LIST POLICY FOR SMALL BUSINESS Senate Committee Gives Basic Principles WASHINGTON, (#)--The senate small business committee Monday laid down five basic principles which members said would be hailed as "five commandments" by the operators of small enterprises. They were: "Small business must be more effectively used in war production. "Small business must be more effectively used in meeting essential civilian needs. "Small business requires assistance in adjusting to certain war conditions. "Small business needs better access to capital. , "If small business is to make its maximum contribution to American life, the federal government must improve its approach to small business problems." * ¥ * The five points were set out in a report of the committee's activities, presented by the chairman, Senator Murray (D.-Mont.) The report said the committee ivas considering the advisability o£ several pieces of legislation. Proposals under consideration include the creation of a civilian supply administrator within the war production board, creation of a war minerals director to co-or- linate the activities of various 'ederal agencies in the mining industry, and government .financial assistance for industries beset by wartime burdens. * * * As for the relations of the government and small business, fhe report declared: "Our vast country cannot be administered by 'directives' from Washington. D. C., or by any group of people, no matter how well- ntentioned, who sit behind closed doors and neglect to take the people into their councils. Every small businessman knows that the government must be taken to the people and the people to the government.'' n .YOUR U. S. INCOME TAX_ Normal Tax and Surtax Explained NO. 1* The federal income tax payable on the taxable income is divided into two parts known as normal tax and surtax. The sum of these two taxes in all ordinary cases represents the total tax due. The exceptions arise in cases where there have been specified capital gains or losses, in which case an alternative computation is permitted provided there are net long-term capital gains in excess of net short-term capital losses; or in cases where the taxpayer holds bonds with a tax-free covenant (bends in which the issuing corporation pays part of the income tax on the interest), in which case a deduction of the amount paid by the corporation is allowable against the tax com puted on the return. The surtax is computed at variable rates, depending upon the amount of the surtax net income. The surtax net income is the amount of the ne_t income of the taxpayer (gross income less deductions) less the personal exemption and the credit for dependents. This is the amount shown on line 23 of the income tax return, form 1040. On the first 52,000 of surtax net income the surtax is 13 per ceni of the surtax net income. On surtax net income over $2,000 and not over S4,OOD the surtax is $260 plus 16 per cent of the surtax net income above $2,000. On surtax net income over 84,000 and not over 56,000, the surtax is S580 plus 20 per cent of the amount of surtax net income above S'J.OOO. The rat increases as the amount of surta: net income increases. The com putation of the tax for each in come block is given in a table ac companying the return form. The normal tax is calculated on the "balance subject to normal tax," which is shown on line 26 of the income tax return form 1040. The balance subject to normal tax is tho surtax net income less the earned income credit, less interest received on certain types of United States government bonds and bonds of federal instrumentalities, and less dividends on share accounts in federal savings and loan associations issued prior to March 28, 1942. The computation of the earned income credit is set forth in schedule E of the return form 1040, and in instruction 25 accompanying the return form. * * * The normal tax is 6 per cent of the "balance subject to normal tax," whatever the amount. For persons filing a simplified return, the normal tax and surtax, aa well as the earned income credit, have been consolidated into one computation, which is set forth in a table on the back of the return for each size class of income, so that it is necessary only to refer to this table to determine the correct amount of tax due. Any individual whose total income for the year is not in excess of $3,000 and was wholly from salary, wages or other compensation for personal service, dividends, interest or annuities may use a sirr-iilified return (form 1040A).

Less Pheasants Killed in '42 Hunting Season The 21 day hunting season ol 1942 did not reduce the pheasants as much as the 7 day season of 1941, reports Prof. George Hendrickson, department o£ zoology and entomology, Iowa State col» Icge. The pheasants were plentiful, but due to the large number of men away in the service the bird population was not greatly decreased. Pro! Hendrickson commends the farm families who during storms placed corn and grain in the farm lots to feed the needy birds. He suggests corn be scattered again in the spring to keep the pheasants from doing material damage to planted corn. Quail were more numerous this season than in the past two years but few were taken by s p o r t s m e n . Prof. Hendriekson states that the natural food supply for quail is bountiful except in some localities where weeds were killed by early frost. He advises that during stormy weather ear corn or corn in feeders be placed in or close to thickets occupied fay quail.
