I recently found this interesting article “The University and the War Call”, by Robert W. Jones, Dept. of Journalism, USD Bulletin Series XVIII, No. 3, April 1918 in a collection called USD Publications.
The article tells us that hanging in the chapel was a flag with 200 stars, one for “every man now in khaki was formerly connected with the University of South Dakota, either as student or teacher”.
Headings in the article are:
Service flag has 200 stars
Coyote athletes at the front
University girls show spirit
Enrollment shows little decrease
War caused change in rules
Faculty helps in war work
April 2017 will be the 100th anniversary of the United States entering World War I.
