rxr J .... f I. 4 1 ? - ,-.v - Robert Bratton (left) looks Thomas after Mr. Loughran's V 9 council. Both men are Republicans. Point Pleasant Beach Elects 2 GOP Rivals POINT PLEASANT BEACH Two Republicans who bitterly opposed each other during the election campaign were calling for harmony today; after winning Borough Council seats. Despite efforts by the Regular Republicans to form a coalition with one Democratic candidate, Councilman R. Dennis Swanson, a maverick Republican, and Thomas F. X. Loughran of the coalition won full terms. Mr. Swanson split with the GOP during the primary after contending party leaders had tried to tell him how to vote. Mr. Loughran led the ticket with 1,591 votes but Mr. Swanson, with 1,488 votes, was not far behind. Patrick A. Boylan, the Democrat supported by the coalition forces despite his own opposition to a fusion ticket, received 952 votes. His running mate, Edward S. Anisko, received 615 votes. In a race for a two-year unexpired term, Republican W. Robert Bratton defeated Democrat Edward A. Mahon, 1,512 to 792. .The election sharply reversed Republican fortunes here and, despite Mr. Swan-son's victory, the Republican Club was delighted. Three years ago, the Republicans lost the mayoralty, and last year they lost everything. "This is what we have been waiting for," rejoiced GOP Councilman James F. Malone. "We're on the right track again." Central issues in the three-way contest were a proposed high rise apartment project and a school regionalization plan twice rejected by voters this year. High rise apartments, overwhelmingly rejected by voters in a referendum last year, are being opposed again. This time, every candidate publicly opposed a plan for twin 17-story apartments adjacent to the Man-asquan Inlet. But most hinted their opponents favored it. The school proposal became an issue when the GOP charged the Point Pleasant Beach Civic Committee was backing the Democrats. The committee had spearheaded opposition to the regionalization effort.

And the splits which resulted added impetus to the doomed coalition effort. "The results are in and the 1 people have spoken," said Mr. Swanson last night. "I'm gratified for their support. It behooves all of us now to work together." He said the results were difficult to analyze but specu Democrats Break Republican Hold SEASIDE PARK - Democrats have captured one Borough Council scat and the tax collector's job in this normally Republican town.

The Democratic inroads came after a particularly active campaign in which the incumbents were criticized for failure to create a planning board. lakehurt winner ers balloted in a heavy turn out. v GOP's Landslide in County Tilts Dover Mayor's Chair DOVER TOWNSHIP -Two Republicans, clinging to a GOP landslide throughout Ocean County, have put the mayor's chair up for grabs next year. Mrs. Emma Frasicr, a retired secretary, and Alexander Haak, a customer relations manager, clearly defeated Democrats Robert C. Barnctt Jr. and Charles F. Lewis in what was considered an upset victory in yesterday's Township Committee election. Despite the presence of Democratic freeholder candidate, Mayor Robert W. Brune, Mrs. Frasier polled 10,487 votes to lead the four candidates while Mr. Haak received 10,005 votes. Mr. Barnett wound up with 8,461 votes while Mr. Lewis got 8,314. A huge 83 per cent of the township's registered voters went to the polls. Ostensibly, Democrats still hold a 3-2 majority on the committee. But Committeeman Frederick V. Brochon, a maverick Democrat who has been at odds with Mr. Brune and Committeeman Ethel A. Zaun for some time, again has the deciding vote for the coveted mayor's chair. Mrs. Frasier and Mr. Haak will replace Committeemen Ernest A. Buhr, who won a freeholder's seat, and Franklin V. Fischer, Republicans who decided not to seek reelection this year. Mr. Bro-chon's vote could seat either of the committeemen-elect or himself as mayor, depending what coalition mght be formed. And for Mrs. Frasier, who fought the campaign without benefit of the traditionally dominant Republican organization here, the victory came as no surprise. Despite the lack of party backing, she didn't see it as an individual win. "It's not a victory for me," she said among jubilant supporters at her head-quarter's last night. "It's a victory for the entire Republican party." Mr. Haak, who has run unsuccessfully for a number of public offices as a Democrat and an independent, was dumbfounded by his first vic- tory in a general election. "It's unbelievable," was all he could say. . Fighting an uphill battle all the way, the pair defeats two organization -backed hopefuls in the spring prima-i ry. The Republican Club at that time speculated the reason was a confusing ballot cluttered with convention delegates. But Mrs. Frasier and Mr. Haak asserted all along they won the primary on their own merits. Mrs. Frasier, however, credited some of the general election victory to the top of the Republican ticket, President Nixon and Sen. Clifford P. Case, who won in New Jersey by wide majorities. "The top helped us a great deal," Mrs. Frasier said. "It shows people still believe in following party lines." For the Democrats, it was a crushing, unexpected defeat. Mr. Barnett explained his loss as the result of the Nixon-Case majority. "It was a Republican year all the way here," Mr. Barnett said. "People started with Nixon and went straight across the ballot. But I wish them luck." Mrs. Zaun and Mr. Brune appeared at Republican headquarters shortly after the final tallies were posted and congratulated the successful candidates. A meeting is planned shortly to discuss organizational issues. During the campaign there was no indication of a victory for either side. Mr. Barnett and Mr. Lewis consistently issued press releases, but the Republicans didn't use the media until the final stages. Facc-to-facc confrontations were minimal. Results from Holiday City, the lare senior citizens' voting bloc, were also somewhat of a surprise. Mrs. Frasier and Mr. Lewis both live there and residents were expected to split thoir tickets in an attempt to elect either or both. But Mrs. Frasier and Mr. Haak pulled decisive margins there. She received more than 900 votes and Mr. Haak got more than 700. Democrats only received about 400 Votes each in that section. Mrs. Frasier had predicted voters there wouldn't split the ticket, but Mr. Lewis had scid he thought thry would. The status of the controversial rent control ordinance also appears to be up in the air. Mr. Brune and Mrs. Zaun, staunch proponents, had hoped to push the measure through if either Mr. Barnett or Mr. lycwis were elected. But the Republicans, like Mr. Buhr and Mr. Fischer, opposed it during public Sc GOP Pace 38 W If;' "?ll:r " t"" - w utuvnMAvririvm a: a j""""'j; i I !

Mr. Forsythe, who was obviously helped by Mr. Nixon's presence on the ballot, said one of the first things he wants to do next year is work for legislation contained in a bill the President vetoed. He referred to an omnibus health and senior citizens bill which Mr. Nixon found inflationary. "There must be a way we can get part of that legislation in acceptable form," Mr. Forsythe said. In addition to the major party candidates, two other persons sought election in the " 6th District, but both fared badly.

With 77 per cent of the 914 voters going to the polls, Mr. Spickard polled 508 votes, 61 more than his GOP running mate, Mr. Griffith.
