Capital gain 5 : 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, 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 Il7(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 income". Where 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. o Fugitive Pair Is Sentenced John L. Hicks, 21 years old, and William T. Morris, 19, Phoenix criminals who escaped from an Arizona prison farm last September 23, have been committed to the Arkansas State Penitentiary for long terms for a series of offenses in that state, J. B. Mackey, chief of the local police identification bureau, was notified yesterday. The Federal Bureau o- Investigation informed the identification head Hicks was sentenced to 12 years,, and Morris to 10 years in the penitentiary February 1. The pair was convicted of burglary and grand larceny in Paris, Ark., and also wanted for assault on a Bonneville, Ark., jail guard with intent to kill, and escape from the same jail. They finally were captured December 9 in Tucumcari, N. M., after assertedly stealing an automobile and forging a check in Santa Fe. N. M. The two youths escaped from the Arizona prison farm near Florence in a prison truck later found abandoned near Phoenix. At the time. Hicks was serving three to six years for forgery and Morris, one to three years for burglary. Police Radio Work Is The story of the gradual-nip.: together of what is now a'S* police radio network coveringaJL' of the state was to!d fflemi«r^ the Phoenix Hiram Club by Weyland U.

"Obsolete", Says Chief : "The Gamewell system," Qy Holtzendorff said, "was purchased 25 years .ago at a cost of $18,000 instead of $50,000 and had become obsolete. All but four phones were removed because the radio ha taken its place. By abolishing it the city will save $1,500 a year ft cost to keep the system la operation, i "It was just like a car purchased 25 years ago.
