ENID, Okla. —
WILL ROGERS IS ENJOYING PRE-MOVIE CALIFORNIA
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., Aug. 11, 1927. — Up here attending the beautiful Santa Barbara fiesta, showing the life in California before Fords, movie salaries and realtors in knee-breeches made a Coney Island out of the State.
P. S. — The weather was not unusual.
NO COOLIDGE NEWS WITHOUT A RODEO, WILL ROGERS SAYS
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., Aug. 12, 1927. — Didn’t read anything about Mr. Coolidge today. Guess there was no rodeo yesterday. Twelve planes were to have left for Honolulu today, but they are waiting till Tuesday, which is always a better day for flying.
ROGERS SEES REPUBLICANS CONTROLLING THE ELEMENTS
HOLLYWOOD, Cal., Aug. 14, 1927. — Biggest crop in years is reported to Mr. Coolidge. That man is in league with the Lord to give the farmers relief without letting it go through Congress. I tell you the Republicans are controlling the elements. Watch election year for even bigger crops than this year.
WILL ROGERS DECLARES A TIE FOR BRAINS ON STAGE, SCREEN
BEVERLY HILLS, Cal., Aug. 15, 1927. — Doug Fairbanks stated yesterday in an interview that there are more brains on the screen than on the stage. After viewing some of the productions put on lately by both screen and stage, I think most people will agree that in the matter of brains displayed it’s an absolute tie between the two.
Yours, a disciple of both,
WILL ROGERS, EX-MAYOR, GIVES OUT A WARNING
BEVERLY HILLS, Cal., Aug. 16, 1927. — The State Legislature of California passed a law saying that no one not a politician could hold office. And I hereby notify the world that Beverly Hills has left my bed and board and I will not be responsible for any debts contracted by said municipality. I don’t want to knock but the town never was as dead. There hasn’t been a Beverly date line about a divorce since I got out, not a shooting, not even a swimming pool built. I didn’t choose to be Mayor in the first place but they drafted me.
Just a good man looking for something better,
