WHO IS THE PRESENT DAY HARRIMAN?
DEFERRING to the President's proclamation calling
I ? for greater energy in the output of coal the New
Yark World of yesterday says that, "in special need of
U?ic measures to stimulate production, coal may stand
tow where ships stood last winter."
It certainly does, and the place where the heroic mess*
res ought to be applied is the transportation end, for it is
pan this that coai production hinges, and it is there that
Aa least progress has been made since the beginning of
the present coal year when Dr. Garfield put in effect the
toning system and began his effort to prevent a recurrence
of last winter's fuel famine.
There has been some little improvement in the car supply
^ A" Bill ilia, rrtil r.oinn ?inr? ill* rj*mnr*lisincr sc.
I M|lted car system was abolished, and in some regions there
has been a great improvement, but it is a significant fact
lit transportation progress has not been half as fast as
ike increase in the demand for coal.
If the program that was announced at the annual meeting
of the National Coal association were all that the mines
of the country were now expected to take care of it would
be safe to say that there need be no uneasiness about the
fftetfjn But the Fuel administration has sent out a
warning that the demand for coal has grown way beyond
the nest extravagant dreams of the experts back in the
early part of last June. And some of the figures that are
given ia this connection are almost disconcerting.
But they do not disconcert the mine workers or the
opinion. They know that the men on the front line
hove to do the work that is cut out for them no mattn
hat the difficulties. They are not asking any favors m
at respect They are not even complaining that they do
sot Iomw from day to day what is required of them. Al!
lhey.sk is that plenty of can and locomotives and teraiaal
faciliteis are provided so that the coal can be hauled
away. If they can get that they will show how patriotic
they are ia a way that will challenge the admiration of the
But not only are they not getting the cars and the locomotives,
but there is not much evidence that enough thought
has been past to work upon terminal facilites. A whole
lot of the light car supply in this region last week was
due to delay in taking care of die loads after they reached
M MIL 5o, we can assure ilie World that there is no
t doubt that heroic measures ire needed in the production
of cool The Charlie Schwab of the railroads is needed
to work out the railroad end of the problem. If E. H.
I fginmea were alive all would know just who the man is

I VOCATIONAL CLASSES.
A NNOUNCEMENT that vocational classes for the
t a* trailing of men for special mechanical service with
; the army are to be conducted here will interest a large
| Mwber of men now that there is almost a certainty that the
I > drift age will be extended to take in all from 18 to 45.

will appeal to men who have reason to believe they will

tunitjr to pick, ia a eerteia measure, the kind of aervie
they will give, whereas if they take their chaace in the re|
ular calls they will not have the slightest control over th
lund of an army career they are to have.
There it a tremendous demand ui the army for men wit!
some mechanical and technical training. In the past th
government has been making an effort to train the me
after they actually get into the ranks, through special tram
! .ing schools for men who were willing to volunteer. Tha
is very satisfactory as far as it goes, but it is too slow, an:
it is not elastic enough. Under that system, for instance
it would not be possible to call out additonal hundreds o
a given kind of skilled men at a moment's notice if ai
emergency requiring such an action should arise. Th
new plan of training the men while they are waiting fo
their call is expected to overcome that and other defect
in the old system.
The West Virginian feels confident that there will b
a good turn out for the Fairmont classes. There is plenty
of patriotism hare, but it takes something more thai
plain patriotism to appreciate to the full the opportunity
which these classes afford; it takes pride in personal effi
cieney. Aad we are sure there is an abundance of tha

LI I Y folk seldom hear about a great network o
boys' and girls' clubs which spreads over the who!
of agricultural America. These clubs will increase th
food supply of the country something like $I0,000,00(
this year. That is largely pork and poultry, for the hoys
1 clubs run largely to p:g and the girls' are strong on poultry
I though there are boys' com clubs, boys' calf clubs, girls
i canning clubs, and both combine in garden clubs.
The original idea of this boys' and girls" club move
ment was to interest the farm children m farming. It wa
to keep them on the farm. The "key" was in giving then
a chance to earn money of their own. The object aimei
at has been attained. Over 2.400,000 girls and boys ar
members. They will make better farmers and farmers
wives to feed future America. Right now they are in
creasing our war supply of food, which in itself i
reason enough for us city folk to be concerned abou
this rural movement.
Reports that the U-hoata operating nff the America!
coast are uaine some form of gas attack against coas
guard stations and light houses will 'lead to new out
bursts of Indignation and loathing in this country. Ru
it is not the first manifestation of frightfulness in tli<
German navy. Gas shells were used In the Jutland bat
tie. Gassing roast guards and light house men. how
ever, Is even more despicable than using gas shells it
a naval engagement, for the reason that these men arc
non-combatants to hrgin with and in most cases the}
are so situated that they cannot even run away.
In spit# of the fact that the German resistance i?
plainly atlifening. dispatches from the front begin '<i
hint that the present battle may become the beglnnlnt
of the much discussed Allied general offensive. This
much seems to he certain: Koch has completely outgeneraled
(fie supermen and the lighting for the remain
der of the 191* campaign will be just as he wants it
| to be.
The latest politician to he placed in a position which
requires vehement denials of having participated in
' conferences with the ubiquitous German propagandists
Is ex-Governor Colquitt, of Texas. Some of theae fellows
are innocent and are suffering from fright fulness
methods in our politics and some of them are guilty
but will be able to get out of the scrape with whole
skins, but all of them will likely see to It that they are
not caught in the same way again. Farming the hyphenated
vote is going to be a mighty unprofltihl,
business hereatfer and as recent events have proved it
never was very' safe.
The drive to secure young women willing to enter the
training schools for nurses is producing splendid remits
In Pittsburg. Twenty-one names were added to
the list yesterday and each day recently saw the addition
of many names. So far there has not been a single
response to this appeal in Marion county. What Is the
matter with the local girls? Surely they are as patriotic
as the boys.
Woman party members who were arrested yesterday
for participating In a demonstration In Lafayette squar<
Washington, for which they had neglected to get
police permit, went bark there and had to be arrest'
all over again after they had been released upon thei
promise to appear Wednesday for a trial. While thr
sort of thing was going on thousands of women wsi
at work In Washington earning a right to vote by do
Ing war work.
