The unanimous reaction to Bill Mauldins satirical cartoons
they alasare not out of date. You can show them today and show
the continuity of the struggle for cleaner water, air, for husbanding our
natural resources, etc. There was also a unanimous decision to improve
the picture quality of the slides and show them in this area.
Bill Mauldin became well known, revered by the troops, for his
World War II
cartoons of ironic wartime humor depicted through the antics and thoughts
of two up front soldiers. His cartoons have a bite. Example from his book,
Up Front (1945): Here his two guys, Willie and Joe, are sapping for mines
in front of a jeep. one guy with the detector hovered over a spot and the
one on the ground. They are looking at each other with obvious concern.
A small sign just off the road next to the jeep says ACHTUNG MINEN. In the
jeep a one star General is saying, "Dont hurry for me, son. I like to see
young men take an interest in their work."
