The overthrow of the cabinet came after an impassioned plea from Flandin for power to forestall financial panic—a plea that was rejected by the chamber on a vote of confidence. The deputies denied the premier their confidence by a vote of 353 to 202 after Flandin had fainted from the strain of his personal plea for support in fighting speculators.

Petillo was pressed to the limit to win his spurs with Wilbur Shaw of Indianapolis making a valiant effort to pass the coast ! comet in the late stages of the race. The winner, piloting a four- cylinder rear-drive Gilmore Speedway Special, was approximately forty seconds- ahead of Shaw who was at the wheel of a four-Cylinder front-drive Pirrung Special. It was the second time the Indianapolis man came roaring over the electric | timing wire in the' runner-up position, the first being in 1933.| Shaw'as well as Pe- tillOj broke the former record of; Bill Cummings, also of this city, who won. with an average of 104.863 miles an hour a'year ago and itook third prize this time. Except for the fact that rain interfered with the gruelling bat- jtle of cylinders for a number of laps after 450 miles had been reached and! the drivers were forced to run under the caution flag, the winner's average would have been more remarkable still.
