    A different version Kent State shooting button.
    This one "KENT 25" is fresh from Kent Ohio. The curl reads:
    1970 Horn Co. for the "Kent Legal Defence Fund, PO Box 116, Kent O. 44240" (Defence spelled with a c) 1 2/4 diameter

    The Kent State 25 were the 25 charged with rioting among other charges.
    The student body president and an associate professor at Kent State University were among the first 25 persons booked following a special grand jury probe of the Kent State riot.
    Craig Morgan, 20, student body president, was arrested in student government offices on the campus. He was charged with second-degree rioting during the disturbances of May 1 to 4. Thomas S. Lough, 42, an associate professor of sociology and anthropology, surrendered on a count of inciting to riot May 4, the day four Kent students were killed in a clash with National Guardsmen.
    (Above is from The Harvard Crimson)
    More of the Kent State story is told on my YIPPIE BOOGIE Kent State post about two weeks ago.

    Mr. Hunter has posted his cover story "PUSHING BUTTONS" about my buttons I will add a link in the comments or click the big CW on the upper left to read, Hope you enjoy it.

      Right Thomas OHIO was written for Kent State and Buffalo Springfield's "For what it's worth" fits perfect but was written 3 years before in 67 still the words seem too right on for Kent or the 68 DNC "What a field day for the heat... There's a man with a gun over there tellin me I got to beware"
      Thanks for the love and comment Always welcomed
