(U.P.) -- Form 104OA, ' which you sat up with Tuesday · night, is so simple and easy to fill i out that a 7 year old child can do it '",' in 15 minutes--provided the child's name is Joel Kupperman, the quiz 1 kids' mathematical genius. i "I filled out lotsa them," Joel : . admitted modestly Wednesday ; "and it only took me 'bout 15 mini utes for the hardest ones." Joel, a third grade pupil, wa ', puzzled why so many grownup ! should have to stand in line {o i hours to receive instructions on ! how to file their income tax re j turns. ; "I read where people said th 1 form should be made simpler," h \ said. "I guess if so many people i think so, it should be changed. - But, eolly, making out income tax ; returns is easier than doing al: gebra problems. "In algebra you have the unknown quantity, but making out income tax returns is just plain addition and . subtraction." Joel's class is learning to' add numbers which total 100. When he finishes those problems, he voluntarily turns to second year high school algebraic equations and to '. reading Van Loon's "History o£ Mankind." Quiz Kid Richard Williams, 14, can't see anything difficult about lling out income tax forms either. He said it took him about 30 minutes to fill out his, including checking his figures. He believes that many people encountered difficulties "because hey didn't read the instructions." 'My goodness, it's all down there plain as can be," he said. Because he earned $5,200 last year appearing on the radio he could not use the simplified form. "I wish I could of, though," he said. "That's easy, like eating applepie. I used it when 1 worked out my English teacher's return." Richard is a high school freshman and has the highest I. Q. of any person ever tested by the University of Chicago. Richard's father, David Williams, a combustion engineer ant a brilliant mathematician also, saic that being the father of a quiz kid has its disadvantages. ' "Richard received a $100 wa bond for each of his radio appearances," he said. "We didn't want t cash the bonds and he only gets a dollar a week allowance, so I dug down to pay his tax to the tun of S713." Relief At Last For Your Cough .

TEST YOUNG MEN FOR WAR Iowa City--Between 50 and 100 young men were to take the 3rd army-navy qualifying tests at the University of Iowa Wednesday morning. The candidates include those who will be 17 but not yet 22 by July 1, 1944. Each person is required to indicate his preference either for the army or the navy. Military scholarships may be won by 17 year olds who pass the test and who will not reach their 18th birthday before entering the army specialized training reserve program. The navy section leads to assignment in the V-12 program, purpose o£ which is to provide officers for the navy, marines and coast guard. Tests are designed to measure aptitude and general knowledge required for success in the services' college programs. The Andes mountains reach PRESS HUNT FOR BLUEBEARD Parisian Claimed to Have Killed 30 Persons London, U.R)--Paris. surete and jestapo agents turned their search or a sadistic Parisian Bluebeard who killed at least 30 persons- most of them women--to the Lyons area Wednesday following a report that his frightened wife lad been found in a hideout there. According to accounts broadcast by German-controlled French radio stations, Dr. Marcel Petiot, the mad killer of the Rue Lesuer, left Paris several days ago with his wife and 17 year old son alter police had discovered his death house near the Arc de Triomphe and set an unsuccessful trap for him there. Crime Commissioner Massey, charged with the investigation, left Paris for Lyon by automobile to question Mme. Petiot- There was no report regarding the whereabouts of the son. Meanwhile officers of the su- rete, France's Scotland yard, continued their investigation at 21 Rue Lesuer, a gloomy house surrounded by a 12-foot brick wall on the number probably was much higher. The London Daily Mall reported in a Madrid dispatch that Petiot was a close friend of Jacques Doriot, ardent French collaborationist. If true, the report would remove any suspicion that the Germans were faking reports of the crimes in order to catch a leader of the French underground. The German transocean news agency reported that a detailed examination of the home-made death chamber, where the physician gave his victims injections of a strong poison which they thought was narcotic, revealed that he cunningly had installed an optical device in the wall. While his victims writhed in death agonies, Petiot sat calmly at a writing