FRENCH FRONT, Dec 10. (Cor
respondence of The Associated
Press.) - The eppeltn bpgey has
been laid or, at Jeast. the major part
of its terrors have vanished,, since
reliable information shows tbe re
ported existence In Germany of great
armadas of these aerial dread-
naughts to have been absolutely
mythical. Altogether only just over
one hundred of these dirigibles have
been constructed . since the Ute
Count Zeppelin launched the first
one over Lak Constance.
Up to August. 1014. the total of
those built . bad numbered twenty-
five; since , hostilities began the two
great works at Frledrichshafen and
Staaken - have constructed between
seventy-five and eighty, prqbably
nearer the lower than tbe higher
figure. This means an average of
two per. month. As the meat! period
for the building of a Zeppelin is
known with certainty to be two
months, there most always have
been four new Irsbia on the stocks
at the same timet'
Most of the Zeppelins . launched
Into the air before the. war come t)
grief, thus leaving in the service of
the German army and navy a fleet
of less than a dozen when fighting
began. Since then nearly all the
dirigibles old and new have vfceen
handed over to the German navy,
which has used them for many kinds
of work, such as bombarding- ezpedi
small torpedo-boats at sea, chasing
suDmannes, searching for nine
