KNTV Channel 15 News Reels May 16, 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): Interview with John Gilbaugh, Dean of San Jose State College, about his "demotion" to a teaching role, conflict of philosophy in how state colleges should be controlled, whether he'll appeal the reassignment; he also claims that faculty at UC Berkeley have been involved in the free speech movement, and faculty at Stanford University have also been involved in student movements. Script reads, "What has been described as a 'feud' between the President of San Jose State College and the Dean of the College has been brought into the open. Dean John Gilbaugh has been notified that effective September 1st, he will be reassigned to a teaching role and will lose his deanship and be relieved of his administrative responsibilities. The reassignment came about as a result of college president Dr. Robert Clark's reorganization plan which eliminates the Dean of the College and in its stead has created a position of Academic Vice President. Dean Gilbaugh was not favored for the new position. We asked him today whether indeed this represents a 'feud': ...Dean Gilbaugh says at the other state colleges which have undergone reorganization the incumbent dean of the college has assumed the role of academic vice president. Gilbaugh's strongest criticism was saved not for the administration of the colleges, but for the faculties:" Segment 2 (silent): San Jose City Council meeting. Close-ups of council members, community members at microphone. Script reads, "San Jose's City Council tonight gave the green light to a combination city golf course and industrial park after fireworks erupted between Mayor Joseph Pace and the County Tax Payers Association. Under the plan -- approved tonight by the Council -- the city will buy about 200 acres in the Berryessa area between Old Oakland Road and Murphy Avenue. 143 acres will be turned into a city-owned golf course with the remaining land sold to industrial developers. Federal money is expected to help finance the project. Dale Scott - speaking for the County Tax Payers Association -- attacked the lease-purchase method of financing, and said the Council should give more consideration to general obligation bonds. Mayor Pace retorted that the Association doesn't really represent taxpayers...but a few big businessmen in San Jose. The project was approved with only Virginia Shaffer voting no. She claimed only a few people play golf. On another matter, the Council adopted a toned-down resolution praising the Police Department. It was a resolution which the Council rejected a week ago when it was first presented by ultra-conservative Charles Ripley. Ripley's resolution hinted that communists were crawling through the land undermining the police. Tonight the resolution was presented by Spencer Marquis. It aid the same thing, but in milder language. Councilman Robert Miller wanted to vote praise for the police, but objected to the inference about subversives. He and Councilman Clyde Fischer voted against the resolution. Miller later introduced a resolution commending the police. That won approval by everyone except Councilman Robert Welsch. Councilman Miller also said the San Jose City bus lines have obsolete equipment...and the Council directed the administration to come up with some ideas on improving service...including the possibility of a city-owned bus system." Reel 2: Segment 1 (silent): Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors meeting. Shots of Supervisors, speakers at the microphone, heated discussion. Close-up of a hand taking notes next to a pack of Kent cigarettes. Segment 2 (sound): Reporter Bob Marsden in front of the Santa Clara County Administration building, reporting on the Supervisors' meeting. Segment 3 (sound): Interview with Santa Clara County Assessor Dwight Mathieson who denies allegations, says they are unfounded, and he would welcome an investigation by the State Attorney General. Script reads, "Talk of a possible tax assessors' scandal in Santa Clara County again flared up this morning at the weekly meeting of the Board of Supervisors. Channel 11's Bob Marsden has the story... The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors this morning passed a watered-down resolution regarding the investigation into possible tax assessment irregularities during the past three years. The resolution requests the county counsel to ask the state attorney general's office to...number one...explain the differences in figures quoted by the Attorney General's office and figures quoted by the Santa Clara County Assessor's office pertaining to tax assessments of Fairchild Semiconductor during the past three years.. and.. .number two...confirm an offer to investigate the tax assessment records of the county. The resolution came following heated discussion between San Jose attorney John Thorne and County Assessor Dwight Mathieson. Thorne inferred that there is a distinct possibility that irregularities have occurred in tax assessments during the past and that they have not been brought out in the open. I asked Mathieson what would be his answer to this charge... During today's discussion, Supervisor Sig Sanchez was in favor of calling in the attorney general to investigate assessments...while Supervisor Sam Della Maggiore seemed to dismiss Thorne's theory as unfounded. Following the discussion...San Jose attorney John J. Hayes asked the Board to adopt a resolution stating that it had complete confidence that there were no irregularities in County assessment practices. The Board adopted the resolution with little or no debate. This is Bob Marsden, reporting from the Santa Clara County Administration Building." Reel 3: Segment 1 (silent): Protesters with banners reading, "Say no to napalm" across from an outdoor site with storage tanks and stacks of crates; police car arriving; man carrying U.S. flag; protesters lying down on ground. Story reads, "Two demonstrators were arrested this morning as they protested the manufacture of napalm by United Technology Center in Redwood City. For over a week, demonstrators rom various South Bay peace groups have been conducting a silent vigil in front of the manufacturing site on Harbour Blvd in Redwood City. This morning, the silence ended with a display of civil disobedience. Pa Alto psychiatrist Oliver Henderson arrived, with the announced intention of 'stopping the war machine.' When a truck, carrying cannisters to be filled with the deadly fire jelly rolled to the main gate, Henderson, and another demonstrator, Alan Traister, were waiting. For a tense ten minutes, the two held off the truck, until the arrival of Police Chief William Paulstich and Deputy Chief Ted Medagus. After asking Henderson to let the truck thru, the officers forcibly moved him. He attempted to return to the front of the truck, but was restrained. As the vehicle attempted to move forward, Traister, and another demonstrator, Aaron Manganiello threw themselves in front of the truck. Traister was carried off, but, struggling and kicking, he freed himself, and again threw himself in front of the truck. The truck attempted to back off, but Manganiello hung on to the bumper, and was ragged for ten feet. Meanwhile, Henderson returned to the front of the truck, and refused to leave. The officers then placed him under arrest, and Deputy Chief Medagus led him to a waiting patrol car. Henderson was booked for creating a public nuisance, and is now free on bail. Manganiello was also arrested on the same charges. Both men will appear in municipal court n May 24th for arraignment. The remaining demonstrators promise more action tomorrow, a day before their attorneys are to appear in Superior Court to ask Redwood City be forced to hold a referendum on the napalm manufacture issue." Segment 2 (silent): Greyhound Bus Depot in San Jose, exterior of Greyhound sign, parked buses, Peerless Stages boarding area, Greyhound schedule. Script reads, "A tentative meeting has been se for Wednesday afternoon in efforts to end the eleven state Greyhound bus strike. In San Jose, the local Greyhound terminal is at its quietist in years. The waiting room, usually teeming with lines was nearly vacant today. Peerless Stage, connecting San Jose with Santa Cruz and Oakland, was still operating. But ticket offices were closed and people had to buy tickets from bus drivers. The Bay Area seems to be hardest hit by the walkout. Over 5000 drivers and ticket agents walked out Sunday morning, halting 1500 buses, including 400 commuter buses. 25,000 commuters and other travelers in the Bay Area had to turn to trains, or to carpools. The highway patrol said freeway traffic into San Francisco was exceptionally heavy. "
