VOLUNTETR
WORKERS TO
HAUL COAL
Volunteer workers to
haul coal into the Center
are needed immediately to
alleviate the severe short-
age caused by sudden cold
weather, Project Director
James Lindley said today.
Thoro is sufficient coal
at the railroad tracks in
Granada to provide an esti-
mated 65 tons per day dur-
ing the entire cold spell,
according to Henry F. Hal-
liday, administrative of-
ficer, and at least 40
haulers and 10 truck dri-
vers arc needed to bring
it into the Center.
Volunteers are asked to
apply at the office of
Walter Knodel, placement
officer, 6F-6B, immediately.
SHORT CIRCUIT
BLAMED FOR FIRE
A short circuit caused
by an over-loaded power
line was the reason for the
fire that broke out between
the roof and coiling of the
9E moss hall on Monday morn-
ing.
The Center fire depart-
ment was on the job in
double quick time and had
the flames under control
before any serious damage
resulted.

the heavier type are recom-
mended, especially for wom-
en. Overshoes and galoshes
are an absolute necessity
and long underwear,a rarity
in California, is recom-
mended.
Heavy snowfalls begin
about Christmastime and
cold wcathor will continue

He also suggested that

newspaperman said.
