It shows sample returns completely' filled out with an explanation of the figures, he says. Investment credit, one of the newer features of the tax structure, is fully explained in the new guide. It points out that a reduction in taxes paid for 1963 is based on tangible (personal property and real property acquired last year. As much as seven per cent of the cost of these items is allowed as a deduction tout the percentage varies with the useful life of .the assets, says Regier. Another feature of the guide is an explanation of how to sell a farm on installments and examples are given to help to clarify the procedure for computing taxable gain. Also an explanation of depreciation methods and the additional first year depreciation is given. Other sections of the guide cover the imiportanee of gooc records, farm business expenses, farm inventories, casualty losses and thefts, an expfana tion on completing the return and many more.

Changes Noted inScrewworm Eradication Work MISSION.— Highly successful eradication measures, cold weather and the need to con- icrve funds have prompted icrewworm eradication officials o cut the (production of sterile screwworm flies by 60%. An average of 70 million lies per week will be reared n the weeks ahead; production md been hovering near the 140 million per week mark during ;he fall. Eradication workers are confident this number will >e sufficient to adequately ;reat those areas of Texas where native screwworms can survive ehe cold temperature. During 1963, producers in L82 Texas counties reported 4,916 screwworm cases; the (previous year, 49,484 cases were detected in 242 counties. White ;his indicates a 90% decrease, officials feel reporting was much more effective than dur- ng 1962 that an even greater degree of control may have >een achieved than the totals ndicate.
