When the four were elected to the nine-member council giving them power to biock the passage of any proposal man y alarming predictions were made. The radicals would let 10-year-olds attend X-ratcd they would legalize marijuana, tiiey wonld send a city delegation to Hanoi to make peace Gravest of all, they would set a pattern for the radical takeover of ci- ties which could be followed across tlie country.

The chief! trouble is that most voles on the council end up deadlocked four-four. The radicals had hoped to appoint their man as tire ninth member of the coun- cil, but that attempt ended in deadlock, too, and may now have to wait for tlie next mun- icipal elections in April 197.1. A further complication is (he radicals' inability to agree among themselves. Mayor Warren Widener. a 33-year-old black lawyer who was once a Strategic air Command missile officer, goes along wilh the radical lino on most matters but has a tendency to com- promise wilh the four moderate councillors.
