ICE, ONCE TOO THIN, REPORTED TOO THICK IOWA FALLS--Ice dealers who take their product from the Iowa river here have found this year to be a paradox. Before the heavy snows fell, the ice was not of required thickness. Some 12,000 tons were taken from the river at this time. With the coming of the 34 day sub-zero cold wave, ice,froze to a thickness of from 36 to 40 inches and was covered by about three feet of snow on the level. Ice companies have not been able to cut the balance of the crop with the 12 inch circular saws which they have always used. If the ice and snow melts in intermittent thaws, followed by freezes, the remaining ice can be cut when a proper thickness is reached.

Clyde Herring said Tuesday, to make it possible to "quit tapping liquor profits," and enable the state liquor control commission. to cut liquor prices some time within the year.

At present, the governor said, the state is taking $100,000 a month from liquor control commission profits.
