Feb. 23.—O'Pi— Four prisoners, two of them ex- prizefighters, early today made an unsuccessful attempt to break out of the county jail. They pounced on two prison guards while the jail employes came. to the prison cell block on the fifth 'floor to collect breakfast dishes. The would-be jail breakers were listed as follows: C. ' J. Vyse, 25, and Charles E. Townsend, 26, both ex-prizefighters of Michigan, held here for Michigan postal authorities. Arnold Foreman, 22, Mexia, Texas, held on a charge of impersonating an army officer. Fred Rohmor, 19, San Antonio. awaiting transfer to the state penitentiary after conviction on a state charge here. Using socks filled with soap, the ^prisoners beat the two guards, one of them a man of 02, and threatened to kill them. ; One of the prisoners grabbed Mrs. .Henry Moya, women's matron' and •forced her into the elevator. IWhen 'the elevator came to a stop the prisoners found themselves cpfronted by a loyal gang of trusties, armed with butcher knives taken from the kitchen, near by. It was at this point that Mrs. Moya started a plea that convinced the would-be jailbrcakers of the fu- ';tlHty of their scheme to obtain freedom. ^» Collaborationists Sentenced to Death WARSAW, Feb. 23—W 3 )—Special courts have sentenced 10 men and a woman to death for collaboration .with'nazis during the occupation of Poland. • The group, convicted yesterday, •included former German police sergeant Heinrich Kostlcr, who admitted killing 800 persons during liquidation of the ghetto in Czcstochowa. •tT- ,- A . _i. j-oii ,— ^ •* A^jfc ^feft 1 * K " *~ .'. tv J By JAMES MARLO1V WASHINGTON. Fob. 23— (W— Your exemptions. They're important. You'll save money by being cnreful about them when you fill out your 1915 income tax return.

Yon can claim as a depl'ident any close relative of nny nt;e—whether capable of self-support or not—who received more than half his support from yon in 1945 and whose income in 10-15 was less than $550.

You cannot claim as a dependent •anyone — even though receiving more than half his .support from virii—wlio had income of $500 or over If a child was born to you in 1945. even as late in the year as Dec. 31. or if a person dependent upon you died anytime in 1945. even a;; far back as Jan. 1, 10-S5, you can claim him as a dependent for the full year. A dependent must be related as follows: Your child or his descendants (your m'andchildrcni; a stepchild but not his descendants: a legally adopted child: a bro; her. sister, step-brother, step-sister, your parents, Grandparents or other ancestors, your step-father, step-mother —uncle, aunt, nephew, niece by blond—and your in-laws. When yen list your exemptions on Form W-2 the withholding deceint. or on the 1040 short-form, you don't do any figuring. With both those forms you find your tax in a tax table. It's when you tackle the 1040 long- form—where you have to figure your mvn tax and can't use a table— that you must do arithmetic with each of the $500 exemptions you claim. Here's a simple exemple of exemptions; You. married, have two children. One going to grammar school, the •older one goine to hi.2h school. You're paying all the school, clothing, lodging and other expenses of the two children. But in 1945 the older child sold newspapers and earned $510. He turned the $510 over to you to help pay his expenses at school and home. You can't claim him as an exemption. Because he earned over $500, he has to file his own income tax return, claiming one exemption: his son. Opposite Bomb Revealed HOUSTON, Feb. 23— VP>— A third secret weapon with which Germany had hoped to wlft the war, taut which- Hitler never deceived—a device directly opposite to the atomi: bomb—was described to 340 Lutherans of the Missouri Synod by Dr. J. W. Behnken of CfclSftgo, president of the Missouri Syhdd, at a $5,000 benefit banquet, for the Lone Star Wftlther League camp. Doctor Behnken. who jiist returned from a seven-week tour of Europe, said that the weapon freezes everything with a radius of five milc.-s, instead jf burning everything as the atom bomb does. "The man yho invented this weapon was persuaded by a fellow churchman not to release its dread- lul secret," Doctor Gehnken said. Doctor Behnken added that the inventor is now in the hands of the Russians. "I hops that his inventive genius is being putt o constructive use, and that the Russians will not be able to wrest from him the secret he 1 kept from the Germans," Doctor Behnken observed; "Fantastic, you say. So was the atom bomb," the whitehaired leader of over 1,000,000 Lutherans de- Rare Species oi Cattle Entered in Livestock Show EL PASO, Feb. 23—A rare species of cattle, the Brahma s blended breed, has been ' entered In the Southwestern Livestock Show.

He is a newcomer in the Southwest, and he Is trying to interest Southwestern ranchers in this breed. The Southwcs'crn Livestock Show will open March 26 in the Coliseum building.; in El Paso and continue clared. "Even in this war, God did not relinquish his sovereignty. When he wanted to stop Hitler, he preyed on the consciousness of an inventor." Doctor Behnken said he had told the story of his .findings to President Truman, and was called back to Washington to repeat the story to military officials. The former pastor of Trinity Lutheran church here issued a stern warning that if conditions continue as they have in the past, the future IE not bright for America.

The press therefore asked whether such young couples could lie mar- i ried. .At. a press conference for Japanese rev.-ortcrs, .a representative of Allied headquarters gave this answer : There is no poliey against, such marriages but, as in Germany, the approval of a man's senior officer must be obtained. As far as headquarters is aware,, no such situation has arisen. This morning's edition of Yomi- uri-Hochi commented: 'The cursed fire of the war has long ceased and now American boys •and Japanese girls are presenting friendly scenes on the streets, on railway station platforms, in rjublic parks, theaters and many other places. "And some of them are so dcenly in love as to be desirous of becoming united with each other. Many mothers cf Japanese girls often send inquiries to the (Japanese) central liaison office, asking if their daueh- ters may be authorized to be united with GI boys."
