JUST CAU 327-0240 OR 327-297 LOTUS Across From The CPR Depot [delegation met with all politi- cal parties because it is feared i the application of some of the j proposed reforms could place I the future of farmers and ranchers in jeopardy. Under the proposed reforms, Mr. Guichon said, when a farm passes from father to son there would be a "deemed" realiza- tion of capital gain. He said there would not be an actual gain and because cash would not be available the farm would have to be sold to pay the tax. He said he felt there was to be an amendment recommend- ed that would see the tax for this transfer payable over time from the income generated by the farm. Under the proposals, he said the tax structure would have increased the difficulty of transferring the farm from father to son. The CCA also called for the proposed capital gains tax to be abated by the amount of sue-' cession duties the provinces in- tend to apply to all eattle. i Mr. Guichon said the applica- j iion of provincial succession i duties and the federal capital j gains tax would actually be i double taxation. I The delegates to Ottawa pointed out to government that the elimination of the idea of a basic herd, called for in the re- forms, would damage the farm economy. HUMIDIFIERS C A SHEET METAL LTD.' 1709 2nd Ave. S. 328-5973 Smoke only City firemen were called out twice Friday on false alarms and while a third call was real enough, they couldn't find the source of the smoke. About noon Friday a call was received reporting heavy smoke at the Holiday Village on Mayor Magrath Drive. This morning's official fire report read: Unable to locate! source or cause of smoke still under investigation. Holiday Village developer, Art Batty said this morning, "it wasn't much." An intercom transformer had burned out causing the smoke temporarily. No other damage resulted. The basic herd is the "farm factory" from which income is generated through calves. CCA pointed out that this breeding herd is a capital as- set, that depreciation should be allowed, that sales from this herd be capital sales and that taxes should come from only the sales from that herd. The clause to eliminate the basic herd was put aside for further study by government. CCA also called for the ac- ceptance of the farm appraisal by an accredited appraiser or at least have the onus of proof put on the taxing authority. The association told govern- ment the farm home is an inte- gral part of the farm business and the annual write-off should apply whether the farm is in- dividually-owned or is incor- porated as a family business. By LARRY BENNETT Staff Writer A stranger in a strange land a 22-year-old American army deserter has come to Lethbridge to start a new life. A former army corporal and j veteran of the Viet Nam War, he dropped out of the ser- vice because, "1 was sick of all of the bloodshed, killing and maiming." He wishes to remain anony- mous because he has not yet a landed immigrant. He is in Canada illegally, and therefore unable to work. "I was in Viet Nam for a year, stationed at Phu Bai. I saw too many homeless chil- dren and too many women.and children senselessly murder- he said. "1 didn't want to continue my existence as a war-machine ro- bot. The army is designed to preclude free thought on the part of its members, and I was always in trouble because I would think, and do things on my own "I want to live, work and raise a family in Canada, but above all I wart to work to prevent Canada from going the same direction as the United Slates." His decision to come to Can- ada resulted from discussions with other army personnel who were planning to desert. They already had a communications line with friends in Canada. "When I deserted 1 was aware that there were other draft objectors in Canada, and I was certain at the time it was the best thing 1 could do to defeat the United States war- machhie." "By leaving t h e country I would be one less person avail- able to fulfil the war-machine effort the more people wlu leave the country the weaker the machine will he said. He came to Canada by hitch- hiking to Detroit from his base in the southern Unfed Slates. From Detroit some friends drove him across the border to Windsor, Ontario. He has been in Canada since April. He hitch-hiked to Vancouver from Windsor In seven days. "To get money to live on in Vancouver I started lo rnako j hand-carved smoking pipes and j sold them at a local head shop, 'The owner of a Vancouver house-renovating firm also offered me a job as wion as I became a landed immigrant. I contacted t h c American War Objector' Commillec in; Vancouver and applied for my landed .status. "f was able to fulfil all of the Canadian requirements in a month, but I was unable to get any co-operation from any one in the United he said. The Vancouver Canadian Im- migration office required cha- racter references, credit ref- erences and job references from the U.S. but "after threo months of correspondence with no reply from llKre, I left Vancouver.'1 He said he will still endeavor lo become a landed immigrant, because he wants to make Can- ada ard Lethbridge his new home. ''I feel like I have declared war, personally, against the United States. Canada provides me with an atmosphere where I can be free and think for my- Sunny periods on Sunday The Alberta Motor Associa- tion reported this morning that freezing rain whbh fell throughout southern Alberta last night apparently had no adverse effect on driving con- ditions.
