On Increase
In Big Cities
Sharp Reports Drop
In White Populations
Harry P. Sharp, director of the
University's Detroit Area Study
reported yesterday that the non-
white population of the largest
metropolitan areas has increased
by over one million in the last.
At the same time, these areas
have lost over two million white
In suburban areas an "amiazingly
constant and amazingly high"
color division has been upheld in
the past 30 years, Sharp said in
a New York speech to the Popula-
tion Association of America. "Most
of us would probably agree, how-
ever, that the major factor in
residential clustering by race, is
restrictive selling practices which
ultimatlel are based on racial
prejudice," hee added.
Young Couples
The loss of white residents in
cities, Sharp said, is explained by
the fact that young couples find
homes in suburbs more attractive.
Another factor Sharp cited was
the erroneous fear of property de-
preciation in racially-integrated
Non-white population In metro-
politan areas has increased be-
cause of higher birth rates and
good opportunity for low status
jobs, he said. The lower economic
position of non-whites has curbed
the growth of non-white subur-
ban population.
The Implications of this change
in metropolitan residency will in-
hibit the collection of sufficient
taxes to meet the increasing costs
of city government.
Remains White
Right now 93 to 99 per cent of
inhabitants of the 12 largest cities
remains white. In the past three
decades the ratio of non-white to
white in these metropolitan areas
has risen from three per cent to
five per cent.
The study made in New Yoxk,
Los Angeles-Long Beach, Chicago,
Philadelphia, Detroit, San Fran-
cisco-Oakland, Boston, Pittsburgh,
St. Louis, Washington, Cleveland,
and Baltimore revealed that San
Francisco-Oakland, with a greater
increase in non-white population,
was the only exception to the gen-
eral trend.
In Philadelphia and four other'
eastern cities studied the non-
white population has actually de-
clined. But in all the cities the
number of white persons has "de-
clined drastically" with the great-
est dip in the 'Fifties.

Goines Leads Assembly

"Our interests shouldn't conflict.
If I had to pick the organization
with whom Assembly has had the
best relationship this year, I would
automatically say 'Panhel'."
'Very Closely'
"We've worked together very
closely, especially on the problems
involving rush. Assembly oeileves
that they have a very definite
interest in safeguarding the rushee
as well as the independent woman
during this period."
Neither has Assembly had any
difficulties, working with the ad-
ministration, Myra says. "The
dean's office respects our view-
point. We don't necessarily agree
on everything, and often we don't
achieve a huge victory, but at
least we've sat down and have
come to understand each other's
