Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November 30, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 39 SMALL-HEADED SOLDIERS WOULD SAVE OTTAWA (CP) If the Canadian Forces can find sma'll headed recruits it could save taxpayers some The auditor general's report tells of the defence department ordering winter fur caps at a cost of But after had been accepted it was discovered they were a full two sizes too small. It seems these hats have ear flaps that can be turned inside when not required. But the internal measurements were made with the flaps down. So when the caps arrived, with flaps in place, they wouldn't fit. The auditor general said that in order to meet re- quirements, a further larger caps had to be ordered at a cost of Natural resources battle warming up President's night life raises French eyebrows Try Bifori You Buy UP TO 30-DAY TRIAL ON YOUR DOCTOR'S RECOMMENDATION MAI CO SMITH-JONES (HEARING AID SERVICE] RIPLEY OPTICAL 6183rdAve. S. 321-5447 Robot tank Robot tank, developed by the nuclear research centre at Karlsruhe, West Germany, is remote con- trolled and designed to enter radioactive areas to re- move sources of contamination.

Members of Parliament earn annual salaries of and receive tax free expense allowances. Senators receive an salary and in expense money. PARIS (Reuter) Presi- dent Valery Giscard cTEstaing, whose reported night-time absences from the Palace have raised eyebrows here in recent days, received a blunt reminder from the Gaullist party newsletter La Nation yester- day that the presidency is not a part-time job. But French public opinion, as reflected in the news media, generally took a light- hearted attitude to published reports that the president fre- quently goes out at night and that his staff often does not know where to find him. There appears no sign so far of a major political scandal over a suggestion in the in- fluential newspaper Le Monde on Tuesday that d'Estaing's private life is interfering with his leadership of the country. The Le Monde report said the president occasionally drives off alone in his car at. night, leaving a sealed envelope telling where he can be reached in an emergency. His security staff are fearful he might be involved in an ac- cident or be the victim of a crime, the newspaper said. But the weekly magazine Paris-Match reported yester- day that, contrary to what had been written previously, a car of security men follows the president wherever he goes. La Nation said: "Now that he is we helped him to get must remind him that being president is not a nine-to-five job." The Elysee Palace said it would not comment on the ru- mors and gossip about the president's private life, which now have been alluded to in several French newspapers. Sources close to the presidential palace said d'Estaing works fast and tirelessly all day and needs to relax in the evenings and dur- ing weekends. Auto tax under study OTTAWA (CP) Budget proposals affecting taxes on cars and trucks are being studied and more details will be provided soon on removal of a sales tax on large trucks and implementation of a tax on high-energy-consuming cars, Finance Minister John Turner said yesterday in the Commons. Robert McKinley (PC Huron Middlesex) asked if the in the Nov. 18 apply to cars ordered but not delivered before it takes effect. OTTAWA (CP) The fed- eral-provincial argument about control over natural resources will get its first full, face-to-face airing next week when resources ministers meet here about mineral policy. Federal energy Minister Donald Macdonald also has asked Alberta Mines Minister William Dickie to a separate session to discuss Ottawa's proposals for reducing oil ex- ports next year. The full meeting Dec. 6, an- nounced yesterday by Mr. Macdonald and co-chair- man Edison Stairs, New Brunswick resources minister, will constitute a preliminary skirmish about competing tax claims on re- sources by Ottawa and the provinces. The federal and provincial finance ministers meet to dis- cuss the subject Dec. 9-10 and the first ministers will confer on the matter in the new year. The minerals-policy meeting, although an annual event planned for weeks, is expected to discuss the renew- ed argument over resources taxation, says a spokesman for Mr. Macdonald. The tax argument was re- kindled by the Nov. 18 federal budget, which included a over the protests of Drapeau loses his majority MONTREAL (CP) Mayor Jean Drapeau yester- day lost his assured two-thirds majority of the city council required to approve the an- nual budget, other municipal spending and bylaws as one of eight judicial recounts stemming from the Nov.10 civic election gave the Montreal Citizen's Movement (MCM) another seat. The mayor's Civic Party now holds 36 of the 55 city council seats, while the MCM has 18. Alberta and disallow provincial royalties as a tax- deductible expense when calculating federal income tax on oil companies. The two main oil-producing provinces say Ottawa thus is invading provincial jurisdic- tion over natural resources. They contend other provinces should support them on the legal principle if not the sub- stance of the dispute. The Macdonald-Dickie meeting will deal with Ot- tawa's policy proposal of one week ago to eliminate oil ex- ports to the United States by 1982, in stages beginning next year.
