The following events occurred in September 1967:

September 1, 1967 (Friday)

  • The Khartoum Resolution was passed by the eight member nations of the Arab League as their leaders met in Khartoum, the capital of the Sudan. The United Arab Republic (Egypt), Syria and Jordan, all of whom lost territory in the Six-Day War, were joined by Algeria, Lebanon, Iraq, Kuwait and the Sudan in approving a series of pledges regarding a common policy toward the nation of Israel. In the process, the existence of a common enemy brought the Arab states closer together and allowed them to resolve their own disputes. Egypt's President Gamal Abdel Nasser dropped further plans to overthrow the monarchies in Saudi Arabia and its neighbors. The adherents to the resolution agreed on seven points—continued planning for war against Israel, ending the boycott of oil exports to the United States and the United Kingdom, ending participation in the Yemen Civil War, rebuilding of Egypt and Jordan, and "the three no's"—"no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, and no negotiations with the Israelis".[1]
  • At a rally in Beijing, leaders of the Chinese Communist Party reprimanded the Red Guards for burning both the Soviet and British diplomatic missions in August, and told the crowd that violence had done "great damage to the Cultural Revolution." According to a radio broadcast made two days later, the Guards were directed to cease violence entirely, an order that the revolutionaries were slow to respond to.[2]
  • At the close of a nine-day meeting in Prague, the delegates to the International Astronomical Union voted to delay the naming of locations on the far side of the Moon for three years, and to set up a special committee that would consider names and deliver its recommendations at the next IAU conference, scheduled for 1970 at the University of Sussex in England.[3]

Learning that British courts had ruled that the UK had no jurisdiction over the 660 square yards (550 square meters) platform, Bates proclaimed the location as the Principality of Sealand, an independent micronation. The sovereignty of Sealand, located about 7 1/2 miles away from Felixstowe off of the coast of the English county of Suffolk, is not recognized by any other nation.[6][7]

  • In Centreville, Mississippi, 25 armed members of the African-American group Deacons for Defense intervened when a mob of white supremacists attempted to disrupt a demonstration for black voting rights in Wilkinson County. When one of the white members pointed a gun at the demonstrators, the group from Natchez began unloading weapons and the mob dispersed without incident. According to one activist, "hearing the name 'Deacons for Defense' invoked was almost as effective in scattering the racist mob as the guns".[17]
  • West Germany amended its patent law to allow protection for chemical patents, including those for pharmaceutical medicines.[18]
  • Michigan Governor George Romney, who was considering a run for the Republican Party nomination for the presidency in 1968, appeared on "The Lou Gordon Show" on Detroit's WKBD-TV for an interview, and was asked to explain why he had changed his position from support to opposition of the Vietnam War and said that when he and other American politicians were given a tour of South Vietnam in 1965, "I just had the greatest brainwashing that anybody can get when you go over to Vietnam, not only by the generals, but also by the diplomatic corps."[19][20] "For all practical purposes", a historian would write later, "that single honest remark removed Romney from serious presidential consideration."[21]

  • The CBS television network censored The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, in advance of the evening broadcast, by editing out the performance of Pete Seeger's antiwar song "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy". Seeger, who had been blacklisted from commercial television 17 years, had been allowed to perform the song before the studio audience, the tape shown on television only showed Seeger performing the song "Winoweh" and Tommy Smothers asking Seeger if he was going to sing "that song". The tape then showed a closeup of Seeger's face, and skipped to the next portion of the program.[51] The CBS objection had been Seeger's closing verse, "Now every time I read the papers/That old feelin' comes on/We're waist deep in the Big Muddy/And the big fool says to push on." Executives at CBS considered the words to be an obvious insult directed at President Johnson.[52] After criticism in the press, the song would be allowed in the rerun of the show on February 25, 1968.[53]

Unlike previous landers, Surveyor 5 would also respond immediately to a reactivation command after two weeks in deep freeze during a lunar night period.[59] On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 would land in the Mare Tranquillitatis at a location only 15 miles (24 km) from Surveyor 5.[60]

