FLORIDA HAS
PLACE IN THE
HALLOFSTATES
FORMER PEN8ACOLA WOMAN IS
VOLUNTEER IN WORK OF AID
INQ RETURNING SAILORS AND
SOLDIERS.
BY JOHN H. ANDERSON.
New York July 5. On the Island
6f. Scyroa. where Rupert Brooke lies
burled, there Is a spot which the
young: poet himself eald, "will bo for
ever England."
In West Twenty-fifth street, within
the morning: shadow of New York's
triumphal arch, there is a spot which
will be forever Florida, not because
ome thing of Florida lies burled there,
but because there is something: of
Florida that lives there, a thing: of
which Florida knows little, but which
brings to scores of Florida fighters
the languid fragrance of a gulf breexe
through the pines, the soft charm of
her orange blossoms and the tans of
her salty seas.
It Is the Hall of States, at 2 7 West
Twenty-fifth street, the clearLij
house for American soldiers, sailors
and marines, the sorting and distrib
uting center for the thousands of ser
vice men dally thrown upon the city
in the process of demobilization.
The Hall of States was organized
during the latter part of last year by
tate organisations working througn
the War Camp Community Service.
Its central Idea was to bring the ser-
Tlce men Into contact with the people
of . his own state living in New York
a.n3 to provide an information and
recreation service supplementary to
the community work. Its success de
pended entirely upon the support giv
en to the project by the states of the
Union and many of the state appro
priated large sums of money and sent
delegations here to represent them.

Florida, officially, gave nothing. 3ut
Florida has a desk in the Hall of
States and behind the desk is a Flor
ida woman, a Fensacollan, who is do
ing the work for its own sake, and for
Florida's.
She is Mrs. J. M. Roberts, who has
been living in New York for some
time, and who, when she found that
her home state was .without represen
tation, bought a desk herself, and
had a sign painted, "Florida." and sat
down in the Hall of States to wait.
She did not have long to wait, how
ever, because Florida men in the ser
vice soon sou-ght her out. Men from
Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville, Key
West and Pensacola every section Of
the state went to her for assistance
and information.
Nor did they seek In vain, for an
earnest woman with a single desk
can do much if they have the mind.
It was impossible to give them as
much as the men from some other
states were receiving, because money
is necessary to do that, and there is
very little money only that which
Mrs. Roberts and a few loyal Florld
ians. are giving. Nevertheless, Mrs.
Roberts showed them that Florida
does care for her fighters, made them
fert that at least there is one place
in New York Just a little nearer to
"God's country" than the enless miles
of concrete and stone and steel that
make New York.
So the Florida desk in the Hall of
States is a very busy place where the
men get home newspapers and all the
information about New York they
want. But the work does not stop
there for there are some who cannot
even totter to tho desk, and who, be
cause of that fact, need help far more
than those who can. So now and then
one does not find Mrs. Roberts behind
her desk, but the lady from Maryland,
who, without regard for geographic
considerations, is Just across this
Florida line, will tell Jthe visitor that
Mrs. Roberts is in one of the great
base hospitals in the city to see a
wounded man from Florida.
Thi.s, very frankly, is an appeal for
funds. The days of public drives, ap
of the bride, and Misses Theodora
parently, have passed. There will be
no public embarrassment now, for
those who do not heed the call, there
can be only personal reproach admin
istered from within. There is no de
nying that money is needed, but
money isn't everything. If only there
could be some encouragement for the
woman who is determined, with the
help of God, and a single desk, to keep
Florida in the Hall of States. A grout
deal need not be given, but if a great
many would grve a very little, there
would be enough, and somehow, Flor
ida wouldn't seem so far away to
those who are trying to keep her in
the Hall of States.

LONG ISLAND
Bridgeport. Conn., July 5. It has
Just been ascertained that 1,000,000
tons of coal lie at the bottom of Long
Island Sound within 150 feet of the
surface of the water. The salvaging
of this fuel will be developed on a
large scale as a great economic in
dustry. This statement from Bridgeport fol
lows the announcement of the "United
States government that the nation
faces a critical coal shortage. Re
claim the tons of fuel now on the
bottoms of the sea, it is affirmed,
will aid materially in the present
crisis.
The government has Just stated
that coal production has fallen off to
an alarming extent. Estimates given
out officially state that requirements
for the year are fully 630,000,000 tons.
The production of 600,000,000 tons will
be required to make up the deficiency
Only 195,000,000 tons of this amount
were produced from January 1 to
June 14, 1919, making the quantity
necessary to be produced during the
remainder of the year 3-50,000,000
tons. The average weekly production
for the first 24 weeks of the year was
only 8.125,000 tons. To meet the re
quired amount, the average tonnage
which must be produced weekly for
the rest of the present year must be
10,900,000.
The national shortage of coal finds
a part of its answer, according to the
announcement from Bridgeport, in
Long Island Sound and in the long
line of sunken coal wrecks that edge
the Atlantic coast from Bosto nharbor
to Norfolk. Marine experts charac
terize this coast line as "shipping's
greatest graveyard in the United
States."
Thirty thousand tons of coal went
to the bottom of Long Island Sound
in one week last winter. An enor
mous tonnage is represented In the
wrecks listed for years past. Salvag
ing submarine coal promises to be
ne of the big after-war industries.
It will inaugurate a new era in na
tional thrift and the conservation of
wasted public utilities now practically
lsrnored.
