Settlements often perform oilier baffling feats. located In the jungle iilon^ waterway. Travel difficulties are not the only problems that beset census takers. In Hawaii, for example, there is a language problem.. Tlic 1930 census showed that the island's population consisted chiefly of siieii diverse groups as Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Koreans. Puerto Ulcans, Filipinos, Negroes. Hawaiians, Caucaslan-Hawaiians, Asiatic-Hawaiians and Spanish. A tolal of 154 Interpreters had lo ba used along with the regular force of 200 enumerators to make Ihe 1930 count. In addition to this problem, census takers were commuted with the task ol convincing many of the islanders lhat, they were not representatives of the immigration bureau in Washington. Tlie governor issued a proclamation printed in Chinese, Japanese and three Filipino dialecls urging residents lo cooperate with the enumerators. Planes Used in Hawaii To reach thc various islands thai belong to the Hawaiian groups, census officials must travel by boat and airplane. Puerto Rico, one of the most densely populated areas in the world, offers no problem iis far as distances are concerned. Within its) x 3.435 miles are more than 1,500,-1 [ 000 persons. Tlie average number of ; inhabitants per square mile in 1930 | exceeded 449. The 1930 count showed that about 1,147.000 white persons and nearly 400,000 negroes lived in Ihe island. There were only 38 persons of other races living there. George C. Junior, Washington, a veteran census field man is scheduled to manage Puerto Rico's csn- sus. He is considered well-versed in Latin American affairs. Other outlying areas where the census will be taken are the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa.
