Judge Sullivan stated that he drew up two , complaints against the wife of Summers, but the suit was not carried through. One attempt of Summers to get ihp. children occurred while the trial of'Mary Wilson against Almur Singh was going on. Prior to this time. Summers had ab ducted the boy and returned to De catur, 111. Mrs- Summers went back after the child and thoy returned to .Ogden together. Judge Sullivan staled that while Mrs. Summers had appeared before t Ie juvenile court on complaint of her former husband, no cause for ac tion could have been found In hor man ner of caring for tho children. "She was. devoted, and seemed willing to work hard for the welfare of her chil dren," Judge Sullivan said. Last summer, the former husband, who was working for one of the local ice companies, left Ogden and until the time of the shooting had not been heard of by the Juvenile court, Judge Sullivan stated. While the couple had failed to care for ench others, both retained their love for their children.

CQLLEGTOH j ! i I With less than throe weeks remain ! 5 !lng before the final fifing date of ' 'March 16, considerably less than one- L half of all tho income lax returns for U ' Ogden and Webor county have been V recolvcd to date, according to the est!- i mate of R. H. Argublight, division den- juty collector or internal ro-venuo. 'Those received have come almost ex clusively from Individuals, rather than I partnerships and corporations. While it can scarcely be charged to stringent financial conditions, there is a marked disposition this year to defer payment of Income and excess profits Uoccs until some time near the final fil ing date of Mnrch 15, slates the reve nue officer. The situation, if persist ed in. Mill cause much delay to per sons requiring assistance in filling out their 'income tax blanks. "It does not seem ihat partnerships are taking full cognizance of the law in that every partnership is required to file return for 1919, regardless of the amount of net earning, even though there bo no earning whatever," Jsa'ld Deputy Ajgubright today. "It is. j not necessary that a partnership be recognized as such under common business practice- If a father and son .ill.- l-llgnUU 111 iillillW illlll IJUILIUI- pale In the profits as partners lhi is as much of a partnership as any mer cantile firm operating under partner ship conditions and a return must bo filed. "Employers arc also to be closely checked after March 15 for the filing "of the Forms 1099 and 1096 regarding payments of $1000 or more during the year 1919. Regardless of tho number of payments made, be it one or one thousand, the returns covering this in formation at tho source must be filed on or before March 15." The number of income tax returns rc-crived from fanners in this section of the state Mill fall below previous years, according to the local revenue officer. This is due largely to the i drouth of last summer which reduced j tho crop yield and to tho high M'agcs i paid to farm laborers. ! uorporauens continue to iem?iu tor . 1919 under the exemption of $2000 for I normnl tax purposes but even though a corporation may have no tax what ever It lc not exempted from filing re IBEi MAI TO RACE.
