Berlin A member of the German
parliament, who for nearly ten years
has been connected with the army
budget committee of the Reichstag
tells some interesting things of the
history of the now famous 42 centi
meter siege guns which served the
Germans so effectively at Liege and
"The surprise that Germany pos
sessed Buch mortars," he says, in an
article published in the Neue Zuercher
Zeltung, "was as great in Germany as
it was in other countries. After com
pletion of secret tests with these guns
some time ago, nd the decision of the
government to order a number of them.
it was a problem as to how to keep the
matter a secret. '
"Over forty officers took part In the
discussion at which the military bud
get was prepared for submittal to the.
budget committee of the Reichstag.
When a new clause was reached with
only the heading "Arms," the chief of
the new department of arms requested
that for the time being this subject
could not bo discussed. At the con
clusion of the conference he told me in
strict confidence that the title "Arms"
involved new siege mortars.
"The general staff requested urgent
ly that not a word be said of the mat
ter in the committee; not even the
officers present had any knowledge of
"Six weeks ago I visited an ammu
nition factory as a member of the arm
ament commission and ascertained
that any number of projectiles and
cases for these mortars could be pro
duced within a very short time. In
reply to my question whether these
mortars did not wear out rapidly, a di
rector of the company said 'There are
not enough fortresses in existence in
the whole world to wear out a single
mortar." As a matter of fact our
army possesses 3,000 mortars of an
earlier date, which are still usable."
The offical North German Ga ette
also discusses these new mortars wkh
special reference to their projectiles.
It says: i
"If a weapon of the German army
has a claim to popularity it is the 42
centimetre mortars which in spite of
their huge dimensions have managed
to remain concealed. In fact, the nick
name 'Drummer,' which has been giv
en to these mortars shows how far
this popularity has progressed. One
cannot be astonished that a shot
which hurls with accuracy a weight of
eight hundred weight over a space of
a Gjrman mile to its goal causes an at
mospheric pressure which for miles
around hurls everything into the air.
Reports have shown that the projec-j

German strategists insist that the

German fleet, as it gives another en.
trance from the North s?a to fie Baltic
and forces an enemy to scatter its
strength in order to bottle up the German-warships.
