SMASHES AIR RECORDS
Jules Vedrines, master of the'
air, smashed all previous Mordon
Bennett speed records at Clearing
' The great French airman com
pleted the 124.8 mile race in 1
hour, 10 minutes, 56.85 seconds.
His average speed was 105J4
miles an hour. At times he was
going 120 miles an hour.
Maurice Prevost was to be the
next man to take the air. Pre
vost put off his jace until late be
cause of the dangerous condition
of the air. The blazing sun had
caused many air-pockets.
Prevost is really the only com
petitor for the cup against Ve
drines. From the American
standpoint, the race is a fizzle.
The defender, which-was talked
of so much, was withdrawn yes
terday, and AmericaVas left with
no machine that could reach 50
miles an hour to compete against
the French wizards.
