KNTV Channel 11 News Reels May 11, 1966
Original camera footage edited for broadcast for KNTV San Jose Channel 11 news. The accompanying script, read by the newscaster, provides details of the stories and completes the broadcast. Reel 1: Segment 1 (sound): Los Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty speaking to camera regarding "filthy literature" on campus, "daughters" shouldn't be subjected to this, regents bear responsibility. Script reads, "Los Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty has accused Governor Edmund Brown of making 'political appointments' to the University of California Board of Regents. Yorty, who will oppose Brown for the Democratic nomination for governor in June, hints that the furor at Berkeley's campus of the University comes because of the alleged political appointments...Brown today said he is specifically prohibited by California law from political considerations in appointing members of the Regents. Brown said there are 'nuts' both on and off the campus at Berkeley, and they are very hard to control. There are some great men on the Board of Regents, the Governor said, appointed for their abilities...Yorty's charges he termed 'outrageous.'" Segment 2 (silent): Woman smiling, standing in hallway of municipal building with flagpole behind her, wearing a formal suit and corsage, wearing a hat with netting. A woman wearing a name badge pins a different corsage on her suit, while another woman in a suit with pearls stands next to her. A man in a formal suit is also standing next to her. She takes a breath as though she is nervous. Cut to a banquet room full of people standing and clapping. (There does not appear to be a reference to this film in the broadcast script; however, it may be the Santa Clara Woman Volunteer of the Year luncheon seen in the Reagan segments later) Segment 3 (silent): House on rocky coast above Pacific Ocean, blond woman wearing a Mod fashion raincoat with her dogs walking up the path around the house with her bags. Shot of KNTV car. Script reads, "Mrs. Marilyn Pauline Johnson, better known a Kim Novak, has retired to her Carmel highlands home or two weeks seclusion. Although she continues to remain silent regarding a possible divorce from her British actor husband, Richard Johnson, someone with the same legal name and marriage date has filed for divorce at the Monterey County Courthouse. Miss Novak, who truly believes in seclusion, spoke briefly with KNTV's Dennis Rowedder outside her Carmel retreat. She told him she is selling her home in Hollywood and is moving to Carmel. When asked about the possible divorce she said she feels that marriage is a contract between two people and its conclusion should be announced jointly. Miss Novak and her husband have been separated since February 5th. He is presumably in England. This was her first marriage and his second." Segment 4 (sound): Priest speaking at table with microphones about his decision to retire and spend more time on scholarship, writing and speaking. Script reads, "California's colorful and controversial Episcopal bishop -- the Right Reverend James A. Pike -- has handed in his resignation after eight years at the head of the Episcopal church in California. His resignation must still be approved by the Episcopal Church's House of Bishops before becoming final. Bishop Pike -- in making his announcement -- said he is no longer able to carry the dual role as leader of the church and scholar -- and he has chosen to devote full-time to the role as scholar. He said -- if his resignation is accepted -- he will accept a post as a member of the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions at Santa Barbara. Bishop Pike emphasized that he would remain a bishop of the church in his new function. Appearing before the congregation of Saint Francis Episcopal Church in San Jose tonight, Bishop Pike explained his decision and was asked what he would do if the bishops refused to accept his resignation." Reel 2: Combination of silent and sound segments about the draft board test (Selective Service Qualification Test) being given at San Jose State College and students' thoughts and preparation. Reporter Ron Halliday speaks to the camera from campus, interviews several students. Silent shots of the campus, people at informational tables, the Spartan book store, bookshelf displaying book on how to take the draft test, people purchasing the book. Script reads, "On Saturday thousands of students across the country will sharpen their pencils and minds for what may be the most important test in their lives. Channel 11's Bob Halliday reports from San Jose State..." Reel 3: Combination of silent and sound. Silent shots of Ronald and Nancy Reagan emerging from a car, being greeted with flowers. Cut to banquet hall interior, Reagan giving speech at podium, people clapping at their tables. Short sound clips from interview with Reagan regarding repeal of Proposition 14 and the California farm labor shortage. Script reads, "GOP gubernatorial hopeful Ronald Regan was in Santa Clara yesterday, speaking at the City's Woman Volunteer of the Year luncheon. The Reagan car caravan was 50 minutes late in arriving at the luncheon site, following a morning of campaigning in the north county. The candidate, flashing his familiar smile, but looking more haggard as the campaign continues, was accompanied by his wife Nancy, and a group of supporters. Reagan's wife was presented with a bouquet of roses, and a carnation was pinned on Reagan's lapel. Inside, Reagan received an enthusiastic welcome from nearly a thousand persons. He made what he termed, 'a non political address,' which expressed his concern over increased government. Turning to California politics, he urged Republicans to 'drop the labels of liberal and conservative, and seek to work together on common problems.' He charged state government is greater, yet doing less for Californians. He painted a picture of a state where business climate is deteriorating, the hands of police are tied, and communities are losing their sovereignty. Reagan insisted the state budget can be pared down, and asked for a system of paying the state's bills 'with an increase in prosperity, rather than an increase in taxes.' He drew applause when he announced he was vigorously opposed to police review boards, and in a following news conference, said he would favor sending the Rumford Act back to the legislature for repeal if it were the will of the people, following the legal repeal of Proposition 14 by the State Supreme Court yesterday. Reagan said he couldn't understand some of the logic used by the court in its decision. Reagan also indicated California farmers were in for another labor shortage this year." Reel 4: Segment 1 (sound): Interview with Lewis Braw (?) regarding farm labor shortage at Salinas Strawberries, and working conditions for laborers. Script reads, "California Director of Employment Albert B. Tieburg today endorsed a request from the Growers Farm Labor Association of Salinas for 1000 Mexican braceros for use by Salinas Strawberries, Incorporated. The braceros will be used to cultivate and harvest this year's strawberry crop. Tieburg has forwarded the application to Secretary of Labor Willard Wirtz, through the Department of Labor's Regional Bureau of Employment Security in san Francisco. Channel 11's Dennis Rowedder asked Lewis Braw the manager of the Salinas Farm Labor Employment Office how serious the labor shortage is." Segment 2 (silent): Exterior of the Seaboard Loans office with cars driving past; interior of office with employees milling around, smoking. Story reads, "From 1 to 300 dollars was taken from a San Jose finance company office late this afternoon y a lone gunman in a grey tweed overcoat. The Seaboard Finance Company office at 99 South Market reported the incident at approximately 3:45 this afternoon. The suspect walked into the office and told 19-year-old Jeri Bolbecker he would like to make a payment on his account. He gave his name as Albert Williams. Miss Bolbecker, a new employee at the office, could not find a listing of the account so she turned the matter over to another employee, 20-year-old Carol McPhaill. When Miss McPhaill attempted to wait on the suspect, he produced a revolver and demanded money. Miss McPhaill gave him all the money she had and the suspect fled out the door and south on Market Street. Police began an intensive search immediately upon arrival at the scene, but at this hour he has not been located. The suspect is described as a male Negro...about 35 year old...five-foot-eight inches in height, weighing about 160 pounds. When last seen, he was wearing a grey tweed overcoat over a black suit."
