The Fugitive Generation (xix)

INT. STUDENT GOVERNMENT OFFICE--DAY

Marlene and Jim are sitting behind desk where leaflets are piled. Rachel enters office.

RACHEL: I see the leaflets are ready. I'll pass some out on the Diag, in front of the library.

Marlene hands her some leaflets.

MARLENE: Did you finish that paper?

RACHEL: I stayed up till three in the morning. But I finally finished it.

Rachel turns around and starts walking out the office.

RACHEL (CONT'D): See you at the meeting tonight.

Some students from previous night's meeting enter office. Marlene hands them each leaflets.

EXT. STUDENT UNION BUILDING--DAY

Marlene and Jim are handing out leaflets to students walking in and out of building. Most students eagerly take a leaflet.

JIM (loudly): People Against the Air War meeting tonight at 7:30! The war is still going on! Come to an anti-war meeting tonight!

Marlene runs out of leaflets and walks over to Jim, who soon finished handing out his remaining leaflets.

MARLENE: That's all the leaflets we have.

JIM: They went fast. People here seem more interested than they are back East in taking leaflets.

Marlene looks at her watch.

MARLENE: I should try to make my history class now. See you at the meeting tonight, Jim.

Jim smiles.

JIM: Let's hope people show up.

Marlene walks across street to academic building. Jim gazes at her from behind until she enters the building.
