Governor Robert F. Bennett of Topeka, Kansas works on a first draft of his annual address to the Kansas Legislature. This excerpt of his draft concerns state population trends. Governor Bennett claims that in 1975-1976 more people moved to Kansas than left it, reversing a consistent trend of out-migration since 1900. The Governor's first draft includes seven paragraphs on the subject of population while the finished address includes only four sentences.
