An earlier edition was published under the same title as below by Contact
Books, North Hollywood, Calif., 1969. Farber wrote the title essay for the
_Los Angeles Free Press_ where it was first published in the 3 March 1967
issue. Unfortunately, this issue does not appear in the Bell & Howell
Underground Press Collection microfilm edition. It was, however, reprinted
in a volume that is in many libraries: Jerry Hopkins (ed.), _The Hippie
Papers: Notes From the Underground Press_ (New York: Signet Books, 1968),
pp. 160-168. Also, Farber claimed that by 1969 his essay had been reprinted
approximately 500 times in various places & formats.
