CUT IN COAL
Federal Trade Commission Is
Ready to Make Price
Scale on Short Notice.
Washington, Aug. 10. Sharp re
duction of coal costs was predicted by
officials tonight, as a result of the
eiiate'i passage of the Food Control
BflL nrrying a provision for Govern
ment fixing of fuel prices.
The Federal Trade Commission,
-which the measure authorizes the
Presideut to designate as an agency
to enforce the provision, is ready to
make out a price scale at short no
tice. Fox months the commission has
gathered facts as to production costs
and rib a recent report to Congress
pointed c ut that prices are too high.
Bituminous prices to the general
public were fixed at $3 in a recent
agreement between producers, mem
bers of the commission and other
Government officials. This price was
a hold until a final price was deter
auned on. Investigation has con.
ronced n?mbers of the commission
that (hh price is too high and that
ptnl cui be sold at a mu;h lower fig
ure and still lef.ve a handsome profit
for the producer.
president Wilson probably will is
sue an executive order at the time he
signs the bill, authorizing the com
jjuission to proceed with price-fixir.g.
