The Janet A. Ginsburg Chicago Tribune Collection

"O, boy! take the gentleman's luggage!"

In this cartoon by Carey Orr, a hotel clerk, "ashamed American," calls to a bellhop, "U.S. taxpayer," who is holding a number of suitcases, "U.S. war debts." The clerk tells the bellhop to also take the luggage, "unpaid debts," of another man, "Europe."
