who is principal lecturer in the
Community Tax Intitute being
held this week in Hutchins Hall.
Nevertheless, people should rea-
lize that there are other import-
ant advantages to the law, Prof.
Burby said. "Women particular-
ly should be interested in the
greater protection afforded the
wife under the law," he comment-
"The law gives her financial
security respecting the income af-
ter marriage," he said, in explain-
ing the law's entirely different
concept under which the com-
munal property acquired after
mar:iage is owned jointly by the
husband and wife.
Despite the increase in tax ex-
emptions, the federal government
has recognized the community
property laws in the 13 states
where they exist.
Antedates Income Tax
In a few of the states where
the law is in effect, it is older
than the federal income tax law.
California had the community
property law before the state was
incorporated into the Union in
1848. Under the Treaty of Guad-
alupe-Hidalgo, in that year, it
was provided that the private
property of the people in the ced-
ed territory would be protected,
so the United States had to ac-
cept the community tax concept,
according to Prof. Burby.
The French and Spanish intro-
duced the communal property
theory into American law, and
when the French and Spanish
left, the law didn't, Prof. Burby
