Le Blanc, Far Ahead, Forced to Make
Perilous Descent When Fuel
New York, Oct. 29.-Claude Gra

Aero Club of the United Kingdom,
lifted the Gordon Bennett interna
tional speed trophy from the custody
*f America today In the fastest time
ior the full distance of 100 kilometres
(61 1-4 miles) around a five kilo
metre course. His average speed was
a fraction better than 61 miles an
hour and his fastest lap was two
minutes, 55.77 seconds, but the cap

a 100 horse power Bleriot monoplane,
-was making each lap no an average
*f 20 seconds faster than Grahame
White and would have w nothe cup if
he had not met with a disastrous ac-;

the race seemingly well in hand.
His first lap was a new world's
'record in itself for five kilometres-2
minutes, 45.63 seconds-but he ex

Was Well Ahead.
Te Blanc was running before the
wind under full power at an estimated
.peed of 80 miles an hour when the
leed pipe from his gasoline tank to
his motor loosened under the Inces

suddenly found himself with nothing
but momentum to carry him. Le

when a puff of wind caught him he

The pole was 14 inches thick but
'he broke it In three pieces as if it had

steel shield which enclose the motor
were completely crumpled, but the

difficult to see how he could have

Every One Sorry.

kamriaWhi-te, the wiine4, ad1mitted
that Le Blanc would have won the
race and would have established a
-world's record even better than his
own except for his mishap. Charles
K. Hamilton of 'the American team
was enthusiastic: .
"Le Blanc is the best track driver
in the world," he said. "The way he
-took those turns was a marvel. Gra
bame-White would never have been
i it except for Le Blanc's accident
and no American machine had a
bhance with him. I am going to
throw my macihine into the scrap
.heap and buy a Bleriot before I leave
this track. The biplane is out of date
and we might as well admit it."
Hamilton will challenge for the cup
next year. The Wright brothers will
