ton of coal is required to mine, man
ufacture and burn a thousand brick,
the effect of this upon the cost of
production is very serious. Manu
facturers have, however, been very
reluctant to pass the added cost to
the consumer, evidenced by the fact
that the composite price for this
month $14.06 exceeds last month's
composite price by only 62 cents.
"Some districts show a less in
crease than others and this is
where oil is used for fuel. On the
whole, the brick Industry has en
deavored, with success, to keep
prices at a reasonable level.
"It is to be noted, however, that
we art going into the winter
months with no reserve stock. On
the contrary, the 92 firms reporting
still have to make 48,000,000 brick
to catch up with the orders now on
their books, and 2,000,000 more brick
were moved from the yards than
were produced last month. The
probabilities are that a record i
amount of construction will be car
ried on this winter, with a strong
demand for brick."

Association Reports on Condition
of Industry Throughout,
The coal strike had little effect
on brick prices throughout the
country in spite of the fact that the
brick industry felt the curtailment
of fuel severely, according to the
montmy disest or conditions in the
common brijk industry issued Octo
ber 1 by the Common Brick Manu
facturers' Association of America.
Brick prices in the northwest
were not affected at all, according
to the report, and throughout the
cquntry the composite price advance
was only 62 cents.
The report follows:
i'he coal strike may be over for
the miners, but the brick industry Is
stiil feeling its. effect severely. Coal
is used to. produce power for brick
plants as well as fuel for burning
brick over most of the country. The
brick industry is one of the largest
users of coal. Coal is generally
bought on contract from the coal
operators. The general experience
for the brick manufacturers has
been that for some time it has been
impossible to obtain deliveries of
contract coal. To keep running and
to. fill the orders from an active
market, the manufacturer has had
to go Into the open market and bid
for coal, paying double and trebfe
the contract price. Inasmuch as one
