Hare & Hayakawa on-stage

About This Item

Scenes from a press conference at San Francisco State College, featuring a statement by Dr Joseph White that: "We are trying to alter the destiny of Higher Education in this country ... and I feel it is about time that the power structure in this country gets off this gun smoke game and comes to grips with the changing order of the times." President S.I. Hayakawa is shown delivering an academic advancement speech from a podium, which is interrupted by Dr Nathan Hare, members of the BSU (including Jerry Varnado) and other faculty who shout: "Down with the puppet!" and clamber on-stage in protest. Hare shouts: "Do you need police at an academic advancement? Why do you need policemen here?" Hayakawa replies: "Because of you Mr. Hare!" before the protesters are arrested and taken away by police. Also see KQN 241 and KT88.
