This poster depicts a mule "Industry" kicking and snorting surrounded by flies "Tax," and "Unwise Laws," and its food is infested with rat "Waste,", bugs, and snake "Agitation." Issued by the National Industrial Conservation Movement, 30 Church Street, New York City. No. E-5.
Below the title reads: "If our good mule "Industry" were made National Food Dictator he would urge your appetite to do without unwise business laws, wasteful agitation, excessive taxation and labor strife, in the interest of America's industrial health. He would also urge the unrestricted use of harmony, co-operation and fair public opinion towards business men, for he knows that he himself needs these foodstuffs, if he is to do his full bit in the trenches and keep his strength for the trade war which will follow the restoration of peace. Give "Industry" a show as a food dictator."
