The Janet A. Ginsburg Chicago Tribune Collection

"Pla-ay ball!"

This cartoon by Carey Orr contains two cells. In the first image, a "voter" stands at base, "April primaries," holding a baseball bat, "ballot," looks nervously at many baseballs, "candidacies," being thrown in his direction by "office seekers." In the second image, the "office seeker" holds a single baseball "his candidacy," and prepares to throw it toward hundreds of "voters" holding baseball bats, "votes."
