An Urgent Appeal... COAL It's the Wise, Expedient, ^Patriotic tkih( Th Former Bwt Folk* Move to Algona Burt: George Gray was calling on Burt friends last week Tuesday The Grays who left Burt and moved to St. Cloud, Fla., about four years ago, have sold out there and have returned to Kossuth to make their home. They have been spending a few days at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Edgar Ir.- lay, at Lakota. They are planning to live in Algona for the present. Now is the Time to Fill Coal Bins Here's something that sounds a little bit previous at this point, what with winter coal shovpling just about at an end. Nevertheless, Price Administrator Leon Henderson has notified Northwest War Production Board officials to carry the news to all points. It's this: Pack into your coal bins or sheds all you can of your next winter's coal supply. You'll be helping the war effort considerably by getting it in now instead of waiting for next autumn's snow flurries. "The advice to buy coal .now may develop into a now or never appeal for many coal users," Henderson said. "Transportation now is avialable to haul from the mine to the consumer's coal bins, but by fall our railroad and truck lines will be loaded to capacity hauling war shipments." Many coal dealers are cooperating with the government in this drive by offering summer prices to consumers who buy now. Your Co-operation is Requested The United States Government The Coal Consnmer's Council Algona Coal Dealers Howard Gray, acting director of Solid Fuels Coordina- tions, cautions that "the obviously complacent attitude of consumers and dealers toward storing reserve coal is making it more likely that an emergency may occur which would necessitate the allocation of coal by the United States government to protect war indusrtiesMuel supply." We advise you to "buy coal now. Store all you can'get." Rationing of coal may be ahead. Transportation facilities and mine resources must necessarily be at the disposal of defense industries. It is important NOW that you anticipate your future coal needs. It is important that you fill your bin to capacity. ;re*s All Upper B*s Momes W«»t Ad» run » second time free in The Sat- Shopper. Phone Your Order Now Don't Delay! R S. Norton & Son phone 229 Botsford Lumber Co. Phone 256 REMEMBER THE COAL-LESS MONPAY3 DURING THE LAST WORLD WAR? HELP TO AVOID THEM THIS TIME! You can do < your part by filling your coal bins to capacity this spring for your next wV«?s need*. The practice of, lower prices for auroraer and early fall deliveries baa been discontinued, so therms no advantage in waiting. Your help i» needed in many ways in these d^ya of mergfncy, and each thing you can do to clear t»e decks for vitaft war needs brings victory one step closer, We, your local coal dealers, are asking your coopewjtton In w» <«Prt ^ provide a* adeauate supply of coal tor the Algona comnwilty next winte^. and to assist in re- iSgtraniportaUon faciimes for the critical period afeead, We urge JW to W*J in estimate ofthe coal you will need, place your order now for delivery later on this spring, and then fill your bins to capacity. ^- ~ Hci Why... At the present time there are large coal stocks on hand at the head of the Great Lakes and In the Twin Cities. Railroads and coal companies have been -endeavoring to put in as large ft supply as possible before tha greater portion of transportation facilities are needed for war needs. Cgal companies are urg- tyg ( all dealers lo get their coal ?upply this spring. However, no coal dealers in the rural areas have facilities sufficient to store the full winter's supply and only if Iocs! conswners cooperate by ordering their coal now, can an adequate supply be assured this community nejrt .winter. ^ t Jf you Jjftv? tp'go wtthput coal winter, PW V«l Jwve tb> V.
