Clintons salute Ad Council ads

Published on .

President Clinton and first lady Hillary Clinton, at a White House event for the Coalition for America's Children public service ad campaign, screened an Advertising Council commercial by Y&R Advertising, New York, that features the Clintons saying the toughest job in the world isn't the presidency, but raising children and urging people to volunteer to help. Mrs. Clinton saluted the ad industry "and the crucial role they play," while the president said The New York Times, Newsweek and large TV companies have agreed to air the spot. Ad Council Chairman Alex Kroll said the spot attempts to overcome the "mean prejudice" that makes people unwilling to help others' children.
