The grain-threshing season will be
gin in some parts of the country in
the next thirty days and will continue
throughout the country as the season
advances and grain matures. Ihe
supply of coal for threshers is a very
important matter. The threshing in
dustry has been classiAed by the
Priorities Committee of the War In
dustries Board as belonging under the
following classification as shown on
Preference List No. 1:
"Food—Plants manufacturing, Mill

The threshing industry in years
pt.st has largely used domestic sizes
of bituminous coal for threshing. This
year, in many parts of the country,
the supply of domestic coal is limit
ed, and except where there see/r.s to
tie a plentiful supply, operator?, ship
pers and dealers supplying threshers
should supply mine run coal or other
grades of steam coal. Nut and slack
sizes, generally speaking, are not
suitable and should not be supplied.
The Food Administration has a
threshing committee in each county
headed by a chairman who has been
asked by the Food Administration to
work with our State and County Fuel
Administrators so as to provide the
necessary supply of threshing coal.

threshing coal should give same pre
ferred attention so that the coal, as
far as possible, can move in advance
of the threshing season and retail
dealers ordering coal for re-sale to
threshers, should order promptly and
make every effort to keep themselves
supplied with a sufficient supply to
protect threshers, but should not en
deavor to accumulate large stocks of
coal in excess of the known require
ments of the threshing industry.
Where threshermen fail to secure
a supply direct, or retail dealers or
dering for threshermen are unable to
secure a supply, in such cases they
should make their requirements
known through the County Fuel Ad
ministrators to the State Fuel Ad
ministrators, who in turn will place a
request for the requirements in ques
tion with a District Representative
serving the consuming territory in
question, and in
Representatives will see that prompt
atention is given the request.
J. B. Lyon of Williston is district
chairman for Williams and McKen
zie counties and will look after the
requirements of coal in this district.
