Fuel and: transportation restrictions have been ordered in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio Mafy- land,-Virginia and West Virginia, as well as the District of Columbia. In addition, the curbing of transportation affects New Jersey, while thc restrictions on fuel extends to Kentucky. Another freight embargo, prohibiting snow bound railroads from hauling non-essential cargoes, went into effect at 10 o'clock this morning. . The restriction on thc use of fuel, while snow and zero temperatures arc, prevalent, curtails the consumption of natural nnd mixed gas throughout thc area. Some 200 vital war industries are affected. What's more, all amusement centers in thc area, such as movies, night clubs, bars and bowlln" alloys, ore prohibited from using ruiy gas whalsocvcr. until Monday evening nt 7 o'clock. Tlie government also has ap- penled to householders to keep thermometers in thc home at a reading of Co or lower. And federal authorities have told local officials they can close .schools on Monday to save fuel. Up-stale New York is hit hardest. In Syracuse, thc snowfall this' winter has already adder! up lo n fraction more than 112 indies. Another half an inch would match the nil-time record, established 43 years ngo. Syracuse officials have borrowed 100 German prisoners of war to shove) the snow away. Dozens of remote New York villages nnd farms arc virtually cut off from Hie rest of the world, unable to get the supplies necessary for health and comfort. Many unusual rescue missions have been carried out. Slate troopers scudded two and a half miles in a toboggan over 10 to 15 foot drifts to rescue a family of eight from their snow bound faun near Schencctady. New York Cotton Mar. May July Oct.

'Rial still leaves Czechoslovakia to lay claim, probably not only to what territory she held before the war, but another chunk as well. But the loss of square mileage nlone does not tell thc story of Germany's coming economic Impoverishment. Tlie land being or to be claimed by Germany's natural nnd Industrial resources, that part of thc Ruhr west of tho Rhine will be a heavy loss to the Germans lot It's heavy. Industrialized. Silesia Is Germany's eastern Ruhr, not only holding vast amounts ol manufacturing but also holding huge stores of natural resources. Beyond that the Sanr Basin Is Germany's coal pocket ns well as an Industrial center. Franco intends to claim It, and- whether or not France's full demands arc met at the peace table, one thing seems certain. The Sanr and its mines will not jo back to Germany. As far as geographical delineations arc concerned, Germany will uot bo completely stripped ns an industrial nation. She will still hnvc thc Ruhr cast of the Rhine, nnd most of thc Rhineland, bomb-battered as they re. She still will have her industrial organization centering around Berlin, badly damaged as It Is. But from present prospects, the Germans may not be running themselves Independently for many years to come. And even when they do, they'll be dependent upon their neighbors for . the resources with which to produce. And dependence upon others Is a great stabilizer of anybody's belligerent attitudes. • Chicago Wheat open high low close pr.cl.
