Film of JFK on assassination day discovered
But I found a health plan to believe in!”
DALLAS (AP) — Long-lost television news film has emerged from the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, including the only known moving picture of Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson from that day.
The 45 minutes of silent 16mm footage — mostly unaired sequences or outtakes—also include a rate shot of Jack Ruby at Lee Harvey Oswald’s “press conference” die night the president was killed.
The film was secretly rescued from a Dallas-Fort Worth TV station’s trash, hidden beneath a house for years and largely forgotten after efforts to sell it languished, The Dallas Morning News reported today in a copyright story.
The footage by photographers from then-independent station KTVT apparently was overlooked or judged unimportant in die days after the assassination, as happened at other Dallas stations.
The film was generally thought to have been destroyed, but finally surfaced this month. Only a fraction of it has ever been shown publicly.
The black-and-white clips do not show the president’s motorcade under rifle fire in Dealey Plaza on Nov. 22,1963, and offer no obvious evidence toward settling the case’s many controversies.
But the film contains unique scenes before and after the assassination and represents an important addition to the historical record, according to the
few authorities who have viewed it.
Among the newly discovered moving pictures:
— the moment at Love Field when a beaming president and first lady, holding hands, approach their open-topped limousine for the ride through downtown Dallas.
— the stunned chaos as attention focused on the Texas School Book Depository;
— die immediate surge to find an assassin in the railroad yard behind the grassy knoll; and
— Vice President Johnson leaving the hospital after the president had been pronounced dead.
The film was nearly destroyed in a house fire a year ago.

“I’m a skeptic.
Barge ruptures in Houston Ship Channel
HOUSTON (AP) — The Texas General Land Office will expedite the formation of a Vessel Safety Task Force following Buffalo Marine Service Inc.’s second spill in about two months, a spokesman said.
Bob Mann, a spokesman for the General Land Office’s oil spill prevention and response division, said Monday that the task force had been on the drawing board But Sunday night’s spill means “it’s going to be stepped up even faster.”
The task force will study inspections, the loading of vessels, whether barges should be retired automatically at a certain age and other issues.
Members will include representatives from the Coast Guard, Environmental Protection Agency, industry and government, he said.
The Buffalo 286 barge buckled in the Houston Ship Channel, north of Galveston and east of Clear Lake, said Coast Guard Lt. Emile Benard.
Although the vessel carried about 667,000 gallons of intermediate fuel oil, only one or two of 12 tanks ruptured, Benard said. Each tank holds 2,500 barrels, roughly 105,000 gallons.
By late Monday, it was still unknown how much had spilled.
The Coast Guard said the spill was mostly contained by late Monday afternoon and was expected to be cleaned up with little damage to the environment.
The damaged, 27-year-old barge is owned by Houston-based Buffalo Marine. Two months ago, a 275-foot barge belonging to the same company similarly buckled and spilled more than 5,000 barrels of fuel oil into Galveston Bay.
The oil, which has roughly the consistency of chocolate syrup and can take weeks to dissipate, was estimated to be spread over an area three miles long and a half-mile wide.
The Buffalo 286 barge was outbound on the ship channel, headed to Port Arthur, when the accident occurred. Immediately afterward, the barge was able to reach a port about five miles away, where it was encircled with protective booms to contain the spill.
Frank Gonynor, a spokesman for Buffalo Marine, said the company did not immediately know what caused this incident.
