(Continued from page 1) term but that he would not serve a full term himself. The governor prevailed on Hauge to start a new term and-he has now done that! However, he is insistent that' he will leave the board soon. In all probability he'will not leave it until the new prison director and other .experts authorized by the legislature have been named and are at work. The board is on trial so far as the legislature is concerned. Some legislators believe Iowa should have a part-time policy making board. INCOME TAX FORMS. Although much has been written and spoken about the way to fill out the income tax forms, after changes made by the special legislative session, people are still having plenty of difficulty, according to the state tax commission. This is caused by reason of the fact that the blanks were printed last summer on the thaory that the 100 percent tax rate would prevail. However, the special session changed that. Which' makes the forms obsolete. But it is too late to get new forms printed and the paper for them is not available.' Thus, the old forms will have to do. So the problem is to apply the changes made by the legislature to the old forms. Here's "a simple explanation, furnished by tax commission authorities, on how to prepare your income tax return for 1948. Make out the return just as you would normally until you determine what your tax would be before deductions. However, carry only 75 percent of this amount over to the column where deductions are figured. Then make your deductions from that figure, remembering that you now are allowed $30 if you are married and $7.50 for each dependent. If you are single you are now allowed $15.00. These deductions were increased 50 percent by the special session to make your tax bill cheaper. Tax officials say that if you will follow these simple instructions you will have no trouble in filing a proper return. There's no need to pay more than you are liable for, they point out, although some people are still sending in their tax at the 100 percent rate and without benefit of (he new increased deductions. WALLACE. Iowa Democrats were disappointed over Henry Wallace's move in starting a third party movement by announcing his candidacy for the Presidency as an independent. Chairman Jake S. More o£ the state organization said he thought Wallace would not poll more than "100,000 votes in Iowa as an Independent candidate. He said he haled to see Wallace make the move and added that he did not think the Wallace candidacy would hurt the chances of President Truman in the state. This means that the Democratic organization will stay with the Presidential candidate as- everyone expected. However, there were some who felt that inasmuch as the Iowa delegation had, supported Wallace for the vice presidential spot in the 1944 convention at Chicago that lie might still have some support this time whether he at­ tempted to usurp Truman at the convention in Philadelphia or to do as he has now announced he will. JANUARY. As this is written the weather still is on the mild side. But the new year is underway and this may bring us closer to the "cold day" that Governor Blue promised he would announce what he intends to do about his political future. The governor still is keeping his own counsel. You can still find those who say he is going to run for the senate and those who say he is going to run for governor. But the number who say he is going to retire to Eagle Grove is increasing. Could that be the answer? CARROLL LANE. Former State Rep. Carroll Lane of Carroll is going to do something that will intrigue a good many Iowans. Already the owner-operator of a resort hotel at Lake Okoboji during the summer season in Iowa, he's going to take his family to Texas in search of a resort which he can operate during the winter months— thus dividing his time. He's purchased a trailer to live in until settled and plans to look for something in the vicinity of Brownsville, Tex. If he fails to And what he wants he may go to Arizona. He made many friends during his service in the Iowa house of representatives. prevail, one. or two of the old cottages, which were scheduled for eventual destruction, •will be remodeled into apartments for personnel quarters. It may be that the administration building, in a bad state of repair for many year also will be remodeled instead of torn' down and replaced. The more than 800 acres of farm land owned by the state at Eldora will be put on a crop rotation basis next year. BOARD BACKING. Hints that the interim committee may investigate the present program at the Iowa State Training School for Boys at Eldora have brought indications from the board of control that the new superintendent, Charles W. Reed, will have full backing of the board members. The reported investigation is said to be centered around the new security building and the possible use of it as a reception center instead of to house incorrigible boys. The best bet is that it will be used for both purposes since it has two wings. Facts in the case are that the security building has not t yet been put into use but it will be shortly after the first of the year. When it is the boys who are presently confined in the quarters of the former women's reformatory at Anamosa will be brought back to Eldora. There were 13 at Anamosa last week. Two new cottages are going up slowly on the Eldora campus. One is expected to be completed around April while the other probably will not be ready until sometime during the summer of 1948.

After many years of wrangling over whether the state should furnish a home to go along with the highest office in the state—as it does for many of the lesser offices— the committee named by the legislature to purchase a home has acquired one. The home on Des Moines' famed Grand Avenue was purchased for $27,000. It formerly was the home of Gerald S. Nolan, insurance company executive for many years. Because it is in need of extensive repairs, it probably will not be ready for occupancy for nearly six months. Iowa thus becomes one of the 35 states that either furnish a home with the office of governor or pay the rent on a home for him. Many states have furnished homes for years and Iowa has furnished them for certain of its other employes, including all of the heads of the board of control and board of education institutions, the state fair board secretary, the adjutant general. Governor Blue gave an indication that he may not run for a third term when he said that if it would require six months to ready the new residence, he might not move in since he would have only six months left of his term. . The house, together with the $4,500 a year increase in the salary of the office by the 1947 legislature, will do much to entice additional interest in running for the office on the part of many who felt they could not afford to run for the low salary involved heretofore. WRONG CAR. When Harold Gramena of Fenton stopped in Thor for a bite to eat recently, he was somewhat surprised to be "arrested" for taking a Dodge car from a parking lotf Investigation showed that he had left behind, in its stead, his own Dodge which was identical in make, model and color and- had taken a stranger's car by mistake. Prices of fats and oils will remain high in the early part of 1948 says E. S. Dyas, Iowa State College specialist. ; The world is going to be short 8 billion pounds of fats and oils needed for food and industrial use this year. Keeping the poultry flock healthy pays big dividends in high egg production through the winter. But remember that cures and remedies are for sick birds. Don 't treat a healthy flock. * • • • • Keep a deep layer of litter on the henhouse floor all winter. Highest CASH Prices For Your Dead Stock CHARGE ALL CALLS TO US Postville Rendering Co.
