Gretchen Hutzel is seated on the floor. Ann Arbor High school students have set a quota of 3,500 records and contributions are being received daily and added to the pile which is already 25 ft.high. The phonograph disks will be melted down for the making of new records. About 500 old records are needed to make 48 new ones which the men in uniform are eagerly awaiting.
