S]JQcIiil to Tho Weekly uourior NEW YORK, March 6.--The Amerl- | can Metal Market and Daily Iron · Steel Report will review the steel a n d : iron trade tomorrow as follows: SteeT*sbJpment8 are increasing some- 1 what, more rapidly than a f o r t n i g h t ; ago and are now averaging close to 75 : per cent of nominal capacity, though ; with the great amount of new construction that has occurred in thu past ', two years the ratings should probably : be higher than those now taken for ; the purpose ot making comparisons. I Ingot production is outrunning fiuiah- ; ed a tee I production, as the finishing , operations are retarded by shipping · conditions and it is more convenien'.' to stock ingoLK than finished sltici. The . Increased Ingot production reflects the heavier production of pig "iron t h a t ' has lately been occurring.* Blast fur- . nace operations in the industry as a ; whole are easily at SO per cent, of ca: pachy. As a result oE the conference held : last Friday with representatives of all ' producing lines the iron antl steel . committee will probably recommend. to the War Industries Board a con- · tinuance of the present set prices to ' the end of the year. The conference ^ at whicli this matter will be discussed Is expected to be .held between the 35th and 20th otnhta month. An I n - ; teresttng feature of the situation is j that the War industries Board has a ; new chairman, Mr. Baruch. I By far tho most Interesting feature ; or the situation is the possibility that . there w i l l be a competitive market I n . some irou and steel products in the near'future. \Vhetber or no 1 ! this will j occur depends chiefly upon Iranspor- ! tation. The hjgh costs, which make U that at the set prices the producers i are earning very moderate profits in- I deed, are due in considerable part to j light production caused by insufficient i transportation. It is being pointed out j that if the government desires lower ; prices the readiest and most practical i means to that end would b« to supply ' ', transportation to the industry. It ia i I believed that with favorable weather ! } this can', be done. i I Tuere is a slight improvement in j ' demand for steel products in the open · j market, but on the whole demand is j j very light, ths .pressure being chiefly! j Cor deliveries against orders already J placed, the filling of which in .most ', cases is very long overdue. ' j IMPRESSED BY OUR FOOTBALL BATTLES Japs Take Great Interest in U. S. t Army Athletics.

' In addition to making observations i nt our camps they have visited o u r : colleges and. perhaps beyond anything j Use.they have been impressed by our i foottwll games. I One of the Japanese, a college'pro-j fessor and a 3T. M. O. A. worker, oa ! hie return to Tokyo recently deliv- : ered a lecture, In which he emphasized i the renmrtiible Index to American \ fighting spirit and character furnished . by our football battles. = For ages Japan hus prided itself on the spirit of the ancient Samaurl-- | a spirit \vLlch. H was held, 1ms tran: scended thut of uny other notion. ; Only those who are intimately fa-; mlliar with the feelings of the ,Tnpan-l eae on that subject can imagine, the 1 stir which the lecturer undoubtedly i created when he told his fellou' Nip-! ponese that "the 1 spirit of the old! Samaurl is not confined to Japan, but j is evident in every game between i American college football teams." ; "Amerlcnn football never would be; a success In Japan--It could not exist; here," the Japanese told Ills ht'arcrj, j "If any of yon think that the spirit of j old Japan Is superior to the spirit of j America you would change that impres- i slon If you were to see a hnrd-fonght name on an American college football neld." What impressed the Japanese more than anything in football was the stoicism and sportsmanship with which the players ao/iepted injury and even a "Icnockout" The Japanese have prided themselves; on their ability to take punishment' without flinching, but five miuutes o f : a football game convinced our visitor tlmt in at least that feature we stood' supreme. - * You Trust Co.

A LIMIT TO BE FIXED UPON THE AMOUNT OF COAL TO BE DELIVERED i(j Consumer Tart of Fnel Administration's Plan (or the Be- tail DistribntloB After April 1. Regulations governingvtbe retail distribution oE coal for the coal year beginning April 1, 1918, are under consideration by the Fuel Administration. The fuel administration, in order to avert a recurrence ot the coal shortage condtions of the past winter, announces that it proposes to put into eifec:" a definite plan for the proper land equitable distribution, of coal to i domestic consumers throughout the country. In so far as possible, the regulations will be made flexible in order to enable local fuel administration officials to accommodate the general rules to their local conditions. Fuel administration officials at work on the retail distribution plan are considering an 'arbitral-}- limit on the amount of coal that may be delivered to domestic consumers. It has been proposed to base this limitation upon the amount of coal that may be delivered to domestic consumers during the coal year of 1917. Mt-is probable that local, officials will ·be given the authority to require consumers purchasing coal to submit an attested statement setting ·' forth the amount of coal the consumer has on hand, amount he has ordered- from 'dealers, total amount used during tho year 1917 and thci amount necessary to meet his requirements during the coal year of 1918... It is expected that the retail distribution .plan will be definitely decided upon early* next week in order t h a t - I t may be made effective .or. April'1. A general warning has been issued by the Fuel Administration to coaV producers that where they are selling their output under . contracts made prior to the fixing .of coal prices by President TVilaon they will not bo permitted to charge thc 45 cents additional given to operators to meet increased wage costs, v in unusual them,-preseniin'g dashing.: icc'itleiits of 'romance' ia-which a young I '.'· Patronize those .who F.
