Austria Troops
As Allies Offer
No Aid In Peace
Vienna, April ! A wave of pessi
mism baa swept over the country since
Baron Koran!, minister of finance,
and the food controller returned from
Paris with empty hnds except fw
some small food credits. Newspapers
express regret at the delay of the
hoped for American loan and publish
warnings of approaching exhaustion of
food supplies and of another crisis.
Depression prevails in business circles-
Manufacturers declare that these
driblets ot loans for food purchase are
f utile and that only credits sufficiently
large to enable business to. get on tta
fret by the purchase of coal and raw
materials will 'postpone the complete
breakdown of Austria,
One of the basic' causes of the covin-'
try's paralysis is lack of coal due to the
failure of the coal supplying countries
to live up to their agreements. For
this reason Industries lie idle.
Austria's natural and logical coal
supply lies in Bohemia and Prussia, or
Upper Slloeia. Under present arrange
ments coal is secured, what there is of
!t, under agreements between state
governments and upon arrival here is
distributed by government officials.
The supply is so small that virtually
all of it is needed for limited railway
operation, the gas and electric plants
and limited private domestic use.
None remains for Industries and no
factories except those producing the
necessities of life are in constant oper
ation. For Instance, the great Floris
dorf locomotive works, with a capacity
of 160 locomotives a year have been
Idle for four weeks while all Europe
is crying for railway motive power. The
demand for freight cars is insistent and
yet tfie Oraz car factory with a poten
tial capacity of 300 cars a month pro
duces lees than fifty bocause coal is
not to be had and consequently they
cannot secure wheels, axles and struc
tural iron for bodies.
Vienna is Burrounded with a for
est of factory stacks but smoke issues
from few of them. This has been true
ever since a revolution fifteen months
ago. Manufacturers say that if coal can
tie assured in sufficient quantities they
-will manage to find raw materials
enough to tart with and slowly build
up credits for more.
Commtcsion after commission has
- vainly tried to obtain delivery of the
coal for which contracts were made
with Czccho-Slovakia. The reason for
this failure Is unknown here. One ex
pert says that unless Austria is allowed
to get coal from tho upper Silesian
fields, whence has always come the
bulk of Austria's supply her population
must bo deported or the country will
perish under starvation and anarchy.
The solution, he says lies in the hands
of the powers.

When examining the inside of a cas
ing for a puncture, fabric break or
weak spot, most of us try to force the
beads apart with both hands, support
ing the tire meanwhile upon our shoul
ders as best we can. This task may
be enromously lightened by using a
wedge made of a substantial bit tit
wood three-quarters qf an inch thick
and three to five inches long according
to the size of the tire. This wedge is
slipped between the beads and puryta
around the circumference of the cas
ing with one hand, while, the other
hand is free to hold the tire.
One thing tn which a good many
states lead Vermont is in getting "Pure

Two Great Chandlers
Right Out In Front
HERE are two Chandler Six models which the big arid cort
stantly expanding Chandler factory production has never
been able to build in volume that could supply the demand of
discriminating motor car purchasers. Iliey are the Chandler
Six Touring Car and Dispatch Car, the former a big, handsome;
roomy, comfortable, real seven-passenger car; and the latter a1
trim, smaller car, suggestive in its appearance of all the good
things of outdoor life. The Dispatch Car has a touch of snappy
style in its clean lines, and is strikingly finished in the beautiful
Chandler Rainbow Blue. It seats four persons in restful comfort.
Both the Chandler Six Touring and Dispatch Cars are mounted
on the same standard Chandler chassis, developed, through
seven years of manufacture, to a surpassing point of excellence
and famous for its really marvelous motor. The Chandler Car
is priced much lower than other cars which may, perhaps,
compare with it.
