S Navy. The rafts will be manufactured by the Com- pany's Transportation Prod- ucts Division facility in Union, W. VA. Under the terms of the base contract. Goodrich will supply the Navy with 1,416 of its Mark VI life rafts, with an option for additional rafts in the future• Delivery is scheduled to begin m the second half of 1980 and run through mid-1981 The Mark VI is a 25-person raft which is stored in a rigid, weatherproof container. When deployed, it is inflated by two high-pressure air cylinders to form a raft measuring 21 feet long by 9 feet wide. Each raft carries a survival kit and is covered by a bright orange- colored canopy. Flotation is pro- vided by two rubber tubes that form the sides of the raR. Either of the tubes is sufficient to float the fully-loaded raft, which can be inflated in appro- ximately 30 seconds. The Mark VI was developed to U.S. Navy specifications in 1974. It has been in continu- ous production for the past five years to meet the Navy's re- quirements for survival equip- ment. Livestock Market Alderson Livestock Market Cows: Commercial, 45.00- 47.

Update Acquired A rare historical document 1040A or have the IRS com. pute their tax bill. They must file a Form 1040 and the am- ount of estimated tax paid with the Form 4868 should be en- tered on the appropriate line of the FOrm 1040. Additional extensions are gr- anted only under unusual cir- cumstances, according to the IRS. Taxpayers can apply for such extensions by letter or by filling out Form 2688, an App- lication for Extension of Time "If the amount of tax paid .:to File U.S. Individual Income " Tax Return. The statement must include the reasons why the additional extension is nec- essary. The IRS cautioned taxpayers to file requests for additional extensions early enough to be able to file their return on time if the request is rejected. Taxpayers who need extra time to file their federal in- come tax returns may request an automatic two-month ext- ension from the Internal Rev- enue Service. "Form 4868, an Application for Automatic Extension of Time to file U.S. Individual Ineoem Tax Return, must be filed to receive the extension, " said IRS spokesman Los Wit- mer. "The taxpayer must com- pute the tax expected to be owed for 1979, subtract any prepayments of tax from with- holdings or estimated tax pay- ments, and pay any balance. This must be sent with Form 4868 to the IRS on or before the normal filing date." Taxpayers who receive the extension cannot use the Form with the Form 4868 does not cover the taxpayer's total lia- bility," added Witmer, " the taxpayer is required to pay interest on the remaining tax due. Further, if the unpaid tax is over 10 percent of the total tax bill, the taxapyer may be penalized."

George Parkinson, curator of the West Virginia and Regional History Collection, said the 162- page text will be available to historians, genealogists and other interested persons.

With close to 40 provisions, fully 17 of those are devoted to getting the federal government out of the education of.young Americans. On the threat of cutting off federal funds, it would allow parents to visit any public classroom to see for them- selves their children's education; it would allow parents and commun- ities to review textbooks prior to their use in schools, as well as prohibit the ridiculous censorship of textbooks that currently for- bids "Founding Fathers," "chair- man," and a host of other words from appearing on allegedly "sex- /st" grounds. The bill would give back to the states the power to de- cide policy such as teacher certifi- cation and attendance require- ments, and. in doing so make the schools more responsiv¢, to tax- payers. The bill is a true tax boon to American families. It proposes a $2500 tax deduction for the educa- tion-public or private, elemen- tary or university--of each child. The legislation abolishes the so- called "marriage tax" which cur- rently forces two married workers to pay more taxes than two sin- gles• It stops the payment of food stamps to those voluntarily unem- ployed, such as students. And in S, major recognition of the ex- tended family, the bill allows a $1000 tax dedoction---or a $250 Ashland Oil, Inc. announced today that it plans to purch- ase from time to time up to 350,000 shares of its Cumulat- ive Preferred Stock, $4.50 Ser- ies of 1980.

According to Parkinson, the book reveals the singular att- titudes of New England spec- ulators in their management of Company affairs• For instance, in its efforts to meet the religious and educa- tional needs of New England settlers--as opposed to other ba- sin residents under company jurisdiction-- it was claimed that the "natives are very desirous that the company... should make settlement as they highly'esteem the Yankeys and say that one Yankey will do as much work as four of them- selves."
