October 18, 1&43 CONSERVE YOCR COAL, The coal shortage in this section of the country is admittedly a cause for worry, but worrying about it is not going to help. The fuel situation throughout the nation is going to be tight and consumers had better resign themselves to cooler houses this winter. For by burning less fuel from day to day they can make the supply go further, and the situation demands just that. Many householders have their bins filled, but many do not and dealers' stock piles are virtually non-existant. When they do receive coal, the probability is they will allot it to customers who need it most. That would only be fair. But there is an over-all shortage. No one is likely to get as much coal as he wants. Some of the responsibility for the shortage rests on the shoulders of John L. Lewis and his miners who struck. Coal that wasn't mined last spring cannot be burned in American heating plants and by American war industries this winter. But the strike does not account for all of the shortage. Many younger miners have been drafted, leaving older miners who do not work so fast. And coal consumption is increasing. Industry is working at top speed turning out war goods and many new industrial plants are now operating. That means increased industrial consumption of coal. Also thousands of homes, formerly using oil heat, have been converted to coal. products, especially iron and iron ore. So Sweden took care not to give offense, even to the extent of allowing German troops to cross Swedish soil to get to northern Norway. But gradually the German prospect darkened. The British saved themselves; later America came in, and war supplies] flowed to the Allies in a mighty stream. The Russian war began to bog down for Germany, and then turned more and more against her; the Axis was driven from Africa with enormous losses, and German cities were being devastat- No Tariff on Rubber? DAVID LAWRENCE Reliable statistics show that anthracite needs are up 10?;, but production is up only two-tenths of one per cent. The demand for bituminous coal is up 5% while production lias gone up only 1.9%. Coal in stockpiles in dealers' yards is much less lhan a year ago. More coal is in the consumers' bins than usual—many people heeded the advice to fill their bins last summer—but a very small percentage of users have enough to last the winter. The situation in this part of the country and west of here, is worse than over the nation as a whole because coal that would normally have been delivered 10 midwest dealers during the summer has gone up the Great Lakes. When navigation closes, shipments will go into this territory. That is well enough; but there is the distribution problem. Coal dealers are short-handed. They don't have so many men as usual to make deliveries and when the rush comes, as it will, they will be swamped. A terrific load will be thrown upon the railroads during the winter when operating conditions are far from good. Moreover railroad equipment is showing the strain of the unusual load the war has thrown upon it. The railroads have been unable to obtain any- Ihing approaching the normal number of new cars and new locomotives. Nevertheless they have been doing a superb' job and they'll continue to do the seemingly im- ed by air with Germany powerless to prevent it. The Swedes were not yet ready to fight, but they felt safe in taking a 'firmer attitude. They shut down on the passage of German troops across their soil; and Germany took it quietly. When Denmark was taken over by Germany, with all the German tyranny and cruelty, the Swedes openly sympathized with the Danes—offering asylum -to all the Danes and persecuted Jews who could escape across the narrow strait into Sweden. Germany apparently accepts it all; for Germany does not want to take on another enemy, even a minor one. Sweden w>uld be a minor enemy, compared with the great ones, but by no means negligible. Sweden has less than seven million people, but its military power is out of proportion to its size, and the S%vedes' in former times have been among the very best fighters in Europe. In 1941. when Sweden completed an eight-year rearmament program, she had an army of 600,000 men, with armored and antiaircraft regiments and 500 war planes. In that year Sweden entered on a new five-year program 1o cost about $200,000,000 a year, to increase the number of tanks, anti-tank guns, automatic infantry weapons and army transportation. It is a fair guess that Sweden's army is much stronger now than it was in 1941, strong enough to co-operate quite effectively with the Allies at the proper time. Sweden also has large arms factories, having for years supplied other countries with some of the best modern weapons, and produces the finest iron and steel in Europe. Sweden will not enter the war until the proper time, and that will be when she is sure that Germany cannot spare the forces for an overwhelming attack upon her. The. time might come if the Allies should invade and retake Norway. Then men and supplies from Brittain could reach her across Norway and there would be no danger of Sweden being left isolated to fight a hopeless struggle. Various other events might make her entry into the war opportune. Whenever the time comes. Sweden's help will be most welcome and useful. It will come, if it does come, in the WASHINGTON, Oct 18—President Roosevelt has revealed perhaps unwittingly why the American people have had a crisis in rubber tires. He has announced his opposition to a tariff to protect the infant industry which has been trying to develop synthetic rubber. The tariff has been suggested so as to make American automobile owners ndependent of the caprice and arbitrary power of the British- Dutch rubber cartel in the East Indies'. Back in 1940; the cartel feared that America might buy too much rubber and if the war ended suddenly there would be a glut which ivould depress the price. So production