Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THt IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wedimday, Ssptemlm 1971 Spenker-n-day in Ottawa New pattern by Liberals OTTAWA (CP) The Liberal government apparently is plan- nine to use one speaker a day in us bid to get its shopping new lai bill through the House of Commons as quickly as possi- ble. The spcakcr-a-day approach, stressing such attractive points as the dropping of a million Ca- nadians from the income tax rolls, appears to be the strategy the Liberals are adopting. For tlic rosl of the day, they seem content U> let opposition mem- bers do the talking about the many other facets of Ihe huge bill. Tliis pattern became dear in the Commons Tuesday, second day of full debate on the tax package. Colin Gibson (Hamillon-Went- worth) was the only Liberal speaker Tuesday. His message was ihat opposition MPg should slop their prognostications and pass the bill so iliat Canada could enter a new era with a reformed tax system. The only Liberal spcakei litonday, first full day of debate on tho massive bill, was Heve- nuo Minister Ifcrh Gray. He stressed tha government conten- tion tltat a million citizens would be cut from the tax rolls that 4.7 million would have their WEtCOME BACK Paul Trier, a resident of Venice Gardens, welcomes back Heclor the alligator with a marshmallow, Heclor was taken away by Game and Freshwater Fish Commission when lome residents complained.

Wigger sticks' served as only communication NEW YORK (AP) One rap on the wall: Walk. Two raps: Halt. Continuous bang- ing: Quiet down. Nightsticks slamming against the wall, says a felon released two weeks ago from Attica state prison, serve as communication between the aulhorities and the convicts. "The only form of commu- nication between the guards and the inmates is with what the guards call their 'nigger Albert Cruz, 29, who spent eight of 2 months on an armed robbery conviction at Attica, said Tuesday in an in- terview. Immediately after his re- lease from Attica, where a re- bellion ended brutally Mon- day. Cruz joined the Fortune Society, an organization for helping ex-convicts. "You may get an officer that comes home from Viet- nam, a young Cruz said. "He'll try to communi- cate with the inmates. "The next day you don't see this officer any more; he's up on the wall. And if that doesn't happen, the older guards start whispering in his ear, and he becomes a creep." Complaining that prisoners arc allowed only one shower a week, he said: "If you're going to rehabilitate anybody, you've got to teach him clean- to h e re- sponsible for." Convicts, Cruz said, "go out the same way they came in." A grammar school dropout, he said: "I'm not asking for a hotel, but some rehabilitation. If you commit a crime, I think you should pay for that while being reha- bilitated." The day at Attica began for Cruz with tlic ringing of an enormous bell nt a.m. With the 41 niher men in his the group living in one tier, Cruz said he would go lo the mess hail for n container of cnrcnl, milk and coffee. From the mess hull, Cni7 Mid, he nnd other pris- oners went lo tho yard for about five minutes, where they would be called to the shops in which they worked. Besides maintaining the prison, the convicts worked in metal or clothing shops. Cruz said he would be at his ma- chine in the sweltering metal shop by and back into the yard by After 45 minutes, he would head for the mess hall, where Cruz said, the food was "very badly prepared." He said even desserts were set out an hour before meals, adding: "When you come in the flics are all over your pie, or your cheese or you soup." "By five o'clock, you're al- ready in your cell, blocked in. Your day is complete." The ceil? "It's a bathroom, a bath- room with a bed in i.t That's exactly what it is. It's no big- ger than a bathroom." While 75 per cent of the prisoners at Attica are drug addicts, Cruz said, there is no program for them. As for homosexuality, he contended there is "plenty of it, and the administration pro- motes it." Cruz said he saw two homosexuals beat up a young convict in sight of a guard. taxes reduced and another Wo million would find tax levies varied less than one pel' cent. Outside of these speeches, the opposition has been doing all the swinging. The Liberals ap. parently are leaving it up to the public, as umpire, to decide whether they are making hits or whiffing. Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield said Tuesday his party is going to stay at bat as long as necessary to make the gov- ernment answer the real ques- tions facing Ihe Canadian peo- ple. That pitch that the bill would take many lower-income Cana- dians off the tax rolls would not work, he said, because the rest of the bill appeared to create more problems than it ever would solve. The bill provides for in- creased personal income tax ex- emptions and a generally lower rate of corporation income taxes. But it also would intro- duce, a capital gains tax, on stock market profits for exam- ple, and would include In indi- 'idual income for the first time such things as employer contri- butions to medical care insur- ance programs and payments from unemployment insurance. Mr. Stanfield said it is not enough for the government to propose reductions at the lower end of the income scale. Given the problems of the Canadian economy, it was obvious that there had to be tax reductions across the board to put tire country back on the road to eco- nomic growth. The bill would Increase basic income tax exemptions to from for unmarried tax- payers and to from, [or married taxpayers. EFFECT TEMPORARY Mr. Slanfield said this would have only a temporary effect. It was the first change in years ia the exemptions although the U THANT No predictions on the outcome of Iris China debate in the General Assembly at the United Nations. UN-Chinese issue too close to call cost of living had been climbing UP UNITED NATIONS (CP) The United States' effort to re- tain a seat for Nationalist China in the UN apparently has been effective