STAR-JOURNAL BUREAU, Munsey Building. WASHINGTON, D C, Feb. 18. The map of the redistricting of Ohio under the new reapportionment on a basis of twenty-two congressmen has created quite a distuibance among the Ohio congiessmen, republicans and democrats alike. One reason for this is that there is every possibility that the new districts as indicated will be approved, inasmuch as the map was drawn by several memoers ot import- ince on the committee on federal ie- lations at Columbus and was sent to Washington by the chairman of that committee. The members principally affected are1 Representatives Anderson, Sharp, Ansberry, Howland, Ashbrook and several of the new congressmen from he northeastern pait of the state. By .he apportionment as provided for >y the map, Anderson and Sharp aie Hit in same district and the dis- .riet is, on past showing, more than republican. Neither the Fostor- a or Elyria members are losing aiij her of the 62nd congress should be a- volded. In anj I hope the ie- distiicting mil be just to both pau- ies so that no charge of unfair pai- tisanship can be made Repiesentatn-e Sharp fcTThe only democrat who ever carried the rock- ribbed republican Hth eistrict tw-i.-e m succession In the vote last week upon the apportionment bill wheicby membeiship of the house was laigel'v increased he was one of the only three democrats on his side of the house who voted against the inciease. The new reapportionment makes Rowland's district strongly democrat- ic, but does not affect the tnenty-flrst distiict which remains republican. Thi ST nUREAU, Dispatch Bi'ildmg COLUMBUS. 0.
