PAGE TWO VnXK (AKK.) COURIER NEWS , JANUARY 18, 1980 House Member Wants T-H Used Illinois Republican Voices Concern Over Shortage of Coal WASHINGTON, Jan. 13-Mt— Rep. Church (R-I11) yesterday told She House "the coal shortage situation confronting us today is as grave and critical" as any emergency in which the Tail-Hartley !««• has been used. Church introduced a resolution calling on president Truman to use the Taft-Hartley machinery In the coal dispute. K was identical with a resolution sponsored in the Senate Wednesday by Sen. Ferguson (E-Mich) and five other senators. The House move came as southern coal operators released figures to show that the nation's soft coal stocks, under the impact of John L. Lewis' three-day work week and sporadic strikes, has dropped to a record low of 23.000,000 tons. That figures out at about 15 days' supply. The operators argued this proves the existence of an emergency. That is an element necessary if the go', emment Is lo use Taft-Hartley injunctions. Joseph E. Moody, president of the Southern Coal Producers Association used figures of the Bureau of Mines as the basis for an estimate that the nation's stores of coal above ground went down 10,000.000 tons in December from 45,264,000 tons, or thirty days' supply, on November 30. He figured there was another 10,500,000 tons loss in the first two weeks of January. Moody said "another strike by Mr. Lewis will send us right through the bottom" of the supply.
