Yes, I'd be very thrilled.
It's very noticeable.

Tell me more about the program as it has been working.
I mean the educational espects.
I introduced Dr. Cooper, the Assistant Secretary of
HEW, to the people at the Ad Council, which is the group of
advertising agencies that were banded together and which gives
time on the air on a voluntary basis. They solicit from the
networks, and they give their time free, and you only pay for
the film and the place and the equipment and the photography.
They planned a big campaign, which just started about six months
ago. It's a time bomb on the chest of a man. Have you seen
any of those TV spots?
Well, did you think they were effective, I hope?
I do, and I think this is bound to make the general populace
aware of health problems.
