The ratio of mean multiplicity to total cross-section is shown to be the same for all the Regge models and to rise with energy as lns which is confirmed by experimental data. Hence, a power of multiplicity growth is simply connected with that of total cross-section. As regards the observed growth, <n>≈ln2s, it tells us about a dipole character of pomeron singularity.
