An Anti-Communist Christmas

Beginning in the early 1960s, Christian Anti-Communism Crusade founder Fred C. Schwarz (1913-2009) was so obsessed with defeating the Reds that he was not above exploiting Christmas for donations. CONELRAD obtained one of his appeals and, in the spirit of the holidays, presents it below.
