BACKSTAGE IN IOWA POLITICS By GEOKGE MILLS Iowa Dally Press Bureau. It really isn't news when th Iowa democrats seize upon an o] portunity to scorch the republican and vice versa. To have the democrats pass up a opportunity to rip the hides of their old enemies, however, is abou equal in public interest to the man biting the dog. Yet, not a peep has issued from the democratic state headquarter since the G. O. P. approved a plat form of last week's state conven tion. Not that the democrats ar growing particularly charitable Some party members favored a we timid blast aimed at the platform while another group believed it wi do just as well when the campaig warms up. The latter group prevailed. * i* * "1 DO NOT CHOOSE--" Congressman Guy Gillette a few days ago answered a query as to hi mmediate political future by say ing: "I will not voluntarily be a candi date for the United States senate.'

Also with Governor Herring's "I am not considering running for the senate any more than I ever did." Coolidge really did not run. while Herring a short time later became a candidate for the senate. Should Gillette's words be interpreted to mean that he might be a senatorial candidate after all, he would be a toe to Herring, Utterback and Whiting for the democratic nomination. CANDIDATES, RCMOKS. Wherever politically minded people gather, new candidacies spring out of the air, and often vanish back into it. At the republican state convention the following reports were roost nersistentJv beard: Former Supreme Court Judge F. F. Faville of Sioux City may be a candidate against Senator Dickinson and Mayor Manning for the senate. Howard Clark. Des Moines attorney, also may be a senatorial aspirant. Neither report could be verified. Fred Larrabee of Fort Dodge, son of onetime Gov. William Larrabee (1886-1890), was reported to be thinking of trying a "John Quincy Adams." Father Adams and Son Adams served as presidents of the United States. Larrabee was reported waiting for the smoke of the convention to clear before announcing his candidacy for governor. Joe Frailey, Fort Madison wit, was reported to be flirting with the ieutenant governor race, in which Bob McBirnie of Boone and G. .'. Buren are the only entrants hus far. * * * ENEMY'S CAMP. The republican crowd roared with aughter when somebod ygave a bell lop a quarter to page-Gov. Clyde L, Htrrfng In a. hotel lobby crowded with G. O. P. state delegates. Had Herring been present, however, the situation would not have been much different than that created by Verne Vierth when he step- pd into the republican convention. Vierth, who is secretary to democratic State Chairman Birmingham, stopped off in time to witness the attle over the delegates at large. Verne also went all the way to see how the republicans were going about it at the so-called grass roots convention, SALES TAX UPT Last state election the three-point ax program formed part of the ba- is of battle between the democrats nd republicans. In 1936 the same issues may be- ome points of controversy within the democratic primary. At least two prominent candidates or high state offices are reported o be preparing to blast away at the ate net income tax in the demo- ratic campaign. The alternative to ·epeal of the income levy would be boost of a cent in the sales tax, ccording to reports. The boost would be necessary to ; ake up for the $3,000,000 or more ss of revenue which would be in- urred by repeal of the income tax. he added cent would be expected raise around 55,000,000. Groundwork seems to be in the rocess for meeting objections to e boost as increasing the "levy on e poor man." Very little change ill be needed in the "loaf of bread .d bottle of milk purchase group a 3 cent sales tax, it is argued. Starting the tax at 1 cent on purchases of 13 cents, instead of 15 cents as at present, will be sufficient change in that group, according to the theory. The second penny tax would be added considerably sooner, say around 40 or 50 cents, as against the 65 cent figure now used in the 2 cent tax, according to the tentative plan. And the third cent of tax would be added somewhere in the purchase group in the last third of the dollar. The income tax is said to be looked upon with disfavor; first, because the federal government already collects an income levy; second, the cost of collection is higher, around 5 per cent less than 2 per cent for sales tax; third, the tax begins at too low income levels. ATTRACTIONS OF AMES STRESSED Well Located for Giving of Valuable Information to Agriculture. AMES--After observing: an Impressive pyramid of natural granite on Sherman hill near the summit of the continental divide, between Cheyenne and Laramie, commemorating the vision of an American pioneer, J. N. Stonebraker returned to Ames and commented on the things here which attract the stranger. "Thousands upon thousands of travelers like myself," Mr. Stonebraker continued, "annually pass through Ames on this transcontinental trail of steel or paralleling ribbon of concrete, and by the pyramid of granite, that was erected to the memory of a road builder, after whom the city of Ames was named. And without any association of t h e monument with y o u r city. Nothing strange about this. But It only suggests that on every hand opportunities are continually afforded to keep favorable attention centered on any given city. "These early builders of transportation lines were men of vision. No doubt John I. Blair. Chicago North Western railroad official, who named your city in 1864 after his friend, Congressman Oakes Ames, from Massachusetts, along with his fellow builders, looked into the future possibilities for the little village on their line near Squaw fork. Foresaw Future. "It Impresses me in this study oj the setting for your city, that for reasons of its geographic location, and proximity to the state's selected .site for Iowa's state agricultural college and model farm, that these Three Narrowly Escape Death Three Dubuyue youths narrowly escaped death Wednesday when the car In which they were riding plunged down a 40 foot embankment after sldeswiplng another auto a short distance west of Dnbuque on highway No. 52. The youths, Donald Wiegand, 22, Albert Gcrkc, SO, and Ervin Buchholz, 22, suffered only bruises and cuts. Earl Farr, Dubuque, driver ot the other car, was unhurt. (Iowa Dally Press Photo) pioneer builders foresaw the future of Ames becoming a world-known agricultural center. If so their foresight was correct. Ames is located near the geographical center of Iowa, a state that produces as you of course know more foodstuffs from fields and feed lots than any similar area of the world. "With increasing transportation facilities In and out of Ames making these supplies of raw material more accessible to points of process and manufacture, and with, the people of the agricultural area nearer to Ames, your city to me cannot help but become a world known agricultural center of everlasting reputation. But the people of Ames and its environs not onl maintain but promote this reputa tion. Parallel Growth. "Ames was founded to becom the home city of a great agricu tural college and experimenta farm, in a center of the world 1 most productive agricultural area And up to this time, the growth o Ames as a whole has paralleled th growth of the famed college agriculture and mechanic arts an no less famed Iowa highway com mission, both of which appropriate ly afford subjects for future article of this series.

The amount to be recovered by depreciation is the cost of the property, if acquired after Feb. 28, 1913 If acquired by purchase prior to that date, the basis is the cost of the property, less depreciation sustained prior to March 1, 1913, or the value on March 1, 1913, whichever is greater. The proper allowance for depreciation is that amount which should be set aside for the taxable year in accordance with a reasonably consistent plan (not necessarily a uniform rate), whereby the aggregate amount so set aside,, plus the salvage value, will at the end of the useful life of the property equal the cost of other basis of the property. The depreciation rate of a building is not based upon the number of years it will stand before being condemned and razed, but on the number of years it will remain habitable or serviceable for the purpose for which constructed. If the taxpayer builds a new building, the period over which depreciation may be claimed begins at the time the building is com- ileted and capable of being used Buildings under construction are not subject to a depreciation allowance. If it is clearly shown that, because of economic or other conditions, property must be abandoned at a date prior to the end of Its normal useful life, so that depreciation deductions alone are insufficient to return the cost or other basis, a reasonable deduction for obsolescence may be allowed in addition to depreciation. No deduction for obsolescence is permitted because, In the opinion of the tax- payer may become obsoleU at somo tuture date. P. E. O. Officer* Elected.
