How Population Shift May Affect Congress THE trend toward the cities, not yet reversed by a trickle 1 bade to, the country in recent years, is a notabfe phase of today s lite. According to the National Resources Committee tms-urbanization has gone on as follows: Tn 1790, only 3 per cent of the people lived in cities. In 1830, the figure was 7 per cent. InlSaO, it was 26 per cent. In 1930, it was 56 per cent. In other words, by 1930 we had arrived at a point where more than half of all the people in the country were living in "*•"- ^The percentage is probably higher today than it was «, ' K - w ° ul <^i°Uow, you might expect, that the majority of ? . the 'members "df the House and Senate would be chosen by city electors. fr 4. i -* i •*• n °u the case> City Predominance has not yet reflected itself in the national government. * * * TO THE ^Republicans meeting at St. Louis to devise future 1 plans for the party, comes the magazine Country Gentle- man^rth figures tending to prove that 61.6 per cent of members ot the House and 75 per cent of the members of the benate comes from rural districts; that is, from farms or from towns of fewer than 10,000 people. How. doesi this happen? Considering an "urban" state t in n™ ™ Which more than half of the P eo Ple live in places ot 10,000 or more population, thereare only 12 such "urban" f f , Takln 8' 1 a ^:"rural" those states in which more than half ot the. people live in places of .less than 10,000 people, therp are. yb such states. Now, since each- state has two senators regardless of population, this goves a big Senate majority of about three to one to the "rural" states • ^Taking.as "i-ural" those states in which more than half o, Q e r PeGp u l W . e in P Iaces of les s than 10,000 people, there are 36 such-states. Now, since each state has two senators regardless of population,, this jrivts a big Senate majority of about three to one to the "rural" states. Rouse representation is- according to population rather states and you would think the division would be more tv.vta M K 6 mafi:a f ne , found that 268 congressional districts would be properly classified as "rural," and only 167 as .'. * * * THUS we have this situation: a majority of the people of , . - tn ? c °umTy are urban, but a majority of their representatives m Congress are "rural." ... This balance is in constant process of readjustment, but big changes must wait for the constitutional reapportionment ot .congressional districts so long neglected by Congress and revived recently by Senator Vandenberg.

Beginning the story of the greatest of these, Walter Hiwinghursl has produced u most stirring book in his "Upper Mississippi" (Farrnr nml Rinehartl, $2.50. Second of the 24 volumes to be issued under the general title of "Rivers of (Vmericn," Mr. Haviyhurst's book is concerned with the land settlement and economic development that swept across Wisconsin, Minnesota t the Dako- tiis and even Manitoba and Saskatchewan from the 1830s to the 1880s, You would expect n lusty yarn, and the author has given you just that. The .story revolves around one Cleng K-u-M.n, tall, raw-boned fearless lender of the first Scandinavian migration to the middle west. Cleng found challenge from the very start in the vast I uncut timberland.s, the broad prairie, the roaring rivers. So the ax fell and a million rafts flouted down the Mississippi and oxen plows bit deep into root-matter virgin .soil. Strung children were born on the puncheon floors of the wilderness homes. There were drouths and bli/.- •/ards, both black and white, and the soouriige of grasshoppers and the prairie fire.

After that i—well, I preferred to have you tell me, and go into a con-j yourself. You see, Judge Baldwin had written me of your marriage from the hospital be-fore he died." But I hadn't any proof—nothing but my own word, I—-" "And I suppose it never occurred to you," snapped old Miranda, "that if I hadn't been \vill- These patients have been treated by | fl'dl the bath method, by the production of i fever, by psychic methods and by oc-1 : " " cu/jcitioftcil methods. | Recently, experimentation has begun ' with new foiinr; of treatment, including , in spite of having been brought up like a china mantel-piece, you had backbone enough to go out and carve yourself a slice of the world?" When Linda would have spoken, the old lady cut her off with an imperious gesture. "For if," she pursued, "you had known anything about me, you would have understood that the one thing I cannot stomach is n helpless namby-pamby. . . , And even if I hadn't had to take my hat off to you for the way you faced down that pack of curiosity seekers the other day, I should never have thought of questioning my grandson's choice." Linda smiled a little dubious smile and- knew that she would never be afraid of Miranda Trent again. • * * QNCE back in the old house, It seemed to Linda as if she had never been away—except that that ba':e. dn"ed-"p Cbristrr.?.s trfw; no longer shed needles in the tront parlor. The days settled naturally into the old routine—only with a difference. Old Miranda began to consult Linda more and more about the details of their daily life. * "For after all, my dear Linda," the old lady said, "in due time this house will be yours. You must learn to administer it as a Trent should." With the sturdy common sense that was so inescapably a part of her, Miranda Trent knew that come famine, flood, or earthquake, life must go on after a fashion. It was perhaps the greatest kindness she could have done Linda to keep her busy. Not that life with old Miranda was a bed of roses—or ever could be. But Linda was learning to be amused rather than hurt when the old lady's weakness for the telling phrase got the better of her kindness, and her caustic tongue ran awuy with her.
