The extent to which the French and
British armies have developed their
"homegrown" vegetable supply Is de
scribed in a report Just received by
the U. S. Food Administration. Dur
ing the Bummer months the French
army is entirely dependent upon its
own potatoes and fresh vegetables.
The French authorities have establish
ed vegetable gardens in or near all Of
their billeting areas. These gardens
are maintained by the troops billeted
from time to time in the vicinity. The
system works excellently and is ap
preciated by the soldiers, who realize
that though they may not . stay long
enough in one place to see the actual
fruits of their labor, they can be sure
of reaping the harvest of similar gar
dens established elsewhere. Vege
taglcs grown with greatest success are
potatoes,' cabbages, turnips, leek, on
ions, carrots and beans.
War gardens and farms developed
by the British army in France, al
though greatly curtailed by the enemy
advances last spring, comprise upward
of 6,000 acres.
Gardens Near Hospitals.
The gardens are cultivated ' by
troops and such of the men as were
gardeners in civil life direct part of
the work. Wherever possible, gar
dens are also established near hospi
tals. One base hospital in France, ac
commodating 800 patients, has main
tained a garden of 60 acres lu which
all kinds of vegetables are grown.. This
land is worked by convalescent pat.

and the open air are beneficial both
mentally and physically to the conval
American Troops to have Gardens
The gardening operations of the
Allied armies have been so successful
in France where the food question is
always vital, that American troops
will grow a large part of their vege
tables. Bulletins explaining the sys
tem of planting and culture to be us
ed will be sent to all garden officers
upon receipt of their requisitions for
seeds. All army manure is to be
hauled and spread upon the gardens.
The control of the agricultural ac
tivitles of the American armies, at
cantonments and posts throughout the
United States as well as In France, is
vested in the Conservation and Rec
lamation Division of the Quarter
master General's Office. The garden
ing activities are designed to supply
a considerable part of the food con
sumed by the army and to give the
troops fresher and better food than
they could get otherwise. It also tends
to reduce the volume of transportation
which is a very weighty problem in
war time. For every million men
under arms, the annual Saving in tran
sportation is expected to exceed 250,
THE MOST CONSCIENTIOUS
OBJECTOR IN UNITED STATES
The most conscientious objector,
probably, in the United States, is re
ported by H. C. Whiteford, county
agent for Anne Arundel County, Mary
land, in a statement received by the
U. S. Food Administration, during
July. During this month Mr. White
ford has found places on farms for
five conscientious objectors.
All of the men gave satisfaction ex
cept one whose conscience did not
permit him to milk cows because the
milk went to the U. S. Naval Academy
The most of this conscientious oh
joction lies either in the fact that the
objector is a coward or that they are
to lazy to get in and fight.
By contrast with this unusual case,
persons who produce or conserve
food needed abroad occupy first-line
trench positions on the food firing line,
