GENEVA, Feb. 14.—(UP).—
The French placed new obstacles
before the general commission of
the world arms parley yesterday
when Joseph Paul-Boncour an
nounced it would be impossible
for them to limit the size of their
tanks or artillery until they know
what type of European armies
would use them.
His announcement wag regard
ed as an effort to force the con
ference to accept the French
scheme for unification of Euro
pean armies, or at least strong cj..
ordination in a European police
force arrangement.
Paul-Boncour pointed to the
semi-official military organizations,
in Germany and Italy as a menace
to this co-ordination of forces, or
limitation of armies as such. His
remarks threw the commission in
to a heated discussion which pro
ceeded amid an atmosphere of in
creasing gloom for the success of
the arms meeting.
The chief German delegate, Bn
don Rudolph Nadolny, opposed*
discussion of making all European
armies uniform in strength and
equipment before the extent of
reduction of aggressive weapons
had been decided. The German
attitude, incidentally, has stiff
ened remarkably since Adolf Hit
ler was named chancellor.
