problem in restoring stdout to default

In my shell script i gave the following command to redirect the standard output to a logfile

exec >logfile

This script also calls another shell script later.

My question is

how do I restore the standard output to default from the called script?

I know this is covered in the REDIRECTION section of the "bash" manpage. Just type "man bash" to bring that up, it should help.

For the lazy answer, try this:
"exec >&1"
