Berlin, May 31 (4P) America's good faith toward disarmament is questioned by those Berlin morning newspapers commenting on Presi dent Coolldge's Memorial Day speech. All tha papers publish copious extracts from the speech but only three take editorial notice of it. The Taegllche Rundschau declares the President s remark that Amerl can arms are employed only in the Interests of liberty "Is but too patently refuted, by the Treaty of Versailles and post-war European developments." His observations about . arma ments, it adds, "show plainly how little In earnest are the guardians of liberty and justice about the limitation of armaments solemnly proclaimed at Versailles. ' Mailed Fist Seen. "High sounding words about dls armament," the paper continues. "may be reduced in essence to the formula: 'Wash my fur, but don't make me wet. The Boersen Zeltunt aavs: "Out of - the smoke screen of hvnoc rlsy and sanctimoniousness, there emerges quite clearly visible tho mailed fist of the egotistical real politlk policy of realities) with which the United States are paving their way brutally and unldeallstlc- aiiy In the world. "In Coolldge's case, too, the layer or beautiful phrases Is becomtna constantly thinner and more trans parent. The Tageblatt says: "Mr. Coolidge again has succeeded In balancing arguments so cleverly that prac tically each faction got what It want ed. From the German standDoint the remark is especially Interesting that the United States has always conducted war for just cause, in de fense of the principles of liberty."

He flushed and for a st-rond hesitated as to what he should say next, hut another handshake from the King soon put him at his ease. Then they sat down, and Ltndy told the King how it was done, talking in a most natural and enthusiastic manner. The King was enthusiastic, too. George V doesn't care much for flying himself in fact he never has been In the air but he is a sportsman, and he is a hero worshipper Just like even-one else. . His kindly eyes twinkled a the American boy related some of his experiences, and he was seemingly taken by Lmdy's happy wav of mak-lng his points clear. The King chuckled time and again at his visitor's lively animated manner of relating certain incidents. Crowd Outside Palace. The flier arrived at Buckingham Palace a few mlnutea aheda ot schedule, coming from Downing Street, where he was received by Premled Baldwin., to whom he also related some of the most Interesting details of his flight and subsequent experiences.

When he alighted at the privy purse door and the American color on the chauffeur's uniform were noticed, the spectators recognised him. There waa cheer after cheer, and men even raised their hats, while the women and children outside the yard gates screamed themselves hoarse as the hero disappeared into the King's household. Lindbergh was attired in a dark worsted, pin-striped suit for his au dience. The King, and Counselor Sterling w ere In morning costume. Meets Princes Elisabeth. Several palace officials were as sembled In the vestibule to greet the American as he entered. At thia moment. Captain Lindbergh noticed a babe in the arms of a uniformed nurse.

Lindbergh was with the Kins; Just 20 minutes, and It is understood he did his share of the talking, although his Royal host showed much curiosity about some of his experiences and asked numerous questions. Only a few minutes elapsed after the audience began before the King bestowed the Air Force Cross upon the aviator. It was noticed that Lindbergh did not wear It when he left but carried It In its case, mucn to the disappointment of the crowd ot photographers awaiting mm. King to See Him at Derby. King George, like most English men, had the Derby much in mind today, and his parting words to Captain Lindbergh were that he would see the airman with Lord Lonsdale at Epsom tomorrow. The Klnir asaea capiain wna bergh If he had attempted to pick the Derby winner. Lindbergh re-niiAri that horse racing was entirely out of his line of guesswork and that he could not even say wnat !mnu won the Kentucky Derby. Soon after Lindbergh's departure the King left by motor for the open ing of the racing at r.psom. on me same course where the Derby will be run tomorrow. Shakes Princess' Hand. After taking leave of the King, Lindbergh descended the stairs to the equerrys room, wnere ne re mainerf for some time chatting with Sir Charles Cust. the equerry. Dur ing their talk they exchanged auto ffrfi nhs. Finally, glancing at hia wrist watch, Lindbergh remarked that It was about time he was at York House to visit the Prince of Wales. As he started to leave with Mr. Ster ling, he again encountered the Baby Princess Elizabeth. This time, the airman, walking across the vestibule, took her little hand and shook tt, much to the delight of the nurse. Then he patted the princess' cheek and chucked her under the chin, and upon leaving he again took her tiny chubby Angers in his great haads and snook mem tenderly. As he turned to go he was sur rounded by members of the palace household, all eager lor auiograpn which he gave until his fountain pen ran dry. Visits Prince of Wales. Then he proceeded to Tork House, St. James Palace, only a few minutes away. The Prince of wales, , whom he was to visit, had taken part In the rehearsal for ths King a birth day trooping ot the colors on th Horse Guards parade, part of which ceremony Lindbergh and Mr. Ster ling witnessed while with Premier Baldwin and his family on tne Dai cony of 10 Downing st.

Tribute From Sir Samuel. A striking tribute to the flier's arlng skill and adventurous spirit as paid by Sir Samuel. Surely Captain Lindbergh's wonderful ex perience in crossing the Atlantic, lie said, was not only a greet testimony to his skill as a navigator but was lso a lesson of value in the study of aerial navigation. "The peoples of many countries are applauding Captain Lindbergh's enlevement, the Air Minister con tinued, "not so much because some material gain will be obtained in this or that way, but because it ts fine example of nerve anco endur- nce. of skill and courage and of enterprise and adventure. The more drab the world becomes, the more gladly we welcome such splendid achievements as his." Sir Samuel congratulated Captain Lindbergh upon the bestowal of the Air Force Cross, saying that Sir Alan Cobham and -all the other wearers of the Cross would be proud to have the American filer among their number. The decoration is one of the most highly prized- by aviation pilots. An Exclusive Club. Telling of Captain Lindbergh's career and his membership In the Caterpillar Club," Sir Samuel told of the activity and constitution of this organization of filers who have escaped death by parachute Jumps. Jt Is the moBt exclusive club in the world, but is one not everybody desires to join by any means," he remarked. Declaring that Captain Lindbergh s flight constituted a world record and laced him in the foremost rank ot ir Dioneers. Sir Samuel continued For courage and enterprise and for high adventure there are no national frontiers. A great feat and a fine achievement transcend national boundaries as completely as an air plane passes unhindered over fron tiers and peoples. vve oner mm therefore today as sincere congratulations from Britain as any that he will receive from his fellow country men in the United States. We take special interest in the flight, owing to the achievement oi aicock ana Brown. ' The British Air Minister then paia tribute to the memories of captains Nungeseer and Coll.

They stimulate progress," ne said, "they test reliability, is It not of value to the technical progress o aviation that a aingte air-cooled en gine of 22 horsepower, consuming only 10- gallons of gasoline hourly should have traveled more than 8,600 miles and' have been fit tot another lap at the end of it?" Toasting the American men health, the Air Minister said: "I ask you to drink to the health of Captain Lindbergh as a world record breaker and as a worthy represen latlve of our close friends and war allies, the pilots of the United States. Still more, however, do 1 ask you to drink his health as a young man who embodies the spirit of adyen ture and lights up thu world with flash of cournge and daring and, am glad to say. of success.'
