Charles Jourdan Boutique, First Floor Continued from First Page there would be fewer challengers, and the contest would be difficult for both Reiner and Bradley. Ferraro is telling potential supporters he will be a candidate for mayor. He is expected to announce his intentions around the time of a $200-a-plate fund-raising dinner at the Century Plaza on July 1.

Evidence that Bradley and Reiner are strong and well-liked political figures was provided in a poll taken in March by Hugh Schwartz of Public Response of San Francisco. The poll was taken in Republican Rep. Robert K. Etonian's West Side South Bay district It was commissioned by Carey Peck, Dor-nan's Democratic challenger, who was testing the popularity of various political figures he might ask to endorse him. Details of the survey were provided by Peck's campaign manager, Terry Pullen.

In the Westchester-El Segundo area, which is within Los Angeles city limits, Bradley and Reiner each got high approval ratings from 65 of the voters, who were given a list of political figures and asked what kind of a job they were doing. In the northern part of the district, which includes Los Angeles' Pacific Palisades, Bradley got a 53 rating compared to Reiner's 44. The same poll provided encouragement for Bradley's statewide prospects. In conservative, working class, mostly white Torrance, the black mayor got a 54 approval rating. Reiner was second with 44.

Sen Alan Cranston (D-Calif.) had 40. In the more affluent, conservative South Bay, Bradley also got the highest approval rating, 54. It was 62 in the prosperous, white Palos Verdes Peninsula. For Bradley, the primary election provided some pluses. Although his presidential candidate, Jimmy Carter, lost California, the mayor's early support of the President helped Los Angeles win $12 million from Washington to design the Wil-shire subway.

That grant is a big step toward building the subway. It will permit Bradley to counter criticism that he failed to keep his 1973 mayoral campaign promise to build a rapid transit system. And the primary resulted in the defeat of Proposition 9, the initiative that would have cut state income taxes. Its defeat preserved the narrowly balanced Los Angeles city budget and spared Bradley the need to spend much of the rest of the year lobbying for money to bail out the city. Relieved, Bradley canceled a lobbying trip to Sacramento he had scheduled in case Proposition 9 had passed.

Spared of fiscal worries, he and his wife headed to Argentina for a visit as guests of the Argentine government. An election night tour of campaign parties and television and radio studios revealed some other strengths. Bradley was welcomed as a popular celebrity Original prices signify that in some instances intermediate reductions may have been taken prior to this sale. Mayor Tom Bradley Tlmttphotot heard the statement referred to Reiner as a "lying kike lawyer from Brooklyn." Reiner is Jewish. Attorney and former assemblyman William T.

Bagley and San Francisco Examiner reporter Jim Wood said Jarvis made the statement outside the studios of San Francisco television station KPK after Jarvis had debated Bagley, a Proposition 9 opponent As Bagley recalled it Jarvis had told him that he felt Bagley was a worthy opponent adding, "You're not like Reiner. He is a goddamn lying lawyer kike son of a bitch from Brooklyn." Bagley said he objected to the use of the term "kike" and warned Jarvis that the phrase "lying lawyer" is slanderous. Wood said he recalled hearing Jarvis merely say Reiner was a "lying kike lawyer from Brooklyn." He said he used that quote in an article in the Examiner, although he did not use Reiner's name because he was concerned about Bagley's warning about slander. Jarvis denied using the word kike. "I didn't say anything like that," Jarvis said.

"I've never used it in my life. I don't know what it means." Jarvis said, "I might have said he's a lawyer from Brooklyn," and he said he has called Reiner a bar. Asked about Wood's and Bagley's recollections of the conversation, Jarvis said, "As far as I know, they were mistaken." (Last week, Jarvis, got into trouble with the Japanese-American community because of a statement he made upon the defeat of Proposition 9, equating his fight with World War II: "The Japs won the first battle at Pearl Harbor (and) the United States won the war," he said. The pressure of the campaign also reveals Please Turn to Page 34, Col. 1 held for the mayor, Reiner benefitted from the primary even more.

Weeks ago, when Propositon 9 still looked like a winner, Reiner agreed to speak against the measure and to debate its sponsor, Howard Jarvis. Reiner, who started out as a liberal Democrat, became popular among conservatives with his attacks on Los Angeles city officials' travel and his support of Proposition 13, the 1978 property tax-cutting initiative. Mickey Kantor, manager of the anti-Proposition 9 campaign, believed Reiner would be a valuable ally. "When I came in, I thought I was buying a ticket on the Titanic," Reiner said. "But it turned around.

It doesn't hurt to be on the right side of a landslide." The debates with Jarvis put Reiner on television during the dinner-hour news. And he had to perform under intense pressure, facing the flamboyant Jarvis in short TV appearances in which he could make no mistakes. It was a step up from City Hall politics to the major leagues, and the practice sharpened Reiner for the mayoral campaign. He seemed a bit flustered during the first TV meeting, but as the confrontations continued, and became more bitter, his performance improved markedly. The two men came out of the experience thoroughly disliking each other.

Reiner called Jarvis "creepy" and said the Jarvis campaign managers were "the mud merchants of Orange County." Jarvis added, "During the last month of the campaign, they (anti-Proposition 9 forces) made a campaign of character assassination against me."
