"In December, 1017. Professor Roth
of the Griefswald Pniversity, was
quoted aa making the claim that Am
erica bad entered the war in order
to secure fhe potash deposits of Al
sace, as Atnericnn crops would be In
pepetnaJ jeopardy without potash.

"ITiis emphasises the fact that phos
phoric! acid, in tW firm ot sgperphos

production than potash, ns ' was long

phosnhatic fertiriaers were usefl site,
fessfully for over 20 years before the
advent of pot-ish. Ge-'niany has no
mineral phoeohfttes wtt which, to.
make superuhospha'es, being tppen

rild Tunis for her supply of this basic
raw material.
"While potash is valuable as a fer
