HAMILTON Training for Business YOUR FEDERAL INCOME TAX "A professional man may deduct all necessary expenses incurred in the pursuit of his profession. These include the cost of supplies used in his practice, office rent, cost oE light, waier, fuel and telephone in his office, the hire of office assistants and expenses paid in the operation and repair of an auto-: mobile, based upon the proportion " v of time it is used in making professional calls or for other professional purposes. Many physicians use their residences both as their offices and their homes. In such instance the physician may deduct as a business expense the rental value of the rooms occupied for office purposes if he actually pays rent, and also the cost of light and heat furnished these rooms. Also, he may deduct a portion of the wages paid domestic servants whose time is partly occupied irj caring for these rooms. Membership dues in professional societies are deductible. Physicians' and dentists who keep in their waiting rooms current magazines and newspapers for the benefit of their patients may deduct this item 'as' a business expense. The cost of professional journals for the taxpayer's own use is also a deductible item. The cost of technical books is not a deductible item, being a capital expenditure, but a proportionate amount for each year's depreciation of the books may be deducted. Depreciation may also be taken on office furniture and equipment Insurance premiums on office or other professional equipment and liability insurance may be deducted. A premium paid for automobile liability insurance should be apportioned and that part oE the premium at- iributable to business may be deducted as a business expense.

HOPE TO FINISH BUILDING BEFORE '39 EXPOSITION $26,000 Structure to Be Located on Same Site as Old Building A new, modern merchants' building to cost an estimated 526,000 will be ready for the 1939 North Iowa fair, the executive committee of the fair association announced Thursday. Plans for construction of the building before the Aug. 13 to 18 exposition- were completed at a board meeting Wednesday evening at which it was decided to take advantage o£ the WPA funds allocated to the project while they are still available. Aware that this year might well be its last opportunity to obtain the benefit of federal funds which have been allotted to the works progress administration project inaugurated at the fairgrounds late last June, the committee felt that now is the logical time to undertake the second section of that project. To Seek New Capital New articles of incorporation were recently completed, so that additional capital of §20,000 might be sought \yith which to continue the rehabilitation program. Of this amount, it is pointed out that, since much of the cost o£ the building will be furnished by the WPA, the fair, management would be enabled to pay. virtually all of the fair's outstanding bills in addition to completing the proposed building. The new entrance has been completed for some months and the completion of the double underpass under the east end of the race track, excavation for which was finished before the advent of cold weather, now awaits merely the warmer season. 3D by 200 Feet in Size In connection' with the proposed new building the architectural firm of Hanson and Waggoner is now engaged on detailed plans of the structure which are to include provisions for year around use. Tentative negotiations are also under way for an off season lease of the building for amusement enterprises, which should provide a good monthly income through ensuing years, the committee asserted.

The committee appointed by President R. D. Bobbins to formulate plans lor immediate distribution of the necessary stock issue is composed of Harlan W. Girton H. D. Reynolds and Carl A. Henkel. The committee is expected to report its recommendations within the next few days with the drive to be undertaken shortly thereafter.
