Los Angeles: New Way Enterprises, 1974. Tabloid. Good. Item #014467
Side folding tabloid format. 28 pp., plus the A-T classified ads section (offering an apparent an A-T selection of adult entertainment). A later issue of this pioneering underground newspaper, known as the Freep. Established in 1964, the paper was known for its coverage of the counterculture movement and radical politics, as well as its strong anti-Vietnam War stance. Financial and staffing troubles led to its eventual demise in 1978. This issue with a piece on Timothy Leary and whether he is a cosmic snitch for being willing to testify against friends; an article on the trial of Native Americans in AIM and the government's use of an 1868 treaty from Wounded Knee; an interview with the leader of NOW, Jeanne Cordova; a piece on David Bowie; an essay on transvestites and the troubles they face on a daily basis, drawn from interviews; a few poems by Charles Bukowski in his Notes From a Dirty Old Man column, etc. GOOD+ condition. Moderate general browning. Paper slightly brittle. Minor wrinkling along the extremities.
