Strength skyrocketed when City and county taxes Verdi exorbitantly increased to pro Voke an aroused citizenry to the boiling Point. That did it. Or at least is doing it. As of today four courses Are open to the los Angeles City Council to wit 1 repeal the ordinance passed oct. 8, under which the dodgers were granted the Chavez Ravine contract. Such a step can be taken any Day. But won t be taken As matters stand unless the aforementioned Gale goes beyond control. Remember True councilmen s own Politi Cal lives Are at stake. They obviously Aren t forgetting that a general election is to be held next june. Mean while they could be sparring for time and weighing the significance of every connected development. Nov.

Walter f. O Malley made the request. He is president of the homeless club which announced its move from Brooklyn to los Angeles at the conclusion of the season. Negotiations for los Angeles memorial Coli Seum have reached a stalemate. And the referendum move is holding up his plans to build a dodger Park in Chavez Ravine pending a vote. He asked the City s Board of directors to let his baseball team perform in the stadium renowned for football s original new year s Day bowl game. Mayor Norris Poulson of los Angeles also made an impassioned plea to Pasadena to accept the dodgers on behalf of All Southern California. So did county supervisor Warren m. Dorn him self the former chairman of the Pasadena Board of directors. Its current Leader Seth Miller and his fellow legislators promptly voted to consider the matter formally at their regular 10 . Meeting tuesday. Two year stay sought o Malley Mots to use the bowl for his celebrated club for of a year and a half a maximum of two years. By then he expects to have the team s stadium built. The move anticipated from earlier develop ments reported exclusively by the Independent Star news this week came after o Malley and the governing body of the coliseum could not reach agreement Poulson touched on this subject in his open ing remarks. We have come Here to Appeal to you in a temporary the los Angeles mayor said. You have something we Don t. You have the Best place for major league baseball to be played anywhere in Southern California. I ridiculed for saying this. But i just left a conference with the coliseum commission. They will admit that for baseball the Rose bowl can be adapted comparably to the Best stadium in the the coliseum was frowned upon for several reasons. Most noticeable were the preferred Loca Tion of the playing Field and numerous conflicts with other events that Are a traditional part of the coliseum schedule. The bowl is sparingly used and its Only annual summer commitment is a fourth of july fireworks show sponsored by City firemen. In that coliseum the plate would have to have been located in the East or peristyle end. This would make it the Only baseball Field in the country in which the late afternoon Sun would Shine in a Batter s eyes. O Malley had earlier expressed fears of possible fatal Braning of batters who might sight of pitched balls. He also said it was unfeasible from a Spectator standpoint.

Let s not fool around about it. The dodger s want to use our Rose bowl for at least one season. Let us make them Welcome and in a big Way. Dodger president Walter o Mal Ley came to town yesterday with los Angeles mayor Norris Poulson to ask for the use of our stadium on a temporary basis. The coliseum is out As a baseball Park. Wrigley Field in los Angeles is too Small for the dodgers Advance ticket Sale. The Rose bowl with minor con version and Well quote mayor Poul son is comparable to the Best baseball stadiums in the we be got the Ball Park and the parking space. Let us now Hope that our City officials make it possible for us to have at least for a season the thrilling spectacle of major league baseball in Pasadena. Let us offer the dodgers decent terms and warm hospitality. Mayor Poulson s interest in getting the Rose bowl for the dodgers is a Southern California interest. As of this Date there is nothing to pre vent the dodgers from returning to Brooklyn. Los Angeles mayor Poulson s own City has succeeded in. Muddling the future of the dodgers there. The Chavez Ravine site on which o Malley wants to locate his Ball Park has become the subject of con Traversy. Coliseum officials were unable to provide a satisfactory physical layout for the dodgers or a Busi Ness arrangement in which the dodgers could break even. What about the Rose bowl is it a shrine dedicated rely to King football to that we would give a rousing the Rose bowl with its major league facilities its acres of parking area sits Idle through most of the year. Pasadena City College has Given it up As have the High schools. Cal tech scheduled a handful of. Games there this season. There is the Rose bowl game the Junior Rose bowl game and the fourth of july fireworks show put on by the fire department. And that s about it. For the balance of the year it is merely something tourists go to see while in Pasadena. Certainly the City of Pasadena could come up with an arrangement satisfactory to both the dodgers and the City alike. Possibly and this May by More than just an Idle pipe dream we could make the arrange ment not Only satisfactory but per manent
