Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LEIHMIDGE HESALD Snluidny, Odobcr H, 1972 What is population of China? PEKING (Meulerl What Is the population at China? Just lunv many Micro are in the world's most-popu- lous country is difficult lo tell, ami it looks as though the Chinese (heni.--elves do not know.

Tlie sum total of ilicsc i amounts lo C97.6 million, yet the chapter about China in the Atlas twice refers to the pop- ulation as "more than 700 million." liven this falls short of 'all recent estimates, and as long ago as June. I960, official news media put China's popu- lation at 700 million. In April this year. Premier Cliou En-lai indicated that the figure was well past the 7M million mark when he said in an interview: "There is no question tha< the population at present has exceeded 700 mil- lion. We tend to believe Ihat it is more than 701) nvl- lion. brt net yet close to COO million." Anywhere in that range rnearis that Chinese mate up ft quarter of the world's peo- ple. Facts and figures about China's millions have been difficult to pin down since the last full-scale official census of .lune 1933. When figures for that poll were released 16 months later, the number (it people was fixwl at G01.938.lUo. In I960, an official statisti- cal handbook called Ten Great Years gave the popula- tion in 1957 as 64G.5 growth rale of about 2.5 per cent. Chinese officials have long said they want to keep the birth rate well below two per cent, but the fragmentary fig- ures that have been available since the 1057 total have not established whether this has been achieved. If it has not, the total will have soared to more than 800 million by now, but in the meantime there has been a widespread birth-control cam- paign. The new Atlas docs not specify the source of its fig- ures and some of them differ ures for individual provinces mentioned in provincial raciio broadcasts. The figure for Kukien prov- ince, tor example, is given in the Atlas us while Fukien radio in n broadcast last January gave the total as 20 million. Tho totals seem to indicate that most of the Atlas figures date back In 19117 or and now are obsolete. The sum of all the latest available figures for eacli province, as given by provin- cial radio stations or reports by the official New China news agency, independently totalled, pivcs an over-all fig- ure of 732.420.UOO. This is the nearest estimate passible to a current popula- tion figure for China based on official statistics, but it would peg the birth-rate since at just over one per almost impossibly low rate.

As John explains, the brain is anatomically symmetrical, and in good health both the amount of energy and the shape of the electrical waves are sim- ilar.
