The Red Cross hopes to accumulate a reserve supply of comfort kits for the soldiers and sailors who will follow those already "somewhere in France," or on the seas. Some systematic and devoted women are giving all their spare time to making these comfort kits, receiving the materials from the Red Cross chapters, and doing the work at home. One Chicago lady has turned in 500 of them and this In addition to other Red Cross activities, and club work. As she attends to her own housekeeping. ·he has not a great deal of leisure, and finds it best to specialize in kits -^-so she has become an expert In making them. There Is very great need of mechanics In the ship building arm of the service. Perhaps some of our -womnn readers can be Instrumental in call- Ing the attention of- men of their families or acquaintance to this work. The following admonition appears In the Red Cross' bulletin, Issued by the Southwest division of February IS: GOOD ADVICE FROM ST. LOUIS. A Shipping Crisis. Stowed away in the bold of every vessel that clears from our Atlantic ports are boxes, bales and bundles of Red Cross supplies. The amount of space available for this precious cargo has been woefully limited by the ruthless behavior of the submarine. Should this space be further diminished or finally denied us, all of our preparations .for service, all of our plans for the relief of suffering humanity would go foe naught. 'nlps are needed to win the war, ships are needed to carry succor and sustenance to our armies over seas. We wnei build these shins with frantic haste unless we are to acknowledge the defeat of all our hopes. The president Is calling on the artisans of America to offer themselves for service 'In the ship yards where vessels In Brest numbers are building. Two hundred and fifty thousand Industrial soldiers are needed at the present moment In order to carry the plans of the Emergency , Shipping corporation to fruition. Good wages and steady employment are offered to carpenters, shipwrights and artisans of almost every trade. The enlistment of these men Is a matter of vital importance to the American Red Cross and to oil America'ns. Therefore, we are asking the assistance of chapters In spreading the knowledge of our country's needs. Men available ind fitted for this work should offer themselves at once at the state headquarters ot the national council of defense or communicate rtlrect with Edward N. Hurley, chairman. Emergency.

W.So* Co, Omlaarf. £ The work of gptting the coal inspection machinery of the Fuel Administration into working order in the dit- tferent coal producing fields is progressing satisfactorily to Charles M. Means, chief ot ine inspection division, with headquarters in Washington. In a recent interview he stated that he expects to soon have a force of 115 inspectors assigned to duty m 20 different bituminous districts, among which is the Conttellsville region, already provided with an inspections staff. It -will be the duty ot these inspectors to inspect more than 500,000,000 tons of bituminous coal produced this year. The object of the inspection system by the Fuel Administration is to insure a supply of highgrade coal for fuel to bunker ships, supplj locomotive, munition and-other essential plants of the governmeat and to see, if possible, that private consumers receive clean coal for household purposes. "One of the principal objects of the coal inspection system," said Chief Inspector Means, "is to bring tuei coal up to the standard it was m times before this country entered the war. Then the coal operators had competition, and had to sell clean coal in order to meet competition. "The abnormal demand 1 for coal last year and the government fixed prices for the product destroyed the law of supply and demand and caused a great amount of unclean coal to be marketed. The clean coal movement of the Fuel Administration is the outgrowth of the plan adopted by the National Coal Association some months ago. "Bad coal has slowed up munition and other essential government industries, and our aims will be to avoid a repetition of this in the future. "Under past labor conditions it has been practically impossible for the operators to enforce discipline. We expect that there will be a greater shortage of coal in the PUtsburg district next winter than last on account, mainly, of the lack of transportation facilities. The munition and other essential plants ot the government will require more fuel from this district next winter, and there will be little fuel available for non-essentials. "Also we expect in this district a greater labor shortage at the mines than last winter. Many of tile miners, on account of inadequate car supplies, have left the mines and engaged in other aelds ot labor. With an Increased car snpply next winter, there ·will he fewer men to load them," Shares of Corporation Mor« Widely Distributed Than in Prcyious Years.
