Audio clip: Wanda Applegath

Wanda Applegath, who was in college in Illinois during World War II, talks about different ways you could support the war:

Wanda Applegath: Now war bonds were a big thing. And also, not everybody could buy a war bond. The smallest bond was $25, I think. I really think so.

Twenty-five cents and you had a book to paste them in.
