Brooks Fleming. Jr., production manager
of the Fuel administration for
northern West Virginia, does not hold
out much encouragement to coal operators
planning to open new mines. Mr.
Fleming appeared before the side track

a course would mean increased production
of coal and not at the expense
of other operations and not when , its
production would place an increased
burden on the railroads in the matter
of placing empties. As a result of the
conference Mr. Fleming firmly oelieves
that it is going to be very hard to get
