The Janet A. Ginsburg Chicago Tribune Collection

A bad sign

In this cartoon by Carey Orr a boy, "careless investor," standing next to a bag, "American millions being invested European bonds," drops a coin into the coin slot, "drop loans here," of a machine, "Europe." The machine is "out of order--failure to pay debts to U.S.A.," but the boy still waits for something to come from the machine, "promise of high interest rates."
