Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Federal treasury flush Rail talks OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment has come through the first half of its 1973-74 fiscal year flush with money, posting a million budget surplus for the April- September period. This is more than seven times the million surplus that showed on the government's ledgers for the comparable period a year ago. It reflects an apparent ef- fort to constrain federal spending programs, although the over-all level of spending is sharply higher in the current year, figures released Thursday by the finance department show. In the six months this year, all federal departments spent billion, while it took in through taxes, investments CAREERS TRAINEES A local firm of Chartered Accountants has openings for qualified Accountants and Junior Accountants.

By contrast, spending in the comparable period a year ear- lier was billion and budget revenue was billion. On a direct comparison basis, government spending in the latest period was more than 25 per cent ahead of the year-earlier total. The same trend is apparent in the figures released for September each year. In 1974, there was a budget surplus of million, up sharply from the surplus of million on spending in September, 1973. But on an aggregate basis, federal expenditures in September this year rose to billion from billion a year ago. Revenues this year gained to billion from billion in the comparable 1973 month. Taxpayers will not be sur- prised to learn that the biggest single income item for the government in the first half came from personal in- come tax receipts. Payroll deductions in the current year were up to billion from billion last year. Another billion of income tax was collected by other means, an increase from billion in the previous period. Business corporations paid in billion to the federal coffers, a rise from their contributions of billion in the first half last year. Oil sales provided two new sources of revenue for the government this year that it did not have in the 1972-73 year. chugging to head OTTAWA (CP) Railway contract talks affecting about workers will be at a critical stage in the next week to 10 days as union and com- pany negotiators tackle the delicate wage question. Until now, the Montreal- based negotiations have had a "good a union spokesman said Thursday. Talks began earlier than usual this year. But the parties are just starting now to talk about money, which in view of re- cent inflation is expected to be the key issue. "Within the next week or so, we should know if there is to be a quick settlement or a union source said. "Discussions are just coming to a head now." Should negotiations break down, the parties could ask the federal government for appointment of a mediator or a conciliation board or com- missioner. A settlement before the end of the year would mark the first time the parties have agreed to a contract before their current agreement has expired. The existing contract for the bulk of the workers ends Dec. 31. The current agreement was legislated by Parliament in September, 1973, and an ar- bitrator worked out details after the act was passed.
