Transcription"The great powerful hand of Big Business has reached out many a time in the past and has crushed struggling farmers one by one. The same hand today is a menace over the farms of North Dakota--but not so much of a menace as it was before the Nonpartisan League came into being. the 'Big Five' of the farmers, representing the combined strength of all the farmers in the state, has reached out to stay the hand of Big Business and to save the farmers from ruin." - Caption with cartoon.
