At head of the issue: Teddy Kennedy does the breast stroke. The Oakland 7 was the most important anti-draft demo of the period. His account "contains," he starts, "some hitherto unrevealed dirt, a few laughs, a smattering of politics, and a confession or two. I have been an Oakland 7 for some time now, and as you read on, you will learn a lot about me. But this is not a story of my life.. Alameda County District Attorney J. Frank Coakley created the Oakland 7 a year and a half ago. He indicted seven leaders of October 1967's Stop the Draft Week for conspiracy to commit three misdemeanors.." Story is accompanied by a Beetle Bailey lampoon (Beetle killed with his guts hanging out). // There's a second cover story by Hugh Romney [Wavy Gravy] on Hog Farm. Supplement 86-A is a report on Cuba by Michael Myerson with a crinkled and torn top edge. Cover story of supplement 86-B by Robert Wolf, "Reporter at small," the people he heard at meeting of psychics and UFOlogists, 2p. Plus a page of Saul Heller's musings and a pretty good back page Guindon cartoon, Nixon and Agnew as the midnight cowboys (Nixon, looking resentful: "And stop calling me Ratso")
