HANNA BLUEFIELD W) — Bitumunous coal production for the first three quarters of 1955 has increased tremendously over the same period of 1954, according to all available figures. The reason? Apparently, it's a combination of exports to foreign countries and the general "good times" the nation now is experiencing. A look at production figures of a number of coal fields in Virginia, West Virginia and Kentucky make apparent the huge increase. Winding Gulf Operators' Assn. report covering 21 mines 'in Raleigh County and part of Wyoming County. W. Va.. showed production of 4,953,039 tons from Jan. 1 to Oct. 1 of 'this year, compared to 3,656,159 tons in the same period last year. Sharp weekly increases were noted in the report. For the week ended Oct. 1, 148,514 tons were produced, a 55.5 gain over the 95,432 tons produced-in the corresponding week last year.- January to October tonnage in some other West Virginia and Kentucky fields', with last year's figures in parentheses: Williamson field. 11,733,150 (8.655,150); Logan field; 14,226,150 (10,059,450); Kanawha Field, 12,206,150 (9,738,550); Big Sandy, Ky. field, 9,519,290 (7,301,720), and Hazard, Ky. field, 4,943,850 (3,986,850). . The Virginia Coal Operators' Assn. at Norton reported production in its area of 6,820,535 tons during the first three quarters of this year, compared to 4,866,188 tons in the same period last year, an increase of-40.1 per cent. The Pocahontas Operators' Assn. at Bluefield, in a report coverin; 42 mines in Virginia and West Virginia, noted production to the week ended Oct. 1 of 19,781,152 tons. During the same period last year, production was 16,647,921 tons. The weekly average to Oct. 1 was 507,209 tons, while last year it was 426,870. Finally, a report of the. U. S. Dept. of Interior showed that total U. S. production from January to Oct. of bituminous coal and the lower grade lignite was 340,140,000 tons, up 20.8 per cent over last', year's production for the same period of 281,617,000. Most coal operators attribute the increase largely to increased demand abroad. A look at export figures, which show a more marked increase than the coal production reports, will show why they believe this to be the cause. Hampton Roads loadings for the first eight months of this year increased 69.6 per cent and the loadings already exceed the total for all of last year. Baltimore loadings have increased 44 per cent; Philadelphia 14 per cent, and New York is up 3 per cent. Total Tidewater loadings of bituminous coal destined for foreign countries increased 45.2 per cent, or 12 million tons during the first eight months of this year.

What you know r health Thereare aU kinds of plans and packages ^ailstble, but be sure you buy what you actually need... KNOWING THE FACTS PAYS OFF Buying .health insurance? Thinking of adding to,your present coverage? ;Then be ? sure you know what your policy should provide... what cover- ages you need... what to look for and .what to avoid in : health insurance. PROTECT YOUR INCOME FIRST In any complete program of heaith insurance, income 'protection against disability should be your first step. Savings may "pay ""for hospital care, but it takes considerably more to replace the income you would lose if you are seriously disabled. For example, let's say you earn $100 ja week... and you're laid up because •of a sickness or accident for 5 months. |This would .mean a loss of about '$2,100. Everything depends on your incorrfe. It's ivorth protecting. .There are several names for this kind of insurance — income replacement, loss of time, income protection. But whatever you call it, be sure your policy lets you choose the income you [need. Be sure it covers accidents and illness. Be sure the maximum benefit periods are of least 12 months for sickness, 4 years for accidents. HOSPITALIZATION IS NEXT ."Hospital Expense insurance should cover you and your entire family for hospital room and board . .. for all the extras such as X-rays, ambulance, anesthesia, etc for maternity ex- ^penses... and for surgery. . •Flexible policies-are best... policies that let you choose specific coverages and benefit, amounts. Be sure you're covered for sickness and accidents... and be sure the waiting periods before coverage begins are reasonable.. WHAT ABOUT SURGERY? 'While it's best to include surgical cov- 'erage with your hospitalization, many!