Political Foes? Nonsense! All Is Harmony!    (April Fool's Day - 1935)


Here is the first picture of the new Harmony Three formed by Father Coughlin, Senator Long and General Johnson. After weeks of bitter wrangling about financial problems they have accepted a vaudeville contract which solves for them, personally, at least, all further worries about money. They were snapped during a rehearsal of their opening number, which begins like this:

Oh, we're Charley and Huey and Hugh!
We're pals: no hooey—that's true!
The state of the nation—depression—inflation
No longer makes each of us blue—hey-hey!
For we're Charley and Huey and Hugh.

Note how enthusiastically the General, who sings bass, is coming in on the last note. Each member of the trio also does a specialty turn. Father Coughlin sings: 'Love Thy Neighbor.' Senator Long performs a political contortion by straddling a fence, keeping an ear to the ground, and playing 'Every Man a King' on the big bassoon— all at the same time. General Johnson does an interpretive dance, 'The Dying Eagle,' in the manner of Mary Wigman.
