SERVING TUCSON SINCE 1922 J 8 / J r' i i SAN FRANCISCO (UPI)-Gangs of Negro youths tossed rocks, set fires and disrupted classes Monday in the second consecutive day of scattered violence and vandalism in San Francisco. Most of the troubles were centered in the Hunters Point and Fillmore districts--scenes of last September's rioting. Police said they planned to keep reinforced patrols in readiness today as unseasonable hot weather continued. A few hours after sundown, a gang of about 50 Negro teenagers raced through the predominantly Negro Bayview area of Hunters Point, smashing car and store windows and assaulting pedestrians. Fires were started in a lumber yard and outside the office of a van lines agency. Responding police and firemen ·were stoned.

One were put out unidentified liquor store owner was attacked, but not seriously hurt. Police called the incidents "sporadic," but a spokesman added "we'll send additional units into Hunters Point if the situation demands it." At the height of the evening rush hour on a main downtown intersection, several youths smashed a plate glass jewelry store window with a hammer and fled with diamond ring valued at close to $25,000. Six arrests on malicious mischief charges were made in the Fillmore district where more youths hurled bricks through car windows and smashed some plate glass. Police Chief Thomas J. Cahill blamed the trouble on the high temperatures in this usually chilly city as well as "the restlessness of young boys." Gov. Ronald Reagan was advised of the latest incidents, but a spokesman for the governor said there had been no requests for assistance. Trouble first broke out Sunday night at the Playland Amusement Park by the Beach up protection for "black power" advocate Stokely Carmichael when he visits here Wednesday. Raids on suburban Belmont homes by police and FBI agents Sunday and Monday night u n c o v e r e d two submachine guns, 14 sticks of dynamite, semi-automatic rifles, ammunition, bombs, grenades and large artillery shells. Two men were arrested. The immediate fear of police was that an assassination of Carmichael was planned when the Negro arrives for speaking engagement. Authorities immediately began an investigation' of a possible link between the arsenal and Carmichael's visit but Sheriff Ronald Parsons Monday night said an FBI investigation failed to turn up any leads. Parsons said . a reinforced squad of policemen would be on hand Wednesday for Carmi chad's talk. The sheriff also said he expected to make more arrests and confiscate more weapons by the end of today. "We know there's a lot more machine guns out there," he said.

Parsons said he didn't know whether the weapons firing was part of a training exercise. "We heard a lot of different rumors and some of them are pretty fantastic." · "We've had fragments of, exploded grenades and shells) brought in as big as your hand," the, sheriff said. Richard Samrick, 22, and Gerald Bouman, 29, were arraigned on charges of possession of illegal weapons, but were released on their own recognizance. Parsons said they were very cooperative during questioning. The sheriff said the raids climaxed investigations that lasted almost two years. It was unknown whether''the weapons buildup was part of any political plot, he said. "I don't know if we'll ever know if this is definitely political," Parsons said. He said he 'was unable j to make any arrests before Sunday because of lack of evidence. Wouldn't you really rather drive a bargain? Buick Bargain Days are here! DID TUCSON' PLANS TO BUILD SOUND STA6E FOR FILM INDUSTRY $450,000 Investment, Through Sale of Shares. Will Expand Film Facilities Here \. *· ' · Motion picture production is big business- · it could be big industry for Tucson. Since 1915, every major studio in the industry has been' 'on location' in Southern Arizona. Some of the most successful 'westerns' were filmed here . . . "Red River", "Cimarron", "Duel in the Sun", "Oklahoma", "Strange Lady in Town". The "Tucson Daily Citizen", quoting "Variety", the show business newspaper,.pointed out that during the past two years, motion picture companies spent over $2,000,000 in Tucson . . . for local salaries, accommodations, meals, beverages, equipment rental, livestock rental... all needed to film pictures. Over 30 feature films, and dozens of television episodes, have been filmed here under Old Tucson's present management. The new television series,"High Chaparral", is beingfilmed hereNOW "Death Valley Days' 5 will filni several television episodes here this summer, if a sound stage is available. , , ··. And the demand for films is soaring! ,., : On February 20,1967, The Wall Street Journal said: "Last year, about 225 American-niade films were released;to movie houses-but in '3\ew York City alone, the si* TV stations telecast over 130 feature films in a single'week." ,, ; ; ..';'; . ; ' ' " ' ".''. ''""': '\. WHY IS A SOUND STAGE NEEDED IN TUCSON? Production costs can run as high as $25,000 a day - and companies don't want these costs continuing when they have to stop "shooting" because of poor weather or poor lighting conditions. With a sound stage.available, they simply move indoors and film .interior scenes, renting the sound stage for $500 ttx$l,000 a day. . With a sound stage, entire motion pictures can be made in Tucson - not just the outdoor scenes. AND MORE, TOO! Additional- historical and educational exhibits are .planned..... to make Old Tucson an even greater tourist . attraction . . .and increase the attendance and income.*,, .(Did you know that in 1966 more than 2 10,000 people visited Old Tucson!)
