A. Rate earned is determined by the number of insertions or different advertisements regardless of size placed in any one or more issues within the contract period.  Each page of a spread will be counted as one insertion toward earning a frequency time rate.  One-fourth page is minimum rate holder to earn contract rate for larger units.
