4 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MONDAY, JANUARY 15, 1945 Charles City Globe-Gazette SEEKS JUSTICE COURT HEARING Former Iowa Bus Queai Asks for Examination ' Charles City--Another episode In the life of Iowa's former bus ' queen, was written here Saturday, ·when Mrs. Helen Brewer, her husband, Donald Brewer, Sr., and json, Donald Brewer, Jr., appeared in the justice court of John W. McGeeney, and demanded that he allow Mrs. Brewer to have a preliminary hearing on a charge of assault -with intent to commit murder. ' , ,' This charge with 2 others was brought by Sheriff B. F. Atherton against Mrs. Brewer Nov. 2, 1944, after that officer had arrested Mrs. Brewer on the faroi of her father, Joseph Schultz, 12 miles southeast of Charles. City, where? the sheriff and his deputy H, C. McCartney had gone with'a search warrant, 'sworn, out by a neighboring farmer, Sivert Reints, to look -for some of Heuits* calves which he claimed had strayed. Sheriff Atherton alleges that Mrs. Brewer attacked friTy with a club and otherwise hindered the officers' efforts to · sort out the \ calves from the Schultz-Brewer herd, 6 of which Heints and neighboring farmers identified, as be- longing .to Reints. . , - Mrs. Brewer was released from jail the following day at noon ·when her father signed bonds totaling $6,000 on the 3 charges, .after Mrs. Brewer had waived % preliminary hearing on t h e charges, according to Justice McGeeney. ' ' ' . . . ' · · McGeeney then trans eripted the 3 cases to the district court, and following the transcription, County Attorney Weston E. Jones prepared a. county attorney's information on the more serious charge . of assault with intent to commit murder, for which Mrs. Brewer's trial is scheduled to. start in district court before a jury Tuesday. Justice McGeeney explained to the Brewers that the matter was entirely out of his hands, as she had waived a preliminary hearing in order to be released from GRACIE ALLEN BARFS AGAIN!

The justice entered a contempt 3.f. court charge against young Brewer on his records. Later Saturday afternoon,' young ' Donald was released and the justice said he.would set a time, convenient with county authorities, to hear the contempt charge, following the consummation of Mrs. Brewer's trial in district court, which starts Tuesday before Judge T. A. Beardmore of Charles City. While the Brewers were in his office, Justice McGeeney read to them an. information which had been signed shortly after his visit to the Schultz farm, by Sheriff Atherton, charging the 3 Brewers with larceny'of domestic animals, in connection with the 6 stray calves of Reints 1 which were found among the' Schultz-Brewer herd. ' - ' McGeeney said this case would be set like the contempt of court charge against young Brewer at a later date when county authorities could be at liberty and when Mrs. Brewer's case; in- district court had been disposed of.

