Once-proud but twice-defeated Carthage was mercilessly wiped out its half-million inhabitants killed*- 1--or driven into slavery. And as a final gesture the Romans sowed salt upon the Carthaginian earth and condemned its site to lie desolate forever. But today another Roman, Benito Mussolini, looks across the blue Mediterranean and sees the ghost of Carthage stirring omi- Mussolini may well dread this new ignominy--perhaps the most poignant of his career.

INCOME TAX 1 Income on Property Many taxpayers derive income from rents and royalties. Such income is shown in item 6 of the return form 1040. Only the net income--or loss^-is shown in item 6; that is. the difference between the total amount received in revenue from the property less the total amount o[ the ordinary and necessary expenses incurred. An explanation of income, chargeable expense and the kind of property, must be shown in schedule B of the return. The "kind of property" might be indicated as a farm, dwelling, store building, or the like. The chargeable expenses are shown under three headings, as (a) depreciation allowable, (b) repairs, and (c) other expenses. Where depreciation is claimed, a further explanation is required in schedule J (Explanation of Deduction for Depreciation Claims). Repairs and other expenses must also be explained and itemized. * * * A distinction must be made be- tator: Carthage fell because Roman fleets controlled the Mediterranean. Today allied navies dominate it. Yes, when he isn't too busy worrying about Hitler's plans, B. Mussolini may well give a little thought to Cato's Carthaginian chickens coming home to roost with eggs.

Phone 153 M***n CilT, tween expenditures for maintenance and repairs and expenditures for replacements, improvements, and alterations. Replacement expense, to the extent that the replacements arrest deterioration and appreciably prolong the life of the property, is not chargeable against rental income for the year, but is chargable to capital or the depreciation reserve. Only the cost o£ incidental repairs which neither materially add to the value of the property nor appreciably prolong its life, but serve to keep it in an ordinary efficient operating condition, may be deducted as repair expense in schedule B. The distinction between what is an improvement and an alteration, i and what is a repair, is not always I clear, and has been the subject of many rulings and decisions. The cost of painting the outside of a house used for business purposes (rental) and the cost of painting and papering the inside, for instance, are regarded as repairs, deductible as expense in schedule B. The replacement "of a roof or a change in the heating plant, plumbing system, or other major alteration, is regarded as in the nature of a capital expenditure and is not deductible as repair expense in schedule B. Among "other expenses" deductible in schedule B are such items as the ccst of janitor service, water service, fuel, fire insurance, and the like, as well as taxes and interest expense. If taxes and interest are deducted as "other expenses," they may not be deducted under the separate items of taxes and interest in the return. Where a dwelling is partly rented and partly occupied by the tax. payer, only those expenses chargeable to the rented portion are deductible. In the case of a two- family dwelling, for instance, one- half of which is occupied by the owner, ordinarily one-half of the depreciation allowable, repairs and other expenses, would be deductible from the rent received. Royalties are, in general, the earnings from copyrights, patents good will, trade marks, formulas and the like, as well as from mineral properties. In the case of royalties from mineral properties the statute provides for certain allowable depletion expense, depending upon the nature of the property and other factors, and the amounts deducted may not exceed the statutory limitations. Internal Revenue Collector to Open More Iowa Division Offices DBS MOINES, (/P)~E. H Birmingham, collector of internal revenue for Iowa, announced Tuesday that four divisions and three major zone offices will be opened in the state Feb. 1 to handle an expected greater volume of fax returns.

A N D O U R S E C O N D T E A R O«P T H E W A R 7 million Americans under arms ... r/a million beyond our borders... AH fighters--all meat eaters . . ; As the offensive power of the United Notions grows, so grows the need for meat. ·JOOD too has become part of the "grand · strategy" of winning this war. Meat for example: Since the meat industry went on a war footing in 1941, it has furnished our armed forces and our allies 4% billion pounds of meat--fresh and canned. This is the equivalent of 19 billion aver-. age meat meals. ' More than 1200 American meat packing houses and nearly 1000 sausage makers today are doing their utmost to give our own fighters the best diet in the history of warfare; to supply meat to our fighting allies; and still to give every person not in uniform the nutritional values of meat. Those who are not directly supplying the armed forces and allies are doing their part to supply the home front. Meat Animal Population Secretary Wickard's great food-for-victory program starts at the grass roots, where livestock producers are working night and day, often without adequate help, to break their own already phenomenal records. We have the land, we have the facilities and we have the will to produce. Actually there is in this bounteous land one beef animal for every two persons; about the same number of hogs; and better than half as many sheep and lambs. Even with this enormous supply and more on the way, we at home must tighten our belts and spread out meat a little thinner, but we can thank our lucky stars we have it to spread out. Why is meat Item No. 1 on Uncle Sam's food shopping list? Why does the man in training get nearly a pound of meat a day? Why is meat a basic part of every Army ration, even down to pocket-size Field Ration K? Meat, to which man always instinctively" 1 has turned, is now recognized by science and by the government as a protective food, containing many of the things which make for health, stamina and vitality.* To make available these benefits of meat on an unprecedented scale, the meat industry has unleashed the full power of its capacity and skill. Here are a few of the highlights: On* railroad ear now does the work of three in the shipment of boneless beef, which provides just as much meat in 60 per cent less space than required by the sides and quarters shipped during World War I. The new dehydrated beef and pork take up only one-tenth of the space in ships that would be required by meat in other forms. These amazing new military products, which preserve the good flavor, the character and the good nutrition of meat, also lend themselves readily to air transport. -, On the meat production fine--a tremendous new surge. Many new and different kinds of canned meats--stepped up 120 per cent--more than dou- · ble--over total canned meat productiona year ago. A new creation called "Iwhonka" (pieces of pork cooked and canned) is now becoming familiar in the rations of our fighting Russian allies. This is one of many new products created especially for war needs. For months, experts from the livestock and meat industry have visited military centers helping to train cooks in the preparation of meat on a large scale. Under the rising scale of offensive effort, the government, the livestock producer, the meat industry, the sausage maker and the meat retailer, are putting forth every effort to make the meat go 'round--at home as well as on the fighting fronts. Under necessary restriction orders by the government, deliveries to retailers by the meat industry are limited. You as a housewife are already at grips with this problem. You have encountered, and will encounter, many shortages and , inconveniences. Who is to blame tot them? Is it the government? NO; /s it the livestock producer? NO. /s it the meat industry? NO. /s it your meat retailer? NO. Itisacoupleoffellowsnamed Adolf and TojoT What the Housewife Can Do The American housewife is meeting the problem with understanding and resourcefulness. She is "sharing the meat." She is buckling down to doing tricks with food which she never dreamed of before. She realizes that what we have learned about foods in a period of plenty must not be lost in a period of scarcity and self-denial. She knows that strong, healthy bodies are needed to win this war and to build a better world to live in--that there must be no blackout of good nutrition. \ Meat is a mainstay of good nutrition. 1 / How can you keep meat on the table regularly, as good nutrition demands? One way is to leam more cuts of meat-to use the available cuts. Many of these may be new to your table--but they all have the high nutritional value of meat-and can be deliriously prepared. The booklets offered below will help you. Remember, on the battle fronts and the home fronts, meat is a fighting food. Make every pound count!
