To Spur Turnout The three-way race for mayor is expected to spur a heavy turnout. There are'about eligible voters here and the rec- ord turnout for a municipal election was attained in 1965 whcny ballots were marked That year, postal clerk Den- nis J. Sullivan attained the mayor's chair for a first term by defeating incumbent Mayor Mario J Vagge and the latter's former campaign manager. Royal Dion. In seeking a third two-year lease on the mayor's office to- morrow-, the 50-year-old Sullivan faces a stiff challenge from County Commissioner Armahd A- Beaulieu, 45, and Housing Code Director Philip J. Mc- Laughlin, 56. Both Beaulieu, a former al- derman and fire commissioner, and McLaughlin, a retired po- lice captain, have geared their campaign to restoring harmony in City Hall "to get things done." They have obliquely attacked Sullivan's' administration as one of constant dissension and tur- moil. Beaulieu has pledged to work with the aldermen to restore closer rapport between the mayor and the aldermanic board. Mclaughlin has deplored "government by crises" and promises that his administra- tion would anticipate problems and solve them through long- range planning. Mayor Maintains Sullivan has maintained that he had to step on some toes during his administration to make an entrenched bureau- cracy responsive to the people's needs. He points to his record for accomplishments achieved. Aside from electing a mayor, the voters will pick five Board of Education members; 14 al- dermen; three public works commissioners; a fire commis- sioner and an assessor. Depending on the sentiments of the electorate, the 15-mem- ber Board of Aldermen could undergo a dramatic shakeup. The only aldermen certain of returning to the board are Ward MAYORAL RACE Page 2 Debates Peace Role Churches What began as an anti-Viet- nam: Moratorium progrim here Saturday developed into criticism of the Ecumenical Center on Broad Street, and Catholic clergy.

The original White House an- nouncement of the speech just before the Oct. 15 Vietnam Mor- atorium protests, its timing to- night on election eve proximately one year after the Nov. 1, 1968, halt to the US. bombing of North Vietnam, and the secrecy surrounding its pre- paration have led to wide specu- lation'that a new Nixon move on Vietnam is in the offing.

Senior administration authori- ties have contended the South Vietnamese are making so much progress toward taking over the war effort that the omy way the enemy can win now is through a too-rapid U.S. pull-out forced by U S public opinion. Thus- the Nixon address, as they see it, is primarily to win the battle on the home front against protesters demanding that America should get out of Vietnam now. Ready To Debate As the Nixon speech preached, both supporters and critics of administration nrlicy gathered ammunition and con- gressmen readied for another round of debate.
