[three stars] The only worker who deserves the condemnation of his community is the one who fails to give his best in this crisis; not the one who accepts deferred classification and works regularly and diligently to increase the coal output. A great task is to be performed. The operators and their staffs alone can not do it; but both parties, working hand in hand with a grim determination to rid the country of its greatest obstacle to winning the war, can do it.
