San Jose: Concern, But Still Good Humor Ggtesburg R&Qistep'AAQil, Galesbufg, Monday, June 25, T973 J f By WES PEYTON The ttaomsayers both amateur and professional are having a field day with the Watergate revelations, which, First in a Scries heaven knows, are distressing enough, but It remains arguable that the Republic Is about to go the way of the Roman Empire. As 1973 pushes inexorably into summer, the mood in. Son Jose, is surprisingly good humored, even optimlsiiilc. This Is not to say that Wa- lorgaite has left the average San Josoan untouched. To the cowbrary, the sense of hurt, disgust — even betrayal — is real enough. What the mood doesn't encompass, however, is despair. President Nixon, who carried San Jose handily in 1972, might have a rougher time ait the polls if the elec­ tion were to be rerun tomorrow. ON THE OTHER hand, ho might not — especially if he wore pitted against Sen-. George McGovem again. The average San Joscan, that hypothetical distillate of doctor, lawyer, merchant, chief, housewife, student, engineer, 'waitress and shoe salesman, is angry about Watergate, but he remains FECI DRY CLEANING iirillf 111 OFFER GOOD TUES., JUNE 26 THRU SAT., JUNE 30 GARMENTS Sorry . . .No Formats or Suedes Pleats Extra NO LIMIT — CASH & CARRY Beautifully Cleaned The CLEANEJLS 'is 4; DRIVE-IN SERVICE 262 N. Prairie St. convinced, even If he doesn't put the feeling Into so many words, that the nation Is strong enough'to absorb chi- canory of even this magnitude and still survive Intact. life, in short, goes on, and in San Jose it has a habit of going on quite comfortably for most folks, thank you. To understand why this is so requires a brief look at San Jose arid the men and women It produces or attracts — and sustains. AS A GENERALITY, the average San Josoan considers the pursuit of happiness a perfectly reasonable enterprise. To him the good life is not only something he can hope to attain, it is something he can define for himself with a minimum of interference from his neighbors. The reasons for" this are as much historic and cultural as economic. For example: San Jose is ;an old town; in fact,'- it 'is California's oldest settlement. About 17 per cent of its citizens still bear Spanish surnames. San Jose is a polyglot of ethnic and cultural mixes, and its mayor is a Japanese-American with the Italian sounding name of Norman Mineta. San Jose is a big town. Indeed, it is California's fourth largest city. It is served by three universities and a clutch of community colleges, and its industry produces everything from tortillas and Plntos (Ford variety) .to computers and nuclear reactors. SAN JOSE IS the sort of place where a> citizen can, when properly motivated; still be persuaded to vote school bonds — even though that requires, a two-thirds majority in California — and tax himself for 10 years to buy and develop new parks and recreation areas. The average San Josean is, in sum, a relatively unselfconscious sophisticate, unflappable Without being smug, an individual who finds it ak most second nature to blend passion with perspective.

It was, for example, the first capital when California was admitted to the Union in 1850 but lost that honor because of among other things, a lack of decent rooming houses. San Jose has endured earthquake, flood, fire amd every Washington administration since Millard Fillmore's and has still kept its sense of history and humor. IT IS NO accident, surely, that the Santa Clara County district attorney's last five attempts to close down San Jose's premier topless-bottomless lounge and hard core porno movie house have resulted in three acquittals and two hung juries. San Joseans tare a live-and-let live tat. They seem to know instinctively that life is for living and that getting there isn't half the fun: it's all the fun. To expect this crowd to misread the seamier side of human nature for the apocalypse is wholly unreasonable. They just won't do it, although they will invariably give Chicken Little a courteous hearing and invite him in for a drink before sending him about his business. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
