A man with a gunny sack swung over his shoulder is dressed as a hillbilly with a wig and a fake beard. Next to him stands a man dressed as a preacher, and a woman holding two baby dolls. The three, as well as others, would perform specific vaudeville stunts as a means of raising money for the war effort. A sign in the background reads “Marryin Sam Specialties, Foonerals, Weddins, Christenins.”
