ENID, Okla. —
WILL ROGERS MAKES A PLEA TO HEFLIN’S CONSTITUENCY
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Feb. 18, 1927. Senator Heflin of Alabama held up all Senate business yesterday for five hours. That’s a record for narrow views.
Tonight in his home capital I am pleading with Alabama to please not exterminate all Catholics, Republicans, Jews, negroes, Jim Reed, Al Smith, Wadsworth, Mellon and Coolidge and the Pope.
Of course, my plea will do no good, for Tom knows the intelligence of his constituency better than we do.
A Missionary Will.
MR. ROGERS IN MISSISSIPPI
MUSES ON FARM POLITICS
JACKSON, Miss. — Feb. 19, 1927. I am here in the native igloo of Senator Pat Harrison. The only way I get booked in Mississippi is to tell them I am a friend of Pat Harrison’s.
They sure are strong for Pat down here, and say, you would be surprised to see what they are doing. This old State is up and going — diversified farming, and talking politics. Lowden has been down here, and he sure made a hit with these old Democrats. I believe they will vote for him.
What’s Cal going to do about the Nary-McHaugen bill? I am betting he vetoes it. Lowden against Harrison in 1928.
