Clipping entitled "'Why Not Talk It Over?'" from the Kansas City Journal-Post on June 19, 1937 with caption stating, "'Instead of having mass meetings,' T. J. Pendergast (shown above) told a group of the city's business leaders Saturday, 'Why don’t you men name a committee of employers to represent you and have that committee sit across the table from a committee of union labor representatives? I think you will accomplish a lot more if you thresh this thing out calmly and peacefully.'"
