VERDUN A SCRAP HEAP
Armies Said to Have .Hurled 30,
000,000 Shells Into the Area.
In connection with the recent anni
versary of the beginning of the drive
at Verdun, the German newspapers
printed the results of -a calculation
made by a Swedish statistician as to"
the amount or metal burled in the
battlefields around the French strong
hold. On the assumption that no fewer
than 1,000,000 shells a week were fired
during thirty fighting weeks. It is
estimated that 1,350.000 tons of steel
waa hurled across the plains around
Verdun, and Is now Imbedded there.
It Is estimated that 135,000 freight
cars were required for the transport
of shells alone. Fifty tons of steel
is said to have been dropped on the
average Into every acre of the Ver
dun battle area.
Some German papers are quoted by
the Ixmdon press as saying that It Is
worth while considering the question
whether this colossal quantity of steel
cannot some day be reclaimed and
made to serve industrial purposes.
