ATKINS ASKING TO BE WEIGHED Let me be weighed in an even balance, that God may know mine integrity. Read Job 31:6: 16-22. Job was a "perfect and upright man" 01- else there would have been no drama of Job. He is not there/ore afraid of the scales of God. On the contrary he welcomes them. This 31st chapter is fascinating for an imagery which makes poetry of ethics and its realistic catalogue of the moral standards of Job's worid. By such tests badness and goodness do not seem to have greatly changed their natures in the last thirty centuries. Respect for the sanctity of the home, consideration for those who work tor and with us; ssnsitvenejss to human need; right ways of working with fields; wrong love of money; truckling to the crowd; how modern it all is directly we turn Job's poetry into our prose These are the weights against which Job asked to be weighed. We would be wise to weigh ourselves and our society in such scales. Prayer: Lord of the Just Balance, give us courage enough to submit our individual and social ways to the verdict of Thy balances. Teach us anew how every daily deed and common task has set over against them Thy weights and measures, not in some distant order but in all our ways. And, if the reading humbles us, grant that it may also correct us and through Thy mercy enable us to do better. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. YOUR FEDERAL INCOME TAX G. 0. Lashbrook and H. E.

The bureau of internal revenue has at its command many sources for checking up delinquent taxpayers. One of these is the "information at source" provision of the revenue act, under which persons, "in whatever capacity acting," are required to report to the commissioner of internal revenue at Washington, D. C., payments of fixed or determinable income to another in any calendar year of 51,000 or more. If the recipient is married, and a citizen or resident of the United States, reports need not be made of salary or other compensation for personal services unless the payments aggregate S2,aOO or more, If the marital status of the payee is unknown to the payor, the payee is considered a single person Jor the purpose ol filing an information return of salary or other compensation for personal services. Fixed or determinabie income includes wages, salaries, royalties, premiums, rent, interest, etc. A separate return of information for each employe-is k required of employers. The requirements are not limited to periodical payments, but a single payment must be reported.
