WILLIAM GREEN AND THE COMMITTEE FOR INDUSTRIAL ORGANIZATION (The Hunter and the Woodman)
for more on William Green and CIO, see also Labor History Timeline

A Man went out Lion-hunting into a forest, where, meeting with a Woodman, he asked him if he had seen any tracks of a Lion, and if he knew where his lair was.

"Yes," said the Woodman, "and if you will come with me I will show you the Lion himself."

At this the Hunter, turning ghastly pale, and with his teeth chattering, said: "Oh! Thank you -- it was the Lion's track, not himself, that I was hunting."
