(Original Caption) 1950- Doris Day, nationally famous Warner Brothers motion picture, & favorite recording radio star, selected by the Veterans of Foreign wars as their 1950 Buddy Poppy Girl, is a uniquely appropriate choice for the annual national sale of Buddy Poppies, made by disabled ex-service men, to raise funds for rehabilitation and welfare work. Her outstanding success despite a crippling accident in her 'teens, is a strikig example of courage to "carry on". Miss Day was a member of the Bob Hope entertainment troupe which visited military installations and hospitals throughout the country.
