p f*> 'f«' i' tex, ^JHMtok j^^^^^^. ± «* t t i^^M ' Iowa People Should Burn Iowa Coal HAVE never urged the people of Iowa to buy and burn Iowa Coal soiely upon the grounds that it is produced In the stale . . . in spite of the fact that we might be justified in doing so under present economic conditions . . . with Iowa labor facing its most crucial winter in years. First of all: IOWA COAL is GOOD Coal. Every test . . . every standard of comparison has proven that IOWA COAL Is the MOST ECONOMICAL FUEL for IOWANS. On a basis of heat units IOWA COAL compares very favorably with Eastern coals selling, in some instances, for twice the price of the Iowa product. In urging Iowa people to burn IOWA COAL we are merely inviting them to make a savings of 20%, 30% and as high as 50% on their winter's fuel bill. We are inviting them to do their share in retaining within the slate at least a part of the $55,000,000.00 now being sent out of Iowa annually in payment for foreign coals, most of which never returns. And last, but not least, we are inviting Iowa people to provide the common staples of life to the thousands making Up the state's mining population, by insuring a winter's work. Everyton of IOWA COAL consumed by lowans benefits all Iowa. We corditjlly invite you to remember this fact . . . when next ordering cool. In the meantime, write for FREE booklet "More Heat Per Dollar," containing complete information on the proper storage and firing of Iowa Coal. Secretory of the Iowa Coal InillluU. WACOAL HUGH W.
