Herring, assured Iowa union miners will dig relief coal Saturday, awaited their reaction to his plea that they work an hour more each day during the coal shortage emergency. The governor said he has not received any word from local miners' unions yet as to whether they would heed his plea. But two mine union officials commented adversely. Albert Swalla, mine union director, said at Albia that "working more than seven hours a day is out of the question." Earl Watkins, local union leader at Pershing, said "we'll wait and see what state union leaders decide." "Just as Bad Now." K. G. Carney, Des Moines operator, said today the coal shortage "is just as bad now as it was last week" when Governor Herring obtained union approval of emergency mining on Saturday. 'In fact," he added, "it may be a little worse for reserve supplies are even more depleted and drifted roads have cut production to a considerable extent as well as interfered with deliveries." All Des Moines dealers, ne said, are from four days to more than a week behind on Iowa coal orders ami the stock of eastern coal is less. Tieup of freight by the snow is hampering 1 delivery of eastern, coal, too, he declared. Should Be Greater. "Production next S a t u r d a y , though," he said, "should be considerably greater than last for all mines have been notified they can operate and should have their pits full of miners, whereas last Saturday many mines operated at only o half to two-thirds. "It will need to be," he added, 'for calls for coal from smaller :owns are increasing as their reserve stocks are depleted." Operators in and about Des Moines established a committee today to take care of emergency coal orders and weed out duplications so that available coal distributed to those in actual need. Non-Union Mines. The governor said this morning he bought non-union mines would robably extend their daily working non-union mines produce only about 20 per cent of Iowa's coal tonnage and that this would not help a great deal, "though every little bit helps." Herring made his plea to the miners after Frank Wilson, Iowa mine president now in Washington, D. C.. twice refused to order extentlon of hours. He said first he would telegraph local unions, but later decided to mail his request. Most local unions probably will receive it today or tomorrow. Several local union leaders indicated they would make no decision until the formal plea was received. May Work Saturday. Wilson did ; however, telegraph the governor Wednesday night that emergency mining will be allowed next Saturday. He said he "considered it unfair to yourself (the governor) the Iowa miner and those citizens in need of coal to prevent freezing to only guarantee them coal produced by extra hours of labor after the full week's production is :onsumed by railroads and other commercial interests." C. T. Carney, vice president of the Coal Operators' association, immediately denied railroads and other large commercial users are favored at the mines. He said "operators in all instances are giving relief orders preference over commercial users." J. C. Pryor, Iowa emergency director, told the governor that reports from 11 counties showed the coal shortage acute. is becoming more Local Traffic School Postponed Because of Weather Conditions The school of traffic instruction, leld at the police station each Wednesday night, was postponed until Thursday night at the same time by Chief of Police Harold E.

The Osservatore Romano, how ever, asserted the pope had alread; spoken and'acted in the "grea threat" against civilization--an edi torial interpreted by informei sources as an answer to any possi ble reproach that the pontiff has no stopped the Italo-Ethiopian war. "The great threat, hithertc vague and distant, seems to be flar ing up as a devouring flame o: every good, of civilization," the Vat ican newspaper said. "There are some who still invoke His Holiness' word, as if he had no clearly pointed out the path o: righteousness made 'by law and re spect for all laws.' "There are some who say he i: absent, whereas he has not onli spoken hut acted and labored, with" out stopping, actuated neither bi egoistic aim nor by worldly scheme "There are some who want him to pronounce a condemnation when the whole world groans under tremen' dious punishment caused by its voV untary abandonment of God, of His laws of truth, justice and charity and therefore of true peace." Next Wednesday, the anniversary of his coronation, His Holiness wil attend a pontifical mass in the Sistine chapel. Opening Blacksmith Shop.
