FOURTH* BLVTHUV1LLE, (AKK.) COURIER NKW» , NOVEMBER *7, IMt West German Rearmament Opponents Score Big Gains in Bavarian Elections MUNICH, Germany, Nov. 2T. (*)* —W*»t Germany's Socialists—bitter opponents of German rearmament for Western defense—scored big gain* today In Bavarian state election*. With returns still Incomplete, the Socialist were running a .strong second to the pro-rearmament Christian Democrats In the balloting yesterday for members of the State parpllament. Th« surprising Socialist showing in this traditionally conservative state was certain to be interpreted as a third protest vote within a week by German voters against rearmament. Hesse and Wurttemberg-Badin rolled up Socialist victories on Nov. 19 In elections widely regarded as a slap at the Christian Democrats, who control the federal government, for their support of German rearmament. Federal Chancellor Konrad 'Adenauer, the Christian Democrats' leader, already has agreed to take West Germany Into the projected Western defense system. He must c'ntaln approval fron the Federal Parliament, however. Bavaria has been a Christian Democratic stronghold since 1910. In the election that year, the party received more than 60 per cent of all votes. Kearmament Only Issue This year the socialists challenged the Christian Democrats in Bavaria solely on the rearmament issue. They argued that the Germans should refuse to take up arms again until they have full independence and enough allied troops in Germany to repel any Soviet attack. -.'••' , The Christian Democrats countered that the danger of Soviet aggression was imminent and ' therefore Germany should not de- Jay in agreeing to rearm. At 9:30 a.m. (3:30 a.m. EST) the still incomplete returns showed this .vote. Christian -Democrats, 1,801,455 (29.1 per cent of the total). Socialists, 1.647,531 (25.8). Bavarian Party (pro-rearmament), 1,193,899 (18.0). Refugees (anti-rearmament, 896,584 (14). Free Democrats (pro-rearmament), 418,819 (6.6). Economic Reconstruction party (anti-rearmament), 138.730 (2.2). Communists (anti-rearmament), [13.083 (1.5). Seven splinter parties had polled about two per cent of the votes. ; It was estimated that some 4,000,- 1936 1938 1940 1942 1944 1946 1948 1950 > EST ADMINISTRATION'S PROFIT PICTURE-The proposed new four billion dollar excess profits tax being presented by the administration is expected to liven up the "lame duck" session of Congress. The Nc\vsc'nart above shows corporation profits from 1936 to 1950 before and after taxes. Estimate for 1950 under the present tax set-up shows corporations are expected to make 37 billion dollars profit, of which 15 billion would go lor taxes. Figures on Newschart arc from statement matte by Treasury Secretary Snyder before the House Ways and Means Committee. 000 persons voted, a heavy turnout. Each voter, however, cast two ballots—for both county and dtst- rict representn lives in parliament. That Indicated that about three- fourths of the ballots had been counted, Great Significance * The three pro-rearmament parties held a combined total of almost 100,000 votes more than the vote for the four anti-rearmament groups. Btit the sharp upsurge of Socialist strength in this Catholic conservative state was of great political significance, indoicating public resentment against the Christian Democrats' rearmament policies. In every previous Bavarian election since the war the Christian Democrats have easily out-distanced the other parties, The Socialists are certain to hall their strong showing in Bavaria as a further vote of no confidence in Adenauer's federal government. After the Hesse and wuerttem- berg-Baden elections, they stepped up their campaign for new national elections to decide the question of their rearmament. The Chancellor hns resisted the demand, contending that the present parliament Is competent to decide the issue. The Socialist victories in Hesse and Wuerltemberg - Baden are known to have strengthened the anti-rearmament forces In the Federal Parliament. The Bavarian results may complicate further the job of pushing rearmament through parliament. The Bavarian election also mark' ed the emergency of the nationalistic, anti-Western refugees as a major political forces In the slate. The Refugees, running a strong fourth, probably will gain a voice in the formation of a new stale government to replace th'e present Christian. Democratic regime. American officials during the Bavarian campaign expressed concern over the anti-Western tone of the refugee candidates. Nickname 'Windy'? BURLINGTON, Vt., Nov. 27.
