The assistant professor of medicine and nephrology re- search at the university said two other requirements for suc- cess are rapid and accurate typing of recipient and donor tissue and the obtaining and preservation of organs in prep- aration for implanting. He told a symposium on kid- ney and urinary tract disease that potent immuno-suppressive drugs employed against rejec- tion can cause serious side ef- fects in some patients. By hampering the body's for- eign matter rejection system so it will tolerate UK implant- ed kiclr.ey, such medications can make the patient suscept- ible to infection by bacteria, fungi or viruses. said medical research SOVIET LEADER IN FRANCE Leonid I.

Apple juice concentrate duty imposed OTTAWA (CP) A special federal duty has been imposed following a preliminary finding that apple juice concentrate from Austria, Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary and Switzer- land has been dumpsd on the Canadian market. An anti-dumping t r b u n a 1 will hold a public hearing here opening Thursday, Nov. 25, to hear representations on the question. The national revenue depart- ment initiated a preliminary investigation last June after complaints that the foreign apple juice concentrates were being dumped in Canda below the fair market value.

(CP) The Nov. 8 federal byelection in Assmiboia will be a three- way race between the candi- dates who have been campaign- ing heavily for the last several weeks. Official nominations closed with no additions to the field already nominated by the three major political forces in the area. The riding was made vacant earlier this year by the death of former Liberal member of parliament, A. B. (Ab) Doug- las. Those nominated were Jim Hooker of the Liberals, Law- rence Watson of the Progres- sive Conservatives, and Bill Knight of the New Democratic OTTAWA (CP) Two un- married persons living as man and wife simply aren't going to get the same tax break they would if married. Neither are the paramour and his concubine, the legal words to- a couple who are wed, but not to one another, and living together. Furthermore, the new Income Tax Act would continue to pen- alize the parents of children of such unions compared to other parents. "The option of matrimony is open to most said Pat Mahoney (Calgary parliamentary secretary to Fi- nance Minister Benson, in a brief Commons scuffle on the morality of tax law. Robert McCleave (PC-Hali- fax-East Hants) and Mark Rose Valley West) asked why unwed couples and their children will continue to suffer under the act, even though living as a family. Mr. Mahoney said the prob- lem basically is an administra- tive one. BUT WILL IT LAST? "How do you prove there is a common-law relationship? he asked. "Is it transitory? Will it last a day, a week, a Mr. McCleave had blamed the government for excluding "the voiceless ones, those involved in common-law marriages" from the same range of tax exemp- tions as enjoyed by married couples. It might sour.d strange that a Conservative would stand up for those living outside the sanctity of marriage, the Halifax lawyer said. "But somebody has to speak for them, somebody has to get an answer." The Income Tax Act wasn't a statement of morality, he said. Anyone who thought it was should watch tax collectors as- sessing the income of prosti- tutes. "I think it is unjust that com- mon-law couples aren't ac- corded the same exemptions as married couples." Mr. Rose said the law should be morally neutral on the sub- ject of illegitimate children. Yet current law and the proposed legislation would penalize a par- ent making court-ordered pay- ments for such a child's sup- port, Mr. Mahoney responded that parents of illegitimate children ire able to exempt all or part of ;hcir support payments from :ax under present law. Mr. McCleave quoted from a .ax guide prepared by account- common-law wife is not considered a spouse and no marital exemption may be claimed en her account. How- ever if the taxpayer supports a child in a self-contained domes- jc establishment and the com- mon-law wife acts as a house- keeper, he could claim a exemption on account of ihc child.
