Physician Sentenced for Income Tax Evasion.—  The Birmingham News reported on April 1 that Dr. Haickel A. Elkourie, Birmingham, was sentenced to one year and one day imprisonment and fined $2,500 on charges of income tax evasion by Federal Judge Clarence Mullins in the U. S. District Court in Birmingham. Dr. Elkourie was also placed on two year probation on a third count of the indictment. The fine and prison sentence were for two other counts. The prison sentence was to begin on May 31, the Birmingham News stated. In addition to the fine Dr. Elkourie will have to pay $27,000, which represents $18,000 the government claims he owes in taxes, plus a $9,000 penalty. The physician was given the two years probation on one of the counts on the condition that he pay this sum. Dr. Elkourie was charged with evading income tax payments for 1941, 1942 and 1943.
