PROP. B WON IN 9 OF 15 DISTRICTS

Proposition B, the baseball referendum measure on the June 3 ballot giving the Dodgers a new home in Chavez Ravine, won in nine out of the city's 15 City Council districts, a breakdown of the voting showed yesterday.

Figures released by City Clerk Walter Peterson, which included a count by absentee ballots, showed that Proposition B on a city-wide basis polled 351,683 yes votes while 325,898 negative ballots were cast, established a majority for the Dodgers of 25,785.

Four of the six Council districts which voted against Proposition B were in the San Fernando Valley, where sectional opposition to downtown attractions is fostered by some interests. In two of these four districts, however, baseball lost by only a narrow margin. Council districts in the Valley are the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th.

The vote count by Council districts was as follows:
