She writes that the State of California placed full page ad on January 5, 1924 that encouraged :people to move to the Golden State, saying that California was very modern, spent a lot of money on roads and schools, children grew taller there because of the sunshine and good , and ended by saying:
There is comfortable room in California for 26,000,000 more people.
Which would be fine—but now California has 37, 000, 000 people.
