Vulnerable after Tuesday's tech nical correction, the list offered only spotty resistance although se lected equities responded to de velopments affeetfng individua issues. Volume shrank after a fair ly fast opening and the tap. dawdled in the final hours. Trans fers aggregated about 450,001 shares. The lack of stronger sentimen for a movement either way wa: attributed to resistance of inves tors pending further delineation of the downswing. Bullish force! could find plenty of support fo' their beliefs but appeared reluctant to act despite internal ion a and domestic news consideret favorable. In their absence, light pressure was enough to shove leaders into the minus column. Produce (merchant Quotations) (Cash Quotations by E. O.

INCOME TAX- Earned Income Credit Explained NO. 15 In arriving at the amount'of tax due on the taxable income of individuals, a credit known as "earned income credit" is allowec against income in computing the "normal tax." . The amount of earned income credit is entered on line 25 of the return form 104C and the computation of the earned income credit is shown in schedule E of the return form. The manner of computation is set forth in nstruction 25 accompanying the .arm. The earned income credit is defined by lav/ as 10 per cent of he earned net income, but not in access of 10 per cent of the net ncome; but this definition is sub- ect to certain qualifications. There are three major qualifica- lons. First, if the taxpayer's net in- ome (that is, the amount shown n hne 19 of the return) is not reater than $3,000, then the arned income credit is taken as 0 per cent of the net income- hat is, the entire' net income is onsidered as earned net income. ^ ^ Sfi Second, if the taxpayer's net ncome exceeds S3,OQO, then the arned income credit is taken as 0 per cent of the net income or earned net income whichever the smaller, but in any case at east S300. Earned net income is defined as e "earned income" less the :arnad income deductions." Earned income" is earnings from mployment, that is, earnings rom wages, salaries, professional ees, tips, bonuses and the like, he "earned income deductions" re the ordinary and necessary xpenses incurred in connection »ith such employment. .

This maxi- num would occur when both the ~et income and the earned net acome were $14.000 or more. For persons filing a simplified eturn. it is not necessary to com- ute the earned income credit as iis has been consolidated into ic computation of tax shown in IB table on the back of the re- urn form. It is necessary only o refer to this table to arrive at IB correct amount of fax due. Any idividual whose total income for le year is not in excess of S3,- 00 and was wholly from salary, .'ages or other compensation for ersonal service, dividends, in- erest or annuities, may use a implified return (form 1040A). 7 uneral Rites Held t Grafton Church or Albert Baumann GRAFTON- -- Funeral services ere held Sunday afternoon for Ubert Baumann, 85, at the Im- lanuel Lutheran church \vith the ^ev.

