The salvage division has sug- and that Tenney seemed to try to scramble out of the seat. He was almost on his feet when he went down from a blow on the head, according to Hubbard.

EARLE SHEKA "PAY AS YOU GO" MAKES RETURNS MORE COMPLEX Enbusk Explains Provisions of Federal Income Tax on KGLO In other years income taxes were payable in quarterly installments. This year the full amount of balance o£ the 1943 tax must be paid on or before March 15. In addition to the payment ot the balance of the 1943 tax, certain taxpayers must file their 1944 estimate and pay a quarter of the 1944 estimated tax. These tax facts were pointed out by Frank Enbusk, local public accountant, on the KGLO Forum Thursday night in his annual tax a ile reminded that a 1914 estimate must be filed on March 15 by a single person with an income of over $2,100 from salaries or waees, or a married person, or the head of a family, if the income is over $3,500, or by taxpayers having an income from sources other than salary of $100 a year or more, plus income from salary to brinr their total income to more than $500 in the case of a single person and S624 in the case of a head of a family. Farmers are given special consideration because it would be impossible for a farmer to determine his income at the present time, Mr. Enbusk said. He pointed out that a farmer may lile his tax estimate now, or at his option may wait until next Dec. 15. If he files his ta:c estimate on Dec. 15, he must pay the full amount of his estimated 1944 tax at that time.
