Why not settle it socially at Oyster Bay? / Ehrhart.
1 photomechanical print : offset, color.
Illustration shows a vignette cartoon with a central image showing President Theodore Roosevelt sitting with Russian, Japanese, and possibly Chinese figures at his summer retreat at Oyster Bay; his personal secretary, William Loeb, Jr., is serving drinks. The vignette scenes suggest that the Russo-Japanese war, and the control of Manchuria and Vladivostok be decided by competitions between the Russian leaders and those of Japan and China, such as a swimming race, a woodchopping race, a tennis match, and a contest of telling the tallest fish story.
