The board finds that even in the steel and coal districts wholesalers and are turning over their stocks faster than they can be sup- plied. The consumers of the country are still purchasing at an unpre- cedented rate and the reports received by the Board continue to empha- size the prevalence of an unabated business activity due to persistent demand for goods af all stages of praduotion. Drastic action looking toward the conservation of vanishing coal supplies is foreseen by the Board, with consequent curtailment of indus- trial operations. In spite of the return to civil pursuits of millions of men from the military establishments there is continued labor shortage. The reports received show an astonishing economic situation throughout the country. By the Chaplain Rev.

Sunday morning the minister preached i from tne text, "Blessed are they that feunger and thirst alter righteousness for they shall be filled." He said that in times such as these, simple, direct and strong faith and convictions were the need of the hour, and that an un- derstanding of the nature of righteous- ness was of paramount importance. That righteousness had its being in the nature and in the will of God, and that no individual nor" group of indi- viduals could subtract from or add to the sum of righteousness found in God.
