(Tom) Pendergast of Kansas City, right, directing head of one of the most powerful political machines in the United States, as he appeared at the Democratic National Convention at Houston in 1928. Joseph B. Shannon, left, until recently the leader of an opposing faction of Kansas City Democrats, who was elected to Congress in the Fifth District.
