divorces compared with the year 1927 ranged from decreases of 308 per cent in j the District of Columbia and 123 per cent in Florida to increases of 329 per cent in Nevada and 541 per cent in Vermont Changes in the laws governing divorces effective in 1927 are re sponsible for the figures shown for Nevada and Vermont In the case of the former the residence require menthas been modified from 6to 3 months in the latter all divorces granted after July 1 1927 are not final tdr six months after the grant Ing of the decree Coiisequently the figures for1927 represent1 only such divorces aswere granted during the first six months of that year The decrease reported by the District of Columbia is due directly to the num ber of cases heard In 1027 whfch had been held over from 1926 when a strongly contested patent case oc cupied the time of one of the courts to the exclusion of divorce cases The ratio of divorces per 1000 of the population in the individual1 states in1928 ranged from 018 in the District of Columbia and in New York to 338 in Oregon and 3352 in Nevada Iowa which is classified in the West North Central section is list ed with Minnesota Missouri North Dakota South Dakota Nebraska and Kansas Divorces Decreasing There were 21048 marriages in Iowa in 1927 and 20529 in 1928 showing a decrease of 25 per cent Number per 1000 of the popula tion for 1927 was 87 as compared with 85 in 1928 There were five marriages to one divorce as an aver age Statistics show 4226 divorces for Iowa in 1927 and 4076 in 1928 This showed a decrease of 35 percent for the last year recorded The num ber 1000 population for 1927 was 174 and for 1928 It wag 168 For 1927 there were 30 annulments and for 1928 there were 26 It follows that a decrease of 35 per cent in divorces as compared with 25 decrease in marriage shows a greater trend toward decrease in Iowa divorces as compared with the marriages Transcript Auxiliary and Legion Selects Officers for NewYearat Meeting MANLY
