Teacher with child in the Labor Day Parade, New York City

This member of the United Federation of Teachers is bearing his son on his shoulders while carrying the sarcastic sign, "Lose One for the Gipper," a reference to one of Reagan's movie roles as Notre Dame football coach Knute Rockne, whose team slogan was "Win One for the Gipper."
