GREAT SAVINGS IN FUEL Are Being Affected Where the Hun-'' flic tu re of Power HÂ»Â» Been Central- bed; us JInch as 50% is Estimate Among the English. JJsars of Power. ''The next- step in the program o: the national-, food administration foi the reduction ol. coal burning is the construction of central power planis --or gas plants, if more feasible--foi heating and operating factories and industries, office buildings and keeping residences warm," is the state: meat of Charles. E. Stuart, chief of.tl conservation'division of the.Fuel Administration. '.'Extension of the service of large plants, witlÂ». the .suspension' of small, isolated plants,"- he .said, "would! achieve considerable fuel saving. "The Fuel Administrauon," he continued, considers the central power, Piant method, especiany as has been ^^n^rry aboutTM^ other : developed in New T.ork and Chicago, heaithv skin by ^g a litt!e Kmo to.be the most satisfactory, method of obtained at any. drug store for 35c, or : saring coal. ...' 'extra large.bottle at $1.00.. "The individualistic way ..in. which ' Zemo perierally removes pimples. Hack- fuel is now consumed in cities is'not heads, 'blotches, eczema, and ringworm efficient," he hazarded.

Professor RauseEberger, who has been credited with' ^having.. invented heavy-gun section of the Krupp works Ized burning can be introduced to a greater extent the amount of fuel may be. largely reduced without reducing in any -way the ultimate production of light and power. Â· . "It may be generally stated that in a building Â· where electric plants are fceited and where exhaust steam from engines is utilized' itt,,the" heating oÂ£ the building, furnishing hot water requirements and possibly providing a Â·very small amount of steam for industrial and other processes, such a building can -readily; 1 ' ado'p't central station;- service . without a loss .of money and at .a large percentage of sating; the fnej. ...' . -, Tit is the Idiitjr of the Fuel Administration to devise means for securing a curtailment in the .use of '-fuel: in .ways which.-will infpbse a .minimum of hardship. If Is'believed.that there are many plants, not only in. New To**, bat throughout tbo entire country, which coold, at least temporarily, shot down their own electrical .machinery and purchase power from - otliers at a financial advantage to both parties and with a considerable sring in fuel, . 'TTne whole question comes to this point: ; There .is'^ust-so much fnel to govrouad. "Hlere" is just so much transportation equipment to convey this fuel,, and .again,.as stated above, the question is tie best seans of utilizing the fuel with respect to all there has been under con- n the qneetkm of curtailment, of certain classes of industry. Such a curtailment baa been effected in other countries at war, one of the prime objects having iÂ«en tV saving of coal. "England estimates that one-half of the fuel now used in the manufactur- ing.of power in that country could be. saved were complete centralization of power eflected. Â·^At this point another very important question, that of the release of 4he.operatives ol the'plants, present itself. In those cases 'where'small . electric plants are closed down entirely .there will-be a larger number of men available 'than in.cases where a partial closing down is brought about. In any event these skilled- men are 1 vitally needed in .many of the war in- dnitries at thÂ£ country, and provision fe now being made whereby men of such training will be assisted in ob- taialng profitable- work suitable to their ability."
