(AP)— Already confronted with B recommendation by coaobes that revisions be made In the football rules, the National 'Collegiate- Athletic association formally opened its 39th annual convention here'today. The football coaches, who have been meeting for two days, submitted five major rules changes to the NCAA 's rules coomuctee which will meet within a few weeks.

(AP)—Pravda declared today that Hungary must expect to pay reparations to Russia and return annexed territories to Romania and Czechoslovakia. A Hungarian delegation is here awaiting armistice terms. The Commuqist party newspaper said Soviet policy assured the Magyars of "conditions for the restoration of national, political and economic independence." "Hungary had less claim for understanding aid from the United Nations than any other country because she was the last and most stubborn sattelite of Germany," Pravda said. "Nevertheless the Soviet government has given Hungary a chance to redeem herself." The editorial added that the Hungarian people "will receive the opportunity to carry out elections to a provisional national assembly on a democratic basis to express their will and decide their fate." STRICTNESS BROUGHT NEW WORD Captain Boycott, a land agent in Ireland, treated his tenants with such severity that thejf retaliated by refusing to work fbr him and allowing no one else to do so.

Havana, Jan. 12. (AP)—If baseball siuTflves new-war restrictions, (3uba will be more heavily represented in the major and minor leagues than ever before, with about 50 players trying for places. But first they must learn how the new draft regulations apply to them. Last year, the Cubans were given exemptions from the draft for three months or more. About 35 of the '50 hopefuls will report for spring training with the Senators and the Washington farm system, all products of Scout Joe Cambrida who has been scouring the Cuban professional baseball league currently operating. Number 1 iContianed From Page One) venlent to file a final return now. Suppose you don't know what your 1944 income was, and are waiting for the exact figures. If so, you may have some other tasks to perform January 15. Read on: Being one of the 15,000,000, you probably gave the government an estimate of yoiu- 1944 tax last April 15. If for .'jome reason you haven't filed such a declaration, it is due January 15. Use Form 1040 ES, and make the closest estimate you can Under the circumstances youll have to pay the whole estimated tax in one lump. This will hit a lot of farmers because they were not required to» file declarations last AprU. If you have already filed a declaration, ybu can amend it January 15. Use the same form, writing "Amended" at the top. Amending yom- estimate is often a good idea— if the first guess was wrong- though it's not compulsory unless you underestimated your tax by '20 per cent or more. For example, suppose Mr; Jones believed in AprU that his tax would be $400. Actually it tw-ned out to be $481. He missed it by more than 20 per cent, and must file an amended declaration to avoid a penalty. Now here's a techmcal point: the law says if a person estimated, his 1944 tax last April on the basis of his 1943 Income (but on the basis of 1944 rates and exemptions which were in effect in April), he doesn't have to pay a penalty even if he underestimated by more than 20 per cent. Anothei task: if you filed your declaration last April you may have been making quarterly payments in connection with it. If so, the final payment is due Jantiary 15. If you are amending your declaration now, this will change the amount of this final payment. But — as said before —you don't have to do any of those things if you can file your final return by January 15 instead of March 15, and pay- whatever tax is due to be attached. W. L. White to Address Press Association Wichita, Kas.. Jan. . 12.

(AP)—Ed Dudley,' Atlantic City, N. J., president ot the Professional Golfers association gave 30 minutes inst^-uc- tion yesterday to Mrs. George Zaharias gnd'then watched her breeze over the Phoenix country club com-se in a record breaking 67 while he was taking a 69—two under men's par. , Mrs. Zaharias, the Mildred (Babe) Didrick^on of Olympic ' renown, carded the lowest score yesterday in the pro-.amateur event preceding the start tdday of the $5,000 72-holo Phoenix; open.

