NATION'S COAL MUST

Oftlclals Regard Immediate Action a
JOINT CONFERENCE TODAY
Reports Show All Union Mines i1
Central Fields Are Shut Down
Washington, Nov. 18.-The govern
ment 'tepped to the front today t
force miners and operators to nego
tiate a new wage agreement and re
sume. work in' the bituminous field
before the country is in the grip o
a coal famine.
Clothed with all his war-tim
powers as fuel administrator and act
ing by direct authority of the Presi
dent's cabinet. Dr. Harry A. Garfiel
called a joint meeting of scale com
4-mittees at which he was expected t,
give formal notice that the time ha,
come to. resume mining operations 01
a normal scale.
While the joint conference was se
for this afternoon, Dr. Garfield founi
that a. full attendance could not b
obtained, so it went over until 'tomor
row. Mean whi .e word was passe
that the strie situation had reache
that point where action was regardei
by foderal authorities as absolutel;
There was no evidence, as pre
sented to the cabinet that the scal
committees, called here last week t
negotiate a new wage agreement ha
made the least headway. Reports fron
the central competitive fields, embrac
ing the States of Illinois, Indiana
Ohio and Western Pennsylvania
strongholds of the United Mine Work
era of America showed all mines shu
down and nt enough coal comini
from non-union plants in other state
to meet the normal demands.-by sev
oral millions tons. Other reports fro1
widely deparated sections brought th
same story of a rapidly vanishing Con
osupply, with indications that hundred
of industrial plants would be force<
to close shortly unless coal productioi
wa sput back at normal. In the vies
of many officials the situation wa
.critical enough to demand drastic ac
Dr. Garfield Ready
ALhough ha would not discuss th
nature of the statement he was pre
pared 'to lay before the operators an
miners, it was said on high authori
ty that Dr. Garfield was prepared t
present the situation forcibly to the
ief representatives of the mine own
c..s and mine workers. There was ni
intimation a ste what direction gov
ernmental action would take in cas,
the deadlock continued.
Steps taken by Kansas to operat
the mines under government authori
ty, and fear by both sides that other
S States would do likewise, were urge
a strong 'reason for quick settle
ment of all wage disputes.
The operators' scale committee sen
word to the miners that it was no

.Commenting upon a statement issue<
Stonight by their executive committe,
denying that the conference "is be
fin~ held up because of differences an<
in ecisions on the part of the opera

cl ared their -entire policy has beei
under consideration in' their s~eere
Fall to Resume Work.
The probable attitude of the admin
istration and the fact that the miner;
have not returned to work were sal<
to be the principal subjects whicl
hatve occupied their time. The fal

America to tell the men to return t<
