(Studio) Beverly Hills, California, police chief fired.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(Beverly Hills, California) Beverly Hills can't find police chief everybody likes. Joe Kimble hired 2 years ago, fired last Mar. for too liberal method of working with youth. Rehired short time later, now fired again. [KIMBLE - says wanted to help young people who see need for better law enforcement system and who believe in me.] [Mayor J.M. STUCHEN - like to see criminals afraid to come here instead of bank robberies, burglaries; maybe fault of times rather than Kimble; but we are concerned.] Crimes double in last 2 years in Beverly Hills; fewer arrests made. [Unidentified YOUTHS - react to firing of Kimble.]
