Despite weather reminiscent of win- ter, culminating with sleet Sunday evening, Frederick hotels, small Inns end tourist bouses experienced their best week-end of the current year, with practically all available rooms taken Saturday night, it was learned Sunday evening. The Francis Scott Key hotel, this city's largest hostelry, was forced to turn away gusts Saturday night. The hotel was experiencing another busy day Sunday. Hotel Frederick was also crowded Saturday night, as well as the two previous nights, and had a good nous? Sunday night. The increased business was attri- buted largely to the blooming of the -cherry blossoms" in Washington, which annually attracts a huge crowd from many states.

Official figures stopped about mid- night when the Nazis' lead of 80 per cent, began to drop. Senate officials had promised final results every 15 minutes. The vote announced for the other parties was: Social Democrats, Com- munists, Centrists, Ger- man Nationalists, Front, Fight- ers, 750; Polish, The Nazis, after a campaign similar to the ones in the Soar Plebiscite, claimed better than a two-thirds ma- jority of approximately votes when the 187 polling places closed at 6 o'clock. That would give them absolute political control of this league-mandated city. Heated passions aroused by the campaign ware held within bounds tut Socialists said several of their men recently had been beaten up. A two-thirds majority would have permitted the Nazis to alter the free city's constitution so as to abolish op- position parties. Any change, how- ever, must be approved by the Coun- cil of the League cf Nations. The election was to choose rep- resentatives to the Volkstag or Lower House of the Free City's parliament, Trhich was dissolved by command of the Nazis last February. There were seven parliaments on the ballot. Mora than 90 per cent, of the 000 eligible voted, officials estimated. Seven thousand voters were brought by Nazis from abroad.
