\4ra. Elizabeth Salvati, ot Monongah, U
telling of the work the Red Cross is si
lolng on the battle front. The letter It
was dated just six days before the
\ustro-German drive on Italy, which h
vas begun on October 24. v.
Salvati, at the time the letter was t(
vritten, was actively engaged in Red si
Cross work somewhere along the Ital- at
an front. Salvati, a graduate of the h

tnown in Fairmont, went to Italy n

ind leading coal men will gather at
ho Hollenden hotel at Cleveland,
jhio. on Wednesday afternoon for a
neeting at which the simplifying of j,
allro-id movement and the arranging ,
)f a more effective system of routing a
:oal to the end that a larger produc- fi
don and distribution may result at ti
:ho earliest possible date. J. Walter .
Barnes, Fuel Administartor of West (
Virginia, leaves here tonight to at:end
this meeting and will Teturn j,
rhursday. a
J. Walter Barnes, Fuel Administrate
of West Virginia, has had gratifying
assurance from various organ- T
rations of operators In the state regarding
their determination to supply
:oal to churches, hospitals, schools
:nd domestic consumers. The latest
issurance comes from the Panhandle
3oal Operators' association and is in
:he form of resolutions to the effect
:hat operators in that region will do
ill in their power to provide coal lo:ally,
asking that orders be placed
with dealers and teamsters as the
nines are nqt equipped for hauling
:oal. J. C. McKinley, well known in
Fairmont, is chairman of that organization.
and C. H. Hunter is secretary.
Persons unable to secure coal are advised
by the organization to see:
Marshall County?The Moundsvilic
Board of Trade.
Wheeling and Ohio County?
(Vhecling Commercial Association.
Brooke County?Wellsburg Chamber
of Commerce.
Hancock County?New Cumberend
Chamber of Commerce.
Such action is in line with Mr.
Barnes' policy of referring instances
if shortage of coat to the secretary
jf the chamber of commerce at points
ivherc such organizations exist.
A new ruling is effective, starting
rcsterday, which provides. for the
jrice or coal sold at the mines for delivery
direct to the consumer by wa5on
or truck. The price can be fixed
?y the local committee which the
Puel administrator will appoint, but
iven then is subject to that official's
ipproval. The committee can also
make haulage rules when the operator
makes delivery.
The trustees of the J. V. Thompson coal
lands are holding frequent meetings
as an audit is being made of the r
assets, which requires careful lnvesti- c
gallon of the receiver's reports and I
the bankruptcy reports. R. M. Hite, j

(By Associated Press.)
"RANCE, Nov. 13.?American soliiers
are rapidly becoming experts at
:atrol work and their officers say
hey carry on in "No Man's Land" as
t they had been at it for yenrs. This
s explaiht-d partly by the fact that aclvity
in "No Man's Land" along the
lector held by the Americans is vlrtutlly
open warfare, which is distinctly
LU mUVIIL'UU guiue.
Already stories ot the heroism of
ndlvidual soldiers during trench
raids arc coming to light A recent
ncidcnt inv'oled nve privates who
uslied from their dugouts as the Gcrnans
entered the trenches. Standing,
cneeling and lying In front of the en,vance
they flred on the enemy so suc:cssCully
that they prevented the Gernans,
who made several attempts,
rom entering.
The lieutenant who was knocked
lown-three times by shell lire during
he recent German raid on the Amercan
sector today described his exicrtences
to the American Press. His
"aco.ls covered with scratches from
lying gravel.
"When the firing began, I started
back to tho trench." he said. "The
Irst thing I knew, there was a crash.
[ seemed to see sparks shooting from
ill over my body. I started to crawl

fVe spread ourselves out, expecting
a heavy attack. As a matter of fact
[ found out later that the raid was
jver and the grenades we saw were
jeing thrown by retreating Ger nans."
It is the opinion of the officers that
Jie troops are bearing up excellently
inder their 'flrst experiences in the
trenches. All are learning how to
:onduct themselves under fire, and
tlso that shell fire even when intense
s not as dangerous as it sounds.
