Description Information
   Poster, 620:475 mm., light age staining, creased on folds, blue paper.
Paragraph 1    A polemic against the manner in which the schools were run. The title translates as " the absurd has reached the apex" meaning that the situation has reached the height of absurdity.
   The poster states that the educational system has been turned into a party system in which the innocent children are indoctrinated with the party ideals to create future voters. It continues to state that "this is making us a laughing stock in the whole world".

The poster concludes with the question--how long should we suffer the rule of the absurd in [our] state?
