Mr. Fulford:

Before this item passes, Mr. Chairman, I want to make one short observation. I wonder whether the minister noticed in last night's Ottawa Journal an advertisement published by the Progressive Conservative party of Canada. In case he missed it, I should like to point out that the advertisement is a facsimile of the short income tax form, 1952, but the facsimile is eclipsed by the large, bold words:

For a change be Conservative . . . not Liberal, with your own money!

Strangely enough, about the only part of the facsimile not overshadowed by the words just quoted is this:

Your old age security tax for 1953 and subsequent years is 2 per cent of taxable income . . .

And so on. I trust that this advertisement does not demonstrate the attitude of our Conservative friends toward social security generally: "For a change be Conservative, not Liberal, with your own money".

Mr. Fulford:

Mr. Chairman, others have called me an Indian, but I now have just cause to be called one. The reason I rise at this time is this. These Iroquois Indians recently travelled to the capital of the state of Vermont to plead a case before the legislators of that state, and asking for moneys which they felt were owing them for a period of well over a century and a half. They have sent other' missions down there and met with the same result, namely a decision which was not favourable to their claim. The reason I rise is this. I just wanted to explain to the minister that these Indians are a decent, Godfearing, energetic and hard-working group. They are one of the finest bands in Canada. Their village needs improvement. I was through it a few months ago. If they need money for further development I trust that, under this amendment to the act, it will be possible for them to have it made available.

Some years ago the Indians at the Caughnawaga reserve did me the great honour of initiating me into their tribe.

Mr. G. T. Fulford (Leeds):

I should like to direct a question to the Postmaster General. Does the Post Office Department contemplate issuing a special stamp or series of stamps commemorating the coronation of Her Most Gracious Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II?
