CAN YOU DEDUCT MOVING EXPENSES ON YOUR INCOME TAX?

Yes, you can now claim your expenses in moving to a new job (whether it's to your first job or just a different one).

WHAT ARE THE CURRENT TAX RULES ON INTEREST AND DIVIDEND INCOME?

Generally, all interest is taxable-- including interest you receive on bonds, credit union balances, and all savings accounts (including savings and loan accounts). Even if the interest wasn't actually entered in your passbook until after January 1, 1966, it's taxable on your 1965 return if it was payable before the end of that year.

WHAT IF A BANK CHARGES A BAD CHECK TO YOUR ACCOUNT?

GOOD NEWS FOR MEN!

Here's a really new idea in self-contained vacation houses. A masterful job of design and engineering makes the 10-by-14-foot floor area live like a house twice the size. And the use of little-care materials, interior and exterior, practically eliminates those unwanted vacation-time maintenance worries.

HOW TO KNOW WHEN SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY NEEDS A PSYCHIATRIST

Anyone with a toothache knows it's time to see a dentist. A temperature that climbs above 102 degrees means a call to the doctor is in order. Such physical symptoms are clear. But in the realm of mental and emotional health, few precise guidelines exist. No thermometer can measure the state of one's mind, and the symptoms of distress can be subtle.

HOW TO CHOOSE A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT FOR YOUR CHILD

What's the right age? Music teachers generally find that ages 7 and 8 are good starting times for music study. By then, a child knows enough reading, writing, and arithmetic to handle notations, and his interest span is usually sufficient for the 20-to 30-minute minimum practice sessions recommended by educators.

DOES ALL THE TESTING REALLY MAKE TODAY'S CARS TOUGHER?

The standard refrain "They don't build 'em the way they used to," is right. Because they're building cars better, to last longer, require less service and maintenance, and take more abuse with a margin of safety.

Your chances of getting killed on the highway are two and a half to three times greater at night than by day. The extra danger evidently lies in the problems of limited vision and increased fatigue. To develop advice on how best to cope with these hazards, Better Homes and Gardens worked with Dr. Paul L. Connolly, chairman of the Motorists' Vision Committee of the Michigan Optometric Association, member of the night visibility committee of the Highway Research Board, member of the Society of Automotive Engineers, and visual consultant to the automotive industry.
