The engineers, he said, had mapped out a complete plan of con- rol through stream reservoirs. The stimated cost was more than a mil- ion dollars. He said the engineers abeled the plan feasible but said its enefits would not justify the cost.

Mason City Store--211 North Federal Ave.--Phone 756 NEW SERVICE AT IDEAL AMERICA* Local Laundiy Announce Modern System of Zoric Cleaning. A new and different type o cleaning service is now available t the peopje of Mason City and'victa ity, according to W. J. Holahan. I is called Zoric cleaning and is beta offered by the Ideal American laundry, 30 First street southwest. In describing this modern system Mr. Holahan said, ''It is a new pat ented process and uses a cleaning fluid which can neither burn no explode. This Zoric fluid, with it. positive cleansing qualities, pene trates every type of fabric thor oughly and removes every trace o: dirt, yet. its action is most gentle and. rejuvenating. It restores the original new-like appearance and feel to men's and women's gar. ments." Everyone in this community has been invited to visit the Ideal American and to inspect the new Zoric equipment and see the quality of work it turns out, Mr. Holahan stated. "One of the many outstanding advantages of Zoric dry cleaning is the fact that garments have absolutely no odor of any kind,' 1 Mr. Holahan said, "and sheer chiffons come back filmy, _ but not flimsy. Silks and satins take on a glistening- sheen. Colors brighten up. Tweeds, serges and woolens come from their Zoric beauty treatment with the nap raised and with the look and feel of newness." YOUR IOWA INCOME TAX Prepared for Iowa Daily Press Association by State Board of Assessment and Review. CASUALTY, THEFT. To be deductible, a loss arising from damage or destruction o property must be connected with the taxpayer's trade or business. I his home, his automobile or his personal property of any kind is damaged or destroyed by fire, storm flood or other casualty, he may claim no deduction for ths !o=s sustained. Losses from theft or burglary are deductible only when in connection with trade or business. It must be established, however, that the property actually .was stolen. If there is a question as to whether the prop erty was stolen or lost, the claim will not be' allowed. Losses from wagering transactions or in connection with any illegal business or transaction are not allowable. A loss is deductible only in the year in which it occurs, even though the loss may be discovered in a later year. There must be deducted from the claim any amount compensated for by insurance or otherwise, plus the salvage value if any. Losses for which an amount may be deducted for income tax purposes must be evidenced by closed and completed transactions, evidenced by convincing proof. When a deductible loss occurs in one taxable year and the insurance is not recovered during that year, the taxpayer should compute his loss by deducting from the total loss sustained the estimated amount of recoverable insurance or other reimbursement. The net losses so estimated may be deducted in the year or occurrence, and an amended return filed later to correct any error in the estimate. In a case where loss ia sustained by inventory "stock in trade,'' the loss will be reflected in inventory, and the insurance received should be reported as income. Loss resulting from damage or destruction of a motor vehicle will not e deductible if it resulted from neglect or carelessness on the part of the owner of tie vehicle or Ms employe. Jewish People Will Observe F e s t i v a l of Purim This Week-End Congregation Adas Israel, 621 Adams avenue southwest, will conduct its next regular service Friday evening- at 8 o'clock. Rabbi Avery Jonan Grossfield officiating. The topic of the sermon wilj be: "Tie Festival of Purim." The Jewish people throughout the world will observe the annual festival of Purim (Feast of Lots) beginning at sundown Saturday evening, March 7. and continuing through Sunday, Rabbi Grossfield stated. This feast is described in detail jn the Old Testament "Book of Esther," and part of the synagog service for this festival consists in chanting the Book of Esther from parchment scrolls written by hand. Purim occurs on the fourteenth day of the Jewish month of Adar and is a joyous occasion, celebrated with carnivals, masque plays, masque parades, dances and banquets, he pointed out. A special delicacy for Purim is a three-cornered cake filled with poppy-seeds and raisins, which is called "Haman-taschen;" it is either made large and sliced, or in small individual sizes. Congregation Adas Israel will celebrate Purim with a dinner which will take place Sunday evening, March 8, at 6 o'clock in the Jewish community center. After an interesting program of entertainment, dancing will be in order, according to the plans of Mrs. William Garfin, chairman of the committee in charge of this event.
