Sound interview with spokesperson explaining their position against classified research, and the response by administration (Mr. Heffner). Story reads, "Today's Stanford Daily touched off a small demonstration this afternoon in front of the Provost's Office at the Palo Alto campus. About 20 to 30 students, some carrying placards, gathered at the University official's office to protest an alleged classified contract between the school's Electrical Engineering Department and the United States' Central Intelligence Agency. The student body was informed of the 'contract' in this morning's issue of the campus newspaper. The Graduate Coordinating Committee, the group which organized today's protest, claims that the university, by participating in such a contract, is engaging in covert or clandestine activity. We asked committee co-chairman Robert Hass about these charges.." Reel 3: Segment 1 (sound): Interviews with Joseph Pace and Virginia Shaffer. Pace complains about a smear campaign, but Shaffer claims she is referencing news clippings on his voting record and how can his established voting record be a smear campaign? Story reads, "It seems as though the never-ending feud between San Jose Councilwoman Virginia Shaffer and Mayor Joseph Pace has worked its way up to state-wide political circles. Pace bitterly assailed Mrs. Shaffer yesterday at the convention of the United Republicans of California, saying that she was fomenting a smear campaign against him. His remarks followed charges from the convention floor that he was a liberal with socialistic tendencies. Pace said that the information on which those charges were based came from Mrs. Shaffer...Pace, who appeared in fighting gear is a candidate for the GOP State Controller nomination. He received a duel endorsement along with another candidate Robert McDavid of Altadena. But only after a second ballot. We asked Mrs. Shaffer if there was any truth to the charges leveled by Pace..." Segment 2 (silent): San Jose City Council meeting in progress. "Tonight, at San Jose's City Council meeting, Pace brought his political campaign for State Controller into city business. The mayor announced he might oppose a suggestion by City Manager A. P. 'Dutch' Hamann to raise city taxes. Dr. Pace said he didn't see how people could vote for a property tax hike in view of the current assessor scandals...and in a prepared statement...the mayor said his opponent -- incumbent controller -- Alan Cranston hasn't mentioned the tax scandals. On that issue -- Councilwoman Shaffer took on city manager Hamann saying the council and administration had promised no tax hike in the last campaign for city bond issues. The council reached no decision on the tax proposal."
