HELIX Vol. 4 No. 5, August 29, 1968 – ANOTHER MIX

The cover for this issue uses a photograph of Betty Nelson’s pets – I think – at her “strawberry farm” outside of Sultan, where the first Sky River Rock Festival and Lighter Than Air Fair was held on Labor Day weekend, this year 1968.  Whoever laid out the cover continued this tabloid’s tradition of being wrong about the proper volume and issue numbers for the Helix then to hit the streets – and it was on the streets were circulation occurred.  There were never very many outlets – just a handful of brave merchants.  It was the vendors who kept the paper going – the vendors and record ads and the staff’s collective acceptance of poverty.  It was hardly worrisome – with a little help from one’s friends.  Again, Bill White and I gab about another issue and Ron Edge puts it and the colorful Helix Logo together,  Thanks to us all.

B.White and P. Dorpat
