Premier Bennett inviting lawbreaking alleges Bader in court appearance VANCOUVR (CP) David Bader of North Vancouver, B.C., tried without success here to lay a charge o[ con- spiracy against Premier W.

Agree to postpone N-test WASHINGTON (AP) Se- nate and House ol Kepresenta- tives conferees agreed today to a bill provision that would post- pone a scheduled five-megaton nuclear warhead underground explosion in Alaska unless Pres- ident Nixon gave his direct ap- proval. In approving a compromise public works appropriation bill, the conferees accepted a Senate provision to forbid the explosion before May 31, 1972, "unless the President gives his direct ap- proval." The U.S. Atomic Energy Com- mission has planned the Canni- kin experiment in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska lor some time next month. The experiment is designed to test the warhead of the Spartan missile, a part of the Safeguard anti-ballistic mis- sile system. Some senators had said tire blast, a mile under ground and equivalent to five million tons of TNT at Amchitka Island, might touch off earthquakes and zincs and newspapers carrying liquor and tobacco ads pending a challege of the province's ad-ban legislation now before Lhe courts. Asked by city prosecutor Stewart McMorran to present proof of conspiracy, Mr. Bader referred to published newspa- per reports. "Thai's not evidence, that's said the prosecutor. "You can't lay charges against anyone on hearsay evidence and, of course, you need wit- nesses." "What must I do to lay the asked Bader. "Your first step is to get a notarized statement from the reporter who interviewed the premier and replied Mr. MeMoran. "Bring that statement back to this of- fice and we'll consider your position further." Mr. Bader said he would go [o Victoria to gather the needed information. Earlier this month, Mr. Ba- der laid charges of contraven- ing the legislation against offi- cials of the B.C.

Balance-of-payments surplus dips somewhat OTTAWA (CP) Canada had a balance-cf-payinenls surplus ol million in its international dealings in Lhe second quarter of this year, the smallest since the country storied bidding up unusually large surpluses more than a year ago, federal statis- tics show. The figure compares with a surplus of million hi the second quarter of last year, when Canada went on to amass a surplus for the year. With a surplus o[ million in the first quarter of 1971, Can- ada racked up a cumulative surplus of million in the first half of the year. It was million in the first half ol 1970. Detailed figures on the bal- ance-of-payments position a t mid-year are expected to be re- leased by Statistics Canada next week. However, figures com- piled by the statistics bureau for the country's gross national product report show: Exports of goods and services hit a record bi'liion In (he second quarter of 1S71. They had reached 55.55 bilion in the second quarter of 1970, but fell off later in the year. Imports of goods and services also climbed i n April, May and June this year, faster than exports and totalling billion compared with billion a year earlier. This meant that the surplus left to Canada in its merchan- dise and non-merchandise trade in Lhe second quarter of 1971 was million, reduced sharply from million in the same period of last year. But there also was a net in- flow of million in current transfers of funds into Canada during April, May and June this year, including inheritances and money brought into the country by immigranls, compared with an inflow of million of this kind of money in the same quarter last year. 15, 1971 THI KRAID 25 Helpful for income taxes Be generous to your wife WINNIPEG (CP) Husbands wanting to lake advantage of the new tax system coming into effect in 1972 should be gener- ous to their wives at Christmas and to their children early in the new year, says a tax expert. D. R. Huggett of Montreal told delegates to the annual meeting of the Canadian Insti- tute o[ Chartered Accountants a husband should give most of his investment portfolio to his wife before the end of 1971 so capi- tal gains DII the assets trans- ferred will be taxed at a lower rate provided the wife's in- come is less. Speaking or. a panel, Mr. Huggelt sadd the husband would have to pay tax on all capital gains realized by his wife on the assets if the transfer was made in 1972, but would get no deduction for capital losses aris- ing from the transferred assets. The chartered accountant said that aftc- 1071 transfers ol as- sets should be made to children ment attitude to the provision of retirement benefits on a tax deductible basis." Mr. Can- said "we may per- haps hope for a ir.ore relaxed attitude in the area of execu- tive pension plans which, in my opinion, L certainly desirable." and not to wives. "Strangely, no provisions have been inserted to deal with capi- tal gains realized by minor children with the result that any such gains remain taxable in the hands of minor children, even though Ihe income is lax- able in the hands of the trans- feror. "With gift taxes scheduled to be abolished on Jan. I, 1972, a marvelous opportunity arises to reduce Ihe impact of the capital gains tax." Another panelist, Michael Can- ol Toronto, was favorably disposed to the proposed treat- ment of pension plans and re- tirement saving plans under the new Income Tax Act.
