The civil works trommlttea approved a project for the extension of the scrip road late Saturday afternoon. The reversal of the ruling by. the committee, which a few days ago denied an application for. an extension o.f the road, came when the direction and a location of a part of the proposed highway, was changed. The road as now proposed will extend from tho end of the macadam highway, built by scrip, along tho river on the property of Frank Kubiak later connecting with; the old road where it nears' the stream. Copnects With Birch. Instead, however,' of following the stream up to North Carolina avenue, the highway, as now proposed, will cut diagonally northwestward and connect with Birch drive. Thin project was. approved subject to :he procuring of permission from Johnnie Hermanson to cut through his property. Although no statement was made on why the Birch drive connection was to be preferred to the scenic drive along the bank of the river, :he inference was that the "former proposal would have entailed more work than the committee was able to supply thi3 season. The scrip road project, however, was only one of six approved by the committee, the others including remodeling of the city'hall, airport markings, continuation of the c»un- y road building program, filling and grading on city, school grounds and tiling for street drainage at Dougherty. To Remove Partitions. Under the provisions of the remodeling- and repair project there will be work on most of the city ^wned buildings, but the principal i art of the project will have to do nth the removing .of partitions and the rearranging: of rooms in the Ity hall. The plan will provide conslder- ible more space for offices by the limlnatlcn of areas now used for lallways, which will be converted nto office space. As the building- low stands It was designed so that ie west side and basement could )8 used for" commercial purposes and the upstairs for office space. Upstairs Divided. Connecting- doors divide the up- tairs into two, three and four room uites to accommodate various ypes of business. Even before the resent building was . completed, many opportunities were evident hat the space would be rented. For 11 years previous to the con- itruction of this building- the city lall had been located in two store buildings at 209-11 North Federal avenue. All of the offices of city, ncluding- the water department, nillding commissioner, police department, etc., were tucked into :hese rooms. The water department needed room and E. H. Crofoot, manager of the department, after considerable investigation, negotiated the.purchase of the present city hall for ?25,000. An additional $15,000 was spent in remodeling the building making the total cost $40,000. Rent Raised. Before the building was completed,' however, the city council was notified that the rent on the two store buildings, which had been occupied by the city hall, would be raised from ?310 a month to S500 That was in 1924, when suitable business locations were at a premium following changes, where the present five and ten cent stores now stand. This, occupancy forcec the Hentges 1 Clothing store. Stott's Meat market, the Green Mill and the Trafford Music store to seek other quarters. Each of the two stores Occupied by the city hal would bring $250 a month, to the owner, consequently the justified raise in rent. Lowell Forbes waa mayor, ap pointed to finish the term of John McGhee, who succumbed to small nox. It was decided to move all o the offices of the city hall into thi nearlv completed water departmen build'ng and in November, 1924, the building was occupied as the city hall. 555,500 Saved. In tbe time that has elapsed since the change was made, the city has saved itself $55.500 In rent, the huildinR- is now city owned and en tirely free from Indebtedness and the citv has S15.500 to the good In cash in lieu of a bundle of cancellec rent receipts.

Deductions for Professional Expenses. A. professional man may deduct all necessary expenses Incurred in the pursuit of his profession. These include the cost of supplies used In his practice, office rent, cost of light, water, fuel and telephone in his office, the hire of office assistants, and expenses paid in the operation and repair of an automobile, based upon the proportion of time it Is used In making professional calls or for other professional purposes. Many physicians use their resi- dences^hgth as their offices and th'elfT'fio'mes. In such instance the physician may deduct as a business expense the rental value of the rooms occupied for office purposes if he actually pays rent, and also the cost of light and heat furnished these rooms. Also, he may deduct a portion of the wages paid domestic servants whose time is partly occupied in caring for these rooms. Membership dues in professional societies are deductible. Physicians and dentists who keep in their waiting rooms current magazines and newspapers for the benefit of their patients may deduct this item as a business expense. The cost of professional journals for the taxpayer's own use also Is a deductible item. The cost of technical books is not a deductible item, being a capital expenditure, but a proportionate amount for each year's depreciation of the books may be deducted. Depreciation may also be taken on office furniture and equipment. Insurance premiums on office or other professional equipment and liability Insurance may be deducted. Automobile liability insurance · may be deducted only when the automobile is used wholly in pursuit of the taxpayer's profession, and the cost of the entire upkeep may legitimately be claimed as a professional expense.

"Business is beitig conducted up and down the business streets about the same aa any other day and so I see no occasion for closing the courthouse," he said. "Last year on Lincoln's birthday I had occasion to be at the courthouse and there were a number of persons attempting to get in to transact business. Telephones were ringing In all the offices.
