SHORTAGE IN IOWA ACUTE Reports Denied in Towns Claimed Faced With Lack of Fuel DES MOINES Jan 30 Clyde L Herring appealed to Presi dent Roosevelt today for aid in averting an acute coal shortage in Iowa The governor telephoned the president and asked him to inter cede with John L Lewis United Mine Workers of America president who Monday refused to allow Iowa union miners to extend their 35 hour work week in order to increase coal production Herring turned to Roosevelt after conferring with seven coal opera tors who told him that if Iowa miners would work Saturday mining coal for relief agencies the prospect of serious suffering from lack of fuel would be averted To Appeal Personally The governor said if President Roosevelt prevailed upon Lewis to relax the union miners contract he would appeal personally to Iowa miners asking them to work Sat urday Meanwhile reports from some of the cities allegedly suffering from or in danger of a coal shortage in dicated that the situation was mucli exaggerated Several including Wa terloo Fort Dodge and Council Bluffs reported there was no short age at present and not likely to be one Before agreeing to carry the Iowa emergency to Washington Governor Herring asked the operators why they were unwilling to put the miners union officials claim are un employed to work Virtually Impossible Sam Ballantyne Iowa coal opera tors association president told the governor this would be virtually im possible explaining each miner has his own territory in the shift to work and is paid on the basis of the amount of coal he digs If an extra shift is put on Satur day the coal the regular miners have shot but not removed Friday night will just be so much profit to the extra shift he said Other operators declared they be lieved the estimate of unem ployed is an exaggeration Has Some Foundation Governor Herring said Ballan tynes argument apparently had some foundation as he had received a telephone call from the operator of the Old King Cole mine at Cen terviUe Informing him that this mine put on a 25 man night shift Tuesday night and that the next day the 100 regularly employed miners refused to work until the night shift was discontinued The conference pointed comment brought forth concerning the Guffey Coal act which limits min ers to 35 hour work weeks Herring at first suggested asking Harry Hopkins federal relief ad ministrator to appeal to Lewis but C T Carney an operator said he believed an appeal through the pres ident would be more effective be cause Lewis is in great debt to the Is In Washington Of commented Herring Hopkins can tell Lewis about the Iowa emergency but you must re member Frank Wilson Iowa mine union president is in Washington D and he can tell Lewis about these unemployed The operators assured the gov ernor that if miners worked Satur day and got out enough coal to care for relief orders an acute shortage and its resulting suffering could be averted Herring assured the operators in turn that temporary extension of the work week only could be accom plished in the name of a relief The governor also wanted to know why you operators have made no preparation for an emergency by storing coal Output Cut Down The Guffey replied John Shuler Des Moines operator cut us down to 35 hours of mining a week and we cant turn out as mucfi coal as Other operators pointed out that Iowa coal does not store well that the Iowa market is off in summer and that this emergency could not be foreseen commented A E uoi lingsworth Des Moines operator we werent getting government loans to enable us to store coal He also explained that before the heavy snows many lowans were yetting nonunion mined coal by ruck from Missouri Now that it
