Mrs. Ernest Leary
Tells Members About
Radio Free Europe
The Women’s Auxiliary of St. Paul’s
met in the Parish House Thursday
night. All committee chairmen made
good ■ reports and Mrs. L. A Patter
son, chairman of the annual bazaar,
to be held November 17, made a final
appeal for donations.
The speaker for the meeting was
Mrs. Ernest W. Leary, whose subject
was “Radio Free Europe.” Mrs.
Leary has returned frojn a tour of
European countries, including West
Germany, where she visited in the
home of her niece, whose husband is
the director of Radio Free Europe.
Mrs. Leary stressed that Radio I ’•►e
Europe was not to be confused .with
the Voice of America. It differs in
that it is supported by private sub
scription from the American people
and is their answer to the Kremlin’s
despotic rule. Its purpose is to pierce
the Iron Curtain with messages of
moral and practical value, thus tak
ing the fight to the enemy’s camp.
The offices of Radio Free Europe
are largely located in Munich, where
a campaign of psychological warfare
is conducted against the communist
regimes in six areas, Czechslovakia,
Poland, Rumania, Hungary, Bulgaria
and Albania. Short wave and medium
wave transmitters broadcast 430 hours
a week to the six target countries.
The programs are varied, suitable to
all classes. News, she says, is a prec
ious commodity in the captive coun
tries and is ‘ broadcast around the
clock. Mrs. Leary said the primary
purpose of these programs to the cap
tive peoples is to sustain their hope
of gaining their national freedom and
individual liberties and to encourage
the eventual restoration of these free
dom-loving peoples to the free world.
It was felt that Radio Free Europe
could deliver its message most effec
tively. and at the same time promote
American ideas and an understanding
of America and the interests of the
American people if it spoke with the
• voice and authority of exiles from be
hind the Iron Curtain. Therefore, Ra
dio Free Europe developed a network
of six stations where exiles from the
captive countries speak to their own
peoples in their own idiom.
That the plan has been a success is
evident from letters to Radio Free
Europe from listeners behind the Iron
Curtain and from broadcasts from the
