Perhaps the most striking tendency in recent decades is the narrowing of the rights that go with land ownership. This is in accordance with economic evolution. As the use of land is in tensified, problems of social control become more important. Zoning and subdivision control are representative of many in stances of this tendency. The increasingly urban character of the country undoubtedly will accelerate this movement. Withal the ideal of private owner-occupation of land will probably con tinue to dominate. Measures of social control are designed to enable the great class of freeholders to realize more fully the benefits of this system of land tenure.
