Description:

Cartoon image of the Pacific portion of the earth's globe. In the upper left corner is a smiling Caucasian man in overalls labeled, "You & I" standing in front of a factory. In the foreground, across the ocean, is a caricature of a Japanese soldier (probably Hideki Tojo) running from an artillery shell, over a tropical landscape. Behind him flies a bird saying "D'ya remember Pearl Harbor, kid?!" In the distance is a battleship.