enough to make the question of seating of the Peo- ple's Republic this year too close to call. Secretary General U Thant said at a news conference Tues- day that it is not possible at this stage to predict the outcome o! .he annual China debate in the General Assembly in mid-Octo- ber. Thant said that China "could" lecome a member this year, jut qualified his remarks, say- ng that some countries have told him that they will rot make the Nationalists requires the two-thirds majority. Meanwhile, Thant told his press conference that he defi- nitely will step down as secre- tary-general at the end of the year. The General Assembly now is faced with the difficulty of find- ing a successor acceptable to all. None of the potential candi- dates so far mentioned is ac- ceptable to all blocs. mind the eve ol without letup. Tliere should be immediate removal of the 11-per-cent fed- eral sales tax on building mate- rials, he suggested, plus a com- prehensive winter works pro- p-am to a 11 e v i a I e expected icavy winter unemployment. Ed Broadbent awa-Whitby) said the bill would do little for the 20 per cent of Canadians who collared only seven per cent of the country's otal income. Many of them went to bed hungry. But the bill would continue the long-established Liberal tra- dition of coddling those indus- ries extracting non-renewable Canadian resources and selling hem at "exorbitant profits" and refusing to hit the rich. The average working man in Canada, with the increased per- onal exemptions, might be better off, Mr. Broadbent said. Compare this with the man 'just eking out an existance" on a year, who would save S5.423 under the new basic exemptions. "Some reform that is." There was a "magnanimous" provision in the new bill for car- tenters, plumbers and other sal- aried workers to deduct up to a maximum a year for vork-related expenses. But cor- poration directors, advertising men and other professionals vould still be able to write off a night for entertainment, vhile enjoying themselves with heir clients, and do this many imes over during a tax year. This was "sheer hypocrisy." the assembly debate. The assembly this year will have at least two resolutions be- fore it, including the usual Al- banian one calling for Ihe expul- sion of the Nationalist Chinese and the seating of Peldng. _ Tiie Americans are attempt- ing through legal maneourvring to allow two Chinas to be scales, although Peking has made it clear it would not sit with the Nationalists. Thant re- confirmed that Monday, saying statements to that effect by Pe- king are a "firm statement of policy." The Americans are expected to submit another resolution later this week. Its contents have not been di- vulged but it is expected to be a moderaion of past American resolutions saying that a two- thirds majority is required for the passage of the Albanian move. Instead of that the Americans are expected to say that the section of the Albanian resolu- tion calling for the expulsion of Two meet death in truck mishap SQUAMJSH, B.C.

High school under siege STURGEON FALLS, Ont. here, North Bay's Ecole Secon- (CP) The only high school in this bilingual town of was under peaceful siege early today by about ISO Francophone students and adults. They were unlikely to have a serious ctfcct on today's classes. There was little protest when Uiey obeyed police orders to confine their sit-in to the school cafeteria. A meeting was scheduled in Toronto today with Kobert Welch, Ontario education minis- ter, in an attempt to iron out the dispute over the group's de- mand for separate French- and English-speaking secondary schools. One skirmish was reported Tuesday night and several town police moved into the two-storey building. However, police re- ported later that it was a minor misunderstanding. The group took over the school, tinder (he watchful eye of town police, at the close of Tuesday's classes. Conditions were orderly at the building, which accommodates about students, of whom about 1.200 are French-speaking. MOST ARE BILINGUAL Sturgeon Falls is approxi- mately 87 per cent French- speaking, though most residents are bilingual. It has been the focal point of a battle over lan- guage rights for the last two years and has been hit by three previous school strikes. The French-speaking students are angered by a Nipissing board of education decision to operate French- and English- language schools under one roof at the secondary school here. They want the board to turn over the high school to the French-language students and use J2.2 million, now earmarked for expansion of the present fa- cilities, to build a .separate Eng- lish-language high school. In Tuesday's protest, Jean St. Louis, one of the leaders, said the group was prepared to stay In the school indefinitely. The Grade 13 student said arrange- ments might be made to bring in food and other necessities. In sympathy with the protest daire Algonquin and Sudbury's Macdonald-Carler secondary held marches Tuesday as well. In Sudbury, school principal Paul Chauvin said only 50 of tho school's students attended. Most classes continued at North Bay. Shower away from famine- Copithorne BANFF (CP) A major challenge for the fanning com- munity is keeping nrime land for agricultural purposes, High- ways Minister Clarence Copi- thorne said Tuesday. Some good farm land was be- ing wasted and the difficulty could be overcome by better co- ordination between land use and development boards. Mr. Copithome, a rancher west of Calgary, told the an- nual meeting of the Western Canada Fertilizer Association bis concern stems from the fu- ture possibility of the world having insufficient food. "More and more the world just seems to be a shower away from famine." Concern over food shortages and the farmers' economic wel- fare ought to concern everyone. Mr. Copilhorne said econom- ic studies in the United States have shown that for every dol- lar produced in agriculture the result was in the economy. "Only tourism came close to matching agriculture in this way." LANDMAJIK FOR SALE KENOEA, Ont.
