Nelson as sistant professor of fuel technolo gy at Pennsylvania State college He warns against too vigorou use of the poker. Shake grates n more than necessary in the morn ing and evening, and stop when the first red coals fall into the ash pit. When adding fresh fuel to th lire, he suggests that the red coal be pushed in a heap to one side (or the Iront) and the coal placed m the depression left on the othe side (or the back). This will leavi a hot spot" of red coals to ignitt the unturned gases released from the coal after firing. "Remember that humidity is aa important to comfort as tempera- lure," he said. "A room at 68 degrees Fahrenheit with the air hu- midilied can be more comfortable than the same room at 80 degree ^enheit w i t h no moisture added to the air. Keep water in the humidifier of a hot air fur nace and place containers of wate alongside radiators."

Y._Herewith is given a year end statement by Irving s. Olds, chairman of the board of directors of the United States Steel corporation; American industry today faces new problems as the United States enters the decisive phase, of the war. By their accomplishments in attaining the greatest level oJ production in the history of the world, the men and management · of America's mines, factories and transportation facilities have demonstrated the vigor and resourcefulness of our industrial system. The battle of production has been won, and we can look forward hopefully to a favorable termination of the European phase of the war in the not too distant future. ., Th ?

On the home front, there still remain for determination grave and important questions of national policy. But, having shown what can be accomplished in the war effort through unity of purpose, I believe the American people mar face the new year confident that any obstacles to our nation's future progress in victory and in the peace to follow can be successfully overcome.
