BUSINESS (Continued From Page Onsi Panhandle the condition of wheat Is reported the best In several years. In north and west central Texaa wheat Has made favorable progress since tho rain, but the crop has not fully recovered from tha prolonged period of dry weather. More Moisture. Reflecting the betterment in moisture conditions, the review says, livestock ranges In virtually all sections of .the eleventh district showed much improvement In January and are now in about average condition. The department of agriculture reported that prospects for spring ranges In tho district are considered to be better than average. The review says the broad demand for cattle and calves prevailing the latter part of 1938, was well sustained In January at the Fort Worth livestock market. This demand combined with I comparatively light receipts resulted in stronger prices, with some sales bringing the highest r\co of tho current, marketing season. In the last half of January beef cattle were selling at prices averaging about 51 por cent higher than a year ago. In tho first two weeks of February tho market for ,cattle declined slightly; whereas, hog prices increased somewhat from the low level prevailing In January. Cash farm Income In this district declined more than seasonally from November to December, the total being 20 per cent lower than in December, 1937. The decrease resulted In considerable part from sharp decline in receipts from sale of cotton. Latest estimates of the department of agriculture, tho review says, show a less favorable comparison with tho preceding year on cash farm Income in the five states comprising the eleventh district than was Indicated earlier. ' Rcservo Balance* Rise. Reserve balances maintained by member banks with the federal reserve bank rose considerably In January when the reserve city Funeral Rites For Dawson Child Were Held on Thursday Funeral services for Manty Ray .Dawson, aged 2 years, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Dawson, of Dawson, who died Wednesday night, were held at Dawson Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock.

"If an automobile Is used for oth business and pleasure, all of he maintenance and operating ex- enscs connected therewith, which onstltute allowable deductions for ederal income tax purposes, hould be allocated to the two ses on the basis of the time that is used for each. For example, the total expense of operation nd maintenance, plus deprecla- on, for the taxable yearamount- d to $800. and the car was used hree-fourths of the lime for buel- ess and the balance of the time or pelasure, the allowable de- uctlon for federal Income taxpur- oses would be $600. If a law which Imposes n tax n gasoline shows that the tax is mposed on the consumer and not n the dealer, the consumer may educt as a tax, for federal in- xime tax purposes, the amount of he gasoline tax paid by him; but he taxpayer must have kept rec- rds of the payment of such taxes n order that he dcducion may be instantiated as Is required by the aw and the regulations.

The chief executive did not recommend any specific appropriation but said an investigation showed the park "would yield to tho | state a very high return on tho money it would be necessary for the state to Invest." Ponding bills call only for an appropriation of $1,000 to set up an organization for acquisition of the necessary land. Advocates said they might seek a $750,000 appropriation but were not yet certain. Plans contemplate a park consisting of 788,000 acres on tho Texas side of the Rio Grande and 400,000 on the Mexican side. O'Dan- lel pointed out that the park would contain some of the most beautiful ' scenery in the nation. The governor quoted from a lot| ter written him by President Roose| volt last month saying In part: Would Be Gratifying I "If the Texas legislature at this | session should see fit to make an | appropriation for acquisition of I this land It would be very gratifying to me personally, and and I am sure it would win tho general approval of the people everywhere "I have been hoping this park could be dedicated during my administration, my advices are that this large and very Interesting area could be bought for a comparatively small sum—a sum Insignificant In comparison with the economic returns that would flow to the state of Texas and to the nation." O'Danlel said establishment of ho park would result in expendl- .ure of $3,360,000 annually by out- of-state tourists and tho federal government. • Much For Maintenance "It Is estimated," he said, "that he federal government would spend $225,000 annually for maintenance and protection of the park. " * • "It seems to me the increased :ourlst travel which would be wrought about by development of Ihls park would very quickly yield in additional gasoline taxes alone an amount of money which would exceed tho expenditure which the state would have to make to acquire the property." Describing the area, O'Danlel said that "from many large peaks the gorgeous scenery is as impressive as a vast fairy land." Immediately after the mesage had been read in the house, Rep. Lonnie Alsup of Carthage rose to inquire of the speaker if "this is olloctor of us district.

