f, 16 THE AtTOONA MIRRQP-TttuasfrAV. 7, 1928 MIND SCENES IN BUSINESS WORLD By JOHN T. l''J,VNN. NEW YORK, Nov. 7.—At thn begin- ng of thn summer there wis a fueling :at conditions wcn> ripe for an up- irn In the eon! industry. It wns felt iat the bad conditions thorn had now •ached bottom and started up--not :-ry much. But the iniprovemnnt rup-i sented a turn. Now. however, it is on that the improvement Is very little -.•Joed and that optimism must be post- med for awhile. •Five yearn have brought very little the "expected readjustment In the 'luminous coal trade. A survey is ap- roprlate, as reports have just, been 1s- :ed for 1928 on proportionate produc- m of different sized mines nnd on oduction by districts. The two principal complaints are '.at we had "too many coal mines and • o many miners" and that the United Mine Workers held tho union flcldsup > altogether too high wages to per,it competition with the non-union aids. Some adjustment in the supply ' ; miners has taken place, many union ;en having sought other employment. The expectation of some was that Vie overworking of coal properties •ould be corrected In time; that the i irge mines would thrive; through ,;onomy while the small mines would ,le out. The report, just issued, how- ver, shows that there has been no lore than a small readjustment of hat sort. The percentage of the total tltput coming from mine's producing ver 100,000 tons M year hag been as :ollows: 1013, 75.4 per cent; 1923, 70.4 .-or cent, 1920, 79.1 per cent, 1928, 80.1 or cent. That represents progress, >ut not a great deal, for live years, particularly when one considers that iiroduction decreased 11.1 per cunt from 1923 to 1928, which In itself would make ;ome small mines Inactive. As to wage conditions, one finds that in general tho llstrlcts complaining about high wages liave lost farther In proportionate production while the districts complained about have gained. With thin matter of wages, employment, organization and methods thus In the air the problem of over-production remains and we must wait awhile before we can see the Industry as a wnolo pass under the dominion of modern scientific business direction.

C., Nov. 1-r-fhe roundup Is drawing to a close on hill- llbnij of ant. ranches over the United States. With the advent of cold weather, ant colonies start bringing in their cows In much the same way that cowmen 6f the west round up their Kerds, according to Dr. William M. Mann, director of the National Zoological park here. ' The ants' cows are plant lice or aphlds; They have been pastured all summer on trees and shrubs and now they. are being carried Into winter quarters—subterranean nests below the frost line. During the summer, after the aphlda have gotten fat from the Juice, of plants, they are milked by their ant herdsmen. By stoking the fat parasites, the ants obtain ,a fluid which nourishes them. But when the' flratf frosj; comes, the aphlds must be taken Inside. Almost any ant 'colony watched closely at this time of the 1 year can be obserti> carrying HnjT tfhHe Insect* Into the passages WW6h lead to ! hibernating places. •••;••. • In the spring, the ftphlds Will again be brought but to pasture attd carefully guarded through" the summer. Trees are not usually harmed by the ants' coWs but their grazing is sometimes detrimental to corn. SAVES MONET. INDIANAPOLIS, Nov.
