William C. Walsh of Cumberland* former Attorney General. arprir^H before the council to explain th* latest proposal for solv- isc the old and never-settled Question of how political units shall be represented in the General Assembly. W-*ib!v "sriio headed a commission named by Governor Lant: last year, admitted the solution v.asu't easy. He rxjed the coupcil however. whether it approved t'a.» commission's plan or not. to work out some system whereby Baltimore City and the three biggest coun- itie*--BanSsore, Priac* George'* {and Moni^omery--will fet a b*t- Iter break. j "There is no question," he said. j "that our present system of rep. resentaticn in the General A*»em- jbly is inequitable. Unless tb* i constitution is chanted in ome j way. it will become more inequita- Sble." I Eight Dae Increase* i He listed eight counties, which ! after the 1950 census will be en{titled to a total of seven to nine ] aditiorial members of the House I ]o£ Delegates.

The population limit is Baltimore counties be allowed ·ev- en delegates each. Any other county whose population after 1990 exceeded 100,000 also would be entitled_to even delegates. Th* committee submitted its plan for a conttitutional amendment during the last weeks of the 1947 session of the Legislature but it failed of action- Lane asked that the question be taken up for possible action in 1948. As the constitution now stands.! all counties hav* two delegates j approving new representation on i a strictly population basis. ' The counties which he said will j get new deiegstes-after 1950 unless] the constitution is cbangc-d are i Caroline. Carroll. Cecil. Charles, i i Harford, St. Mary's and Wicomico. i j In the case of,Caroline, he ssid. : only an increase of 452 over thej 1940 census will be enough. 55.000.
