What's in a rumor?
The Daily Nebraska printed a
story wmcn appeared in the Oct
5, 1951, issue describing the efforts
of Lois Jean Olson to collect rib
bons from cigarettes packages to
help bund youngsters.
Miss Olson had heard that the
youngster wouia receive a seeing
eye dog from a cigarette company
for a certain number of ribbons.
Miss Olson was energetically try
ing to do her part for a good
The feature editor received
a letter from E. E, Dunning, Jr
sales manager of the American
Tobacco company. Dunning had
been notified about the article
and wrote to Inform the editor I
that similar instances occasion- i
ally spring up throughout the '
United States and the situations
are false. " . "
"We do not know how such
rumors originate," he writes, "but
we have diligently sought to scotch
they have arisen."
Dunning continued, "We have
cooperated closely with the seeing
eye organization to prevent the
spread of such rumors, and some
time ego, at our expense, Seeing
Eye, Incorporated, addressed a
letter to every daily newspaper in
the United States, advising the
editor and his staff that should
any such rumor spring up in his
community, it is untrue and
should be denied."
A copy of the letter from
Henry Colgate, president of The
Seeing Eye, Incorporated, to the
newspapers was enclosed with
"There is absolutely no truth
to any of these rumors," says
"From time to time during the
last several years a rumor has
arisen in various parts of the
country to the general effect that
a blind person might obtain a see
ing eye dog by collecting a speci-
them wherever and whenever tied number of empty cigarette
packages, or cartons, empty
match folders, a certain quantity
of tin foil or other similar objects,"
The Seeing Eye, Incorporated,
and the cigarette companies have
successfully dispelled such rumors
in various communities when they
have been notified of the rumors.
Colgate, "every once in a while
the tabacco manufacturers and

pathetic appeal from a blind
person asking that a dog be sent
to him in return for a collection
of wrappers, match covers or
tin foil, the quantities varying
from 5,000 to as high as 150,
000. It is really heartbreaking
to have to tell these unfortunate
persons that all their work in
collecting these objects has been
Thus, small talk may develop
into rumors which may result in
