A political game

Keppler, Udo J., 1872-1956
Two women lean out windows. On the left is an Irish domestic representing the "Dem. Party" and on the right is a well-dressed matron representing the "Rep. Party." Between them hangs a balance scale labeled "Party Politics" with Rear Admiral Schley on the left, trying to upset the balance by pulling on the chains, causing the scale to swing wildly, and with Admiral Sampson on the right, struggling to hang on.
