OFF North and Midwest may ‘lose their seats’ MSC Political Forum “The Future of the Big Cities” a mayors panel with Carole McClellan Jim McConn Austin Houston Lila Cockrell San Antonio Mon. Oct. 16 12 Noon MSC 206 United Press International WASHINGTON — In the last quarter of the century, the South and the West will grow so much fas ter than the North and Midwest that New York may lose four congres sional seats and Ohio, Pennsylvania and Illinois two each, the Census Bureau said Thursday. Should recent migration and fer tility and mortality trends continue, the bureau said, states in the boom ing South and West will grow at more than twice the rate of their northern neighbors. In its first projections of states’ census since 1972, the bureau said it generally appears Florida, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado will be the fastest growing states, while the District of Columbia, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and the Dakotas would be slowest growing. The report provides three projections for each state. The first assumes interstate migration will continue to reflect the trends in population from 1965-75, the sec ond is based on the period from 1970-75. A third forecast presumes no net interstate migration from 1975- 2000. Dr. John Long, chief de mographer for the population projections branch, said the sepa rate projections are needed because growth trends differed substantially in 1965-75 versus 1970-75. During the latter period. Long said, “metropolitan areas grew much more quickly than they had before. Great Selection of Guitars Now on Display.

If the 1965-75 forecasts hold true, the bureau said, Florida could pick up three extra congressional seats by the turn of the century, while Texas would gain two new seats and California, Arizona, Maryland, Ore gon, Utah and Tennessee one each. States losing in the congressional numbers game under 1965-70 projections, the bureau said, in clude New York, four; Ohio, Pennsylvania and Illinois, two each; and South Dakota, one. If the population shifts follow the 1970-75 trends, the bureau said, Florida could gain four seats instead of three and Colorado would gain two instead of one. Michigan and Missouri each would drop a seat. NASA officials keep Skylab flying longerli United Press International Skylab flight controllers^ will add a Chilean static.

Hackel understands that Americans do not want to carry bulky silver dollars in their pockets, but she hopes they will change their attitude when the new dollar coin goes into circulation next year. A half billion of the coins bearing the image of American suffragette, Susan B. Anthony on one side and an Apollo 11 Eagle on the other, should be ready for the public by the first week of July 1979. If they become popular — as Mrs. Hackel hopes they do — they could save the government millions of dollars. At a news conference Wednes day, Mrs. Hackel displayed an enlarged likeness of the new coin and announced the plan to have it in production early next year. None of the coins will be released until 500 million are minted to prevent col lectors from hoarding them. Mrs. Hackel said she and other federal officials will make a major ef fort to have people accept the coins because they think it is important. Without such action, consumers might continue using dollar bills be cause “people don’t like to change their habits,” she said. The coins actually should be a lot easier for Americans to use, Mrs. Hackel said.

Amin may retaliate against Americans United Press International NAIROBI, Kenya — Uganda’s President Idi Amin Thursday said he is bn the verge of retaliating against a U.S. trade embargo by tak ing “very drastic” action against the 300 Americans who live in his coun try. Amin’s threat, broadcast by Radio Kampala, gave no hjnt of what steps the dictator contemplated. The U.S. congressmen who spon sored the trade embargo said their action also was retaliation, against the “ferocious, institutionalized brutality” that has killed tens ol ^\ffnrttesf Marne, SHIPLEY’S DONUT SHOP AFTER STUDYING, STOP IN FOR SOME FRESH DONUTS OR A FLAMEBURGER.
