Cities of 100,000 or More
Present Scenes of Worst
More than one-tenth of the est!
mated total population of the Unitet
States lives along the Atlantic sea
board In cities of 100,000 or mor<
population, according to figures mad*
public today by the census bureau
This percentage is expected to be bettered
when final announcement of the
population of -the several states or
the eastern coast is made.
Nearly 12.000,000 persons reside in
cities in the 100,000 or more class or
this coast, or, properly speaking, east
of the Allegheny and Blue Ridge
mountains. In New York city alone
nearly half of this number reside;
5,621,151 persons living in the metropolis,
while Philadelphia accounts for
1,823,158 more.
That the largest cities of the country
lie in this comparatively small
strip is proved by figures for the
sixty-eight cities having 100,000 or
more inhabitants. In twenty-four of
these there live 11,956.581 persons,
more than one-half of the combined
total for the sixty-'eight cities of
The census bureau has estimated that
more than 105,000.000 persons live in the
United States. With nearly 12,000.000,000
persons living east of the Alleghenies.
it is conclusively shown that
the eastern section of the country is by
far the most congested when the vast
territory west of the mountains is compared
with the relatively small area in
which these 12,000,000 persons live. In
the decade since 1910 there has .been an
increase of more than 4.000,000 persons
in the sixty-eight cities, figures for lOtri
showing that 18,206,735 persons resided
in these cities a decade ago. .,

Suggestions for Appropriation Bill
Made to District Commissioners.
A committee representing the Northeast
Washington Citizens' Association
I called at the District building today
i and lajd before the Commissioners the
ftfftowing requests which they want included
in the estimates to' Congress for
the next appropriation bill:
"Appropriation for the purchase of
the Patterson tract for a public park,
provided there shall be no assessment
for benefits on owners of adjacent property.
"An appropriation sufficient to construct
an addition to the Wheatlo*
School, increasing- it to twice its present
size and to include an assembly hall.
An appropriation for a site and
toward the construction of a building
containing an assembly hall to accommodate
the pupils and teachers of thf
seventh division.
"An appropriation for the purchast
of vacant ground adjacent to the Pea
body and Ludlow schools for play
ground purposes.
"An appropriation to complete the
grading of New York avenue and I
street from Florida avenue to Bladensburg
"An appropriation for the improvement
of West Virginia .avenue from
Florida avenue to New York avenue.
"An appropriation for the installation
of modern electric street lamps on H
street northeast to loth street.
"That the annual appropriation for
the reclamation of the Anacostia flats
be materially increased so as to insure
the completion of the project at an
early date, in order that the lakes provided
can be used for bathing beaches."
Mrs. Axtell, Mrs. Adams and Mrs.
Gardiner Are Gnests.
That conditions within the average
American home are so indicative of
national conditions and problems that
women are forced to deal with the
latter -as well as the former, was the
substance of a talk given by Mrs.
Frances Axtell. one of three women
recently appointed to important government
positions who spoke at the
Washington Arts Club last night. Mrs.
Axtell is a member of the United
States employes' compensation committee.
The other two were Mrs. Annette
Adams, assistant attorney general.
and Mrs. Helen H. Gardintr, civil
service commissioner.
The point was reached where women
had to have the vote. Mrs. Axtell
pointed out. because of the scarcity of
foodstuffs and clothingi general high
prices, famines,- strikes and other
economic and political conditions.
Mrs. Adams voiced a vigorous protest
against a separate feminine party
in national politics, together with the
advice that women affiliate themselves
with existing organizations,
while Mrs. Gardiner spoke of the responsibility
of . the great army of
civil service employes toward the nation,
and said they should be as carefully
chosen as the officers of the
Army and Navy. She declared that the
civil service system of appointment
and advancement today is based entirely
upon efficiency, and that politics
"is playing a decreasing part in
the conduct of the business of the
nation's government.