Harold (Jug) McSpaden, Sanfordi; Maine, defending Phoenix champlCKi, didn't turn in a card. BjTon Nelson, Toledo, Ohio, shot a 69. Mrs. Zaharias-, the wife of a Los Angeles ^wrestler and golfer, credited Dtjdley for her remarkable card. Itv was her best competitive golf score. "I'd never hit the ball so far and straight ? until Dudley showed me what was wrong with my stance;" Babe declared. "All my drives were from 260 to 270 yarcfc and they were boring right down the middle of the fairway." > • The ^be gained athletic fame first m the track and basketball world and later turned seriously to golf In October, 1937. + 4- + The WAR TODAY + + + Threatlened Secession Of Ruihenia Stirs Czechs Londoni Jan. 12 (AP)—Soviet Russia appears likely to inherit from Czechoslovakia a considerable slice of that republic's former territory— the area known as Ruthenia or Car- l'atho-Ru$.s!a, plus a .strip of Slovakia in vthe high Tatry group of the Carpathian mountains. Both wbuld become part of the Soviet Ukraine—unless President ]^duard ifenes and his Czech gov- emment-ih-exile can prevent it. Apparently in order to forestall this move,; the Czechoslovak government at -present 'is preparing to move into ;K0ssa (Kosice) in eastern Slovakia jwhen the Germans are driven out. In the meantime Benes has sent ?rantisek Nemec, his appointee ^ governor of sub-Carpathian Riithenia, to Moscow, in the hope of preventing any Rutheniaa secession move. The Rutnenlan Communist leader Ivan Petru^hka, who at one time was a member bf the Czech cabinet, presented th$ secession demand to Benes. He^dcclared a plebiscite had resulted in' an overwhelming popular demand that Ruthenia become part of thj Soviet Ukratae. Paulett^ Recovering From Operation Santa Monica, Calif., Jan. 12.

PIC TONIGHT & Saturday "SWING YOUR i^ARTNER" : —^Plns— ^^LAZING FRONTIER" SUN.-MONi-'nJES.— "ALLERGIC TO LOVE" —And— "UNCERTAIN GLORY" This qiiestioii of Nipponese resistance cropped up last night when your correspondent subjected hun- self to a hot barrage of questions at a big gathering of enUsted men and WACS at MltcWel Field. They asked: "Will the' Japs' have to be beaten militarily before they are out?" That's a tough one because we don't know the limits of Japapese resistance,-especially of the civilian population", to the terrors and privations of, totfcl war. Indeed, the Japanese .^ove^nment itself can't know how. much ;the people can take, for only now Is Nippon beginning to got an. idea of total war through oiir bombings of the home land. ; . . The vise of war will tighten rapidly on them now- Our .possession of bases in the Philippines will multiply the difficulties of the mikado's people a hundred-Jold' for the bombings will Intensify and the Allies will clamp <a ti^t aerial and naval blockade icross Japan's lifelines. NipfHjn will know terrors and privations which s?ie has been dishing out to others but hasn't experience-J herself m modein times. However,' I think Japanese people are likely (0 follow their emperor—who-is lif-eraily a god to them —so long as he calls them. That means so. long as the govenunent VMEN WOWLlka.

ARCHER GO S.rCORNERSQ 'JARt-PHONE ^04J It strikes me that the govern- meht will be Influenced greatly by what happens on the continent. The Japanese are powerfully installed in Manchukuo and In most of China's developed territory. They have, many resources there, including- large war industries. Recently they have been moving some of their home Industries to Manchukuo: lb cap all this, there are on the; continent some 2,000,000 Japanese soldiers who have dug themselves in like gophers during their long occupation. It's difficult to escape the thought thalt the war lords might decide to make a final stand on the contl- neiit, even if things get too hot for them to hold out in Japan. I don't adv&nce that as a probability, but it siirely is a possibihty. Undoubtedly much may depend on whether Russia comes into the war against Japan. Should that happen it would, of course, be a body blow to &ny scheme for holding on the continent. As things now stand, the Chinese are so weak militarily that they are hanging on by their teeth, and:.the Allies have a long way to go before they can establish a fighting > machine in China capable of ousting the' Invaders. In. any event, we certainly must plan on having to beat the Japanese militarily before they will quit. It would be foolish to assume otherwise.

The ruddy-faced Knudson, who gave up his post as head of General Motors to become a production "bottleneck buster," told the house military committee "it would be bad" if the army had to accept men who refused to work in the war effort. Knudsen's testimony gave impetus to a move developing within the committee to substitute for the work corps section of the legislation a provision making unauthorized job shifters or men who refuse to work at the direction of a draft board liable to the civil penalties of the selective service act. The maximum penalty under this act is a $10,000 fine and five years imprisonment. up, assembled all the frazzled flap- Jacks they coud find and delivered them on schedule.
