Winkler, lli South Roxana Church. : Holly Hills, was sold to Mr. and taken about seven years ago. Vanpreter said a liquor license census was also taken about seven years ago, and 7,500 people were counted. According to Van- preter. this census was not completed because only a count of 7,000 people was needed for the liquor license census. The 1950 census of East Alton showed a population total of 7,320. This could have indicated another population drop because of a loss of World War H workers from the area. Vanpreter mentioned some removal of government housing at the time. The apparent recent population drop may have resulted from the tapering off of the industrial boon during the past seven years which caused workers to migrate from the area, and also recent population movement to the suburbs, reported the mayor. Other population reduction could have been caused by the removal of heavily populated low-priced housing for municipal building construction • such as the new fire house and the planned city hall, said Vanpreter. Other vacated areas mentioned by the mayor were two hotels on Shamrock St. and part of the Alt-Wood Area. The mayor also said that most of the newly constructed houses are spread out and limited in occupancy.
