Much adverse criticism already has been di rected against the policy of allowing Germany lu build airplanes and dirigi bles for "commercial purposes," be cause of the fact that It would take Germany but a little while to convert these air craft to war use. Article 1S of the Treaty of Ver sailles provides' that the armed forces of Germany must 'not Include any mili tary or naval air forces and no dirigi ble balloons, airplanes, seaplanes or flying boats. The chief objection of the French and Italians to allowing Germany to make munitions of war Is that fchft would thus retain all the machinery necessary for the production of guns of all slies. They declare that It would be a most dlfllcult thing to guarantee that Germany would not divert the output of such plants to national use rather than export trade.
