MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY ID M ia87 SEVEN BEHREND TALKS TO LIONS CLUB Says Character Building and Citizenship Are Broad Objectives. Character building and citizenship training are the broad objectives of Boy Scouting, Earle K. Behvencl, North Iowa area executive, told the Lions club at its weekly luncheon in the Hotel Hanford Wednesday. u "But to the boy," he said, "these objectives are not so evident. He is interested in our program because it's made interesting. It hav- " nesses and utilizes the gang spirit which is so highly developed in ;;boys £ Scout age. It bottoms on another well recognized principle ot boy psychology, that o£ learning · by doing." Mr. Behrend traced scouting ' from ils beginnings in England, · conceived in the mind of Sir Rob- ;'ert Baden-Powell, who has lived to see his vision materialize in unexpected dimensions. A Chicago publisher in 1910, contacting ; Scouting through a "good turn" , to which he fell beneficiary, ' brought the program to America and the movement is now begin- · ning its twenty-eighth year here. "We're proud of our achievements in Scouting," Mr. Behrend concluded. "Proud--but not satisfied. We'd like to bring the program to jpore boys. And }ust one thing stands in the way of that: objective. We need more adult leadership. There's a challenge in Ihis for every business and professional man." · Allen Patton ot the Kayenay Engraving company was elected into membership in the club. Miss Carol Bell of Clear Lake entertained with three whistling numbers. Fred Shaffer was at the pi- · ano. John Shipley, a past president, presided in the absence of ,1. H. Marston and Cecil Maudsley introduced the program. Carl W. Blumenstiel, Mrs. Ida Bruns Wed at Rockford Church Carl W. Blumenstiel, Mason City, and Mrs. Ida Bruns, Rockford, were married at the Lutheran church of Roclcford "at high noon Wednesday, with the Rev. Fred Darnaur in charge. They were attended by a daughter and son-in-law of Mr. Blumenstiel, Mr. and Mrs. M. E. Riley, Mason City. Mr. Blumenstiel is employed at the Potts jewelry store at Mason City.

WAUKON, C/P) -- Sheriff John King supervised destruction of 40 'gambling devices, including slot ·machines a n d pinball' g a m e s , seized in raids at Poslville and Waukon. comes name EVert|5uncla 0 Taxpayers should note t h a t under the Revenue Act of 193!) the credit for dependents as well as (lie personal exemption is required to be prorated where a change of status occurs during the taxable year and that these credits are allowable not only for the purpose of computing the normal tax, but also the surtax. A fractional part at a month is to be disregarded unless it amounts to more than half a month, in which case it is considered a month. For example, a single man and single woman who were married on July 20, 1930, and were living together on the last day of the taxable year, may file a joint return. If they file their return or returns on the basis of the calendar year, they would be entitled to a personal exemption of $2,203.34, which is seven- twelfths nf $1,01)0 for the husband while single, plus seven- twelfths ot 51,000 for the wife while single, plus five-twelfths ot $2,500 for the period during which they were married. It separate returns are filed each is entitled to a personal exemption of $1,104.17 which seven-twelfths ot 51,000, plus, one-half o[ five-twelfths of $2,500. If during the year 1836 the husband or the wife had the status of the head of n f a m i L prior to their marriage he or she would be entitled to his or hei prorala share of the personal ex- 'emplion of S2,.iQO allowed the head of a family for the period prior to their marriage ins teat of merely that allowed a singli person. However, for the period o their marriage any exemption tc which either might be entitled a the head ot a family would b merged in the joint personal ex emplion for that period. The join personal exemption allowable i the case' of a couple who wer married and living together dur ing the entire year may not ex cecd $2,500. If a child under 18 years of ag and dependent on the parent fo support reaches the age of 1 years during the taxable yeai the credit of S'100 for a depend ent is required to be prorated i the same manner as the persona exemption. For example, shoul the child's eighteenth birthda fair on June 30, Ihe parent woul be entitled to claim $200 credi for the dependent child--that is, one-half of 5400. The same rule applies to o t h e r dependents where a change of status occurs during the taxable year. MISS D, HANLON PLANS PROGRAM Virs. Rob Roy Cerney lo Judge Declamatory Contest.
