New Tax Law Requires
Filing Of Estimated In
comes By Non-Wage Group.
Forms and printed instructions
for the filing of estimated income
and Victory tax declarations on
or before next September 15, as
required by the new Current Tax
Payment Act, are now being dis
tributed to individual taxpayers
by the collectors of internal reve
nue. Filing of the declarations will
be the second major step under
the Current Tax Payment Act in
converting the federal individual
income tax from the old delayed
payment method to a "pay-as-you-go"
basis. The first step was the
inauguration July 1 of the new
withholding plan, under which the
Victory tax, normal income tax
and first bracket surtax are paid
by millions of persons through de
ductions from their wages and
The purpose of the declarations
is to make current in their tax
payments all those individuals
whose income and Victory tax
liability will noi be fully covered
by collections through withholding
and other credits.
Situ pi tied Fitn
Kxperts of the bureau of inter
nal revenue have greatly simplified
for the average taxpayer the task
of filing the declarations.
A form and set of instructions
for use in estimating the tax on
incomes up to $10,000 rival for
simplicity, revenue officials pointed
out, the familiar "five minute in
come tax return" which made its
debut in 1942- The computations
and entries which this simplified
declaration method requires should
be matters of about $ve minutes
for a large portion of the taxpay
ers by whom declarations will have
to be submitted, the officials said.
For those who desire to make a
more precise computation, or who
have an income of more than $10,
000, detailed worksheets may be
secured from the collector upon re-
In North Africa
PFC. JOHN HOWARD WATTS,
son of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Watts,
of Hazelwood, who entered the ser
vice on January 14, 1943, is serv
ing with the armed forces in North
Africa. He was inducted at Camp
Croft, and from there sent to Camp
Gordon, where he took his basic
training. He was later transfer
red to Fort McPherson and from
there to his post overseas. Pfc.
Watts is a graduate of the Bethel
high school in the class of 1940,
and at the time he entered the
service was employed by the Glenn
L. Martin Company, Baltimore.
Persons required to file the
declarations are generally: 1. The
recipients this year or last year
of gross incomes from wages sub
ject to withholding in excess of
$2J00 for single persons, or $.V
500 for married couples; 2. Those
who have incomes this year, or
had incomes last year, requiring
the filing of a return, with more
than $100 of these incomes derived
from sources other than wages sub
ject to withholding; 3. Those re
quired to file an income tax return
on 1942 incomes and whose wages
subject to withholding for 1943 are
reasonably expected to be less than
their similar wages for 1942.
May Take Credits
Where the declarations show an
estimated tax liability for 1943
in excess of credits, half of the
excess is to be sent to the collec
tor of internal revenue along with

Question; When is the best time
of the year to cut pulpwood?
Answer: You can cut pulpwood
any month in the year, if it is
shipped rough, or in the bark, says
R. W. Graeber, in charge of Ex
tension Forestry at N. C. State
College. He points out that if the
wood is to be peeled, spring and
arly summer are the best periods.
Pulp mills now buy most of the
pine wood in the bark. Two mills
buy North Carolina hardwoods in
bark and one mill requires peeled
wood. Winter months are ideal
for cutting pulpwood to improve
your woods by removing the low
grade, cull trees and thinning over

Question: Can I "overfeed" my
Answer: Each cow should be fed
according to her ability to produce
milk, says John A. Arey, Exten
sion dairy specialist at State Col
lege. Feeding the cow a full ra
tion means that the animal should
receive enough feed to maintain her
body weight and also enough to
produce all the milk she is capable.
Since the cow must first keep up
her weight, it is poor policy not
to give her 'enough feed for eco
nomical milk production. Feeding
a full ration never means overfeeding.

Question; How should barley,
wheat and rye be fed to workstock?
Answer: Oats and corn are the
standard rations for horses and
mules, according to L. I. Case, Ex
tension animal husbandman at N.
C. State College. He advises that
barley, wheat and rye be ground
if fed to workstock. The last two
should generally be mixed with
other feeds to prevent digestive
disturbances. He pointed out that
cottonseed meal also is often used
as a protein supplement but that
it is good practice not to feed more
than one pound of the meal per
1,000 pounds of livi weight of the
horse or mule.
Question: Should I cull my laying
flock heavy or light this fall?
Answer: Because of the short
age of feeds, particularly the pro
teins, you should cull your flock
thoroughly this fall and remove all
non-layers, says R. S. Dearstyne,
head of the poultry department at
State College. During the coming
year every effort should be made to
get the greatest number of eggs
from the feed which is available.
Last year you were asked to keep
some of the hens which were not
first-quality producers because at
that time the emphasis was put on
the egg supply.

