Ewing, III him the hate of many Americans in all walks of life who seiw his demands on the coal industry disrupt labor peace time ami time again. In internal union polities and affairs, he weis awarded the hate of union leaders throughout Ihe organized movement. Even some of his miners now see him as one cause of their present situation. On the other hand, the United Mine \\ orki'is is one eef the most powerful and wealthy unions in the country. It owns two ol the largest hanking institutions in the nations capital, besides large blocs of corporate slock, and still has a most effective voice in union affairs.

If no one buys coal. certainly there is no necessity for opera- lion of the mine's. Thus it can he said lhal the high price eef coal has greatly assisted other power industries in converting the American industrial machine away from coal. Tbe railroads, for instance, have converted in great part from coal t<> either electricity or diesel oil- Then' is some- speculation thai even atomic i n- ergy may be' used to power locomotives.
