Description

Cartoon depicts Uncle Sam deep in thought as the "OAS" holds a piece of paper entitled "Sanctions," remarking "Can't You Handle it Alone???" Off to the side, a man in a fur coat, "Stolen U.S. Property," dances. With the approaching OAS conference the deep division exists among the countries of the Western Hemisphere on what action to take to prevent the spread of Communism from Cuba.
