WASHINGTON. July 2 Pve.iluem
Wilson today took h hand In nn at
tempt to eliminate th** dangers
which arc feared will con.** thru
intermingling of “patriotism and
profiteering” Th » case Immediate
ly In point la the matter of coal
The president himself, it was
learned on highest authority today,
la not satisfied that last week's “pa
thotlc'* price fixing of several hun
dred coal operators, will s .Ive the
problem of the threatened serious
coal shortage ami the matter of
mounting prices.
Asa result the prices agreed upon
were todav su*p**nd**d The matter
Is to be held In nneyanc** tiniLl the
president goes thoroly Into this
matter which has already caused
the most serious split in cabinet
ranks since the declaration of war
One plan for solution which the
administration Is considering Is
that suggested In the (’aider nil 1 In
troduced some days ago in the sen
ate. This hill, hacked wholeheart
edly b\ the federal trade commis
sion. would give the government
control of all coal immediately It
was mined. The government then
would distribute It at a cost plus
profit percentage price thru the or
dinary channels to big wholesalers.
Under the bill, to these wholesalers
the* go\ernmrnt, in effect, would
say: “Here Is your supply of coal.
The cost to you will be so much
You will he permitted a certain per
rentage of profit when you sell to
your retail customers’* The lat
ter. In turn, would be closely watch
ed to see what retail prices they
charged. Any attempt at boosting
of prices which would apply a su
perprofit anywhere along the line
would be met with refusal by the
government for such channels to
distribute any more coal.
It was suggested today that not
only coal hut nil kinds of fuel be
regulated thus under the law. There
Is also strong sentiment today to
push the hill to passage Immediate
ly the food control bill Is out of *he
way. Even those who favor the
Calder bill, however, said it would
be insufficient unless the govern
ment takes charge also of all coal
carrying cara. These men Insisted
"cars Is the answer" to the coni
and food problem. Get sufficient
coal cars properly distributed and
kept properly moving to and from
these mines, these men said, and
coal prices automatically will drop,
since sufficient coal can always be
