The reception committee
This cartoon decries the ant-American reception by French radicals of American Legion members on a tour of France. Four bearded men in vests (one labeled "French Radicals," the second "Hatred of America," the third "French Debt Cancellationist," and the fourth is unmarked) hammer anti-American sign into a map of France: "Stay Away," "You Are Not Wanted," "Keep Off the Grass," "Down With America," and "Keep Off." In the background a man in a coat and hat labeled "American Legion" stands in front of a row boat marked "To Paris." The man says, "They gave me such a royal welcome in 1917, I thought they'd be glad to see me again."
