Coal pro duction in the United States -reduced by 75 per cent when miners in union ized fields walked -out ApfiFi; is now showing a slight increase, it was re ported today by the geological sur vey. Nonunion fields, where opera tions are continuing, produced 10,720 carltoads Monday, April 10, and forged slowly ahead each succeeding day un itil Thursday, April 13, the last day recorded, when the output -was 11,480 cars. J On the last full week for which the survey's reports account, that ending April 8, the total bituminous output was 3,784,000 tons. Comparing con ditions to those encountered during the last great suspension in the in dustrythe strike of 1910 the sur vey remarked that during the first week of that strike production was only 3,582,000 tons of bituminous. "Existing demand is not able to call out full production in those districts remaining at work," the survey .con cluded. "From mines in many non union fields, reports of no market and dull demand continue to be received. The number of cars loaded at the mines but unconsigned- to consumers was very large when the strike began, and latest reports -from railroads show that it is increasing rather than decreasing."

B. C of Nutrition Xo. 1. Can it be that people of this nation aie actually suffering from lack of food? There arc some disagreeable sta tistics in circulation concerning un dernourishment. More than 100,000 of the men -drafted for war Sfv!cu2 were rejected because of physical dis abilities resulting from malnutrition; quite a good sized army to be send home because they lacked, the strength to fight, Also 15,000,000 school children of this country are, below par physically aru 6,000,000 are almost disabled from lack of proper food. In this county, of the 121.7 chifJreii weighed 470 are decidedly under weight and 337 more are below par to a lesser extent. Now you are probably saying, "How distressing to Think that, we have so much poverty in our midst." But wait a minute. Poverty does no seem to figure very largely here. These undernourished men and chil dren, come and continue to come from the homes of the rich as well as the poor, and from the cottntry.as well as the city. In fact, one survey showed that of all those examined, the high est percentage of underweight chif trci; came front a neighborhood of Wealthy farmers.

" The local chapter of the American Red Cross is putting on a Nutrition piogram in four of the branches in Bktcs county. Adrian, Amsterdam, Rich Hill, and Butler are the towns taking the work. . Rebecca Sholley, Nutrition worker, has been sent by the Red Cross to carry on the work. So -far the work has largely consist-: ed of weight and height -survey -in the schools. 1217 children have been weighed. Many of thechildren are very much below weight for their age and height. The local doctors will b asked to give their services in exam ining some of the children, as physi cal defects are one of the greatest causes of malnutrition." Besides the instruction to - the school children, Miss Sholley will con duct a series . of ' meetings for the mothers and other women interested in food and nutrition problems. It is hoped that a good many women win attend the meetings and it is especial ly desirable that mothers .of under weight children be there. The meet ings will be held in the various scho.il buildings so that it will be conven ient for everyone to come. Notice of the day and time will be sent home by the children. . This coming Saturday, April 22, a meeting has been planned for the women in the country. It will be im possible for the worker to visit the rural schools, but she is anxious to weigh as many of the children as are a. c .7. SELECTING A SUIT FROM , A STOCK LARGE AS OURS IS AN EASY MATTER.
