How Big Business" gets the most out of the Coal Pile

[blocks in formation]

For the devices and maintenance materials which have conserved industrial coal piles can often be applied, in some measure at least, to smaller coal-saving problems.

For instance, the covering of heat-carrying pipes or surfaces with scientifically designed insulation is saving America's manufacturers millions of dollars' worth of heat each year-coal power that would otherwise be wasted.

Of equal importance, the loss from wear, friction and leakage has been cut to a minimum through the use of specialized "packing" devices and materials that are known to every engineer as maintenance materials - necessities to efficient plant operation.

It is a source of great satisfaction to us to

have supplied America's plants with both
heat insulations and maintenance materials
-to have been for 25 years one of the
champions for coal saving-to feel that our
commercial efforts to further the cause of
power-plant economy, have in a large sense
helped in national conservation.

This, from the author's preface, indicates that the new novel by the editor of Life is more on the lines of "Amos Judd," The Pines of Lory" and "The Last American" than like his more recent novel, "Pandora's Box." It is the somewhat romantic narrative of a woman and a reckless lover, whose control of waves of thought brings about exciting and significant happenings.


is the title (that was the nickname given the hero because of his unusual eyes).

Especially after the long school year, when all emphasis has been placed on mental training, the relaxation which comes from vigorous outdoor life is necessary. The summer camp solves the problem of the right kind of vacation for your child, and the great increase in the number of summer camps year by year shows how rapidly parents are recognizing their importance.

This is to express my disappointment and regret at reading the current issue of your valued publication.

During the last Presidential campaign I carefully read your criticisms of the President. I was not always in sympathy with what you said, but I wanted the truth. And I still want it from folks who are in a position to give it to me.

Criticism is still right, provided there are good grounds for it. But what of the critic's grounds in the present case? Is The Outlook to be classed as "incompetent because it did not know that we have half a million men in France? Chagrined as I am over your "Knocker's Issue," I would not want The Outlook to be suppressed as incompetent because it did not know some things, nor yet because it spoke without knowledge.

The German of the military class sincerely believes that democracy is impossible as a permanent form of government. He is doubtless pointing out to-day that the American people with their "impossible rights" have forced the Administration to divulge important military secrets.

Outlook, you have repeatedly said that we must meet Germany on her own grounds. You are right. Not that we must suppress criticism by the use of a firing squad, but that we must voluntarily relinquish it for the duration of the war, at least in cases where there is a probability that we are not in possession of all the facts.

Outlook, I read you carefully every week, and have done so for years. You have been very helpful to me. I value your weekly visits so highly that I am still hoping you may some day get rid of some vestigial prejudices such as I believe lie behind your recent pet with the Administration.

Prejudice is the enemy of democracy.

I have just read your article on AlsaceLorraine, in which you discuss the proposal of the German Government "to leave the disposition of Alsace-Lorraine to a plebiscite of inhabitants." I agree your conclusion, but not with all your argument. At the time the provinces of Alsace and Lorraine were taken by Germany from France they were a part of the territory of the French Republic, and could not of their own motion, without the consent of the French Republic, transfer their allegiance to Germany. When Germany took possession of the provinces, she did not consult the inhabitants. There is no reason in conscience or law why France should consult the inhabitants of Alsace and Lorraine as to whether she shall resume sovereignty over territory wrongfully and without consideration taken from her by Germany. The Southern States of the United States seceded from the Union and organized a Southern Confederacy. The United States Government denied the right of the Southern States to secede, and, after the defeat of the army of the Confederacy, resumed its sovereignty over the Southern States without consulting the inhabitants. Why should not the French Republic follow the example of the United States?
