ed that regular business he set aside and that the council con­ sider and act on a situation created by Chief Nelson’s letter of Oct. 11, addressed to City Manager Arthur H. Brandow, with copies later sent to coun- cilmen by Brandow.

MAYOR’S CRITICISM The letter, read Inio the reo ord by Brandow, referred to Long’s criticism ot the hiring of William A. Anderson as a policé officer. Nelson wrote: I could not do otherwise than to inv estigate the accuracy of May or Long’* informal surv ey . (Long said at the Oct. 7 meeting that he had made an informal surv ey of Berkeley and San Francisco po­ lice departments to determine whether a man with Anderson’* record of 30 per cent phy sical disability would hav e been hir­ ed by these departments. He said the answer was no.” ) Nelson’s letter went on to challenge Long’s findings, stat­ ing that the Berkeley and San Francisco departments t ol d him they would hire a man with Anderson’s disabilities it he were passed by an ex amin­ ing phy sician.

DEMANDS RETRACTION Nelson then demanded a re­ traction of Long’s statement* to correct the unwarranted in­ justice that in my opinion wa* done to Officer Anderson.” W h e n Brandow finished reading the letter, Councilman Ball spoke up: We ought to ask for Frank Nelson’s resignation,” he de­ clared. If I had ev er put my ­ self in the position of calling my boss a liar, I’d hav e been prepared to withdraw from my position . . . This is an ex ample of despicable bad taste.” J ones mov ed that the cotmcd go into ex ecutiv e session. An Independent-J ournal reporter (who, with one other person who left a short time later wa* the only public” present) pro­ tested. J ones withdrew his motion, but Councilman Roger F. Morse re-introduced it. Some discus­ sion ensued, ending when the council killed the closed doors” proposal 3-2. Council- men Ball, Ross and Long v oted to keep the meeting open. HIRING DISCUSSED The discussion then returned to the hiring of Anderson. Morse mov ed adoption of a resolution ex pressing the coun­ cil’s sincere regrets” ov er tha unfav orable publicity regard­ ing Anderson that resulted from the council meeting of Oct. 7 ,” and affirming tha council’s full support and con­ fidence” toward the new offi­ cer.
