flPage Four Arizona Republic, Phoenix, Saturday Morning, February 15, 1941, Aid To Knox Is Appointed WASHINGTON, Feb. 14—(AP) President Roosevelt today named Jlalph Austin Bard, a director of the American Shipbuilding Company and long-time friend of Frank Knox, navy secretary, to •be assistant secretary of the navy the post which the President himself filled during the last war. The White House annpnnce- mcnt that the nomination of Bard, 56-year-old Ohicago businessman and a Republican, had been sent to the senate for «. confirmation disclosed that . Lewis Oompton had resigned as assistant secretary January 10. Gov. Charles Edison of New Jersey at once announced he would ask Compton to become New Jersey state finance commissioner. Compton, long an associate of Edison, was named to the navy post while Edison was secretary. Compton Has Been III Compton's resignation, the White House announced, was accepted yesterday and Bard's name was sent, to the senate this morning. Compton has been ill with intestinal influenza and the White ZHouse 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. Post Left Unfilled Today's nomination left unfilled the post of assistant secretary of navy for air, for which the navy asked a supplemental salary appropriation Wednesday, and a similar post in the war department which army officials have recently urged be revived. Both assistant secretaryships for-air have been vacant since 1933. Bard, president of the Wahl Eversharp Pen Company and director of the Libby-Owens-Ford Glass Company, was Cleveland.

Your Income Tax 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 clearly 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 revenue. 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 gross income of the person operating it consists of the gross profits on sales, plus any Income from investments and incidental or outside . operations or sources. The income tax return must show the exact condition of the business — gross sales, purchases, and the cost of the goods sold, and the inventories at the beginning end 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 Commodity Credit Corporation shall, at the option of the taxpayer, be considered as income and shall be in- jeluded in the gross income for the riaxable year in which they were iTeceived. 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 internr'. revenue approves a change to a different method. Net income is the gross income less the deductions allowed by law. The long-continued and varying experience of the bureau of internal revenue shows that numerous errors are made by taxpayers in their Income tax returns due to their failure to understand clearly what deductions from gross income and what credits against net income are allowable. The taxpayer, in his own Interest, is urged to read over the Instructions on the forms until he understands them, before he makes out his return. Legal deductions include business and professional expenses, such as salaries, pensions and bonuses to employees, taxes' losses, interest, bad debts, depreciation, depletion, contributions, and similar 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 mil tax P ° Se ° f com P utin g the nor- Six Students Win Ratings Six students received excellent or superior ratings in the third annual band and orchestral instrument contest held- in the Phoenix Union High School Auditorium Thursday evening.

Arrest Provides Poser For Law Robert William Girton, 28 years old, colored, a Phoenix garage employee, was arrested yesterday on a petty theft charge and now county prosecutors can proceed to iron the kinks out of a legal poser.
