In election returns Tuesday, a judge renowned for keeping order in the court appeared to win the race for mayor of Inglewood, where City Hall observers are hoping he can keep order among the fractious council members. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Roosevelt F. Dorn, 61, was one of four candidates seeking to finish the term of former Mayor Ed Vincent, who was elected to the Assembly in November. The mayoral term will end in November 1998.

The ordinance, approved on a 3-2 vote with council members Judy Dunlap and Curren Price dissenting, will take effect in 30 days. But the pay increase will not go into effect before April 1997, when the next municipal elections are held.

When the Inglewood City Council meets Nov. 19, members will be getting an added incentive for showing up: a pay raise. Voters on Tuesday approved a municipal initiative called Proposition Y that could increase by fivefold the salary that council members now earn. Council members earn $9,696 a year. The mayor is paid $19,392. But the initiative, approved by nearly 60% of the voters, allows council members to increase their salary to $47,252. The mayor can receive up to $94,504.

Even by the rambunctious standards of Inglewood politics, this spring has been a tumultuous time for the city's governing elite. A city councilman held a news conference to accuse the mayor of plotting to have thugs clobber him with baseball bats. The mayor replied that the councilman needs psychiatric help. Two veteran police officers charged that a city councilwoman incited gang members against them as they arrested a suspected parole violator.
