Here's anotther one. I would be willing to bet that is Karl Marx with the red flag in his hand, as the American soldier encourages the communists to leave "for foreign parts".

Our Own Cartoonist

The Advertiser for a time had it's own editorial cartoonist. A M. L. Rugloski went to work for the Advertiser in March 1920 and created cartoons for the paper based on local concerns. Unfortunately it didn't last to long. This is the inaugural cartoon from March 18th 1920.

School update

More good news, The city Council has passed a Resolution to allow the Historical Society to move the schoolhouse onto city property. Present thinking will place it between the Lake Wobegon Trailhead rest area and the city maintenance building.
