Off with the yoke of Uncle Sam depicted in post office mural, is charge of Arctic explorer. Washington, D.C., Sept. 10. Vilhjamur Stefansson, the Artic explorer, today charged that artist Rockwell Kent had painted on the wall in the Post Office Building here an exhortation to Puerto Rico to throw off American Rule. The gibberish, says Stefansson, [...]s translated by his friends and reads: "To the people of Puerto Rico, our friends: go ahead, let [...] change chiefs. That alone can make us equal and free". Postmaster General Farley passes the mural each day as he goes to his office. Miss Mary [....]eveling is viewing the mural in this picture, 9/10/37
