whether allowance has beep made for
the possible continuation of the de

Your Income Tax
EXEMPTIONS ALLOWED COU
PLES MARRIED DURING TAX
To avoid error .taxpayers should
note carefully the provision of the
revenue act which relates to the per
sonal exemption of persons married
during the taxable year. The act pro
vides that if the marital status of a
taxpayer changes during the year, his
personal exemption shall be deter
mined by apportionment in accord
ance with the number of months he
wa* single and married. The frac
tional part of a month is disregarded,
unless it amounts to more than half
a month, in which case it is consider
ed a month.
For example a couple married on
July 20, 1931, may file a joint return
and claim a personal exemption of
$3,208.33, which is 7-12 of $1,500 for
the husband while single, plus 7-12 of
$1,500 for the wife while single, plus
5-12 of $3,500 for the peridd during
whicl*.they- were married. If seperate
returns are made, each may claim a
personal exemption of $1,604.17, which
is 7-12 of $1,500, plus 1-2 of 5-12 of
$3,500. In no instance may the per
sonal exemption allowed a married
couple exceed $3,500, irrespective of
whether separate returns are filed or
The provision relates also to the
head of a family. A taxpayer, for ex
ample, who on October 14 ceased to
be the head of a family—the support
in one household of one or more rela
tives having been discontinued—is en
titled to an exemption of $3,000, which
is 9-12 of $3,500, plus 3-12 of $1,500.
The taxpayer’s status on the last
day of the taxable year determines
his status with respect to the S4OO
credit for a dependent. If his support
of such dependent ceased during the
year, he is not entitled to this credit.

“Hiere Was Great Joy In That City”
• Read Arts 8:1-8.)
As a result of persecution in Jeru
salem, the followers of Jesus were
scattered. Sine of them formed In
Samaria, the nucleus of a Christian
community. When Philip came, he
found that the way woe well prepared.
Samaria was ready for trie radiant
activity of apartollc religion, and took
Christ to its heart. “There was great
joy in tha* city ’ So it often happens.
Men of faith and hope in which trie
Light is ahining can not be downed
by any amount of discouragement.
When banished from Jerusalem they
go to Samaria, and there acompMsh
greater things than ever. Such an
achievement is made possible by noth
ing more than faith that never flags,
and a confidence that can not be de
stroyed. This triumph Is within the
grasp of every one of us.
PRAYER: O Thou who canst turn
our discomfiture to victory and our
failures into achievement, let Thy
Spirit so infuse our spirils that we
may know ourselves to be the serv

diseouragexnent as an alky, and wel

Ten Cents a Hen

nr j c. SAKKmviLL
Raleigh, March 9.—Jlens belonging
to the poultry flocks of 249 farmers
in 53 North Carolina counties paid
ten cents a bird in egg production
during the month of January, accord
ing to a summary of reports received
from the 249 owners and complied by
C. J. Maupin, extension poultryman at
The report listed the production of
51,358 hens or an average of 213 to a
farm. This is the largest number of
birds reported on by growers since
farm demonstration flock records
were started nearly five years ago.
The average income from eggs alone
was 21 cents a hen or $11,144.69 for
all birds. The feed cost was 11 cents
a bird for the month leaving a net
profit of 10 cents or $5,289.86 for all
the flocks. This giveß an averagee
profit of $24.97 a farm from the sale
of eggs in January.
One of the interesting things dis
covered by Mr. Maupin In making this
summary was that the cost of feed to
produce one dozen eggs was 42 per
cent less than it was in January 1931.
one year ago. The average sale price
of the eggs was 22 cents a dozen as
compared with 32 cents one year ago.
.still the lower feed cost made the net
leturns from the eggs almost equal
that of one year ago. The hens made
slight gains in laying as compared
with January 1931, due to the present
mild weather and the rigid culling
which has been practiced by North
Carolina poultry growers in the last
Mr. Maupin says another significant
fact brought out by the records on
these demonstration flocks is that the
greatest profit is being secured in
months of high egg production and
consequent low prices. In three of
the past four years, greatest profits
have been obtained in March, April
and May. with March paying best.
The hens also ate more food In March'
and April than in any other months
of the year. Each hen on. which re
ports have been received ate an aver
age of seven pounds of food during
the month of March and when eating
at this rate, the birds averaged about
63 percent production. This shows, Mr.
M*upin says, thal hens must consume
Jafige amounts of a balanced ration
to be profitable and that a high rate
of egg production will pay even in
times of low egg prices such as oc
cur each spring.
