Memories Make Best Investments By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - Memories are the best investments. They do not rise or fall like stock market shares at the whim of a current market. They keep an enduring value, and will be worth as much or more a decade from now as they are today. But memories are like dollars in one respect. The more you pile them up, the richer you are. And your memory hoard is pretty extensive if you can look back and remember when— The best way a man could impress people with his dignity was to wear a stiffly starched white collar. A successful girl watcher was one who, on a windy day, got a glimpse of the top of a woman's high-buttoned boots. The age of efficiency began when they got rid of the conductor on streetcars, and the motorman had to start collecting passenger fares. Housemaids got less for a Time* Herald, Carroll, la.

Most county courthouses were so new that the clock in their towers still told the correct lime. The height of revolt on a college campus was a midnight panty raid on a sorority house by a bunch of April-intoxicated fraternity men. Skiing was largely a sport enjoyed by foreigners, and it was done on snow, not water. About all most lads knew about women was what they could learn by watching the girls' high school basketball team play in middies and bloomers. Thugs hesitated to snatch the purse of a woman at night for fear of being skewered by an eight-inch steel hatpin. Husbands hated to go out for an evening because, instead of simply zippering a wife up the back, he had to spend half an hour lacing her into a whalebone corset. When the doctor made a house call, the small children in the family tried to peek into his little black bag to see if it contained a tiny baby—for that was where babies came from in Stars Descend on New Mexico, Buy it By DICK KLEINER ALBUQUERQUE, N. M. (NEA) — New Mexico is going all out to lure film companies here, and one of their liveliest lures is the great variety of terrain the state offers. Currently, "Shootout" is shooting out in the rugged and chilly north, and "Scandalous John" in the hot and steamy south. Around Albuquerque there are two companies at work. "Bunny 1 O'Hare" is in rolling hilly country southeast of here, near the tiny town of Chilili, and "Julio and Stein" is working in and around the city proper. Many of the stars who come to New Mexico to work like the state so much they buy land here. Burl Ives, Dennis Hopper and Anthony Quinn are among them but Bette Davis, costarring in "Bunny O'Hare," has not added her name to that list. "It's beautiful," she says, "but I'm a Yankee. I have to be near one coast or the other. I get claustrophobic in the middle of the country." Borgnine, Betl^'s more a convert.

But there are drawbacks — he rolled up the trousers of his blue jeans to show the long thermal underwear he had on. The mornings, he said, were very cold. As for filming here — "There is gorgeous air, gorgeous mountains, gorgeous sunsets," Bette Davis, says, "and I'll discuss the rest after the picture is over." "Bunny O'Hare" is a curious comedy about two middleaged bank robbers. The two (Miss Davis and Borgnine) try to escape into Mexico in their battered camper. A make-believe border crossing was built which was so realistic, producer-director Gerd Oswald said, that the state police got 40 calls from people who wanted to know if President Nixon had given some land to Mexico. Bette Davis, in a plain dress, lived-in sweater and dumpy hat, seemed happy. "Bunny O'Hare" is a milestone in her milestone-strewn career. It is, first, her 100th film. But, perhaps even more important, it is her first on-location film. "It's a complete departure for me," she says. "There's no use for an actor sitting around moaning about how things used to be. This is the coming thing, shooting out of the studio, and I'll just have to get used to it." Questions, Answers on U.S. Tax Matters Ernest Borgnine and Bette Davis They had one cover set (a cover set is where location companies go in bad weather), which was in an Albuquerque garage. "I'd rather shoot in something other than a garage," Bette says. "If anybody has any doubts about my career being over, just tell them Bette Davis is now shooting in a garage and that will set them straight." The "Julio and Stein" company was also shooting at an auto-wrecking garage on the outskirts of Albuquerque. This is a motorcycle film — producer Jerry Katzman thinks this genre has become as permanent as westerns — and it stars Dean Stockwell. Stockwell was doing his first bike-riding since he fell off and hurt himself so badly he was hospitalized for months. But what he was most interested in talking about was Dennis Hopper's coming film, "The Last Movie," in which Stockwell appears. "I saw ninety minutes of it awhile ago," Stockwell said, "and I can't forget it. It blew my mind. It 'll prove to everybody who's been putting Hopper down that 'Easy Rider' was no fluke."

The column answers questions most frequently asked by taxpayers.) Q - I bought • lot ef raffle tickets that my church and the volunteer fire department were selling at the county fair. Can I add these to my other charitable contributions? A — No, liiey are treated as gambling losses under Federal tax law. If you itemize deductions, losses may be deducted but only to the extent of winnings. This would reduce the tax due. A car or other merchandise won in a raffle must be included in income at its fair market value. Q — If I give presents to some ef my customer* CM I deduct the cost as a business expense? A — Yes, business gifts are a deductible expense as long as they do not exceed $25, to any one customer during the year. If gifts total more than $25, only $25 may be deducted. A gift to a customer's wife or child must generally be included with any gift to the customer himself in figuring the $25 limit. Note that gifts which cost $4 or less are not subject to this limit if your name is clearly and permanently printed on the item and is one of a number of identical items distributed by you. This would cover calendars, pens and similar items. Q — My brother had some heavy medical expenses last year and I helped him out with them. Can I deduct this on my return? A — As a general rule, only medical expenses paid for a dependent may be deducted with your other medical expenses. This rule would not apply if you could have claimed your brother as a dependent except for the fact that he had income of $625 or over or filed a joint return with his wife. If you think this exception applies in your case, be sure to have a good record of what you contributed to your brother's support for the year. Q — Are Gl's in Vietnam taxed on their pay? A — Enlisted men and warrant officers need not report pay received for a month any part of which they served in Vietnam. Commissioned Officers may exclude from income the first $500 of monthly pay received for service during any month in Vietnam. These rules apply when servicemen are in an area declared a combat zone. Military personnel stationed in this country, for example, are taxed. \ i! ,\ \>\l A. Ml^sSlrP^ \ we pay hospital and doctor bills, and we worry about you. On one hand, we worry about what rising health care costs can mean to you, and we work to help keep them as low as possible. On the other hand, we worry about the quality of health care, and we work to keep that as high as possible. One way we work to make sure high quality care is available to you is by helping hospitals meet certain standards. We want hospitals to have all necessary departments, personnel and equipment.
