FUEL NEED NOT PRESSING
Scarcity of Teamsters Is Main Dif
Hculty, Says Lee Walker.
The fuel need In Columbia is not
pressing today, according to Lee
Walker, who Is temporarily in charge
of the county fuel administration In
the absence of H. A. Collier, county
fuel administrator, who has gone to
Texas to spend a week.
"The main difficulty," Mr. Walker
said today, "is that labor is scarce In
Columbia. The coal cannot be moved
from the cars fast enough. The coal
dealers need more teamsters."
Mr. Walker will go to Centralia to
morrow night to attend a meeting
of the coal dealers there.
