It has been our purpose to take care of needs with the supply available to us, and thus far, we have been able to supply Coal to our customers. IT IS TRUE that Stoker Coal is drastically short, here as everywhere. In some types of Stoker Coal, we have got to the bottom of the bin. We hope this situation in Stoker Coal will be alleviated soon. If short on Stoker Coal, we advise you to hand-firo your furnace with other types of Coal during the daytime, reserving your stoker coal for nights. NORTON'S IS NOT buying Coal on the "black market". We are striving to. keep our coal prices where they should be, and will not pay black market prices. We have 6 or 7 cars of Coal rolling from our legitimate sources now (one car arrived yesterday) and we will continue to serve you under the "rules of the game." IF the Coal Situation continues serious, there is something you, as a citizen, can do. Send a wire or a letter to your representatives in Congress or President Truman to do something about it.
