The commissioners' court and city commission have passed resolutions, it was stated, against the issuance of any additional permits as Highway 76 and other thorouphfares are now crowded and additional trucking facilities are not thought to be needed. Additional trucks on the highways are calculated to make additional traffic hazards. Paul H. Miller, county Judge; J. S. Murchlson, mayor, and Fred Prince, police commissioner, plan to go to Austin in the matter Wednesday.

F. McDonald, who said the bureau's gauge recorded high winds of 40 miles an hour, reported the hall fall was the worst to hit here since 1924. The hailstones, between one- quarter and one-half Inch thick, awoke many residents. Some stones caved in windows. .Some power lines were blown down. The worst single damage reported, $43,000, was inflicted on tha block-square Maglnnis Industrial Terminal here where part of the roof was lifted off, allowing hall and rain to pour In. In St. Bernard Parish there was $3,000 damage where the wind blew in a section of the wall of a gambling house and tore off a roof rectlon. Although patrons of the place escaped Injury, they were so frightened the place had to be closed. In the Chalmette area of St. Bernard Parish the damage to cabbage crops, was estimated at more than 75 per cent. Acre after acre of mature cabbages were shredded to the stalks by the wind-driven hall. In other sections of the parish crop damage grew less, marking the degree with which the storm lost its force as H moved southward. Lightning splintered oaks an< hackberry trees In St. Bernard The wind so badly damaged one school that It had to be olosec today. Electric power was cut off there and In Plaquemine for three hours. In New Orleans the wind up rooted trees, almost denuding many of them which already this season were covered with leaves and spread over the streets a green carpet made frosty lookini with its trimmings of unmelted hailstones.

"Even if tho Republican forces in the Southern sector should continue to maintain some show of resistance," the prime minister said, "there can be no doubt now of the ultimate issue of tho struggle, tho prolongation of which can only result In further suffering and loss of life. "As the result of the fall of Barcelona and the overrunning of Catalonia, General Franco is now in control of the greater part of Spanish terrltry, both on and on- yond the mainland. "Included in this territory are the most Important Industrial centers in Spain and the sources of most of her productions. "In these circumstances, His Majesty's government have decided to inform General Franco of their decision to recognize his government as the government of Spain and formal action has been taken In this sense today." Laborites again shouted "Shame!" and Communist William Gallagher cried: "Another betrayer of democracy!" Chamberlain continued: "His Majesty's government have noted with satisfaction the public statements of General Franco concerning the determination of hlm- elf and his government to secure he traditional Independence of Spain and to take proceedings only In cases of those against whom criminal, charges are laid." In response to a question by La- write Clement R, Attlee, opposl- lon leader, he said the government would order a debate in commons tomorrow on its decis- in. When the laborlte persisted In further questions about the prospective debate, Chamberlain snap>ed: "I am not going to be crpss- examinod about particular hours and moments without having notice."

Receiving a negative answer .water department employes and other city officials immediately began a search for a break In the mains and it was finally discovered on South Main street at the main line of the Southern Pacific tracks. The loss of water was stopped by closing two valves after -some five feet had been lost from the west side standpipe.

Tho Italian papers quoted Glgll as saying the Metropolitan Opera, In which he" appeared in New York, was in a state of decadence, partly because financial conditions forced It to open Its doors to artists who were chosen "with judgment not too rigorous." Glgll also was quoted as describing three American singers, Lawrence Tlbbett, Grace Moore and Richard Crooks, as stars "who cost less and substitute notoriety created by publicity for intrinsic value," In Rome today Gigll's secretary said the quotations attributed to the tenor were "Inexact."

For convenience, such allowance usually Is referred to as depreciation. In claiming a deduction for depreciation several fundamental principles must be observed. The deduction must be confined to property actually usod In trade, business, and—or profession, and to Improvements on real property, other than property used by tho taxpayer as his personal residence. In general, it applies to the taxpayer's capital assets— buildings, machinery, etc.—t h e cost of which cannot be deducted as a business expense. A lawyer, doctor, or other professional man may not charge off as a current expense the cost of a library used wholly In his profession, this being a capital expenditure and the library a capital asset; but he may deduct an allowance for depreciation based upon the useful life of the library. If part of a professional man's residence Is used by him for office purposes, a proportionate amount of the depreciation sustained may be deducted, based generally on the ratio of the number of rooms used for sucr purposes to the total number ol rooms In the building. The same principle applies If a taxpayer rents to others a portion of his residence. Under such conditions, however, the taxpayer must .Include In his gross income the rentals received, YOUR FEDERAL INCOME TAX. No. 24. Depreciation Allowances.

If tho taxpayer builds a new building, the period over which depreciation may be claimed begins at tho time tho building Is completed and capable of being used. Buildings under construction are not subject to a depreciation allowance. If It Is colarly shown that, be- causo of economic or other conditions, property must be abandned at a date prrlo to the end of its normal useful life, to that depreciation deductions alono 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 tho opinion of tho taxpayer, the property may become obsolete at some future date. YOUR FEDERAL INCOME TAX. No. 25. Automoble Deductions. With the number of automobile owners registering In tho millions, the question of deductons for the cost of operation and maintenance of a motor oar frequently arizes. Tho purchase price of an automobile, whether it Is to bo 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 tho income tax law. Several deductions, however, aro allowable in connection with the cost of maintenance and operation of an automobile, usod either for business or pleasure. If used oxecluslvely for business, deductions may ho taken for the cost of gasoline, oil, repairs, garage rent, and other necessary operation and upkeep expenses.

The program was devoted mainly to songs and poems commemorating Texas Independence Day next Thursday. Advocates of the liquor sales by the drink proposal were confident It would receive recommendation from a committee but doubtful of house approval.
