' A Correction The Algona Upper -Des r Moines issue of Dec. 10 carried 'a story written by Wm. C. <. Dewel regarding 'the spectacular financial success of Ralph M. Ballard, Redwood Falls, Minn.," and a former Algonan. The story was based on a report in the Red^wood Falls, Minn., Gazette, and 'information received from,a local' man who 'was a supposed friend of Mr, Ballard. The Upper Des Moines regrets misinformation carried in the story. Basically, the story was intended to show that in, free America a man can rise from the ranks to affluence, power and financial success. The story erred in stating that Mr, Ballard had • once picked' chickens at Swift's/ and that- a friend had initiated Mr. Ballard into the rendering works business, There were alsto several other references in the, story that Mr, Ballard says were not so. There was no intention of embarrassing Mr. or Mrs. Ballard in the story, and this newspaper regrets \ the 'incident, and voluntarily retracts the story in full with due apologies, Thra» Announce For GdttijtyOffice In 1948 Ballot Political Talk Sfirsi Parties Eye Nominees tip To Figure W State Tax 0| Your Income Compute Same Before But : igure Different .Ttat how individuals 1 shoulc figure their slate income tax was explained in detail-in .a. news release from the State of Iowa Tax Commission, a few days ago. ItiwiJl not be possible <o have (lewl^orms prmted-in tirrfc for filing of 1947 returns, it was stated but instructions on how to figure the conect tax are given. t A-gpecial legislative session recently sat the state income tax at 75% & of the full tax. 4 New Dependent Credit Ta"Jtpaycis snould go ahead and compute their tax in the normal 'ashjon and at the old rates (1% to 5%), and then enter as item A of form IT-1, 75% of that amount. Frpm the amount of tax thus determined, the credits for personal exemptions and dependents may>- be deducted at the revised rated, as follows: For a single individual $15.00. For husband and wife, or head of tfie family, $30.00. Fdr each dependent, $7.50. Irglieu of the $7.50 credit for a dependent, in the case of a father, motljdi or grandparent dependent upon the taxpayer, a deduction of $450 for each such dependent may/'be made in computing net incolne. 1 ,f Who Must File single individual, or if *- -id "not living with SECTIONS^S PAGES Say Violations Of New Year , . .

ForHhc past several years the state has discontinued sending individual blanks to taxpayers, but has .been distributing them in centralized locations where taxpayers may obtain them. In Kossuth county a large supply of blanks is now available on the rpgister in the courthouse hall,- and they may also be obtained at banks and from lawyer's offices,-, as well as other similar sources.