was controlled. Although the American government constantly urged more and more production, it was only in the latter part of 1941, just before the attack on Pearl Harbor, that production was raised to capacity by the British- Dutch cartel. America's rubber companies have long known about synthetic rubber. Despite the smokescreen which the Roosevelt Administration has attempted to draw over the synthetic rubber problem by claiming that failure to pool patents or to make German patents available was the reason why the American people have not gotten synthetic rubber tires, the truth is that the American synthetic rubber indus- later stages of the war, and it will help to ease the task of the Allies in bringing it to a close. News Behind the News By Paul Mallon WASHINGTON. Oct. IS—The satisfactory Senate subcommittee compromise on a post-war resolu- ion evolved from an entirely dif- possible. Likewise the dealers will do their best- Thus the coal situation is alarming but not hopeless. It is up to householders to economize in every possible way. They can do a lot by keeping their houses cooler than usual this winter; most houses are overheated anyway. They can get more heat out of the coal they burn by keeping heating plants clean, watching the drafts, and not shaking the grates too much. The important thing will be to not waste coal. WHAT OF SWEDEN? News from Sweden in recent months has encouraged the hope that sooner or later the Swedes might enter the war on the side of the Allies. With the qualification "sooner or later," that hope may be well founded. Just now it probably would be suicidal for Sweden • to fight Germany for the Allies could not help her. But later that probably will not be true, and Sweden then can act in accordance with her interests—which certainly are on the side of an Allied victory. At first Sweden was "benevolently," neutral towards Germany. When the Germans were riding high, with Norway overrun. Britain in great danger, and the United States .not yet in the war, the Swedes had to play safe. They did not want to suffer the fate of Norway. That would have been their fate if they had shown hostility; for Germany not only could not tolerate an enemy at her northern door, but urgently needed Swedish ferenl one around by which was carried Foreign Relations Chairman Connally for two weeks. The text of that resolution was not made public, but it was supposed to represent what Secretary o f State Hull has in mind. Basically, i t proposed an international organization along the lines of the League of Nations, empowered to impose "economic and military sanctions" on non-conformist nations or aggressors. "Sanctions" is a word dripping with honey, but, it means the use of force. Economic sanctions would be embargos against arms, food, or other products to offenders. Military sanctions means armed invasion. This would be a League of Nations with teeth in it, using bayonets for teeth. There are men in the Senate who suspect Connally of craftily sounding out each individual senator on this proposition which has been seldom mentioned in public discussion. Mr. Hull, for instance, has only gone in his speeches as far as saying some sort of power must be used to keep the peace. The satisfactory compromise re- sblution does not follow those lines, but neither does it conflict with "them. Its careful words say only that the United States should act "through constitutional processes" to join "free and sovereign nations" in an international au- thorily "with power to prevent ag- ;ression and preserve the peace." The "constitutional processes' presumably means that whatever Roosevelt and Hull negotiate with the other nations must be confirmed by the Senate, as provided in the Constitution. Actually, it means nothing specific. The only real excuse for passing such a generalized resolution is that the Administration wanted something on record from Congress to prove to the British, Russians, and other nations, that Congress this time would not be isolationist as the Senate was -after the last war. As Republicans and Democrats are joining in its broad statement, it may serve that purpose. But it does not assure Senate approval of any detailed post-war peace program henceforth. The last post-war Senate overwhelmingly favored a league, but broke up orer details of its authority. The greatest issue was the try was repeatedly discouraged by the American government itself. Industry was afraid to risk its capital because, of the possibility that no tariff protection would be granted after the war and hence the proposal was advanced persis tently that the American govern ment should furnish the money to build the plants. This was no' done promptly. The synthetic rubber experts say that they cannot produce for les than fifteen cents a pound, though there are some processes which might be made for as little as six cents if quantity orders could b assured. But how can that be pos sible if the American governmen refuses to give tariff protection o any kind to the synthetic industry as it struggles to get a market There is certainly no justification for a permanent subsidy or per manent tariff, but it would appea wise to assure the new industry protection for at least a three o five-year, period while processe were being developed so as to ge the price down to somewhere nea the price of the British--Dutch cartel. If President Roosevelt feels tha there must be no tariff at all, hi position must also inevitably be that the British-Dutch cartel shoul agree for a period of at least five to ten years to fix the price o rubber at not more than ten cent a pound. Unless some fixed price is assured, the American peopl will find their synthetic rubber in dustry abandoned after the wa and the British-Dutch cartel man agers will have the American tir user at their mercy ever after ward. use of economic and military sanctions. ^Distributed by King Features Syndicate.

