Description: A huge crowd of students rally on the UC Berkeley campus against World War II. There are two anti-war signs reading "Cannon fodder protest" and "V for Vacation." There are many, many more men than women in the crowd. The crowd seems to be posing for the photo as many have their mouths open and are pointing to the sign and gesturing. They stand in front of the president's house. It's nighttime. Photo caption reads: "Angered over the cancellation of a three-day vacation, these University of California students burst in on a faculty lecture last night and then marched to the president's house where they chanted, 'We want a holiday.' They are shown as they gather on the steps of the president's house to give protest."
