The president, striking a 'pKice-through-strenglh" theme at two Republican party dinners here and in New York, said the United States could not abandon its world role because no other country had the strength to as- sume it. Nixon made his first direct personal intervention in ihe cri- sis over foreign aid, saying the risk of war would acreage un- less Congress restored the pro- gram which the Senate killed Oct. 29. He also delivered a strong de- fence of his decision to approve last Saturday's controversial five megaton thermonuclear test blast en Amchitka Jsland in the Aleutians. He said the underground test aimed at developing the Spartan j anti-missile missile, was essen- j tial to keep the U.S. strong as it sought to reach agreements with the Russians on scaling down the arms race.

Speaking in a Senate debate on Ihe visit last month of Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygm, Mr. Manning read newspaper arti- cles quoting Prime Minister Trudeau and Energy Minister J. J.

He said it was in Canada's best interests to remain com- mitted to the U.S. and not to the Soviet Union- He said Ihe Soviet government was the most ruih- less ill world history, "having used its might to crush its neigh- boring countries."

Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE MULTIFOCAL LENS (MULTILUX) on "tax plan OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment gave ground Tuesday when faced with a posse of determined to cut down a proposed change in the taxation of ranchers. Pat Mahoney. parliamentary secretary to Finance Minister j i E. J. Benson, agreed to an op- i position proposal to suspend debate on a snbclrnse in the tax bill that would require ranchers to pay taxes on gains deriving from basic herds. Alberta ranchers Jack Hom- er PC Crowfoot and Clifford Downey PC liatilc River led a two day skirmish against j the proposal. Basic herds established for breeding and calf production i pruposes now are considered a capital asset and gams from sale of part or all of the herd i is not taxed. The tax bill would do away with !hat concept. New herds established after the bill be- camp law would bf- tax-deduc- tible expenses when purchased and income from their sale would be taxable as ordinary income. In the meantime, profits from existing herds would be regarded as a capital gain. Half ihe increase in value would be taxed, half of any loss tax-deductible. It was then that he saw Robi- Bugler. 24.

Pat Mahoney, parliamentary Chanottctown secretary to Finance Minister i Frcdencton E. J. Benson, told the Commons Chicago it would lie regrettable if many taxpayers who have managed without a tax consultant in the past start paying for tax advice because they are afraid of the complexity of the new bill. The national revenue depart- ment, he said, will bp making a real effort to give explanatory material in layman's language on the measures within the bill. Tills woi'Jd eliminate the IIPPI of tax advice for all but the minority of taxpayers who now paid for it. "I hope the general body of taxpayers does not take the bait of the many advertisements that, are appearing on a scare basis inviting them to spend money on a bill that IKLS not passed Parliament." wpstcrlips tnihiy, Suhiiy ox- cpjit fin1 hrir-f plniiiiy periods 22 ihis nuiming. l.nws Tlmrsihiv: .Mainly sunny.
