the membership of the house'ls In
creased from 435 to at least S00 to
meet the Increased population shown
by the 1920 census, 10 states will
lose one or more representatives, ac
cording to Representative 8legel, of
New York, chairman of the census
committee which will frame the new
apportionment bill. Those states
are: , ,
Indiana, Iowa and Missouri, which
will lose two congressmen each; and
Illinois. Kentucky, Maine, MaTyland.
Nebraska, Vermont and Virginia,
which will lose one congressman
Mr. Sleil explains that If thn
house. membership Is retained at Its
present figure. It will be necessary to
Increase the population basis la each
congressional district beyond the
2114000 or major portion thereof
now fixed. It this Is done, he say,
the 10 state, named will lose one or
more ot the present districts because
their populations have not Increased
In proportion to those ot other atatea.
On the basts of the estimated
population of 106,00,000 for tho

of approximately 14,000,000 In 10
years, Mr. Slegel says (S or CS new

In accord with the new population to
begin with the reconvening of con

that the measure will be passed

Every decade since 1790, wltk thn

Individual desks have been discarded