  • CIA Director Richard Helms presented U.S. President Johnson with a classified report titled "Implications of an Unfavorable Outcome in Vietnam", prepared by analysts in the Office of National Estimates. According to the analysis, "failure would not come as a result of a complete military and political collapse of the U.S. effort in Vietnam, but would evolve from the likely compromise solution that would result from a peace settlement... to the advantage of the Vietnamese Communists". Moreover, the CIA told Johnson, there would be "permanent damage... to the United States in the international arena", internal dissension within the U.S., and destabilization of the other non-Communist nations in Southeast Asia.[62]

  • Vladimir Tkachenko, a 25-year old Soviet physicist who was working at Birmingham University in the United Kingdom, was abducted from the streets of London by two agents of the Soviet KGB intelligence agency, apparently because the Russians believed that he was preparing to defect to the West. After witnesses saw him forcibly being carried into the Soviet Embassy, police from Scotland Yard intervened. Tkachenko had been drugged and driven to Heathrow Airport and was seen being forcibly put on to an Aeroflot jet, and the police stopped the plane from leaving and took him into protective custody.[74] Two days later, after Tkachenko himself protested while in a psychiatric hospital, police returned him to the Soviet Embassy and allowed him to return to Moscow.[75][76][77]

Roughly 5,000 fans of Sivasspor had traveled from Sivas to attend. In the 20th minute, Küçük Oktay scored a goal for Kayseri, and a fight broke out between players from both teams. The referee issued a red card to eject one of the Kayseri players, then reversed his decision and allowed the player to stay. Fans then began to throw rocks at each other, and thousands of Sivas fans began rushing toward the exit gates, where those in front were crushed by the press of the crowd behind them. Outside the stadium and on the highway back home, Sivas vandalized cars that had Kayseri Province license tags. Over the next several days, violent riots took place in Sivas and in Kayseri.[80]

  • Jim Morrison of The Doors defied CBS in a live telecast of The Ed Sullivan Show, after initially agreeing to a producer's request to alter the lyrics to their #1 hit, Light My Fire. Morrison had been asked to change the lyric "Girl, we couldn't get much higher" to "Girl, we couldn't get much better", out of the production staff's fear concern about the word "high" being associated with drug abuse. Given that the word "better" did not rhyme with "You know that I would be a liar", Morrison sang the word anyway. According to one account, "Afterwards, the production staff informed the group that they had been ready to book them on a further six shows. Now, however, they were banned from The Ed Sullivan Show."[84]

  • Love Is a Many Splendored Thing debuted on U.S. daytime television and would become the first soap opera to deal with an interracial relationship. The show was a sequel of sorts to the popular 1955 film of the same name and the bestselling 1952 autobiographical novel A Many-Splendoured Thing by Dr. Han Suyin, and the main character, played by Nancy Hsueh, was the Amerasian daughter of the Chinese doctor and the American war correspondent in the film. However, the show would become controversial when Hsueh, as Mia Elliott, began a romantic relationship with a white character, and would be written out of the show by the spring of 1968.

  • The cruise ship RMS Queen Mary departed from New York City for its 500th and last time, leaving the Cunard Line Pier with a sendoff ceremony marked by thousands of people cheering and waving and a performance by the 55-man U.S. Merchant Marine Academy band.[104] A reporter noted that "The noisy sendoff contrasted with the Mary's routine departure from Southampton, England, on Sept. 16.... Then only a couple of hundred sightseers lined the dockside and music was supplied through the ship's loudspeaker system."[105]
  • Born: Félix Savón, Cuban heavyweight boxer, three-time Olympic gold medalist (1992, 1996 and 2000) and winner of seven world amateur championships between 1986 and 1997; in San Vicente, Guantánamo Province

September 23, 1967 (Saturday)

