Cify Negroes Build Power 1 Politically By JOHN BECKLER Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The concentration of Negroes In large Northern cities is beginning to produce its own kind of Black Power- black political power. This year Negroes won control of city governments in Cleveland, Ohio, and Gary, Ind. In November they're expected to gain at least three more seats in ths U.S. House of Representatives. That would Increase the number of Negro congressmen to nine, the highest yet; higher even than the seven who served at the peak of Negro participation in Reconstruction-era government. For years congressional dis trict lines Ifenrost . were drawn tcFdivide community among several predominantly white districts. But the steady flocking of Negroes to urban areas has made such draftsmanship Increasingly difficult. The three new districts expected to elect Negroes this fall are in New York City, Cleveland and St. Louis. Rather than run in the new districts two of the white incumbents have moved over to tackle incumbents in adjoining districts and the third one has announced his retirement. Although having 9 members in a 435-member House would leave Negroes far short of their proportionate weight of about 11 per cent of the total population, their strength in Congress has increased steadily, if slowly, since World War n. Until 1945 only Chicago had elected a Negro congressman in the 20th century, its South Side Negro community having had its own representatives since 1930. In 1945 Adam Clayton Powell of New York made his flamboyr ant entrance on the national scene; in 1954 Detroit elected its first Negro member; In 1958, Philadelphia; in 1962, Los Angeles—and In 1964 Detroit became the first city with two Negro representatives. In 1966 the first Negro senator , Reconstruction was elect?1 'Edward W. Brooke of Massachusetts. Some Negro leaders expect to pick up more than three seats in November, with Los Angeles and Chicago offering the best prospects. If it doesn't happen this year, it seems certain the number will grow after the 1970 Weather Seems to Be Settling By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The weather in Arkansas appears to be settling down to fair skies and mild to warm temperatures.

The p o p u 1 ai i p n increase among Negroes since 1950 has been almost all in central cities of metropolitan areas. Negroes are 26 per cent of the population in cities or metropolitan areas with more than 1 million population. And the larger the city the faster the Negro population Is growing.
