McCree, a soft-spoken foundry foreman, is the first Negro mayor of this southeast Michigan industrial city of 200,000. He was elected Monday night at the City Commission meeting where he went to begin a fiftli term as 3rd Ward commissioner. McRee said that he never dreamed he would be mayor of any city, let alone one as big as Flint. McCi'ee says he is moderate on racial issues. He has in the past spoken agamst alleged police brutality in Flint, but has praised the work of the police department on other occasions. He is a strong advocate of open housing and equal employment oppoi-tunities, McCree has his own definition of "black power," the term used by Stokley Carmichael, chaii> man of the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee. McO'ee says the racial climate in Flint is good but he is concerned with issues other than those stemming from race. In his race for re-election, fluoridation of the water supply was the major issue. Under the city charter, the mayor's duties are limited to chairing the City Commission, a legislative body, and to appointing advisory commissions. A city manager handles most of the administrative duties. Until he was made a foreman two years ago, McCree worked on an assembly line in the General Motors Buick Division foundry.

Aldrin's excui-sions wiped out fears that man perhaps could not work for long periods in space.
