Item Description: New York, 1945. 21 issues of the tabloid format newspaper, Vol. 5 no. 32 and vol. 6 nos. 13-20, 22-24, 31-33, 35-37, 40-42, together with numbers 68 and 72 of the Bowery News, a sort of digest of material reprinted from the Hobo Press. Paper is toned, spines are neatly separated along the fold on some issues; should be handled delicately. The May 17, 1937 issue of Time Magazine included an article about the publication and its fight to let street people sell it on street corners in New York, which began: "To the vast surprise of a Manhattan police court last week, a mussy little prisoner informed the judge that the issue at stake in his case was not whether he had been caught peddling in Times Square without a license, but whether or not the U. S. people were to enjoy the rights and privileges of a free press? The journal which was thus defended is like no other paper on earth. It is a peach and saffron tabloid full of hand-me-down line drawings and photographs of celebrated sundowners, sentimental verse, advertisements of rabbits' feet and "surprise novelties." personalities and good advice. It is distributed in Manhattan by its editors, elsewhere by itinerants at 5? a copy- 10? "if we can get it"? Next to the editors of the New Yorker, publisher and staff of the Hobo News are probably the most picturesque group of journalists in the US. Editorial offices-and living quarters for some contributors-are in a cluttered cellar on Manhattan's noisy 17th street. Here Publisher Mulkern is surrounded by an editorial board which includes "Crown Prince Bozo," Dean O'Brien and Otis O. ("The Boomer Poet") Rodgers. Press, linotype and paper, bought on credit by the Roaming Dreamer in 1935, are paid for out of profits on the installment plan.". Bookseller Inventory # 203579
