What is remarkable, however, is (he way the recovery was achieved, particularly in the light o£ the obstacles encountered. Coal's basic problem, of course, was the mounting compelilion from oil and natural gas. What the industry had to do was fight back in a period of soaring labor and material costs Transportation expense, on an upward curve, was an especial handicap. WAGES WERE eating up about 70 per cent of coal's selling price al the mine head. The wage hikes hammered out on the anvil of bitter negotiations proved a burden in the marketplace. The industry, divided into thousands of producers, had little money for research and cooperative effort in combating its competition. Despite all these barriers, men in the business set lo work. Mergers were brought about among the'better producers and many ineflicient mines were closed down. The new combinations opened new, more highly mechanized'mines. Their larger resources provided funds for research into further technical advances and additional market uses. Coal costs were sharply cut in the new pits. In consequence labor costs relative to mine prices dropped materially, and the market price of coal was held at about 1948 levels. So you THIWK VouR wire is A B^vm-e AX.

IS'o one is sure how long (he enlarged export market will endure, or what new ravages will be done upon the industry by Ihe still energetic compclilion. But Americans who speak with pride of their country's free-wheeling spirit of enterprise cannot help but admire the dogged way in which a troubled industry has refused to yield but has instead fought to hold its place in the nation's economy. Worm May Turn PRESIDENT Woodrow Wilson once made a prophesy about our national future which has not, been fulfilled, but which may yet come true for Russia. In the early days of the automobile he was impressed by the gap between the car owners and the pedestrians, the former bumptious and fond of displaying their new possession, given to nonchalant splashing of passersby. The later he envisioned as envious of a privilege which they could not hope to enjoy. Here, he said, was the making of a class warfare which might do damage. Now practically everyone has a car. and there is no class distinction. In Russia only those with pull own automobiles, and Ihe have-nots are beginning to be resentful. A Smolensk newspaper, which, like ; everything else in Russia, operates by consent of the government, printed a IIAWORTH, England—In other parts of Yorkshire, (he sun shines warm on Ihc bultercups and the lambs doze over lunche.on on the greenest of grasslands. But you are a romanticist of tho x>ld tra- gi-passionate .school, so you Inrn away from beauty, and pilgrimage inslead to Hawortb. In this grim (own of -sleep, cob- bleslone streets and weary-faced people, there is a window which frames a scene of unalleviatcd bleakness. . 11 is a second-story window, in a gray slone parsonage. Peering through it, from the inside, you see only, ibi-s: A graveyard so crowded with massive tombstones that the coarse grass and weeds arc choked between them: and around it, a horizon wall of purple moors shrouded in darker clouds. Here, behind (lie window in a room only large enough for a cradle, chair and liny desk, the parson's daughter, Emily Bronte, wrote "\Vuthering Heights." If, at a young and impressionable age. you have read that masterpiece from a young .woman's brooding imagination and been properly chilled by it, then this trip to llaworlh may be one of Ihe mast exciting of your life. and living in a small world composed of a cemetery and 150 miles of hills, began to create here upon a rosewood desk the fierce love story. Some regard it as a literary jewel, others as soap opera clothed in jipctry—but whatever the comment on the novel itself, the remarkable imagination of the author cannot be questioned when you stroll the lonely, narrow paths Emily loved and feared, with changing mood and weather. In tho bedroom oillaworth parsonage, (here still are scribblings on the wall—notes and penciled pictures done by Emily and her sisters, Charlotte and Anne, as infants. a mailer of some importance when Emily died in Ihe parlor, of consumption, during a December storm, aged thirty. But her hook, published the year before, had not yet been appreciated. EMILY BBO.N'TE, aged 26, never having had the love of a man NEXT TO THE "nursery" is the larger bedroom of her brother, Branwell Bronte, a handsome alcoholic whose passionate ravings against life in the moors is believed to have inspired the character of Heathcliff. Directly below Ihcse rooms, down a sleep wood slaircase, is Ihc parlor of Ihe Rev. Patric Bronte. It was private, used for. thoughtful church and domestic business, and the children were never allowed to enter except "by invitation or for mailers of importance." It was considered TUB: GREAT desolale mansion of "Withering Heights" was Emily Bronte's mind elaborating on an old ancestral home called "Wilhins"—but you cannot reach il without a guide, and the people of llaworlh do not like lo visit it, as Emily did. It is a derelict house, half blown away by the winds of the moor, and its location is roughly 1,400 feet higher than the parsonage — through .scrub and marshland. Nothing much-has changed in— the nalure of llawoi th, Ihe people claim, since Ihe Bronlc sislers lived Ihcre and died Ihcre, be- Iween 1820 and 1861. Even in summer, it slill manages to be the sternest site in an otherwise beautiful and bountiful counlry- side. Charlotte Bronte wrole, "My sister Emily loved the moors- flowers brighter than Ihe rose bloomed in Ihe blackesl of the healh for her." As you look Ihrough her window, you are awed lhal such an imagination ever could have flourished here. (International Netvs Scivice) whelher the Dodgers and the Giants go lo California or not.

