I recall a television commercial shown on WDCA (channel 20) in the early 1970's during the Captain 20 hours, with cartoons, Gilligan's Island, and Batman, etc. It went something like this: Hello. My name is Brian Hale. If you are a boy about my age, I invite you to join the Crime Stoppers Club. Our motto is to stop crime by not committing crime ourselves; hence the word 'Crime Stoppers'. Together we can build a great tomorrow. Write to PO BOX 9181, Washington, DC 20003.
