The last 1/3 of the story is an illustrated promotional ad for the Green Lama Club. The first page of this story begins on the inside front cover in B/W followed by a page which partially reprints an illustrated patriotic appeal made in previous issues along with a letter and note from publisher Ken Crossen stating all Americans need to know that some enemies of freedom are found right here at home.
