The realist [no.86]; Nov.-Dec., 1969

New York: The Realist Association, 1969. 32p., slightly misfolded with a short crack where the spinefold is rolled into a tube, edgeworn and browned. The Frank Bardacke essay on the Oakland 7 runs eight full double-column pages.

Lead stories on the Oakland 7 by Frank Bardacke & Hugh Romney on the Hog Farm. 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).
