Held Taxable by D. C. In Appellate Ruling The United States Court of Ap-' fceals yesterday, in one of its busier days, handed down 10 decisions. Among them was one which up held the District Board of Tax Appeals in ruling that the Mer cury Press, Inc., of the 1300 block of Green Court N.W., was subject to personal property tax on newsprint imported from Canada and on hand here during the fiscal year ended last June 30. The corporation had contended that so long as the imported ar ticle remains in its original pack ages, it cannot be taxed. Tax Paid Under Protest. The appellate court disagreed. “There was ample power for the tax in the case at bar,’’ the court said. The tax on the paper, it was said, amounted to S727 and was paid by the corporation under pro test. In another ruling, the Court of Appeals held that a contract for the purchase of a liquor store in the 1400 block of New York avenue N.W. was void because it was im possible for the ’buyers to obtain a liquor license, since they were not residents of the District. The case involved Israel Rudberg and Thomas P. O’Neill of Shenan doah. Pa. David Brown, who had contracted to sell the liquor busi ness, later sold it to others, ac cording to counsel. Award Ruling Reversed. In another case, the Court of Ap peals reversed District Court and held that the parent* of Navy Air plane Pilot Herbert S. Cohn, who was killed, should receive the $10,000 •ervice insurance instead of his Widow, Mrs. Helene S. Cohn. The parents are Mr. and Mrs. Morris B. Cohn, 7444 Georgia ave nue N.W. The appellate court held that the widow, Mrs. Helehe S. Cohn, who formerly lived in the 3300 block of Davenport street N.W., had not provided proof that her husband had changed his mind and desig nated her as the beneficiary.
