HERMAN GAS AND |
SHELLS MAKE FRANCE 1

Devastated France is now a fer;ile
agricultural counrty, rich with ^
ed clover and alfalfa. German
shells did the plowing and German j
Doison gas fertilized the soil. The ^

saving devices which can be wielded

This was the report brought back
from France by Hujh Fullerton, of
;he Long Island Agricultural Ex- ,
seriment Station, on behalf of the
American Committee for Devastats

Morgan is the head. Mr. Fullerton

ago convinced that this was not!
true, because I had experienced in j
tearing up Long Island soil with
dynamite and had found the subsoil
fertile. It is an old axiom of
agriculture that the subsoil cannot
be productive and the French gov-'
ernment, acting on this premise had ,
condemned large portions of what j
used to be the most productive area I
