I met Joubert here the day before yesterday: very likable.
The perspective of presenting to the U.N.E.F. Congress a motion for general dissolution is grandiose. Jourbert believes that the F.G.E.L. might support this (but, without doubt, it would be, like the A.F.G.E.S. in an irregular financial situation). If this motion is only presented seriously, and supported by three or four A.G., all of the scandal will start up again, extraordinarily; and would definitively exceed the local level.
Bravo for Planete!
You have handled Todd exquisitely: the cretin wanted to show you that he was capable of approving you! As for the content [of his article], it is much further from comprehension than P. de Nussac. But Todd presented a loyal recitation ([the attack on] Moles); and, at the level of comprehension of a vulgar student, he worked to render your position prestigious, the Observateur and Le Monde being exactly the Bible[s] of the "student." According to Joubert, the director of the U.N.E.F. was livid the day before yesterday and didn't hide his spite: "Not only did they devote three pages to you, but they supported you!"
If you must show off at the U.N.E.F. Congress on 9 January , it would be good to reserve the official closing of the B for around 15 January (as a new explosion on a terrain that they will begin to believe is clear of mines).
It seems that a reprinting of the pamphlet must be made. If there is offset reproduction available, it is necessary to add: "Second edition. 30 thousand copies" (or 20 thousand, if the reprinting consists of only ten thousand copies). This in itself is a troubling "political" argument in favor of the pamphlet.
Can you send us -- or have someone bring us -- several hundred copies of the "blue" edition? Lacking any of those, the green?
When will your tract come out?
We have finally begun to hold our meetings here. They are set for every Tuesday at 3 pm, and (provisionally) at Donald [Nicholson-Smith]'s place. We will warn you of any changes. We thus hope that you can make some voyages that coincide with a direct arrival at the "Council."Cordially,

 The journalist Oliver Todd published an article in the 21 December  issue of Le Nouvel Observateur: "Strasbourg in a Situation."
 In the Paris-Presse for 15 December 1966, Philippe de Nussac summarizes it thus: "Art: dead; the university: a factory; Sartre: unintelligent; peace in Vietnam: pontifical marching order."

 An Notice in the form of a poster announced that the closing would take place 12 January 1967.

 The second edition, ten thousand copies, appeared in March 1967 with the mention of 20 thousand [total copies].
 Since the cartoon of green covers had been exhausted, the end of the first edition had to be published with blue covers.
 And that's only the beginning appeared in January 1967.
