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

others ran back as fast as they
could to the billets and spread the

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
"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
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
"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
The audience was composed almost
entirely of men engaged in the man

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
"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.
