A Critical Place for a Difference of Opinion

This illustration entitled, "A Critical Place for a Difference of Opinion", by cartoonist Clifford Berryman, which appeared in the Washington Evening Star on February 24, 1916, alludes to the difficulty President Woodrow Wilson has in reaching a decision as to what to do about the sinking of Allied passenger and merchant ships by German submarines, as opinions within the American public and Democrats in the House of Representatives were divided.
