FARM TRACTORS TO 1TIAXCE.
To Increatje FranceVereps and tA
lighten the burden of toil on her old
men, women, and children, the Unit
ed States Food Administration will
ship 1500 farm tractors to thai coun
try. The first hundred are already
on the way, and the whole number
will be In Franco by March, in time
for the spring; plowing. They art
expected not only to be of Immense
servle to France, but to release added
tonnage for the Allies and American
troops by Increasing the amount of
food produced there, thus decreasing
the amount of food that 'must be
shipped from America.
The Idea originated with a former
American ambassador to Turkey,
Henry Morgenthan, and his son, Hen
ry Morgentbau Jr. The food admin
istrator approved the Idea. Deck
space was provided for the first ship
ment of -tractors aboard a navel
transport through the efforts of tb
assistant secretary of. the navy.
Franklin Roosevelt, and the pay
master. General McGowan. The food
administrator designated Henry Mor
genthan Jr. to follow the machines
to France add put tbem In operation.
He will organise schools of Instruc
tion for French operators and will
assist the French minister of agri
culture In distributing the tractors
and operating them economically.
The French high commissioner, M.
Tardien, approved' lite Idea on be
half of the French government and
a committee of tbe National Imple
ment ft ,Vehicle Association assured
Mr. Morgenthan that the tractors
can be furnished and that with the
shipment made now the manufactur
ers will not bo embarrassed In tak
ing care of the American farmer,
since they will have time tov manu
facture an' additional ' number to
meet the home demand when It
comes. -The need for these, tractors
Is shown by this comparison of the
present and pre-war acreage of crops
The acreage sown to crops In the
unlnvaded portion of France In 1917
was 10.74 2,157 acres, compared With
40,657,293 acres In 1913. This Is a
decrease of 9,915.136 acres .or 24.4
per cent. ,
The total crop production in
France last year Is officially given
as 22.290.000 metric tons (24.531,
290 short tons), compared with 35,
800,000 metric tons (29,462,340
short tons) In 1913, a decrease of
13.600.000 metric t" '14.81110
sebes- ,tons) or 61.3 per cent, or s
decrease of 28.7 per cent.
The following figures give an Idea
of why it Is good tactics to send
tractors to France now and. tractors
can plow 500,000 acres this spring,
and another million acres for plant
ing fall whesL Half a million acres
in potatoes would produce 1,500,000
tons of potatoes; one million acres
In fall wheat would produce 450.000
tons. of wheat. This Increased pro
duction in France would greatly re
lleve the food situation in that coun
try; leaving, moreover, 1,950)00
tons of shipping available for other

It was all of no avail. Grant did
not relax for an Instant that deadly
