French soldier sits morosely against a tree trunk, a bandage covering his right eye. Man in middleeastern clothing leans against a rock and philosophizes: "The bedouins punctured your ey. Everyone says, 'That poor Dumanet who has lost his eye.' Well, not at all! The joker had two of them; that means he still has one left." Caption under cartoon reads "There are men who are happy!" (Virginia K. Anderson 04/10/95)
