What Is That Topless Lady Doing With The Sunday New York Times?

We stumbled upon this page from an article in the January 1972 issue of Playboy. The article is called
“What To Do With The Sunday New York Times” and the text in the lower right hand corner reads:

ecology freaks, take note: all the news that’s fit to print is fit to use!

The Sunday Times is under attack. Recyclists find it lamentably heavy – in the preslang meaning of that word – and some have gone so far as to suggest that it be offered for sale in sections, so that the buyer can carry home, and toss into the Monday-morning trash, only the news he finds fit to read. The Times feels this notion is economically naive. What to do? Playboy and illustrator James Higa pondered this problem and hit upon a literally constructive solution. Higa went quickly to work. You can see the newsworthy results of his efforts by turning the page.

Anyone have any idea what Playboy did with the NY Times on the following pages? Let us know, or better yet – SEND PICTURES!!!
