Wood burning locomotives. In Lithuania and other north Baltic states where the American Red Cross, is conducting relief work, the shortage of coal has made it necessary to burn wood in the railway engines. Wood burns rapidly and to carry enough for a long run, a super structure had to be built over the fuel box. The practice is to get up the steam with coal but to use only wood under way. On long runs frequent steps have to be made to replenish the fuel supply

Fuel enough for thousands. Those who feel very badly about the fuel shortage in America might obtain a grain of comfort from this picture. This is the wood market at Podgoritza where people bring a few pounds of wood from many miles distance. Few houses are heated in Montenegro especially since the war, as the invading enemy stripped the country of what little timber it had. American Red Cross doctors have been kept on the jump this winter in an effort to stem the tide of pneumonia and other winter diseases that are attacking these destitute people as a result of their weakened vitality brought on by five years of suffering. Fuel is a luxury in this little Balkan state

The Automotive Section of the Bureau of Standards is studying the anti-knock proportion of fuel used in automobile and aircraft engines and the scientist in this photograph is "listening in" to the signals of an engine instead of listening to a radio broadcasting station.
