Will Rogers Daily Telegrams

(Continued)

ENID, Okla. — WILL ROGERS SUGGESTS A USE FOR SOUTH’S BIG COTTON CROP

MUSKOGEE, Okla. — Oct. 23, 1926. Just arrived back home in Oklahoma in time to solve the problem of too much cotton in the South. Let everybody put it in their ears to keep from hearing campaign speeches.

Still running neck and neck with Marie. The Banker’s Club of Claremore are going to give me a lunch, more exclusive than her bankers lunch. Just he and I alone.

WILL ROGERS FINDS ODD PEOPLE AND A WONDERFUL COUNTRY

JOPLIN, Mo. — Oct. 24, 1926. You meet the oddest people on your travels. I met a fellow who did not claim to be in Lovers’ Lane the night of the Hall-Mills murder. If they had charged admission to that they would have made more than the Dempsey-Tunney fight. You people certainly have a wonderful country in this America, and I am thoroughly enjoying my trip.

MR. ROGERS ANTICPATES THE QUEEN’S RANCH VISIT

PONCA CITY, Okla. — Oct. 25, 1926. Am at Miller Brothers’ 101 Ranch just ahead of the Queen’s visit here. She will love it. It’s just the size of Rumania, only more conveniences. There is a bathroom here to every revolution there. Cowboys sleep in silk pajamas, round-up in Rolls-Royces and dress for dinner. If I were the King I wouldn’t trust her with this outfit.

These open faces out here are marvelous.

POLITICAL NOTE BY MR. ROGERS ON THE SITUATION IN OKLAHOMA

OKMULGEE, Okla. — Oct. 26, 1926. Oklahoma is a doubtful State, and after hearing all the candidates on both sides, it’s still doubtful what good any of them will be to it.

Mine is the only authentic tour of America that is getting anywhere. All others are balking.

Will.
