Page 34 has a 5 1/2 x 6 inch ad for "Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and the Beach Boys" (see image)

I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. Founded in 1955, the Voice began as a platform for the creative community of New York City.
