Initiative needed here. Washington, D.C., June 3. Initiative was certainly needed when Clarence Jackson, diminutive news photographer, was sent to get a closeup of policeman Edward F. Brown, 6 foot, 9 1/2 inch arm of the law who guards the entrance to the Senate cloakroom at the Capitol. Jackson got the picture even though he had to resort to a desk to get on speaking terms with the huge policeman. Photo by Harris & Ewing, 1938. http://hdl.loc.gov/loc.pnp/hec.24695
