According to a spring sur- vey by Lethbridge Ministerial most churches rejected a city-wide crusade. evangelist Mr. Winter called a meeting himself during a Key 73 visit in September and reported interest in a crusade was then expressed by a cross-section of 40 clergy and laymen. According to Mr. the larger crusade fas arisen from interest and concern by both clergy and laymen in the area.