The Germans have thus lost t h e northern anchor of their line which ex- south- f r o m KEEMTE tended w a r d Lake Ladoga to Bzhev, west of Moscow. The Russians are attacking at both ends of the line and apparently are planning to force a German withdrawal which will sweep the nazis out of northern Russia into the Baltic states. The freeing of Leningrad will make it possible to reopen the railroad fo Moscow and restore the great industrial city, Russia's second largest, to the country's war economy. The effect on that part of the front should be great The * * success at Leningrad heightened the deep impression which Russia's strength has made on London military observers. They are amazed at the red army's ability to strike simultaneously all alonjr a 1,250- mile front from the Baltic to the Caucasus. * * * The Russians are engaged successfully on six sectors of that ong front, namely, Leningrad Voronezh, the Lower Don, the Northern Donets, Stalingrad, and the Northern Caucasus. · In the northern area, the Russians have pushed more than 100 niles past Rzhev to Veliki Luki, eaving a narrow German salient extending in a finger to their rear from Smolensk to Bzhev. The Russians are battering at the German lines around Veliki Luki and it appears possible that this salient can be pinched off and annihilated unless the Germans are able to withdraw from Rzhev and fall back on Smolensk, their next -trong point on the Upper Dnieper. In the Stalingrad area, a German force sctimated at up to 70 000 men is trapped and the Russians are engaged in exterminating it. * * * In the Lower Don region, the Russians arc closing in on Ros- tov. They have driven rapidly past Millerovo to Kamensk and are advancing: on Lithaya, the rail junction to the south. They also are close to Salsk, 100 miles southeast of Rostov. * * * The gaps between the Russians and the key city to the Caucasus are being closed rapidly and it seems increasingly probable that the Russians have a good chance of cutting off all the German forces in the Caucasus. It would be a disaster comparable to that at Sialingrad or perhaps greater. PilotJShotTin Raid, Brings Plane Home LONDON, d).R)_ United States army headquarters revealed the 'extraordinary heroism" of Second Lt. Joseph B. Boyle, who, though vounded in face and legs by ;hrapnel, brought a flying fortress back from France with the pilot dead, two members o£ the crew wounded, and German fighter planes chasing him. Boyle, of Teaneck, N. J., was co- lilot o£ the fortress, "Dry Marini." His gallantry deeply impressed Brig. Gen. H. S. Ansel, Jr., who commanded the fortress ormation in which "Dry Martini" flew on a recent raid against -jlle, France. * « * Ansel thought "Dry Martini" was lost when it dived from formation pursued by German fighters. It was caught in a ring w shells as the bombardier, S^pna "· Bruce A. Gardiner of hi. Johns, Ariz., got his bombs away on the target--the LHIe steel and locomotive works * * *'· A moment later, a Focke-Wulf Backstage in Iowa Politics Suggests Date of Governor's Term Be Changed So That lowans Can Get to U. S. Senate on Time North Carolin Votes on Fund for After War By FEANK T. NYE (Iowa Dally Press Writer) DES MOINES, (IDPA)--Jf Iowa plans to continue advancing its governors to senatorships, it would do well to change the date that a governor begins his term, according to the Marshalltown Times-Republican. Otherwise, future governors who become senators, will face the same problem as Senator George A. Wilson, when he was governor, and retiring Senator Clyde L. Herring, when he was governor-that of choosing between completing their term as chief executive or resigning to.begin their senate terras on time. * * * . * * * A CHANGE--This situation should be changed so that any governor advanced to the senate from Iowa can complete his term and arrive in Washington in time to be sworn in with other new senators, the Times-Republican says editorially. Horse and buggy days are over, the paper states, and it would be wise to move the beginning of the governor's term up to the tirst Monday in December, since it is no longer necessary to let considerable time elapse between election day and the day the legislature canvasses the vote. Then, too, the newspaper says that the earlier date would allow legislator-farmers to get away for their spring work earlier. ¥ * * * * * AN ARTIST--Who do you suppose is responsible for transforming the governor's office into a veritable flower garden on inaugural nights? None other than William Van Arkle, florist at Woodward state hospital, and statehouse grounds floral supervisor. He's a native of Holland and has made floral arrangements for the last nine inaugurals. * * * * * ¥ DEMOCRATS. EU? The society editor of the Cedar Rapids Gazette was gathering a list of Linn countians planning to attend Gov. B. B. Hickenlooper's inaugural. From one prominent family came this reply to her question: "My dear, we are very good friends o£ the Hickenloopers, but WE'RE democrats." * * *- * * * GOVER.VOR HICK--Some statehouse reporters have been covering the new governor ever since his days in the house of represen- :atives. Nevertheless, they were slightly embarrassed when they entered the gubernatorial suite for their first press conference with him. You see, they were uncertain whether to address him as "governor" or as "Hick," their usual nickname for hum. He soon put them at ease: "When people quit calling me 'Hick,' " he said, "I'll know they are no longer my friends." * * * * * * by Reporters reasoned that they could at least be more respectful making it "Governor Hick." * * * * BIARI WAS THERE--One member of outgoing Governor Wilson's .amily was present for the inauguration--Miss Mary-«-who is a chum of 13 year old Jane Hickenlooper, daughter of the new governor. Mary's parents were in Washington, D. C. where, earlier in the day her father became Senator Wilson. * * * * * # A STATEHOUSE TAD?--History lovers will remember Abraham jncolns son "Tad" who had the run of the whitehouse when his ather was president.

