  •  Owsley: Clinton Owsley, public service director for the City of Houston, comments on the upcoming mayoral race, during which former Houston mayor Lewis Cutrer unsuccessfully challenged incumbent Louie Welch.

  •  Charter Comm 
  •  An identified man arrives at the police station, where he gives a statement 
  •  Sayers Indicted: A prosecuting attorney speaks with reporters following a hearing regarding Harris County Commissioner Philip E. Sayers. On October 27, a grand jury indicted Sayers on misdemeanor charges of using the labor of county employees for his personal benefit. He served on the Commissioners Court from 1948 to 1968.  
  •  Osten Scraps: An unidentified woman expresses her disbelief that Jerry Michael Ward, a 22-year-old former hospital orderly, was responsible for the murder of Joyce Osten, an 18-year-old Westbury High School student. Osten was last seen on the morning of October 18 when she dropped off her mother at the shopping center where she worked. Osten’s father notified authorities after he found her abandoned car in the same parking lot that night. Undergarments were found in the back seat. Law enforcement officers found Osten’s body in a pasture on October 19.  
  •  KHOU reporter Ron Stone asks authorities about the events leading up to Ward’s arrest on October 30. Ward was convicted of the rape-murder of Osten on September 27, 1966, and sentenced to death. At trial, police chemist Floyd McDonald testified that hair found on Osten’s body matched Ward’s. The case thus became the first in Texas to admit nuclear activation analysis into evidence, setting legal precedent.  
  •  United States Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach presses Houston to integrate its public schools 
  •  Graham: Crowds fill the Astrodome to hear a sermon by Christian evangelist Billy Graham. Graham was in Houston in November 1965 for a 10-day “crusade,” or evangelistic campaign.

  •  Astronauts: Crowds greet astronauts Jim Lovell and Frank Borman upon their arrival at Ellington Air Force Base. The pair were most likely returning to the Manned Spacecraft Center following their Gemini 7 mission, completed in December 1965.  
  •  Lovell runs straight to his family

This film from KHOU-TV Channel 11 in Houston contains a series of short news segments that would have aired as highlights to news stories. Many are silent and would have been voiced over by the anchorperson during a live broadcast. The titles for each segment are the originals created by KHOU-TV. The clips on this reel all date from October through December 1965. This series includes news segments about the indictment of Harris County Commissioner Philip Sayers, an arrest in the Joyce Osten murder case, and the return of Gemini 7 astronauts Jim Lovell and Frank Borman.
The digital preservation of this collection was made possible by a grant to the Texas Archive of the Moving Image and the Houston Public Library from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
 
Many more films from the KHOU-TV Collection are available on the Houston Public Library Houston Area Digital Archives website.