Don't spread cold» by coughing-- u» Smith Broj, Cough Drop*. OOT output i* war* .reduced, but we're doing our best to quitt every cough, SMITH oven Washington, OIPJ--Here is an official treasury explanation ot the revised federal income tax collection system which became effective Jan. 1 under the 1914 tax simplification law: PURPOSE OF RETURN--Under the pay-as-you-go system of income tax collections, most individuals pay all or-a substantial ?art of their income tax during fte year in which they receive ihelr income. The tax is withheld torn their wages or paid in quar- :erly installments as estimated ax, or both. However, these payments do not exactly equal the' ictual tax liability. It is necessary for each taxpayer' to file a fetiirn at the end of the' year showing his actual taxi, liability, so that any additional amount due may be collected or any over payment may be refunded. WHO MUST HOLE--Everyone (Ineladinr minors whose 1944 Income was ?5W or more. Other* whose income waa lest than $500 but had tax withheld. from their waces should Hie to get a refold. WHEN TO FILE--Not ~ 'later that March 15, 194S. File early. Service men and women stationed outside of the United States may postpone filing. · · . ··'· WHERE TO PILE--With the collector of internal revenue in your district , ' FORM OF RETURN--There are 2 income tax return forms. One form Is on the Whhholdtnc Receipts, Form W-2 (Rev.), famished by employers to employes in duplicate. The other form is the standard.return form, called Form 1010. However, Form 1040 may be used either as a "short" or "long" form return. Therefore, there are 3 ways of matinp a return as follows: 1: Withholding Receipt -- Approximately 30,000,000 persons are expected to use the new system of making a return by stating their income and exemptions on their withholding receipts, arid permitting the 'collector to compute the tax. The collector will give them .credit lor tax already paid and send either a bill or a refund check for any difference. If husband and wife make a "combined return" on a withholding receipt, the collector, will figure their tax on either their combined or sep arate incomes, whichever is to the taxpayers' advantage. Generally speaking, use of a withholding receipt as a return-is limited to persons whose income was less than $5,000 and virtually all from wages subject to withholding. 2. Short-Form Return--An estimated 10,000,000 persons areex- pected to .make "short-form re^ turns", on Form 1040, which is permitted in the case of anyone whose income was less than $5,000, regardless of its source. On a short-form return, no "deductions^ are listed (other than business"; deductions) and no-arithmetical computation of tax is necessary, since the tax is found in a table which automatically allows about 10 per'cent of the taxpayer's total income for "deductions," This is called a "short form" because half of-the. form. may. be torn off, and/only the top sheet needs to be filed. 3. Long-Form Return--An estimated 10,000,000 persons are expected to make ."long-form" returns on Form 1040. This form of return is required in ths case of any taxpayer whose 1944 income was $5,000 or more or who (regardless of the source or amounl of his income) claims deductions amounting to more than 10 per cent of his income. DEDUCTIONS--In the case of a return made on a withholding receipt or on a short-form Fora 1040, the tax will be figured from a table (provided by law) which automatically allows about 10 per 1 cent of the taxpayer's total income for charitable contributions, interest, taxes, medical expenses casualty'losses-and miscellaneous deductible expenses. Use of those forms is entirely optional, however, and- anyone who claims larger 'deductions is entitled to itemize and deduct the actual amount of his deductible expenses by making a long-form return on Form 1040. Although required to make long-form returns, persons with income of $5,000 or more are permitted by law to take a standard deduction of $500 in lieu o: itemizing deductions. INCOME TAX 'RATES AND EXEMPTIONS--The income tax includes _a "normal tax" and a "surtax."'Both are figured as percentages of income but with different rates and exemptions. The normal tax is a flat rate of 3 per cent The surtax is at graduated rates ranging from 20 to 91 per cent. For normal tax, a flat exemption of $500 is allowed for each taxpayer. In the case of a joint return of .husband and wife the combined normal tax exemption is $1,000 if each has income of $500 or more; but if the income of either was. less than $500, the combined normal tax exemption is $500 plus the actual amount of the smaller income. For surtax, an exemption of S 5 00 is allowed for the taxpayer, $500 for his wife and $500. for each dependent relative ·TAX EXEMPT INCOME--Bo not include in income any wholly exempt items, snch as mastering- out pay, first 51.500 of active military pay, government contributions to monthly ' family allowances, pensions and disability compensation to war veterans arti their familes, gifts, bequests, and social security benefits. EXEMPTIONS -- Each of th return forms has a space for writing the names of the persons for whom the taxpayer claims exemptions. He lists his own name first Next, if married, he may list the name of his wife provided (a) they are making a joint or combined return which includes both their incomes Or (b) she ha no income and was not the dependent of another. In addition, le may list as dependents all close ·elatives who received more .than lalf of then: support from him during the year, provided the dependent did not have $500 or more income of his own during the year. (Note: The 1944 law changed the rules for claiming dependents. Principle c h a n g e s Jermit exemption for a dependent relative over 18, regardless of mental or physical condition, and irohibit an exemption for a de- iendent who has $500 or more income or who is not related to the axpayer.) MORE THAN ONE RECEIPT-Persons who changed Job* In 1944 should have onp' withholding receipt from each employer. All of he receipts most be filed together. However, if · return is made on one of the receipts, only that one needs to be filled out bat all other receipts most be attached to it XOST RECEIPTS---Anyone who las lost a withholding receipt nay ask his employer for a copy. However, if he is unable to replace, it, he is not permitted to make bis return on a receipt but must, instead, use Form 1040. .OLD-STYLE RECEIPTS--During most of 1944, an old-style of withholding receipt, e n t i t l e d "Statement 6f -Income Tax Withheld from Wages" was issued em- ployes upon leaving; their jobs.' Anyone having any · old-style re^ ceipts should attach them to his return along with all other withholding receipts for 1944. WHERE .TO GET FORM 1040-Copies of Form 1040 with instructions will he mailed by collectors to all persons who filed declaration of estimated income tax in December, 1943, and April, 1944. For the convenience of others who may need this form, copies may be obtained at any collector's office, bank or post office, and from many employers. WHERE TO GET HELP--Information and assistance, · if needed, can be obtained from collector of internal revenue in any district or from any of his branch offices. BALANCE OF 1943 TAX_Separate bills will be sent out shortly after .the first of,the year to all taxpayers who postponed-part of their 1943 tax. Payment is due on or before March 15, DECLARATION OF ESTIMATED INCOME TAX FOR 1945 Purpose--To provide a basis for paying currently any income taxes owed la excess of the tax withheld from' wages. , Who Must File--A declaration must be filed oh or about March 15, 1S45, by every citizen or resident of the United States who expects to receive in 1945 (a) wages subject to -withholding in excess of $5,000 plus $500 for each surtax exemption except his own (example,: $5,500 in case of a married couple with no dependents or a single person with 1 dependent); or (b) income f r o m all other sources in excess of $100, provided his total income is expected to amount io $500 or more. Method of Estimating--No special worksheets are provided for 1945 declaration. The same .form 1040 used in making returns may be used as a guide to estimate tax. Nazis Get New Troops in Italy By SED FEDER Rome, (/P) -- German f o r c e s blocking the .allied drive-in northern Italy have been strongly reinforced and Monday are using the h e a v i e s t artillery encountered since -allied troops cracked the Hitler line last May.

Southeas of Bologna, one combat p'arty pushed to Furma, 8 miles below Imola, but ran into heavy enem; artillery fire. Northeast of Furma, a patrol probed the slopes of Vei Del'Gesso but was forced to curtail activities because of the weather. An enemy patrol was en countered a mile north of Monte Grande, southeast of Bologna anc forced to withdraw. On the Adriatic sector the Ger mans have established a bridgehead on the east bank of the Sento river in the Fnslgnano area, northeast of captured Faenza, the com- munique said. It is apparent that Field Marshal Albert Kesselring plans to try to hold a defense line running from the north bank of the Reno river and the west bank of the Senio river on the Adriatic side, then southward along the Senio into the Apennines. The line then runs west through the mountains soutl of Bologna. From the Bologna area west to the Serchio river are impassable mountains. The Germans ar.e holding from Galilean westward to the sea. The most vicious defenses have been established in the mountain south of Bologna, which must bt denied the allies if. the Germans want to keep shut the doorway tc flatlands of the Lombardy plain* and to retain the vitally neede( supply and manufacturing base The Germans have a large ammu nition factory at Bologna which enables them to send a stead: flow of ammunition to front lines One German prisoner of war said Kesselrin* had been orderei by Hitler to ""hold at all costs" on this line.