The fortress' guns nswered, but a cannon shell ierced the cockpit window and urst inside, killing the pilot, laj. Tom H. Taylor, of Eugene, N re. Boyle was struck in the face nd legs and was stunned. The ortress dived from formation, fol- owed by Germans spraying it /ith cannon and machine gun re. Boyle regained consciousness, ulled the dead Taylor from the ontrols, brought the fortress back o even keel and began climbing ack toward the formation. It 'as still under continuous attack, nd shells pierced the forward ompartment, the ball and turret ompartments. The top turret gunner, Staff Igt. William M. Beach, of Lords- urg, N. Mex., was wounded in he legs. Staff Sgt. J. S. Hill, o£ /alhalla, N. Y., in the ball turret, vas also wounded in the legs * * * Despite his wounds, Beach, with the radio operator, Staff Sgt. Oscar E. Ballew, of Enola, Ta., carried the body of Taylor into the nose of the plane. Hill went on firing until he was taken from the turret by the waist pnnner. Technical Sfct. Harris L. Marby of Dallas.

Robert Nye, of Belleview, Wash., the top turret was hit .gain, blowing of£ Beach's mask, iut he blazed away at the Germans until Ballew had splintered Hill's legs. Ballew and Marby then got Beach from the top turret and ·ave him first aid so skilfully that leither he nor Hill will be permanently injured. * * * In the waist of the fortress Sgt. W. D. Hise, of Pittsburgh, Pa. vas firing the two waist guns al- ernately. Shrapnel had blown way the shoulders of the flying uit of the tail gunner, Sgt. Eieh- rd F.

Boyle, meanwhile, had rejoined he formation, and with Marby's elp. flew tightly with it, Boyle, the hospital, said he didn't -now whether his gunners had not down any Germans.

ANYTHING BUT JAP BULBS SAN DIEGO, Cal., (U.R--F. E. Voss celebrated Christmas with a patriotic self-imposed · blackout. He bought colored bulbs for his Christmas tree, but \vhen he found at home that they were made in Japan, he smashed them and sat the evening out in black- RALEIGH, N. Car., U.R--North Carolina, through its general assembly, has taken the first step to cushion itself against postwar financial difficulties by setting aside a reserve fund o£ $22,000,000 from'the general fund surplus cash to be invested in state and federal securities. The first act of the general assembly meeting in biennial session, introduced such a bill with the full approval of Gov. J. M. Broughton. * * * In his message to a joint session of the assembly on Jan. 7, B rough- ton pointed out that the state's "general fund cash surplus . . . . will exceed $30,000,000 by the expiration of the present fiscal year ending June 20, 1943," and proposed: "That not less than $20,000,000 of the general fund surplus now existing or accruing during the present fiscal year be appropriated and set aside as a post war reserve fund, to be invested wholly in. state and government bonds or securities and to be subject only to such action as may be taken with, respect thereto by subsequent sessions of the general assembly. "I ask that the general assembly gave immediate consideration to this recommendation so that such portion of the existing idle surplus may be immediately invested in such interest-bearing securities." * * * The bills as introduced by both branches of the legislature, provide for such postwar funds to be invested by the governor and, council of state in bonds of'the United States and North Carolina with interest and revenues to become a part of the reserve fund. The state treasurer is to be the custodian of the fund's investment, and the funds to be used only as directed by the general assembly. The bills further provide that the governor and council of state shall make a written report to the general assembly by the tenth day ot each regular or special session, showing receipts, disbursements and investments of funds. Although Broughton only asked that $20,000,000 be set aside in the fund, the senate appropriations committee increased his recommendation by $2,000,000, making their bill read $22,000,000. This was taken to mean by members of the legislature that full approval of the recommendation would be forthcoming in a few days by enactment of the bm into law.
