Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE VtTHBRIDGE HtSAlD Tueiiloy, Otlobor 3, 1972 There are unusual things Ontario town will become city in area O O going on in the sun SWARTIIMORE, Pa. Uleu- ler) There arc some unusual tilings going on in the suti. It is an astronomer's deliyht. In recent weeks largo clus- ters ot sunspots have appeared on the surface of the sun, .send- ing enormous electromagnetic fields out into the solar system. These fields run smack into the earth's magnetic liclds pro- ducing a magnetic storm. The results are radio interference, spectacular displays of the Aur- ora Borealis, the notlien lights, anil even a warning that electric power may be threat- ened. What makes this unusual is the strength of these solar storms and the fact that the} Heads centres EDMONTON (CP) Lloyd Sutton of Calgary was elected Saturday as chairman of the Alberta Association of Canadian Native Friendship Centres. George Lee, chairman of lrn board of the Edmonton centre was elected nee-president Hugh Hamilton of Calgary am Paul Razcke of Pincher Creel treasurer.

Dr. Martin Pomerantz o[ (lie artol Observatory id the raiiklin Institute here, ex- lains that sunspot cycles run n 11-year patterns. TAUTED IN The sun began a cycle In 904, reached its apex in nd should hit its low point in wo or three years. It is un- isual to get large storms after Hie five-or six-year apex. But on Aug. 2, the gealcsl sun storm ever rccordet erupted on the surface of the sun. "This one was rcmarkablj potent; I would say it was a Po- merantz said. Three days later it happened again.

Twaits, chairman of Imperial Oil Ltd., without specifically mentioning NDP national leader David Lewis, has sent a letter to employees accusing Mr. Lewis of publicly besmirch- ing the company's good name. Mr. Twaits wrote that ho could not "let pass statements that imply, quite strongly, that we are tax evaders and are not paying a fair share of govern- ment revenues. The letter said, Imperial paid 58 per cent of net income be- fore taxes to the governine-1', i'i 1971, "a long, long way from the figure of )9 per cent In the current debate, has been quoted rate' as 'Imperial's tas Shown a copy of the letter, Mr. Lewis denied he had ac- cused Imperial and other "cor- porate welfare bums" of tax evasion. "My point Is precisely that they are able to get all that welfare because the tax in- vites them to take he said. Asked about the "besmirch- ing" of Imperial's good name, Mr. Lewis said: "Mr. Twaits is just too sensitive, and it's a sensitiveness born of the fear that the goodies which his com- pany now enjoys might be taken away as the people of Canada realize what is happen- ing." PAID OTHER TAXES Mr. Twaits said Imperial's payments to governments went far beyond income tax. In the company paid income taxes of million, million in other taxes, million for roy- alties and exploration rights and incurred future tax com- mitments of million. Mr. Lewis scoffed. Every tax- payer pays more than income tax, he and sales taxes for example. He said Mr. 'Avails' argu- ment was "full of sophistry which does not in any sense an- swer the point I have been making." Imperial's chairman said de- ferred taxes were not loopholes for companies, nor were they unique to business. Any Canadian who subscribes to pension or retirement sav- ings plans can deduct his pay merits when calculating income IX. "Eventually, when he starts lo receive a pension or a return rom a retired savings plan, the individual pays a tax on this; n the meantime, Ids taxes are deferred." ,EWIS SCOFFS In 1970, deductions for such jlans totalled billion, saic Mr. Twaits. Mr. Lewis dismissed comparison between these de- ductions and corporations' de- terring taxes. "The comparison Is so far fetched that only a person des perately in need of argumen would have grasped it." LQ. Of 145 And A Poor Talker?

Food and general stores had been practically emptied in a rush of panic buying. Closed shutters were the only outward signs of the strike, which affected groceries, bou- tiques, cafes, restaurants, movie theatres, gas stations and private businesses. Drug- gists were open only for urgent prescriptions. In Liege, doctors and dentists were answering only urgent calls.
