Photograph article dated March 8, 1962 partially reads, "Mayor Samuel W. Yorty told a Valley audience Wednesday night that the state of California has treated Los Angeles with 'rank discrimination' He charged that it is 'inexcusable on the part of the state' that it withholds 7 per cent of the gasoline tax paid by Los Angeles. The Mayor, along with Supervisor Warren Dorn and Los Angeles City Council President Harold Henry, spoke at the installation banquet of the Valley-Wide Committee on Streets, Highways, and Transportation. After Yorty's talk, Councilman Henry installed James Stanley as chairman of the committee for the second year." Seen in the photograph, left to right, Harold Henry, James Stanley, and Mayor Yorty at the installation banquet held in North Hollywood.
