' Portland's school census, taken , In

the ages of 4 and 20 years. The increase

ter was brought to his attention, made
the loiiowing statement: -we nave ai
ways had trouble with the. school cen
bus. and while I have not aeen a report
as to how the matters stand on the
school records, I will,, hazard a guess
that the censua-takera never visited the
more remote portions of the annexed
districts of the city, and probably copied
tha names from tha old census books.
"Such an Increase aa the achool
clerk's records show Is ridiculous when
the very evident Increase ' In popula
tion Is considered. ' Then you' must also
count the hundreds of children who
have turned Into' their fourth year and
are entitled under the state law to draw
achool money. Somethlng is radically
wrong and the census must be retaken,
for Portland can't afford to lose 820,000
to 850,000. n -, ." '"" ' - ' - '

takers and the matter of getting the

In his hands. I don't know what

the increase in census shows a gain of
approximately 160 per cent, when the
