LOS ANGELES (/P --- A bomb scare delayed mail deliveries in the Los Angeles area for two hours Saturday. Police and postal inspectors checked thousands of sacks of mail with fluoroscopes and hearing devices to detect time mechanisms in packages. They found nothing suspicious. An anonymous telephone caller had said bombs were scattered through Southern California mail. The caller, an unidentified woman, had warned authorities in Ventura and Oxnard that bombs mailed in Oxnard were set to explode at 6 a.m. Officials said she sounded hysterical. Mail bags from Oxnard were traced to the Los Angeles International Airport, the Downtown Terminal Annex and a mail truck driving in the Bakersfield area. Long Beach mail was not affected.
