nion Votes No On Pool Issue Gains Judgeship With 1244 Margin In Heavy Voting Morris M Terrlrzl Esq a practicing attorney in Huntingdon County for more than 2S years scored one of the countys biggest political upsets yesterday by rolling to an easy victory in a bitterly contested race for Judge o f the Court of Common Pleas In the process of scoring a 1244 vote win over Judge R Merle Heffner yesterday Attorney Terrizzi stunned the dominant Repub lican Party in the county Without endorsement of either major political party the winner a political newcomer this year brought together workers from the Republican and Democratic Parties along with independents in forging his victory The Judgeship fight and the four contests for Justice of the Peace brought out an unusually heavy offyear vote in the county All 37 precincts reported an excellent turnout of voters In the race for Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania the county followed the Republican route to give a victory to Judge Thomas Pomeroy Jr over Louis L Manderlno a Democrat by a whopping vote o f S03G to 3908 In the only other statewide contest the countians voted 4032 yes and 2471 no on the question of retaining Harry M Mont gomery as a judge of the Superior Court of the Commonwealth The new judge of Huntingdon County will take the oath of office for the ten year term in January of 1970 Yesterdays balloting brought to a close nearly a year of polit ical infighting and campaigning in connection with the countv Judgeship Following the resignation of Judge Swirles L Himes in late 196S the vacancy was filled by action of Governor Raymond P Shafer with the appointment of Attorney Heffner to the judicial post In the spring primary in May Attorney Terrizzi challenged the new judge and lost the Republican nomination but managed to carry the Democratic Party nomination and the overall majority vote The heat generated by the primary campaign waned during the summer months but was rekindled as the fall
