May 22 ---A number of j coke producers report that they teave \ bi en receiving a 100 pel' cent car sup- ; ply nearly every day since the begin- i nir.g of last week. While the expori: · is not universal, codtions sen- i eralty as to car supplies .have shown ' further improvement. As car supplies j increase, labor shortage Is naturally! uncovered, but conditions on an av-! c--.age are less unsatisfactory than | was expected. The "push" ovens, are , experiencing much less difficult/ in : finding adequate supply of labor than; are the hand drawn ovens. Condi- i tions as to labor supply are even bet-j tt r tban appear on the surface, w h e n . ri-gard Is' had only to the coke icdua- j try itself, because the shipments of \ Counellsville coal are far heavier than : ever before, and this absorbs a very considerable quantity -of labor, that ' would otherwise be available a; the "oke works proper.
