MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 20 fÂ§ 193C, THREE STERILIZATION SEEN COMMON Two Surgeons Fight Criminal Charges in Ann Cooper Hewitt Case. SAN FRANCISCO, UP)--The sterilization of diminutive Ann Cooper Hewitt may expose such operations as "a common practice" declared Municipal Judge Sylvain J. Lazarus as two surgeons fought criminal charges in the case Thursday. "I am told sterilization is a common practice," he said in holding Dr. Tilton E. Tillman and Dr. Samuel G. Boyd for superior court trial on mayhem conspiracy charges. "If so--and this case doesn't do any other good--perhaps it will prove valuable in disclosing the situation." Although technically he bound the two surgeons over for trial, the judge said he would delay formal hold order until Feb. 28. The delay was to permit them time to file habeas corpus petitions. They offered no defense evidence during the hearing. The 21 year old heiress to the f Â· tune of the late Peter Cooper Hewitt charged in a $500,000 damage suit that she was tricked into the operation by her mother, Mrs. Maryon Cooper Hewitt. She asserted the mother would benefit from her inheritance should she remain -chilli- less.

Deductions for business expenses rm a large item in the return of many taxpayers and must have certain qualities to be allowed. Such deductions must be for an expenditure in connection with the maintenance and operation of the taxpayer's business or business properties; it must be an ordinary expense and it must be a necessary expense. In insisting upon the latter qualifications, the bureau of internal revenue is upheld by the board of tax appeals and the courts. Ordinary and necessary expenses are only those which are usual and essential in the case of similar taxpayers, "and do not include extraordinary and nonessential expenses." Typical business expenses of a m e r c a n t i l e establishment a r e amounts paid for advertising, hire of clerks and other employes, rent, light, heat, water, stationery, telephone, stamps, property insurance, and delivery expenses. The expenses of a manufacturing business include labor, supplies, repairs, light and heat, power, sellin cost, administration, and other similar charges. The Â· farmer may deduct all amounts paid in the production, harvesting, and marketing of crops, including labor, cost of seed and fertilizer used, cost of minor repairs to farm buildings (other than his dwelling), and small tools used up in the course of a year or two. A taxpayer may conduct more than one business and claim the business deductions of each. Here and There It's the talk of the town I Not, in years has such sensational value news hit this fair city.
