Arnone, local Republican chairman. "To even inter such a thing is just plain stupid," Dr. Ar none said in a prepared press release. Meanwhile, the matter was briefly discussed at last night's Bopough Council meeting when Mrs. Ann Makarewicz, Mount St., told the mayor she was bitter about his remarks, especially because they appeared In The Daily Register Christmas eve issue "It leads me to believe," she said, "that anyone who differs (with the mayor) may find themselves blasted in the newspapers" ' The mayor responded by saying, "You're not the only one who feels that way, what can I say." He added that he made the remarks as a private citizen and not as mayor of Red Bank. He also forbid further comment on the matter during the meeting. However, the mayor did allow John Mulheren, one of the two GOP council candidates involved in the election dispute to read a statement. Said Mr. Mulheren, "I was, and still am, amazed and shocked at the intemperate and dictatorial tone of the mayor's diatribe against two individuals who have done nothing more than speak their minds. "When citixens are castigated publicly by governing officials for exercising their Constitutional rights to be heard, then it is a sad day for Red Bank and America. " he said. He added, "It was citizens who cared and who dared to seek out corruption and irregularities who exposed the Watergate chicanery Do we expect less from our own citizens?

Grounded tanker oil spills into Delaware MARCUS HOOK, Pa. (AP) — A work crew has contained an oil spill from a Liberian tanker'that ran aground during a docking maneuver at a refinery here, spewing at least 1M.0O0 gallons of crude oil Into the Delaware River. The spill created an oil slick at least three miles long that extended two miles north of the refinery and 1 one mile south, a Coast Guard spokesman said last night. He added. "We won't know the extent of the spill until daylight. You can't get an overall picture at night." The Coast Guard said the tanker. Olympic Games, apparently lost power and struck a sand bar, rupturing its hull, while turning to dock at the BP, Inc., refinery. The spill, which occurred some IS miles down river from Philadelphia, was reported about 4:10 p.m. by one of the tugs that was guidling the 771-foot tanker toward the dock, according to the Coast Guard. At the time of the accident the 19-million gallon capacity vessel was carrying 17 million gallons of Arabian light crude oil, according to a spokesman for Standard Oil of Ohio, which owns BP, Inc., and chartered the 771-foot tanker Jack Kistler. an employe of Caleb Brett Sons, who was called out to examine the spill, characterized Arabian light as dark, thick and odorous. "It's not something that we like," said a BP spokesman. "But it's one of those things where you take the good with the bad. We try to get cleanup crews in the scene as soon as possible." The Coast Guard said the oil appeared to be leaking from the vessel's port wing tank, below the water line. After divers examined the damage hull last night. Samuel Baker, the Standard Oil spokesman, said repairs probably would be made sometime after dawn today. Joe Douglas, manager of Coastal Services Inc. which was hired to clean up the spill, said the oil around the ship was contained shortly before 11 p.m. Douglas said a 2.000-foot The Inside Story THE WEATHER Partly cleady, breezy aad cold tealghl aad twnerraw.

BP workers began unloading the ship's remaining cargo late yesterday, and the oil walled in by the boom was skimmed off and pumped into a tanker truck. The ship, which Is owned by the Red Bank Shipping Co of Panama and registered in Monrobia, Liberia, was loaded at Freeport In the Bahamas, according to Baker. A Coast Guard spokesman said the oil spill Was the largest in the Delaware River since the Corinthos collided with the Edgar M. Queeny in January 1(75 at the BP refy nery dock. Some 315,000 gallons of oil pured into the river after that wreck and subsequent explosion. Another Liberian tanker, the Argo Merchant, split up last week after running aground off Nantucket Island on Dec. 15. spilling 7.6'million gallons of Industrial oil into the Atlantic Ocean. In Groton. Conn., a third Liberian tanker spilled 2.000 gallons of oil into the Thames River over the weekend. BP, Inc.. which operates the refinery here, has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Standard Oil of Ohio since 11)70 when British Patroleum and Standard Oil merited Meanwhile, the Argo Merchant's automatic pilot was not functioning and the tanker was 24.5 miles off course when she went aground off Nantucket Island and spilled 7 5 million gallons of oil into the sea, her skipper testified in New York Monday.

