You'll save time and effort. Treasury experts say that where a wife has income less than $500— and she and her husband are going to file on Form 1040—they'll save money by making a joint return. Husbands and wives—if their combined income was less than $5,000 —can file jointly on Form W-2, or the 1040 short or long-form. If their combined income was $5,000 or over but individually less than $5,000. they can file separately on Form W-2 or the 1040 short- form or jointly on the 1040 long- form. If they file jointly on Form W'2 or the 1040 short form, they arc allowed one deduction of about tb per cent but it is 10 per cent of their combined income. If they file separately on the 1040 long-form, with the income of each $5,000 or over, each Is allowed a SINUS, CATARRH SUFFERERS FOR MISERY DUE TO MAS At CONGESTION Supply Hushed Heic — Sufferers Rejoice Relict nt last from the torture of Binira tn«il)le, calnrrh, and hny lover due lo nmul congestion is seen today in reports or success with n formula which hns the power to reduce nasal congestion.

Finally a Wellington bomber appeared, then roared low over their heads. Prom its bomb bays came nbt death arid destruction but warm, new clothing from the American Red Cross. During the war more than 50,000 garments were dropped by bombers to isolated villages in the Balkans. In other regions transportation difficulties compelled deliveries by ox cart. Thus, by old methods and new, more than' 36,000,000 garments were distributed to civilians overseas. More than $22,000,000 worth of textiles purchased with government funds were made into Garments by ?.2FO.OOO volunteers in the 3.751 Red Cross chapters in this country. Their production included: 5,000,000 sweatters: 1,000.000 pair of socks, 750,000 lavcttes; for women and girls, 1.500.000 dresses., 2,600.000 skirts, and 1,500.000 blouses. Other items were mufflers, mittens, afghans, toddler packs, operating gowns, nightgowns, and pajamas. Program BeRiin in 1930 Distribution of these garments and other supplies overseas has been organized and supervised by American Rod Cross civilian relief workers in cooperation with the military. A foreign war relief program began in September, 1039. Since that time the major events of the war provide an excellent outline of Airier-Jean civilian relief operations in which distribution of chapter- producer'. clot hint;' played a major role— aid to the Low Countries and France: to Greece and Yugoslavia: to Finland in 1939; to China; relief, including 7,000,000 garments to the bombed - out civilians in Britain ; medical aid and 3,503,OCO garments to Russia: garments to refugees throttKhout the Middle East; assistance in Africa. Italy, Sicily, Western Europe, Norway, Finland, Poland. the Marianas, and the Philip- cines. Asked To Continue Many of the countries in which the American Red Cross had been operating asked it to continue its supplementary emergency program. The Red Cross does not attempt to meet all the basic needs of any community or country. It tries to do the best it can .within the limits of .Its budget. Operations this winter continued in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Austria', Finland, Norway, USSR, Italy, Albania, Greece, •Yugoslavia, Poland and China. Supplies valued at approximately $33,£00,000 formed, the bulk of supplies; hospital and medical supplies ac- ccunte'd for $9,000,000; the balance consisted of food, soap, and automotive equipment.

Local Chapter Is Organized For Disasters The Pampa chapter of the American Red Cross has been organized to as£ume*its responsibility for the relief of people suffering from disastrous fire, extensive train wrecks, etc. This organization is made up of following committees and chairmen. Joe Gordon, survey committee; H. M. Cone, rescue; Dr. C. E. High, medir;al aid; Rev. E. B. Bowen. shc.'- ter; Verl Hagaman, food and clothing; Frank Culberson transportation and communication; Mrs. L. K. Stout, registration and information; Huelyn Laycock. central purchasing; L. G. Langston, public information. The organization has recently been brought up to date and put in written form by Ed Weiss, Pampa chapter disaster chairman. The keynotes published by the American Red Cross midvvestern are& office, St. Louis. Mo., had this lo say about Pampa's disaster plan. "Ccnvenience is the outstanding feature which makes the new disaster plan edited by the F/ mpa chapter a model for all chapters. On its front cover arc names, addresses, and phone numbers of all committee members and of the police and fire departments ... in casn of a disaster, all one has to do to find out what buildings arc to bo used as emergency shelters is too look along the indexed tabs of the copy, to the one marked "sub-committee on shelter" . . . wording is concise and restricted to simple instruction. 1 !."

The request from the army personnel center dispensary was for 3500 washable bedroom slippers. That was Monday. Wednesday, 48 hours later, the goods were delivered and the bulk had to come from the Los Angeles fCalif.) Chapter, 700 miles away.

Unsung Heroines Added to the lengthening list of unsung heroines of global \var are 4,790 nurses who served the ill and injured of 226 Red Cross disaster relief operations on the home front during the war years. For the most part ineligible for military service, they came from all corners of the country. Some were grandmothers; some left their families temporarily to ' travel far in the desperate nurse shortage. Without fanfare all gave sure and efficient care to thousands of disaster sufferers.
