The amount to be recovered by depreciation is the cost oC the property, if acquired by purchase after February 28, 1913. If ac, quired by purchase prior to thai, date, the basis is the cost of the property, less depreciation sustained prior to March 1, 1918, or .·the value on; March 1, 1813, "'whichever is greater. · ' _ : ; ',: The proper allowance for de- ··preciation is that amount which should be set aside for the tax- 'able year in accordance with a reasonably consistent plan (not necessarily, a uniform rate), whereby the aggregate amount so set aside, plus the salvage value, will at the end o£ the useful life of the property equal the cost or other basis 'of the property. .' The depreciation rate of a build- ·ing is not based upon the number of years it will stand before being condemned and razed, but on ,the number oE years it will re-main habitable or serviceable for -the purpose for which constructed. ' IE the taxpayer builds a new building, the period over which depreciation may be claimed begins at the time the building is completed and capable of being used. Buildings under construction are not subject to a depreciation -allowance. . If it is clearly shown that, bc- ;cause of economic or other conditions, properly must be abandoned at a date prior to the end ;»£ its normal useful life, so that depreciation deductions alone are insufficient to return the cost or other basis, a reasonable deduction for obsolescence may be allowed in addition to depreciation. No deduction for obsolescence is ·permitted because, in the opinion of the taxpayer, the property may become obsolete at some future date.

MARCH'S · 1937 Paul Muni, Luise Rainer Academy Award Winners Vienna Actress and Veteran of Stage, Screen Honored by Film Industry. By HOMER McCOY HOLLYWOOD, Cal., (P)--Golden statuettes, the academy awards for motion picture greatness-and irreverently known as "Oscars"--were proud possessions Friday of Paul Muni, stage and screen veteran, and Luise Hainer, comparative ' newcomer from Vienna. The two highest honors of the Academy o£ Motion Picture Arts and Sciences were presented at a gala affair Thursday night attended cnmasse by the film colony. Muni's performance in the title role of "The Story of Louis Pasteur," was adjudged ihe best work done by a motion picture actor in 1936. Miss Rainer, as glamorous Anna Held in "The Great Ziegfeld," won the prize for actresses. Outcome as Expected. The customary storm of controversy did not develop when the winners were announced. The results had been predicted quite accurately. Muni has expressed belief that his work as Pasteur, the French scientist, was his most satisfying in motion pictures. Miss Rainer gained her signal honor in her second film here. Critics generally believed Spencer Tracy as the priest in "San Francisco" ran Muni the closest race. The other three nominations Cor best actor were .Gary Cooper ("Mr. Deeds Goes to Town"), Waller Huston ("Dodsworth") and William Powell, ("My Man Godfrey.") Capra Besl Director. Pitted against Miss Rainer were Irene Dunne in "Theodora Goes Wild," Gladys George in "Valiant is the Word for Carrie," Carole Lombard in "My Man Godfrey," and Norma Shearer in "Romeo and Juliet." Frank Capra, whose work is :haracterizcd by deft lightness and slightly mad whimsy, won the award for direction for the second consecutive year, with his comedy hit "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town." The year before he scored wilh "It Happened One Night." It was generally felt that it would have been no mistake, either to give the prize to W. S. "One Take" Van Dyke for his direction of "San Francisco." The production award of merit for "The Great Ziegfeld" aroused, uerhaps the most argument by "experts." Brcnnau. Gets. Mention. Walter Brennan, 'as Swede Bos- tirom in "Come and Get It," was selected as the best supporting actor o£ the year. Gale Sonder- »aard, the lire wish,- canny Faith 11 "Anthony Adverse," was the outstanding supporting actress. Other awards included: Cinematography, Tony Gaudio for Anthony Adverse;" sound recording, Douglas Shearer for the quake scenes in "San Francisco'" art direction, Richard Day for 'Dodsworth;" assistant direction Tack Sullivan for "The Charge of the Light Brigade," writing (Screen Play) Sheridan Gibney and Pierre Collings for "The Story of Louis Pasteur," and writing (original story) to the name pair. Walter Disney, wilh his Mickey Mouse "Country Cousin," won he best cartoon award for the fifth consecutive year. A special award, last year given to David Wark Griffith pioneer film producer, was bestowed upon "The March of rime, screen news feature. All winners received statuettes --heavy gold-plated figures O C nude males--"Oscars." The "Oscars" glitter brightly on grand jiano tops--and make excellent door stops as well.