In his statement, Mr O'Hern blajned Mr and Mrs Zar, frequent council critics, for persuading the local Republicans to file court challenges to the reelection of Democratic incumbents Robert Marks and Frank J. McKenna The first attempt was a recount which upheld the election, and showed thai Mr. Marks had defeated Mr Mulheren by IS votes the other GOP challenger was former councilman William S Anderson, who lost by more than in votes. Following the recount there was a law suit filed by the Republicans alleging irregularities In the conduct of the election That case was heard by Superior Court Judge Louis R. Aiklns. who ruled that M votes were questionable enough to be declared illegal, but instead of throwing the election out as the Republicans had asked. Mr Aikins said the election would be decided on the basis of how those 21 persons had voted Two had died since the election. The end result was that Mr Marks ended up with nine voles more than Mr Mulhr ren No decision by the GOP as lo whether the case will be appealed has been made Dr. Arnone said "the mayor's worts appear to be those of a vindictive man who was obviously scared to death thai the Republican suit would reveal a multitude of election irregularities perpetuated by the Democratic party in their effort lo retain control of the governing body in the last election." Dr. Arnone said, "It must be remembered that Mr. Zar has been a life long registered Democrat who has become a thorn in the side of Mr O'Hern because of his insistence on being heard at council meetings Although I certainly do not agree with all the viewpoint expressed by the Zan. I do believe the* have as much right to be heard as any other resident of Red Bank. To attempt to silence Mr Zar through the use of insinuation and ridicule In the public press is certainly not In keeping with the dignity expected from an attorney aad mayor of our borough."

Brendan T. Byrne yesterday signed legislation providing IK million that will Initially fund nine housing projects in the state, including construction of senior citizens housing in West Long Branch and Malawan. The West Long Branch project will provide 150 units of housing primarily for senior citizens. The project will be located on Community Drive and is estimated to cost $6 million. The borough almost forfeited the project last month when a federal agency involved decided not to recognize 1400.000 of the project cost The borough then reduced the amount of money it was to receive in lieu of taxes for the project in order to bring the overall cost into line with standards of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. ' The Matawan project consists of 108 units - 48 efficiency apartments and M one-bedroom apartments — costing an estimated 13.7 million The project. Minisink Village Senior Citizens Housing, is to be built off Route 79 on a nine-acre tract behind Mount Pleasant Manor Nursing Home The legislation signed by the governor provides an initial $K million from the 125 million mortgage assistance bond approved by the voters in the election last Nov. 2 The bill provides 12 million to fund neighborhood preservation projects, including rehabilitation of existing housing, and M million lo create a construction reserve fund. The reserve fund will be used to secure long-term bonds Issued by the state Housing Finance Agency (HFA) to aid development of housing for low and moderate income families. The agency will issue bonds next month to finance the nine projects,, which are expected to generate 124 million in construction wages, Byrne said The governor said at the end of Ike construction period, estimated lo be a maximum 20 months, when the nine projects are completed the M million reserve fund can be reapplied to finance other projects. "By going direct to longterm financing and eliminating the need for short-term notes, the HFA expects to achieve lower Interest rates on Its bond ands and move more rapidly to obtain federal subsidy authorizations for ad- ditional projects."

By September, the Housing Authority had already received 500 applications from senior citizens for subsidized housing Eligible senior citizens pay one-quarter of their gross income for rent in the subsidized housing program An application for funding was submitted to the state Housing Finance Agency (HFA) for the Broadway senior citizen's rise, which Is to contain approximately 242 apartments. An HFA stipulation that forced deletion of 10.000 square feet of commercial space from the plan placed the project in a precarious position with city council members and the city Chamber of Commerce. The commercial space was Carpet Event Of The Year CBO.

Some city council members also feared that the HFA s refusal lo limit residency in the high rise to senior citizens would defeat the purpose of the project These disagreements with the HFA regulations became important at the end of October, when the Agency announced It had no more funds for new senior citizens projects Mayor Henry R Cioffi. the project's most ardent proponent, has asked the Housing Authority to investigate the possibility of getting US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funding for the project.

Housing Authority executive director Mr. Kiernan added be didn't expect lo receive word from HUD on the project "until after the new year Even so.
