COAL MAN FAVORS ALL MINES OPEN Samuel Pursglove, Pitts burgh, Says Plan Would Keep Men and Shafts in Shape. By the Associated Press PITTSBURGH. September 11 —Op eration of all mines on a uniform sched ule instead of some shutting down com pletely. to permit miners to make a liv ing. is the best scheme for evolving the bituminous coal business out of its de pressed condition. Such is the opinion of Samuel Purs glove. president of the Pittsburgh Ter minal Coal Corporation, one of the • WASHINGTON’S FINEST MEN’S WEAR STORE • A NEW FALL 'sXTifia' KNOX HAT mlSri for IN-BETWEEN wear / A nonchalant, devil- ak ' mav-c3re, youthful style f hJH creation, very apropos for were #lO to SSO. right now!

Pursglove said today his proposal means that all mines would work only enough time to supply the demand, either by working a certain number of hours each day or a certain number of days each week He prefers the former project from an operating standpoint, as it would “tend to keep all mines in good operating shape, so that a larger tonnage could be produced in event of increasing demand.” For Large Selling Agency. Under his plan a large selling agency l would be established in each district to sell all coal and fix the uniform running | time for all mines in the territory. Should the activities of the agency conflict with the laws, he proposes that each district work cut a plan whereby I operators having orders for more ton nage than they could produce in the j uniform running time would take care of the surplus ccal mired by operators in their district who lack sufficient or -1 ders for their coal. I “At the present time the men who j are employed at mines which work i steadilv every day. earn more than suffi cient to live on and are able to accu mulate a surplus,” Pursglove said, “while those men who are employed at mines which operate only one or two days a week cannot earn enough to make a living.” Overdevelopment Blamed. He held overdevelopment responsible for the industry’s plight and said the condition was "brought about because a few of the large companies want to operate their mines every day regard less of what price they can sell their product for and without any considera tion as to whether the smaller com panies can survive. “As long as this condition exists there is nothing left for those operators to : do. who wish to run their mines, except to cut prices and get what business they possibly can ” 1 : LOOK FOR THE SCHWARTZ GOLD CLOCK ON SEVENTH STREET Perfect "Gem O' My Heart" (Trade Mark Registered) ENSEMBLE Both Rings for WEDDING $1 AA ENGAGEMENT BAND J_ RING The Engagement Ring is a beautiful Blue-white Perfect Dia mond. set with s:x smaller diamonds in the shank.
