Assessors merely doing their job OTTAWA (CP) Complaints that some eager-beaver tax assessors harass taxpayers unnecessarily brought a federal comment Friday that assessors are merely doing their job as politely as they can. Montreal accountant Campbell W. Leach, president of the Canadian Tax Foundation, told the Commons estimates committee that some assessors pay too much attention to petty details, annoying and irritating taxpayers by loading them with trivial questions about petty expenses. What the revenue department needed, he said, was a better public relations approach, to meet the taxpayer half-way in resolving petty differences, particularly when they (the assessors) know they are dealing with a sincere taxpayer. He agreed with Ernest Broome (PC Vancouver South) that the situation was somewhat like the traffic officer trying to get promoted by handing out as many traffic tickets as hd can. Later, when asked for his comment, J. Gear McEntyre, deputy revenue minister for taxation, Watch For IReginas Biggest, Jewellery Sale In Years Fabulous Bargains! Coming at Diamond Jewellery Store Broad St. at S. Railway said in an interview that the governments 2,400 assessors are much aware of the public relations job they act as politely as they can." It was true, he added, that the department did get some complaints that assessors' questions were annoying, but tills annoyance usually stemmed from fears that the questions would lead to higher tax assessments. "The assessor had to be an eager-beaver. He's got to get out and check returns and he must ask questions to get at the basis of statements made." Committee discussion on the assessors attitude followed tax foundation comment on the controversial issue of whether Canada should have a canital gains tax, such as that which exists in tiie United States. Stuart Thom, tax foundation vice-president, said no one has yet come up with a definition of a capital gains which would be universally acceptable. In fact the U.S. capital gains tax had led to much litigation. The same thing would happen in Canada if such a tax was imposed here.

BLOORE This weekend is the final display period of the exhibition German Graphic Art of the 20th century" in the Norman Mackenzie Art Gallery, Regina OolUega, The 108 works in this exhibition were chosen by German museum directors from public German collections. The show was opened In Regina by Dr. Ewaid Lanwer, consul for the Federal Republic of Germany, Winmpeg, and the works are being circulated throughout Canada by the National Gallery of Canada. It would be almost Impossible to imagine a finer national display from the artistic standpoint than this one. Frequently national exhibitions tend to lack artistic integrity: as if the lowest common denomination In Ihe foreign audience must be satisfied. This particular exhibition contains five examples by such important 20th century artists as Paul Klee, E. L. Kircher, Kathe Kollwitz, Franz Marc, Ernst Barlach, Wassily Kandinsky and Max Beckmann. Representative example by the major contributors to both the Bountiful snowfall ASSINIBOIA (Special) A $1,000,000 fall. That is what farmers are calling the eight-inch snowfall that blanketed the Assinl-boia region as well as other parts of Southern Saskatchewan Thursday and Friday. Business in As-simboia was lively Thursday during the fall. Farmers who were worried because of the and land, were wearing broad smiles. Members of town council who were worrying of the water supply were also pleased with the bountiful snowfall. At Weyburn, snowfall measured 3.6 inches and official precipitation was .36 Inches. District stockmen take lop honors MELVILLE (Staff) Many of the honors at the recent Saskatchewan show and sale held in Saskatoon were taken by Rhys Williams and Son of this district. The Williams entries took four firsts, five seconds and a number of other prizes; and one female 'was grand champion of the show. Their five bulls found a good, steady trade and were all purchased by Saskatchewan buyers. The Williams slock also did well at the Regina show and sale in March when their two-year-old bull placed first in its class and was reserve senior champion of the show.

It Is a large display distributed throughout several galleries; it Includes woodcuts, lithographs, etchings and silkscreens. Many are rich in color, others make powerful humanistic statements in black and white. The era of Hitler is not represented. There is an absolute break in the exhibition between 1933 and 1945. During the Nazi period, those artists who wanted to continue their modem style were not only forbidden to exhibit but were actually prohibited from continuing their work. Since the last war, those who survived have continued to add with the return of intellectual freedom to the German tradition; and new and younger meu have appeared to contribute to the ever developing art of our century. Two new exhibitions will also be on view thus weekend in the art gallery. The one includes works bv Gecrge Swinton of Winnipeg. This particular exhibition is because of its size, split between the Regina Public Library which was instrumental In bringing the show to Regina, and the Norman Mackenzie Art Gallery. George Swinton is a well known Canadian painter, teacher, lecturer and collector of Eskimo carvings. He seems - to be going through a period of conflict, being unable to resolve in his works, what he must feel is a serious dichotomy between almost traditional, representational and immediately understandable themes and the positive advances of the contemporary abstract expressionists theories and techniques. This Sunday evening, members of the Art Gallery Society will have an opportunity to preview the 10th Annual Saskatchewan Arts Board exhibition. The Gallery Society will then be holding their spring meeting and election of new officers. The Saskatchewan Arts Board exhibition will be officially opened in Regina at 8.15 p.m. on Thursday, April 30. Thq paintings and sculptures were previously shown In Saskatoon, during March. dm wQjd qtragp rtirr OTiD: c ex.- 1 . . ?

Therefore, the farmer doesnt like to see them suffer at the slaughterhouse. There arises a very real attachment" said a brief read by H. H. Hannam, president of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, before the Commons agriculture committee. A "feeling of comradeship develops" said a brief from the Interprovincial Farm Union Council. The committee is nearing the end of hearings on whether control of humane slaughter of animals should best be handled by legislation under the Criminal Code or under the agriculture de partment. Todays briefs backed the justice department's view that the agriculture department seems the best way.
