On Feb. 3 the magazine filed a
oetition in bankruptcy to permit

than $1.8 million in debts.
The preceding week the maga-

rector, Warren Hinckle III, re-
signed because he had been unable
to raise money to get the maga-
zine out of debt. He said he would'
start a new radical magazine to
be called "Barricades" and that
most of the present Ramparts
staff would join him.
