Rasing Money for "Football Films for IU Boys"

image number:

P0038190

description:

The students of IU staged a campus wide drive to raise money so that they could send film of IU football games to students who were off fighting in the war.

The girls here are tagging a student as part of "Tag Day," which was devised by a student committee led by Jean Ragon and Inge Pelikan to raise double the money so that film of more games could be sent out.
