The Bituminous Coal Act of 1937 presents many interesting questions of both a legal and economic nature. It is not possible to consider the legal aspects of this legislation without an understanding of the social and economic problems affecting the bituminous coal industry. Because of the fact that so many of the people of 'West Virginia are almost entirely dependent upon this industry it is believed that a consideration of the legal problems that have arisen or may likely arise may be of interest to the bar generally.
