SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14,1918. THE itUTOH INSON NEWS. VAC ft TtTOfiR CAN SAVE Reduce Threatened Coal Short' age'Materially. TOO MUCH ENERGY WASTED Owners of Steam Plants and Fire* men Can Save 45,000,000 Tons in a Year. Washington, D. C„ Sept. 14.—Wlih the same tlegrqe or enon;y, ciUhu.tlnsm and patriotism as manifested by the •women of Iho United States during the year In savins sufficient wheat to feed all of the Allies, the owners of steam plants and the firemen can save In the next year forty-five million tons of coal, ami thereby reduce materially the threatened coal shortage, according to tho United States Hurcau of Mines, Department of the Interior. In the average steam plant, tor every hundred tons of coal burned, only flfty -Beven tons are actually used In making steam. The Bureau of Mines declares that It is entirely feasible to Increase the average efficiency of theso plants from 5" to G7 per cent, saving fifteen tons of coal out of every 100 tons used. As 300,000,000 tons of coal annually are necessary to supply all the steam plants In this country, the same work could bo done with 355,000,000 tofts, with ft saving of. about 46,000,000 tons. In the average.boiler plant, accord? ing to the' ilatcment of the bureau. 25 per cent of tho heat .of the coat burned, We :'hoal of thtrty-flvc tonB literally SfOes up the stack, This loss, *hlch the * bttfeau believes can bo greatly rodttce'd, is caused by'the admission of loo much or too little air to burn the coil properly. It takes fourteen pounds of air to burn one pound of coal &nd this can be gauged by the use of proper apparatus, which la explained by the Bureau of Mines In a pamphlet Just Issued for the benefit of the firemen. "Using just plain, ordinary Intelligence, we can - save a minimum of 45,000,000 tons In a year," said Van II. Manning, director of the bureau, yesterday. ."The methods to be used are easy and simple td understand. The saving can coma through the good will and steady honest effort of the fireman and the engineer and tho encouragement and appreciation of the owner or manager of the plant.' Thore Is no miraculous powder that, when dissolved In water and sprlngled over coal, will make It give up more heat and produce more steam. All such powders Bold under such pretenses .arc frauds. Also Ihcre are no patented devices that, when attached to the boiler, will automatically make largo j savings without the effort of the fireman or the rngineor. Many patented fuel -saving devices have elements of merit, but they must have careful, Intelligent nttent Ion to Jo good work. "When a plant uses %M to $100 worth of coal a day, erforts to save 10 per cent of It will pay. The days of low priced coals are gone, probably never to return. But whether or not It pays In dollars and cents, It Is plainly up to the fireman to save, for what he wastes may be depriving a munitions plant or Borne oilier essential war Industry of the coal needed to help win the war. "Owners of power plants, engineers and firemen may obtain complete details of how this fuel may be saved by applying to the Bureau of Mines." ACTRESS COUNTER-SPY FOR FRENCH ARMY 1 Hue.
