Phone 4600* For a WANT AD Taker EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., FRIDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1.948 SEVCJN DRAFTEES .& VETERANS GUIDE By MAJOR THOMAS M. NIAL It used to 'be you could join the Army and forget your income tax. Well, just about, anyway. No enlisted man had to earmark a penny of his service pay for tne collector or Internal revenue. . Every officer got an automatic tl.500 deduction in addition to the other usual deductions. - • k Those green days are about over, and maybe for a long time. Starting Jan. 1 there will be' no special income tax exemptions for members of the armed forces.' On Jan. 1 the Array, Navy, Air Force and Marine • Corps will begin the tremendous bookkeeping job of \yithholding the proper amount' of 'earned income from the' serviceman's paycheck. The services, especially the Army tried hard to get the special exemptions extended for another year Naturally, they 'don't hurt recruitment. A bill was pushed through the House last summer which . would have done just that, but it bogged down in the Senate. I understand the services will press again in Jan •uary for the same bill, which would txtend the special income tux exemptions and deductions until Deo • SI, 1949. Regardless of whether they are recccssful. withholding machinery . foes into action New Year's Day. Query from A.

From D.W.A., Huntsville, Ala.: Is it possible to draw the readjustment allowance while you arc sick and unable to work?" With one exception, It definitely is j not. The exception Is this: - Say you are drawing the allowance of S20 a week and' then get sick, while, still on the active rolls: In that case you could go on drawing it until you have used up your entitlement or until you get well and get a job. From T. (j., Spokane, "Wash.: "Is it true that a veteran has to pay back to. the government all the education money he has received under the GI Bill?" . Definitely not true. Only time a veteran would have to pay back education money to the VA would be where the VA overpaid him 'or subsistence allowance. If that happens to you you will hear about it from VA. From L. B., Pittsburgh: "We. are a bunch of former Merchant 'Marine boys who saw plenty of action in the late war. Now we may be drafted. Is there any chance Congress might change the draft law, and would writing our congressmen help?" • Until Congress gets tack to business I can't guess whether there is a chance for changing the draft law. But writing a Congressman never hurt anyone and has been known to- influence votes. (You may write Major Nlal in care of this newspaper concerning your own service-connected problem.
