WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 1949 Monthly Surveys Made on Jobless Census Bureau Soys Information on Work Of Prime Interest WASHINGTON (AP) — The big 1950 census doesn't start until next April, but don't be surprised if a census man calls at your home this su turner. .Every month Census Bureau dAbtierntors visit about 25,000 "seholds In the United States. They ask questions about the age, martial status and employment of members of households. The employment census on which (he Bureau bases its estimate of I he number of job-holders and Job- hunters, is now rated more Important than the count of population. Etnploymenf information Is valuable to the government and private industry as an indicator of business conditions. Some householders resent the questioning ns "prying Into private affairs". A few others are scared by It in these days of agitation over Communists and charges of disloyalty. Census Bureau officials say people have nothing to fear from the interviews. The information is strictly confidential as far as the individual householder or his family is concerned. Names of Individuals are not senl io Washington headquarters. The information received here is uscc only for compiling the number ol employed and unemployed anc other statistics. Not even the FBI or Interim Revenue collectors can obtain census information for investigation or tax collecting purposes. Federal Law prohibits its use except in statis tics. Some people refuse to cooperat with the Census Bureau's enumer- or interviewers. However, re. ly few persist in refusing aft the interviewers have shown Identification cards with their pho tographs and have explained why the Information is being collected. Special care is taken to put the questions in simple words and in terms which are well known in tli community where the interviews person lives. The Interviewers take short training courses (or thei monthly one-week's work. The monthly census Is taken in 88 sample areas of the country. For BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEW!

Cole was so proud of catching a 28-inch brown trout with his bare hands that he mounted the catch and hung it in I a local tavern. A postcard-maker took pictures and sold photos of the fine catch.

Idea Far From Btlnj Ntw It really wasn't a new idea. They say that Alexander Hie Great, who whipped the world and died trying to surround a wine jug. padded his sandals. They also say that Napoleon, a small fry with bis fry ideas, fixed his boots so that there was considerable leather between his feet and the necks he sometimes walked on. And—sh-h-h-h;— Hitler hiked up his heels, too. "But of course we don't like to mention Hitler wore height-increasing shoes." said Stone. "We'd rather mention George Raft. Frank Sinatra. Bing Crosby, Al Jolson. Billy Rose. Humphrey Bogarl. Rudy Vallee and Dick Powell." Stone savs he has put his "elevators" on these gentlemen, and some 1,000.000 others in the last decade.
