The danger of too much economy
Political cartoon by Carey Orr entitled "The Danger of Too Much Economy" depicts two frowning soldiers, "adequate defense," standing amidst several barrels of money and a bag labeled "happiness." A mound of money, "prosperity" represents "America's wealth." A Congressman holding an "economy program" and pacifist stand in the background. One whispers, "They're an awful expense! Why not discharge them?"
