Political cartoon of the head of a person that may be Senator Gruening fishing to make Alaska and Hawaii the 49th and 50th states. The U.S. Capitol Building is in the background with a fisherman holding a fishing rod with the state of Alaska hooked in the Fairbanks region and a net with the 49th and 50th stars in it, and a Hawaii fly hooked on the fisherman's hat.
