Senator Ashurst said more than
1,000 veterans suffering with tuber

NO CHANGE IN COAL STRIKE,
Washington, May 7. Weekly pro
duction of coal apparently has now
struck "a temporary leel a little
above the four million ton mark,"
the United States geological survey
announced tonight in connection
with it's weekly summary of the in

ending May Gth. the statement said,
indicated that production of coal
would aggregate 4,lCiO,000 tons, ap
proximately the same as in the pre
vious week. Production wr.s con
fined almost entirely to bituminous,
it was declared, "production of an
thracite remaining practically at a
Based on its reports of production,
the survey said, the strike situation
appears to be "essentially unchang
ed." "No significant break in the ranks
of the striking miners has occurred,"
the report declared, "although a
small number of men have gone back
to work in Texas. The number of
non-union men on strike has not
changed materially. The accumula
tion of unbilled cars of coal is slow
ly decreasing, but still is above nor
mal. "Demand is stiffening and the lat
est district to report improvement;
is the middle west, but the market
still is not active enough to call out
full production from mines remaining
at work. Consumption is being met
largely from storage."
