Doctor J, Gilmore Lectures
on Soil Fertility.
Doctor John Gilmore of the Col
lege pf Hawaii delivered a mos4 in
teresting lecture on soil fertility at
the'Town Hall Thursday evening of
He said in part as follows:
There has been considerable agita
tion during the past year with re
ference to the conservation of our
natural resources and some action
has been taken looking towards the
iving of those of our natural re
sources that are in danger of ex
haustion through injudicious use
Nearly all of these agitations and
discussions have been with reference
to our timber, minerals, water
supply and soil. It is not to be
questioned but that these resources
ire being exhausted at a rapid rate
and adequate returns from them arc
not being obtained. Both minerals
and mineral oils are being taken
from the earth and put to uses which
are in the main, not mot economi
cal'. Our timber lands are beine;
denuded without adequate measures
for their reforestation and as a con
sequence of this river beds an; being
tilled with soil, devastating Hoods
result, and water power becomes in
termii'tent. -' In connection with
these wastes, it is pertinent to note
that the most important of all of
our natural resources, the fertility
in the soil, has not received ade
quate attention. When our coals
and oils are exhausted, it may be
that other fuels or motor agencies
will be found. When our timbers
are all used up, it may be that sub
stitutes for wood will be developed.
When our mountains are all washed
into the valleys there will s-till be
lands to cultivate; but these things
cannot -bo said with reference to the
fertility that is in the soil. This can
be and is being exhausted through
out tin1 country through injudicious
methods of tillage, cropage and eon-
sumption. It is true that our lands
are yet new, but it is also true that
if we continue to supply tho world
or a large part of it, wilh-produco
from the soil its- inherent fertility
will not last. It is therefore, that
along with our agitation for the sav
ing of other natural products and
resources, we include the saving of
our soil's fertility. The permanent
maintenance of the productive capa
city of the soil is a subject which
transcends all other subjects in its
importance to tho American people.
For the production of products from
the soil requires more capital and
results in the accumulation of more
wealth than any other industry. It
also engages a larger percentage of
our population, and is most funda
mental to our physical well-being.
The ultimate position or the final
destiny of the America nation does
not rest so much upon tho main
tenance a large navy standing army
nor upon a commanding prestige
among tho nations of tho earth so
much as it rests upon the question
whether tho crop producting power
of our sOils shall continue undeplet-
ed or shall be augmented. We
must therefore, get away from tho
idea that the soil upon which we
tread and from which wo derive our
sustinence and growth, is mero dirt
and dirty, and look upon it as the
munificient bank of Nature from
which wo draw tho interest that
supiKirts our families our communi
ties, and our country. However
these funds will not pay interest
