Census Shows Big Gains in
Number of Farms.
FEW COUNTIES SLIP BACK
lane Loads In Oregon and Yakima

Ccnsu; Periods Given.
OREGON IAN NE"WS BUREAU.
Washington. Oct. 7. Figures on the
agricultural growth of Oregon,
Washington and Idaho announced by
the census bureau today show that
the gains' in the number of farms are
quite uniformly distributed through
out all sections of the three states.
Here and there a county has .slipped
back from the showing made in the
jjiu enumeration. 11 appears, uu
face of the returns, but tne census
bureau explains that in several cases
in the three states the figures . are
rot strictly comparable becausa of
changes in county boundar'e3.
Idaho Second in Growth.
Tn the case of Idaho, which is sec
ond state in the union in rate of
growth in the last ten years, many
counties show a loss from ten years
ago because they have lost large
areas by the creation of new counties
eince the census of 1910. ,
Lane county leads In Oregon with a
prowth from 2876 farms in 1910 to
3279 in 1920. Yakima county leads
in Washington, growing from 3341
farms in 1910 to 5755 in 1920, and
Twin Falls county is ahead in Idaho,
jumping from 1295 farms in 1910 to
J746 in 1920.

Senator Harding's Stand Calls
Forth Comment From Bour
bon Committee Chief.
NEW YORK, Oct. 7. (Special.)
Qeorge White, chairman of the demo
cratic national committee, in com
menting today on Senator Harding's
rejection of the league of nations and
entire league idea, extended an Invita
tion to republican men and women
who believe In the leaeue to 1oln with
the democratic party in its fight to
preserve "the only plan ever devised
to make wars less, already accepted
oy as nations or the world."
The chairman said, in part:
"Definitely, utterly. Senator Hard
ing has rejected the league of nations
and the, whole idea and aspiration
that give it birth. In words which
cannot be misunderstood or retracted
he has announced that the United
States, If he is elected, shall not join
in a world contract to prevent outlaw
nations and rulers henceforth from
disturbing the peace of the world.
This makes a clear-cut issue. I have
hoped for this from the first. We
shall now have an unmistakable
referendum on this great question.
"In the democratic party alone now
rests the hope of civilization. The
object for which we entered the war
and for which our people tolled and
died can be attained only through the
election of the democratic candidates.
'It must not happen again,' is what
the world said November 11. 1918.
when the armistice was signed. The
only way to prevent that was and is
through the league of nations.
"With his declaration. Senator Hard
ing has brought this nation and this
earth to the threshold of its most
. "The issue has risen above parties
and party lines. With voice and pen
ana , tunas necessary to bring thli
issue fairly home to every voter, I re
spectfully but earnestly call on them
to be true to their great convictions
and to save later generations of
Americans from having to lay down
their lives to undo the wrongs arising
from national or individual ambition."

with 10 years ago, the rural popula
tion can be divided into two classes,
namely. 9,864,196. or 9.3 per cent of
the total population, living In incor
porated places of less than 2500 In
habitants, and 41.002,703. or 38.8 per
cent of the total population, living
In what may be called purely country
districts. At the census of 1910 the
population living in Incorporated
places of less than 2500 inhabitants
formed 8.8 per cent, while the popula
tion living in purely country districts
formed 44.8 per cent of the total pop
ulation. "The increase since 1910 In the pop
ulation as a whole, as before stated,
was 14.9 per cent, but during the
decade there has been an Increase in
that portion of the population living
in urban territory of 12.192.826, or
28. 6 per cent and in that portion liv
ing in rural territory of 1.518,016, or
only 3.1 per cent,"
Small Towns Ccinu Gains.
If the comparison Is extended to
cover the two classes of rural terri
tory, it appears that that portion liv
ing in incorporated places of less than
2500 inhabitants shows an increase of
1.745,371, or 21.5 per cent, whereas
that portion livint in purely country
districts shows an actual decrease of
227,365, or 6-10 of 1 per cent.
"The percentages of increase shown
for the several states vary greatly,
due in part to the causes which have
been noted as affecting the increase
in the population of the country as
a whole, but also in part to the ab
normal internal movement of popula
tion required to meet the excessive
demands of the war work in certain
sections. For three states Mississippi.
Nevada and Vermont there have
been small decreases in population,
the largest decrease being for Ne
vada, of 5.5 per oerit."

It is customary to make all dreadful appeals
to the imagination of the common peepul - in
terms of aggregate millions.
Advertising campaigns that sound wondrous
and prodigal in total, shrink to an apparent, piti
ful inadequacy in terms of two bits per capita
per year, and yet no such huge fund for adver
tising has ever existed.
A few cents per capita per year would make
an advertising appropriation for any manufac
turer so large as to almost warrant its being
"viewed with alarm."
