June 26, 1960: For the Fourth of July, the Beats of Venice plan to protest an ordinance against being on the beach between midnight and 6 a.m. by spending the night on the beach. Except there is no such city ordinance, police say. The beats also plan a Gilbert and Sullivan production, one-act plays by Tennessee Williams and other “hip writers,” poetry readings and an art auction.
