PAGE TWO (ARK.) COUKTER NEWS WEDNESDAY, APRIL M, 19BI OubernatoriV Foes Picked In New Jersey Troost Wins GOP Nomination; Meyner Leads* Democrats By JAMES P. HACKETT - NEWARK. N. J. (*^—Businessman Paul L. Troast is the Republican nominee for governor today and it looks as if lawyer Robert B. Meyner will be his Democratic opponent in New Jersey's significant November election. Troast, 58-year-old chairman of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority who never before had run for political office, won handily by more than 50,000 votes over State Sen Malcolm S. Forbes in yesterday's primary. The Democratic rnce—first of Us kind in more than 30 years— was close right down to the finish line. With only 137 of the state's 3,957 election districts missing, Meyner held a slim 3,163 majority over 61-year-old Vineland chick raiser Elmer H, Wene. Meyner shied away from claiming victory and Wene would not concede defeat. Wene hinted to a reporter he would seek a recount. Meyner, 44, went into the contest with the blessing: of Mayor John V. Kenny of Jersey City and onetime boss Frank Hague in 1949. Wene lost to Republican Gov. Alfred E. Drlscoll in 1949. Driscoll did not seek a third term and did not endorse any candidate for the Republican nomination. Unofficial returns from 3,856 of the state's 3,957 districts gave Troast 208.197 votes to 153,303 for Forbes. Returns from 3,820 districts gave Meyner 107,042 votes to 103.87B for Wene. New Jersey's November election is expected to draw national attention as the first big test for the Republicans since Eisenhower won the presidency. The only other state electing a governor this yenr is Virginia, where the Democrats have a firm grip. Troast went into the primary contest with the support of most of the state's 21 Republican county leaders. Forbes, 33-year-old magazine executive, was supported outright only by the Somerset County organization, his home group. Also in the primary yesterday were five other Republicans and two other Democrats. They received only scattered votes.
