Must and Will Succeed In
Winning Them for Na.
tional Socialism, He
Sunday’s “No” Vote More
Than Twice Number Cast
Last November; Also
Greater Than jn Reichstag
Vote; 35 Major Districts
Increase Opposition
Berlin, Aug. 20. (/P)—Adolf Hitler
today took cognizance of the one out
of ten votes in opposition in yester
day’s plebiscite, with tned eclaration:
“We must and wll succeed in win
ning over the last 10 per cent of the
people for national socialism”.
Hitler thanked the Nazis for “yes
terday’s glorious victory, for which all
sections have done marvelous work”.
“We shall,” he declared, “carry on
with fresh courage. We must and
shall succeed in winning over the last
ten per cent of the nation for national
socialism. That will re our last and
crowning victory".
Berlin, Aug. 20. f^PV—Germany has
given Adolf Hitler a 30,000,000 vote
“ja”. .
The Sunday’s one-m»u election,
called to let the people say by ballot
if they approv’d Chanecllor Hitlr’s ac
tion in making himself upon the death
of President von Hindenbrug as presi- i
dent, too, the vote was:
“Ye5’'—38,362,760; “n0”—4,294,654;
Some see in these preliminary of
ficial figures a waning in enthusiasm
for Hitler pointing out that yester
day’s “no" votes were more than twice
the number as were cast in last No
vember’s plebiscite. Attention is also
called to the sharp decline in the
volume of Nazi party votes as com
.pajod with the November voting.
In the November plebiscite, there
were 43,453.000 “ja" votes.
In the November Reichstag vote the
Nazi vote was 43,453,000.
With but few exceptions the 35
major voting districts produced in
yesterday's election fewer “ja” votes
than were cast in November. Some
observers sees this as a failure of the
German voters to respond to the ap
peal of Nazi orators during the past
few days that a large affirmative
vote be cast so that the woHd might
know the nation is solidly behind
President-Chancellor Hitler.
