Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE IEIHBRIDGE HERAID Wcdnejday, September I, 1971- ATTEMPT TAKEOVER Premier Joseph Smallwood, of Newfoundland, Monday announced his government has asked the Bowaler Paper Corp. Ltd. in London, for an oplion to purchase the company's giant mill at Corner Brook, Nfld. Mrs. Lougheed good co-ordinator CALGARY (CP) Besides being uife and mother, Mrs. Peter LougKeed is becoming a pretty good co-ordinator and campaigner on the side. Ever since her husband be- came leader of the Alberta Pro- gressive Conservative Party six years ago, Jeanne has had a lot of practice at Lhe latter two jobs. It doesn't mec.n she had been less attentive with the other tasks; it just means she co-or- dinates more and works harder. But the hectic pace has not made a visible mark; her ap- pearance and manner do not reflect her 40 years. Her clothes, some of which she designs herself, are those of Lhe current generation as is her natural makeup and bouncy curls which make her stand out in any crowd. Only the eldest of their four children, Steve, 16, took an ac- tive part in the campaign. The others, Andrea, 12, Pamela, 10, and Joey, 5, were less interest- ed but even Lhe youngest knew his political affiliation when he turned down a Social Credit button with "I'm Jcey Lough- eed." CAMROSE NATIVE Mrs. Lougheecl, a native of Camrpse, Alia., went door-to- door in her husband's constitu- ency of Calgary West and in- troduced herself between to times. _ They did not vote in that rid- ing the Lougheed's live in a house purchased 14 years ago in Calgary Elbow. At the time Peter Loughecd was an artic- ling lawyer making S125 a week and Lhey could scarcely afford the home. But Jeanne has a knack for decorating and it is reflected in the older rooms of the home and Ihe Lwo storey sddition she designed and closely watched take shape. The house looks b'ke four chil- dren, three dogs, and two busy adulls live in it. There is a full cf toys, a driveway wilh bicycles and a little cozy hide- away upstairs. She works at her job with the- same fervor her husband uses on his. She is constantly planning ahead to work on all the pos- sible schedules. During election day, Jeanne tc'ok lime after making Lhe fam- ily breakfast to plan Andrea's 12th birthday today, ready the children for" dinner away "from the house, go shopping at neigh- borhood stores where she is kr.owr] by nearly everyone then back home to prepare for din- ner. The night before, she fielded telephone calls unlil midnight and that evening she accom- panied her husband to a vic- tory speech at Conservative headquarters then on the plane lo Edmonton for another cele- bration of triumph. Jeanne took her final years of high school in Edmonton then a bachelor of arts degree with studies in German, Latin and Psychology. She has an interest in music, voice and piano, and her husband also suggest- ed shortly after their marriage a typing course might be wise. "I soon knew Mhv in Bos- tor, (where Peter "attended the Harvard law school) he had all these term papers lo type." Dentists warned TORONTO (CP) The Cana- dian Dental Association has warned dentists that careless handling of mercury used in teeth fillings can expose them and their employees to mercury poisoning and also can contami- nate the environment. In an editorial, the association journal reminds dentists they arc major consumers of mer- ciuy. Each practising dentist uses about 2H pounds of the metal a year. Mercury in filling materials "does not pose a serious hazard lo the patient, who is subjected to only brief periods of exposure but dentists and their employee should be constantly alert to Lhe risk of long-term the journal says. They should also guard against improper disposal of waste filling material and "con- sequent contamination of Ihe en- vironment." The journal says dentists' of- fices can become contaminated with mercury vapor during the removal of old dental fillings with high-speed drills. Fine par- ticles of mercury may Lhen be inhaled.

Tax reforms debate may be long and loiid liy JAJ1KS NKI.SO.V OTTAWA 'CP! Debute on Finance Mininer K. J. Benson's proposed lax reforms will likely seek to reconcile economic phi- losophy with hard economic facts when Parliament resumes next week. Mr. Bc'.'.t'On, who wants his general revision of the Income Tax Act to have No. 1 priority in the Cununons unlil it is passed, faces a divided opposi- tion, and the division could lead to protracted debate Some sources talk of Ihe de- bate running al leasL a month and possibly two. The main Progressive Con- servative opposition will try Lo narrow the broad subject of tax- law revision down lo Lhe issue of what the government should do immediately lo relieve unem- ployment and arrest the rise of living costs. The New Democratic. Party, on the other hand, is highly crit- ical of Uie proposed lax Law for straying too far from the princi- ples of lax equity and the buck- is-n-buck theory which was back nf original proposals for lax re- form. Social Credit members are lo advocate adoption of their monetary ideals, whero they can within the rules of sticking lo tax matters. TEW CHANGE EXPECTED But in Ihe end, the 15) govern- ment Liberals, a majority in the 264-teat Commons, arc expected lo carry Ihe lax bill substan- tially as it was introduced by Mi1. Benson with his June IB budget A Conservative source con- firmed that his parly finds Ihe tax law change Mr. Benson in- troduccd much more acceptable than the more complex propos- als in the 1909 white paper. However, Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield has recently renewed with more vigor the Conservative complaint that Mr Benson and Prime Minister Trudeau are mismanaging the economy The Conservatives will insist on more explicit mea- sures to create jobs and stop in- flation before they let 'he tax bill go through. An NDP source said his parly will barken back Lo the royal commission on taxation headed by the lale Kenneth Carter Toronto tax consultant. Jt recommended sweeping reform, with full taxation of capital gauis, more generous individual exemptions, and scaling down retail sales taxes. The licnson while paper did not go far enough along the Carter lines, and the finance minister's bill now proposes a good deal less, in the NDP view. Mr. Benson's bill proposes raising basic exemptions, scal-ii.g down upper-bracket Lax rates though not as far as the white paper and Nixon's new economic policy and its effects on Canada, particularly the new 10-per-cent additional import duty. Hut the government is likely to give highest priority in Commons debating time to the tax bill, since it hopes to put the new lax plan into effect Jan. 1. The revenue department cannot complete its work on new lax forms and rules unlil the Commons, and the Senate, have passed the bill in detail. Mr. Benson has promised some technical amendments to the bill arising out of discussions during Ihe summer recess wilh tax lawyers and accountants. Erii these are not make any fundamental change in the plan. International meetings wil ake Mr. Benson nway from the house at least livice during the first month of debate. He is to be chairman of a conference ol finance ministers of the 10 bad-Ing Western industrial nations in London, 15 and 10, and will head the Canadian delega-lion to the annual mccling ol the tltJ-member International Monetary Fund in Washington, opening Kept. 27.
