WILL ROGERS MAKES COMMENT ON OUR SLOWNESS IN AVIATION

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 28., 1926 — Our army played our Navy Saturday and the game was refereed by our aviation students, both good men. We will have a football team from our aviation school as soon as our far-sighted statesmen appropriate enough to have eleven students. They are just waiting for two more wars to see if flying machines are practical.

WILL ROGERS FEELS AT HOME WHEN HE REACHES SOUTH BEND

SOUTH BEND, Ind., Nov. 29, 1926. — I always wanted to see this town. I was born in a Studebaker wagon, awakened every morning by a Big Ben clock, grew up walking between the handles of an Oliver chilled plow, wore home made shirts made by Singer sewing machines and read all my life of Notre Dame, whose scholastic standing is one touchdown and a field goal higher than any other modern educational hindrance.

Yours for narrower minds and broader stadiums.

REFLECTIONS BY WILL ROGERS ON SPIRITISM AND POLITICS

KALAMAZOO, Mich., Nov. 30, 1926. — Poor Valentino! They won’t even let him alone after he is dead. They got him conversing with women in spirit that he wouldn’t even speak to in life.

P.S. The Democrats lost in Maine yesterday. They only had one chance and that was to get Coolidge to endorse the Republican candidate, and he was too smart for ’em.

MR. ROGERS ASKS WHICH COUNTRY WANTS TO BE REGULATED NEXT

TOLEDO, Ohio, Dec. 1, 1926. — Our gunboats are all in the Chinese war, our Marines have all landed in Nicaragua, Kellogg is sending daily ultimatums to Mexico and Coolidge is dedicating memorials to eternal peace.

Who is the next country wants their affairs regulated Look what we did for Tacna-Arica.

MR. ROGERS’S IDEA OF THE TRUTH ON SOME CURRENT TOPICS

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Dec. 2, 1926. — The truth is finally coming out. Jack Dempsey was poisoned, Harvard was lampooned, Rockne forgot to bless the future Cardinals, the Army and the Navy were overcome by stockyard fumes, Hall-Mills committed suicide on account of no privacy in the lane, Peaches was canned, Aimee blames the static, Ma Ferguson says it took a man to do it and seven Republican Senators have just discovered that they were running on the wrong ticket.

The only one with no alibi was Queen Marie. She said, “I come to sell you Rumania.” I think a three hundred million loan will get it — revolutions and all.

Yours for latest alibi news, Will.
