The Campaign included radio programs, posters, leaflets, road signs and "reflectorized" jingle boards. These jingle board signs are pictured in the 10/17/1951 issue of "The Record" published by the Southwestern Union Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists. These signs are approximately 3 feet by 6.5 feet when displayed. Priced for the set of five.
