of my commentaries Id have felt required to define the term It isnt necessary now Suburbia has become an im portant part of 1960 United States and it is by no means confined to our great centers of population This movement of town and city folk to the wide open spaces to the land of the kafee klatch the power mower and the charcoal cookout constitutes the one most important phe nomenon revealed in the 1960 census It has been described as one of the great social revolu tions of modern times In this past decade the na tions suburbs have grown sb times faster than their paren cities They have accounted fo nearly twothirds of the total na tional population increase of 26 million persons since 1950 Of course this movement to the suburbs is not exactly a new FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES UNITED NATIONS N Prime Minister Nehru Monday called for unanimous General Assembly approval of a neutral st demand for an Eisenhower Khrushchev meeting despite the Presidents rejection of the plan Nehru supported Russias de mand for seats for Communist Ihina and Outer Mongolia in the United Nations Eisen PRESIDENT SETS RECORD President hower who will be 70 Oct 14 Monday became the oldest president to occupy the White House He re places Andrew Jackson who left office 11 Andy Jacksons Record Falls AP Photofax days before he was 70 At left Eisenhower is shown as he looks today At center hes shown at a 1953 news conference after he took office He still looks as chip per as ever thing It started at least a half u S history century ago and it has continuec to gain momentum In the las 10 years it has amounted al most to a flight to the sub urbs It has dipped down to communities of typical county seat size IT ISNT TOO DIFFICULT to understand the factors that pro moted this migration to the outer fringes of our towns and cities The automobile made it possible for persons working in the city to live outside in places off the commuter lines to which urban dwellers had previously been tied Then too there was the desire of families with children to get out of congested districts into homes of their own in more spacious surroundings Helpftig the development were mush rooming real estate promotions that put a multitude of homes on the market at a wide range of small down pay ments long term contracts and easily available loans Figures from this years cen sus show that the suburban sec tions of the countrys 189 metro politan areas grew 47 per cent in the last census while the cen tral cities in these areas gained only 8 per cent The march to suburbia accounted for 17 mil lion of the indicated population gain of 26 million in the fifties NOR IS THAT ALL of the story This migration to the sub urbs is still in progress Theres no indication that it has reached its peak At the current rate of growth the United States will have 59 million more people in 1975 than it has now Of these and this is the figure that is significant so far as this little visit with you is concerned 37 million of those 59 miUion more inhabitants will be suburbanites Naturally this mass move ment of people has created some serious problems The overall problem seems to divide into two parts On the one hand the central city areas that are losing pop ulation are caught in a vicious cycle of reduced tax income spreading blight increasing crime and race tensions On the other hand the sub urbs have their difficulties New residents are coming faster than they can be readily absorbed and provided with the essential public facilities they require Troubles also arise because of the lack of sufficient planning NOW TO DISCUSS somt of those problems briefly The census shows the centers of most of our larger cities have been losing population Four of our largest cities with a million or more population actually had lower count in 1960 than in 1950 These were New York Chi cago Philadelphia and Detroit Los Angeles which has an nexed much territory in recent years was the only one of the five to gain A prime example of the city CtntinwMl tn W Ike almost 70 hale and hearty as the nations oldest president WASHINGTON David Eisenhower Monday be came the oldest president in Just 11

younger aides thanks to a routine that has seen him recover from three physical setbacks during his nearly eight years in office He suffered a heart attack in 1955 underwent an ileitis opera tion in 1956 and had a mild stroke in 1957 But now the President agrees with his doc tors that hes in fine physical condition His prescription for keeping in shape despite the rigorous de mands of the worlds toughest job includes lots of golf using an electric cart no smoking an occasional Scotch whisky highball and controlling a hot temper WHITE HOUSE Physician Maj Gen Howard Snyder says Eisenhower also
