Great Plains Population Unaffected by Migration (Vnlted Preit Letued Wire) WASHINGTON. Sept. J3.—Plagues j lion of the area was Increased by " of grasshoppers, dust storms and droughts have caused much intra- area migration of hardy farmers in the great plains but tho population of the ten states baa remained virtually stationary, Cr. Conrad Taeu- ber, ot tho department ot agriculture, declares. , While data he collected did not include the effects of the present drought. Doctor Taeuber branded aa Incorrect tho "popular impression" that there has been a considerable depopulation In recent years In tho great plains. Tho farm population of the states decreased from an estimated. 6,117,000 on January 1, 1930, to 6,112,000 five years later — a period which covers tho droughts of 1930 and 1934. .

Panhandle Shows Decrease In tho five years from 1930 1936, decreases in farm population were notable in tho Oklahoma Panhandle. £he cotton-growing urea of southwestern Oklahoma and the ad' joining eastern margin of the groat plains of Texas, but the change was slight in the wheat-growing portion of the Toxas Panhandle. Farm population decrea*«d markedly In western DakotaH. northwestern North Dakota, northeastern Montana, and in tho Irrigated Arkansas and South Platto valleys of Colorado. Decreases about balanced increases in western Kansas and Nebraska and the plaiho of western Colorado. A deckled Increase occurred In the Rio Grand valleys and the mountainous portion of Now Mexico. "As to the migration from farms in the plains region, it la evident that this amounted to a rather heavy movement, for in nioro than two- thirds of tho countries, there was some decline in tho form population, despite the largo influx of 360,000 nowcomors and the rather large natural increase," Dr. Taeuber sa|d. "The excess of births over deaths from 1930-85 is estimated at 614,800 persona In tho region. "To sum up, it appears that in the ten states during the five years, at loast 875,000 persons left farms and had not returned by Jan. 1, 103$. More than half tho migration away from farms occurred in Texas and Oklahoma." Low Death Rato Prevails Increases in the farm population between 1930 and 1885 are due a); most entirety to the high birth rates j and low death rates prevailing in the i area. Only Texas and New Mexico report areas of any else in which the farm population had lncreaned btoauso of persons moving in. fINT tu.
