Description

A political cartoon depicts Senate Majority Leader Scott W. Lucas sweating over John L. Lewis, American organized labor leader and United Mine Workers of America president (1920-1960), dumping a cat out of the "Period of Inaction" bag into the "Senate Labor Stew Pot." As Lucas and Lewis work frantically to get something done, President Harry S. Truman continues to wait patiently.
