Compton has been ill with intes- •'tinal influenza and the White ^"House announcement said the President had wanted to wait until he had recovered. Bard's nomination came as a surprise to naval circles. In fact, few except intimate friends had known of Compton's resignation, although it had been' previously reported he might leave Washington to join Edison in the New Jersey state administration. i Post Left Unfilled i Today's nomination left unfilled j the post of assistant secretary of i navy for air, for which the navy ; asked a supplemental salary ap-; propriation Wednesday, and a sim- | ilar post in the-war department which army officials have recently urged be revived.

NO. 11 Gross Income, Net Income, And Surtax Net Income In computing a federal income tax, the taxpayer is confronted with the problem of ascertaining, (1) his gross income, (2) his net income, and (3) his surtax net income. The instructions which accompany the forms dearly and explicitly set out how this -is done. If, after reading them carefully, the taxpayer does not understand them, he should consult the nearest collector of internal jevenue. . Gross income, generally, is all income derived in any taxable year from any source whatever, unless specifically exempt, by law. In any usual business, the gfoss income of the. ; person operating -it consists of the gross profits on sales, plus any Income from investments and incidental or outside 'operations or his wil sources. The income tax return street, must show the exact condition of the business—gross sales, purchases, and the cost of the goods sold, and the inventories at the beginning and end of each taxable year. In the case of professional men— a lawyer, a physician, an architect, a surgeon, a dentist, a clergyman, a writer, or any other—the gross income must include all fees, salaries, and compensation of any kind received for professionad services. Amounts received from the Com- tnodity Credit Corporation shall, at •the option of the taxpayer, be considered as income and shall be in- Jjduded in the gross income for the ^taxable year" in which they were -received. If the option was exercised for any taxable year which began in 1939, it shall be adhered to with respect to all subsequent taxable years unless the commis- Isoner of intern:'. revenue approves a change to a different method. Net income is the gross incorm less the deductions allowed by law The long-continued and varying ex perience of the bureau of interna revenue show's that numerous er rors are made by taxpayers in thei: income tax returns due to thei: failure to understand clearly wha deductions from gross income am •what credits against net income ar< allowable. The taxpayer, in his own interest, is urged to read over th instructions on the forms until h understands them, before he makes ! out his return. Legal deductions in- j dude business and professional expenses, such as salaries, pensions, and bonuses to employees, taxes, losses, interest, bad debts, depreciation, depletion, contributions, and eimilar items definitely set out in the instructions. An earned income credit of 10 per cent of the earned net income, not in excess of 10 per cent of the net income, is allowed, in addition to the personal exemption and credit for dependents, if any for the purpose of computing the nor- THfll "tflX. Surtax net incom» is the balance "after deducting exemptions and ^u- Jl i s ,"" om tf ie net income. From this balance deduct the earned i™ come credit and other specified -.atems-on which the normal tax of Jour per cent i^ computed.

Arrest Provides Poser For Law Robert William Girton, 28 years ild, colored, a Phoenix garage em- iloyee, was arrested yesterday on a letty theft charge and now county prosecutors can proceed to iron the kinks out of a legal poser. Girton, a resident of the St. Louis iotel,- Sixth and 'Jefferson streets, s charged in East Phoenix Precinct Justice Court with stealing a pair of eyeglasses valued at $20.75 from his wife, Janie, 309 West Lewis .reel. Arizona law. said Elbert R. Thurman, assistant 'county attorney, gives the husband sole authority to dispose of the community property, , and the question which must be decided is whether the glasses are community property. Defense Buying Policy Changed Thompson, 17-year-old Glendale boy critically injured in an automobile accident Thursday night, was reported improved last night in St. Joseph's Hospital. Thompson suffered head injuries, a broken left leg and arm when the car in which he was riding, driven by Everett Hawkins, 16, route 11, box 107, overturned on Dobbins road. FEES collected during last month in the office of Roger G. Laveen, county recorder, from the filing of instruments, totaled 53,858.20, according to a report on file with the county board of supervisors. APPOINTMENT of Harold L.

Froiseth, constructing quartermaster, said tonight. "You can tell anyone who says anything to the contrary he's full of bologna," he said. Postponement Asked His statement followed a request by Representative Johnson of Oklahoma that movement of the troops be postponed because he said "adequate" facilities had not been constructed at the camp. Thomas S. Byrne, general manager for the contractors, Taylor, Byrne, and Briggs, joined the major in saying facilities of the camp will be ready on time. "Building construction will be completed within a week," said J. O. Taylor, general manager of this phase of the project. The contractors have designated four zones for "must" completion by February 23, date set for transfer of the first 1,500 troops from Fort Sill, "and they'll be ready," Byrne said. Other Schedules Set Other necessary zones have been ordered completed by February 28, WASHINGTON G ° Supervision of defense buying policy was centralized today under Donald M. Nelson, director of purchases, in a revision of procedure approved by the office of production management. Actual buying will continue to be done by the army and navy but Nelson was given authority to pass on all contracts over $500,000. William S. Knudsen, production director, exercised such authority heretofore and although Nelson was his director ol purchases it was contended by some officials that Nelson had had little actual power over the contracts. Before becoming a Sl-a-year man last year, Nelson was an executive of Sears, Roebuck and Company when 10,000" troops" of the "45th are to be moved here. Remaining zones are to be finished by March 7, date set for moving the remaining 5,000 soldiers from Fort Sill. The zone to be occupied by the service command regiment will be accepted tomorrow afternoon by the army. Major Froiseth will sign — j over the zone with Lt. Col. Charles . . M. Kemp, acting camp executive officer, accepting it for the army. o TOO LATE TO CLASSIFY , FOH HKNT: Clean '6-room unfurnished house. 926 East Garfield.
