"Dennis the Menace visits the United Nations" and "Career Girl" finds both a job and love at the UN

In a 1979 comic book, Dennis the Menace visits the United Nations to promote the International Year of the Child.  And when he returns home, he and his friend Margaret go over the Rights of the Child from the 1959 Declaration.  In a 1968 "Career Girl" comic book, a young woman from the American Midwest finds both a job and love at the UN. 

Both comic book stories were responses to an appeal from the UNA-Los Angeles chapter for US comic books, mostly based in southern California at that time, to promote more interest in the UN among young Americans.
