“Just as serious as my situation.
I really am a little frightened. Mr.

Because of numerous requests for
this information, the raltlve number
of marriages to each divorce has been
computed. In 1931, for the United
States as a whole. 5.8 marriages for
each divorce were reported, as against
5.9 in 1930. The District of Columbia
and New York State, each having but
one cause for absolute divorce, re
ported 21.7 and 22.4, respectively,
while the rates in the other States
ranged from 12.1 marriages to each
divorce in Georgia to 1.5 marriages
to each divorce in Nevada.
The changes in the various States
as regards the number of divorcee
compared with the year 1930. ranged
from a decrease of 26.4 per cent in
Mississippi to an increase of 101 6 per
cent in Nevada. Increased rates for
divorces were reported in 11 other
Statei, New Hampshire, Connecticut,
New York, New Jersey, Wisenonutn,
North Dakota, Mouth Dakota. Georgia,
Kentucky, Wyoming, and Utah. Ths
number of divorces granted in the
District of Columbia more than dou
