Election to Be on Basis of New Figures By CHARLES P STEWART Nov 10 t The house of r e p r esentatives which the voters have just chosen is the last one that the United States will have elected on the 1910 population basis The next one will be elected on the 1930 census basis There should have been a re v If apportionment fe as they call it on the 1920 basis but that one was skipped It was skipped because it was evident that reapportionment would euchre a lot of representatives out of their jobs and those who considered themselves in danger wanted to the evil day as long as they could By ignoring 1920 they did manage to postpone it 10 years Had they dared they would have postponed it another 10 but the constitution re quires a decennial reapportionment and they lacked the nerve to defy tha constitution twice HOWEVER the fight isnt ended jyet only scattered Hitherto it has been one big battle royal here in Washington over congress scandalous unconsti tutional delay in readjusting the states respective proportions of rep resentation to suit their varying rates of growth Now it is due to resolve itself into a multiplicity of little battles raging one each in most of

Christian Socialists in Second Place to LeftWing WIENNA Nov 10 V fascists gained their first firm footing in the nationalrat lower house of parliament today Mount ing returns from yesterdays gen eral elections showed that they had captured eight seats in the body They previously had no direct repre sentation Their seats were gained by virtue of a clause in the Austrian election laws which permits proportional representation providing one man date or seat is actually won by ma jority For a while it appeared the fascists would not capture this sin gle seat but a plurality over other parties in a styrian constituency gave them the necessary valida tion for other parcels of ballots which totalled sufficient for an eight seat representation The least enviable vote in the new parliament will be that of the Chris tian socialists who for 10 years have practically governed Austria unchallenged but now are returned to the house with only G6 members formerly talcing second jlace left wing group
