ENID, Okla. —
WILL ROGERS’ DISPATCH
FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Dec. 3, 1926, The Hall-Mills jurymen turned in the verdict they had 25 days ago. For economy’s sake, if for nothing else, why don’t we let the jurymen render their verdict when they are sworn in instead of when they are sworn out. Yours for economic justice,

WILL ROGERS HAS DINNER WITH ‘THE WET NURSE FOR MARYLAND’
BALTIMORE, Md. — Dec. 10, 1926, Just had dinner tonight with a guy that has every earmark of the next renter for the White House in case Cal don’t renew his lease. There ain’t but one thing will hold this fellow back and that ain’t much, but you know how voters are. He is a Democrat. He is now the wet nurse for Maryland.
Yours for likely prospects.
