France Uses German
Prisoners to Help
' Harvest Its Crops
(Correspondence of Associated PreaeO
ORLEANS, July M.-The experimental
uee of Germsn prisoners of war as bar
vosters hd begun here in the old prov
ince of Orleans. It may solve the ques
tion, of the harvest without the return
cf the soldiers at the front.
Two' hundred Germans who were cap
tured at Csrency and sent to the prison
camp at Usoudun were transferred to
falestierbee -end there in groups of
twenty sent to the different communes
that have applied to tUe military authori
ties for farm help. Bach detachment Is
- placed under the supervlaloa of the
mayor of the commune acting: for the
military authorities, and is subject to
the same discipline as In camp.
The men are to be paid at the rata of
about 110 per month, in addition to their
board and lodging, directly by tfcoea who
employ them.
Thus far the experiment has developed
no difficulties and if it continues to prove
successful, other conwoys of 300 each will
te font, to other farming centers.

Cumlturs Into caaU.
The college of agriculture of the
University of Nebraska is beglnninc
an experiment In connection with the
feeding of lambs on a scale that is
expected to determine gome practical1
results as to summer and fall feed
ing of lambs. Prof. H. J. Gramllch
of the department of animal hus
bandry, peaklng of thig undertak
ing, says:
"We have Just purchased a carload of
Idaho lambs here s,ths university snd
expect to start them on experiment within
the next few weeks. The purpose of this
experiment will be to obtain figures on
the cost of producing 100 pounds of gain
on dry feed compared with producing it
where various pasture crops are used in
conjunction with corn.
Mere Tbey Will Feed.
'A field of corn has been seeded to
rape and one group of the lambs will bs
fattened In this field. An adjoining field
of corn, planted and cared for under iden
tically the same conditions, but not
seeded to rape, will furnish the feed for
a second group, of the lambs. A third
group will be on blue grass pasture, with
a medium feed of corn. A fourth group
will have a medium feed of corn and ac
cess -to both a blue grass pasture and a
rape pasture. A fifth group of the lambs
will be put in a dry lot with shelled oorn
and alfalfa bay -for a ration. A, sixth
group -will bs put In a dry lot and fed
corn and corn sllsge. A seventh group
will be fed on shelled' corn with rape
pasture for roughage and an eighth group
will be put. on a ration of corn and oil
meal with access to a blue grass pas-
Soane Established Jfotfoas.
"The experiment will probably continue
until November. For many years the
popular belief has been that gains could
be made much cheaper on any class of
fattening animals where the ration con
sisted of grain and grass,, than where
the ration- consisted of grain, and
dry roughness such . aa hay. . like
wise of recent .years many people
have felt satisfied that lambs turned
la oorn fields , In August and al
lowed to clean up the lower leaves, weeds
and other roughness before getting to the
ears made cheaper gains than where they
were .fed grain' and hay in a dry lot The
matter . of whether It pays to sow rape
In, a 'cornfield or. not has received con
Siderable dlsousslbn. As we have figures
oa the actual cost of seeding the rape In
this experiment, we will be able to tell
from our results Just what benefit ac
crued from it by oomparison with lambs
running in a cornfield without the rape.
"These lambs weighed fifty-three
pounds when purchased and are of aver
age quality, many of them showing a
tendency toward black faces. The aim
will be to care for thenvin the same man
ner which the average farmer and feeder
would and " thereby secure results which
would bo directly comparable."

When his wife gently upbraided him fer

where he struck her in the back with
the hammer and finally threw a brick

busy assembling the Information
upon which the new military policy
will be founded.
No announcement haa been made as
to whst the army and navy boards at
work on ths needs of the respective
services have concluded, but It Is defi
nitely known that navy plans contem
plate a big increase in submarines; the
building of thirty, snd perhaps fifty, be
ing recommended: that several battle
cruisers will be, urged and st lesst four

fort msde to Increase ths suxlllsry fleet

If Germany's national existence depends upon a submarine policy which
contravenes those neutral rights , which' the United States Government must
and will uphold, and if, at the same time, the two nations aro determined to
continue their friendly and peaceful relations, something 'of a problem is evi
dent. To our German-American editorial friends the solution is as clear as
daylight we should accept the German view completely but to the great
majority; of the American press the latest German reply appears to offer no
solution of this problem consistent with our national self-respect.
