A mail bomb loaded with dynamite sits in the post office for three weeks

"That's our next big job, to get our fine, big zoo started," said Councilwoman Rosalind Wyman, who was an early backer of the Dodgers moving to L.A.
A council committee would meet later in the month to deal with a contract to turn operation of the proposed zoo over to the nonprofit Friends of the Los Angeles Zoo.
"With the world's largest zoo located next to the world's finest baseball park, Los Angeles will have a worldwide attraction for tourists," Councilman Gordon Hahn said. "Let's get it done."
