Sherry, Smallest Dale Triplet, Joins Others at Home
Everything will come in threes at the Richard F. Dale home in Gaithersburg from now on. First of all, there will be three special dresses for a triple chris tening today at Prince Georges Chapel in the Montgomery County town. Sherry Sale Dale has joined her infant brother and sister at home. She was the last of the triplets born May 13 to leave Children’s Hospital, because she was the smallest at birth. They were born prematurely in Montgomery County General Hospital, Sandy Spring, but were transferred to Children’s because the county institution didn’t have enough incubators. John, who weighed three pounds at birth, went home first on May 21. He now hits the scale at nine pounds. Margaret Jane, who weighed In at four pounds, followed on June 30. She now weighs seven pounds. Sherry — the lightweight, twc pounds—left the hospital yester day after adding five pounds. Sherry enjoyed the going away ceremonies at the hospital. She even smiled up at her mother when the photographers’ flash bulbs went off. “We Just couldn’t help spoiling her a little, but she’ll be all right,” said Mrs. Helen McDonald, head nurse. Boys had been leading 3 to 1 in the Dale family, but the trip lets have brought the score to four boys and three girls. The other children are Charles, 14; Ben, 13; Tom, 11, and Flor ence, 10. The family will gather with the children’s godparents, Mr. and Mrs. James T. Watters, Silver Spring, for a party after the christening. Mr. and Mrs. Dale have one word for the triplets—“wonder ful.” Contempt Move Begun Against Mrs. Berman Contempt proceedings have been started by the House Committee on Un-American Activities against Mrs. Louis Bransten Berman, West Coast heiress, for her refusal to answer most of the questions put to her on Capitol Hill last No vember. Mrs. Berman thus became the 69th person named by the com mittee in contempt of Congress actions. Prank Panzio, an official of the United Electrical Workers union was included in the list voted on during a closed session of the • committee last Thursday and made public yesterday. Pull House approval is required before the cases can be referred to the Justice Department for prosecution. Committee members expect to start bringing up the cases individually as soon as pos sible. Pilot Club Members Open Convention Today The Pilot Club International will bring 800 members here today for its convention at the Hotel Statler. Highlights of the week-long program will be a luncheon ad dress at 12:45 p.m. Thursday by Mrs. Georgia Neese Clark, treas urer of the United States, and a Saturday banquet address by Har rison Forman, writer, lecturer and explorer. He will speak on“ Korea —Fuse to United Action.” On Wednesday, the 16th Divi sion of the international, made up of the District chapter, Baltimore, Delaware, New Jersey and New York, will present a reception and minstrel show. Denmark’s trade with France shows wide improvement as the result of a new agreement. i— .— The Dale triplets of Gaithersburg—Sherry, John and Margaret—pose in the usual order with their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard F. Dale. —Star Staff Photo. :•. Census (Continued From First Page.) December 1—date on which the Secretary of Commerce must send the figures to President Truman. The official count will be released when the President sends it to Congress. New York clung to first place in the State population listing, 1 with 14,743,210. The Empire State picked up about 1,264,000 more residents. But California had the most impressive growth, a gain of 3,565,000 which boomed the total to 10,472,348 and apparently clinched second place. California thus moved from fifth place past Pennsylvania with 10.435,965, Illinois with 8,696,490 and Ohio with 7.901,791. Virginia Ranks 16th. Virginia, with a gain of 570,048 bringing its new total to 3,247,781, stood in 16th place among the States and Maryland, up 501,413 to a total of 2,322,657, ranked 25th. Texas, largest State geographi cally, remained sixth in popula tion with 7,677,060. Nevada was last with 158.378. California’s rise was also big gest percentage-wise, its 51.6 per cent topping the 48.7 increase of Arizona, 44.1 per cent gain of Florida, 43.7 per cent climb of Nevada, 38.6 per cent of Oregon and 36 per cent of Washington. Five States Slip. Five States were on the down grade. Arkansas, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Dakota and Okla homa all slipped numerically. The combined population gain of California, Oregon and Wash ington amounted to about 4.6 mil lion, representing approximately one-fourth of the Nation’s entire increase in an area with less than 10 per cent of the country’s total population. The Nation’s growth was at tributed chiefly to an increased birth rate rising from a great number of wartime marriages, and a decline in the death rate. Immigration played little part in the whole picture. Poles and Israelis Plan New Trade Agreement By the Associated Press JERUSALEM.—Poland and Is rael are expected to sign a new trade pact before next Decem ber 1. Both countries recently extended an existing agreement to that date. Israel now is getting imports of cement, wood, iron and other industrial and building materials from Poland. The Israels are ex porting citrus fruits, dental sup plies and special chemicals to the Poles. t I Cenus Totals by States By th« Auociatad Pres* Following are the preliminary State population totals announced by the Census Bureau yesterday.

Nation's 100 Largest Cities ty the Aisociated Preii A nip-and-tuck. battle for posi tion among the 100 biggest cities is shown by preliminary popula tion figures reported to the Census Bureau yesterday. Omaha, Neb., for example, held a 135 lead over Miami, FJa., for 41st place, and Berkley, Calif., has a margin of 34 for 90th place over Fall River, Mass. One factor that would be im portant: The number of persons claiming Omaha and Nebraska as residence who were counted in the special one-day count of transients last April, and who were not duplicated in the count at their homes. The bureau has a big task ahead yet in checking the approximately 1.5 million persons registered in the transient count.

