Content description: Mural study depicting three tiers of men arranged according to social classes. At the top is the ruling alliance-President Hoover, J. P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Sr., and Henry Ford shown in league with the gangster, Al Capone. Clutching bags of money, they are depicted as driven by greed and power. Soldiers and lawmen, the civil servants that enforce the status quo and keep the economic system functioning, occupy the middle tier. Tom Mooney, the trade unionist arrested in San Francisco on false charges of pipe bombing, is shown imprisoned at the bottom of the panel.
