PAGE FOURTEEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY. MAT IT, 1MI Poulson Is Los Angeles New Mayor Congressman Ends Bowron's Long Reign LOS ANGELES H) — Congressman Morris Poulson, an Oregon farm boy who came here to try his luck in the big city, has ended the 15-year reign of Mayor Fletcher Bowron. A staunch advocate of economy In government, the 67-year-old republican now in Bis fifth term in the House of Representatives, scored a decisive victory in yes- 'terday's non-partisan election. He'll asume the $18,000-a-year job as leader of the nation's fourth largest city on July 1. Bowron, also a Republican, trailed by SB.TO votes in the semiofficial count today. Returns from 2900 of 3641 precincts gave Poulson 227,179 and Bowron 198,398. The 65-year-old mayor waged a heated campaign to retain the job he's held since 1938. He conceded defeat shortly before midnight, wishing Poulson "every success in the opportunity he has to carry forward the traditions of honesty, integrity, and clean government which the people of Los Angeles so richly deserve." The congressman, who led Bowron by some 32,000 votes in the April primary, said in a victory statement: "In this moment of victory, there is no room for the rancor and bitterness which manifested itself during the latter part of the campaign. I extend my good wishes to Mayor Bowron for his contribution to public life." Two bond issues totaling 80 million dollars failed to get the necessary two-thirds vote for passage. Proposed were a 27 million dollar auditorium and 33 million for airport improvements. The slam bang campaign for mayor drew a turnout of approximately one-half million voters.
