Odessa Population Booms Upward; Oil Causes Hike By The Associated Press , (Editor's note: This is one of a, series of stories based on a recent associated press survey . of growth of Texas population which indicated Texas cities have grown 48 per cent since the last official 1940 census. A short series of stories will reveal how individual towns and cities have grown and what has happened to them as a result. The estimates of the growth were based on city directories, chamber of commerce surveys, utility outlets, etc, The amassing growth of West Texos IK exemplified by booming Odessa, which, in seven short years, has grown 260 per cent. imated 35,000--a jump of 25,427. The mayor cause--oil. M. J. Beiiefield, chamber of commerce manager, said: "We're figuring on an increase of slightly more than 3,000 a year, which should give Odessa a population of 45,000 by 1950." The estimate of today's 35,000 was based on last year's city directory, which listed 32,700, plus an estimated growth of about 3,000 d u r i n g 1946 and up to date in 1947.

Maybe you've wondered about hat. So have a lot of other peo- . To find the vriter went to the answer this two sources A ROMANTIC PAN1CI Today Only Adults 10c Children 9c nost concerned with air safety: 1. The Civil Aeronautics Admin- stration--the government agency 'hich lays clown the safety re- uirement for the commercial pas- enger airlines, 2, The Air Transport Associa- ion of America--an organization mde up of regular commercial assenger airlines, Both gave the same answer: parachutes are not practical on commercial passenger planes. The CAA does not recommend them on passenger planes. Why?. Most crashes happen too fast for passengers to escape by parachute. The passengers could do one of two things: 1, They could don the ,'chutes befor;,- the plane took off. 2, They could don them when the plane, aloft, got into trouble. But "still the answer is: most crashes happen too fast for them to escape. Then there's be the psychological problem of getting people to jump. That, too, would take time. Hesitant ones would block the others. A parachute might be useful in a case like this: when a passenger plane runs out of gas or is lost and has time to circle. But, according to CAA, such a situation doesn't arise more often than perhaps "once in 10,000,000 or 20,000,000 times." ly $2,000,000 and business, industrial and residential structures are blossoming like mushrooms. Housing is so hard to find, and is so expensive, that white collar workers of moderate salaries find it almost impossible to obtain a place to live. A $200,000 bond 1s- i sue was 'voted to construct housing for teachers, so the town could obtain an adequate teaching staff. Hotel and office space is badly needed. To offset the housing needs, new apartments and hundreds of low cost homes are being rushed to completion. The chased emergency city has pur- trailer units from the Abilene Trmy Camp to house veterans. A rough estimate* on the town's a n n u a l income, made by the advertising department of the.
