Hospital officials reported that he was to undergo diagnostic tests. His condition was described as good. By Nick J. Podgurski An addition of eight votes to Bennett Abrams' column in District One changed the election of the Town of Massena Supervisor completely around giving Abrams victory instead of a defeat which had been previously announced. Republican Bennett Abrams won the election by four votes, 3,032 to Democrat Councilman Charles Smith's 3,028 who was making his first bid for the top post in the Township of Massena. In losing Smith will still retain his councilman's position. . Initially the tabulation of the 15 districts of the township showed that Smith had won the election by four votes. There was happiness among the Democrat workers who were watching a big board in the auditorium of the \READY BUILT\ STONE FIRE- PLACES ON SALE! .n • Easy installation by the do-it- yourselfer within one hour!

Sometime later, however, it was noted that a change was to be made in District One. Supervisor Abrams was given eight more votes, enough to swing the Supervisor election conv pletely around. Even then, some 90 minutes after the election was over, no one knew for sure if the four vote count would hold in Abrams favor. Election inspectors take down the machine figures once the polling district has been officially closed. Both parties_check the tabulations on an official sheet. Meanwhile both.parties have their own workers stati^nf.d at. the various districts and they relay the vote tally to their headquarters. There was considerable delay in the final tabulation of District 14, the V.S. . Jerry polling place, which includes the Highland Nursing Home. Over 100 absentee ballots had to be counted, many of them nursing home residents. Who said the 18 year old vote was going to swing the election? District 14 results came in after 10 o'clock and with Abrams getting 221 to Smith's 198, the final results showed that Smith had won by four votes at that time. Smith was termed the winner until a double check of all of the vote count was made. Town Clerk Doris Clement was posting the official figures and electric adding machine them in her office. Even after Abrams was declared the apparent winner when the mistake in' the initial tally was noted in Distric 1, the official sheets for three distr had yet to be counted. The suspense on both sides mounted. Republican workers who manned telephones from Jack's Hideaway owned by Carl Serabian, former Town Republican chaiirman, had learned earlier that Smith was the winner by four votes until he was notified of the change in District One. \Abrams won!!\ Serabian ushered in the good news. Bedlam broke out among the workers. Military ballots have yet to be counted? Someone questioned. A number of hurried telephone calls were made for clarification. It was learned that absentee ballots could be obtained until Oct. 26. They had to be returned to the Board of Elections by 12 noon Nov. 1. On military .ballots the ruling was that anyone in service could obtain an application for a military ballot until Oct. 21. The count, military ballots must be received by the Division for Servicemen's Voting in Albany by noon the day before the general election. Those had been included in the vote count. That meant that all votes were in. Republicans breathed a bit easier. There is only the chance of a change now; human error in transferring the machine count to the official ballot by the inspectors of both parties.

I believed that I was helping to shape our government and elect our future leaders. When the time drew closer, I began to change my mind. How can there be a good election when there is only one candidate? I've heard speeches as well as complaints about the dangers of no choice in can- didates, and yet when I went to the polling place this morning, there wasn't even a contest. What was worse, I couldn't,even cast a write-in ballot to provide a little competition. I am very very disappointed, as a voter, not only because of a one-sided election in a few cases, but more so because one party wasn't interested enough to find a capable candidate, because one party didn't have enough enthusiasm to put up a good fight, and because one party didn't care enough to contact personally those of its own party to be sure to vote. I for one was never asked to support anybody. If more people feel as I do, then many of the younger people will do as their elders - not even bother to vote Morristown - Elaine Johnson, daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. Roy Johnson, has won Bauseh and Lomb or v ° te f ° r the P ar ty that at least cares.
