Political cartoon by Vic Runtz of the Bangor Daily News published January 28, 1964, shows Senator Margaret Chase Smith at a sporting goods store picking out a pair of running shoes.

The shoes have a sign over them saying "GOP Presidential Primary." A little man representing Maine is waving a Dirigo banner watching the Senator and a little press cat is writing "'Formidable' is the word for Margaret!"
