Battle, a former U.S. I ambassador to Australia. " The count there, with 1.479 of 2,032 precincts tallied was "Holton 329,519, Battle 289,546. •'. Holton. a 46-year-old Roanoke attorney, won his second time put. He lost-a gubernatorial bid four years ago and spent a J>ig chunk of his time between elections organizing support for the Nixon presidential race. The President returned the favor. I* Both Virginia campaigners were considered moderates. And Holton outran the rest of the Republican ticket, meaning he Will serve his term with a Democratic lieutenant governor and state legislature. '! CabiH's victory over former Democratic Gov. Robert B. Meyner was a massive one, ending 16 years of Democratic state house rule. The count, with 3,974 of 5,081 districts reported Cahill With 1,143,323 votes, Meyner 739,789. In his victory statement, Cahill said he entered office with no commitments to any party or person. Republican chairman Morton, however, said the GOP victory was a response to Nixon's personal intervention. Morton said it also was "a hearty endorsement of President Nixon's tireless search for peace in Vietnam." A Democratic spokesman disagreed. Sen. Fred Harris, the party chairman, avoided comment. His spokesman said the Democratic organization did not consider the off-year elections a test of Nixon's national strength. The outcome of the nation's only special congressional election was thrown into confusion last night as voting machines were impounded in New Jersey's eighth district and the official verdict awaited a likely recount. State Conservation Commissioner Robert A. Roe, a Democrat, claimed victory on the basis of his organization's tabulation giving him a 759-vote margin. Republicans gave Roe 66,253 votes to 65,830 for their candidate, Gene Boyle, a political novice who refused to concede. The Republicans charged that a number of official voting machine tally sheets were missing. Elizabeth Smith, Passaic County's superintendent of elections, impounded 11 voting machines and later released all buf, four. She said she expected a recount in the four districts and added the outcome there probably would be crucial. A maverick Democrat, who broke with an old-line party organization, won city hall in Pittsburgh. Peter F. Flaherty rolled up a margin of nearly two-to-onc over Republican John K. Tabor to win election as mayor. Cahill won for the Republicans the last major industrial state still governed by a Democrat. Gov. Richard J. Hughes was ineligible for another term. Cahill, ranked with the progressive wing of the GOP, built his victory on a swell of independent votes after a campaign marked by exchanges of bitter personal accusations. Meyner had raised the Vietnam issue, criticizing the Nixon course and the President's election eve policy report, Cahill praised the message from the President who did an evening's campaigning for him Oct. 29. One of Lindsay's final campaign acts was a statement describing the Nixon Vietnam speech as a disappointment. He said it broke "no new ground, reported no new progress." "I've been opposed to the war from the beginning," Lindsay said. "It continues to drain our cities of much needed resources." While his rivals accused him of being soft on criminals, Lindsay had his own law and order reminders. In one of the television commercials which were a fixture of his smooth and expensive campaign, the mayor admitted a foulup in snow removal.during a February blizzard. "But I put 6,000 more cops on the streets," he went on, "and that was no mistake." me ~rr6 jatwu of \ 08 W.

