The lniern.il Revenue disclosed last week it has inserted the expense account item—line 6A—in the 1957 personal income t a x planks—the ones that are due by next April 15. It calls for stating on the front of the blank the size of any taxpayer's expense account — '.he amount if any he received Irom his employer for such diverse items as taxi fares and convention trips. A full itemized explanation must be attached as a separate sheet. Earlier Farms Confusing Confusion resulted from early Interpretations. Whom does line 6A effect Is the government opening an attack on expense accounts— considered by some as an escape loophole from high income taxes? Here, from lop revenue officials, is the meaning of 6A: —Internal Revenue is lightening its standing regulation that expense accounts must be declared-. —Line 6A is aimed primarily at taxpayers with bulgingly- suspicious expense accounts. But it AFL Delegates Vote On Blast Against Handley Rip Governor For Lack Of Action On Right To Work Bill INDIANAPOLIS (UP)'— About 1,201) state AFL convention delegates late Tuesday voted to "con- clemn" Governor .Handley blace his name high amoni "and ; Ihe list of labor's enemies i.i Indiana" (or "allowing the 'right-to-work' bill to become law without .his .signature." The action came as union leaders from throughout the state met here to merge 'the CIO and AFL on the state level. The committee which met for that specific purpose reported no progress and Dallas Sells, president of the state said voluntary merger in also is aimed at the little guy with Indiana is "dead, kaput, off." a $200 annual expense account that The slflte - have , ]ntil he never bothered to Deport. —Everyone receiving an expense account, no matter how small, will have to-keep a record of it and report it as they should have in the past. Revenue officials said failure of many taxpayers to comply with standing regulations on expanse accounts brought on line 6A. Instructions for old tax forms said: Expense accounts receipts from employers should be added to wages: legitimate expenses lor which the payments were made groups Dec. 5 to effect a voluntary merger, after which date the national CIO-AFL will perform a "shotgun wedding." The vote condemning Handley was unanimous and apparently passed with more enthusiasm than any of the other 27 resolutions. . A year ago, Handley addressed the AFL 'stale convention. But he wasn't even invited to this year's conclave. "Governor Handley led unionists to believe he was a friend of trade should be subtracted from wages: [unionists in and the result should be entered as ! tlon sald the taxpayer's income.

(International) Indiana," the resolu "Governor Handley showed his true character by al lowing the 'right-to-work' bill .to become law without his signature." The 1957 Legislature passed the controversial "right-to-work" law over strong labor opposition and Handley let it become law without his signature. The delegates also resolved to hold future conventions in cities where legislators voted against passage of the bill. But that resolution would have no effect after the group merges with the CIO next month. Carl Mullen, president of the state AFL, earlier accused two CIO officials of "bad faith" and said they were trying to block the merger. He identified the two as Ray Berndt, regional director of CIO-UAW, and Lester Thornton, CIO Steelworkers district director. Mullen demanded that the two be dropped from the merger committee. But Sells defended Berndt and Thornton and said the new committee demanded by Mullen would just have to learn the merger problems all over. Among resolutions-passed by the AFL Tuesday were those calling for reapportxMiment of the General Assembly to give-cities more representation; urging •, national legislative action to protect workers over 40 years of age, and calling for labor to carry its political action fight into non-labor groups.
