This edition of the newspaper places significant emphasis on the Crusade for Freedom, with the mainline headline stating that the Crusade for Freedom Opens Here; Funds Go To ‘Radio Free Europe’. The freedom bell, which is the symbol of the crusade for freedom is discussed in an article, along with a photograph of the bell itself. Further down on the first page, the Crusade Leaders are listed and discussed in great detail. The goal and purpose of the Crusade for Freedom is discussed in another interesting article, which first describes the construction of the organization before going on to state its goal of giving aid and asylum to exiled leaders from the prisoner countries of Eastern Europe, and to set up powerful new broadcasting facilities in West Germany. This newspaper also includes an article describing the campus drive, specifying its deadline and encouraging the student body to participate. Advertisements from local businesses have been distributed throughout the newspaper.
