i "-..--···imimu mmmmmmmmmmm The Capitol Report By Senator Morriss Henry imiiiitnitt Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Sim., JUM 30, 1974 AVITTIVILU, ARKANSAS Several persons asked me, following the period during which state and federal income taxes were due and payable. why the state does not allow a deduction for the amount of federal income taxes a person must pay. Fo rabout 20 years, Arkansas allowed taxpayers a full or par tial deduction for the amount of federal income taxes they paid. This practice was discontinued in 1949 and shortly after ward, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the change. Earlier this month, I asked the staff of the Legislative Council, of which I am a member, to outline advantages and disadvantages to the state if the present law which does not allow the deduc- Discovery Of P47 Triggers Search For The Pilot LONDON (AP) - The discovery of a crashed World War ]I U.S. Air Force Thunderbolt lighter in a Field in Kent County has set off a search for the American pilot who bailed out from the stricken aircraft. Voluntary workers from the Aeronautical Museum at Brcn- zelt, near Folkestone, southeast of London, f u u n d the plane about four miles from the former U.S. base at Mansion. The remains of the plane were found 25 feet under (he earth. Leonard Green, one of the recovery group, said "This is a good recovery. The engine is in near-perfect condition and the tail assembly is complete. It is a great find for the musonm." Green s;iid he found the name of (he pilot on a plate in the aircraft -- Cant. K, R Bonebreak. He said eyewitnesses recall the crash 'on Sept. 3. 19«, and they say the pilot was hit by the rudder ns he bailed out. His parachute opened late but he only suf fered a broken ankle. "We believe Capt. Bonebreak eventually settled in Taylor Tex.," Green said. "But in quiries have revealed nothing We would like to see the re mains of his plane brought up.' ion were to be changed. The staff memorandum, which I received last week indicates that 12 states do allow 1 credit in the form of a deduc- lon for federal income taxes paid. Four others allow the deduction with some limita- lons. Twnety six slates, like Arkansas, do not allow the deduction. The most compelling reason 0 leave existing law in force s that it would cost the state about $28 million in revenue to make the change. Unfortunately, such a change would not automatically mean a $28 million saving for individual taxpayers. About half the apparent saying would have to be paid in increased federal income taxes; and about 40 per cent of. the estimated loss in state revenue would come from decreased corporate income axes. There's an old saying that "All that glitters is not gold." ft seems to be applicable here. K a reduction in state income :axes would only mean an increase in federal income taxes, 1 expect most of our people would rather not tamper with 1he tax structure. Most of us would rather leave our contribution to government as close to home as possible, where we seem to have better control over it than in Washington. I invite your comments. Write Wright MORRISTOWN, N. J. (AP) -- Harry Wright said "Write in Wright," but 294 voters wrote Wright in wrong and a Superior Court judge wrote Wright righ out of his Spurta towns'li] council seat. Superior Court Judge John L Ard told Wright he could no assume that the voters win wrote in "Wright," with no firs name, intended to vote for Har ry Wright instead of one of Ih eight other Wrights in the rura northwestern New Jersey town ship. Wright, who was a runnit^ back for Nolr.! Dame and late a backfield coach and scout fo the New York Giants, had ap parently defeated Mrs. Jon Flanagan by 32 votes in a nor partisan election last month But the judge'-s decision her Friday overturned Wright's vie tory. SLA Guns Bought Legally, Los Angeles Polke Report LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Vhere did they come from, the rifles, handguns and shotguns found in the rubble of a louse where six Symbionese .iberation Army members made their last stand? A police expert chuckled. "Do you have a driver's !r cnse and are you over 18?" he asked, '"Well, just walk into a well-stocked gun store and you buy what they had for 1,000. "Let's put it this way. They jrobably bought those weapons with surprising ease." Although serial numbers had een filed off on some of the weapons, police say they've 'raced two of the pistols, one of he rifles and one shotgun to Siegle's Gun Shop in Oakland. They were 'bought legally by ive SLA members using their own names and paving cash. The remaining weapons found after the May 17 Shootout have not been traced. They include 'our Ml rifles converted to automatic weapons. The Army- surpkts Mis are sold legally in a .number of gun stores, for about $100 a rifle. Dave Siegle. co-owncr of (he store where the SLA puchasec ·veapons, remembers Camilla Hall. 26. one of the victims of :he gunfight with police. She bought a 9mm Mauser auto malic pistol for $180 last Nov. 7. DEALER SHOCKED "She had a bubbly personality, very masculine. bill pleasant. I was totally shocked after discovering she was an SLA member," Siegle said. "Usually the professional criminal is not going to wal'r. They usually steal their guns or buy them on the street "Now I think twice a n d _ ^ r r suspicious." There is a five-day wait !'e tween purchase and delivery o handguns in California. During t h a t time, the purchaser is checked by police and the state Criminal Identification Bureau None of the five SLA buyers had a police record. The sales were okayed. Angela Ativood. 25. who died May 17. and William Harris, 28 also bought 9mm Mausers. Thi weapons are designed for com bat but also are popular fo target shooting. One of the sawed-off shotguns ound here was bought in Aa- ust 1973 in Siegle's by Joseph J. Remiro, accused along with Russell Little in the assassina- ion last November of Oakland chools Supt. Marcus Foster, or which the SL A claimed :redit. Siegle remembered Remiro, 17, winning a 30-30 Winchester rifle as a prize in a drawing at he shop. He said Remiro frequented the gun shop regularly lefore being arrested with Little, 24, last January. "He talked just like anyone else who comes in to discuss iuns and target practice and hings like that," Siegle recalled. PRACTICED SHOOTING SLA members apoarently ound it easy to buy and alter ;uns. They also practiced shooting them regularly at a mblic rifle range southeast of San Francisco, paying $1.75 each day for the privilege. All the SLA members except their leader. Donald Defreeze, who died May 17, reportedly practiced at the Chabot Gun eight miles from Castro Valley, near Oakland. The range is large enough to ac- :ommcdate 100 people firing at .argets at the same time. Some targets are only 50 feet away and others as much as a mile from the firing line. Murray "Pappy" Cryder, who managed the shooting range until last February, says he doesn't remember any of the SLA members and "wouldn't ivant to say unless I was sure." But other sources told the Oakland Tribune that SLA members usually came to the range in groups to fire at paper bullseyes. Shooters are required to sign in at the range, but books for the last year were turned over to the FBI. Agents had no comment on what they found. Iran To Get WASHINGTON (AP) -- The United States will enter into an agreement to supply Iran with nuclear fuels and an atomic re a c t o r . Slate Department says. The agreement will contain safeguards prohibiting Iran from using the nuclear supplies for weapons development, he said Friday. * Park * Pick Save During the Rodeo of the Ozarks! ark-Qkla's WESTERN BOOT Headquarters!
