    This document is a subscription list used to raise funds for the Soldiers' & Sailors' Council of Tacoma's Defense Fund. It records the discrimination they have faced in the Tacoma City Council, which refused to extend permission for a tag day, and the difficulties they faced when they held the tag day in violation of the city council's order, which resulted in the arrest of "fifty members of the organization, many of them overseas veterans with wounds still unhealed". They seek support from the "generous and fair-minded citizens of Pierce County" in order to "take our cases to court and obtain a square deal". less
