SPARTANBURG, S. C. — Oct. 18, 1926. Welcome to Queen Marie. Bless her heart! America will always owe her a debt of gratitude for running Peaches and Aimee McPherson back among the want ads.

P. S., This is Spartanburg, a real town where the Twenty-seventh New York Division trained for Democracy!

QUEEN’S VISIT MOVES ROGERS TO REMARKS ON AMERICANISM

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Oct. 20, 1926. It took two weeks to coach New York politicians how to dress and act to meet the Queen so they all looked like twins and spoke the same little piece. Americans are getting like a Ford carthey all have the same parts, the same upholstering and all make exactly the same noises.

WILL ROGERS IS MOVED TO COVER THE NEWS IN VERSE

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Oct. 21, 1926. Here is all the news there is today in the Memphis papers:

Ford’s curtailing toil;

Marie is selling her dairy,

And Aimee’s got a boil.

MR. ROGERS REPORTS PROGRESS FROM A TOUR OF OKLAHOMA

ADA, Okla. — Oct. 22, 1926. Queen Marie, the ballyhooing Balkan, had nothing on me for a turnout when I hit Oklahoma today. It looked like Alexander returning from the series to Nebraska.

Did you read about the fellow yesterday in Los Angeles remembering seeing Aimee change clothes in her car No wonder he remembers.

This Ada sounds like a girl, but it’s not. And it’s not a town; it’s a city. This is the only authentic and authorized daily diary of my American trip. It’s a wonderful country.
