FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 103S. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE. PA. iAG13 NINE. GVERZEALOUS IMBIBING MEANS TRAGEDY, SAYS LIQUOR CONTROL BOARD si- Drinking as a "pleasant exercise" is a recognized grace but ovcrzealous imbibing of the "cup that . cheers" means only tragedy," a pamphlet issued by the State Liquor Control Board warned today. Written by Dr. Edward A. Strcck- er, professor of psychiatry in the school ol medicine, University of Pennsylvania, the pamphlet warns that alcohol is only for those pcrtons who can "take it or leave it alone." "Normal drinking is social drinking," Dr. Strcckcr wrote. "Alcohol has a social usage which is to mske reality more enjoyable. Alcohol sensibly used, well diluted with the social graces and not taken to excess tends to minimize some of the irritations, smooth oft some of the rough edges and temporal ily, at least, case some of the burdens." But he warns: "When a man begins to feel that he must habitually drink in the morning in order to recruit couinge enough to Ret through the day, then he Is In danger." Improvements Contributed To Coal's Downfall Re-enacts Slaying WASHINGTON, Mat. 11.--Technological improvements in Industry have contributed largely to the downfall of coal from Its former position of economic preeminence according to Dr. W. II. Young, economist for the National Bituminous Coal Commission. Not only improvements, but the sudden and gigantic development ol oil and gos as fuels, and water power as a source of electrical energy also have contributed, Dr. Young pointed out in a current study of the ailing industry. While Dr. Young's study related to the bituminous coal industry, Governor George H. Earlc, of Pennsylvania, has proposed that the Fedora government' take over the similarly "sick" anthracite coal industry in his State. Bituminous coal contributed more than 70 per cent of the energy in the United States in 1013, fell to 60.5 .'per cent in 1923, and in 1936 was contributing only 47.1 per cent. Dr. Young cited the following factors contributing to the downfall of coal: 1. Changes in fuel-using industries, citing the smelters as an example. Many'smelters now are using gas or oil. . 2. Improvement .in fuel burning equipment to decrease the quantity of coal required for production of energy units. In 1920 blast furnaces s required 3,420 pounds of coal per gross torTof pig iron, and in 1938 only 2,900 pounds, a quarter of a ton saving in coal. 3. Increased use of : competitive fuel and'forms of energy, particularly, oil, natural gas and hydro-electric power/'"'.' . · . ' j.~'-.'.r "_:..;." 4. Improvements in house insula*- tion against cold wea'hcr.- 5. Automatic Heat controls to adjust consumption of fuel to a fine point. · . .... ·;' . 6. Improvement of burner construction, nnd · development of more, offlclent'radiation. _ . . _ _ ~~ Price'.wars, .such.. as - those'; in the 1020s,''also .contributed to the Indus-, try's problems,' Dr.' .Young found. Average realization o£ coal compan- 'ies on fuel at the mine declined from $2.20,a ton in 1924 to $1.34 in 1933. The 1923 price was $2.68 a ton. Even in the boom year of 1929 the industry suffered a net loss of $12,' 000,000 and $50,000,000 a year during the three years after 1930. Dr. Young estimated the 1936 loss at $29,656,981. Labor costs since 1933 have increased 117 per cent per ton, he found. An all-time high in mine employment was reached in 1923 with 705,000 workers on the payrolls. In 1934, this figure had shrunk to 458,000. The peak production was reached in the war your o£ 1918 when 579,000,000 tons oJ.' coal were mined. Since then the demand has fallen stca'dily. ' Despite adverse conditions in recent years, wage agreements have been generally maintained in con- trast'to 1023 when contracts were widely abrogated during the slump of coal prices, Dr. Young found. The Federal · government is attempting to regulate prices, fixing a Theodore Dnniclson, Jr., with deputy ... guilty of matricide T Theodore Conlelson, Jr., 16-year- old Chicago youth who allegedly stabbed his mother to death with a bread knifa when she reprimanded-him for skipping school, leaves Cook county jail under guard of a deputy to re-enact tho slaying In tho kitchen of the Daniclson home. --Central Prest Missionary Society Entertained at Home Of Meyersdale Woman MEYERSDALE,.
