WASHINGTON -) - Final re-
sults of the 1960 census were made
public yesterday by the Com-
merce Department, which said
half of the 50 states will gain or
lose seats in the House of Re-
presentatives because of popula-
'" tion shifts.
Each state which picks up or
loses House seats will gain or lose
the same number of votes in the
electoral college, which formally
selects the president. Each state's
vote in the electoral college is the
sum of its senators-two-and
House members.

To Combat Payments I

AUGUSTA (R) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday
approved a decision ordering
government departinents a n d
agencies to take new action to
reduce the nation's mounting de-
ficit in balance of payments.
The President announced he
would issue a special new directive
on this problem within the next
46 hours.

Eisenhower made known his de-
ision after a two and one-half
hour conference at his vacation
headquarters with his secretaries
of the treasury and defense.
"The deficit for 1980,now looks
as if it could possibly approach
last year's figures," treasury sec-
retary Robert B. Anderson said
after the meeting.
In 1959 this deficit totalled some

Report Shows
New Increase
In U.S. Trade
eign trade improved last summer
but higher interest rates abroad
drained off short-term capital and
caused a dramatic rise in the
United States balance of pay-
ments deficit.
A preliminary report by the
Commerce Department yesterday
indicated that boom conditions in
Europe and a slippage of the
United States economy combined
to produce these conditions in the
July-September quarter.
Thus, a prospering Europe
bought more from the United
States while this country did not
buy as much from abroad.
Simultaneously, European in-
terest rates were boosted to curb
inflation there while rates in this
country were lowered in an effort
to spur the lagging economy.
However, the flight of "hot
money"-capital shifted about to
seek the highest yield-may be
stemmed because interest rates
have been declining in Europe.
Also, the Federal Reserve Board
recently has moved to increase
rates on short-term United States
Treasury securities.
During the July - September
quarter, the value of United States
exports topped the value of im-
ports by about $58 billion at an
annual rate.
The Commerce Department re-
port showed this trade surplus was
about 20 per cent bigger than in
the April-June quarter.
But the department estimated
the balance of payments deficit
rose in the July-September quar-
ter to an annual rate of $4.3 billion
from $2.9 billion in the preceding
three months.

Pennsylvania will lose three
seats. New York, Massachusetts
and Arkansas will lose two each.
Dropping one seat apiece will be
Alabama, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas,
Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Mis-
sissippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North
Carolina and West Virginia.
The number of losses exceeds
the number of gains because the
Houses currently has 437 members
instead of the usual 435. Two extra
seats were granted to Alaska and
Hawaii after they obtained state-
hood. The number will revert to
435 after the reapportionment.
The report will go from Congress
to the 50 state governors who will,
where necessary, ask their state
legislatures to draw new bound-
aries for Congressional districts.
At Large
If a legislature fails to act before
the 1962 election, all house mem-
bers from that state will be elect-
ed at large if the state has lost
seats. If it has gained, the addi-
tional representatives will be
elected at large.
The state population figures
showed that Florida had the big-
gest population increase, percent-
agewise, between 1950 and 1960.

The $110 million sub, carrying
the most destructive war force in
the history of man, opened a new
era in warfare.
Before the powerful, 380-foot
sub slipped beneath the water,
President Dwight D. Eisenhower,
vacationing at Augusta, Ga., said,
"The George Washington and her
following sister ships possess a
power and relative invulnerability
which will make suicidal any at-
tempt by an aggressor to attack
the free world by surprise."
