On the far right is A20's grandfather, E. W. Anglin. When the U.S. militia was mobilized in about 1916 or 1917 to deal with bandits along the Texas-Mexico border, many workers were drafted from the Ford Motor Co. plant in Michigan. Henry Ford Sr. objected so much that he and the Chicago Tribune got into quite an argument. Ford argued that the mobilization of the militia was not needed. Then the Tribune called Ford an anarchist. Ford sued the paper for one million dollars, so the Tribune sent representatives to South Texas to recruit witnesses regarding the bandit trouble along the Texas-Mexico border. Among the witnesses was E. W. Anglin, then a deputy sheriff in Hidalgo County; they were at the trial for over thirty days. The result of the civil suit was that Ford got a judgement for six cents and the Chicago Tribune had to pay all court costs. The two men on the left clowning in their Mexican hats were from the Chicago Tribune.
