International Times Magazine was an underground magazine that ran during the late 60s through into the 70s. In 1969, they gave the skinheads their own page which they named Yell. This proved to be an uneasy alliance and only lasted about 6 issues until it was edged out of the magazine. Here are the contents of the pages as both text and in a combined PDF.

Issue 73 International Times
NOT very much has been going on since last issue. We have had more news from Manchester about the school versus Twisted Wheel Club.
Apparently someone got the news wrong, and thought we were trying to claim a YELL reporter was expelled from school. This was not so.
