Morris S. "Buzz" Arnold first got involved with the hippie community in Fayetteville, Washington County, Arkansas because of his involvement with the free speech movement. Arnold's connection to the hippie community was strengthened because he was a guitarist in a rock and roll band. The name of the band was McGuffey's Electric Reader, which was invented the Walter "Bucky" Sanders of Alpina, Boone County, Arkansas who was a law student and played piano in the band and Bob Kerspel of North Little Rock, Pulaski County, Arkansas who was the drummer.
In the summer of 1967, Arnold, Sanders,and Kerspel collaborated with Alan Campbell of Fayetteville and Candy Samudra Campbell of Little Rock to create a newspaper - McGuffey's Electric Reader Newspaper.
The newspaper was never printed because when Arnold took the mock-up to printer in Springdale, Washington County, Arkansas the printer refused to print it claiming that he considered the artwork to be "obscene."
