J., was one of the operators to "stand by" for almost 24 hours before and after the ill-fated Imperial Airways flying ship, Cavalier, crashed and sank at sea 300 miles off the Jersey coast recently. Mr. Miller is now 19 years of age and is the son of Mr. and Mrs. George C. Miller, formerly of Mason City, but now of Perth Amboy. Mr. Miller was summoned from lunch when the Cavalier flashed its SOS and he intercepted messages from the Cavalier until it sank. Mr. Miller had been stationed there only six months. He was born in Mason City and attended the Roosevelt school. His father was employed by the Milwaukee railroad while in Mason City. In 1928 the family moved to Perth Amboy. Mr. Miller was graduated from the Perth Amboy high school class of 1936.

JULIA BRYANT CADY YOUR FEDERAL INCOME TAX With the number of automobile owners registering in the millions, the question of deductions for the cost of operation and maintenance of a motor car frequently arises. The purchase price of an automobile, whether it is to be used for business or pleasure, cannot be deducted from gross income. If used for business, it is a capital expenditure; if used for pleasure, it is a personal expenditure--both deductions being expressly prohibited by the income tax law. Several deductions, however, are allowable in connection with the cost of maintenance and operation of an automobile, used either for business or pleasure. If used exclusively for business, deductions may be taken for the cost of gasoline, oil, repairs, garage rent, and other necessary operation and upkeep expenses. Depreciation based on the cost of the car and its estimated useful life, also is deductible. Other deductible items are as follows: Sums paid during the taxable year for registration fees drivers' licenses, personal property tax, and municipal taxes: interest on money borrowed for the purchase of a motor car, either for business or for pleasure; loss sustained by reason of damage whil car is being used for business provided such loss is not covcret by insurance or otherwise; dam ages paid for injury to another provided that the car was being used for business at the time, an the damage was not covered b insurance or otherwise; and th amount paid for insurance 01 motor vehicles used for busines. purposes. MRS. SKAARE IS SCHOOL SPEAKER Talks on Norway at Pupils Assembly at Harming School The fourth grade pupils of Harding school, after completing a study of Norway, were in charge of an assembly to which grades three, five and six were invited. Mrs. R. H. Skaare was the speaker and singer. She told of her girlhood home in a valley in the mountains of Norway, giving a vivid picture of her home life, school, games and the beauty of Springtime Is Picture Time The coming of spring brings new possibilities for the amateur photographer. Many who haven't been so active with their cameras during the winter season will be out looking for interesting subjects. Each week the Globe-Gazette runs the best picture submitted in its "Picture of the Week" contest and sends the winner a check for $3. This presents an excellent opportunity for amateur photographers. That picture you just took of the boy sitting on the plow, of the cattle being driven from pasture, of the baby's first step, of grandfather looking for his glasses might be the one to catch the fancy of the judges. Just fill in the blank below. the mountainsides in spring time where the children played. She also told the pupils about landslides, snowslides, and described coast of Norway as it appeared her when she made a trip to orway a few years ago. Mrs. Skaare, dressed in a Nor- egian costume, sang a number of ongs in Norwegian as she played pon her Imperial harp. She dis- layed a number of articles which he brought from Norway. Pupils in charge of the assem- ly were: engaging the speaker, lichard Sharpe; welcoming the peaker at the door, Marvyl Kiser nd Margaret Bloomfield; intro- ucing the speaker, Jane Jordan; xpressing appreciation, Janelle 3heeka; invitations, Daphne Don- Ison, Harriett Morse, and Betty I Upson; setting up chairs in the as- embly room, Joe Lynch, Frederick Wander, Dick O'Brien, Cas)ar Werstein, Roger Anderson and Bobby Frid; ushers, Marvin Hermanson, Myron Lewis, Alan Werle and Dixie Scheef; welcoming the arents who attended, Barbara Sberal and Sammy Porter. Assemblies such as these that are held from time to time are more than just a novelty for the pupils who are learning how to do things in a real life situation, it was pointed out. It is their contribution in the activity program. New and Used HOUSE TRAILERS AH Sizes -- Attractive Pric House Trailer Sales Co. T. S. VEECH and SOX 524 2nd S. W.

