In several finished steel branches the producers have drawn up specific lists of their own, interpreting in detail the general preference list promulgated by the authorities One 'or two additions to the preference list may be made in the near future to cover 'certain special cases Thus the distribution of steel is in process of being returned to the producers The priorities come before the preference list and Class D material follows it, but these two classes trade in June, but tMpped about toother will not represent any large tons -for Julj the original JÂ» rt Â° Hther the toul production or sine-Meat W-l.SOO.OjOS tons, but R Â«" total demand No estimate has SW.- Cslloway -national coal distribu-T* 6 '-"* 811 made m * responVble quarter, ha* called- upon_the dtstrict to ter ** P 1 "** at hl K n Â« r "an 10 PÂ«r cent Ot the total demand the demand With a Class D rating, the preference list being such an extensive one while the activities not embraced in it have Â»tÂ» ot screen la now prescribed pre- three-qnarter iach.
