By United Press More factories closed, more persons were thrown out of work, more railroads reduced service and more brownouts were imposed today as the coal crisis grew more serious by the hour. •>; As the coal mine strike began its 38th day. these were the major developments in the coal shortage that has imperiled industry and disrupted the lives of millions: 1. The effect of the coal shortage hit the great Detroit industrial center. The city council passed jn ordinance for a drastic power rilm- oul, and the Ford Motor Co. announced it will cose most of (he plants of its far-flung system at midnight tonight. About 100.000 workers will be unemployed. 2. Chicago, hardest hit by the shortage, iaced the prospect of a completed blackout, with all business and industry closing down within two weeks. Only essential public services would be left operating if the blackout becomes necessary. 3. The government prohibited delivery of coal to household users who had more than a five-day supply on hand. Exempted from the restrictions were hospitals, public utilities, railroads, food plants and other essential users with less than a 10-day stockpile on hand. * The Virginia Electric and power :Co. announced It would ration Olecijicity in 63 Virginia counties begirtnnig Thursday. 5.

"There is no 'possibility of rationing in the first crucial period of world food shortages." whicli probably will end about July 1, he said.

Berlin lodny—Berlin, thc citv of .1.000.000 people—will sec empty facades of burned-out houses everywhere, very often only desolate heaps ot ruins. No one oni expect that, tlie war's destructive work will have disappeared after only one year. Thc furies of a merciless destruction have singed Berlin's face loo heavily. And yet. the difference between Berlin today and one year ,-igo is striking. Pavements and roads, covered everywhere after thc collnpw with unimaginable masses of debris and dirt, very often impassable for miles, have been cleared. It was a titanic task In which every man and every woman who could work participated. Today the streets present the picture of a well-organized order. There is neither resignation nor fatalism in Berlin. Here the pioneer spirit Is at work, lull ol hone for thc future. This spirit been responsible for putting all means of traffic and utility works back into operation. At least the rudimentary daily routine hns al water supply is functioning and. although rationed, we have electricity and gns at our disposal.

Although our administration tackled Hie problem vigorously, all our efforts would have been In vain If we had not been assured of thc help and support of the Allies nnd some other agencies, especially the Red Cross.