Question: What do they make
out of the pulpwood which I am
cutting in my spare time to help
in the war effort?
Answer: Your pulpwood will go
into fiberboard, boxes, and paper
containers to ship food, shells, gun
parts, and supplies of all kinds to
our armed forces, says R. W. Grae
ber, in charge of Forestry Exten
sion at State College. He also says
that your pulpwood goes into medi
cal supplies, photographic film,
plastics, smokeless powder, rayon
for parachutes, and medical dress
ings. A cord of wood from your
farm can be made into powder to
fire two rounds of a 16-inch naval
Question: What is the best meth
od of sowing small grain?
Answer: The drill is by far the
best method of sowing small grains,
say the agronomists at State Col
lege. Less seed are needed and
there is more uniform distribution
of seed They are covered from 1
to 1 inches deep, which gives
more satisfactory germination and
permits deep rooting of the plants.
These deeper roots hold the plants
in place, when freezing "heaves"
the topsoil and this helps to pre
vent winter killing. Where grain
is sown broadcast, it should be
covered with a section harrow. If
a roller or cultipacker follows the
section harrow, the seed bed is
made firm and a better stand is
State College Hints
To Farm Homemakers
By Ruth Current
If you value your coat, always
unbutton it before you sit down
because there is a strain on the
tember 15 and October 15. After
the latter date, such parcels may
not be mailed unless a written re
quest from the soldier for the arti
cle is presented with each parcel.
No soldier should have to AsK
for a Christmas gift; so gifts must
be mailed on time. The Navy also
urges that gifts be mailed between
September 16 and October 15.
Reasons for the early mailing
dates are: The vast distances that
the parcels must travel to reach our
men at war fronts and stations the
world over; frequent transfers of
thousands of men from one loca
tion to another, which means for
warding of the mail and consumes
additional time; the necessity for
giving preference to reinforce
ments, arms, munitions, medicine
and food in allotment of shipping
space, which often means that the
shipments of gifts must wait. And
it is most urgent that gifts be de
livered to the men In Time For
Christmas, to keep their spirit high.
The only way to insure against
disappointment for the fighting
men is to buy at once and mail
early mail your gifts as soon as
possible after the September 15
Those who have relatives or
friends in the service should re
member that we have fighting men
in Alaska, Greenland, Iceland, Eng
land, Sicily, far-separated regions
of Africa, the Near East countries,
Australia, many of the South Pa
cific islands, India, China, South
America, and other areas.
Weeks are required for a ship
to reach many of these stations.
There can be no assurance, of
course, that the first ship sailing
for any of these locations will have
space available to carry Christmas
parcels. Gifts may have to wait
until vitally needed supplies and
equipment have been shipped, to
assure victory and to save the lives
of our men. If the parcels are not
mailed early, that delay may prove
to be just enough to prevent their
arrival by Christmas day, with con
sequent disappointment to the men
who are offering their lives for
their country and ours.
Mail of all kinds is vital to the
spirit of fighting men. Every offi
cer who has inspected our Army
and Navy postal facilities overseas
has reported that thousands of
fighting men disregard mess call
when it conflicts with mail call, and
get their letters first. Officers at
our large military and naval sta
tions report that the spirit and effi-
seams and buttons. And, never sit
if your coat is wet. When sitting,
fold your coat neatly and place
on your lap.
Form the habit of always hang
ing your coat up rather than throw
ing it across a chair or on the bed.
A good sturdy wood hanger is rec
ommended. Your closet should be
not too crowded with clothes and
by all means have proper ventila
tion. Open closet doors at night,
is no other way has been provided
for air and light.
Your coat can be kept new and
alive looking by brushing it after
every wearing but never brush coat
when wet. Zip the zipper and but
ton the buttons for shape, you
Always brush with the pile. A
soft brush is best except for around
the collar and pockets where you
will need a whisk broom.
