BrvmimU vote , Pa. (AP)•Judge Bernard C. Brominski, who presided at the recent hearings" into the proposed exhumation of Mary Jo Kopech- tte's body, won an overwhelming vote of confidence in Luzeme County last night. Brohiinski, 48, was one of a series of Pennsylvania judges seeking retention on a yes-no vote. With all but five of 408 precincts reporting in the county, the judge accumulated a total of 75.003 "yes" votes, against 9,517 "no" Votes. After two years on the bench by appointment, Brominski won a 10-year term in 1960. Under a constitutional change, judges serving elective terms must run in a referendum to continue in office. Foe of school busing wins seat on Boston City Council New Jersey voters defeat age-18 franchise BOSTON (AP)-Mrs. Louise Day Hicks, adamant foe of school busing to bring racial balance to Boston public schools, ran away with the election last night for one of the nine places on the Boston City Council. Negro mayor elected again in Glasgow, Ky. GLASGOW, Ky. (UPI)-Republican Luska J. Twyman, Kentucky's first Negro mayor, was elected yesterday to a new four-year term in this predominantly white community of about 10,000 population, the hometown of Kentucky, Gov. Louie B. Nunn. Twyman defeated Democrat Barlow Ropp 1,593 votes to 1,156 in final unofficial returns. She is a former chairman of the school committee, and it was while in that ofice that she became a controversial figure because of her opposition to any the neighborhood school system. With more than 200 of the city's 275 precincts counted, Mrs. Hicks had 53,732 votes. Running a strong second with 33,592 votes was Thomas I. Atkins, who two years ago became the first Negro member of the council. For Mrs. Hicks it was a comeback from the defeat she suffered two years ago when she was edged out for mayor of Boston by the incumbent, Kevin H. White. Bostin is filling the nine seats on the council from a field of 18 left after a preliminary election in September. United Press International NEWARK, N. J. (UPI) New Jersey voters, apparently disturbed by militant demonstrations by the young, defeated a referendum to lower the voting age to 18 despite a campaign by college students for its passage. Both candidates for governor also had backed the measure. The State Assembly, under (pressure from a group of college-age young persons, agreed to let the question go on the ballot. Cutting the voting age from 21 to 18 would have made about 350,000 young persons eligible to cast a ballot and thereby give the voice of the younger generation more political muscle. New Jersey voters approved a state lottery proposal and a bond issue to fight water pollution. The state lottery would be used to provide new revenue for the state with estimates ranging from $10 million to $200 million annually, while the bond issue would provide the state with $271 million in borrowed funds for pollution prevention facilities. The director of the state clean air and water division called the bond issue crucial and although neither major gubernatorial candidate urged passage of the lottery question both mentioned it as a possible source of new revenue. In seeking approval of the voting age amendment, a group of college students sponsored a march last month through the streets of Trenton. Leaders of the college group, known as the Voting Age Coalition, pointed out during the campaign that in Kentucky, one of four states that have an age-18 voting law, 80 per cent of the state's voters between 18 and 21 participated in last year's election. Other states with an age-18 voting law are Alaska, Hawaii and Georgia.
