VERY FEW DISTRICTS WORKING AT NORMAL CAPACITY; UNION LEADERS OF MINERS PLAYING SHUT MOUTH.
By the Associated Press
CHICAGO, Nov. 3. — Developments today in the strike of more than 425,000 soft coal miners throughout the country were expected to clarify the situation to the extent of determining whether productions were to be stopped indefinitely or whether any considerable number of workers were willing to return to work. No plans have been made for opening any of the mines with imported labor, and no miner who returns will be
discriminated against. . . ,. ... .
Reports from most of the large mining districts indicated that while a large number of mines would be in shape for miners to resume work, the operators did not expect many union men to re-enter the mines today.
John L. Lewis, acting president of the United Mine Workers of America, who spent Sunday at his home in Springfield, 111., was today on his way back to Indianapolis, headquarters of the organization.
Federal troops were today in the mining^ regions of West Virginia. Tennessee, Wyoming and New Mexico under orders to preserve peace. A company of the Thirty-second Infantry was also on its way from San Diego to do duty in coal fields in the state. The National Guards of Colorado and Oklahoma have already been mobilized at Birmingham, Alabama.

EXPERT DEPLORES USE OF OIL FOR FUEL. SINCE IT CUTS THE AVAILABLE GASOLINE SUPPLY.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 3.—Much of the humor and some of the tragedy of the war are poured daily into the Bureau of War Risk Insurance, which has the enormous task of ad ministering the insurance and allotment accounts of all men in the military service.
At the first of the month the letters arrive at the rate of 140,

“Every barrel of fuel oil used for steam generation is a potential barrel of gasoline,” says W. G. Williams, petroleum engineer of Oklahoma City, in a letter addressed to the International Power Economy conference which held a session in Chicago Thursday and Friday. Williams deplores the continued increase of the use of fuel oil in view of the increasing demand for gasoline and the probability of the world’s supply of crude becoming within a few years inferior to the demand.

Already, though few people realize it, America is an importer of oil. Last year she imported from Mexico 38,000,000 barrels of oil of 42 gallons each. They are now, however, diligently scouring the world for new oil fields, only to find wherever they turn, that British enterprise has been there before them.”
