D. POLAND ECUSTA FURNISHES nRST DRAFTEE Mr. J. D. Poland, employee of Ecusta, is the first draftee from Transylvania County to be inducted for military train ing under the provision of the Selective Service program. Mr, Poland’s serial number was 14. While more than 500 employees at Ecusta, 300 of whom were single, registered for service. Mr. Poland is the only one who has been called. Volunteers have been supplying the quota for Transylvania County, but it is believed that a sufficient number of volunteers will not be found to fill future quotas due to the fact that most of those who intended to volun teer did so at the beginning. Mr. Poland left for camp under rather peculiar circum stances. He received notice to report to the Local Draft Board at 6:30 A. M., January 18th, prepared to leave for camp. In the meantime a vol unteer appeared making a suf ficient number to fill the quota without Mr. Poland. He was then informed that he would not have to go provided all the volunteers showed up, but it would be necessary for him to report and be ready to go in the event something happened. So Mr. Poland reported accord ing to instructions, not know- (Continued on Pape Four) Three Employees Join Air Corps Three Ecusta employees, Clifton “Coot” Moore, Howard Galloway, and E. E. Vassey, Jr., have left their jobs to enlist in the Air Corps of the U. S. Army. These three men left Bre vard Wednesday, January 22nd for the Charlotte recruiting station, and from there they will go to Charleston, S. C., where they will catch a boat to Hawaii. They will receive their training in Hawaii and expect to be stationed there for iheir two year period of en listment. As the boys said goodbye to their friends at Ecusta they seemed to be very happy and anxious to embark on their new adventure. Howard Galloway is 21 years of age. He began work with Ecusta July 12, 1939 as a mill wright, from which job he worked up to a position as backtender on the paper ma chines. E. E. Vassey, Jr., was em ployed by Ecusta July 21, 1939 as a millwright helper, from which job he worked up to a position as third hand on the paper machines. He is 20 years old and is the son of Mr. E. E. Vassey, millwright fore man for Ecusta. “Coot” Moore came with Ecusta October 12, 1940 as a member of the cleaning gang. For sometime he has been do ing relief work in the inspec tion department. Prior to his employment by Ecusta, he was employed in the canteen oper ated on the plant grounds and was well known to all the em ployees. He is 22 years old. The boys admitted that they might get seasick on their way 10 Hawaii and perhaps a little homesick too before they again see the mountains of Western North Carolina. Their many friends at Ecusta wish for them all the joy and excitement which they antici pate and that they may have many happy landings, finally landing back at Pisgah Forest. TAX REGUUTIONS AFFECT EMPLOYEE Attention of our em,ployees is called to the fact that in come tax returns are now due. While March 15th is the dead line for filing returns, the De partment of Revenue urges everyone to file his return as early as possible after January 1st. Many who have never filed returns before will have to file this year. Changes in the regu lations require that the gross income instead of the net in come will be the basis for de termining whether a person must file a return. The new regulations pro vide that single individuals, or married individuals not living with husband or wife, saving a gross income of $800.00 or more must file a rjeturn. Married individuals living together having a combined income of $2,000 or more must file a return. The regulation requiring per sons of single status who earn ed $800.00 or more during 1940 to file return, will make it nec essary for practically all single employees in Ecusta to make re turns. If a person has earned as much as 40 cents per hour for 40 hours per week during the year 1940, his income was $832.00, an amount sufficient to require his filing returns. The regulation requiring married persons having a com bined income of $2,000.00 or more will affect many em ployees where both the hus band and wife are employed. The fact that an individual must make the tax return does not mean that he will have to pay an income tax. There are many deductions which he is allowed to make such as taxes, certain contributions, and a deduction for earned income. The single person who has made $832.00 will not have to pay income tax, but he must file a return just the same. The above regulations govern the filing of Federal Income Tax reports.
