By next Monday night, the total of simple returns filed may ,. reach 5,000,000. Information reaching the Treasury from regional collection offices indicated that approximately half of the persons eligible to use the simple form were doing so. It can be used by anyone whose gross income was not more than §3,000 and was derived from salaries, wages, dividends, interest, rent, annuities or royalties. In many cases, a persons eligible to use the simple form could save a few dollars by figuring out the regular blank. In other cases, the reverse was true. Using the simplified blank, the taxpayer need only write his name, address, income, dependent credit and amount of tax-. The tax owed is shown in a table on the back of the blank. 's NewSimplifiedlncome Tax Blanks^reBeing Used By Thousands Col. Gillies Is Missing Col. John A. Giiiies, Santa Fe railway executive who was on special Army duty, is missing after an airplane flight Feb. 28 and "possibly perished," the War department has notified his family at Amarillo. Col. Gillies, general manager of the Santa Fe Western lines and vice president and general manager of the Panhandle and Santa Fe, was called into service in October, 1941. He was stationed in Iran as head of an American military mission. Bom In Canada "Ke was superintendent of the Slaton division beginning in 1928, and lived . there before being transferred to Colorado in the Colorado division. He became assistant general manager at La Junta, Colo., that year and then went to the Eastern lines at Topeka, returning as general manager at Amarillo July 1, 1939. When named Slaton superintendent he was the youngest man ever . to hold that post on the system •^He was born in Canada in 1889 educated in Canada, Puerto Rico and the United States and was employed with the Colorado Fuel and Iron company as an engineer Last October he was commissioned a colonel in the Army engineering corps and was sent to Iran. -larncdall oil 12 Chrysler 54 Cont Oil Del 13 Curtis; Wright _ 18 Freeport Sulph — 1 Gen Elec . 5; Gen Motor 86 Goodyear < Greyhound , 5 Houton Oil i Int Harvester 15 Mid Cont Pet 7 Ohio Oil . 5 Packard 11 Pan-Am Airways „ 4 Panhandle P and R 2 Penney 3XD Radio n Sears Roebuck 25 Shell Union OU ___ 3 Socony Vac 119 . - - • 27 SO NJ 62 Stone and Webster 3 Tei Co 31 Tex Gulf Prod S Tex Gulf Sulph 8 Tex Pac C and O __ 6 US Rubber 3 US Steel 40 WU Tel 5 Jap Air Superiority (Continued From Page One) command because of ill health, has just returned to Washington His statement was the first offi- - cial exposition of Japan's Western Pacific victories. It was a recital of almost constant defeats, but Hart, eyes flashing and head held high over his tali, old-fashioned stiff collar, told it with proud emphasis on the Asiatic fleet's accomplishments against overwhelming- odds. "The American Asiatic fleet has been involved in the loss of a campaign," he said. "But the war continues and much of that fleet, with what is now a veteran personnel, remains to assist in carrying it on." . Losses Blamed On Plant Air superiority, Hart said, enabled the enemy to sink the only Allied capital ships in Asiatic waters, Britain's Repulse and Prince of Wales. Air power also made it possible, he said, for the enemy to destroy Allied naval bases, thereby compelling those forces to retreat ever southward in search of bases "reasonably secure." And he told how the enemy found out, by aerial reconnaisance, what American ships were doing, and how those ships had to operate almost constantly against enemy airplanes as well as surface vessels. Another factor which hampered effective Allied naval action, Hart disclosed, was the necessity of convoying reinforcements into areas to be defended. A total of ten convoys went into Singapore alone he said. Power Was Reduced "In consequence, it was. except in the later stages of the campaign, difficult to maintain surface ship concentrations to use in directly opposing the enemy's advancing forces." "Ho%vever, as the enemy's advancing progressed, his distances from bases and the length of communication lines increased. There was a consequent reduction in his power, irrespective of the size of his forces. "It was during these later stages that most of the combat involving Allied cruisers and destroyers took place, and the dsmage to the enemy was probably increased in consequence. Did Much Damage "In the end, it amounted to just that—doing as much damage to the enemy as possible, since he was able to retain the initiative throughout, and was always able to dispose forces superior to our own. ''The enemy continued 3iis control of the air throughout and all of the fighting in which the Allied cruisers and destroyers engaged was done in the.face of powerful Japanese naval air forces." In summarizing the expense of ths Japanese victory. Hart said '•the enemy ha-; captured a vast territory and it is a rich country," Market Reports The Nation Over Spotlight Stocks. * NEW YORK, March 11 Ifi —Sales, doting price and net change ot the tlft«n nrost active stocks today: Net Sales Clo<e Socony-Vac 11.90C 6U — 3 ,i Genera!

Lubbock Woman Is Awarded Damages Judgment for 57,500 was awarded Mrs. Lillian McCiellan of 2106 Twentieth street by a district court jury in Colorado Springs Colo., for injuries she suffered in an automobile accident near Pueblo last July 26, the Associated Press reported. She was riding with her husband, Elmo R. McCIellan, when their car collided head-on with another driven by Fred Lange, defendant in the case. Lange lives in Pueblo. Mrs. McCIellan sued for S10,- 000. Lange testified the accident happened in a dense fog. The McClellans were accompanied by Lee Bedford, 32, also of Lubbock. Mrs. McCIellan suffered fractures of both legs, one arm and her jaw. The men were not seriously hurt. but he declared t.hat the Allies had 'Defectively destroyed those prooer- ties of which the enemy had greatest need and recovery from that stage will be siow." Expenditures High '•The final salient fact of this campaign," he continued, "is that while the enemy has von it, captured much territory and so forth, his own expenditures have been high ... the compilations (of losses) made by the Navy department are good and, as alrcady givcn out, show losses in ships of various types, which with the enemy's limited capacity for re- placemcnl, are bound to 'be a subject for his great future concern." In his references to Allied losses, Hart said they had not been serious, except for the sinking of the Repulse and Prince o£ Wales. His statement that "much" of the Americas _ Asiatic fleet "remains to assist in carrying on'' the war was interpreted by naval authorities to refer to personnel lojfes and ships damaged since no sinking? of American warships in Asiatic waters have been announcid.