The pho Free Publicity Once again Mason City's Meredith Wilson, music maestro on the "Good News" program, gave the town some free publicity, as the following bit of script broadcast on Thursday's show on the network will attest: "Willson: "I've been out buying you a rug for your birthday, Frank. Actor Frank Morgan: "A rug? Why a rug, Meredith?" Willson: "Because 1 saw your picture in the 'rogue's gallery, heheheh." Morgan: (Groaning) "I'll bet you were a whiz in front of the Mason City drugstores, Willson."

The photographer who does his own developing and printing finds an added joy in his hobby. There is a distinct thrill in seeing a. picture such as the one reproduced above slowly appear on photographic paper. The picture was taken by Marcus Lundberg, Mason City camera enthusiast, on a recent trip to Mexico. Mr. Lundberg developed the film and printed the picture. Father Maurice Sheehy, Father. R. P. Murphy and Movie Star Don Ameche once helped the police in a chase after bootleggers on the Clear Lake-Mason City highway, Father Sheehy recalled last week when he visited here for the first time in four years. The. three had been at the lake for the day. and while returning, were accosted by two motorcycle policemen who asked them to give chase to a car ahead, the event having occurred in the 'bootleg days' of some 15 years ago. Ameche was at the wheel, and he none too vigorously stepped on the gas. Neither of the three meu in the car was too anxious to catch up with the law's prey, but did as Mason City was reached, and the law landed its quarry. howed Mrs. Koester's ZV year 'id son on his sled with his dog hitched to it but lying flat on the ;now.

Jacobs, 45, who committed suicide by hanging at the Chicago and North Western ice house Thursday morning, will be held at the Patterson funeral home Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock. The American Legion will be in charge of services. Burial will be at Memorial Park cemetery. O F F I C I A L ENTRY BLANK 'Picture of the Week' Contest for Amateur Photographers Man-Mountain Again A number of times references has been made to the Mason City interest in that Illinois giant, Robert "VVadlow, based on his brief visit here two or three years ago en route to a county fair in western Iowa. No mention, however, has been made thus far of a second Mason City interest in the young man- mountain. This bottoms on the fact fact that he is being represented in court these days at St. Joseph, Mo., by the brother of a Mason City woman. The lawyer in question is Perry H. Hiles, of Edwardsville. 111., Brother of Mrs. Edward F. Sweetser, 19 Georgia avenue northeast. One of the most interesting and exciting phases of photography is missed by too many amateurs. That phase of photography is the developing of film and the printing of pictures. It might seem absurd to the person who has never printed a picture to state that there is a thrill in working in a dark room on your own pictures. But nevertheless there is a romance, a thrill of discovery, which is exceedingly absorbing. When you take a picture you are only half through with the job. There is a potential picture in your camera, but unless you complete the job, you miss half the fun of photography. Once you experience the pleasure of exposing a piece of photographic paper and watch the image, your picture, slowly appear on the paper as i( lies in the developer, photography will have an added fascination for you. Not Complicated There is a great deal of mystery surrounding the process of finishing pictures, but it is not nearly as complicated as it might seem Many youngsters make quite passable prints before they reach their teens. It is a technical pro cess and as such it requires some experience and practice to be pro cient, but far from difficult. Vlany people make good prints the first time they try their hands at printing their own pictures. If you are one of those persons vho are intensely anxious to see what sort of pictures you have as soon as you finish the roll, developing your own film will have an added importance to you. As soon as you finish the roll, you will be able to develop it at once. Is Simplest Method The simplest method of developing film is to use one of the "light-tight" .tanks which can be procured at a nominal cost. It is necessary to thread the film into the tank in a dark closet, or under a special light which \vill not affect the film. Then the tank can be taken out into the light and the developing process completed. The older method of running the films up and down in a tray is not as convenient as the tank method, but is. a satisfactory method of developing. Printing can either be done in a Toom illuminated by a regular photographic safeiight or by using a new type of paper which can be printed in any room without turning off the regular room illumination. A little practice is all that is necessary to make good prints. THOMAS F. RYAN TO GIVE SPEECH AT 6:30 DINNER Owner of Mid-Continent, Which Seeks Line Here.
