PARIS, April 1. More than 3.000.
000 acres of French farming soil has
been so badly devastated by war that
it is absolutely non-productive, ac
cording to the examination made by
a French commission of inquiry into
This land has not been workable
for four years, as lt lies in the sone
of northern and eastern France, over
which the contending armies surged.
The agricultural soctloa of the
commission estimates the products of
this shell-swept acreage had a yearly
pre-war value of $200,000,000; so, un
der this head, the loss for the dura
tion of the war amounts to $800
000,000. Of the total wasted soil, 700.000
acres are in such desolate condition
it will be many years before they
will yield crops; some portions never
will bo productive.
Another category of agricultural
damage is that caused by bombard
ments, or the cutting up of the land
for defensive purposes. Under this
beading comes 2,500.000 acres which
cannot be restored to cultivation for
Squally serious Is the loss of live
stock. During the final German re
treat, and even after the signing of
the armistice, the Germans drove all
of the cattle Into Belgium and there,
when the fighting was over, left them
to starve by the thousands.
The Government is urging the farm
ers to form co-operative associa
tions. The chief argument usel is
that by getting together French'
growers can compete with Argentine
produce In the European market.
The monumental task of drafting
an inventory of France's material war
damage with a view to presenting a
bill for its payment by Germany is in
its final stage.
According to Andre Tardieu, of the
French high commission to the United
States and one of the French peace
commissioners, approximately 480,000
dwellings were destroyed in northern
France as a result of the German in
vasion. These figures do not include
the churches nor the factories.
Of the 841 villages in the Depart
ment of the Alsne, where the fighting
was particularly bitter, only twenty
five were untouched by the ravages of
war. Some were wiped out.
Tennyson gave the world the last
word on the League of Nations when
he said that man should "move up

the apes and tigers die."
This is the view held by Mrs.
Champ Clark, wife of the retiring
Speaker of the House, who spoke at
chapel exercises yesterday at George
Washington University, 2023 G street
northwest. Mrs. Clark urged the es
tablishment of the League of Nations
as a vast step toward universal peace.
"It takes more than a 'treaty to
bring about" lasting peace." said Mrs.
Clark. "It requires a passion in the
hearts of the people for peace. It
requires sacrifices by the few that
the many may gain. It requires an
application of the noble Ideals of
