FRANCE GIRDS TO BATTLE FOR U-BOAT FLEET Nation Never Will Permit Submarine Abolition, Deputies Declare. BY STEWART BROWN rjnftrd Press Staff Correapondrnt PARIS, Dec. 20.—France s deter mination to reject ali proposals at the London naval disarmament con ference for abolition of the subma rine and her insistence that she must be left free to set the limits of her own nav'al needs was re vealed clearly in the first day’s de bate on the 1920 naval budget. The budget reporter, Jacques Dumesnil, opened the debate with the assertion that the interdepen dence of naval, land and air arma ments should dominate the London discussions. He compared France’s tonnage with that of the United States and Great Britain, conclud ing that France had a right to a much large- navy in view of her colonial routes. He pointed out that Britain, in addition to her navy, possesses a merchant marine capable of imme diate conversion to fighting craft. “Abovo all," Dumesnil said, “it is necessary that France deliberately reject all propositions at London for abolishment of the submarine.” Marine Minister Georges Leygues Interrupted, shouting: / “France never will agree to abo lition of the submarine." Dumesnil demanded that London study Germany’s construction of the new supertype cruisers, which are claimed far to outdistance France’s new cruisers in speed and arma ment. Paul Boncour followed the bud get reporter on the speaker’s plat form and stated that France was entering the London conference with a troubled spirit because of anglo- American naval understandings based on the assumption that other naval powers would seek parity ac cords with their rivals to which France never could consent, espe cially in regard to a parity agree ment with Italy.
