Hal, this is from 
The Germans in America.
Main Author:	Huebener, Theodore, 1895-
Language(s):	English
Published:	Philadelphia, Chilton Co., Book Division [c1962]


which is the work that the source cited in the cartoon "lifted" the material from. No idea, however, whether this is reliable. But it's a start if you want to hunt it down. Many of these rah-rah German books aren't too reliable--eg, they're the source of the German lost by one vote as the US official language myth.
