Under a new plan announced ,by the Army Provost Marshal Gen- eral, mail will now be forwarded through the International Red Cross in Switzerland, he said. Previously, mail could not be ac- cepted ~y the post office for pris- ~oners until their permanent pris- on camp addrea~es were received. This usually was two or three mon4hs after the not~ieaUon of capture. Letters can now be sent as soon as a man Is reported prisoner, it is stated, provided that they con- tain the full name and address of the prisoner identifying him as a United States prisoner of war in Germany and are sent in care of the International Red Cross Di- rectory Service, Geneva, ~witzer- laud. Packages cannot be sent until notification of the prisoner's per- manent location is received, she said. Official prisoners of war package mailing labels will then be supplied by the Provo~t Mar- shall's office allowing one par- cel tO be sent every two months. ly, reports the state salvage com- mittee.

Not-Requiredl I to Make Declaration of Income Dec, 15th Contrary to accepted belief, farmers do not necessarily have to make a declaration of estimat- ed income tax on or before De- cember ~5 of this year, says Aug- ust Borino, U. S. Deputy Collect- or, who Is in Sunnance this week. Under the new 1944 law he may wait until the following January 15, 1945. As before, how- ever, there is nothing to prevent a farmer from filing a declar- ation sooner if he wishes to make current payments toward the fin- al tax, explains the collector. Since the new law permits a final return filed on or before January 15 to take the place of a declaration otherwise required on that date, persons who quali- fy as a farmer (defined as indi- viduals whose estimated income from farming for the taxable year was at least 80 percent of tl~elr total estimated gross income from all sources for the taxable year) will be relieved of all estimating requirementsby filing their final return on or by Januhrdluaoihrdl return on or before Jgnuary 15 Instead of March 15. Calender of Events DECEMB[R 4 Lior~ meet at 6"A5 p. m. at Elk Horl OCM~R 5 Auxiliary meets at home of Mrs. Framk Johnstone---8 p. -. D[C[IIB[I; ,7 v/e~,en SecJety e~m~r ~d kake sl~ 2:00 ia m.--W. H. Bhlkmsu homo. His group followed closely everY invasion in that area from New Caledonia 'to Palau. Ted piled up 1700 hours of com- bat flying during his service with the Marine Corps, "SCAT", the South-Pweific Combat Air Trans- port, whose pilots fly in supplies, men and ammunition and .bring out wounded durihg the lures- lens. He admits they were "shot at some" but on the wl~ole thinks his lfne of duty was "pretty good'" and found most interesting his acquaintance with new sights and people--many of the natives are fine, friendly people whose more to 16 size, and other things too Food most of the time was ad- equate with the exception of ear- ly days in the campaigns when perhaps they Just didn't eat, Ted said. "If I go across again, I'm going tO have them send me things like pickles and olivm--- I didn't realize how hungry I was for the little luxuries like that until I got ,back home,' he said when asked what other bays "out there" might want. Some of the men got cookies from home but they weren't much good by the time they arrived. "I didn't know' there was a cigarette shortage until I got home---I'm stfl]~ smok- ing some I brought home with me." He thinks n~ost of the men out there will :be able to get all of that sort of thing they want unless it is the men on New Guinea. When Ted first went on duty tn the South Pac|flc he went to New Caledonia, then through the Soiomons campaign, Bougainvtlle and all along the invasion route; then when action moved into the Central Pacific hls group went along to Guam, through the Mar- lanes and across to Palau, his, last station, hitting Just about every point of action in tho~e ~brea~. Ted's mighty proud to be a par~ of the famed SCATS organization. While in the transport service Ted was able to keep quite close track of his brother. Don, who is in' the navy, up until the begin- ning of the current Philippine in- vasion in which Den's ship has been participating. Somehow he never managed to make connec- tion, however. He never did see~ any of the fellows from home eith- er. Just four days from the time he left his last station, Ted was 'back in the states, having made the trip home by air with the Marine "GnaCs." Ted and his wife ant starer Helen arrived home Friday---4a time for the last days of the hunting season---he was success- ful in bringing down a fine buck while the family spent a ~ew days at the Rounds cabin ~fi ~nd creek. Helen will ~pend the re- mainder of the week hem before returning to Cheyenne; Ted and hie wif will be here about two weeks. He will then report to El Centre, California where he hopes to get four-engine t!me; "he has ,been flying two.mbtor transports. He expects to be sta- tioned In the states for ~u{ five months before being returned to combat zone as that is the sched- ule being followed by the Marine air wll~g.
