MIDDLE WEST FIGHTS
COLD WITHOUT COAL
Chicago, Nov. 28. Bituminous coal
consumers of the middle west today
started tearing' down the coal bin vu
use it for fuel.
With the first real snowstorm of the
year covering central western states,
many reports were received of tearing
down outhouses and other old build
ings to use the lumber for stove wood.
Industrial plants . shut . down for
Wednesday night until Monday morn
ing in several cities, to conserve the
lapidly dwindling supply of coal. Train
w-i lice was cut to the minimum.
The snowstorm which covered an
trea from Canada to Arizona and from
Chicago to the west slop of the Sierra
. Madre mountains .demoralized wire
service and tied up transportation.
THREE GUARDSMEN TO
Three members of the Oregon Na
tional Guard will be selected for entry
into the West Point military academy
under the new apportionment instead
of two as originally fixed by the for
mer apportionment, according to ad
vices received by Governor Olcott, to
day, from P. C. Harris, adjutant gen
eral of the United States. Inasmuch
as it has been found that some states
have no national guard organizations
recognized by the federal government,
that some fall far short of their au
thorized quotas and that others have
a full orfanized guard it has been de
cided to redistribute the number of
candidates allowed for entrance Into
West Point at this time on the basis
of the actual enlisted strength of the
recognized guard organization of the
several states the letter states. The
appointment of candidates for West
Point will be made by the governor
based upon the results of examinations
to be conducted in the various units
of the Oregon euard.
Supply Of Jobs
The labor situation in . Salem Js
growing acute. There are no jobs, and
dozens of men are coming to the city
in quest ot employment. At the mu
nicipal labor bureau this morning be
fore nine o'clock a half dozen men
were turned away without positions
Only two prospective places were
open, and the first two men who ar
rived were given these.
Up to two weeks ago the bureau
was able to place every man wishing
work in a Job., With highway work at
an end for the winter months, and
building ceasing, jobs have become
few; and where many men were plac
ed in orchards no places are open
Several citizens, realizing that some
thing must be done, are working on a
plan to establishing municipal wood
yard, where the most needy may
fljork and in return receive lodging.
Whether this will be carried out has
not been decided yet.
