In this political cartoon by Carey Orr, an elephant ("G.O.P.") leaps down the steps ("political school") leading from a door ("convention examinations") with the "G.O.P. Report Card" (Calvin Coolidge for President with an E, Charles Dawes for Vice President with an E, the Party Platform with a G, and the Convention Deportment with an E). Through the window of the building, a donkey (the Democratic party) stares worriedly at a blank slate containing the words "Dem. Slate."
