Claiming that her income as a trust beneficiary for the years 1933-38 was taxable as A income at 2 per cent rather than B income at 4 per cent, Mrs. Laura M. Bayley of Newbury, widow of Charles H. Bayley, appealed to the Vermont Supreme Court today for a revision of her taxes paid to the State tax department for the six-year period. . Mrs. Bayley was represented before the court by George L. Hunt of Montpelier and George S. Fuller, Boston attorney. Her application for revision was opposed by Commissioner of Taxes Erwin M. Harvey and Attorney General Lawrence C. Jones. Chancery Order The State contends that Mrs. Bayley's income as a trust beneficiary is taxable at four per cent because the trust has no business income, only income from stocks, bonds and other interest bearing securities. A pro forma decree in favor of the State was entered in Washington county court of chancery before appeal to the Supreme Court was taken. According to the agreed statement of facts in the case, if Mrs. Bayley's income from the trusts is taxable as Class A income at two per cent, the total amount of tax illegally assessed for five of the years 1933-37 would be $3,940.40 Wed 72 Years III I ," ' I?

By taking the rocks from their land, farmers prevent the soil food from getting back into the land, Mrs. Densmore believes.
