Poster is printed on pink colored paper with dark purple text and image. On the right is a drawing of a hookah that has "yippie!" in the water area at the bottom. The hookah's smoke has "Pre-Erection Day Party Nov. 1 8 P.M." printed in it with a gun shooting. A small cloud of smoke on the right has "50 cents" printed in it. The left side reads, "Phil Ochs/ Eldridge Cleaver/ Jerry Rubin & Others/ Floating Lotus/ Magic Opera Company/ Rock-Soul Music/ Berkeley Community Theater/ Allston and Milvia." Verso has purple printing for "Opening Salvos from a Black-White Gun." On either side are two letters from Panther, and Yippie!. The "erection day" is a satirical slam on the presidential elections, featuring Richard Nixon, Hubert Humprey, and George Wallace. [LMC]
