n the last ten years of all other class
t'noiicial estimates of the increase
i tlt number of Japanese in the 'ni
ed States, particularly on the Pacific
oast, were borne out in the official
ahulation which revealed a rate of
axpmzion or 33.1 per cent during the
lecade of 1910-20. California absorber
(,-90 of the total growth of 8,Sti
