Family pet alive, back up to her normal 8 pounds, Buffy spend a great deal of time curled up in a blanket-filled basket near the heat stove in the home of Ken and Mary Whites. Life couldn’t be better for a 9-year-old dog. But two weeks ago, life for Buffy, starving and near death, couldn’t have been worse. The dog looked like a fur-covered skeleton when she was discovered in the crawl space beneath the family home where she had been trapped for a month without food and water. The ordeal began on August evening when Buffy disappeared while the Whites entertained relatives at their Westridge home. Probably chasing a gopher, the dog apparently ran under the front-yard deck and found a loose board that hold the dryer vent in place. “Her purpose in life is to chase things,” said Mary. “For about a week before she disappeared, Buffy was just crazy about going under the deck.” Buffy apparently crawled behind the board, fell into the 5-foot crawl space and was unable to climb back out. “I thought somebody had grabbed her, because she has never run away before,” said Mary. The Whites searched several neighborhoods. They ran newspaper and radio advertisements for two weeks. But the dog was nowhere to be found. Mary even opened the trap door to the seldom-seen crawl space on a hunch. “I turned on the light and called for her, but there was no answer,” she recalled. The Whites eventually put her dish and toys away, giving her up for lost. A month later when the dryer began overheating, Ken went down in the crawl space to investigate. Buffy crawled out from among two or three small nests she had made from insulation.“ Poor Kenny, he couldn’t believe it,” Mary recalled. “I started screaming when I saw her.” Shock turned to happiness because they had finally found their dog.

The Crusade workers also released big rubber balloons, each carrying 500 messages about the Crusade for Freedom, at the same time. President G. D. Humphrey of the University of Wyoming, who is state chairman for the crusade, said that both types of balloons have been used to send messages of hope to the hopeless people behind the Iron Curtain.
