Many mothers and fathers overlook the long-range meaning
of parenthood. This beautiful mother, cuddling her little boy, may
not; realize it, but she is holding an armful of tomorrow.
This child of her heart belongs to another generation the
one that is to follow. It is her high privilege to rear him and train
him for that future life.
If she thinks merely of the happiness the little fellow has
brought into her life and home, she has missed the point entirely.
Her main thought should be of what he may mean to his own
generation and the world, and of his own future happiness.
It is a sobering thought that the next generation is being
molded like clay in the hands of the present generation of parents.
Religion is an essential element in the training of a child.
Teach him to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly before
God, and he is not likely to stray into dangerous paths.
The Church can give valuable aid to parents in fulfilling this

Many Married Couples May
Have Overpaid State Tax
Good news for Oregon taxpayers. Many married couples have
overpaid their state income tax,
closed today.
The state tax commission meeting here Thursday amended Its
regulations to permit married couples to correct their 1948 income
tax returns in certain cases. The-
new rule is designed to make it
possible for husbands and wives
who filed Joint returns to take
advantage of the "combined sep
arate return form" where that
method results in less tax. Such
I amendments must be filed with
the commission by July 15.
The Oregon community prop
erty law made it possible for
married couples to split their
1948 Income evenly, thus saving
taxes by keeping their income in
lower tax brackets,
Fisher said a sampling of the
returns filed has led the com
mission to believe that many of
the 1948 joint returns mailed up
to April IS resulted in tax pay
ments substantially over those
required by the "combined sep
arate" return. One theory is that
taxpayers were misled by use of
the federal form in which Joint
filing resulted in lesser tax.
Fisher pointed out that the
confusion will be obviated in the
future, because the 1949 legisla -
Published' loch Week Under the
Being Sponsored by tho
f ' I 1 Q
commissioner Earl L. Fisher dia
ture provided for splitting in
come in a joint return, similar to
the federal method.
Fisher said married taxpayers
are urged to examine their cop
ies of their 1948 returns. If all
income reported was lumped to
gether, using but one column of
the return, it is probable that
a "join" return was made. The
commissioner suggests that these
taxpayers should try splitting
their income in the two columns
labeled "husband" and "wife,
dividing the sums equally, to
take advantage of the lower tax
rates this method provides. If
a lesser tax is then found due,
an amended return may be filed.
