Berlin. June 2. (AP)—The possi

the new cabinet of Count Frans von
Papen waa eeen by some political ob
servers today.
These observers pointed out that
the aew cabinet which was framed
yesterday would in all likelihood be
unable to secure a vote of confidence
in the Reichscag if it were convened.
They predicted that President von

the legislature together, but would
continue to function under Article 48
of the constitution, which grants al
most autocratic powers in an emer
gency.
Repudiation of the cabinet by the
Centrist party, to which Count Von
Papen himself belongs, and by the
Bavarian peoples party last night waa
taken as indications of what the
Reichstag would do if a vote of non

A brisk breeze fanned the flames
and sparks were carried three-quar
