In the senator's left hand, a composing stick.

Capper (1865-1951) was Senator from Kansas for 30 years (1919-1949.) He started a media empire that lasted into the 1960s. I can still remember Capper's Farmer and Capper's Weekly, which I read in my grandparents' house.

is saying "Hey Mr. Senator, you can't set that type! This is a union shop."
