Selectman Chief Point Of Interest Beacon Falls Beacon Falsl voters today S.~K showing a little less interest in the town election than they did last year, according to a count of votes up to noon today. Nearly 1200 are eligible to vote. The noon vote today was about 300, compared to 351 last year and 372 in 1947. Less interest is expected to be shown this year due to the fact that First Selectman Frank Sem- plenski, (D) is unopposed by a Re- 'Ublican candidate. However, town fficers elected loday will serve or two year terms, rather than nc as in the past, due to the iew voting law passed this year iy the General Assembly and rati- ied by the town voters.

The Democrat^ c ticket was elected last year by a 36 vote majority, taking 491 votes vhile the Republican candidates re- eived 341. Observers predict that although Mr. Semplenski is running unopposed this year, he will still run .head of his party... Mr. Semplenski has increased his margin of victory each year since he was first elected with 441 votes n 1946. In 1947 his margin was ncreased to 570 and increased again last year to 567 voles.
