Will Rogers Daily Telegrams 2-20-14

ENID, Okla. — ROGERS’S FIRST, LAST AND ONLY OPINION ON THE SNYDER CASE

PAWTUCKET, R. I., May 6, 1927. — This is my first, last and only opinion on the brassiere case:

The moral of Gray’s testimony, as I gather it, is that no matter what town you are in you can get liquor, and the whole mystery of the case, as I see it, is how did he buy all this liquor on $5,000 a year?

Both parties claim they were tempted by the other. Well, after looking at pictures of both of them, I have decided that neither one had much resisting power in the first place.

The tabloid readers are still reading Mrs. Snyder’s testimony. The case is moving faster than they can read. So long!

Will Rogers.

P. S. — Guess all the sob writers will move over to the Peaches Hempel case now.

THOUGHTS FROM WILL ROGERS UP IN COOLIDGE’S COUNTRY

MONTPELIER, Vt., May 7, 1927. — Well, here I am for the first time up in “Calvin’s country.” I have passed through here coming down from Canada lots of times but I never stopped off here. Have had the most beautiful trip today from Boston on the Central Vermont Railroad up the White River.

I won’t know until tonight how I am going to make out up here with these Vermonters when I open up with my riddles on “Cal.” Of course they aren’t so terribly strong for him because he left here and went over to Massachusetts; so about all he ever did for them was to be born here.

If you are doing some motoring this Summer, why, don’t overlook this part of the country, it is beautiful. Then, you see, you are near enough to Canada to make it mighty interesting to over 98 per cent of Americans.

There is nothing thickens one like travel.

Yours,

The Mayor.

ROGERS DRAWS A PARALLEL WITH ROBINSON CRUSOE

NEW YORK, N. Y., May 8, 1927. — Mr. Butler, Mr. Coolidge’s Friday, just returned from a reconnoitering tramp over on to the west end of Crusoe Island and reported to Robinson that from the looks of what had been washed up on the beach from mishandled Democratic crafts that Crusoe should have plenty to subsist on for another four years.

Yours,

Will Rogers.

P. S. — We all would like to see our boys the first to make the Paris flight, but as the Frenchmen have started they are carrying the good wishes of everybody over here.
