State St, Room 39 ■tv_ BLACK BELT OF " THE SOUTH FAST PASSING AWAY Counties Where Race Outnumbered Whites Greatly Reduced ATLANTA. Ga., June 28— (Special): The historic Southern "Black Belts” arc disintegrating and are destined to pass in a few more generations, ac cording to census studies made by Dr. T. J. \Volfter, a sociologist of this city. In 1880 there were 300 counties in the South in which Negro pop ulation outnumbered the white. By 1910 the number had shrunk to 264, and in 1920 there were only 216. In 1910 fifty-four counties showed a Ne gro population of more than three to one. In 1920 only thirty-two counties had so high a proportion. Migration to the North and to the cities and a decreasing birth rate have caused the change. During the last decade the cities gained three quarters of a million in Negro population and l the rural districts lost a quarter of a I million. The increase in the whole | country w'as only 600,000, or 6J4 per j cent, as against eleven, fourteen, sev l enteen, and twenty-two per cent re spectively in the four decades preced ing. Meantime the infant death rate among the race continues to be heavy. The Northern States showed the largest percentage of gain, Michigan leading with 251 per cent. Pennsyl vania now’ has more Negroes than Maryland or Kentucky; Ohio has more than Oklahoma. North Caro lina had a gain of 65,564 and Texas of 51,645, while Virginia, Maryland Florid*, Georgia, South Carolina and Arkansas each gained from twenty thousand to forty thousand. Missis sippi lost 74,303 Kentucky lost 25,718, Tennessee 21,330, Louisiana 13,617 and Alabama 7,630. Sunnyside 0623 DR. JAMES W.

Smith Beyond a doubt, one of the surest indications of a turn for the better, following an extended period of de pression, is the return to work of those who found themselves idle when the wheels of industry ceased revolving. We have passed the winter of the greatest unemployment in the history of the country. Through the fine co-ordination and co-operation among federal and state officials, mayor's relief organizations and citizens, we have come through with much less suffering than in pre vious years when unemployment was very much less. The gains are steady and sustained, and clearly indicate the upward trend of business. Improved weather conditions resulted in better business in all lines during the past week, which brought many optimistic expressions from business men in this community. It is a certainty that the month of July will be the best of the new year so far, and better demand for all com modities throughout the entire summer is seen. On the whole, there 'is con siderable improvement. This year’s business shows a sub stantial improvement over that of last year, and there is a splendid outlook for ensuing months, according to Earl W. Tymony, general manager. The concern was organized in the bO's. 1 hev take front rank as packers, ship pers and movers of household goods. "Who moves you” is just as im portant as “Where you move to.” Efficiency and reliability should be your first thought. This concern always gives lowest prices, cash or time payments. This shows other evi dence that Mr. Tymony, the popular -~ manager, ranks in the forefront of storage concerns in this city. Plans have already been drawn for a new warehouse, and work is expected to begin on this project \a the very near future. When you contemplate mov ing or shipping your household effects, do not fail to give Mr. Tymony a ring. Oakland 3784. "He Knows How.” Frankfort, Ky.
