"One of the most important fac-
ors in narrowing the gap between'
ural and urban facilities for de-
elopment has been the founding
f higher institutions of learning
n rural districts," writes Prof. Roy
Fin man Holmes of the sociology
lepartnent, in an article in the
urrent number of the American
Tournal of Sociology entitled "A
Study in the Origins of Distin-
;ulshed Living Americans."
"Most of the men mentioned in
W'ho's Who are college men," con-
inues Professor Holmes. "In round
umbers, 77 out of every 100 per-
ons giving educational data, whose
ame appear in the 1922-1923 edi-
ion, attended college, and 64 out
f every 100 were college graduates.
The great eastern cities and many
f the smaller cities in the eastern
tates have all through the period'
under consideration been able to
ifford their young people the op-
ortunity to attend college without
heir being obliged to leave home.
n the nature of the case, most
ountry young people can never be
o fortunately situated. Every col-
ege, however, that is established in
irural area makes its -contribu-
ion toward increasing the ratio
f the distinguished rural-born."
In his abstract Professor Holmes
ays, "a study of Who's Who in
gmerica reveals the fact that the
ities have been more than twice
s productive individuals of emin-
ence as "the rural districts.
"In 1840, it took a rural popula-
ion of about 36,000 to produce each
ndividual, yet living, who found his

way into Who's Who, while it took,
but about 9,000 urban population
to produce such an individual. In
other words, in 1940, the urban
part of our population was about!
four times as productive of dis-'
tinguished men and women as the]
rural. By 1870, urban productivity
of such individuals was but two and
a quarter times as great as rural.:
In 1880, the cities' relative produc-
tivity had apparently increased
slightly; and in 1890, the cities' ap-
parent showing was still better, al-
though not as good as it had been
in 1860.
