BALBOA, Canal Zone, Jan. 21.— The tight defense thrown around the Panama Canal now has been extended to almost all Panama. Airfields, a generous scattering of them basing combat planes “ready for business," dot the coastland and the interior. New defenses have been thrown up against possible sea borne invasion of Panama. A group of news correspondents has just seen this and much more on an air tour which took them al most to Costa Rica. The flat lowland of Panama’s Pa cific coast, much of it naturally for bidding to unwanted visitors be cause of its swampiness and vol canic roughness, has become far more hostile with installation of the new defenses. Strong Defense Facing Sea. Where sandy beaches five way to swamps on the shoreline there is a strong defense facing the sea and In support are many attack bases as well as defense positions. The Pana ma Canal department is determined to build up a striking force which can annihilate any Invading group. The air bases are all sizes and all types, from tiny dust-blown pas tures commanded by lieutenants to full-scale airdromes of mighty force. Pilots and their crews sleep beside scattered planes, ready for almost Instantaneous take-off. A three minute getaway is considered about i par. | Bale* Have Own Force*. All the bases have their own de fense forces to protect them against surprise attack from any direction. Machine-gun nests and emplace ments pockmark the open fields and fill unsuspected nooks and crannies. There are anti-aircraft guns, trenches and revetments— surprises of all kinds. The men may go shirtless in some of the sun-baked camps but all are always fully armed. All officers wear sidearms. The crew of the transport plane strapped on their pistols at every landing. It was apparent all were determined that any surprise here after will be at the expense of the enemies of the United States. Spirits were high even at the bases in the remotest interior where comforts and means of recreation are few. Cabinet of Jailed U Saw To Resign in Burma By the Associated Pr#ss.

Your Income Tax— No. 17—Earned Income Credit The law allows In computing the normal tax of an individual an earned income credit of 10 per cent of the earned net income, but not in excess of 10 per cent of the net income. "Earned income” is defined in the law as wages, salaries, pro fessional fees, and other amounts received as compensation for per sonal services actually rendered.
