The realist [no.84]; November, 1968. Eric Hoffer is a true believer.

New York: The Realist Association, 1968. 24p., wraps, paperstock browned, mild edgewear.

Two cover stories, one "The trial of Abbie Hoffman's shirt," 5p., annotated excerpted trial transcript; Abbie's "garb," in the language of the court, was cut from an American flag, had political buttons pinned on. The other even more significant, Ellen Sander's 6p. photo-illustrated story of the Plaster Casters, "The case of the cock-sure groupies." Sanders sometimes put her press pass to work for the two young women and gained their confidence. "Originally, pseudonyms were to be used in this article. Now, however, the girls want not only their correct names published, but also their photo [this text by Krassner captions a 4.5 x 3 inch snapshot] because of the increasing imposter problem" [names &c follow]. Sanders discusses the imposter problem as eyewitness and also confidante. Second photo is of a display, five castings in a row, Jimi Hendrix, Noel Redding, a road manager, and a couple of student friends. There is a third story, concerns misconduct in the medical profession, from the unethical to the criminal.