Oct. 18 (/P.I—Bitter fighting continued today along a wide front in Yugoslavia, with the Yugoslav National 'Army of Liberation reporting new successes against German communication lines while acknowledging the loss of Zenica in central Bosnia. Troops retreating from Zenica in the "Balkan Ruhr," a commun- iqufi said, destroyed the Bilo railway station, derailed a train near Lasva, blew up a railway bridge and ripped up nearly two miles of track to slow the German advance. The communique, broadcast by the Free Yugoslavia radio, reported hard fighting near the Adriatic port of Split, where repeated attacks by Marshal Erwin Rommel's Nazi forces were said to have been thrown back: The Partisans announced the defeat of an enemy column near Emotski in Bosnia and the occupation of the village of Student, while local fighting was reported around Sinj, Sibenik. Bakar, Kar- lovac and Gospic, all centers of recent activity. Attacks were continued on mail railways in Slovenia. Yesterday's Yugoslav broadcast, summing up the situation, said that Gen. Josip (Tito) Broz's forces now commanded all of the Croatian coastal region and the northern coast of Dalmatia except Zara and Sibenik. Fierce struggles with the Germans during the past week were reported to have occurred in various other parts of Bosnia and Montenegro, and near Trieste and Fiume in northern Italy.

Portuguese India Oct. 18 (.T)—American and Japanese nationals hung over the rails of th exchange ships Teia Maru and Gripsholm today impatiently await ing their transfer, but it did no seem likely the exchange wouli take place before tomorrow. The Japanese have not yet com pletcd their berth assignments. Th Americans are read}' to move fron the Japanese ship Teia Maru to th Swedish Gripsholm, which will tak< them home, but there was nothing for them to do but wait. A hundred Japanese of the 1.500 on the Gripsholm visited the Teia Maru yesterday afternoon to inspect the quarters they are to occupy and to work out assignments. Those aboard the Teia Maru 1.500 United States. Canadian and Latin American nationals—were permitted ashore for a few minutes while being registered and assigned berths on the Gripsholm. Huge cranes worked steadily shifting baggage and Red Cross -upplies between the two vessels, drawn up end to end in this tiny harbor. The Gripsholm was brought into her dock Saturday, the Teia Maru the day before. From a Chilean newspaperman returning aboard the Teia Maru came the first statement yesterday bearing on conditions within Japan. This correspondent, not a repatriate since his country is not at war with Japan, said high Japanese officials appear to expect that Germany will collapse but declare the war will continue for five years after that. The official Japanese position, the correspondent added, is that a German collapse would not affect the Japanese greatly since Japan is prepared to stand alone. From outward appearances the Japanese people still are convinced they will win the war, he said. One of the Japanese aboard the Gripsholm said lie regretted the war had compelled him to leave America, but added philosophically that "there is nothing for me to do in American so it is belter to return home." All the Japanese interviewed said they were well treated aboard ship, that food was adequate but that their own money supply was not ufficient to keep them in drinks. One said they were allowed to bring $300 from America. Some from South American countries had less. LANSING, Oct. 18 UP)—Mich, igan's 1944 food production quotas and recommendations on price policies and other aids for meeting these goals are slated for discussion at a three-day meeting of representatives of Michigan's County Farm War Boards, which opens here today. According to Maurice A. Doan, Slate Farm War Board chairman, the federal government has decided lo turn the task of determining crop and livestock goals over to the states themselves, instead of determining the quotas itself, as has been done in previous years. Doan said the farm representatives also would offer recommendations on production aids, including incentive prices, labor, machinery, fertilizer and feed which will be needed to meet the scheduled. Other problems to be considered at the meeting will be ways of balancing abnormally large livestock numbers to available feed supplies, and maintaining or increasing dairy production in the state. The first portion of the progranr Doan said, is to be devoted to hearing statements of the nations' agricultural needs from official spokesmen, including Guy Smith, Iowa farmer and assistant director of the north central region pi the Agricultural Adjustment Agency. The rest of the conference will be devoted to committee sessions where recommendations as to acreage and numbers farmers might achieve and the help Ihey will need to do so, will be formulated. According to war food administration spokesmen, the WFA has set national objectives of breaking the record of total food production Cor the eighth year in a row. Total food production this year is exceeding last year's peak output by five per cent. WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 UP)— Civilian food supplies may be somewhat smaller next year, the Bureau of Agricultural Economics reported today, although production probably will equal or exceed this years record prospects. Analyzing producing goals set recently by the War Food Administration, the bureau said there should continue to be an abundant supply of cereals, and as large a per capita supply as this year of chickens, eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables, polatoes, dried beans and peas. Shorter allowances of meats and dairy products are predicted, while supplies of foodstuffs and oils as a group are expected to be maintained at the ration levels of recent months. There probably will be smaller civilian supplies of canned fruits and vegetables in the first half of 1944. but in the second half the supply may be larger than in the corresponding period this year.

