John, O'Keefe. who served briefly as mayor of the city and also served as Commissioner of Public Safety during the administration of the late Gee. Hugh White. The current ltuation devel- oped after Mayor Danny Guic decided not to seek a second term. His graceful exit. in the face of what a private poll showed to be an up-hill climb for re-election, left the field wide open for O'Keefe. What is apparently disconcert- Ing to some of the old-line politicians in the city is the fact that O'Keefe's inten.tion is to create a new brighter image for the Biloxi area. He has already told ky ad- visers that he phms to consoli- date the police and fire depa,rt- melts into a department of public afety. And. for head of that new city agency, he has picked J M. Lopez. a hard-nosed veteran of ,more than 20 years service with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The move to Lopez. which has already leaked out to city em- ployees, undoubtedly triggered the resignation last week of Police Chief Leslie Mon tgomexy drive'on June 17 a success. --!w'held & Co share. $98.94; Me-]Selvage, same, $283.54; West and Fire Chief Frank Gabrich.
