Q:  

I have funny results for the distribution of education using 1950 IPUMS data. What am I doing wrong?

A:  

The 1950 sample is a 1-in-100 national weighted sample. Every household had one "sample-line" person who answered additional census questions. When applying weights you should use the sample-line weight.

See sample size for description.

Questions the sample-line person answered revolve around migration, education, and birthplace.

Even using the sample-line weight will not give you an exact match to the micro data sample.
