First Complete Census Of American
Republic Being Planned For 1950
By JANE EADS
WASHINGTON Uncle Sam
has been counting every man,
woman and child In the nation
every 10 years since 1790 and
has a pretty accurate idea about
the number and characteristics
of the people who Inhabit this
country. But many other Ameri
can republics know Utile about
themselves. No one knows how
many people live In Kcuador or
Haiti, for Instance. They have
never managed to take a nation
'This lack of a recent census
In many countries," George C.
Compton points out In Pan Am
erican union's "Americas" mag
azine, "not only produces a blind
spot In the vision of educators
and experts on social security,
housing, health services, or food
production, it also makes the
next census more dimcun. f irst,
because the lack of practical census-taking

even hostility toward the curious
Plans are well along, however,
for the first complete census of
the Americas In 1950. Already
the ground work has been laid In
most countries through a vast
educational program, the train
ing of statisticians in the art of
census-taking by the U.S. Census
bureau and the drafting of some
1. 500.000 enumerators In Central
and South American countries.
It Is expected that during the
period allowed for the census nf
the Americas probably all the
countries win noia a population
census and most will make a
separate survey of agriculture,
they plan special housing Inquir
ies. A few will tally Industry,
business or transportation.
Directing the vast enterprise
is a committees headed by Dr.
Calvert L. Dedrlck of the U.S.
Census Bureau, set up by the
Inter-American Statistical Insti
tute here. Working for census
uniformity, this committee ts

SYDNEY, Australia, Aug. 11.
UP) The end of Australia sev:n-week-old
mid winter coal strlkr
appeared to be near today.
Miners voted two to to re
ject a recommendation of their
leaders to continue the strike
while efforts were being mais to
reopen negotiations with the fed

ernments. The government has
said they would not negotiate.
Mine leaders appeared to ..jve
no alternative but to call off the

basic standards for tabulating
the population as well as for oth
er tabulation questions and prob
lems. By spring about 200 officials
from statistical bureaus In other
countries will have taken special
courses In census methods In this
country. There Is still much to
be done, however. Mr. Comp
ton reports that maps are badly
needed In Ecuador, Haiti, Para
guay and other countries. Ecua
dor lacks equipment for the aeri
al survey necessary for some
parts. There are still many un
explored places in Bolivia. Per
sonnel and money are other big
headaches. In many countri'-s
government workers and teach
ers have been called upon to take
the census without extra pay or

WASHINGTON In 1944 when
Henrietta and Nelson Poynter set
up a news agency here they were
amazed at the difficulty they had
getting information on the doings
of Congress. Only a trained re
searcher with plenty of time,
they found, could distill the rec
ord of a single major action In
Congress, or the record of a sin
gle congressman, from the mil
lions of words that pour from
government presses into the Con
The Poynters concluded that
here was an opportunity for them
to do real service. Devoting their
efforts to purely Congressional
coverage, they began publishing
the Congressional Quarterly in
1945. It Is now used by more than
100 newspapers, hundreds of li
braries, schools, and organiza
tions, Including the Democratic
and Republican national commit
tee. Simply chronicling the daily
facts of Congressional life and
devoid of interpretations, it Is de
signed to bridge the gap between
spot news and official records
wilh such features as voting
charts, attendance records, cov
erage of committees, reports on
lobbies and analysis of current
issues. Boning up on the 81st Con
gress from a Congressional Quar
terly In the public library, I
learned among other things:
The average age of members
is 56. Rep. Douchton (D-N.C),
84, is the oldest, and Rep. Bent-
sen (D-Tex.), 27, la the youngest

Reed, in the House are ranking
Republicans in period of service.
Ranking Democrats are Kenneth
McKellar, Tennessee, in the Sen

I nois, In the House. Sabath, his
service dating from March 4,
1907, has the longest service rec
ord. There are 301 lawyers In both
houses. This is the largest voca
tional category, with business- or
insurance next. There are 26 ex
governors in the Senate, one in
the house. There are 26 former
House members in the Senate
and two ex-senators (Hugh Mit

Wadsworth, New York) In the

ried In 1942 and have a home in
