PAQX TWELTB BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS —gUESDAT-y-EBRUARY-14,-19l»-- Arkonsont In Washington Tax Concessions for Farmers Is Suggested by Forrest Citlan By GORDON BROWN WASHINGTON (AP) — J. W. Alderson Jr., of Forrest City, Ark., has a new idea to aid the farmer — give him tax concessions comparable to those now given industry. Alderson outlined his views in testimony before a House Agriculture subcommittee headed by old friend. Rep. Gainings. Alderson' conceded he probably* was before the wrong committee since tax matters nre handled b> the House Ways and Means Com mittee. But his Views obviously in terested Gainings and other mem hers of the subcommittee. Alderson pointed out that for 195! corporation income was at a new high peak and all levels of the nation's economy were booming wMJi one notable exception—Farm ing. . What, then, was the reason for ibis? — Well, Alderson said, he reasoned that it Was the result of the tax structure which gives industry some important concessions. For instance, he said, corpora . ttons increased their working capital by 2',4 billion dollars las year. How? Well, he said ,he be lleves it is chiefly the result o the rapid tax amortization grante( industries on capital investments No Such Gimmick An industry, he said, is allowed under the law to write off as de preciation a big part of capita outlays for improvements in a per iod of five years. This gives it a rolling fund. 1 But the farmer, he said, has no such gimmick. If he buys a tractor he has to amortize it over 10 years and actually its useful life isn't tiiat long. Industry, he said, can amortize in five years and its equipment and plants are good for many, many years. Similarly, Alderson said, the and mining industries get special treatment on their income taxes by what is known a« depleton allowances. "A farmer constantly is depleting his soil but he gets no depletion allowance," Alderson said. H4s idea, he said, is that farmers should be allowed some depletion allowance, some tax concession to put him on a par with industry. "Industry is getting tax benefits that the farmer is not," he said. "Now don't take these benefits from industry. They help industry grow and help the economy. But give the farming industry similar treatment and help it grow." H the farming industry had some rolling fund for capital investment, he said, "we'd put the farm implement business back on its feet right now." Also, he satd, if farmers could get a tax break they could affort to take a lower price on their products. On the subject of cotton, Aider- son suggested that growers might be given both an acreage and a production allotment. Then if a grower had a good year and grew more than his production allotment on his acreage allotment he would store the excess and apply it to his production the next year, in event he had a pumper crop. Under this plan, Alderson said, the farmer and not the government "would store any surplus which developed. "That's the way it's done in industry," he asserted. "Industry takes care of its surplus—not the government." En the room to hear Alderson. who is a farmer and a merchant, were Mrs. Alderson and their son and daughter. LONG TRESSES FOR VICTORY-This woman isn't rigging up a new hairdo. She's feeding bundles of hemp into a machine to make rope for rerigging the historic ship, Victory, at Chatham, England. The new rigging for Lord Nelson's flagship is being made in the same rope walk which supplied the ship's rope before the famous battle of Trafalgar in 1805. In that battle, the English defeated the Spanish and French fleets, Lord Nelson losing his life. The Victory is being rerigged for Navy Day» in August. Pickpocket Gets Dentist LONG BEACH, Calif. Iffl — A voman entered Dr. Linus West's office and told him she wanted her teeth pulled. The dentist said he didn't extract teeth but would recommend a colleague who did. Then, he told police, she threw her arms around him and said, "What I really need is affection." Dr. West, who is 75, disengaged himself and told her, "I'm afraid I'm not interested." He gave her his colleague's name and she left. A few minutes later he found his wallet, containing $160, was gone. Dr. West said the woman Was about 40. He couldn't give a detailed description of her except that she had six teeth in her upper jaw and eight in her lower.
