Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 9, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta JP^OE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9. 1918 e King Of The Rockies WTirn Ills Tjaci? broken by a lucXy ' AA/ or' unlucky shot the big nioun-trnln blUy of a section of lh� ' Itockles In the heiutwaters ot tb4 Kooteriay River, alts awaiting th .> .> Dr. Otto Kiolz, F,R.A.S., F.R.A. S.C;, of the Dominion observatory, Ottawa, has worked, out some very interesting and perhaps terrifying figures. on the population ot the earth, based on a work by G. H. Kalbbs, of Australia, in a recent volume "The Mathematical Theory ot Population." Mr. Knlbbs, taking fho yaars/lSOl to 1014, examines the annual rates ot Increa-se per 10,000 in different countries and arrives at certain data as follows: Lowest annual increase, 1804 to 1914, .001.'. average annual rate, .OOS64; annual increase" for 'ipYance, 190G to 1911, .OOlC; weighted average annual increase, 1016 (.0 1911, .001159. The world's population in 1914 was 1,694 mllUdn people. . , Taking these data Dr. Klotz says that as we can look back 2,000 years in history we can also look forward and. figure out Uiat 2,000 years hence, at the rate ot Increase In Prance, the world would have 2!i times its present population and at the greatest rate the population would be tea thousand. million times (the present population. Overcrowding World The next problem Dr. Klotz,deals with is how long before the earth win be crowded to the maximum pbsslbie the earth can support, allowing that two' acres can support one man. At the'lowest rate . the limit, would be reached In 1314 years, at the average rate 1232 years; at the French rate 229 years, and at the hfigheBt rate only 171 years. ' "These ligurea," says Dr. lilotz, "are simply alarming, showing at the present rate we are near the end of our tether." It we reduce the land allowance to one acre, it would only'deter the ievll day ot the figure by 60 years and that ot the second by about 430 years." Ovar Earth'* Weight The doctor adds yet 'one more terrific figure.
