THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1949 Strike in Italy Oil to Poor Start Communist-Inspired Walkout Fails to Get General Support B.v I'hlllp CUrUc ROME. Dec. l-w,_italv's communist labor leaders tried" to paralyze he nation today with a general strike but the demonstration appeared to be heading for a flop. The 24-hour strike, called In protest against [he , te ath o f two farmhands in a c)ash wi()l polit . t , vas backfiring i,, j ls ea ,., y holl| . s at (•kRoirie and several other Italian cities. Thousands of non-strikers Ignored the order by the Communist- ed General Confederation of Labor (COIL) and went to work in makeshift transportation. Many stores sere open In Rome. Only half of this city's transportation system was stalled by the strike. The strike, which began at 6 a.m. (Rome time), was scheduled to end at 6 a in. Friday. Rome radio said anti-Communist workers were manning special buses .and about a third of the main street cars Most Italians shrugged their shoulders ana grumbled about Inconvenience caused by what non- Comnnmist observers called a "purely political" dcoioustralion. Sidewalks in Rome were crowded with people walking to work. Factories in Bologna, in Italy's strongly Communist industrial north, were closed, however, as were printing plants and the city's trp/is- portatlon system. But Bologna's shops and offices were open and newspapers were being sold. Police Provide I'rolection In Milan, another northern Industrial city which has often been considered a communist .stronghold, stores and tiie commercial life of the city vere nearly normal. Transportation and all but essential pnb- licservices were generally idle, according to COIL'S directives. .. First reix)rt.s from Palermo, eap- *>f(al of Sicily, said the strike was only partly effective there. Trails- port was reported ahiKxst normal. Bank,*), stores and cafes were Open in Rome. Two years ago, when the Communist power was at its height, most shopowners did not dare roll up their shutters so ! early in a strike for fear of having their windows smashed by roving Red vigilantes. Today its was different. Strike- defying workers and shop owners got police protection. "Your right to work Is guaranteed," proclaimed Interior Minister Mario Scelba. The COIL had ordered its 5.000.000 members to stop work in all activities except the most vitnl public services. The nation's trains were .supposed to stop for two hours but, if effective, this would snarl traffic, for several hours* The strike ivas a crucial test of power for the big union. Opposing it were some 2.000.0DO mt-nbers of the anti-Communist labor unions who were told by their leaders to de/y the strike order. Murder Report Is Confirmed; Suspect is Held ST. JOSEPH, Mo.. Dec. 1. <AP>— A strange story of murder, once discounted n.s a lioux, became a reality night with the finding of a woman's battered body. Sheriff George Gibbons said 45- year-old Tommy King, a transient, led officers to the body of hi.s wife, Tngrid King, 38. The body, fully clothed nnd wrapped in a pink blanket, was found between a river road and a railroad tracks Coroner W. K, Maxwell said the woman was killed by four blows on the heart and apparently had been slain two weeks ago. Las t Nov. 21 Lea veil WOT tl t, K as. r police said they were told a murder had been committed. They said the tip came from King's relatives. Si. Joseph police were asked to join in the investigation. John W. Lard. St. Jospli chief of detectives, said the .story finally TVS.S discounted as a hoax when a ArVoman contacted him nnd said she was the person reportedly slain. Yesterday, however. King was taken into custody at Lea veil worth. Sheriff Gibbons reported King, after leading officers to the body, said repeatedly.

THi NATION TODAY— Govcrnmenf Prepares Special Booklet As Aid to Filing Income Tax Returns By James Marlow WASHINGTON, Dec. 1. CAP) — For 25 cents you can get a lot of information on making out your income tax, You don't have to figure the tax on your 1D49 Income, or pay it, till 1950. But if you want a lot of detailed nformalion there's a government oooklet you can buy. It's called "Your Federal income Tax." H runs to 138 imgcs. is put out by ihe Internal Revenue Bureau which collects jour tax, and Is Intended to answer a Jot of questions. You can buy it by sending 25 cenls to the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, UC. Last year the government put out a similar booklet and .sold 26o,000 copic.s. 51,000,000 tn File Krlurjis In 1949 about 53.000,000 people filed an income tax return on their 1948 income. In 1950 around 53,000,000 are expected to file a return on their 1949 income. When the income tax deadline— it's March 15, 1950—draws near, this writer aud other newsmen will write series O f stories explaining who does what about his income tax, But. none of these .stories; can go into the details, aud cover ajs many different problems, as arc lrc.ited in this booklet. So it's a good quar- te r 's invest meiil for a gre a t in a ny people. The government will mail—to everyone who filed a return in 1949— an income tnx form for filing their return in 1950. It will send out two kinds of forms: an easy one, called 10-iOA, and one. that requires a little more work, called 1040, With the latter the government will enclose a 16-page booklet explaining some of the details of income ts:x filing. Still, tills booklet, helpful as It is. doe.s uot cover a.s much ground n.s the 138-page booklet explained above. Booklet Recommended As an example of .some of the fields treated in the larger booklet: Ti shows the step-by-step way of filling out a return; it covers things like contribution deductions, medical and dental expenses, traveling deductions, alimony aud automobile deductions, payment and refund of taxes, and so on. Tius booklet, as a result of suggestions and comments on the previous year's booklet, has been improved and enlarged. Tii hi.s preface, the commissioner of internal revenue, George J. Schoeneman, says: "The average taxpayer can hardly expect that the reading of this booklet will make, him a qualified tax expert, but it is believed that a careful persual will result in a better understanding of the tax Inws, and will, in mast cases, provide the information desired."
