Seven large coal companies with 126 similar corporations of lesser quan tity and about ICB.OOO miners, com prise the two principal elements In the anthracite controversy on the eve of a threatened disastrous strike. Os the nine demands formulated by the miners, negotiations for adjust ment are expected on only one of them. Schedule 5, which calls for an advance of 20 per cent on the present rate of wages, will be the pivotal point around which ultimate peace will return. It is not possible to give the exact amount the miners’ demands would add to the companies’ payrolls. The minimum wage scale mentioned in demand six is now a variable quan tity, depending on the company and character or work. Demand four has object the abolition of.the conciliation board, a council created by the anthracite strike commission in 19ft2. It will not be imi>ortant. Demand six will be waived by the men on a general percentage increase over the rates now paid for this class of work. The first demand, fixing the term of the contemplated agreement, will not he significant and may be elim inated. The third demand, having for Its object the check off system whereby the union dues are stopped from the pay of the members at the mine will not be tolerated bv the companies. On this point they are positive. On the other hand, it is an important schedule for the men. as is the de mand for an Increase in pay. The controversy will be fought on the 20 per cent raise In rates now paid and the recognition of the union. The union officials Insist that recog nition of the union will be one of the i oncesslons of the companies. This would mean a practically “closed shop,” and be a powerful weapon in times of further disputes. Regardless of how the officials feel toward this demand, a thorough can vass among the men themselves by a United Press correspondent reveals the impression that the rank and file of the employes wMll not hold out for a strike on this question. From a close investigation among the miners the conclusion follows that upon a referendum vote, the men will go back to work for a 10 per cent in crease. Anything less than this, how ever, will find them stubborn and de termined.

THE DETROIT TIMES: THURSDAY. MARCH 28, 1912. 1 DR. WILEY PLEADS FOR EFFICIENCY | AND PALATABILITY IN DIET The Cheapest Dist Consists of Cereals, But Man’s Such An Omni vorous Animal He Wants a Taste of Everything Good. UY DH. HAItVEY YV. WILEY. Chief Chemist, U. S. Department of Agriculture, and America’s Great est Food Expert. There are two points In regard to the diet .In healtjh_ which should al ways be kept In view whether otw-fre nch or poor. One Is efficiency of nu trition and the other palatability. These are two things which are most important from the mere point of nu trition. A food should be of a char acter to nourish the body and at the same time do it efficiently. Efficiency also indicates economy. Terrapin Is probably as nutritious as turkey but it would be poor econ omy, resulting In poor efficiency, to recommend the general use of ter rapin. As has already been indicat ed, the greatest economy in food Is founu in that diet which consists chief ly of cereals, but man. being by na ture an omniverous animal, at least this Is the opinion of the great major ity of Investigators, cannot have his dietetic activities confined to one class of substances as this would not be in harmony with the principles of gen eral nutrition. - Wheat for instance is an Efficient and economic diet and to a certain extent palatable, but If one were fed w'heai alone, although he would not need any, additional nutritive ele ments, he certainly would get tired of his diet. On the other hand it Is well known that certain kinds of game, such as quail, cannot be eaten a great rnauy days in succession without produc ing an apparent distaste therefor. Hence palatability is of as great im portance as economy and efficiency of nutrition. I have pointed out in a previous article how impossible it is to give a general rule for dieting in case of disturbance of health. It is equally as difficult to lay down hard and fast rule in case of health. As far as pos sible the individual should be allow ed the widest choice of his foods. Any food that is wholesome and fresh, or well cured and clean, is not foreign to the diet of man. W Ithout referring anv further to the balanc ing of the diet, which has already been discussed, it may be stated tliar man’s natural taste when he has a variety of foods to choose from usual ly leads him to a proper selection of his nutriment. Except in a few cases the man who has good meat, good vegetables, butter, milk, game, bread, cheese, eggs and other articles spread of honor and gave a talk on the ob jects of the league.

Palatability has much to do with digestion because the palatable foods are those which best excite the secre tions of the digestive ferments and thus favor dissolution and absorption of the food materials. At the same time science and experience should not be without effect in modifying the diot of mere choice and In tills way one will learn perhaps to eat less meat and more vegetables than other wise would be the case. Meat, being a quickly digested sub stance and extremely palatable, when properly prepared, would naturally form a large part of the diet to the exclusion of materials more slowly digested and less palatable, but sci ence and experience have shown that by combining these- two classes of foodc in proper propbrtion the avail ability and palatability of both are in creased.

GOMPERS TRYING TO AVERT COAL STRIKE —WABHlNf»T<rr<rr~ Myrrh - Uresi dent Qompera, of the American Feder ation of Labor, today gave the first intimation that the federation would support the members of the United Mine Workers if h coal strike is called next week. He also said The federa tion is aiding in the negotiations for amicable settlement of the threatene! labor war. In a statement issued to day Gompers said: "The federation is doing all in Its power to avert a strike of the coal miners, and 1 am hopeful that an amicable settlement can be reached. "But if trouble cannot be avoided I feel quite sure that the minora wttt have the support of organized labor. I hope and believe the operators will continue negotiations with the minets and go the limit in attempting an hon or. ible agreement mutually satisfac tory. "I will not say just what the federn- Jion is doing in assisting peaceful settlement, as I do not want to get into the limelight in this threatened trouble, but we will stand by any workmen who are honestly and earn estly striving for better wages and working renditions." The labor leader refused to say whether a "Strike fund.” is available in the event of a walkout. He also declined to state if offers of financial aid in the event of a strike bad been secretly made the United Mine Work ers. But l.ls statement, was regarded here as emphatically indicating th* position of tiio federation in the event of trouble.
