Poppies Are Also Flowers

"Here is Ginger Rogers, as the 1935 Buddy Poppy Girl, with some of more than 60,000 Buddy Poppies which will be in the readiness for the annual sale of the Veterans of Foreign Wars to raise funds for welfare and relief work. Ginger is an ardent booster of the Buddy Poppy Plan. All Buddy Poppies in the National Sale, which is conducted during the week of Memorial Day, are made by disabled and needy ex-service men, the majority patients in government hospitals."
