The Janet A. Ginsburg Chicago Tribune Collection

In this Carey Orr political cartoon the Calvin Coolidge administration is shown as a barber trimming Uncle Sam's hair. As the barber is preparing to pick up the scissors, Uncle Sam is directing him to take a big cut out of high sure-taxes and trim a little off of taxes on low incomes.
