Otherwise tic ixiliUeal situation under which the conservative von Pairen rules over the voice of a defiant but shackled Reichstag remained almost unchanged. It wa« in every way a deadlock and the country awaited an oven more embittered struggle between von Papen and Hitler for power. Germany voted overwhelmingly against the von Papen government despite Its minor gains. The Hit- lerites, although they lost 35 seats in parliament, actually fell only four per cent behind their vote in the total poll throughout the country compared with the re.sull of the last election. Provisional final returns for 531 scats in the Reichstag gave the Hit- lerites 195 .seats: Social Democrats, 125; Communists. 100; Catholics 09: Nationalists. 51; Bavarian Peoples party, 19: Polks parly, n, and the remainder scattered among numerous parties.
