ENERGY room MINERL
Denver, Col., Sept 22-A method
of extracting an almost unlimited
amount of electrical energy from thel
earth, and which will practically
revolutionize the power problem of
the present day, is claimed by F. R.
Woodward, a mining engineer.
Woodward still ri'tains jealously
the secret of his method, but de-
clares that he has evolved a way of
charging storage 'battries perpetu-
ally from electricity known to be
present in certain mineral ores. He
predicts that in a few years to be
practically all lighting, heating, and
power distribution for the industries
will be made from these perpetually,
charged storage batteries.
151En, he said, some twenty-,five c
years ago, he accidentally discover-
c(l an electrical charge .emanating
from some gold and silver ore, he
immediately sought to make some
use of this, and has been at work
ever since. At the present time, al-
though he believes his invention
might be applied to home use, he
admits that it would be impossible
to apply it on a large commercial

said that American wage-earners are

president of the National Cash Regis-

"When I was in Washington a few,
days ago," he said, "I was amazed at
the eagerness the chief executive dis-
played to know all about labor and
industrial conditions in the middle,
west. I was given to understand by
those close to the President that no
visitor to the White House from any
section of the country, who has an
important position in industry, art or
journalism escapes this desire of the
chief magistrate for industrial in-
; "It is for this reason-that he is so'
JAvell informed as to actual conditions.
-that President Coolidge is so opti-
inistic over labor conditions in this
country," cQntinued Mr. Patterson..
"He has amassed a wealth of first-
1hand information. He knows that the
;wheat crop bids fairto bethe best
ever grown, and that all the great
,business enterprises of the middle
west are breaking records for manu-
facture, and are working full time
vwith a full quota of meni.
"With the Dawes-Young reparations
plan actually working and the evacu-
ation of the Ruhr started, he is able
to forecastha resumption of foreign
business which is bound to aid the
prosperity of America. He sees, and
rightly, prospects of a year of real
American prosperity, solid and well-