  • Israel officially renamed the recently captured West Bank as the Judea and Samaria Area. "Samaria" was the land north of Jerusalem, conforming to land within the ancient Kingdom of Israel, while "Judea" was on land formerly occupied by the ancient Kingdom of Judah, including East Jerusalem and occupied land to the south.[106]
  • Voters in New Zealand overwhelmingly favored a measure to end the limits that had engendered the "Six o'clock swill", where bar patrons drank heavily after getting off of work because alcoholic beverages could not be legally sold after 6:00 in the evening. Given a choice of two closing hours for hotel bars, voters favored extending the time to 10:00 at night by a margin of 582,234 to 328,748.[107] At the beginning of World War I, the limitation had been in place in New Zealand and Australia as an emergency measure; a previous attempt at repeal in New Zealand had failed in 1949.[108] On the same ballot, the nation's first Constitutional Referendum was held on the issue of whether to amend the national constitution to extend the term of members of parliament (and the maximum allowable number of years between elections) from three years to four years.[109] By a 2 to 1 margin (641,623 against and 290,298 for), voters rejected the amendment and decided to keep things the same.[110]
  • A group of 14 teenagers in Tucson, Arizona, helped rescue patients from a fire at the Craycroft Nursing Home. The students had been dining at an all-night diner at 2:00 in the morning when they saw emergency vehicles racing to the scene of the fire, and arrived in two carloads, going into the burning building and carrying, leading or pulling patients out. Of the 57 persons inside, 53 were saved.[111]
  • Born: Masashi Nakayama, Japanese soccer football player and forward for the Japan national team, 1990 to 2003; in Fujieda, Shizuoka

September 24, 1967 (Sunday)

September 25, 1967 (Monday)

  • Seventeen children in the Mexican city of Tijuana were killed by poison, after eating breakfast, and another people 574 hospitalized. Initially, investigators believed that the milk they had consumed had been tainted[118] but the deaths were soon traced to bread that had been contaminated by parathion, an insecticide that had been stored in a bakery supply warehouse. Contaminated flour and sugar had been shipped to nine bakeries, which in turn distributed its products to retail outlets around the city.[119][120]
  • In Milan, a gang of criminals led by Pietro Cavallero were carrying out their 17th bank robbery when Italian police spotted Cavallero and his three accomplices fleeing in a getaway car. Four people were killed and 22 injured in the chase that followed; Adriano Rovoletto, the car driver, was captured after trying to hide in a crowd. Donato Lopez was captured the next day at his home, and Cavallero and Sante Notarnicola would be arrested on October 3 after eight days on the run. Director Carlo Lizzani would adapt the story to a film, Banditi a Milano (Bandits in Milan).[121][122]
  • Died: Biafra's military strategist, General Victor Banjo, 37, and Major Emmanuel Ifeajuna, 32, were executed along with two other officers after being convicted on charges of treason in retreating from Nigerian troops in the Western Region.[123]

September 26, 1967 (Tuesday)

September 27, 1967 (Wednesday)

  • The RMS Queen Mary arrived in Southampton at the end of her last transatlantic crossing. The ship had departed Southampton on September 16 for New York, arriving on September 21; it departed the next day back to Southampton with a sendoff ceremony marked by thousands of people cheering and waving from the Cunard Line pier and the 55-man U.S. Merchant Marine regimental band performing.
  • Canada broke with the United States for the first time over Vietnam War policy, as External Affairs Minister Paul Martin addressed the United Nations General Assembly, suggesting that the U.S. make an unconditional halt to the bombing of North Vietnam. "All attempts to bring about talks between the two sides", Martin said, "are doomed to failure unless the bombing is stopped."[127][128]
  • All seven people on an Aero Commander 500 shuttle plane were killed when the aircraft crashed into a bike rack outside of Bradfield Elementary School at the Dallas suburb of Highland Park, Texas. Nobody on the ground was injured because classes had been dismissed 20 minutes earlier for a teacher's meeting. On a regular school day, hundreds of children would have been leaving the building at 3:30, when the plane hit. "If this had happened any day but Wednesday", a teacher told reporters, "all of the kids would have been out by the bicycle rack."[129] The pilot, Verner Denman, Jr., apparently made a nose dive into Mockingbird Lane to avoid striking homes. The Dallas County fire marshal praised Denman, saying "It could have been much worse if he had hit some of these houses here, or the middle of the school" (where a teacher's meeting was taking place, 50 feet from the crash site) and added "I think he knew he was going to die and said 'well, let's end it the best way.'"[130]
  • In Belgrade, the International Astronautical Congress held the first meeting of the CETI (Communication with extraterrestrial intelligence) Organizing Committee, composed of ten delegates from the United States, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Sweden.[131]
  • The Soviet Union's first attempt to send a lunar probe in orbit around the Moon failed during the launch of the Soyuz 7K-L1, due to human error. Because engineers at the launchpad had failed to remove a cover, one of the six engines on the Proton rocket failed to ignite and the rocket and its payload went off course. The rocket was destroyed by ground control 97 seconds after launch.[132]
  • Died: Felix Yusupov, 80, Russian aristocrat who participated in the 1916 assassination of Grigori Rasputin

