MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 20 1936 75 STUDENTS AT IOWA II OPENING First Classes Held in Rented Building; Second Hand Bell Was Used. IOWA CITY -- A second-hand church bell called 75 students who had responded to a newspaper advertisement into a rented building here just SI years ago. The young men and women, eager for an "education" in the new State "University c; Iowa, paid their tuition fee of 54 each on March 15, 1855 and began their 16 weeks of study under three "professors." Opening Was Delayed. Eight years earlier, the legislature had established the university, but it was impossible to organize classes until the 46,000 acres of government granted land had been sold to provide support money. Research into the university's early history by Marie Haefner of the archives department shows that Abel Beach was the first professor .of languages, Alexander Johnston ,was professor of mathematics and William McGinley later replaced Beach who became ill. The men received a total of 5746 for their ser- · vices. Trustees Were Frugal. Trustees were extremely frugal with funds, for the bell was bought from the Presbyterian church for $76.45 and some seats, desks and blackboards completed the equipment. The informal term ended in July at about the time that Amos Dean of the Albany Law school accepted the first presidency of the young universiy. In September, the first regular academic year began when 124 students enrolled in the departments of ancient and modern languages and mathematics.

All dividends received by residents of Iowa (except stock dividends, liquidating dividends and distributions from federal instrumentalities exempt by federal law) shall be included in gross income. A dividend is defined as any distribution by a corporation out of its earnings or profits, to its stockholders or members, whether in cash or in other property of the corporation. Dividends are presumed to be paid from the earnings of the corporation to the extent thereof, and from earnings and profits most recently accumulated. A dividend received from a corporation located within or without Iowa constitutes taxable income to the recipient, regardless of whether such dividend ig paid from earnings accrued since January 1, 1934, or from surplus and UBdivided profits accumulated prior to that date. Not Distribution. The mere declaration of a dividend is not a distribution. The date of payment is the determining factor as to taxability. Where a corporation declares a dividend in any year, payable to its stockholders in a subsequent year, such dividend will be taxable in the year in which it is received, for until the dividend become payable, the stockholder had no unconditional claim against the corporation and could not demand payment. Where a corporation mails dividend checks to its stockholders in payment of a dividend declared in any year, and such checks could not be received by the stockholders until the subsequent year, the dividends are taxable income in the year in which the checks are received and cashed. They Are Taxable. Patronage dividends distributed by co-operatives to members, and dividends received from exempt corporations, such as banks and insurance companies, are taxable. Dividends paid from funds derived by the corporation from tax exempt securities are subject to the tax. "Stock dividends" are not taxable. A stock dividend is a dividend paid by a corporation to its stockholders in its own capital stock, and should not be confused with dividends on stocks paid in cash or property. Liquidating dividends are taxable only to the extent that they represent distribution of accumulated profits or earnings.

Physicians and dietitians are in complete agreement on the value--yes, the absolute necessity--of meat in the daily menus of children. Meat should be served in limited quantities to children as soon as they have teeth with which to chew it properly. The quantity of meat should be constnatly increased as the child grows older. The adolescent child's diet should include a liberal supply of meat to meet the requirements of this period of rapid growth. For no other food contains all the blood-building, body-building, bone-building elements of meat. No other food builds so well. Visit one of the retail meat dealers listed below.
