Highest amount of state inheri* tance tax assessment was $15,274.20 against the estate of Lillian Oeelan. Under State law, where a surviving heir is a wife or husband, there is an exemption of $45,000. Whefe there are children, the exemption is $15,000 for each child.

Just ask yourself: which cars would normally be in the top 3 of America's best sellers? The well-known smaller cari—naturally. ' But which cars are in that Big 3? Two of the well-kuown smaller cars, and Buick— for over two years running now. That means Buick prices are well within reach of more and more people—thanks primarily to the budget-tagged Buick SI J EOAJL, like the one pictured above. And that's tho whole point of the matter. For this low-priced Buick SPECIAL— so close in cost to the smaller cars — is so much more automobile for the money, it's the stand-out buy of its Geld. It's the biggest of the Big 3 in power tlirill, in comfort, in size and breadth and luxury and sheer readability. It's the biggest of the Big 3 in the solidity and softness of its all-c'oil- spring ride-in the sweep of its styling-and in the pure tlirill of its performance. For where else but in Buick can you get the nimble getaway, tho gae. saving mileage, the electrifying switch-pitch action and the absolute smoothness of the new Variable Pitch Dynaflow?* Come in to see and drive the biggest bundle of high-powered beauty and energy ever offered iu Buickj lowest-priced Series.

By George Reploglo, Field Representative of the Fort Dodge Social Security District Office Attention has been called to n responsibility under the social security law which must be met before the end of January by every farm operator who paid as much as $100 cash wages to any one agricultural employee in 1955. I shall describe the form he must use to report the wages and remit the social security tax. For this purpose use Form 943 "Employer's Tax and Information Return for Agricultural Employees." Insofar as possible, the District Director of Internal Revenue mailed this form to agricultural employers in the area serviced by his district office. If you are required to report cash wages paid to your agricultural employees in 1955 and did not receive a form or have lost the one you received ask the District Director of Internal Revenue for a copy. The Three "Musts" There are three important entries you should make on. this form. First, sign and date it, and give your title—that is, owner, president, partner, member, etc. of the agricultural enterprise. Second, be sure to enter each of your employees' social security account numberS correctly, also his full name and the total of taxable cash wages paid to him during the year. It is best to copy the number and his name directly from his social security card. This is important in order that the employee's taxable cash wages can be credited to the right social security account. In case it is impossible to obtain his social security number, write "Unknown" and enclose a sheet of paper showing the employee's name and address. Third, enter the amount of the total taxable cash wages you paid during 1955 to all of your farm employees, counting only the employees to whom you paid $100 or more in cash wages. Multiply the total " of these cash wages by 4 per cent and enter this .amount. If you have been required to make one or more deposit amounts of social security taxes with the Internal Revenue Service during the year subtract those amounts from the total tax, attach depositary receipts, Form 450, and enter the amount of the : balance of tax due and remit the social , security tax. K , • Identification Number One thing more. To help the x Government keep records, every employer who is required to report wages for employees and pay the social security tax should secure an identification number. Do not confuse this number with the number on your own social security card which you will use to report your net earnings for your own and your family's old- age and survivors insurance protection. If you do not have an employer's identification number, get Form SS-4 from the District Director of Internal Revenue or your social security district office. • Fill it in promptly and send it to the District Director of Internal Revenue. This should be done at once in order that you will receiye your identification number in time to enter it on your return. *New Advanced Variable Pitch Du to the only Duiutflow Buick builtutodff.
