SALVAGE DEPOTS Galher Up Some of the Wreck' age From Ruins and Bring Here. 5,000 PERSONS EMPLOYED Get Arms, Ammunition and Bay onuts and Every Kind of Fighting Material From Ruins. American Supply Ilendqtiarters, Tours, Krance, Aug.—(Correspondence of Tho Associated Press.)— Two carloads of hair brushes abandoned by American soldiers lu camps were among the wreckage of battle brought today to the great salvage depot of the American Army here. This was only one little Item In the grist of do- brls and litter from tho fighting zone which has been carefully gathered up and sent here for restoration. Five thousand persons are employed In renovating and repairing this wreckage. The material thus saved and restored to use or sold amounted in value last month to $2,GO0,OO0. In the big battle around Chteau- Thlerry, as our fighting men went over the top they were followed closely by detachments of non-combatant troops to grope amid the wreckage and debris and save it from complete abandonment and loss. Bach detachment comprised 29 enlisted men and an officer. They had truck's and derricks and all the paraphernalia for gathering broken-down cannon, arms and material left in the track of a contest, and to send it hack to the salvage depot here. Strange tilings have come out of this war, but none stranger than this gigantic salvage plant where everything from crippled guns and ennnon to old army shoes and caps aro saved from total loss and turnod back to some useful end at the front. At first people looked at It as a freak. There was nothing like it in the Civil war or the more recent modern wars. It'started on a small scale with 200 hands. But now, after a few months, It is a monster industry, with huge buildings aud towering stacks. It will save the government $35,000,000 tho first year, and It-may reach $50,000,000. This is no freak; It is cold, hard saving of millions of dollars, at a time when material is scarce and shipping difficult. It is the anti- waste campaign brought to its highest development by a huge government undertaking. Remarkable Details. Going over the plant today there was an opportunity to see tho remarkable details of this salvage. The wreckage of tho battlefield IB only one of the sources of this salvage, explained our escort, but it is the greatest source. As men spring into action, they throw asldo everything not absolutely essential. There Is besides the litter of the actual fighting, broken and abandoned goods of every conceivable nature. It Is not only what Is left by our own troops, but what Is left by the enemy, often great stocks of arms, ammunition, bayonets and every kind of fighting material. Even when there is no battle, the mere shift of a division of troops leaves on enormous stock of abandon goods. ' Moved on short orders, the men pick up a few fighting essentials—gun-s, blankets, emergency rations—and leave the rest behind, books, extra clothes, shoes, etc. Tho men arrive from America with an undue amount of clothing; it is tritnmed down at tlio first training camp; again it is trimmed down as they go to the front, and each new trimming of thousands of men, means another huge stock for salvage. lu the main building, a quarter of a mile long, there was the roar of a vast and diversified industry, with over <i;000 women workers and a thousand men, with long batteries of sewing machines, shoo machines, rubber and harness machines such as one sees in the great factory districts; with the same huge installation of engines, boilers, disinfecting plants, laundries; and the whirr of big metal machines for making over the many branches of ordnace. Hundreds of women -were sorting tho uniforms and underclothing just coma from the salvage processes. Ther.o were some 200,000 blouses, on these towering shelves, and as many more of all the other articles of soldier wear. They were In bundles, looking very fresh and clean, quite like the stock of a well-T!qulpped clothing establishment The women wore arranging the garments in three dorses: , Class A—Garments in good order, practically the same »B new, to be sent back to the front as part of the supply for fighting troops. ClaBs <Jannen,ts partly worn out but fully repaired, to bo sent to the base ports on the coast, for labor troops and stevedores. Class C—Garments much worn out in a fair state of preservation, >o be sent to prison camps for Gerinan prisoners. .' Significant of Gorman Prisoner*. This was significant of what, the German prisoners were getting; nor the beet, to be sure, and not the same goods as our own men, but worn goods in a, fair state,of preservation, it seemed to be an answer to the outcry that the German prisoners were getting the same as ojr men. One could follow.the stages of the huge stacks of bob-na^ed army shoes from the time they arrived, covered with the mud and grime of the trenches *nd the bsttlefie|U, through process after process of-4tcMtte8ration, cleaning, repairing, aradipg, ujiW they finally eJAergod^tu stocks o| substantial footwear. -Like, the garments, those verg vV*§gel4e at back to the (lfbtin«-tonot* t pr to the stevedore*, Why don't you try the National Dry Cleaners?

It was -the same with the Infinite variety of army equipment going through the salvage process, rubber boots and arcllcs,~ineUer tents., harness for artillery, saddles, bridles, stirrups. Ail of it was on a prodigious scale, 50,000 garments a day; 1,000 pairs of rubber boots a day at the army price of $2.65 a pair. Tho salvage of all kinds of rubber articles was !)9 per cimt, or almost a complete saving of everything received. More, than a million dollars worth of clothing was saved last month, and tho magnitude of the work as a whole, can be Judged from these figures of the output: Shoes, $fc!5,120; clothing, $1.307T026; , harness and leather, $57,000; rubber, $90,000; canvas and webbing, $35,000. There are some curious things gathered up in this litter of the camps and battlefields; for example, three fireles3 cookers. Enough books and magazines are left behind to. stock several libraries. Pictures and knick-knacks with which the tents aro decorated before tho rush cornes, aro abundant. Family pictures and belongings of a personal character are carefully preserved in little bags to be returned to Uieir owner or his family ifxlbut is possible. Besides restoring articles for use, every scrap of wool cloth, leather, metal, hat-bands, is saved to bo' turned into some other form of useful article or Is sold. Tho sale of Junk, tin cans and scraps last month netted 18,400 francs. ' The women workers are chiefly French and Belgian, many of them refugees from the Invaded districts, so that the work has this further useful aid for some 4,000 women. They get from 6 to 7 francs a day, working from 7 to 11:30 and from 1:30 lo C. The wages paid last month wore 71!,400 francs. But all the cost of wages and new/material was less than ten percent of v the value of the articles produced for army uses, totaling $2,500,000 for the month—atribute to^ the ingenuity which has produced this unique establishment of war economy.
