Town Wants Recount On Census Figures

    Harlan, Ky. (U. P.) - The city fathers can't understand it.

    The 1940 census showed 5, 122 persons living there.

    Since, 1940, more than 100 new buildings have been erected, living quarters are scarcer and many homes housed one family have two or even three families.

    But the 1950 census shows 4, 728 persons living here, a drop of nearly 400.
