War Speakers Cu Xore Effectively Stir M«u to an Appreciation of the From The "Weetoly Courier. The earnest rivalry between the move it. The latter governmental agency accepted the gage and buckled down to clearing the traffic situation to the extent that it felt warranted in asking the Fuel Administration 1 to match the performance by producing more fuel for the railroads to haul. To'meet this situation the Fuel Administration has in turn drafted the coal and coke producers-for an intensive program of increased production for the duration of the war. At least that is the interpretation operators place on the call madi; through Warren S.. Blauvelt, director ot the coke division of the Fuel Administration, when,, at the meeting with some ot the conditions which affect the industry and efficiency of the coke workers as a class, are inclined to regard the pledge as idealistic rather than practical. They will cheerfully make a test of it and give ' concentrated attention to its inauguration, realizing that they are not (reed of any obligation to do their utmost in carrying out the plans, suggestions and orders of the Fuel Administration. The impression' is strong, especially since Trooper Scott was so enthusiasticaily received ai Uniontown, Republic and -Masontown, in his vigorous appeals to the men to "stay on the job," (hat much more can be accomplished by missionary work of this kind, in the direction of 'impressing men with their individual responsibility in winning the war, than by any other means. In furtherance of this idea arrangements are being made to have this forceful . with the operators, on -Monday, he I an a interesting speaker make a nioro Railroad Administration and'the Fuel urged both operators and workers to e^ended'toilr of the .coke region at a Administration as .to which shall [pledge themselves to "100 per cent later date.