OKDF.US WENT mil from Democratic Majority Leader Lyn(inn Johnson that every one of President Eisenhower's 146 legislative recommendations is to receive Senate consideralion Ihis year. Senator Johnson made clear that "consideralion" did not necessarily mean approval. It was pointed out Ibal many of Ihe Elsenhower proposals would require extended committee work :in<i lhal action could not be completed before 195H. For a lime (he Scnnle wenl on a three-day week for regular sessions. This was lo give committees more time lo clean up Iheir work. But things arc slill pretty well stalled. Two important bills recently rc- p.irlcd to the Senate are to regulate election campaign contribu- linns and to amend (he lobbying i.iw. Bui almost simultaneously (lie wnid was passed along lhat there would he no aclinn on Ihcse measures Ihis year. These are congressional, not presidential reforms. THE EISENHOWER Civil Tlights bill has been tied up in Senate Judiciary CommiUcc fnr weeks, but is now emerging wilh the jury trial amendment lacked on. It might he filibustered. If it isn't, this, phis House ac- linn on a companion Civil nichls bid, may remove one important legislative roadblock and clear the way for action on federal aid-to-cducation legislation. What is most significant about the congressional record so far is that most of the measures passed are trivia. Perhaps the most important congressional action last month was the increase in interest rates on U. S. Savings bonds. All Ihis record indicates there is an obvious slall in Congress. If it is politically motivated to make the Eisenhower administration look bad, Ihis shot could backfire on the Democrats who ruiw control Congress. EVERY DELAY makes more t valid President Eisenhower's constant plea that he must have a Republican-controlled Congress. The hard-boiled and practical politicians of both parlies who oppose the Adminislralion and want to cut down ils budget have their side of this argument, too. They contend (hal the American pt-pplc don't want the Eisenhower program. And for this reason Iht^ Congress isn't going lo do anything more aboul it than is absolutely necessary. Small wonder. Ihcn. that Ihe President has been ealing box luncheons with his GOP cohorts and then inviting them to the V.'hite House for breakfast in bunches. WASHINGTON —It is pleasing to learn that the manufacturers of motor cars have decided to quit advertising how fast their products will travel. Now, if they'll kindly quit installing speedometers that register up to 120 miles per hour, I'll be grateful. The trouble, fellows', is that I am a suspicions young man. 1 don't believe any sedan on the road today will go 120 miles an hour. So Ihe temptation always is there to step down on the gas and sec how.much of a liar lhat speedometer is. I have nol yet done Ihis in my own behemoth (it is an underpowered old model, with only 275 horsepower), but some day I probably will, and wind up in jail. The speedometer with the teasing figures on Ihe righl side of the dial will be my undoing. Arthur E.

They were beginning to be afraid Ihe Poslmasler General couldn't read or least, couldn't do WHILE WE'RE on the subject of speed, I might add that I question whether today's cars are much faster than the old-limcrs. In 1921 my father bought in St. Louis' a 'maroon-colored touring car, called an Auburn Beauty Six, with a really powerful 'mo- lor. The advertisements said it delivered 65 horsepower. The Auburn Beauty's spccd- omeler only registered up to 90 miles an hour, but one afternoon I remember going out Clayton Bead and tramping down hard. Thai needle wavered over as far as it would go, and the sensation was like flying through a cloud bank. There were bumps. I look my fool off Ihe accelerator shortly and I qucslion lo this day whether I actually was traveling 90 miles an hour. I think that speedometer had a hocus- pocus adjuslment, and I hear lell lhat many a prescnl-day specd- omclcr also regislers too fast at high speeds. A little accuracy on the dashboard, gentlemen is what I want. ONE OTHER Ihing, fellows, I've given up on frying lo gel a car with running boards and' a crank for when the battery runs down.
