April 8. 1961: Red Cars are being replaced by buses on service between Los Angeles and Long Beach, San Pedro and Compton. Transportation conspiracy buffs please note: The Metropolitan Transit Authority is making the switch because Pacific Electric won’t grant a long-term lease on its tracks.

Most political observers were surprised at Sam Yorty's strength in Tuesday's election. They thought Mayor Poulson would be reelected easily in the primary, Matt Weinstock says.
