Pine St., Philipsburg By Appointment Ph. 342-0534 ity section, said that "inade quate funds" are to blame. "The II. S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare has not," said Rhodes, "re ceived adequate funds to finance a thorough study of the mine drainage pollution prob lems in the Pennsylvania portion of the Susquehanna River. "Because of limited manpower and funds, the Depart ment has limited its studied in some sub-basins to mere location of streams subject to mine drainage pollution. "We must have more detailed information including cost of figures before large scale reclamation projects can be undertaken to abate drainage from abandoned mines." Cost of the Health Depart ment's program for abating pol lution from abandoned mines in the Susquehanna Basin will top $92 million, it was reported. A comprehensive study of water supply and water pollu tion control needs in the basin has been under way under the supervision of the Department of H.E.W. for more than five years.

Zimmerman, chairman of the Pennsylvania Tree Farm Committee and forester for the J. V. Hammond Company located at Spangler. At a recent meeting of the committee, held at State College, 35 new forest areas were certified, bringing the total to 916 covering an aggregate area of 421,175 acres. Among new tree farmers receiving certification were: Emery C. Mahaffey of Mahaf-fey, 100 acres, and Allen Q. Lewis of Cherry Tree, 165 acres. The American Tree Farm System is sponsored nationally by the American Forest Products Industries, Inc., the education and information arm of the private forest industries in the United States for the purpose of promoting sound forest management on privately - owned tax-paying forest lands. The program Avas launched in the state of Washington in 1941 and reached Pennsylvania in 1947. Today the program is active in all 48 contiguous states. Now in its 25th year the program boasts more than 29,000 Tree Farms in the country totaling approximately 66 million acres - all privately owned. Certification of a tree farm by the committee of professional foresters gives public recognition .to the owner that he is practicing sound forest management and has protected his forest land from fire, insects, disease and destructive grazing. To have his property certified the owner also has to demonstrate that he is harvesting his land in a manner to insure repeated timber crops. At the state level the program is administered by the Pennsylvania Forest Industries Committee in Cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Forests and Waters and the Pennsylvania Forestry Association, as well as other organizations interested in wise management of the states timber resources.

OPEN TONIGHT 'TIL 9:00 (Clearfield Store) 5 HUG ARTS Clearfield and Philipsburg Q-What's the difference be tween a short-term and a long term capital gain or loss? A-A capital gain or loss re suits from the sale or exchange of a capital asset (stock, per sonal residence, etc.). If you held the asset six months or less, its sale or exchange results in a short-term gain or loss. If the tranaction occurs after you have held the asset for more than six months, a long-term gain or loss is realized. Long term capital gains are granted preferential tax treatment. IRS Document No. 5048, "Sales and Exchange of Assets," gives com plete information on this sub ject. It is available free at your local IRS office. Q-What about political con tributions? Are they deductible? A-Contributions to political parties are not deductible. Q-The pump at the station where I buy gas shows how much of the cost is for taxes Can I use this figure when ] itemize my deductions? A-No. Part of this total tax figure is for Federal excise taxes, which are not deductible. Only state gasoline taxes are deductible. In Pennsylvania, the gasoline tax is 7 cents a gallon Q-If a diaper service is used on the advice of a doctor, can this cost be included with your medical expenses? A-No. Even though diaper services may have some rela tionship to medical care, they are not considered deductible medical expenses. Q-Where do you report alimony income on the return? A-It should be reported on line 8, part II, page 2 of Form 1040. This is also where other income income such as prizes and the like should be reported. Q-How do you avoid getting bad tax advice? This happened to a friend of mine last year and it was pretty expensive. A-Most tax advisers are competent. Local accounting and legal societies in your area will be able to supply you with a list of qualified tax advisers. Information can also be obtained from your nearest Internal Revenue Service office. Q-Who is liable for tax on interest on savings bonds bought for a child? A-It depends on how the bonds are registered. If the child is listed as co-owner on the bond, the purchaser is liable for tax on the interest; If the child is sole owner with the parent as beneficiary, the child assumes the tax liability.
