The Hand That Threatens Our Industrial Life / American Industry - The Heart of the Nation
Poster showing a hand "Strife, Excessive taxes, Unwise laws, Disloyalty, Agitation, Waste" threatening an industrial district shaped like a heart. A tiny bird comments, "Co-operation is what is needed most." Text below image: More than 32,000 American industrial plants have been placed at the disposal of the government to win this war. Their effectiveness must not be hampered by enemy agitators who cause bad feeling between wage-earners and wage-payers. Every community is interested in promoting industrial prosperity.
