Order Early Kxpccted.
Cutting, oft ' coal to non-essential
industries had been expected Jn
Washington: for a week. It was ,ex
plained tonight that they were not
discriminated against in the order
because of the -fact that it was al
most impossible to classify indust
ies as essential and nonistiaL
Ttiosuands ot factories produgrao
called non-essentials, it 'was pointed
out, supply either directly oriindi
rectly plants which themselves man-,
ufacture goods vitally needed by the
tuvernment or. by the public. Sus
pension of 'a few industries Is ex
pected to- interfere with deliveries if
the' railroads can move the goods In
the present congested state.
Officials tonight foresaw that tho
German government would probably
distort and make much of the order
to improve the morale of theCenman
people, but they said this danger was
uegligable when compared with that
of permitting--the fuel situation to
continue unimproved,

The ' order was Issued under au.
thority conferred in the Iever food
act, which provides a fine of 50ov or
imprisonment for violation : of its
provisions, and - warning was given
that Jtx : would be strictly enforced.
