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. tents during a short tour of duty be fore being discharged. Light duties and the open air are beneficial both mentally and physically to the conval escents. 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, 000 tons. :0: 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 at Annapolis. 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, :o: "KAMERAd! KAMERAD!" By Geo. B.
