This growth has made possible a finer community with many additional civic serv- ices and greater advantages for every homeowner and his family. Look at These Figures on Population Growth: 1940 Federal Census 19,4O3 1950 Federal Census 41,OOO 1953 (Estimate by City Clerk). 54,OOO , The growth of our city is 278% . . .
