"Frequently people don't know what they can claim against their income," Maurice said, "and some pass up deductions simply because they don't know tax laws." Although most Americans will file the 1040A, or short form this year, those who choose the long-form route, the 1040, will fill out an average of two to three additional forms. While the total number of forms is over 30, there are about six or seven most commonly at- tached to the 1040, said Dr. Clair Nixon, professor of accounting at Texas A&M. "The object of filing taxes is for in- dividuals and businesses to accurately declare income or losses," Nixon said.

In composing the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines published a year ago, gover- nment scientists assumed a "public health" approach to the dietary fat/cholesterol issue. Since the scientists were convinced by their data that dietary fat and cholesterol are a significant risk factor in coronary heart disease, the USDA guidelines recommend modest cuts in consumption of fat and cholesterol across'the nation. However, another set of guidelines, published by the Food and Nutrition Board (FNB) of the National Research Council, insists that cholesterol and fat modification be individually prescribed by a physician, and that recommending major revisions in the national diet represents an unnecessary infringment on public freedom. Defending the board's position, FNB Vice-chairman Henry Kamin ex- pressed his disdain for the viewpoint, "What do we have to lose by eating less fat and cholesterol?" "I am reluctant to try to persuade the entire American population to become experimental subjects," he said, poin- ting out that some dietary proposals would reduce by half the U. S. intake of animal fat, including dairy products, red meats and eggs. "This is a remarkable degree of austerity to recommend to the entire population," he said. Kamin further pointed out that the decline of cardiac mortality among U. S. males since 1968 parallels a decline in deaths from many other causes and cannot be explained solely by dietary changes. The USDA and FNB differ greatly in- their approaches to a national dietary policy with regard to cholesterol and fat guidelines. They do agree that the two primary areas of concern are that in- dividuals: 1) Eat a variety of foods and 2) Achieve and maintain an ideal body weight. Other points of agreement are: I) Most Americans eat more sodium than they need and should reduce their sodium intake. 2) Alcohol should be consumed only in moderation. 3) Reductions in consumption of sugars, fats and alcohol are often necessary to maintain ideal weight and prevent obesity.
