9 CANADIAN OFFICER SAYS ALLIES NOW LEAD IN USE OF GAS BALTIMORE, June 24. "The final phase of the war will come when the Franco-Brltlsh-Amerlcan effort reaches Its maximum, and the allied effort Is well under way at the present time," declared Lieut Clif ford Rellly, of the French high com mission in the United Stales, before 3,000 members of the Ordnance De partment of the United States army from Edgewood, Md., at a. war worK ers' meeting at the Maryland Thea ter yesterday afternoon. It was held under the direction of It. Neale Smith, of the committee on public informa tion. Lieutenant Rellly, who was former ly an officer In the royal highland era of Canada and who has fought 1 Flanders and France, was Injured In the battle of the Somme and In valided to the United States. Short ly after arriving- In this country he was appointed to the French high commission in the United States. He was In the thick of the fighting when the Germans first started to use gas and described the terrors that beset the men when they got their first taste of it. He said the allies have become even better at using It than the Ger- Iteglments Killed By Gas. "Back In the campaign of 1914 the Germans first used that terrible agency of modern warfare gas. The men on the fighting front at the time were surprised to see what they thought were dense clouds of smoke coming In their direction irom mo German trenches. They realized too late what the smoke really was. now ever, and whole regiments were kill ed at once. Some of the wiser ones vntiMil sweaters and mufflers around their mouths and made their wav back to the rest billets, auu others ran back as fast as they could to the billets and spread the news. "Here It was not believed, and many of the. men stationed behind the lines, thinking that a successful drive had Just been launched by the Qermans and wishing to strengthen their lines, rot their eaulpment to gather as quickly as possible and started for the front-line trenches. These also were caught In the fumes and suffered the same fat as the others. "Even after the GermansTiad been using gas for some time," he con tinued, "the British generals found It hard to convince their soldiers and themselves that they should use gas la retaliation, for they thought this was even too barbarous to use en the Germans. They finally made up their minds that they must use it, and now the allies have become more proficient in Its use than the Germans. German Supply Ituns Low. "And w are better equipped to Bake the gaa than Germany. The Germans are finding It more diffi cult to keep up the manufacture of gaa on as large a scale as they use It, while we can make more than We need. We are more than giving the Germans a taste of their own medicine now. "I don't' want you men who are making this poison gas to think that you are not serving your country to the fullest of your ability and to think that you would do much better if you were over In France in the trenches," he warned, "because you are doing the best thing possible right now. The Germans started to use gas and we propose to finish the filthy work." The audience was composed almost entirely of men engaged in the man ufacture of gaa. SAYS U.S. ARMY WILL NEVER BOMB HOSPITALS "No bombing of hospitals, no mis treatment of women and children will be perpetrated by men of the United States army." This was the assertion of Congressman Burton L French, of Idaho, an expert on in ternational law, to an audience of 200 men of the quartermaster corps last night at the T. M. C A. hut at Camp Meigs. "Not over 6 per cent of the goods Intended for France or England have been sunk by submarines since the beginning of the war," he said. "This In the allies' answer to the effective ness of the submarine blockade." One of the high lights In Congress man French's talk was his statement regarding retaliations. "We will bomb German cities and carry the war Into Germany. Now we are pre paring a gas far worse than any ever before used," he said. "But we will not bomb hospitals or mistreat women and children. The helpless Inhabitants of Germany will not be harmed by American soldiers.
