Coal Should Be Bought
and Stored Now
Unbiased Authorities Forecast a Shortage
and a Higher Price
"The Black diamond" one of the most reliable of all of the coal trade papers. In the
Issue of June 7, 1919, states in part as follows:
The nation faces an inevitable scarcityof coal and higher prices this fall. Very likely
the coal shortage will develop into the seriousness of an old-fashioned famine. No less
an authority than Dr. Harry A. Garfield, the U. S. Fuel Administrator, stands sponsor for
statement. Other Government bureau chiefs agree with him.
The Geolocrieal Sorvey?T'nclc Sam's iMattatlelan?predict* a ifriouR shortage brrnnse.
It aaya. the nation already Is short 48,000,000 tons In comparison with the preceding cal
The Department of Labor, through Secretary Wilson and Director Babson of the In
formation and Kdneatlon Service, says coal Is fcoln* to be scarce because labor will be scarce.
The Admlnlstrntlon of Ballroads. through Director General Hlnes, seen an impending
danger becaase ears In which to haul coal will not be available.
The statements made by the above officials are unquestionably true and correct. The
public must realise that they must take advantage of the present supplies of coal and
store their winter supply prior to the demand that wijl be made upon the mines,
mine labor and transportation facilities in the fall.
Last year because of war necessities, coal was given a preference, but today a dif
ferent situation exists. Embargoes have Keen lifted and many industries which have
been denied coal for the past two years are preparing on a huge scale to fill a long
unsatisfied want of the public. The starting up of these Industries means transportation,
and with coal not having any preference, it means that coal must take Its chance. Coal
can be hauled now. In the summer months, but coal will have no preference when the
rails are crowded with other produce.

ONLY 3110 MORE MEDAL
MEN HAVE REGIS11RED
Not more than 300 returned soldiers,
sailors and marines have registered at
the National Guard Armory, 472 L<
street, since Monday to receive the
medal of honor which the District is
to present on July 4 to its men and
women who were In the military serv
ice during: the war.
When the four registration booths
closed lust Saturday nigrht approxi
mately 8.000 had enrolled. The com
mittee in charge of the medals had
estimated that there were nearly 19.
000 men and women entitled to re
ceive the medals, and for the benefit
of those who had not registered it
was decided to keep the armory open
all this week.
Registration since Monday has been
slow, however, and, unless it picks
up in the next few daya, indications
are that many of thoae entitled to the
medals will not get them.
The committee believes that there
are still hundreds of Washington men
who have not returned from camps,
and is urging the relatives of these
men to write for a medal to Capt. E.
H. Grove. Room 12. District building.
Relatives of men who died 111 the
service also will be awarded medals
j upon written application to Capt.
Grove. The medals will be awarded
with impressive ceremony at the
Washington Monument on the morn

HOW WOMAN WORKERS
GET AROUNDTHE M. P.'S
Take Officers to Dances in Fords
When Forbidden Bides in
BY JUNIUS B. WOOD.
Special Cable to The Star aad the
Chicago Dally News. Copyright, 1919.
COBLENZ, Germany. June 18 (de
layed).?When a Ford breezes around
a bend In the road with a general
or some other ranking officer in the
front seat beside the chauffeur and
two giggling young women in the
rear seat there is reaaon for it. The
reason is not the lack of high power
ed limousines among officers of high
er rank than major who are accuB
tomed to riding in them, but the
young women. When the military
police started enforcing the order of
Brig. Gen. Malln Craig, chief of staff
of the 3d Army, forbidding women
riding in Army cars without special
permits it seemed that the fair mem
bers of the expedition were out of
luck. For several nights the cars of
various young aviators and gray
haired higher officers usually occupied
in carrying Y. M. C. A. entertainers,
Red Cross workers, telephone oper
ators and other charmers to dances,
officers' club parties and moonlight
rambles were empty and the women
But Problem Is Solved.
Then Mahomet-like came the solu
tion. Because women must not ride
in Army cars there was no reason
why they should not ride in women's
cars. That is why so many high
ranking officers are riding in Fords
these evenings. When an officer in
vites a young woman to dinner at
Wiesbaden, Cologne or some other
neighborhood resort these days, the
dinner is contingent upon either the
girls furnishing the transportation or
going by train. Therefore, Y. M. C.
A. and Red Cross Jitneys are much In
demand, while the unlucky Army
nurses and telephone operators wear
out shoe leather. All is a. part of the
Army game and every one takes It
?'What's the difference?" said an offl
?4r jokingly. "Many officers who are
tolling back in Army limousines today
wttl be hanging to strapa or cranking
their own jitneys two months hence."
Turbulent Days for Workers.
These are turbulent days for the
woman welfare workers. Besides being
barred from the Army cars another or
der In Coblenz forbids their entertaining
officers and enlisted men in their blllats
after 10:30 In the evening. That was
sufficiently harsh, in the opinion of the
Independent young women, but it was
worse when several oversealous M. P.'s
interpreted that it meant that they
must not be seen on the streets accom
panied by officers or men after that
hour, and started stopping and question
ing those escorting women home from
dances and entertainments.
"It is an outrage for which American
womanhood Is going to demand an ex
planation," declared oae young woman.
"Tou must think we are living In the
darkest days of Turkey."
The embarrassed M. P. to whom she
was talking explained on the following
day that the order was misunderstood.
Gentle Hint la Heeded.
Reports published that the Y. M. C. A.
entertainers were devoting most of their
time to officers evoked a gentle hint
from the organization headquarters to
take more notice of enlisted men. The
result is that a woman in the Y. M. C. A
uniform has a cheerful smile for every
soldier she meets. The casual observer
In Coblenz sees as many enlisted men
as officers strolling with Y. M C A
workers or chatting on the shady banks
? Rhine. The work of the women
attached to the divisions is untiring.
Some of them are known by name to
.ivery m*" ln th? regiments to
which they are attached, and are con
