More registered voters recorded their approval of Hitler's foreign policies in yesterday's reichstag election than there are men, women and children in all France. It was indicated strongly that this backing by his countrymen and women would be reflected in his proposals for settlement of the Rhineland problem with which Joachim von Ribbentrop, his special ambassador, is expected to fly to London tomorrow. These proposals, it was forecast, will present to Great Britain, France, Belgium and Italy a broad plan for consolidation of European peace on a firm, permanent base. But it was forecast also that Hitler will be even less inclined now to accept any'terms to which he will not be able to point with pride to Germans. Provisional final returns in yesterdays' election for reichstag members actually a vote in favor of Hitler's reoccupation of the demilitarized Rhineland zone and his scrapping of the repressive military clauses of the Versailles treaty were as follows: !

It was Bruno Richard Hauptmann's shroud. The suit, a type usually issued to discharged and paroled prisoners, cost the state about $10. At present Hauptmann wears a pajr of prison-gray pants, a white shirt, and a pair of bedroom slippers. His death chair attire will be the same clothes he has on today. The trouser leg will be slit and the shirt unbuttoned. - Hauptmann will be clad in the new suit after death. He is unaware that it has been selected. At the prison, which is encircled by a high red brick wall, preparations went forward for the execution. The prison electrician was called from his routine work to test the chair. He took a board about four feet long, with large electric sockets attached to it, and laid it across the arms of the chair. Huge electric bulbs were screwed into the sockets. Wires from the board were connected with the death switch. The current was turned onv The bulbs threw out a brilliant light. This indicated the chair -was in perfect working condition. But the electrician wasn't satisfied. He got down on his knees ;ind checked every electric wire leading into the death chamber. His orders were to see that there had been no tampering with the single wire that supplies the death dealing electricity. Hauptmann was up earlier than usual today. He was restless and stood at the bars of his white painted cell. Just outside the death house was a guard. Usually one man with a machine gun stands watch. Today two guards were on duty.

Olympia, March 30. Washington closed its second year in the liquor business today with $20,-000.000 in total liquor sales and $5,635,000 in profits. Forty-eight stores and 125 agencies supply the thirst of Washington's million and a half residents, who spent an average of $13.33 on liquor since the first state stores opened. About one out of six persons hold a liquor store permit. Washington's liquor business is more than double that of the Oregon liquor commission. The Oregon commission celebrated its second anniversary February 13, with $10,000,000 gross revenue to $22,500,000 for Washington, this despite the fact Washington liquor is cheaper.
