At this writing things look pretty bad at the Hemingray Glass Co. Soda is getting scarce and cullet scarcer. Cullet is absolutely necessary to run one of the tanks on account of its small melting capacity. Shipping is almost at a standstill and scarcely any packing is being done. The weather and snow together are holding back the stacking, there being no sheds to stack in.

We thought we would be exempt from shutting down the five days and did work up until Saturday noon, but had to shut down until Wednesday. Some of the brothers lost two days and some two and a half days. The Monday shut-down will not be definitely settled
