Election May Straighten Kinks
When military law was declared recently la Berlin and the province
of Brandenburg recently, with Chancellor Von Papen placed m
command as dictator, it was halfcid as a step backward to M Junker"
ple in troubled Germany. Now martial law has been discontinued
nd promises given that the relchstag election Sunday will not
be interfered with. Von Papen took over the duties of Otto Braun,
premier of Prussia, and President Von Hindenburg appointed
General Von Rundstedt commandant under the martial law edict.
Many observers saw this development as a victory for Adolf Hitler,
fascist leader, as it quelled the agitators who had treated his
"Xari" troops roughly in political rioting.

Any advances for relief made
