The majority of American homes are heated by coal. Because of this there is an inclination to believe that coal's primary use is in the home furnace or stove. Actually, it is used for countless purposes of which the public is not aware. So far the coal industry has meet every essential need, in spite of strikes. If it had not, our homes would not only be unheated, but they would be short of electric light and power. And that would be the least of our troubles. Steel mills and trains, in fact our entire industrial mechanism would grind to a halt. More than 200,000 different products depend on coal. American civilization is built on coal literally as well as figuratively. Last year the United States bituminous coal industry mined more coal than had even been taken out of the ground in any country at any time in the history of the world. This year the country needs an additional 37,000,000 tons. Thanks to the determination of the industry, the country already has 22,000,000 of them. If there had been any real coal shortage we would not now be carrying news of victory in Europe. That is how much you depend on coal ! , Terre Haute Star. FANTASTIC SAVINGS. At the end of 1941, less than three years ago, the American people had about half of the $130,000,000,000 accumulated savings that they possess today, according to the Securities and Exchange Commis Bunny Waters.

She was dressed with more care than usual, and her hair was newly waved. She smiled at Russell and patted his arm, then held out her hand to Dan. "We haven't seen you in years, You're looking very well." Anne said, "Mr. Smith did everything." "You, Russell? How sweet. After we're married you'll be such a help. I didn't realiEe." He made no answer, but heaped salad on a plate for her. Dan looked from one to 4he other, then winked at Anne, who sat very still. Getting no response, he pushed back his chair noisily and went for coffee. He returned, dragging his feet, and banged the kitchen pot on the table. He had suddenly stopped smiling;. Laura patted Russell's arm. "Dan always was unconventlon al, wasn't he?" She turned to Anne with sugary sweetness. "And you, Anne, what tinid was mother expecting you to go for her? She likes to come home very early, you know. It's your job to keep her from overdoing." Anne rose quietly.
