"While the new order may mean a

Should it be apparent, however, that
jobbers are demanding an unreason

state dictators to reduce the margin.
"I notice the offiaials in Washing

giving preference to coal cars over
all shipments, with the exception of
food and war supplies," declared Ken

association is supreme.
"Everywhere there is eagerness to
subscribe to company mess funds,
which, because of the abundant gov
