CLASSIFY INDUSTRIES Blanket Certificates Will Not Be Issued for Any Industries. Washington, Feb. 4.—Far reaching priority regulations were put into ef fect tonight by the war industries board to expedite the production of war supplies. The regulations applied to all individuals, firms, associations, and corporations engaged in the pin duction of copper, iron and steel, and in the manufacture of tticir products; chemicals, cotton ducks and woollen doth amt all such other raw materials and manufactured producta as may be deemed necessary later. Priority In the production of coal and coke, or food and fuels, is not ad ministered hy the priorities committee of tlie war industries board, but comes under the fuel or food administrations. The committee, however, will consider applications for priority assistance to procure tools, equipment, or supplies for the production of these commodi ties. Divides Work. Hereafter all work Is divided Into four general classes, instead of three, as heretofore. Class A A, which must take precedence in all plants over everything else, will comprise only emergency war work of a special or urgent nature. Class A comprises all other war work, such as arms, ammu nition, destroyers, submarines, air planes, locomotives, etc., and the ma terial commodities required in their production. The third class, designated class It, will inrlude work not priina rlly designated for the prosecution of the war, but. being of public interest and essential to the national welfare. The final class, C, for which no certi ficates will be issued, will comprise all other work. • To Insure Delivery. "The classification of an order," the committee states, "simply means that It shall bo given such precedence over orders of a lower classification as may be necessary (and only such as may bo necessary) to insure delivery an the date specified In the order. It does not mean that work should cease on orders of a lower classification or that the 6rder .should be completed and de livery made in advance of,orders tak iug a lower specification if this is not necessary to effect delivery within the date specified. The one to whom a priority certificate is directed should make Ills own production plans so as to get the maximum of efficiency nut of Ills oporatlofis, making all deliveries at the times contracted for, if pos sible und where thiH is not possible, giving precedence to the orders taking the highest classification." No Blanket Certificates. Ttlanket certificates of priority will not be Issued in any ease. Certificates will apply only to specific orders for materials, commodities or work. Application for priority should tic made by the person placing tlie order in the name of the department for which tlie order is placed, but provision Is made for government contractors to make application direct if their need i« urgent. The regulations art* subscribed to by tlie secretaries of war and navy, the chairman of the shipping board, the president of the emergency fleet corporation and the chairman of tho council of national defense.

Tlie outcome in oats was also virtually unchanged, but for provisions varied from five cents decline to a rise of seven cents. Cold Hinder* Action. Although arctic conditions in Illi nois and eastward greatly rendered de livery of corn, conditions elsewhere, especially in Missouri and lows, were fairly good. As a consequence pri mary receipts taken from the whole exceeded to a material extent the cor responding total a year ago. Before tills fact was known, however, hulls had an advantage as receipts bore were disappointing, and the drift of foreign advices appeared decidedly more warlike than many traders last, week had expected. Forecasts of warmer weather counted though against any radical advance, and pre pared tlie way for slight downturns which took place during tho last half of the session.
