This 1940 Charles Casa illustration of a prostitute leaning against a brick wall on a deserted street corner uses boldly contrasting
colors to accent its message. The title, "Easy to get," refers to both the woman and the disease. The contrast of
yellow on red background and the suggestiveness of the image and text are both used to catch the attention of the viewer while
ultimately challenging the soldiers' correlation between sexually available women and good times.
