And the farmers around here- along with those over the nation- are going through their books to let Uncle Sam know how they came out money-wise in 1961. One point farmers may want to keep in mind in figuring their earnings for social security purposes is that they may be entitled to use an optional method. ( 1 ) If the gross income from agricultural self-employment is not more than $1,800, the farmer may count as his net form earnings either his actual net or two thirds of the farm gross income; ( 2 ) If the gross farm income is more than $1,800, and the net farm earnings are less than $1,200, the farmer may use either his actual net or $1,200. If the gross farm income is more than $1,800, and the net farm earnings are $1,200 or more, the farmer must use the actual amount of his net earnings. Because of the option available, self-employed farmers with gross income as low as $600 can obtain social security credit for 1961-and so build protection for themselves in their old age, or if they become disabled, and protection for their survivors in case of death. Some farm owners who receive cash-rent or crop shares from tenant farmers can get social security credit for that income. If the farm landlord ( or his agent ), under his agreement with his tenant materially participates in the production or management of production of the farm crops raised on his land, his income may be reported for social security purposes. Information regarding taxes due and tax return forms can be obtained at the Internal Revenue Office in the Post Office Building in Waterloo. To meet Thursday The Legion and Auxiliary will hold their monthly meeting Thursday Feb. 1 at 8 p. m. in the Legion Hall. Coordinator to Visit Upper Iowa Dr. Paul G. Jenson, co-ordinator of the North Central Association, will visit the Upper Iowa university campus on Tuesday, Feb. 6, it was announced today by Edward Bradley, president of the Faculty Professional club. campus fa an event which" can have important effects on that college's programs.

Aerial deer survey Now in progress An aerial deer survey is being taken by the State Conservation Commission to reveal the general trend of Iowa's deer population. Although still in the experimental stage, present plans call for the aerial deer survey to be an annual part of the Commission's deer management program if it proves to be satisfactory under Iowa conditions. Deer will be counted along transects ( flight patterns ) located in selected counties with the same transects to be flown each year in the hope that the deer population trend can be determined. The aerial survey is only one of the methods used by the Conservation Commission to determine deer populations. Each year the Commission officers send in an estimate of their deer population based on their general observations and ground counts. The aerial counts are being made from the Commission plane with Conservation Officer Bob Rollins serving as pilot-observer and Eldie Mustard, the Commission deer biologist, acting as observer. Deer are counted from an altitude of 301X400 feet. Counties in which aerial trend counts are tentatively planned in- rlude Boone, Bremer, Cherokee, Emmet, Hardini Lucus, Pottawat- • tamfe, Shelby* > and Washington.
