lighted 52 University students cars
Friday in the campus campaign.
"We were very pleased with the
University response," Roger I.
Larson, assistant managing direc

turnout was excellent."
Car bumpers were washed,
dried, and given a 5 to 6 foot
strip of the tape for a fee of $1.
The reflective tape reduces
night-time accident rates and
draws attention to parked cars.
The tape is produced by the same
