FORD FACTORIES TO SHUT

ing fight during the last few months
to insure a fuel supply sufficient to
keep his workers at their machines.
Mr. Ford declared be "had 'not the
remotest idea" when the plants could
be reopened. It was announced that
the average daily consumption of fuel
in the Ford plants was 3,800 tons and
although declining to state the a
mount on hand at this time, officials
said it would ha impossible to (1o more

Only a comparatively small num
ber of the employes of the- Ford
plants will be retained in service
during the shutdown, it was announc
ed. Crews sufficient to keep the
furnaces warm will be held however.
Mr. Ford's statement in pirt, fol
"The coal situation has become
impossible. For the last several
weeks we have seen a situation ap
proaching that we feared would force
us to close. We greatly regret hav
ing to take. that step.
"We wish to keep enough coal on

thousands of dollars.. At the rate we
are getting coal aow, September 16
will mark the time when -we will have
only enough coal left to keep our fur
naces and ovens warm.
"Our reserve stock by that time
will have been completely exhausted.
We therefore will close down the en
tire plant on September 16.
"Last night we wired .900. houses

we are producing 5,20@ cars a day
and we can sell 5,300 a day. We have
closed down at a time/ when we are
doing a greatef business than ever
before in our history."
Effect of the Ford shutdown will
be felt on industry in every part of
the country, according to officials
of the company. The number of
workers employed by firms supplying
the Ford company with raw materials
and various parts, including iron and
steel, was rariously estimated at from
"several hundred~ thousand to three
Announcement was made recently
that Mr. Ford had installed oil burn
ing furnaces at one of his plants as
an experiment and the hope was held
by many workmen that the Ford com
pany could weather the coal shortage.
It developed today, however, that only
the furnaces in the machine shops had
been converted into oil burners.
The Ford plants, in the aggregate
constitue Michigans' greatest indus
try, from the standpoint of employ
ment, 'and as such are among the
largest in the country. Business men
and manufacturers here were unani
mous that the closing of these plants
might have far-reaching effects on
the national economic situatioi.
PRIORITY COAL REFUSED

day refused to avert a shut down of
his automobile plants here Septem

coal users of the Northwest, it was

According to this information Mr.
Ford charges that priority coal con

Mr. Ford was quoted as saying that
"coal bootleggers" had offered to
"steal this coal" and sell it to him.
Reports emanating from West Vir
ginia thuc the Ford company. had
refused coal at normal prices was ex
plained at the Ford plants. It was
asserted that the fuel so offered was
steam coal, a product of !little use
in the Ford industry because it con-,
tains a high sulphur content. A low
sulphur coal is required for blast
furnace work. Ordinary steam coal,
it was explained, would ruin the me
tals used in the Ford plants. Only
about 30 percent. of the coal used in
the Ford factories here can be of the
steam variety, it was stated.
Despite the determination of Mr.
Ford to close' his factories here un
less he can obtain the kind of coal
he needs at normal prices, the Pe
troit industrial district took heart to
