There were hot lunches yesterday for (he 50 pupils at the elementary school. Two trucks distributed milk, eggs, frmt and fresh vegetables to the 50 shacks where most of Shallmar's 200 people have been on the edge of- starvation for weeks. But Wolf Den Coal Mine, the hamlet's only industry still \ias shut down, as it has been since last March 31. The owner has hopes of reopening it, but no immediate prospects. Relief supplies came In by the (ruckload yesterday from neighbor- ing communities in western Maryland and nearby West Virginia. There were shipments from Cumberland. Md., and from Piedmon, W. Va. The trucks dumped their clothing and groceries at the three-room schoolhousc. Principle J. Paul An- drlck and Albert Males, chairman of the United Mine Workers' Local Relief Committee, supervised distribution. Andrick estimated there is enough on hand so the gaunt coal miners and their ramilies will have square meals for two or three weeks now.
