The men were in fine shape and ap
peared eager for the outing aaxd in
struction. This is a brigade eneajnp
ment, the first held in the state, .and
strict military discipline is to Jpe
maintained at every step. Col. J.-

camp on Friday, and will be there
until the men and officers entrain
for home.

SOFT COAL OUTPUT LOW.
Production Last Week Next Small
est in Five Years.
Production of soft coal in the
United Stales is now running close
to the low record. During the week
ending July 5, the geological survey
announced today, the output was
3.755,000 net tons, or less than in any
corresponding week for five years,
with the exception of 1922, when the
coal miners' strike held up operations
in all but tho non-union mining areas.
The week’s output was 1,616,000 tons
less than that of the previous week
this year, hut the low point marked
a decline which has been in progress
since April 1.
During normal periods the United
States produces around 10,000,000 tons
of soft coal a week, and the output
has even run above 12,000,000 tons.
Anthracite production, though also
cut down, is maintaining a more
nearly normal output, the survey re
port said, but to date is running at
about 11 per cent below 1923 output
for the first half of the year.

Proved Diesel Type of Slow Speed
to Be Used by U. S.
The committee of the Shipping I
Board on Diesel engines has recom
mended adoption of proved types of
slow-speed. direct-connected engines I
for installation In the twelve single- j
screw freighters selected for initial |
conversion under the Diesel motor j
program. The board has. $25,000,000
for the purpose and hopes to convert
about sixty cargo vessels into motor
fbips.

She conversion program be governed i
Vo a careful choice of standard and
tried types, the Diesel committee

double-action internal combustion i
engine, which is declared to be the j
more modern and capable of speedier i
propulsion. Specifications are now
being drawn for the first twelve con
versions and contracts, o a which all j
