The ruling follows: Rule 60--Newspapers. Receipts from the sale of advertising service of newspapers, which advertising appears in the newspaper sold, are not taxable as this is purely a service.

PLANlifOVER ' RIGHTS IN AIR Case of Plane Flying Over Land May Come Up in Montreal Court. MONTREAL (UP)--The question "Who owns the airspace?" may soon come before the courts here for settlement. An indignant suburbanite, annoyed at airplanes flying over his land, threatens to take action in the superior court to keep them from "trespassing." Montreal lawyers say that-such an action would clear up a moot question and that, while the problem is not at present a serious one, it will develop into one of major proportions in future years. B»«ed on Old Maxim. The threatened action is based on the contention that ownership of land carries with it ownership of everything that extends above and below it. This contention, based on an old Roman maxim, "usque ad coelum et ad inferos," has been responsible for many rulings in the courts that ownership of the soil includes everything in the airspace above and everything in the earth beneath, without limit. The courts have decided in the past that firing a shot across the land of another is trespass. So, too, is the stringing of telegraph wires over another man's land. Other Examples Pointed Out. The law has upheld an action in trespass where a tree growing on one piece of land overhung on another, and has even decided that there was trespass where a horse kicked into the space of another's property. This firm belief in man's complete kingship in his own castle has in recent times undergone some changes, however. It is now admitted that private ownership may in some cases be subordinate to public good. The law regarding expropriation is a .case..in. point. '·· Ii r "'th : e'instance, 'of T airplanes," it is pointed r out that flights, are, in the . public., interest, whether it be the flying of passengers or mail. BODY OF BACKUS CHILD IS FOUND Discovered After Father of Boy Is Sentenced for Manslaughter. ROCKFORD, 111., March 30. UP}-The body of Charles Backus, Jr., S year old boy for whose slaying his father was sentenced to prison Wednesday, was found Thursday near a golf course a mile and a half north of Rockford.

The discovery was made at a point on the east bank, along side of the Rockford Country club golf course, about a mile and a half below and across the river from where the father, Charles Backus, told police he stuffed it into a hole in the ice. River Breaks Up. Ice in Rock river began to break up about two weeks ago, it was recalled, and the river has been practically clear for several days. It was to this fact that the re-emergence of the body from its hiding place was ascribed. Backus, 42, who lived in Love park, north of Rockford with his wife, son and two step-daughteri was sentenced yesterday by Judge Arthur E. Fisher in Rock county cir cult court to serve one to 14 yean on a plea of guilty to manslaughte in connection with the death of the boy. Accused by Girls.
