Political cartoon by Moco Yardley titled, "We Must Win Over a Very Suspicious Chaperone." The cartoon depicts two figures in gowns in the foreground. One is depicted as a young lady in white while the other is depicted as an older woman in black and is labeled as "Mistrust of Yanqui Motives" with a white dove near her shoulder that is the chaperone the title of the cartoon is referring to. In the upper left corner there is a depiction of the White House with figures exiting and walking towards the two women on the right side of the cartoon. The two front figures in the line of people exiting the White House are Dr. Morales playing and Mike Mansfield playing guitars and singing, "A Puerto Rican Assistant Secretary of State" with a paper reading "For Better Latin American Relations". There is a small figure (possible representing Yardley) in the lower left corner that says "The climate, it ees much better here..." with a cat figure saying, "...I theenk."
