The lagrangian of gluodynamics does not contain dimensional parameters. As a consequence, there emerges an infinite set of Ward identities connecting n-point functions induced by the operator σ = θμμ, where θμv stands for the regularized energy-momentum tensor. We construct an effective (tree) lagrangian which includes one scalar meson field and saturates automatically all the Ward identities.
