EAR FOR MUSIC is not what inspired "Calamity Jaw's" owner to provide the horse with a transistor radio. Bells, firecrackers and «hotgunblasts are played over the radio to accustom the horse to loud noises which it is likely to hear during a parade. Six weeks' training are required to ready the animal for parade duty. FACTS Q —The exemption I claimed for my uncle is being disallowed. Can I talk to anyone else about this besides the agent who examined my return? A — Notify the examining agent that you do not agree with his disallowance of the exemption you claimed and request that a district conference be arranged.
