These four words first spoken in est, like so many cruel jests, unerringly arrived at the truth. The c o n c e ption of faith, in the life and teaching of Jesus, means ultimate and utter trust in God. Behind and be- jyond this idea religion c a n not go. It underlies all other inter- p r e t a t i o n s o f faith as their leommon foundation. "Though he jslay me, yet will I trust h i m.' 'Religion becomes thus a final relax- D R . S P E R K Y LEADER TRAINING COURSE STARTS HERE THURSDAY ·leads of Boy Scout Units in North Iowa Will Attend Sessions. A training course in "The Elements of Scoutmastership," con- isting of five weekly evening meetings and one afternoon ses- ion will start at the Y. M. C. A. lere Thursday at 8 p. m. and will ontinue for four additional Thursday evenings, Eale K. Behrend, cout executive, announced Wednesday. S. L. Rugland. dean ol the Mason City junior college, and .head of he education department .oE the ouncil, will open the meeting. leading up the course are E. W. Lilly, chairman of the leadership raining work of the council, and he scout executive. John Stokes, scoutmaster of roop No. 12, will be patrol leader at the first meeting. F. C. Heneman, council commissioner, will peak on the aims and objectives of the course, which is open to all boys' leaders in scout work or other organization. Scout leaders from Charles City, Hockford, Nora Springs and other communities, as well as Mason City, have been registered for the ation of the struggle to be self- r e 1 i a n t and self-sufficient is a willing yielding up of one's overstrained nature. Wi pass here into mystery: "With od be the rest." If religion cannot go beyond this, it has no 'one its full way until it has come .hus far. When our theologies are unsettled, our tradition imperiled our theories hard to verify, am* our ideals slow to come to fulfillment--when all these things are .rue, as they are so true today, we 'all back on the meaning of faith o Jesus ot Nazareth. "He trusted n God." Whittier in The Eternal Joodness has come very near the ;ospels: know now where his islands lift Their :fronded palms in air. only know I cannot drift Beyond his love and care. 'raycr: Save us, O God, from all ttempts to rely only on ourselves. Out of the weakness which we now too well make us strong be- aiise we yield back to thee that vhich thou hast granted to us. ive us in our weaviness and doubt untroubled trust in thine Hernal Goodness; through Christ iur Lord. Amen. VOCATiaN TALKS AT ST. JOSEPH'S Dr. H.W. Morgan and Carle Speak at Opening of Vocation Week. Dr. H. W.

Deduction for Losses Other Than From Sale or Exchange of Capita! Assels. Deductions for losses are divided nto four classes, and to be al- owed must follow closely the vording ot the income-tax law. Losses are deductible if incurred 1) in the taxpayer's trade, business, or profession; (2) in any ransaction entered into for profit; 3) from fires, storms, shipwreck, ir other casualties, or from theft; nd (4) from wagering liansar.- ions. Business losses result, usually, rom the purchase and sale of merchandise. Such losses usually re ascertained by means of in- 'entories, which are required vhenever in the opinion of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue their use is necessary to de- ermine the income of any taA- payei; Entered Into Profit. The term "transaction entered nto for profit" means any kind of business proposition. For example, a taxpayer purchases ah automo- 3ile to be used solely for business purposes, and which is sold at a oss. As this is a business proposition from start to finish, the loss is leductible, subject to the limitations of section 117. But iE he had purchased the automobile to be used for pleasure or convenience the deduction would not be allowed; it was not a transaction entered into for profit. A loss sustained in the theft of an automobile purchased for pleasure or convenience is deductible, as it falls in class 3. If, because ot faulty driving but not ot "willful negligence," an automobile maintained for pleasure is damaged, the taxpayer may claim the loss sustained, as it comes within the meaning o£ the word "casi.uuty." Where damages result from the faulty driving of an automobile with which the automobile of the taxpayer collides, the loss occasioned the taxpayer likewise is deductible. Losses on Wasrcrs. Losses from wagering transactions, whether legal or illegal, arc deductible only to the extent of gains from such transactions. The excess o£ such losses over the gains is not deductible. All losses are deductible only to the extent to which they are not compensated for by insurance or otherwise. Deductible capital losses are further subject to the limitations ot section 117. A Castle for a Sorig Here is Lloyd Lohr, builder of a novel moorish birdhousc, as he completed a project he lias made his hobby since last May. (Photo by Hutchins, Russell Studio). Builds Moorish House for Colony of BALL" L. Lohr Constructs Novel* : Bird House With Few Tools'and Knife. know: This Moorish castle, fashioned from scraps of ply-wood and packing boxes, will be one of the more desirable apartment houses for martins this spring in Mason City, i£ its builder, Lloyd Lohr, 42D Tenth street northeast, is, not mis- :akeu in his guess. wlr. Lohr recently finished the 11 compartment martin house, which he has been working on part time since last May. The ouse measures 42 inches from its jase to the highest point and is 16 nches square at the base. The ·ool is constructed of small squares ot copper painted in gay colors. The only tools used in the construction ·'of the house were a saw, plane and hammer. A jackknife was used to carve the balcony rails. A combination of Spanish and Moorish architecture was used in the design ot the house but it appears like a castle from a fairy book story. One-hall inch strips of wood were used for the round lowers in order to make room inside for the birds. Roofs of the towers were made solid by the cutting and rounding oC small pieces ol fence post. The tiny brass hinges on the doors and the tile on the roofs were made from a discarded wash boiler. The brightly painted doors open and close. Mr. Lohr has resided in Mason ity for seven years. Previous to his coming to Mason City he was engaged as a plumber in California. He is 34 years of age and was Dorn at Nora Springs. The bire louse will be placed out of doors this spring, ready for a colony ol martins, and will rent for a song-or more specifically songs. Mason Cityan Not ." Hurt on Rex Trip George A.
