LIFE Seattle 4, Wash. (Editor's Note: This is the second of 12 stories explaining who has to do what about his income taxes.) • » * s By JAMES MARLOW WASHTNOtTON, Feb. 19 — UP>— Generally, taxpayers are divided into two classes: Those who make under or over $5,000. Those who made less than $5,000 in 1945 won't have to figure their tax.- They'll use Form W-2, the withholding receipt, or the 1040 Short-Form. Those who made $5,000 or over will have to use the 1040 Long- Form and do their own figuring. There's an explanation of the forms and who can use them. Take Form W-2 first: This is tlie receipt, about the size of a bank-check, which a boss gives to a worker to show the money earned in 1945 and the tax withheld from his wages or salary. To use it: 1. Your gross income for the year —that is, total income, not just how much was left after paying expenses—must be under $5,000. 2. If you had income in addition to your wages, that income must not have been more than $100, and the total income must be under $5,000. 3. Your ^income must have been derived, from wages, salary, dividends or interest. Note the kind of income well. Note this, too: <If your deductions for 1945—such as medical expenses; charitable contributions, and so on—were more than 10 percent of your income—don't use Form W-2. You'll lose money. Use Form 1040. Answer a few simple question's on the Form W-2 receipt, send it to your internal revenue collector, and be sure you don't .send any money with it. If you still owe him any tax, he'll notify you and then you pay him. If you've been taxed too much, he'll send you a refund. Now take the 1040 Short-Form. (Form 1040 lias four pages. 'Used one way it is the Short-Form. Used another way, it is the Long-Form). Using 1040 as a Short-Form, you generally deal only with the first page. There you write some facts and figures about 'yourself — such as name, number of dependents—and the wages, salary or other income DR. L. J. ZACHRY OPTOMETRIST First National Bank Bldg.

When you do that, look at the table on the back to find your tax. It shows the tax on income up to $5,000. The Short-Form can be used by anyone with income under -$5,000 from any source. Remember this, too: People using Form W-2 or the 1040 Short Form don't list deductions, such as for medical expenses or union dues. Don't use Form W-2 or the 1040 Short-Form if you have deductions of more than 10 percent. Use the 1040 Long-Form. •Now take the 1040 Long-Form. You have to use this and figure your own tax if your income was $5,000 or over, whether from wages or any other source. If you have to use this form, take a flat minimum deduction of $500 for expenses, even though those expenses were far less than $500. And you don't have to itemize your deductions when you claim that flat $500. If your actual 'expenses were more than $500, you can claim as much as those expenses were. (Tomorrow: Who can use Form W-2, a detailed explanation.) Bevin Denies Charges Made By Yugoslavia LONDON, Feb. 19.—(^)—Foreign Secretary.Ernest Bevin denied officially yesterday that Polish troops serving under British command in northern Italy were moving toward the Yugoslav border and were a threat to peace. Yugoslav memorandum, presented ):y Russia Saturday to the United Nations security council, made the charges. Eevin replied in a 500- word letter to Secretary General Trygve Lie of the United Nations, declaring: 'If the Yugoslav government believed the charges in their memorandum to be well founded, their proper course was to bring them to my notice through the diplomatic channel. "Instead the question has been brought to the security council by the Soviet government with a sur- yrisinlg reference to the matter as constituting -a possible future threat to peace. "The Yugoslav government's statement that the Polish forces are in close touch with Yugoslav dissent elements in Italy, and they are giving these elements material support, appears to be based on rumor. "I have no information to confirm these rumors and I cannot take my cognizance of suqh reports until an indication is given that they are supported by confirmatory evidence." The Yugoslav memorandum was distributed to security council mem,* bers on the last day of their ses-- 3ion by l?he Soviet delegate, AndraJ Vlshinsky. It was not lodged as an official complaint calling for action by the council.

Leaves From a Correspondent' Life Notebook By HAL BOYLE NEW DELHI,, Feb. 19. Sometime when I have ifcore leisure for the serious things that iii- tetest me i want to write an exhaustive thesis, on animal life in hotel rooms around the world. It will probably be called "Fauna in Temporary Lodgings in Both Hemispheres." In an ordinary American hotel you can bunk down for .the night feeling sale from any unusual visitors from the animal, mineral or vegetable kingdoms. Not so elsewhere / on this cozy globe. You have strange encounters with all breeds of mankind's little furred and feathered friends. In Casablanca it was bedbugs— millions of them, thankfully swarming over me as if the Red Cross had sent me over as their private bfobd bank. In Algiers, one of my visits back from the warn-out an incredible thing happened: Every night promtply at 6:30 a single moth would rise out of my clothes and flutter away. On the sixth straight night this had happened I put my book down at 6:25 and vigorously beg-in beating my pants legs, my shirt, my necktie and my socks and stamped both feet vigorously. As it hit 6:30 a bedraggled moth rose laborously out of my garments and flew away. He was the last one apparently, us no others appeared in the next twelve days. I never was able to locate the source of supply. In Naples it was fleas—big broad- jumping, gouging louts that bit for fun as well as food. In France it was mice. In.Belgium it was lice. In Hong Kong it was rats.
