Hereby orders and directs that until further or other order of the United States Fuel Administrator, and subject to revocation or modification by him from time to time and at any time hereafter, every producer (which term includes every person, firm, corporation or association operating as owner, lessee, or purchaser of the entire output of a mine) of bituminous coal in the States of West Virginia and Kentucky in the Kenova-Thacker, Logan and Kanawha districts along the Norfolk & Western and Chesapeake & Ohio Railways and in the Eastern Kentucky districts along the

Chesapeake & Ohio, Sandy Valley & Elkhorn and Norfolk & Western Railways, and short line connections, shall, except as hereinafter provided, sell, ship and distribute such coal only to dealers and consumers and for use and consumption within the following described section of the United States hereinafter called consuming zone, viz:
