WAY(51~'SS -- Businessmen all over the country are vitally inter- ~ted in the information on income which is beiag collected durin.g the 17th 'Decennial Census of the Uni- ted ~tates during April These data will provide market surveyors with 1)reeise information on the relative buying power of various sections of the country. Advertising campaigns, sales quotas, bank financing of old and new enterprises and similar eco- nomic programs will depend on the income information collected in the Census. In the 1950 Census the amount of income from three sources -- wages or salry, own business, and sources other than earnings -~ will be reported for a sample of one in five persons 14 years old and over in one family in five. The reason for o~b~aining these data on a sample basis is that it would be too costly to attempt to get the income infer? marion in the country Information on the incomes of men and women living in urban and rural areas, and ~wvrking at various types of jobs will be tabulated by the Census Bu- reau for the Nation, for regions, for States, and for metropolitan areas. Family income tabulations will also be made along similar lines and will include also statistics for each coun- ty and each u~ban place, It is expected that the income fi- gures obtained in the census will re- flect some of the momentous econo- mic changes which have taken place in the United S!tates during the vast 10 years. An indication of the mag,- niture of some of these changes is revealed by estimates from a'recent special Census Bureau survey which showed that the income ow wage.- earner families has more than dou- bled since the last Census.

Like every- thing else in Boys' Estate, this struc- ture was built by the boys. To be sure, the young citizens did not consruct in entirety the Albany and Friendly cottages: where tlJey live, nor the graceful Spanish ha- cienda where they e~t. But .they helped clear the land, lay the foun- dations, and assist throughou~ where ever a boy of 8 to 18 could be use- ful. hi T's is symbolic 0f the 45 boys now in residence in this municipal- ity which s almost entrely run by its citizens along the finest lnes of democracy. . i; s The citizens of Boys' Estate run ~heir tittle community almost with- : : otiS: adult supervision.
