day for the 300 North lowans in Chicago on the KGLO North Iowa Fair Special and it was a good thing It gave the 4H youths and their leaders particularly the chance to catch their breath after two days of sight seeing shopping movie going One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE KGLO 1300 pm WOI Ames 610 pm Tuesday WTAD Qutocy 930 pm Thurs TPSTJI City 810 Sat Its a voice of hope for 80 million A GROUP OF AMERICAN business and professional men and women recently took a look at the Radio Free Europe operations in Europe and came back home with two overriding conclusions 1 RFEs truth story IS get ting through to the 80 million people held slsves in the satellite countries Poland Czechoslovakia Romania Bulgaria and Hungary 2 There will be a need for continuing the RFE programs until that happy day whejvthe cold war is resolved in favor of freedom and human dig nity in our world The mission participated in by a half dozen persons from Iowa Minnesota and Illinois quite largely at their own ex pense led to Munich the European nerve center of RFE to the Czecho slovakian border and its literal iron curtain to Berlin East as well as West and to Lisbon Portugal site of RFEs most powerful transmitting facilities THESE AMERICANS as I did on a like mission two years ago the ugly face of Communism They saw it at the barrier between Czechoslovakia and Bavaria where electrified barbed wire fences huge con crete antitank dragons teeth heavily manned guard towers and giant spotlights keep that little enslaved nations people from crossing over into free dom They saw it in East Berlin where 15 years after the end of World War I rubble and bombed out buildings are still to be seen on all hands Re crossing the arbitrarily drawn line they found a bustling thriv ing happy city in West Berlin Shops are packed with merchan dise streets are jammed with people and automobiles Could there be a more re vealing peephole as between the Communist way and the free en terprise way of doing business No wonder the Kremlin is so very anxious to take over West Berlin The shoddy character of the Communist bill of goods is out in the open for all to see not just the Germans but the people of the whole world ONCE RADIO FREE EU rope operated with makeshift equipment wholly inadequate for getting through the Kremlins vast jamming operations But not so today The truth IS get ting through to the satellite people Today RFE is a network of five radio stations broadcasting with an aggregate power of more than a million watts There are 28 transmitters in West Ger many around Munich in Ba varia and in Portugal at a site called Gloria 50 miles north east of Lisbon Whereas the sending stations in West Germany right under Continued en Pagt 2 j and a multitude of other activ ities Actually the day wasnt one of complete rest After attend ing morning church services many of the North lowans head ed south on Lake Shore Drive to the fascinating1 Hall of Science and Industry There they spent most of the afternoon viewing the thousands of exhibits Many of the lowans considered the tour of the Hall the highlight of the fourday trip thus far THERE IS something of inter est for nearly everyone at the Hall For the boys there was the exhibit of antique airplanes hanging from the ceiling or any one of a hundred other projects proclaiming the technical ad vancement of this country For the girls there was the exhibit of household devices showing their progress through the years Many of the youths went into the coal mine which has been a favorite exhibit at the Hall for many years Others spent liter ally hours in front ofa color TV camera with a set next to it which enabled them to see how they looked on the evil eye There were however the less hardy members of the group who passed up the tour for an afternoon of lounging around the aotel lobby or just relaxing in their rooms FOR THE lobby loungers the favorite topic of conversation was what they did Saturday night Most of thgyoungsters took in movies The favorite seemed to have been North to Alaska starring John Wayne Others however took in the Ice Review at the Conrad Hilton Hotel while still others attended such stage shows as Flower Drum Song and A Majority of One starring Sir C e d r i c Hardwicke and Gertrude Berg Another conversation topic was the price of food at Chicago restaurants One leader admit ted he ordered a hamburger not because he was particularly lungry but because he wanted o be able to tell the folks back lome that he had paid a dollar or it BUT MONDAY morning it was back on the sight seeing rail for the North lowans The women leaders andgirls toured he Cracker Jack company plant while the men and boys xaveled to the Republic Steel Corporation plant in South Chi cago By the time the group re urned to the hotel it was time o start the tedious job of re packing Many of the lowans also found time to get in some ast minute shopping Several of the men went out to the In ernational Amphitheater to view the judging of the grand champion steer On the inside Editorials Page 4 Society News 8910 Sports 1314 News Quit 15