More about Kummerlowe verdict slated tomorrow Continued from Page 1 /.,_,. , • • which portrayed the defendant as a monsteriand a beast." : He called the spectators in the courtroom representatives of the "morbid" segment of society. Although he stoutly insisted Kummerlowe . is innocent of Kimbro's death, Lee failed to contradict any "of, the evidence or testimony presented by the state and pleaded that the state's demand for the death penalty go unheeded. Prosecutor Dave Rosenthal, who .presented the final arguments in the trial, said: "I feel no remorse in asldng the death penalty because if there ever was a case where the death penalty should be, it is this case." Rosenthal said Kimmerlowe "gave no quarter to Harley Kimbro." '.'Why did he murder?" Rosenthal asked. "Because he coveted another man's wife/' The contention by Rosenthal was that Kummerlowe's motive was his desire for Kimbro's wife. Mary Kimbro, 33, and, Kummerlowe had worked together at AiResearch at one time and she testified at the preliminary hearing that she had been having intimate relations with ; Kummerlowe for five months. , However, her testimony was that she had rejected Kummerlowe's plea to leave her husband, whom she married last February after being his common law wife for several years. Lee, in his plea for Kummerlowe, pointed to the defendant's "42 years as a flawless citizen, a graduate of Yale Uni- versity as an engineer and an ordained minister." "A monster who has forfeited his right to live," retorted Rosenthal. Parts of Kimbro's dissected body were found in the rear of Kummerlowe's pickup truck camper when he was arrested last April. Other parts of the body were found in Phoenix canals. A key to Room 104 of the Desert Rose was found in Kummerlowe's pocket. Kummerlowe, crewcut, dressed in a dark blue suit, white tie and black shoes, was calm throughout the proceedings. He waved to friends following the hearing and was allowed to meet in a nearby room with his wife after the trial. Lee said that he will seek a mitigation hearing before Strand sentences Kummerlowe, if Kummerlowe is found guilty. More about $120,000 asked to aid probe Continued from Page 1 Regarding the economic planning and development department's request for a big budget increase "to make the de- payment fully effective," the budget director commented, "in my mind, it's going to be a tough one." His recommendations help form the basis of the governor's budget message to legislators, who have the final say on the size of agency budgets by appropriating money to fund them. The planning and development budget request seeks a state appropriation of $1.9 million next year, compared with $617,000 this year. The increase would include $237,000 to build and $183,000 to equip and staff Phoenix and Tucson airport welcome stations and two highway welcome stations at unspecified locations. The increased state funds also would give the department six more development workers and nine for administration, with bigger travel and entertainment allowances. To the state funds, the department expects to be able to add $1.3 million from the federal government to step up planning, with six more employes in that division. Bfore about >20.7 billion Pentagon budget c? O Coudtwed from Page 1 support of combat operations were dropped from the bill. —A 20 per cent reduction in the Defense Department's independent research fund voted by the Senate was reduced to 7 per cent, for a saving of about $40 million. The conference bill must now be approved by both the House and Senate before it goes to President Nixon for his signature. Then Congress will be able to take up the $70 billion defense appropriation bill, the largest single money measure of the fiscal year which is already nearly half over. The final form of the military measure also included initial authorization for a con- troversial project favored by Rivers — the "Freedom Fighter" or "Free World Fighter," a relatively inexpensive airplane that the United States would not use at all but sell to other countries. As finally drafted, the military authorization bill now totals $20.7 billion, compared with a revised Pentagon budget request of $21.9 billion; the Senate bill total of $19.9 billion, and the House bill total of $21.4 billion. There is no assurance, however, that the enabling appropriation bill will be as Targe. Stennis indicated that several controversial programs, including the $414 million worth of ships, might not be fi- nanced during this fiscal year. The Defense Department succeeded in rescuing the controversial main battle tank project, which is being conducted jointly with West Germany. The House had cut all such funds from the bill, but the conference report included $30 million for research and development and $20 million for production. Untouched by the conferees because it had cleared both 'houses in identical form was the authorization for development of a modified antiballistic missile system sought by Nixon and debated for weeks last summer by the Senate. Gray hearing is postponed A preliminary hearing for accused slayer Robert Gray, 31, former Phoenix police officer, was postponed Tuesday in South Phoenix Justice Court when Gray's attorney received court permission for a second lie detector test. Henry Florence, the defendant's lawyer, said he asked Justice of the Peace M. Ralph Jenkins for a second test because the first one was "inconclusive." Florence told the court the first test was given by someone not fully acquainted with all the facts in the case. Gray, of 2835 E. Van Buren, is accused of murder in the shooting death of a motel clerk in an attempted holdup Sept. 11 at the Kon Tiki Motel, 2634 E. Van Buren. The incident ended in a shoot-out involving Allen LePitre, 26, Gray's alleged accomplice, and Ray Nichols, a motel clerk. Gray appeared at the scene after the shooting. Le- Pitre and Nichols were fatally injured in the gun battle. — Advertisement • More Security With FALSETEETH While Eating, Talking .J&PIL 1 ?*"° ) K** W **** *<«»• *•»«• Jj*|h will came looee at drop Jurt »t the »«mj time.
