Here, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Clifford Berryman puts his own symbolic spin on Washington’s cherry blossoms. They provide a festive backdrop for President Franklin Delano Roosevelt who is depicted as royalty. Wearing an eagle, the symbol of the New Deal, atop a crown—he is attended by child-like figures labeled “House” and “Senate” while Congress members dance around his throne. Leading the parade is Mississippi senator Pat Harrison, followed by Speaker of the House Henry Thomas Rainey, Florida senator Duncan U. Fletcher, Secretary of the Interior Harold Ickes, Texas congressman John Wright Patman, and Washington state senator Clarence C. Dill. Arrayed in short Roman robes and playing horns, each one champions a cause including taxes, silver, the stock market, bonuses, and legislation.
