An African trade trip by Mayor Tom Bradley and two aides was paid for from a charitable contribution by a giant electronics firm that says it never intended such a use for the monies, The Times has learned. Sources familiar with the financing of the trip, under scrutiny by city prosecutors, said that most of a $50,000 donation made in 1986 to a Chinatown nonprofit business development group went to pay for the Africa trip and other travels by an aide.

When Mayor Tom Bradley sat down each year to fill out public disclosure forms on his personal financial dealings, aides and close associates say, it was an intensely private ritual. The pattern began with the earliest and simplest of Bradley's disclosure statements, aides say, 14 years ago when Watergate-era voters first required California's elected officials to reveal holdings and income sources to avoid possible conflicts of interest.
