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 San Jose Bees PR man Larry Glismann, who lists all of the Bees' upcoming games, including one at Candlestick Park. Script reads, "A crowd of 2000 were on hand to watch the Bees open their weekend series with Fresno. The same two teams will go at it again tomorrow night, which is Senior Citizens Night. Today I talked to the Bees' publicity man, Larry Glismann, and ask him about the big baseball weekend ahead." Segment 2 (silent): Two young African-American women model white bathing suits inside a small banquet room; shots of them walking in suits, and seated. Cut to a close-up of drums, and a band on stage with a young African-American child singing in a lounge jacket. Script reads, "The Miss Tan Contest is set for this Sunday in San Jose and today some of the contestants went through their paces in rehearsal. The girls from five counties will compete Sunday in the Empire Room of the Sainte Claire Hotel for the title of Miss Tan. The winner will go on to the national finals in Dallas. Santa Clara County's entry is 19year old Judy Devers, s student at Contra Costa College. Mrs. Vickie Norman -- co-sponsor of the event -- with Archie More -- showed the girls how to walk before the judges. Also on the program is five-year old Dion Clinton Overstreet, whose claim to fame is an appearance on ABC's 'Where the Action Is.' He is not expected to cop top honors in the beauty section." Segment 3 (silent): San Jose City Council meeting inside nearly empty chambers. Script reads, "The San Jose City Council met in abbreviated session tis morning, just long enough to start some fireworks...over fireworks. The Councilmen and almost agreed to allow a fourth of July block party, but to deny a request for fireworks to a neighborhood group. Then Councilman Robert Miller spoke up. He advocated a city ordinance to permit fireworks in residential areas. Councilwoman Virginia Schaffer argued this is illegal. The battle started, and before it was over, City Attorney Ferdinand Palla found himself in the middle. Miller called for an emergency ordinance to be drawn up to allow the fireworks. Mrs. Schaffer asked, 'With these votes?' Miller retorted he could have an ordinance drawn up any time he wanted, at the discretion of Mr. Palla. Councilwoman Schaffer cleared her throat, and said icily, 'You're doing better than I am, then.' With that, the city fathers & Mrs. Schaffer adjourned." Segment 4 (sound): Interview with Sam Yorty, who refers to the "Brown machine" and "influence" and says, "I'm not surprised by anything they do." Script reads, "The charge that the Christopher headquarters in San Jose had had its telephone tapped continue to reverberate around the state. The telephone company denies any evidence of a tap. A private investigator insists there was a tap. And even in Los Angeles, Mayor Sam Yorty, Governor Brown's Democratic opponent, commented on it." Reel 2: Segment 1: (silent + sound): Shots of people registering to vote at outdoor tables, voting booths, putting ballots into ballot boxes. Followed by interview in front of bookshelves with Dr. John Galm, who says he's pleased with the results of the election and that it is evidence that faculty recognize the benefits of collective bargaining, and they will be moving towards collective bargaining on state college campuses. Script reads, "The president of San Jose State Local 1362 of the American Federation of Teachers said today that yesterday's collective bargaining election on the campus, although not conclusive, was a victory for his organization. Dr. John Galm, Assistant Professor of English, made the statement this morning following tabulation of the near-tie vote. The election, which was held over a two-day period, drew 675 members of the faculty of 1100. 345 voted against collective bargaining on the campus and 328 voted against, with 68 absentee ballots yet to be counted. 242 faculty members selected AFT as its preference for a bargaining agent. 153 voted for the Association of California State College Professors, and 175 votes were disbursed among several other write-in bargaining agents. Channel 11 news asked Galm for his reaction to the election. Galm added that petition drives are underway to select bargaining agents for Los Angeles State, San Diego State, Fullerton State, and Long Beach State. An election similar to that held locally was held yesterday at San Fernando State and an election of this type is scheduled for early fall at San Francisco State." Segment 2 (silent): Students marching with flags and pots of flowers near Rosicrucian Park for Memorial Day. Script reads, "Memorial Day was observed early in most San Jose schools. The Monday holiday will mean a day away from classes for most youngsters. Students at San Jose's Hoover Junior High School held their own Memorial Day observance. In a colorful ceremony, flag bearing boys accompanied flower carrying girls to the front of the school. There, the flowers, cut from the Hoover School gardens, were deposited on the school's front steps. It's an annual custom, with most of the school youngsters having participated in some way. Later, the flowers were taken to veteran's organization headquarters. They will be placed on veteran's graves on Memorial Day." Reel 3 (silent + sound): Silent shots of men milling around an orchard, one wearing a fedora hat and smoking a pipe. Some of them are taking notes. A few men in automobiles arrive, speaking through car windows. Followed by sound interviews with several of the men who comment on smoke in the distance, and sounds they've heard from their location...comment on land use. Script reads, "Noise occupied the morning for the County Board of Supervisors, Planning Commissioners, and city officials from Morgan Hill and San Jose. They met to hear a series of explosions, set off by the FMC Corporation. FMC seeks rezoning of Sheldon Ranch land near Morgan Hill for a test site. The move has been vigorously opposed, and is again in the hands of the County Planning Commission. Today's blasts were to answer the questions of noise and nuisance. A pre-blast explosion almost broke out when attorney Al Ruffo, representing the land owner, and Tony Anastasi, representing the adjacent Lakeside Properties, tangled with each other. Anastasi wanted to send in observers, Ruffo maintained, 'We're not going to let anyone in.' Ruffo later relented. The officials were sent to widely separated observation points, then the firing began. Each recorded his impressions on a tally sheet. Several of the explosions sent a cloud of dust in the air. We asked Ruffo what they showed. Supervisor Sig Sanchez, whose First District encompasses the land, says he's concerned with land use, not noise. San Jose City Manager A. P. Hamann was an interested observer. If the rezoning s granted, it's no secret that both San Jose and Morgan Hill will seek to annex the suddenly valuable ranchland in the rolling hills."
