Take Care With Tax Deductions Allowed $400 for Each Dependant Under 18 Years By ALEXANDER I{. GEORGE Wide World Features Writer WASHINGTON - Many income taxpayers make mistakes in taking credit for dependents. The head of a family is allowed a credit of ?400 for each dependent under 18 years of age or physically or mentally unable to support himself. . ' Thousands of income taxpayers who have supported jobless or destitute relatives have been under the impression they could make 5400 deduction in all such cases. For example, a wage earner or a business owner who during 1941 was the principal support of his unemployed 30-year-old brother and his fcO-year-old jobless son is not allowed dependency credits for either of them unless they were physically or mentally unable to support themselves under normal circumstances. ' If a taxpayer has Ihe status of head of family solely because of the existence of one or more dependents for whom he would otherwise be entitled to the credit of $400, the credit of $400 in respect of one of such dependents is not allowable. For example, a widower who is the head, of a family because he is maintaining a home for two dependent children under 18 is only allowed the credit of $400 for one such dependent. Tax officials say there is; also considerable confusion over head of family exemptions. In many families, two or more wage-earning members have sought the $1,500 head of family deduction. For federal income tax purposes there can be only one head of a family. In addition to being the chief financial support, the head of a family must be related by blood, marriage, or adoptions lo his dependents. And he must have a legal or moral obligation lo exercise family control over them and provide for their care. Thousands of wage earners neglect to lake the allowance of 10 per cent credit on earned income. On the other hand, many taxpayers make ridiculous deductions for admission taxes and automobile expenses. A classic case is that of a tax-payer with an income of $2,000 who claimed that he paid ?200 in movie admis- HELPS PREVENT PI) II1C From Developing VJr • • • At the first sneeze, sniffle or sign of nasal irritation, put a few drops of Vicks Va-tro-nol up each nostril.

There are at least seven such establishments in the space of four squares, and in them you will find as varied a cross section of humanity as Manhattan offers. Rabbis, soldiers, clerks, reporters and students arc everywhere- •*rmxsi l ig.U wau gl l .ilj e jeBar, te ej.itethatf are labeled "Fiction," "Sex," "History, 1 'Philosophy," "Religion," etc. While I was there a man came in and asked for a copy of Burr McIntosh's monthly, ? theatrical magazine that was famous at the turn of the century. He wanted the July issue for 190G, and got it. The price he paid was 50 cents. On its cover was a picture of Marie Tempest. Inside was a full "action" portrait of the great pianist Arthur Rubinstein. In those days Rubenstein was a gawky, frightened looking youth with a mop of Cabe, and other relatives and friends. Lt. McCabe recently completed training at Lowery Field, Denver, Col —O— Mrs. W. B. McHanej of Port Huron, Michigan is in the city for a visit with Mr. and Mrs. Max Cox. Mr. and Mrs. Bruce McRae departed Thursday for Waco, Texas to make their new home. • He Passed His Test With Flying Colors EAST LANSING, Mich.—m—j oc Gerard, who has broken Michigan State records for single season and three-year basketball spring, was really up in the air when the Spartans met Marquette at Milwaukee recently. Joe had to stay at home in order lo take his final test for a private pilot's license and then jumped into a transport plane and flew to Milwaukee just in time to start the game. The hurried trip didn't bother him; he got 14 points. Still Several Ways to Skin That Cat DETROIT—(/P)—Pvl. Thurman F. Connell, national ice skating champion in 1935, put in an application fcf the air corps at Camp Cusler but was turned down because he was overweight. Undismayed, Connell took a job shoveling coal in the reception center mess hall. A few clays later he had pared off enough poundage to be accepted for air corps training in California. A "jerry" is the British name for a Gorman airman. frizzly hair shooting out from his forehead. But, even then, he could play that piano. Most of these shops have magazines that go back a century. There were Harpers Weekly for 1850 and Leslie's Weekly of the same period. What do they cost? It depends on the issue; some are 40 cents, others are 52. These magazines are in many languages from all over the world, nnd they are conned constantly by art students and research workers, especially those interested in the history of early photography, or the early dance, or the early anthing. I gather from the proprietors who, for some reason are reticent souls who do not like to talk, that the magazine* ao where the real rnone is made, though their shelves are lined with thousands of second hand books, mostly trash. If you lake the time to go through these busily, and don't mind the dust, you can find, however, an interesting assortment of titles. For instance, for 49 cents, I found The Adventures of an African Slave Trader, published in 1856. There was for 19 cents, a dog-eared old copy of a military criticism and appreciation of the French .Zouaves by u sometime ,'capfai.n of infen try^- in • the 'Krherican -ijritfy <wlto liter- turned -mil to be the head of the Union Armies (for a while) during the Civil War. His name was McClellan. I found old French grammars and a copy of "Don Quixote" that was older than your granddaddy. "Where does this stuff come from'." I asked the sad-faced gentlernan wh<i managed this establishment. "From people's attics and cellars or libraries." Close to his desk where he coukl keep an eye on them were the "Sex'' books. As I wrote down several titles he turned svcrely upon in and cried, "Don't do that. You reporters only want to make fun. People wouldn't understand. It hurts the trade." Most of hese books have lurid titles, but that is about the only tiling in them that does not concern incomprehensible medical terms and dry statistics. They have been repubiished in bright, gaudy jackets for sales purposes—but those who buy them rarely find what they think they are going to find. President O'Neal in Message to Farmers of Hempstead "I wish to remind farmers that everything that we have secured in the way of stability and security for agriculture has been secured because we have been organized. The way to maintain what we have, and to meet successfully the hazards that go with the kind of effort that farmers are making in these days is to organize still more strongly. Congress was never more devoted to protecting the farmer's interests than it is today. We have the confidence of congress because we have always been fair and moderate in our demands. We have never asked for more than parity, which in effect means equality of opportunity with other groups. The parity concept is fundamentally sound, and the principle must be applied to other groups in order to maintain fair economic balance during this very great emergency and at the end of the war when we must face the problem of shifting our national economy back to a peacetime basis."
