Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta October 20, 197! THI LITHIItlDOl HIKAID 2t Legal action halted EDMONTON (CP) Legal action to recover in court costs from 13 Seba Beach tax- payers who lost a bid this sum- mer to stop construction of a high school at Evansburg has been postponed. Education Minister L. D. Hyndman said in a prepared release the County of Parkland and Yellowhead school division have agreed to postpone the legal action. Discussions would take place neyt month between representatives of the two school jurisdictions and the de- partment of education to work out an equitable court stetle- ment. Mr. Hyndman also said that tenders tor construction of the Evansburg high school have been approved. NEW PLAN The new school will serve students of Evansburg and the surrounding district, but not -from Niton or grades one to nine students at Seba Beach or Wildwood without the consent of their parents. High school students from the Seba Beach area, 55 miles west of here, will have the option of remain- ing at the Seba Beach high school. He said the school division and county have been urged to make continuous efforts to in- form parents and ratepayers in the area of existing and future plans for the new school's oper- ation. The school division has been asked to have the contractor hire local labor from the Seba Beach, Evansburg, Wildwood and Entwistle areas for the en- tire construction period, he said. Buffalo herd sliced EDMONTON (CP) Elk Is- land National Park's 186 sur- plus buffalo have found new homes ranging from British Columbia to Quebec. Elk Island is about 20 miles east of Edmonton. Park superintendent Don Macmillan said tenders were called this week and 30 bidders were involved in the nationally advertisied sale. The successful tenders on the seven blocks of buffalo totalled Alberta bidders took three blocks, British Columbia two and Ontario and Quebec, one each, he said. Those bidding on the blocks were primarily in- terested in forming specialty meat markets or exhibition herds. Mr. Macmillan said written instructions for properly main- taining the animals would hi supplied the successful bidders. The new owners would be askpd to submit annual reports on the state of the animals. Sale of the 186 buffalo reduc- ed the Elk Island herd to 800, tthe maxiumum tie area can support, he said. A total of about buffalo roam Wood Buffalo National park and sev- eral thousand more range throughout northwest Alberta. Here's what new tax cut means Farm crop subsidies to be hiked WASHINGTON (AP) The Nixon administration plans to boost farm crop subsidies next year by as much as billion in a new drive to curb production of corn and other livestock feed grains. Most of the increase will be used to pay farmers for taking more cropland from production. Direct subsidy payments based on grain raised on remaining acres also will be boosted. A record 1971 corn crop of 5.4 billion bushels, nearly one-third more than last year, is the main cause. The huge crop has led to depressed grain prices and lias helped dim hopes for a general Improvement in farm Now, the administration says, if feed planting next spring is not reduced sharply, the U.S. would be hearted for a new era of groin surplus and price diffi- culties. The agriculture department was lo introduce the new plan today. Basically, Uio administration is asking farmers to take per- haps 40 million acres or more from feed production next year, including corn, sorghums and barley. OTTAWA (CP) T- Last week's federal tax cut means a tax saving this year for single taxpayers earning a year. For a married man earning a year, with no children and no taxable Income earned by his wife, the reduction is For a' married man with two children and an annual in- come of a year, the cut is These figures were confirmed for The Canadian Press Monday by the finance department in the absence of new tax rate tables. The department said it does not intend at this stage to release sample tax levies by in- come classes as it usually does when a major change is made in tax rates. Finance Minister E. J. Benson last Thursday announced a three-per-cent federal tax re- duction. It applies from last July 1 to the so-called basic tax computed on personal incomes in accordance with existing graduated tax scales. It extends to Dec. 31, 1972. New tax tables will be issued for 1972. A single taxpayer with no de- pendents and an income of a year can claim stand- ard exemptions of and pay tax on The basic tax on that amount of taxable in- come is The tax cut of this year is three per cent of the basic tax for half the year 1971. However, this basic tax calcu- lation does not take into account other taxes that must be paid. These are the four-per-cent old- age recurity tax up to a maxi- mum of a year and the two-per-cent social development tax up to a maximum of a year. A three-per-cent surtax on basic income tax in excess of was lifted in Finance Min- ister Benson's June 18 budget, effective last July 1. To accom- plish this mid-year tax cut, the surtax is simply levied at a rate of 1.5 per cent for the whole year. The single tax- payer will therefore pay to taxes for 1971, in provinces which levy no more provincial income tax than a standard 23-per-cent abatement allowed by Ottawa. Only Nova Scotia, Ontario and British Col- umbia now apply a 28-per-cent provincial tax. All other prov- inces charge higher rates, up to 38 per cent in New Brunswick and 39 per cent to Manitoba. In the income class, it means a tax saving of for the single taxpayer with no dependents, for the married taxpayer with no children and for the mar- ried taxpayer with two depend- ents. For the stogie person who now pays a basic tax of the saving will be If married, he now pays and will save from that, if he has no depend- ent children. He will save on his regular tax bill of if he is married and supporting two children.
