'Get the Lead Out' Campaign Nets
1300 Pencils for Students in East
More than 1,300 pencils have
been collected so far in the Uni
versity's campaign to send pencils
to students in India and Pakistan.
The "get the lead out" campaign
started last week at the suggestion
of Norman Cousins, editor of the
Saturday Review, who told stu
dents at last Tuesday's journalism
banquet that there was an imme
diate need for a goodwill gesture
on the part of American citizens.
He explained that unless the peo
ple of the Far East realize that
the United States wants their
friendship, there is danger that
»they will all turn to communism.
At his suggestion, members of
Sigma Delta Chi, men's profes
sional journalism fraternity, start
ed the University’s campaign to
collect pencils the following day.
"Pencils are badly needed by stu
dents in India and Pakistan,"
Ward Lindbeck, co-chairman of
the drive, said Monday. "Enough
goodwill gestures of this type
might mean the difference between
war and peace with these coun
Aim of the campaign is to get
at least.one pencil for every stu
dent at the University.
"So far,” Lindbeck said, "we
have averaged at least two pencils
for every student we've contacted."
