There Is a theory given widespread credence that i community may well be Judged b? lta newspaper. We subscribe tc that theory and gladly admit tha! a .newspaper can be no better generally than the community in which it operates. Any standards of excellence which the Times Herald might attain are only made possible as a result of the cooperation extended this newspaper by its advertiser and readers and residents of this territory. That cooperation is genuinely appreciated Too, there will be no inclination to rest on our laurels. We take what we believe to be justified pride in recent honors won. But that is on past performance. Extensive credit is due no one individual, but to every member of the force as a group. And It will be the sole aim of this group to go right on producing the best papers possible for this community, regardless of journalistic contests. EDITORIAL WE TAKE A BOW " The Times Herald quite naturally is proud of having been selected for an honor at the winter .meeting of the Inland Daily Press association, held the first part of this week in Chicago. This newspaper was cited for honorable mention among papers with circulations up to 5,000 in the seventh annual typography contest sponsored by the Northwestern University Medill School of Journalism. ^Awards for typographical excellence are made each year to association newspapers by Sigma Delta Chi, national professional jour- tftlis 'm fraternity.

The temperamental tempestuous, self-styled and self- made curmudgeon hung up a number of records during his stay in the capital, most of them unofficial.

As I See It By Westbrook Pegler (Copyright, HMO, King Fratnrr-i Sjnillrnltl Throughout his career in the cabinet, there were many Americans who thought that the title of Honest Harold, bestowed on Mr. Ickes with sarcastic intent, was a gross exaggeration. Originally it referred to his suspicious nature which in- M stinctively examined the mo- H tives of others. "Honest Ha I'­ ll, v 1940, Ickes had either changed Ids opinion of Ed Kelly or was stooping to eon* quor. At the height of that stupendously sordid brawl which nominated Mr. Roosevelt for his third tortn and Henry Wallace,'ttmld boos, fdr his first In any elective office, Ickes'was caught in flagrant association with the man he had so recently and ardently despised. He and Harry Hopkins who, to his credit, as wisely never made an Issue of his honesty, turned up In the company of not only Mr. Kelly, but that other despicable fascist, according tit the now- deal Billingsgate of the lime, Frank Hague, of Jersey City. The purpose of their huddle was not reform or civic virtue hut the low, practical politics of the old-time smoke-filled room. They could.'.'t get along without the rascals and their wicked machines so, in that moral crisis, they decided to get along With them and turn to their own political service the very wickedness which they deplored. . .„ .

Daily Reporter. Spencer Bfehtad Hit Scenes- In Washington Sy retet Ed son was recently transferred Council Bluffs area. to the WTASHINGTON, D. C.— (NEA)—Charges that the government "has paid and is paying many millions of dollars in excessive charges #»r the transportation of materials and supplies of the War Depart- 4nent," have been made public after a year's investigation for the ^ • Bureau of the Budget. hi The report is a 140-page volume, well documented, and is one of the most damning indictments of railroad rate-making practices ever made. Credit for making the report belongs fully to Senator Burton K. Wheeler of Montana, who asked the Jtareau of tho Budget to investigate irregularities reported to him on freight rates being charged the War Department for hauling war supplies. In brief, the report points up four principal methods through which the railroads were able to set excessive rates on government freight. 1. As a large part of the traffic was between new shipping points, war plants and bases, there were nd established rate schedules. In calculating new rates, the railroad rate makers arbitrarily fixed $hem higher than they should have been for hauling commercial Jgrelght comparable distances. E Aa much of the war material was classified as new products— • landing craft, landing mats, rockets, radar and combat vehicles, r instance—new tariffs were established. In many cases it is reported that these new rates were higher than comparable commercial 'freight rates on barges, explosives, radios or automobiles and trucks. m 3> in many of these new rates, the rialroads were able to put ^trough what amounted to 6 per cent Increases over established rates. ChU was done through what are known as "Ex Parte 148 Increases". § The government was frequently deprived of reductions in freight t rate,*! due it by law from the so-called "land-grant" railroads— principally roads Of the west which were given big grants of public td as a reward for building their lines.

Termohlen, former Iowan said j yesterday. | Termohlen, acting director of the poultry branch of the Production and Marketing Administration, addressed a meeting of thc Iowa Poultry and Allied Industries council concerning a government order to reduce farm poultry flocks. He told the group that if farmers could find a ready market for their "loafer" hens and pullets, they would be willing lo reduce their flocks in compliance with the 16 per cent reduction ordered by the government for 1946 over 1945. That table shows tax on income up to '$5,000. You can use the 1040 short- form if your in-1 come was less ured into the taxes In the table on tho back of Page 4. The government thus automatically gives you a 10 per cent deduction. But if your deductions actually were more than 10 per cent of income, use the 1040 long-form. * * * Form 1040 is called the short- fice, but not the public eye and ear, self-styled a grasping fellow and with no dissenting opinion from those who know him best. But his most enthusiastic enemy will not allege that he got a dollar of hia fortune illegally. To that extent, then, he IK Indeed "Ilbnest Harold" but that is j faint praise. ! Honesty means more than that, and by other tests Ickes flunked. In the second new deal, Mr. Ickes toyed with a temptation to return to CHicago and run for mayor against Ed Kelly whom he piously regarded as a rascal in heed of turning out. He was not a resident of Chicago in any publicly known sense of the term. * * * * He actually resided in the suburbs of Washington and his only other registered home was on a street called, in "his biography in Who's Who. "Private Road, Winnetka, Ills.,"yet Mr. Ickes said he believed he could establish a :*ine jciplcs. .

The reason—and the difference between the short and long forms—'will he explained here. In filling out the 1040 short- form you start at thc top of Page 1 and work your way down, answering the questions as you go. You need do only the simplest kind of arithmetic. Don't hop around, * * * Most people will need only Page 1. Some, such as thole with incomes from pensions and annuities, will have to answer questions on Page 2. Then you find your tux on. the table on Page 4. You tear off that first page— Pages 1 and 2 are back to back— and turn it irfto the internal revenue colleotor, personally or by mail. If you have to pay money, turn that in with the return. or more or with deductions over 10 per cent- -you have to figure your tax and itemize your deductions. By itemizing them — when they're over 10 per cent-you can claim whatever your deductions are. Husbands and wives: You can file a joint return on thc short- form if your combined income was under $5,000. If your income combined was over $5,000 but individually less than $5,000, you can file separate returns on the short-form or a combined return on tho long-form But one can't use the short-form and thc other the long-form, if your combined income was over $§,000 but individually less than $5,000.
