exactly what form of industries
are included in the order. Ap
parently the whole country is
much at sea as to just what the
order means.
Meanwhile a supplementary
exemption list is being prepared
by the Fuel Administration but
it appeared doubtful if it will be
made public owing to fears that
the Fuel Administration will be
swamped with requests from
other industries.
Some of the industries notified
of their exemptions were stee
mills, producing ship plates

As the day wore on it became
apparent that the first day's en

tended by the greatest confusion.
While some industries in one
state had closed down the same
classes of business continued in
other states, indicating widely di

mandate by industries. The or

Capt. Carlo Brittain In Command
of the Michigan, With Five
Madison Boys In Crew.
Much interest and anxiety was
occasioned m Richmond late
Thursday when the Daily Regis
ter's Associated rress aispatcn
was read that six seamen were
killed and three injured on the U.
S. S. Michigan, in a gale off the
the Atlantic coast. Capt. Carlo
B .Brittain, whose wife is here
now visiting her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. T. E. Baldwin, is in com
mand of the Michigan, and there
are five Richmond young men on
the Michigan and one of Lancas
ter. Luckily none of them was
hurt. The Richmond members of
the crew are Cecil Simmons,
Evan McCord, Del Azbill, John
William McCord, Andrew - Mc
Cord and a young man named
Terrill from Garrard county.
Mr. Simmons was in Richmond
for 10 days a few days ago, and
probably just reached the ship in
time to go on this cruise. Mrs.
Brittain says that the Michigan
went out of port on Monday, the
day she left Capt. Brittain. No
information is, of course, given
as to the destination or length
of the cruise, though it is thought"
probable that the ship will put
into port with the bodies of the
men killed, and also the injured.
A fuller dispatch gave the nam
es of the men killed and injured
as follows: The dead: Osben
Capers Belyeu, Carl Frederick,
Clarence Eugene Book, Frank
John Prinz, Julian S. Bell, all sea
men ; and John Engellio, Chicago,
