Vol.3 No.48 Dec.17, 1969 Grace Potts, Editor
The feeling of Christmas is in the air and the offices look it, too, ever

swing of things also by tramping thru acres of trees last Sunday, picking
out THE ONE, and then cutting it down.
Our lobby is loaded with Christmas presents brought in by listeners to our
FM. Russ Gibb recently made an appeal for new or used toys and clothing that
were no lor!er wanted by their owners. The excellent response will make it

poetry, prose and production numbers, Jerry Goodwin reading "Barrington's
