The Cartoonist

A man and his wife are staring at a large barometer marked: Cold War, Change, Peace, Happy Christmas and War, with one hand pointing to change, and one to cold war. He holds a newspaper which reads Fighting Ends on Indian Border. Cuba Quiet.
Thank heaven – the barometer is rising!

The Herald, 23 November 1962

The fighting along the Indian/Chinese border had ended, and the Cuban Missile Crisis, which had threatened to bring about a nuclear war, was over.