desk in the next room and watched their contortions under the beams of 2 powerful lights. Then, in the small chamber behind bolted, double oaken doors he dissected the bodies before destroying them. Nazis Facing Disaster in Ukraine Area By DE1VITT MACKENZIE Associated Press War Analyst Hitler's great army ot the Ukraine, estimated at between 400,000 and 500,000 men, is in the clutches of far- *~ ~ ^ reaching disaster. Even though h e s a l v a g e s something from t h e wreckage, he will have suffered a terrific blow. The b a t t l e n o w raging in the mud of Russ i a's e a r l y spring is bring- IA MACKENZIE a quiet street, contrasting with Dr. Petiot's respectable middle-class menage in the bustling Rue Caumartin. Dr. Petiot, described as the 47 year old former mayor of Villn- nueve-Sur-Yonne, a town 70 miles southeast of Paris, was accused ol murdering at least 30-20 of them women--a gruesome series of killings which recalled those of Dr. Landru, who was executed in Paris more than 20 years ago for slaying a number of persons, at least 10 of them women. Eight of Petiot's victims were reported to have been men and 2 of them youths. Dr. Paul, a surete expert, said tiie remains found in the Rue Lesuer could belong to 12 or 13 persons and pointed out that a stove. in which the slvoyed after bodies Petiot were de- had first dipped them in a limepit, had been burning 40 hours preceding $5,000 a Week 'Peons' of Hollywood Rescued From Bondage Threat Hollywood, U.R -- Hollywood's $5,000-a-week "peons" were rescued from the threat of bondage Wednesday by a decision of Superior Judge Charles S. Burncll that seven years is seven years, regardless of whether the boss is angry. Beautiful Olivia DeHavilland brought about the upheaval. Burnell's decision ended the movie industry's time-honored "suspension system," by which an actor in bad grace was taken from the payroll for an indefinite period and the time added to the end of his seven-year contract. T h e judge maintained that seven years was the legal limit of a contract and that the system would amount to virtual peonage for employes, or even life bondage. Miss DcHavilland's contract, he said, was terminated as of last May 5. Months of suspensions by Warner Brothers were eliminated. "Those suspensions .were made after I refused to accept roles for ing the end of the European war appreciably nearer. The whole vast right wing of the German line has been swung round so it faces the bleak'north. In this position it's being hammered back towards Rumania with bloody losses. The Russians indicate they've killed or captured close to 100,000 nazis in the last 10 days in this region, and have taken vast booty. In some places the usually solid and stolid German troops are in panic. If there's any silver lining to the fuehrer's cloud, it's badly tarnished.

This empties into the Black Sea at Nikolayev, near the strategic port of Kherson which red forces captured Monday. Von Mannstein had intended to make a stand on the Bug in case of emergency. That's the meaning of the fierce battle now in progress at Tarnopol in pre-war Poland, at (he end of what is now the marshal's left flank. The Germans are hanging to Tarnopol for dear life to prevent that flank from being completely turned. Watch Tarnopol! The Bug now is reported In spring flood and would make a formidable defense for the nazis if von Mannstein could hold it. The Muscovites already have cut the nazi line of escape through the port of Nikolayev. and are said to have forced a crossing of the river 50 miles southeast of Vinnitsa. That looks bad for the Germans. Von Mannstein clearly recognizes the threat, if the report is true that the Hitlerites are rushing all available ships from Rumanian ports to Odessa. That presumably would mean preparations for possible evacuation of troops by sea. cither from the Dnieper bend or from the Crimea, or both. This would presage a further German withdrawal to the Dniester river--barrier to Rumania. Jlitler's Rumanian satellite reportedly has sent Prince Barbu Stirbey. former premier and onetime power behind the throne, to Cairo to sue for peace with the allies. B r i t a i n is said to have granted him passes to expedite his trip Confirmation of Slirbcy's mission jp awaited, but the report in itself is symptomatic of the feverish condition of the Balknns. which have had their fill of Hitler. Stirbey is. of course, a relic ot the past and probably doesn't represent all his people. However, the signs are that most Rumanians want to get from under the growing load of German defeat.
