now establishing their own homes.
They want fuel. Many who moved
to war production centers in the
early stages of the war were not
here when the coal was rationed
to this community, but are back
now and they want their part. I
know of at least 25 families who
had not lived here before who have
moved fn from Fontana Dam. They
want and need coal. In other
words we have m.my more to serve,
but less , coal to supply them," said
"Most of our u: tomers had been
supplied with 50 per cent of the
coal they are supposed to have this
winter during the- month of De
cember, and now with the prospect
of three months oi cold weather,
they are entitled to only 30 per
cent of coal, that is X we can get
that for them," comvnented one
"We do have the proved of Xi
and one-half per cent of our March
shipments, which might be used
during the months of January and
February, but that is a big gamble
on March. Just suppose e have
our worst weather then and that
is often the case in that month,
where will they be if they have
used it up? It will be just too- bad.
for they cannot possibly get any
more," said another dealer.
"They tell me that coal is bevns
shipped in large quantities No.'th
and West, but that the South is
being left out. I talked recent ;
with a man in service who ha i
tome fiom the Great Lakes section',
and he said his train had to wait
until 50 train loads of coal went J
by. somewhere out of Chicago,
headed for that area. With pro
duction low. you can easily see
why we can't supply the demands
of our customers." one explained.
"There just isn't any coal on our
yards and we never know when
we will get any, but you better
believe the news gets around when
we do. They just flock around us
like geese and demand coal. Re
cently we had a carload and i;i
one hour it was gone. We wiM
expect a load of stoker coal, and
it will be lump coal and often the
other way round. Half the time
we are never notified when it is
coming. I guess they know we will
be glad enough to get it." said still
another depressed dealer.
"People will just have to make
the best of the situation. We only
wish we did have the coal to sei!
them, for it is our business and
we like to keep coal moving," said

One lady recently stated that she
used to throw her own dinner to
the dog most of the time. It made
her sick just to look at anything to
eat. She was swollen w'th gas, full
of bloat, had headaches, felt worn
out and was badly constipated.
Finally she got INNER-AID and
says she now eats everything in
sight and digests it perfectly.
