(Studio) Report on radicalism of 1960's.
REPORTER: Ted Koppel

(Berkeley, California) People's Park near University California at Berkeley shown. Film of May 1969 shows clashes between students and National Guard with regard to park. University wanted dorms built there; students wanted park. 1 killed; others hurt in violence. Few attend rallies here. Little attention paid to political candidates and there are few demonstration notices. [MAN - says things quieted down.] [2nd MAN - says too much going on to worry about rallies.] Popularity of bus. administration classes noted. [WOMAN - talks to man about job.] [U. job dir., Herb SALINGER - says more students looking for business and industry jobs.] Ex-pol. activist, Mike Smith, is now legal adviser to University chancellor. [SMITH - says students today are more pragmatic and less idealistic.] Sororities and fraternities and intramural sports become popular again. Lack of war and draft, more tolerant administration and tight job market account for attitude change.