Among the "other expenses" are :lps provided they are reasonable in amount. Traveling expenses are deductible only when the trip is on business. They are limited to such expenses as are reasonable and necessary in the conduct of the justness and directly attributable to It. Traveling expenses Incurred In connection with a journey to another city to accept or seek employment are not deductible. Suburbanites who commute daily from their homes to their places of business are not permitted to deduct the cost of transportation, It being a personal expense. Claims for deduclon for travel- Ing expenses must be substantial, when required by the XJommls- sloner of Internal Revenue, show- Ing In detail the amount and nature of the expenses incurred. No. 28. Deduction for Losses Other Than From Sale or Exchange of Capital Assets. Deductions for losses are divided into four classes, and to be allowed must follow closely tho wording of the income-tax law. Losses are deductible if Incurred (1) in the taxpayer's trade, business or profession; (2) In' any transaction entered Into for profit; (3) from .fires, storms, shipwreck, or other casualties, or from theft; and (4) from wagering transactions. Business losses result, usually, from the purchase and sale of merchandise. Such losses usually are ascertained by means of inventories, which are required whenevor In the opinion of the commissioner of internal revenue their upe is necessary to determine the income of any taxpayer. The term "transaction entered Into for profit" means any kind of business proposition, For example, a taxpayer .purchases an automobile to be used solely for business purposes, and which is sold at a loss. As this is a business proposition from start to finish, the loss Is deductible, subject to the limitations of section 117. :But If he had purchased the automobile to be used,for pleasure or convenience, the deduction would not be allowed: it was not supposed to be an economy session of the legislature?" A bill making an appropriation for purchase of land for the park was passed by the legislature two years ago but vetoed by Governor James V. Allred. Bradbury Falls Again Rep. J. Bryan Bradbury of Abilene failed in a "move to have his latest public utilities bill transferred from the municipal and private corporations to the education committee.

A number of Corsicana breed- era and fancle'rs have visited the n the next throe years. Chairman Shcppard (D-Toxas) of the military committee previously told the senate this was the amount Intended to be spent under the admlnls- ratlon program. Countering Clark's move, Senator Russell (D-Ga) said he would ouBh for adoption of his amendment to remove the 8,000 maximum and permit tho secretary of war :o fix the number of pianos to be acquired. Clark said the bill as approved by tho house carries no specific sum for planes but only a limitation on the number to be purchased. "Under this," ha declared, "the army could spend a billion dollars for new planes and come back to congress to ask for a deficiency appropriation." Some senators indicated disap- S roval of the turn taken by the ebate on the armaments program. Foreign policy has becpmo the principal point of argument. "This whole discussion of national defense has wandered far afield," said Senator Holman (R- Ore) "and much has been said that was not Justified by the actual work of the committee on military affairs."

The house, in approving a $48,000,000 authorization bill, also eliminated a $15,000,000 item for the proposed Southeartern base at Jacksonville. Chavez spoke as the senate resumed consideration of the army and air corps expansion bill. Before the debate began, Senator Clark, woh opposed Increasing the air corps authorization to 6,000, said if It were voted he would seek to limit expenditures for new planes to $170,000,000 in the next three years.

The senate state affairs committee refused it a favorable report yesterday after declining to send it to a subcommittee for rewriting. Senator L. J. Sulak of LaGrange, the author, gave notice of minority report but 16 affirmative votes will be necessary .to keep it alive on the senate calendar. A house committee recently killed a similar bill which pertained only to Buchanan Dam, operated by the Lower- Colorado River Authority. Sulak's proposal was statewide In effect. He stipulated a 60 per cent vacancy in reservoirs but suggested the committee could alter the figure. Asserting he had no Intention of destroying the LCRA or any other public .authority, Sulak said his bill sought only genuine flood protection for property owners along the Lower Colorado.

Committee Opposes Raising Truck Load AUSTIN, March 1.—(£•>—Leglsla- ,lve advocates of a higher motor ruck load limit redoubled their efforts today aftor a 11-10 defeat n the house highways and motor truck committee.

A majority vote in the louse would be necessary for such printing, after which the bill would occupy the same status as though it had been favorably reported. The vote in house committee broke last week's 10-10 deadlock. Rep. E. B. Hamilton of Hlllsboro, abuent from last week's meeting, cuet tho deciding vote. A meeting of the senate highways and motor traffic committee was scheduled late today and there was strong possibility of developments on tho bitterly-argued issue at that time. Most advocates of a higher limit would be satisfied with doubling the present maximum load of 7,000 pounds. No Action on Hunter This Week. AUSTIN, March 1.— (IP)— The controversial subject of a new state highway commissioner remained buried under other legislative matters today with small prospect for revival before next week. Senator Allan Shivers of Port Arthur revealed . the committee <on governor's nominations of which he is chairman would take no action this week on J. C. Hunter, Governor W. Lee O'Dan- lol's appointee. Naming of Hunter', a West Texan, provoked the ire of several Bast Texas Senators. Answering a Question, Shivers said there had been no' request for a hearing on Hunter and the committee probably would not meet before Tuesday. One senator, asked why the committee had not considered the Hunter nomlnatiqn, pointed out an East Texan is now serving on the highway commission. He referred to John Wood of Tlmpson who will continue to serve until the senate confirms a nominee to replace Wood whose normal term expires February 16. AUSTIN, Msffcli 1.—</P>-Gov. W.
