and the claim that Arabs have a big advan- tage in that they can lose successive wars and still threaten Israel but the first one they win will be the last one for I think this is wrong. Just because a country has more men doesn't mean they can af- ford to let them die. It is too much blood spilled when even one man dies. So there must be peace.
