The realist [no.86] Nov.-Dec., 1969. [featuring] The Oakland 7 by Frank Bardacke, Hugh Romny on The Hog Farm

the monthly, New York. 1969, 32p., wraps, paper browned, faint signs of handling, 8x11 inches. The Frank Bardacke essay runs eight full double-column pages, Romney fourteen pages. 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).
