  • Description

    Students from the University of Rhodesia held their annual rag parade in Salisbury over the weekend (April 8) to raise funds for national charities.

    In the parade, which wound through the main streets of Salisbury, were numerous floats reflecting various aspects of Rhodesian life, marching students in rag costumes, and a number of bands. Rag parades on behalf of charities are a traditional part of university life in Britain and North America.

    SYNOPSIS: Last Saturday in Salisbury...and the weather was just right for the rag parade -- an annual event staged by students from the University of Rhodesia and aimed at raising funds to assist national charities.

    Floats of various shapes and sizes were constructed for the occasion, many of them reflecting different aspects of life in Rhodesia.

    Behind the holiday-like atmosphere was the more serious task of raising funds to help the needy. Students, armed with collection boxes, invited the public to contribute whatever they could afford.

    The rag parade's organisers hope each year that their determination and energy will be matched by the public's generosity.
