EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST1 SCHEDULE tl IGLO f HOl IutSfUy WTAD Quiaoj 930 WSUL U City J810I Report on Your Truth Dollars Y VISIT with you on this oc casion will be in the nature of a report to the multiplied thou sands of people in Iowa Illinois and the Middle West generally who have contributed their truth dollars to Crusade for Freedom for the support of Radio Free Europe These gifts have been made on a strictly voluntary basis There has been no pressure No body has been looking over the shoulder of the donor and say HALL ing out loud or even whispering I think you ought lo give such and such an 11 has been and it will go on being a matter for the individual to decide And that strikes me as being added reason why those who con tribute out of honest conviction and a full heart should welcome a report on what is being done with those truth dollars I speak as one who has been privileged to sit in on and watch the dayto day operations of Radio Free Europe at its two

surprise lo me close as I have been lo the program for the past year or so In Europe alone there arc in excess of employes The nerve center is in English Gardens a section of Munich where persons fit into Ihe total picture Under a policy adopted some eight years ago when Radio Free Europe came into being at the suggestion of Dwight D Eisen hower then head of our NATO defenses the microphones on the sending end of news commen taries and entertainment have been manned by escapees from the Communist tyranny THAT RULE still prevails Its effective to have a Pole a Czech or a Hungarian in a climate of freedom talking to his former neighbors still living under Com munist tyranny Considering the dimensions of the screening prob lem there are 31 nationalities in all its liltto short of a
