American Golfer in its December 1912 issue 
ran a caption contest for this little political cartoon. 



THE AMERICAN GOLFER will give $25 for the best title for the above. 
Answers will be received up to January 15th, and the name and address, of the winner will be printed in the February issue. 
There are no other conditions—there is no " catch "—simply apply the best title.

This carton originally appeared in our ( American Golfer ) December issue. A prize was offered for the best title, 
which, in our opinion, is "Out and In," as submitted by Col. John F. Lumpkin, of Kansas City,Mo., aid-de-camp to the Governor of Missouri.

A vast number of replies were received, a few of which we give hereunder:
