Body Will Be Well Constructed Ship
Fit To Weather Ocean Waves If

(By Associated Press)
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany,
Nov. 28.-While the merits and
drawbacks of the Graf Zeppelin are
being discussed, the Dornier con-
struction plant on Lake Constance,|
an affiliation of the Zeppelin '
works, is quietly completing a sup-
per-plane for trans-Atlantic serv-
ice.
For months the construction of
this giant plane has been going on
with all the secrecy of war-time at
the shops of Altenrhein on the
Swiss side of the lake, from which
all visitors have been barred.
This new plane is not intended as
an actual enlargement of the Dor-
nier Superwals, but rather as a rev-
olutionizing type with which it is
hoped to solve the question wheth-
er the airship or the airplane is to
be the trans-oceanic conveyance of
the future.
The body of this plane is not a
boat but a substantially construct-
ed ship fit to weather the most
tempestuous ocean waves when it
may be found necessary to go down
on the water. It is built with mas-
sive walls and the interior is di-
vided into a series of :watertight
bulkheads to prevent the entire
ship frombeing flooded in caset
water is shipped.
