Photograph article dated October 22, 1960 partially reads, "One Republican candidate was missing from the platform last week when Valley party leaders welcomed Richard Nixon at the air terminal in Burbank. William Detzell, GOP Assembly candidate, was not crowding around the Vice President for a share in the Nixon spotlight. He was home campaigning in the 41st District, where the Republican label for 20 years has guaranteed defeat... Bill Detzell faces another obstacle more ominous than the Democratic edge in registration: opponent Tom Carrell, a successful San Fernando auto dealer, is one of the District's best-known businessmen. Beaming, mild-mannered and shrewd, Carrell frustrates Dentzell during their occasional joint appearances by waving to his long-time friends in the audience and quipping with them about cars, politicals and their fraternal orders."
