WOMEN WILL ENROLL
IN SERVICE OF COUNTRY
ADA, Okla., April 30.—The Fed-
eral Fuel Administration for Okla-
homa is greatly encouraged by re-
ports from many parts of the Stat*
as to the progress of its campaign
for the early ordering of next win-
ter's supply of coal by both domestic
and industrial coal consumers. A
flood of orders for next winter's coal
supply is reported. Roth coal pro-
ducers and retailers report orders
filed in excess 0f the supply available
for immediate delivery.
With hundreds of thousands of
tons ordered, of course it has b?en
Impossible to effect, complete deliv-
eries. This has given rise to some
complaint among those who are pa-
triotically responding to the re-
quests of the Fuel Administration
and have sought to lay in their win-
ter's supply. It will be readily ap-
preciated, however, that the mines
cannot produce, and the railroa !:•
cannot deliver the whole annual cua'
supply of the State within a few davs
or weeks. The Fuel Administration.
however, will exert every effort to
expedite deliveries and to effect the
/distribution of a maximum amount
of coal during the summer months
With ■ the country's coal supply-
largely ordered ahead, the Adminis-
tration will be in a position to act
promptly and facilitate the move-
ment of an adequate supply of coal
to meet the demand. The railroads
will be enabled to judge of the traf-
fic facilities which must be made
available for aiding coal production
and for distributing the supply.
The fact that consumers cannot
secure immediate delivery should not
deter them from placing their orders
at once. These early orders once eli

determined drive to secure an a le-
quate production and prompt distri-

tience in awaiting deliveries art'

have the privilege of rendering ser-

History bears out the statement
that the women always do their duty