September 28, 1967 (Thursday)

Washington, Mayor of Washington
  • Walter E. Washington was sworn in as the first Mayor of Washington, D.C. in a ceremony at the White House. President Johnson used the occasion to announce the nominations of the nine members of the first Washington, D.C. city council, five of whom were African-American and four of whom were white.[134]

    • Moon Zappa, American actress, in New York City, as the daughter of singer Frank Zappa
  • Died: Lt. Col. Untung Syamsuri, 41, Indonesian Army officer who had commanded the Palace Guard for President Sukarno until his 1965 attempt to overthrow the government, was executed by a firing squad.[135]

September 29, 1967 (Friday)

  • Speaking in Texas at San Antonio to the National Legislative Conference, U.S. President Johnson told his audience, "I am ready to talk tomorrow with Ho Chi Minh and other chiefs of state" to discuss an ending to the Vietnam War, but added that an immediate halt to bombing would happen only if he believed that it would "lead promptly to productive discussion", and that "It is by Hanoi's choice— not ours, not the world's— that war continues." Earlier in the speech, Johnson gave his reasons for a continued fight: "I cannot tell you— with certainty— that a southeast Asia dominated by communist power would bring a third world war closer to terrible reality", he said, "But all that we have learned in this tragic century strongly suggests that it would be so. As the President of the United States, I am not prepared to gamble on the chance that it is not so... I am convinced that by seeing this struggle through now, in Vietnam, we are reducing the chances of a larger war— perhaps a nuclear war."[136] The North Vietnamese government would subsequently reject what would be referred to as "The San Antonio Formula" for peace.[137]
  • In an outdoor professional boxing bout at Shea Stadium, Emile Griffith of the United States recaptured the title that he had lost to Nino Benvenuti on April 17. Griffith would lose to the title back to Benvenuti on March 4.[138]
  • The classic sci-fi TV series Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons was broadcast for the first time, on ITV
  • Died: Carson McCullers (pen name for Lula Carson Smith McCullers), 50, American novelist and playwright, died of a brain hemorrhage

September 30, 1967 (Saturday)

  • In the United Kingdom, BBC Radio completely restructured its national programming, with the inauguration of four new networks. Radio 1, introduced by its first disc jockey, Tony Blackburn, modeled its pop music format on successful pirate radio stations.[139] Radio 2 featured music formerly heard on the Light Programme. Radio 3 adopted the cultural format formerly heard on the Third Programme. Finally, Radio 4 followed the talk radio and news format formerly heard on the Home Service.[140]
  • The Chinese Communist Party announced a new campaign against "renegades", "capitalist roaders", and "agents of foreign imperialism". The anti-foreigner campaign would reach the point where non-Chinese could be charged with espionage if they photographed posters or bought Red Guard publications.[141]
  • Died: Hannah Milhous Nixon, 82, mother of former Vice-President and future U.S. President Richard M. Nixon.[142]
