union logo. In addition, it has a "Printed by West Coast Lithograph
Co., SF" credit along the bottom right edge of the poster. It measures
approx. 14" x 20", and was printed on uncoated index paper stock, most
probably by mid-year, 1967.

poster save the paper stock. The paper used for the third printing was

20", and was most probably printed in late 1967 or 1968.
