only since 1967 has it come under purview of the
Saturday Evening Club which publishes it
monthly except July and September. One year
subscriptions (ten issues) cost $6.00 and all correspondence
threatening letters, federal grants, etc.) should be
sent to The Alternative, P.O. Box 877, 102 West
Sixth Street, Bloomington, Indiana, 47401, Continental
Microfilm editions of The Alternative are available
from Xerox University Microfilms, 300

Published remarkably without regard to race,
color, creed, or (most redundantly of all) national
origin-and yes, sex, even sex.
