MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, AUGUST S 1935 NINE ·TREASURY GETS WORK AID FUNDS Statistical Compilation to Be Made of Income Tax Returns. WASHINGTON, Aug. 8. UFi-- President Roosevelt today allotted $1,200,000 of work relief funds to the treasury for a statistical compilation and an analysis of income tax returns, notably those of the "little fellow." The treasury saia there is a "mine of factual material" to be obtained from an analysis of $5,000,000 of smaller income tax returns for 1933 and 1934. Because of limited facilities up to now, it was said, no broad scale analysis of returns of less than $5,000 has hitherto been attempted. The treasury will handle the undertaking as a relief project. The works administration taid the $1,200,000 for a compilation of tax returns would be spent in mid- western states as follows: Illinois, Chicago, $55,356; Springfield, $3,732; Iowa, Des Moines, ?3,732; Minnesota, St. Paul, $3,732; Nebraska, Omaha, $2,340; South Dakota, Aberdeen 52,340; Wisconsin, Milwaukee, · $5,124. Funeral Service Held for Mrs. Gunderson, Worth County Pioneer NORTHWOOD, Aug. 8.--Funeral services for Mrs. Guro Sanderson, 90, were held Wednesday afternoon at her home 3 miles west of Northwood and at Shell Rock Lutheran church near the Sanderson home. The Rev. J. W. Ylvisaker conducted the rites. Burial was made in Shell Rock cemetery. She died following a long illness. Mrs. Sanderson, one of the oldest residents of Worth county in point of time spent here, lived near Northwood for nearly 80 years. Born Aug. 3, 1845, in Aal's Parish, Hallingdal, Norway, she came to America with her parents, Mikkel and Guri Paulson, in 1853. They settled in Worth county in 1856, only three years after the first white settler located in the county, coming' from Wisconsin where they lived from 1853 to 1856. In the Paulson home west of Northwood the first recorded church service in Worth county was held in 1S58. Their home was a center of religious activity prior to the erection of the first church structure. She was the only member of the Shell Rock Lutheran congregation who had held membership- continuously during the.76 ,'years of its past history. She was married at West Mitchell, Iowa, Aug. 24, 1863, to Soren Sanderson. Shortly after their marriage her husband left for the Civil war, returning in September, 1865. Eleven children were born to them, two of whom died in infancy and two, Gena and Inga, in adult years. Mr. Sanderson died on Dec. 26, 1915.

(JP--The ast of this session's regular appropriation bills, known as the second deficiency measure, lay on President Roosevelt's desk today. Congressional action on it was completed yes- erday. Providing for $272,000,000, it is a sort of "catch-all." Among other things it provides: Two million five hundred and 'ifty thousand dollars to air cool parts of the capitol andthe senate and house ofifce buildings: $1,478,152 to compensate United States smployes abroad for decreased purchasing power brought about by appreciation of foreign currencies; :325,000 for a legation residence in Ottawa; $3,000,000 for the Texas Centennial Exposition; $375,000 for an Indian sanitarium in South Da- cota. 3ne Man Killed and Man, Woman Injured Seriously in Crash WEBSTER CITY, Aug. 8.

Mitchell May Appeal From Court Defeat in Income Tax Case WASHINGTON, Aug. 8. UP)--The next move in the Charles B. Mitchell income tax fight, in which the former chairman of the National City bank of New York suffered a $1,200,000 defeat yesterday, depends on whether he decides to appeal. The board of tax appeals, in a decision which labeled part of Mitchell's income tax returns as "fraudulent," ruled yesterday that he owes the government the greater part of a 51,275,645 tax claim preferred against him. ' Mitchell has the right to appeal to the circuit court of appeals and thence to th e supreme court. If he does not, the government presumably will put its collection machinery into motion. The decision yesterday noted that Mitchell's fortunes declined from a "net worth" of about $30,000,000 on Dec. 20, 1929, to insolvency "by an amount in excess of 53,000,000" on March 24, 1932. It did not say anything about his present financial status. Mrs. Gloria Vanderbilt Wants to Carry on Her Fight for Her Daughter SOUTHAMPTON, Eng., Aug. 8.

"But it's S100.000 against $78,- i 000,000--what can I do?" 1 WARDS PRICE TAGS PROVE IT Priced to Save Money YOU'LL JOURNEY FAR AND NOT FIND BETTER Travel Prints For Misses, for Women, for Larger Women Jacket styles so you can wear them now and right on through the Fall.
