Dave Marsh, Creem, March 1971

ALGIERS, Algeria (UPS) — Timothy Leary has once again spent some time in jail — and this time his jailer was none less than Eldridge Cleaver, himself. Timothy and his wife, Rosemary were removed from their apartment and placed under house arrest in another section of Algiers on January 9th, by order of Black Panther Minister of Information Eldridge Cleaver; the order was carried out by Field Marchal D.C., who with Cleaver heads the BPP Intercommunal Section in Algeria.
