To All Coal Users YOU MUST FILE CONSUMER DECLARATION BY MAY 15th — to be assured of receiving Coal before Next Winter ALL CONSUMERS OF COAL, COKE AND OTHER SOLID FUELS must me a CONSUMER DECLARATION liy May 15th. The SOLID FUELS ADMINISTRATION has found it necessary to generally limit to 80% of your normal year's supply virtually all coals and coke for "domestic consumption." This reduction was necessary due to lack of manpower at the mines, increased demands of war industries anil the unprecedented burden on the Nation's transportation system. THE SOLID FUELS APMfWSj 1 KAI (UN through Mr. Gilford D. Miller, of Des Moiiies, Area Distribution Manager, wish to emphasize the advantages which will result if your application is filed before May 15th—and also point, out that dealers are prohibited from making deliveries between April 1, 1915, to March 81, 1946, unless you have filed a Consumer Declaration. 30 percent Delivery Now If you place your Consumer Declaration and an order before May 15, 1!>45, with the dealer who regularly supplied your house or building with solid fuel last year, you are entitled to get, before October 1, 1945, at Jeast 30 per cent of your normal annual requirements if you are ready, willing, and aide to take delivery of any usable solid fuel on terms agree- .able to you and the dealer. SIGN YOUR CONSUMER DECLARATION NOW with your regular fuel dealer and give him an order for the tonnage you are entitled to receive. Under a temporary modification of the 80% restriction you can take 100% delivery of all coals sold in this market such as ,Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas Missouri, Oklahoma, and West Kentucky. IF YOU USE POCAHONTAS, EASTERN KENTUCKY OR WEST VIRGINIA YOU ARE STILL LIMITED TO 80% OP YOUR NORMAL YEAR'S TONNAGE—BUT YOU CAN ORDER ENOUGH OF THE UNRESTRICTED COALS TO MAKE UP THE DIFFERENCE OR 100% If you take it first and when available. ALLOW YOUR DEALER TO MAKE DELIVERY NOW at l«a*t to the extent of your coal bin capacity. If delivery is "put off" until fall the dealers will be faced with a serious "bottleneck" due to limited manpower and truck facilities. An order for "delivery now" will protect your winter's requirements— and allow your dealer to utilize his delivery facilities for the benefit, of all coal users. Please Remember: • Every solid fuel user must sign a declaration. • Your fuel dealer has the required form. • It should be filed by May 15th. • You receive preference if declaration is accompanied with specific order. • Take delivery now.
