A Beat Fourth of July

June 26, 1960, Comics

June 26, 1960: For the Fourth of July, the Beats of Venice plan to protest an ordinance against being on the beach between midnight and 6 a.m. by spending the night on the beach. Except there is no such city ordinance, police say. The beats also plan a Gilbert and Sullivan production, one-act plays by Tennessee Williams and other “hip writers,” poetry readings and an art auction.

RE the Beatniks. Escape from reality. What a grand idea. You folks may remember what the poet from Fresno said about one of his characters, "oh, he knew what reality was, he was just looking for something better." Cool, man, cool. Ya dig?
