  • Description

    Thomas Bradley, a former policeman and City Council Member, was sworn in on sunday (I July) as the first black mayor of Los Angeles.

    But the ceremony on the steps of City Hall drew almost as much applause for the man who swore in Bradley as it was for Bradley himself. The officiator was retired United States Chief Justice Earl Warren.

    After the formal speech, Mr. Bradley told the cheering crowds that there would be an open door to City Hall and to his office.

    Fifty-five year-old Mr. Bradley appealed to the people of Los Angeles to help him fight crime and problems of decay in the inner city.

    SYNOPSIS: In Los Angeles on Monday, it was an emotional moment when Tom Bradley rose to take the office of mayor, and the cheering was as much for the man who swore him in...retired United States Chief Justice Early Warren....as it was for Bradley himself.
