New Customs Act effective Nov. 3 Effective Nov. 3, the Customs Simplification Act will generally provide more liberal gift and duty- free merchandise exemptions for entry into the United States cus- toms territory (CTUS). The act, which was signed by President Carter Oct. 4, will high- light the following areas for De- partment of Defense personnel: 1. Increases the allowance for duty-free merchandise from $100 to $300. 2. Standardizes the assessment rate for items having a retail value from $300 to $900 at a flat 10 percent. (In some cases, this may cost the traveler more duty than that assessed under the pre- vious method; however, it is much simpler and will reduce the time involved in duty payment). 3. Increases the standard gift allowance from $10 to $25. 4. Limits the duty-free allow- ance for cigarettes to one carton (there was no previous limit). 5. Limits the duty-free allow- ance for liquor for returning adult residents (an individual— on leave or temporary duty—who is returning to the CTUS for a short visit or limited assignment from an overseas extended duty station— may enter as a "nonresident") to one quart, the same as for resi- dents. Previously, returning resi- dents could bring in one gallon of alcoholic beverages as part of the $100 gift allowance authorized for them. 6. Limits these allowances to once each 30 days and requires that the member must be out of the coun- try for a minimum of 48 hours. 7. Increases allo'-nv-rc for personnel returning from American possessions (American, Samoa, Guam and the Virgin Islands) as follows: (a) Increases the allowance for duty-free merchandise from $200 to $600. (b) Increases the standard gift allowance from $20 to $40. (c) Permits members to mail the allowances under a "goods to follow provision." Previously, items and merchandise had to be carried to be entitled to the duty-free exemption. ICELANDIC AND AMERICAN Boy Scouts gathered to share in a special ham radio operation Sunday at the Scout Hut.
