Flack started the Cubs In the right

wll be compelled to close Its doors at

will announce within a fetv days the
date when this order becomes effective.,
Simultaneously. Mr. Lewis announced
that street peddlers and corner-store
dealers in coal who, he said, have been
reaping a rich harvest from the poor
in the past by charging exorbitant prices
for fuel, will be allowefl to operate after
October IS onlj- under Federal license:
Their prices wilt be strictly regulated,
Tho fuel administrator denied that
retail coal dealers generally had boost

Government. "If there has been a sin

he dec'ared. "I do not, however, be

Iteductlon of coal orders by order of
the fuel administiation has resulted In
a saving thus far ot 200,000 tons, said
Mr. Lewis. This was effected by striking
an average of the coal consumed by a
block of houses and eliminating waste