The net, effect of smaller civilian supplies of meat and dairy products in 1944 probably will meet a diet slightly lower in calories, protein and calcium. However, because of higher levels of enrichment of bread and flour, the diet may contain more iron and the B vitamins. The bureau estimated total food production this year to be five" per cent above last year and 32 per cent above the 1935-39 average. LONDON, Oct. 18 W)—The ton- don Daily. Mail, taking another pot shot at "the five talking American senators," declared today that their report "has created so much anti-British feeling in America and, oy repercussion, so much anti-American feeling in Britain that it is essential the truth of lend-lease be known." Denying that Britain was taking credit for lend-lease material received from America and transferred to other governments, the Daily Mail said the senators were "ignorant of the facts" and added that "it is worthwhile pointing out that America herself has gained a good deal of credit for material supplied by Britain." "In November, 1942," the paper continued, "it was essential to supply milk to mothers and children in North Africa. That milk was distributed by the American Red Cross. So far as the Moroccans and Algerians know it came from America, as it certainly came at the demand of American authorities. "But it came from our own stocks at a time \vhen it could ill be spared." The Daily Mail devoted three columns to explaining that lend- lease was "never intended to be a one-way affair" and itemized many things which it said Britain "has given America without payment." Between June, 1942, and April, 1943, the United Kingdom provided to American forces 1,362,681 ship tons of articles and equipment and 1,177,384 ship tons of constructive materials," the article declared on the basis of figures it said had been compiled by British and American sources. IE 5 PCI. LANSING f Oct. 18 <JP> — Food costs declined less than 5 per cent in September, the State Department of Labor and Industry reported today, interrupting an unbroken rise which it has recorded since it undertook cost of living surveys in September, 1941, bui the average price still was 9 to V. per cent greater than a year ago The survey covered the perioc since June, and the department emphasized other living costs such as fuel, clothing and shelter were not included. In every city embraced by the survey the story was pretty much the same—sharp declines in the price of fresh fruits and vegetables and smaller reductions in cost 01 meat, dairy products, sugar anc sweets more than offset higher cost of eggs, cereal and bakerv products, canned fruits and vegetables, beverages, fats and oils. The drop in prices of fresh fruits and vegetables was largely seasonal, the department reported, anc the reduced prices still were IS to 50 per cent higher than a year ago. In Saginaw and Bay City the price of eggs shot up 27 per.cent since June, the report showed, the biggest per cent of rise in any foodstuff in the cities surveyed. A 25.9 per cent drop in cost of fresh fruits and vegetables in Marquette was the greatest price decline noted. Taking an index number of 100 as repreentative of the price of all foods in those cities in September, 1941, the averages stood as of September, 1943, at 133.9 in Flint; 129.8 in Grand Rapids; 135.2 in WRGflTH'S flGGNCY 575 So MfllN ST, T6L.348 flDRIflN.MICH You obtain it here.

British Press Takes Another Pot Shot At "5 Talking American Senators' "The contribution has ranged from barbed wire to cooking stoves; from bombs to locomotives; from Nissen huts to parachutes; from Spitfires to -lemon squash; from artillery to socks." The Daily Mail concluded this phase of its review with the remark that it was realized all tha time that "it was not love of Britain but the stark realization of the possibility of total war engulfing the United States that promoted passage of the Lend-Lease Act." The article "then went on to say that Britain not only is repaying and will continue to repay America but is doing her bit of lend-leasing. "Britain has sent on a mutual aid basis as many tanks and airplanes to Russia as have gone from the United States, and we have sent to the U.S.S.R. about one- quarter of the amount of other supplies that America has shipped," it said. The comments of the American Senators aroused the London Press as few other issues since the outbreak of the war, and brought from. Sunday Dispatch columnist Dorothy Crisp this scorching remark: "Within living memory, her (America's) foreign policy has been a series of excursions in opportunism bent not on the creation of a sounder future but on taking a present line of least resistance and apparent material gain." The Sunday Graphic's New York correspondent cabled that while the five senators "were not bitter and emphatically not advocating a return to isolationism," their comments had "handed ammunition to the isolationists on a platter."
