Arizona Republic, Phoenix, Thursday Morning, February 20, .__,.-. .. _ i Court Upholds Little Stories Of Interest In Phoenix Daily Life 1941 Donnell Claim JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., Feb. 19 <AP)—The state supreme court recognized Forrest C. Donnell, a Republican, as governor of Missouri today in a decision which left Democratic leaders divided over their efforts to seat Lawrence McDanicl. The court upheld Donnell's claim to the office by virtue, of his 3,613-vofc- plurality in last November's election and directed the Democrat-controlled legislature to seat him immediately. There was no ruling on a second suit by Donnell asking lor a writ of prohibition to stop a legislative committee from tieginning an actual recount of votes before seating him. Neither did the ruling go into the validity of the committee, composed of six Democrats and four Republicans, created last month to investigate Democratic charges of election fraud. In its ruling today, the court, composed of seven Democrats, is- fued a peremptory writ of mandamus against Morris E. Osburn, Democrat, house speaker, ordering him to declare the election of Donnell "who is admittedly the person having the highest number of votes on the face of the returns."

Capital gain<; and losses are classified as "short-term" (applicable to capital assets held for 18 months or less) and "long-term" (applicable to capital assets held for more than 18 months). Such gains and losses are taken into consideration in the percentages shown on the return, based upon the period of time during which the assets were held. Short-term capital losses are allowable only to the extent of short- term capital gains. However, any net short-term capital loss (not in excess of the net income for the taxable year) may be carried over to the succeeding year and applied against the short-term capital gains not already cffset by short-term capital losses in such year. The carryover is restricted to one year. In the case of a net long-term capital gain or loss r an alternative tax is imposed with respect to a gain if such tax is less than the normal tax and surtax on net income, and in the event of a loss, such alternative tax is imposed if greater than the normal tax and surtax on net income. Where a taxpayer derives a net long-term capital gain and computes his tax under section 117(c) (1), relating to alter- native taxes, the base for determining the 15 per cent limitation on the charitable contributions deduction provided by section 23(o) and the earned income credit provided by section 25(a) (3) is "net m- Whe're a taxpayer sustains a net long-term capital loss and computes his tax under section 117(c) (2), the base for determining the charitable contributions deduction is ordinary net income," that is ' net income" plus the amount of the net long-term capital loss, and the base for determining the earned income credit is "ordinary net income as adjusted for the charitable contributions deduction.
