Legendary issue in the history of the underground press, published by a break-away group of collaborators of the Berkeley Barb opposing the general editor Scheer who was running the journal for his personal gain rather than for the original principles. It featured as its logo an adapted version of the Barbs Don Quixotte with Scheer spurring his horse forward with a spear in the buttock, dollar bills trailing off the galloping editor (Cf James Lews, Protest and Survive). The group of journalists in fact founded with this issue what became the Berkeley Tribe.
