Photograph article dated November 21, 1958 partially reads, "Atheistic Communists scoff at the Bible as folklore and laugh at religion but rural Russia stands as a source of hope in a counter-attack against false ideas. 'Men on the Russian farms are men of opposition. There is a spark of individualism,' said Austin Conover, Citizen News columnist, who spoke yesterday at a noon luncheon of the North Hollywood Rotary Club. Conover went on a six-week, fact finding tour of Russia last summer." Austin Conover, Hollywood Citizen-News columnist wrote a series of stories on his travel experiences, which were carried in the Valley Times as well as the Hollywood Citizen-News.
