Hold Your Sword, Sir Harry-He's Only a Pet Dragon!
Lucas, Scott Wike, 1892-1968
United States. Congress. Senate
Byrd, Harry F. (Harry Flood), 1887-1966
A political cartoon depicts Democratic Senator Harry F. Byrd as a knight holding a sword labeled "Budget Cut." Senator Scott Lucas, dressed as a British Beefeater attempts to proetect the "Government Spending" dragon from Byrd's sword by claiming, "Hold your sword Sir Harry-he's only a pet dragon!" Byrd's fiscally conservative policies clashed with Democratic Senate Majority Leader Scott W. Lucas's government spending approach.
