By RALPH HEINZEN, United Press Staff Correspondent. PARIS, March 7.--The world tour of the Graf-Zeppelin, the successful maneuvers of the British-built R-100 and the plans of American firms for tfhe construction of super-dirigibles haTo not convinced the French Air Ministry of the practicability at utility oJ dirigibles. M. Laurent Bynac, minister of air, told the United Press that France was not going to waste money on their construction until other na- tiond had gone through costly experiments. The French Air Ministry sees only commercial utility for dirigibles today and no laud military value whatsoever, in viaw of the superior speed and climbing power of fighting airplanes and only a very slight naval military value as eyes of t'he fleet far at sea. At any rate, the budget of the French Air Ministry for 1930 does not contain a cent for dirigible experiments. Tha government. In fact, has no dirigible policy, and has had none since the Dixmude, turned over to Franco by Oormany after the war, exploded and was lost over the Mediterranean with her crew. Drigiblef cost 4ft.OiOO.OW to 50,000,000 francs each, and can be destroyed for a dollar, with a handful of incendiary bullets that, can be pumped Into her by hven a clumsy commercial plane upon which a. machine gun could be mounted," an official of the air ministry said. "The "World "War proved conclusively that dirigibles were no match for airplanes or for anti-aircraft artillery on th ground. The German records show a very high proportion of losses for the few dirigibles that were sant out to bomli Paris or London. Seven Zeppelins in one night-bombing x- p3dition on I/ondon were brought down by siorms iu France and Belgium." Small dirigibles, not Zeppelins of tho gize of the Graf, are -still told indispensable for use with naval floots. They are more easily maneuvered than airplanes far at sea, and can operate much slower than planes, so as not to rnn ahead of the cruisers. The French navy has several small dirigibles, but no more are to be built for the present. France IK watching with interest, however, the experiments in Germany, England, Italy and the United Status. Sho spends nothing but make* notes of all the faults which those other powers discover after having spent millions of dollars. She puts all her lessons together and when the ULIO is ripe, she will build dirigibles. LITTLE FLOWER NOVENAS MAR. 9 FOR RELIGION IN RUSSIA NEW YORK, March 7--Tie Rev. Albert H. Dolan, 0.
