Top edge has the text: "Stop the Circus" in red. Below is a drawing of seven blue human skeletons holding large rifles with small triangular flags tied to the bayonets, they are wearing helmets and sashes that have pendants that have the text: "US". The seven Skeletons are standing in a row. In front of the skeletons on the right side of the poster a red and salmon colored elephant is standing with its two front feet on a globe. The bottom edge has the text: "San Diego '72". San Diego had originally been selected to host the 1972 Republican National Convention, but a scandal involving International Telephone and Telegraph forced moving it to Miami, Florida only three months before the event. Both conservative forces and the radiical opposition were prepared for a showdown in San Diego that never happened. [LMC]
