Herman was sen- tenced Monday to one year in the reformatory at Anamosa in connection with the beating o his three-year-old stepson Shawn, on Jan. 24.

The county attorney had recommended Herman be placed on probation if he agreed to undergo psychiatric treatment. Judge Harold Vietor said Her- man would not be placed on probation and that he coulc withdraw his guilty plea since it was based on a plea bargain in- volving a probation recommen- dation from the county attorney. The defendant did not with- draw the plea, and the judge or- dered him to turn himself in to serve the term no later than noon April 22. The child has been placed in a different home. His injuries in- cluded a severe fracture of a land bone. 'Concerned1 over Chief Testing Procedures Truck Firms Drop Request To Hike Rates Dickr Petska, manager of the Chamber of Commerce transportation bureau, says a change in tactics by trucking firms is taking place in the "double bottom truck" issue. Proponents for a 10 percent surcharge on freight into Iowa, which was to compen- sate carriers for "loss of ef- ficiency and resulting fuel costs" due to the Iowa law against 65-foot twin trailers, have withdrawn their plan sub- mitted to the Middlewest Motor Freight bureau. Now, says Petska, firms are urging an amendment to the state legislature's transpor- tation bill to legalize the long trucks. Pelska says the surcharge plan was apparently with- drawn due to pressure by shippers who felt they were being "punished for some-, thing the legislators had done."
