A man is posing in a leather fringed costume and fur cap, with what appears to be a fake beard. He is holding two dead animals up in his right hand. Two other men wearing American Legion caps are looking at the animals. Caption reads: <b>"A 'mighty hunter'</b> was the butt of jokes at the annual past commanders' dinner Thursday night at Cudworth American Legion Post, 1756 N. Prospect Av. Richard F. Redfield, 168 E. Willow rd., Fox Point, present commander, came in costume--as tradition demands. Past commanders Harry E. Bradley (left), 7434 Melrose Av., Wauwatosa, and Frederick F. Frick, 2851 Cleveland Park Dr., poked fun at Redfield."
