W.H. Shields drew this cartoon in 1936, when William Langer was elected Governor for a second time. As a man and his wife look out over their farmstead, the man says, "Well Mother - we won't lose out home now --- Bill Langer is Governor Again." At the couple's feet is an issue of the Nonpartisan League newspaper, The Leader. The headline reads "Langer Declares Moratorium." A cat also is at the man's feet.
