States, which may increase the cost ,. of operation under. government con: :trol by as much as $40,000,0)0, are - ioiag considered by Dr. Harry A. Gar- fleld, federal luel administrator, and '; John Skelton ·Williams, director ol I finance for tho railway directorate. ' '---The railroads will no longer enjoy '. the preferential rates which they · have in the past forced from the op- r :erators .in return for providing 100 : per cent empty bars to lavored oper- · atorsl The exact price which tin* , fovernrheat must pay has not been ; , determined. : '"· The question, ia addition to the /eJIect it will have on tt« railroads, .involves the entire distribution oJ steam coal. It is estimated that the I "transportation systeiis require 25 per ;cent of the entire output, and the :f»ar industries, also a preferential ;'filass, in the neighborhood of 65 per '.'cent of the remainder. 'i No decision is 10 be mado in 'the ·[matter that will not be equally advan- ihageous to both essentials. Fuel ad- ·.Vmialstration officials are fixed in ; ( their determination not to continue ..-tba old practice, of the railroads on ;*the principle that the government l^iuumot be a party to any unsuitable 1 .rarran £ezn en t ;CltU is expected that, as a result of KVhatever agreement Is reached, the '.irallroads and war industries will be ^'supplied, operators will obtain as 'ii'nearly as possible tha number of [Years that their production warrants ·;^and working conditions will be zoain- ·i tained at an equitable level i n ' all Sttelds. i:} .U was held that to allow the rail- .^.rbads to purchase at any figure too St:greatly at variance with the price jt'fiied by the Fuel Administration -would ^prevent the consummation of aay oi ^these results. jIH'The first thing that would follow igtlie granting^ of preferential rates to Sjrailroads. it was explained, would be ?:-tb incr**se the car congestion short- feage, which today shows no improve- ^ment in the.coal trade over this date V;'last y(-ar. It also would prsvent the f;'operatirs from finding their natural sKmarketii as planned under the zoning tfsystem ar.d disorganize mino labor. f^'- From the Fuel Administratipn view^point, tl\e latter contingency is the ignore seJlous. Unless all juines are |f][iven a fair share of the available £fears, pait-time \*'oriUo conditions feffijahnot bt- prevented, it was held, ·|;juid prob*.My bring on industrial un- .throughout the entire industry, the jjast -railroads and others l«r,;er industries tare been ^ ap4 from, : tile jnines there are many instances of long-time I agreements, and the cancellation of all such contracts is among the steps being considered. The prices which have been set by the Fuel Administration were all worked out on a basis of 10 per cent over the cost of production, and provide no place for contracts 50 per cent or more below that figure. The problem is considered all th* more serious hy the Fuel Administration, due to the fact that there has been no gain in the car supply. Unless this situation can be relieved, it was stated, tho American people will face the' same situation neit winter that' they did last, for there can be no decrease in the con- spread unfavorable comment in ofli- cial circles in Washington, especially j In view of the rigid and drastic super-) vision and regulation which has been maintained over the coal industry since since last August, and the extreme measures which have been meted out to ".ndividuals and companies who violated, intentionally or other-: wise, orders and regulation imposed br Dr. GarfiGld and his assistants. "Jeff" Smith, middleweight champion, now* boslnfi Instructor at Camp DIs, leaving his quarters to meet his class, hardened by 'Text Books," just received for the use of his student*. ffices Discontinued. An order has been issued by Director General of Railroads McAdoo discontinuing separate city freight' or passenger offices and ttie consolidation of 'ticket offices into union offices centrally located. Tourists and siznt 'demands of the railroads and j similar agencies and all off-line traf- fie offices also discontinued. Cornell baseball players 'will be required to furnish their own uniforms, j equipment, etc. When the varsity nine [ " Is chosen it -will be outfitted by the Athletic association. * * · George Boras feels that the fates .have been -unkind to him. Shortly after he received word that he was in --TODAY- war industries, no matter how much production may be curtailed. Tt is for this reason tha-t the Fuel Administration is hammering on its advice to buy early. "Unless the operators can definitely determine throug-h the slack months the production of which they can dispose they wll be overwhelmed with the coming of cold weather by th« requirements of all classes and face an. impossible situation. Negotiations behreen Dr. Garfield j class one in the draft, he was notified and la-embers of .the railroad control!. Ih^t he had beeu traded, to the Athletics board -may continue for several days, for Ping Bodie. The officials of the Fuel Administration are not favorably Inclined to the proposal, especially since an increase jn the price of. domestic coal now would completely upset the "Buy Coal Now" campaign which the administration has launched as a means of minimizing the possibility of another fuel shortage in household bins next winter. Information placed before Dr, Garfield is that the railroads had gone to the producers along their lines and offered new contracts at 50 cents to $1 under the prevailing government price, and promised to furnish all cars needed by those who accepted the contracts. In some instances these contracts were accepted--but on grounds that a full car supply would permit six and seven days' operation each week, thus reducing labor dissatisfaction and increasing their revenues. Adjacent mines which had not accepted these contracts had been standing idle from two to four (Jays a week for need of cars. Thus, the need of higher prices for their output has increased. In several instances complaints j were lodged by these operators with i _ Dr. Garfield, and the matter has been j «W put before the railroad control board which urged that railroads he permitted to make coal contracts without regard for the fuel administration. Dr. Garfield dissented from this view. A sinister feature in the situation is the unrest which. * is spreading among coal miners because of growing idleness Jn Jess favored mines. This aspect causing keenest anxiety with Dr. Garfield. It is authoritatively stated that if the situaUon continues in its present course, labor j troubles of serious proportions may ' spring up. Dr. Garfield has instituted a sweeping investigation into statements made to him that many railroads have · contracted for more coal than they need lor ""transportation purposes, and. ..are TOP SLEEPING BERTHS WORKED BY RELAYS Joe CnntJUon of the Minneapolis MHlnrs says he has no patience with bull plnyer.s who ktclc on being assigned to upper berths or even doubling up In them. - " W h y we used to triple In uppers," soys Joe, Someone expressed, doubt as to that and then Joe explained the "system." "We worked It by relays," he said. "Two hours in bed and two hours on watch. At the end of two hours, the man on the Inside of the berth had to get out, the man on the outsldo moved over nnrl the man who had been sitting up on watch clitnhed In." Caniillon sticks to It and defies any historian to disprove his'story. PARAMOUNT THEATRE | IS VIRTUE CLEVERER THAN VICE?