ADans 9211-9212 | Bridges Prosecutor Studies Bail in Case ly tha Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO, July 22.— The man who successfully prose cuted Harry Bridges for perjury came back to San Francisco to day to consider a move which might send the CIO longshore men's boss to jail. “After I have discovered wheth er the facts call for revocation of Bridges’ bail, I will make a rec ommendation to the Attorney deneral,” said F. Joseph Donohue, on arrival from Washington, D. C. “If the recommendation is that the bail be revoked and it is ap proved by the Attorney General, I will make such a motion to Judge (George B.) Harris.’’ It was Judge Harris who sen tenced Bridges to five years im prisonment after he was con victed of falsely swearing at liis 1945 naturalization hearing that he never had been a Communist. The question of revoking bail was raised by the Senate Judiciary Committee in Washington a week ago. That was after Bridges’ San Francisco local of the Interna tional Longshoremen’s and Ware housemen’s union held a stormy session over the local’s attitude toward United States Korean policy. Meade Scholarships Go To 12 College Students By the Associated Press RICHMOND, July 22.—Twelve winners of Granville P. Meade scholarships for college students born in Virginia have been an nounced by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Dowell J. Howard. The first winners, 11 of them college freshmen and one a sen ior, include: Julian Ward Jones, jr., Fredericksburg; James Mor ton Douglas, Catlett; Frederick Ross Coates, Etlan; and William Alfred Cas, Staunton. Some Factual Odds and Ends on 1950 Census The Census Bureau last night released this “factual odds and ends” on the 1950 population count. Four-fifths of the Nation’s popu lation lives in the 28 States bor dering on the Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific coastlines and on the Great Lakes. More than one-third of the total United States population lives in eight States bordering the Great Lakes. The combined population of these States is 58,414,114. More than 10 per cent of the Nation’s population is concen tarted within the city limits of the country’s five cities of over a mil lion population—New York, Chi cago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Detroit. About one person in six lives in cities of over 500,000 population. The combined population of the 106 cities of over 100,000 popula tion in 1950 was about 44 million or nearly three-tenths of the Na tion’s total. Despite its population growth to 792,234 in 1950, Washington ranks behind several American capital cities in size, such cities including Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, and Santi ago. The combined population of the 17 States listed in the first United States Census in 1790 was 3,929, 214. Their combined population in 1950 was 60.966,923. The present area of some of these States is much smaller than 160 years ago, new States having been created from portions of their early terri torial extent. California’s growth between 1940 and 1950 equalled about one fifth of the gain for the entire country. A century ago, the State’s total in the 1850 census was 92, 597, a large part of which popula tion was then newly arrived be cause of the great gold rush. The first United States census in 1790 listed Virginia as the most populous with 747,610 inhabitants. In 1950. Virginia ranked 16th with a population of 3,247,781. New York ranked fourth among the States in 1790 with 340,120 inhab itants but attained first rank in 1820 and has held the No. 1 posi tion for 130 years. Missouri’s 3,924,220 population total in 1950 is almost identical with that of the entire United States, 3,929,214, in 1790. The President’s home State first ap peared in the 1810 census with a count of 19,783. The State with the greatest density of population is Rhode Island with 743 persons per square mile in 1950 compared with 674 In 1940. At the other end of the scale is Nevada with 1.4 persons per square mile in 1950 compared with 1.0 per square mile in 1940. Nearly one-half of the 1950 population of the State of Texas resided in only 13 of the State’s 254 counties. The combined popu lation of these 13 counties, widely scattered over the State, totalled about 3.6 million. Manhattan Island with an area of 22 square miles and a popula tion of 1,938,551 has a 1950 popu lation density of 88,116 persons per square mile and probably is the most densely populated area of like size in the world. Long Island with an area of 1.401 square miles and a popula tion of 5,204,659 has a popula tion density of 3,715 persons per square mile. The island’s popu lation is greater than that of any State except New York, Pennsyl vania, California, Illinois, Ohio, Texas and Michigan. Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota, the Nation’s northern most county, has a 1950 popula tion of 4,897 compared with a 1940 total of 5,975. The country’s southernmost county, Monroe in Florida, has a 1950 population of 25,159 compared with a 1940 pop ulation of 14,078. Armstrong County, South Dakota, despite a 24 per cent population increase, kept its place at the foot of the county rankings with 52 inhab itants in 1950 compared with 42 inhabitants in 1940. Three Cowsr 2 Calves Die In Fire Near Dickerson Three cows and two calves were burned to death yesterday in a $16,000 fire on the Earle Shreve farm near Dickerson, Md. An employe managed to lead 27 other cows to safety from the burning barn. The Upper Montgomery Volun teer Fire Department estimated damage to the barn and attached shed at $10,000. Also destroyed were 175 tons of hay, valued at more than $5,200, and 150 bushels to seed wheat worth about $500. Firemen said the blare appar ently resulted from spontaneous combustion of hay. Firemen said there was a delay in calling them because the Shreve telephone was out of order. When they arrived, they said the roof of the barn was collapsing. The Hyattstown Fire Department also responded. [ ELI^^^calor^ yr GAS RANGE I T From Kitchen Equipment ■ ■ See Our Complete ■ ■ Selection Today!
