GIVEN under my hand on this 19th day of December, 1947. C. E. WEAVER Commissioner in Chancery Dec. 20, 27, 1947, ]an 3, 19-18 By BOB BRWON Little Rock, Dec. 19 —(UP)— State income tax returns will go out Jan. 12, 1948, to some 30,000 Arkansas taxpayers — the largest number in the history of the state. They must be filed by May 15. Meanwhile, the income division of the Slate Revenue Department is putting the finishing touches on the largest collection year in history. In fact, collections \yill almost double the previous '. high of $3.700.000 in 1943. Collections of of Dec. 1 totaled .$6.082,862, and Revenue Commissioner Otho A. Cook says the 12- month total will top $6,500,000. Much of the increase is due to the revised income tax laws passed' by the 1947 legislature and upheld by the Arkansas Supreme Court Other reasons for the in-j crease are better collections, more emphasis on taxes throughout the state, and general prosperity. In announcing that the new forms would be sent out, Cook pointed to a few revisions in the law: pearance will be open to the paying public. Yet, indications are that seats will go begging. The Razorbacks, paced by six- foot-ten George Kok and six-six Alvin Williams, will be trying to get back into the victory column after two defeats, on an eastern tour. To bolster his charges, Coach Gene Lambert plans to Use Mike Schu- mchyk, six-foot-four letterman of the 1944 and 1945 seasons, for the first time since the big forward returned from army duty. North Texas' Eagles boast a tough outfit which has given three top-ranking Southwest Conference teams a run for their money before losing. The Eagles, featuring the scoring antics of Forward Don Dcardorff and Center Sam Bell, have fallen before defending champion Texas, Southern Methodist and Baylor. Thus, tonight's game will be watched with a view toward the Razorbacks' forthcoming conference campaign.

Satira Trial Ends, Verdict Expected in Few Days Havanna, Dec. 19 — (fP) —The manslaughter trial' of Patricia (Satira) Schmidt who is accused of the yacht shooting of John Lester Mee, Chicago naval veteran, ended at 11 a. m. today. The verdict is not expected for several days. Following a half hour of concluding argument by the defense attorney, the Audiencia court adjourned and Patricia left the room in tears. She walked to an automobile between spectators who murmured good luck wishes to her. She addressed the court for a few seconds in her own behalf before the adjournment, saying she hoped the court would not treat her a common criminal. She thanked the tnree judges for giving her a fair trial. The trial began three months and two days ago and had been delayed eight times. The public prosecutor asked a conviction for manslaughter, the maximum penalty of which is 26 years. Patricia, a divorcee who danced in Chicago-and Caribbean night clubs before her fateful love life with Mee, is 22 years old. Three Porkers Picked by Pro Teams By ORUO ROBERTSON Pittsburgh, Dec. 20 — (/P)—• The National Football League came out of an eight-hour draft session in the wee small hours today with the New York Giants. Boston Yanks, Washington Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears claiming the chief prizes among the intercollegiate gridiron stars. The Giants, given first pick because of their lowly status in the Eastern Division, lost no time calling- put the name of Tony (Skippy) Minisi, the University of Pennsylvania's great runner and kicker. The Yanks stepped in at the first roll call and grabbed Vaughn Mancha, great Alabama center. The Redskins put the tab on another of the Crimson Tide in selecting Lowell Tew ,20-year old 190- pound fullback. While the Eagles, who'll meet the Steelers for the Eastern Division title Sunday at Forbes Field, didn't announce their first choice, it was believed to have been Clyde (Smackover) Scott, former Navy back who has another year of eligibility left at the University of Arkansas. A three-way unannounced switch n the draw landed Bobby Layne the first time in years, Army is going to charge the public for admission to winter sports events — one buck for everything going on in the field house.
