Accentuate the Positive,
Eliminate the Negative,
Latch on to the Affirmative,
Don`t Mess with Mr. In-Between.
Hit song, 1945, Music
by Harold Arlen, Lyrics by Johnny Mercer
strength was a common visual theme in patriotic
posters. Pictures of powerful men and mighty
machines illustrated America`s ability to channel
its formidable strength into the war effort.
American muscle was presented in a proud display
of national confidence.
