LETHBRIDQE HERALD-Wednttday, September Wage ceiling advocated in Sweden STOCKHOLM (Reuter) Two Swedish social reformers want to slap a ceiling on na- tional salaries with any ex- cess earning being funnelled off to the developing nations. The idea of a wage ceiling, even as high as a suggested annual is unlikely to appeal to traditionalists here. But the fact that the subject is aired in publications such as the consumer magazine Vi (We) and the business weekly Veckans Affaerer is a meas- ure of the constant debate about life and work styles which goes on in this ex- 3S BUSINESS PRODUCTS 233 31 Street North Phone 327-7917 P.O.

Swedish economist Gunnar Adler-Karlsson, professor of social science at Denmark's Roskilde University, would put the top limit in Sweden somewhere between and Berit Rollen, 38-year-old chief editor of Vi and for- merly private secretary to So- cial Democrat Prime Minister Olof Palme, would set the limit lower, at The first reaction by many people might be that they would gladly settle for such a salary. But in Sweden, where meat, beer and movie seats cost twice as much as in Brit- ain, for example, and taxes are among the highest in the world, these salaries are not exceptionally high. Still, the Swedes had the honor for a short time recent- ly of being the world's richest the dollar dropped to an unprecedented 4.10 kroner, making the gross national product per head in Sweden The dollar has recovered since, but Swedes are near the top of the tree. With every Swedish family aiming for a comfortable apartment, a car and a sum- mer cottage or boat, it may be time for them to consider ex- actly where the heading, said Ad- ler-Karlsson.

Instead, the Swedish profes- sor advocates a minimum standard for all in the world: Guaranteed adequate nour- ishment, pure water, health services and a simple dwell- on the other end of the scale, to pay for it, a "maxi-salary." "It is at least as important that a Swedish family ab- stains from a second car as that an Indian family abstains from its fourth he said. Mrs. Rollen, among the most ardent of Sweden's polit- ically activist women, says in Vi: "To put a stop to the rich countries' over-development is at least as important as stopping population growth in the world. This clearly means pitting a brake on your and my pay rises." The concept of continued pay increases as the only way of making headway is already strongly questioned here. With a big pay rise often meaning a higher lax bracket which cancels out the gain, many professional men prefer to take extra time off instead of money.

O lymp ic v illage cost skyrockets MONTREAL (CP) The cost of the village to house athletes during the 1976 Summer Games will be million, million more than expected, a spokesman for the consortium respon- sible for construction says. Joseph Za'ppia. president of Terraces Zarolega Inc., said cost projections rose as architects finished plans. Construction is ex- pected to begin within a week. Mr. Zappia announced last week that financing of the project had been obtained following a month of negotiations with po- tential backers in the private sector. Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) refused to lend money for the project because it did not fit its programs aimed at increasing low-and medium-cost housing. Mr. Zappia refused to give details of the loan but said CMHC was expected to endorse it. The federal lending agency said it would endorse a loan if the consortium found acceptable backers. The city will have free use of the village to house ath- letes and Games organizers. Developers, with a 64-year lease on the land, will convert the 922-unit structure into condominiums after the games, selling them for to The project is scheduled for completion in May, 1976. Fishing ban hearing set BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) A pre-trial hearing has been set for Oct. 7 in the continuing dis- pute between a Billings fisherman and the Crow In- dian Tribe. The latest chapter in the controversy came recently when U.S. District Judge James Battin ruled in Billings that parts of the Bighorn River in southeastern Mon- tana belong to the tribe. The order stems from a controversy which began May 1 when the Crow Tribal coun- cil banned non-Indians from fishing in the river where it flows through the reservation. The court challenge was initiated by James Finch, a Billings area fisherman who defied the ban and was charg- ed with trespassing.
