    TRANSCRIPT: DALEY (SEQ. 9): "The overwhelming vote today is a mandate to us to make Chicago a better city for all our people, and to hope we will all work together in the common interest of doing what must be done, and that is to make it a better city, a better society, and of course this will take teamwork, co-operation, and above all determination. The (indistinct word) spirit of Chicago is bright tonight."

    Background: A landslide election victory has brought 68 year-old Richard Daley his fifth term of office as Chicago's Mayor.

    He has now been Mayor for sixteen years in America's second largest city, and his reputation has now been enhanced as the most powerful single force in the Democratic party.

    The Mayor piled up a majority of 417, 728 to overwhelm his 41 year-old opponent Richard Friedman, whose attempt to weld together a coalition of Republicans, independent Democrats and blacks splintered against the rock-like walls of the regular democratic machine, which has held power in the city for the past 40 years.

    This was Mayor Daley's comment on his victory:
