The unofficial vote count on a government motion of confidence was 335 against the government and 210 ballots in its favor.

Nearly 12 hours after the capa- city-laden DC-4 last reported Its position over the eastern edge of lakes, a Coast Guard destroy- er-escort found oil bubbling to surface. Captain George Parkinson, whose craft, the U.S.S. Daniel A. Joy, found the oil bubbles six and fourth miles east ol south Milwau- kee, said bits of paper were floatinj to the surface with oil. The water, 66 feet deep, was too murky to permit a view of what lay under its surface. But prepara- tions were made to send a diver to the lake bottom. Northwest Airlines said grappling irons dragged in the murky water by a Coast Guard boat had struck something believed to be plane wreckage. Indications that the aircraft had been found appeared so strong, that officials at the air line left their St. Paul, Minn., headquarters for Milwaukee to be on hand for further probins of the depths.