/ people own split pro-- tection—with surgery as a separate policy. This usually means double records and a higher total premium. One policy for both is therefore to your advantage. And even: more important : Check the surgical schedule to see that it covers at least 200 operations ... choose a plan that lets you select a practical benefit ceiling-$100, $200 or $300—whichever is best for you... ; and find out how many operations pay the maximum benefit. ' DON'T FORGET MAJOR ILLNESS A major illness or accident might 'damage your entire financial security. For this reason a few insurance companies have made available a new kind of health policy-Mayor Medical. Major Medical takes over when your regular hospitalization'ends ... with possible benefits up to thousands of dollars per case. Until recently, this plan was available only to certain employee groups, but can now. be,purchased by individuals and families. NATIONWIDE SURVEYED THE FIELD Some time ago, Nationwide Insurance surveyed all existing health and accident plans, including its own — and decided that something should be done to give the public more realistic protection... at less cost. The result? Four new plans that can cover all your health needs with flexible benefits, realistic protection and lower premiums. 1. THE "INVINCIBLE" PLAN A new Income Protection plan... off ers you a selection of monthly income benefits ranging from $100 to'$400 for sickness and accident disabilities. There are 8 cover- ages, including hospitalization, with varying amounts of benefits for 7 of these coverages. Select what you need and how much you .need. You pay for no unwanted extras ... and you keep your premium down to the cost of your exact insurance needs. (AH-247A) 2. THE BUSINESS t PROFESSIONAL PLAN This is an Income Protection plan to provide the longer benefit periods necessary for the business and,professional man who usually has no sick leave when disabled — while overhead expenses remain high. This plan offers lifetime benefits for total disability, with as long as five years coverage for sickness. It includes a full line of hospitalization benefits ...and the cost is surprisingly loio. (AH-248) 3. THE FAMILY HOSPITALIZATION PLAN Three coverages make up this, low cost plan: room and board .. .all hospital extras... and liberal maternity benefits (with double benefits for twins, triple for triplets). Benefits vary for each of these 3 cov- erages . -. and you can choose frora 3 additional coverages to round out your protection. Surgery is one of the optionals; if you have surgical coverage, omit it from this plan... if you don't, you can include it. Maximum surgical benefits, depending on the schedule you select, range from $100 to $300. Out of 238 listed operations, 20 pay the maximum. (AH-249A) 4. THE MAJOR MEDICAL PLAN Nationwide is one of the few insurance companies that offers you this unusual plan. It's designed to pick up where your individual or group policy ends... or above the amount you feel you yourself can afford. When covered hospital expenses go over the deductible amount selected, we pay 80% of the balance, up to $5,000 each case ..-. while your regular hospitalization plan covers the initial expenses you are asked to pay. (AH-234) HOW ABOUT THE "FINE PRINT"? Any health insurance plan will have some limitations and exclusions. These help keep your premium rates down by discouraging professional "benefit shoppers". In our plans these restrictions are quite reasonable. Our hospitalization plan is renewable at the option of the company... while we retain the right to cancel' income protection plans. We do, however," provide non-cancellable., plans for those who prefer them. Income benefits due to sickness are subject to a 30 or 15-day waiting period after the policy is effective, depending on the plan. Sickness benefits in the hospital plan are subject to a 15-day waiting period. Some sur-j gical benefits in all our policies re-! quire a 6-month waiting period from the policy date. "IN SERVICE WITH PEOPLE* That's our slogan. It means we're a "different" kind of cpm- pany — because we believe that people can achieve anything they want to by working together tvith other people. .. people should have a voice in the affairs of the company they own... and people's 'money.should be invested in activities serving their interests. Because we believe these things we assist voluntary self-help groups; give policyholders a chance to speak up through their Advisory Committees of Policyholders; and invest in businesses which directly help policyholders and the gene«al public. Because we believe that people working together can achieve any common; goal, we give our policyholders a! chance to tell us what they like or don't like about Nationwide and what they think should be changed. Annu-l ally our company-wide Policyholder Advisory Committee meets in Columbus with top management. These policyholders know that this is a : "different" kind of insurance company, truly "in service with people". If you'd like to participate in one of these meetings - or, if you're not a policyholder and think this is the kind of company for you, just... CALL YOUR NATIONWIDE REPRESENTATIVE He'll be glad to tell you about us, about our Policyholder Advisory Commit-! tee...and he'll be glad to review with you any health insurance coverages you now have-so that you can be surej you have what you actually need.!
