Getting
on the
musical
map
By JACK FOX
LOS ANGELES (UPI) - The
tenor's voice broke as he reach-
ed the crescendo of his song
with the stirring words:
"Loss-Ann-Juh-Less, Cal-If-
For - Knee - Yuh, You - Ess-
AAAAAA."
Three men huddled around a
tape recorder in an office on
1 the 15th floor of City Hall and
showed no emotion but just put;
another recording on the ma-
chine.
They have the awesome re-
snonsibility of going through
329 such compositions and win-
3nrowing them down to the 201
best, one of which may be chos-
en the official song of the CityE
of Los Angeles.
If Los Angeles has an in-'
feriority complex about any-
thing, it might be the absence
of a song extolling its virtues,
and the pain is exacerbated by
the great popularity of the{
AP Photo hymn to its arch-rival to the
north- "I Left My Heart in
San Francisco."I
Chicago is that "toddlin'
town", New York is bursting
with civic anthems from "side-
walks" to "Manhattan" which
has the Bronx and Staten Is-
land, too. There is the St. Louis
woman with her diamond rings,j
the rose of old San Antone andj
the moon over Miami.
But Los Angeles? Zilch. Right
here in the center of show biz,
no one has come up with a
1 catchy tune to put the city on
the musical map.
Former Mayor Sam Yorty
back in 1965 proclaimed a pub-
lice competition to select an
official song.
Since that time, 729 tunes
have been submitted. For a
time the project faltered. Now
it has been revived and the
Bureau of Music of the Mu-I
nicipal Arts Department is re-
viewing the last 329 entries.
Owen Brady, the city's music
coordinator and an organist
Iwith the Los Angeles Philhar-
monic Symphony Orchestra, is
overseeing the selection pro-
cess.
"The only guidelines were
that we wanted a positive'
approach," he said. "By that, I
mean we would just as soonI
forget smog or freeways."
Offerings poured in from
"all walks of life," he said.
Some people sent in sheet music

Actually one and the same. John Davidson, top, the singer

because it was "the biggest challenge I ever had."

NEW AMERICAN MOVEMENT
The New American Movement (NAM) exists to help organize a
movement for democratic socialism in the United States. Our
aim is to establish working-class control of the enormous pro-
ductive capacity of American industry, to create a society that
will provide material comfort and security for all people, and in
which the full and free development of every individual will be
the basic goal. Such a society will strive for decentralization of
decision making, an end to bureaucratic rule, and participation
of all people in shaping their own lives and the direction of
society. We believe the elimination of sexist and racist institu-
tions and the dismantling of American economic and social
control abroad are central to the struggle for socialism.
