TEMPERATURE DROP AVERTS DAMAGE FROM FLOOD OLD MR, WEATHER PLAYS ACE CARD IN THAWING GAME Pushes Mercury Down to Stop Rapid Flow of Water Down Streams. Old Man Weather played his trump ace early Wednesday morning and changed his mind about this thawing business just in time to avert possible damage along the banks of Willow creek and Winnebago river. As wild as any March hare he turned on the freezing controls and checked water which had run over lowlands in Forest park even before the ice lias'broken up in the stream. Wednesday morning the surface water, which was run- penses ning high and wide during the previous evening, had subsided about three feet from the highest level reached during the night. YOUR IOWA INCOME TAX Prepared for Iowa Daily Press Association by Slate Board of Assessment and Review. Late Tuesday afternoon the mild weather had caused surface water to run over the ice of the stream and in low places this got out of the stream's banks. West park was under water late in the afternoon and the water level, had reached the basetnents of several homes in the lowlands along the stream. When water continued to rise at about the rate of an inch an hour some families residing in homes on the stream banks on West State street, moved to the Salvation Army headquarters, but the fear n of floods vanished with the change* in weather. First Street Blocked. First street southwest was blocked late Tuesday when passage under the viaduct became impossible. Traffic was routed around on First street northwest. Rain which started late Tuesday afternoon and continued through the early part of the evening plus the large amount of surface water which gathered with the thawing Tuesday was responsible for the rapid rise in the stream during the evening. No damage was reported and although a small amount of ice jammed near the bridge on First street southwest and at the dam in West park, the jams were not as serious as they have been on previous occasions, according to officials. Winnebago Up. The rise in the Winnebago river did -not reach the proportionate heights of the water in Willow creek. Winnebago reached a level 3.75 feet above normal at 11 o'clock Tuesday night. At 11 o'clock Wednesday morning the water level had ;one down about a foot, but since then has been rising and may be expected to reach a new peak for the season late Wednesday. Th e fact that the weather has changed, however, was expected to keep the water from reaching any flood levels in the immediate future. Back in Banks. Wednesday afternoon the water had receded within the banks of Willow creek, according to officials, and they believed the peak had been passed. It was believed, however the Winnebago river had not reached its peak yet, but probably would Wednesday afternoon. Ice has not broken up in either stream yet. Some dynamite was used on Willow creek Tuesday evening to open ice where jams were apt to occur. Employes of the Mason city street department remained on duty through the evening to break up ice jams should they occur. Storm sewers and gutters were being opened throughout parts of the city where water has been collecting due to ice. TKAVELING EXPENSES A deduction for traveling expenses is allowable in a case where a taxpayer is "away from home in pursuit o£ trade or business." Where such deduction is claimed, the taxpayer must attach to his return a statement showing the nature of business in which engaged, number of days away from home during the taxable year on account of business, and an itemized record of expenses paid, including cost of transportation, meaLs and lodging, and other ex- incident to travel claimed as a deduction as "ordinary and necessary expenses." If the taxpayer receives a salary as full compensation without reimbursement for traveling expenses, or is employed on a commission basis with no expense allowance, his traveling expenses may be claimed as a deduction.

Before an audience that chuckled throughout the performance, students of Miss Ruth Irons' oral English classes presented four original one act plays in the high school auditorium Tuesday evening. Margaret Molsberry as mistress of ceremonies introduced the student directors of the two mysteries and two comedies enacted. "Out of the Past," written and directed by Domini Haynes, told of mysterious complications arisin^ from the reading of a will. Leslie Stock in the role of an attorney sent the. chills down the spines of the audience when, reading the will of a wealthy man before a group of relatives, he drops dead. It is left to Carl Goldstein, his assistant, to clear up matters. He takes the situation well in hand, and the curtain falls as Bill Smith as the hunchback murdered reveals his attorney victim to be a crook, displaying the will in its original form. Rita Dugan, Dorothy Zander, Earl Crabb, and Telford Erackey, portraying the relatives, ably assisted in the mysterious actions, as did Earl Milten- burger and Bucna Bogardus in roles of butler and maid, respectively. Brought Many Laughs. Unwinding comical sequence of a detective's clients, "The Name Is Kelly" by Dick Zarling brought forth many hearty chuckles. Roger Pedelty portrayed the detective whose tracing the robber of a valuable necklace Brought him unexpected success. Clifford McCloud and Thomas Rye in the roles of two hard-boiled burglars didn't fall short of bringing the old school hold-up men to the audience. Adding an unique variety, Betty Chapman in her chorus girl role, proved the play to be up-to-date. Evelyn Thomas, Keith Pashusta, Lizbeth Baker, Don Harrer, and Bill Schnoble portrayed their various parts effectively. Outstanding in the comedy was Winifred Storer, as the detective's witty secretary, who always seemed one step ahead of her boss. The play was directed by Helen Lloyd Jones.

Bill Gamble, Estelle Schneider and Donald Berg, composed the Dayton family, who were fortunate and unfortunate enough to inhabit the inn. When at night, Arland Chapman strolled into the living room in the form of a ghost, the Daytons decide to look into the matter. The burglar, forced to admit his attempted theft by Claire Bemiss. the sheriff, supplied clues that led the family to find the inn's hidden treasure. Killie Negoniir skillfully enacted Lily Pond, an old-fashioned maid, who came to the home as a boarder. In supporting roles were Sarah Katz, Lillian Tokman, and Charles Young. Donald Sobicske directed the mystery. About Movie Star.

"SOCIAL SECURITY" IN THE PRINTING TRADES The Printing Trades Unions, with which the printers and pressmen of Mason City are affiliated, were caring for their unemployed members long before most of the present talk of "Social Security" and like plans had even started. The International Typographical Union established an old age pension plan in 1908 "and has since paid $20,441,811.00 to 11,763 pensioners, and during 1935 paid 51,939,304.00 to 4,883 pensioners, each o£ whom received $8.00 a week. Since January, 1912, the beneficiaries of 21,285 union printers have received $8,868,228.02 in death benefits, and during 1935 death claims amounted to $534,498.12. The Typographical Union in 1892 built a home at Colorado Springs, where aged and infirm union printers have been cared for at a cost of $7,024,087.07; the cost for 1935 being 5284.402.31. The International Pressmen's Union pays annually in pensions. S103.944.00: $162,302.88 in death bcnelits. and maintains in Tennessee a home for union pressmen at an annual cost of S19n.ij35.20. and is now creating a fund for widows' pensions. These beneficial features, of course, are subject to certain requirements ns lc age and continuous membership. But the entire cosl is borne by the printers' and pressmen's unions. The Mason City Printers' Union has one member at the printers' home and two members on the pension roll, living in Mason City and each receiving pensions of 58-00 a week. If you feel that these little known features of the printing trades unions arc worthy of indorsement, you should insist that the Union Label be placed on your printing. It identifies your printing as the product of competent union workmen, members of organizations which are truly "their brother's keeper."
