Descrizione:

22 + (2) PAGES. THERE IS AN HORIZONTAL CREASE ACROSS THE NEWSPAPER AS EVIDENCE OF THE FOLDED CONDITION AS IT WAS SOLD ON THE STREETS OF CHICAGO IN 1968. THERE IS A FAINT STAIN (WATER?) AT THE BOTTOM OF SOME PAGES THAT DOES NOT AFFECT THE TEXT OR CONTENTS. THE PAPER IS BEGINNING TO TONE FROM AGE, OTHERWISE, THE CONDITION WOULD BE CONSIDERED FINE. THE FRONT COVER IS A PROFILE OF MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. WITH A PORTION OF HIS "I HAVE A DREAM" SPEECH. OF INTEREST, THE NEWSPAPER IS TITLED "THE CHICAGO SEED" RATHER THAN SIMPLY "THE SEED." THIS ISSUE, PROBABLY EARLY APRIL, 1968, CONTAINS CONSIDERABLE MATERIAL ABOUT THE "YIPPIES" ASSEMBLY PLANS TO ATTEND THE DEMOCRATIC (PARTY OF DEATH) NATIONAL CONVENTION IN CHICAGO IN AUGUST, 1968. THE YIPPIE ARTICLES ARE SIGNED MOSTLY WITH PSEUDONYMS SUCH AS THE ARTICLE ENTITLED "BAREFOOT YIPPIE IN THE PARK" BY "TREEMAN" AND HIS ENCOUNTER WITH A CHICAGO POLICEMAN AND HIS STATEMENT ABOUT THE LEGALITY OF HIS ARREST. ANOTHER ARTICLE IS ENTITLED "YIPPIE- BAGS YIPPIES CAN GET INTO IN YOUR HOMETOWN" THAT CONTAINS THE YIPPIE HEADQUARTERS NEW YORK CITY ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER. AN ARTICLE BY CYNRHIA EDELMAN IS ENTITLED "MOTHERS." THE ARTICLE IS ABOUT FRANK ZAPPA. THERE IS A FULL PAGE OF 12 CARTOONS BY "WALKER" THAT IS ENTITLED "HOW TO GET IN OUT OF THE DRAFT." THE CARTOONS ARE ACTUALLY AMUSING AND FUNNY. A LONG ARTICLE IS ENTITLED " A DAY AND A HALF IN THE LIFE OF SEED FREAKS AND YIPPIES VISIT CITY FATHERS." THE ARTICLE IS ABOUT THE YIPPIES ATTEMPT TO GET A PERMIT TO USE THE CITY PARKS TO ASSEMBLE DURING THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION. THE SIGNATURE LOOKS LIKE "VALERIE", PRESUMABLY VALERIE WALKER OF THE SEED STAFF. OF COURSE, THERE ARE THE USUAL ARTICLES ABOUT AVANT GARDE THEATRE IN CHICAGO, ROCK MUSIC AND CLUBS IN CHICAGO FEATURING PERFORMERS SUCH AS BOB DYLAN, THE BLUE CHEER, THE ELECTRIC THEATRE AND AN ARTICLE ABOUT THE CLUB "CHEETAH" ITS ATMOSPHERE AND PERFORMERS. PSYCHEDELIC ART IS PRESENT THROUGHOUT THE NEWSPAPER. THERE IS A LONG BOOK REVIEW OF "THE SECRET ORAL TEACHINGS IN TIBRTAN BUDDHIST SECTS." ANOTHER ARTICLE PLEADS FOR THE REMOVAL OF AN EXHIBIT AT THE MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY THAT FEATURES WEAPONS OF THE VIETNAM WAR INCLUDING A TANK, A HELICOPTER WITH ITS MACHINE GUNS AND GUNS LOADED WITH BEANS THAT CHILDREN CAN SHOOT AT VIATNAMESE TYPE TARGETS. THE SECTION ON ADVERTISEMENTS IS ALWAYS FASCINATING INCLUDING PLEAS OF PARENTS FOR THEIR CHILDREN TO COME HOME. THIS IS A CLASSIC VERSION OF THE COUNTERCULTURE UNDERGROUND NEWSPAPER WORLD OF THE HIPPES IN THE 1960'S AND THE YIPPIES PREPARATION FOR THEIR INVASION OF CHICAGO DURING THE 1968 DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION. Size: 11 1/4" x 15 3/8". Codice inventario libreria
