Advocacy chain letter.  KKK against Drew Pearson.  "Have you ever had the urge to tell Drew Pearson 'to go to hell'"?  US, 1965.
Have you ever had the urge to tell Drew Pearson to 'go to hell'?
Let's do it!
This is a chain letter that involves no expense except a little time and a few postage stamps. Its only reward to you will be satisfaction of demonstrating that you are part of the united front against everything that Drew Pearson stands for.
First write to Drew Pearson and the Natchez Democrat or any other newspaper that carries his column. He'll understand a blunt 'go to hell' better than  a more dignified reprimand, but if you do not wish to use this expression you can use more dignified wording.
Sign your name and use your address.
Second, write to ten of your friends or acquaintances urging them each to do the same thing and write ten other people telling them to do the same thing and perpetuate the chain.
This may sound corny, and you man not like the idea of chain letters. But remember the NAACP, CORE, and COFO and other red groups are making fantastic gains with corny letters. Let's let him have it!
