They followed the Lead of Irving Trust co., which announced a similar Cut Friday effective monday. The last time the prime rate stood at the 5 per cent level was in March 1966.

Against aerospace workers pay Board expected to take first wage Rollback action Washington a the pay Board was expected to order its first wage Rollback today cutting a 12-per-cent raise for aerospace workers probably to 8 per cent or less. But it appeared to be an open question whether the Board would Honor its own new Rule limiting All pay raises in new contracts to no More than 7 per cent even in special circumstances. Various sources said Allio business and Public members were determined to vote against the five labor members and order a Cut of some amount. Not All of them however. Were reported ready to Roll the aerospace raise Back to 7 per cent. On another matter the boards five business members were reported ready to press for a legally binding regulation that would automatically Cut off future pay raises in old contracts exceeding 7 per cent a year. Business member Virgil Day a general electric co. Vice president said the business members would propose such a regulation during meetings this week last month the business members issued a Blanket Challenge of All deferred raises Over 7 per cent but under this procedure t h e Board would Nave to order any rollbacks on a Case by Case basis that could swamp the panel with thousands of reviews. The boards guidelines say raises in new contracts can to go Over 5.5 per cent except in special cases that might warrant raises up to 7 per cent Day said the Rule to he proposed by business members would put the same 7-per-cent lid on deferred raises in contracts already agreed upon. Last dec. 21 the Board debated far into the night without reaching a decision on contracts covering units of the United Auto workers and the Al to International association of machinists at six aerospace firms All except one follow the pattern set in the Faw pact with nor h american Rockwell corp. Which contains a first year raise of 51 cents in the $4 32 hourly average an 118 per cent increase. The exception is the Iam pact with less take Home pay is Likely despite tax Cut Washington of a in spite of the tax Relief voted by Congress last month millions of americans will find their take Home pay reduced after Jan. 16 by a bigger income tax bite out of their checks. Congress has increased sharply the withholding rate to make the amount of tax withheld by employers come closer to Matching the employee s actual tax liability for the year. That w ill Correct the under withholding which for in my taxpayers has been a nuisance for years for 1972 and he after fewer Middle and upper come taxpayers will have to mail quarterly estimated tax payments or make Large Lump sum payments when they file their income tax returns this was a particular problem in 1971 for married couples in which both husband and wife work the old withholding tables were geared to give them one too Many now income allowances Many will have to pay several Hundred dollars on april 15 to get right with the internal Revenue service. The change in the withholding tables was designed to Correct that situation for the new tax year and to give the Treasury the current use of an estimated ii billion which formerly has been under withheld in the course of each year. But in correcting the under withholding of one Large group of taxpayers. Congress has complicated the financial problems of another Large group by causing Over withholding millions of taxpayers particularly Middle income couples in which Only the husband works and those claiming Large amounts of itemized deductions will find the new withholding tables take too deep a bite. The withholding increase is so Large in fact that in my cases it will More than offset the paycheck benefits that Congress enacted last month in the form of higher personal exemptions and an increased Standard deduction. Taxpayers at the income level of $20,000 to $25,000 who claim itemized deductions of $4,000 to $5.000�?fairly Ordinary at that income level May find themselves paying the government upwards of $50 a month More than they owe for the Relief of such taxpayers the irs has prepared a new form to be distributed by employers called a a employee s withholding exemption by filling it out and returning it to his employer he can adjust his year Long withholding to an amount roughly equivalent to his actual tax liability. The new form carries a table showing How Many a a allowances the taxpayer should claim at $750 each the new amount of the personal exemption to insure that he is meeting his tax obligations throughout the year but not overpaying along the Way. United aircraft corp in Connecticut. Where the Union got Only an 8-per-cent raise in the first year. Quot the pay boards impasse Over the aerospace settlement does not involve whether to Cut it but by How Day said monday. Day who expressed his views in an unpublished essay and in a Telephone interview said All five business members wanted to Cut the 12-per-cent raises Hack at least to the 8 per cent level in the United contract. But Day also said at least one business member wants to Cut All the Way Back to 7 jut cent another Board informant said some of the Public members. Possibly All five wanted 7 per cent. The Public members have consistently taken a hard line. Business members have sided with the Public members in laying Down Tough rules rather than with the labor members in applying the rules loosely. San.

The role that has been his since Midsummer of 1969 when sen Edward m Kennedy of Massachusetts renounced 1972 presidential candidacy after the fatal automobile Accident at Chappaquiddick Island Kennedy has said repeatedly that he does not intend to be a candidate hut still is highly rated in the Public opinion polls. The names of Muskie and former sen. Eugene j. Mccarthy were entered monday in the presidential primary to be held March 21. But Mcgovern aides said the South Dakotan is staying out of the Illinois Campaign to avoid a popularity contest with Muskie. Muskie already had made his announcement of candidacy in a fund raising letter on dec. 27, asking some 500.000 potential contributors for help. A a a who qualifies As dependents by Ray de Crane you and internal Revenue service might not always agree on who is your dependent. But you had better come to learn the irs rules. This is one Case where ties do not end in a 50-50 split. You always lose. Consider these examples Sally your 18-year-old daughter did no to earn a dime last year. She graduated from High school in june. You clothed her you furnished her housing. She received a steady allowance from you. When she was married in Christmas week you paid All the wedding expenses. Can you claim her As a dependent not if she files a joint return with her new husband you can to. For that one week of marriage he is entitled to file a joint return with Sally and claim a $675 personal exemption for her. How about your 21-year-old son Tom he was away at College. You paid his tuition Board lab fees furnished his clothing and transportation expenses. Tom graduated in june and secured a Good Job. He continued to live at Home and made a modest contribution of $15 a week from income. Surely he was a dependent you argue. Done to be too sure. You could Lute out again. Tom s Case re quires further information. What did he earn after graduating and How much of his earnings did he spend in his own support his $15 weekly contribution to Home is not pertinent. If for example Tom earned $5,000 in those 62 months after graduation and spent it All he contributed $5,000 toward hts own support. Your contributions toward Toms support must have exceeded his own $5,000 before you could claim him As a dependent. The hang up Here is the requirement of furnishing chief support for any claimed dependent. For dependents other than your children a parents or relatives for example a the rules Are much More Clear and positive once they have Gross income of at least $675, you can not possibly claim them As de Pendents. No matter How much support Vou furnished. The Only exceptions to the $675 Gross income limitation Are for your children under the age of 19 by dec. 31, 1971 or those children 19 and older who attended a full time school a full Ime school for at least five months of 1971. While the income test is waived for students and children under 19 the chief support requirement still remains. Here Are some possible solutions if Sally a new husband files As a a. Ried person making a separate return you can claim her As a dependent on your return. She is clearly someone a dependent but you both can to claim her. And the husband has the firs Choice. If Tom puts $1,000 of his earnings into his own savings account this Means that he cot id not possibly have contributed More than $4,000 toward his own support. Now your Chaldee who on Page 2-a
