ENID, Okla. — ROGERS DISCUSSES AMERICANS WHO TRAVEL INCOGNITO ABROAD

ABOARD S. S. LEVIATHAN, Sept. 23, 1926. Some Americans in Europe are traveling incognito. They are not bragging on where they come from, and nobody knows they are Americans.

BENEFIT ON THE LEVIATHAN RAISES $30,000 FOR FLORIDA

ABOARD THE S. S. LEVIATHAN, Sept. 25, 1926. With ex-Secretary Hughes to work with, raised $30,000 tonight for Florida.

We will have their clothes before we land.

P. S., Glad to hear Kearns won the big fight.

HUGHES-ROGERS BENEFIT TEAM GETS MORE AID FOR FLORIDA

ON BOARD THE LEVIATHAN, Sept. 26, 1926. Everybody on the boat is having a hard time packing, trying to make bottles lock like soiled clothing.

Secretary Hughes and I are coming into New York with one of the best benefit acts in the show business. I hate to see the team break up. Mr. Hershey of Hershey, Pa., gave us $8,000 more this afternoon for Florida for repeating the act.

Hope my wife gets her Irish table linens in free. Back home and broke.

WILL ROGERS GOES A-SHOPPING

TORONTO, Ont., Oct. 10, 1926. Had just arrived home after fixing everything up in Europe, when White House spokesman dispatched me to look over Canada and make England following offer for it. One doubtful World Court seat. Prohibition, including enforcement officers. “Peaches.” Hayti. All States south of Dixon Line. And throw in Al Smith. Deal pending. Will wire tomorrow.

WILL ROGERS REPORTS:

OTTAWA, Ont., Oct. 11, 1926. Arrived Canada capital today. More sentiment here to be annexed by Mexico than by America. They know us too well. If we get any nation to join us it will have to be some stranger. We only have one reason for wanting Canada and a modification of the Volstead Act will eliminate. Waiting instructions.

WILL ROGERS’S DAILY REPORT

MONTREAL, Que., Oct. 12, 1926: All my work gone for nothing. Just received following wire from White House spokesman:

“Let Canada deal go having enough trouble with American farmers without annexing any more.”

Called to Buffalo for conference with Democratic leaders.
