property By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor TABER Kenneth L Cutts of Winnipeg, president of the Fort Gary Trust Company, sais here Friday night "the man or woman who has the most security now is the man or woman who has the most adaptability Speaking to 140 people at the annual banquet of the Taber Chamber of Commerce, Mr Cutts said "man has a whole new set of tools, new ways of living and new ways of thinking Businessmen have to bring new outlooks into their ways of doing business but "you can be a pragmatist and an idealist at the same time you need never lose the fine concepts in going forward If men live by the Golden Rule, he said, they will have the inner strength and faith needed to adapt to our fast- changing, stressful way of life TAX CUT "Go out into the darkness and put your hand in the hand of God, he said 'That shall be better than a light and safer than the known way These were the words of King George the Sixth, said Mr Cutts, noting he learned them many years ago In a fast moving speech that mixed inspirational quotations, humor and finan cial talk, Mr Cutts, 50, said Finance Minister John Turner should cut taxes and spending in his budget, to be

moving in the right direction Large tax cuts will give us more take-home pay and place the government and private sector in a better posi- tion in wage bargaining He also urged a limit to the growth of the civil service He said there is plenty of money on hand to pay welfare costs and aid senior citizens "Even if he cuts taxes drastically, Mr Turner already has more money than he planned to raise last March He predicted 1975 will be a period of mild recession or slow growth in the world and Canadian economies "The gross national product will remain stable Short-term and long-term interest rates will seek lower levels You will see prime interest rates drop within the next two or three weeks INTEREST RATES He looked to a prime interest rate of 8Vz per cent by the middle of next summer This will provide a great boost to the construction industry, he said "We are basically a young country richly endowed in natural resources, really just beginning to take our rightful place in the world economy He said in terms of real growth Canada can out- perform all nations, including Japan "While some economic in- dicators are slipping, housing starts for one, and while we have a slower economy, there is reason to believe we are reaching some stability On the other side of the ledger, the nation is approaching a year of bargaining with unions that will be the "heaviest collec- tive bargaining agenda in our history This turbulent militancy of unions will run parallel to a lowdown of the economy in 1975, he said AVERAGE WAGE "The average annual wage increase will exceed 15 to 20 per he said Food, housing and clothing are blowing hard into the inflation balloon but, "I have attempted in the best way I know how to establish that inflation will remain with us but is this necessarily bad9 Can we learn to live with inflation7 Should we be ad- justing our sights to higher in- comes, always maintaining that spread that will provide a high standard of living7" Those on
