Will Rogers Daily Telegrams 11-12-13

ENID, Okla. — MAYOR ROGERS OF BEVERLY HILLS RECORDS A WELCOME TO TOWN

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Dec. 21, 1926. As Mayor of Beverly Hills, I arrived today amid big demonstrations. They mistook me for Ormiston. If not a success as Mayor, they offer to change City Hall into a tabernacleme to preach, and Doug and Tom Mix and Bill Hart to take up collection; Ben Turpin to run radio, so there will be no chance of a scandal.

Honest, they gave me a great welcome, and I want to thank everybody from the bottom of my heart and President Coolidge for a lovely nice wire. Also Al Smith and my opposition, Jimmy Walker of New York; also Hiram Johnson and Shortridge.

The only Mayor that hasn’t made a mistake so far, his honor of Beverly Hills, the best town west of Nantucket Lightship.

MAYOR ROGERS OF BEVERLY HILLS TAKES NOTE OF ARMY TROUBLES

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Dec. 22, 1926. I see where Brig. Gen. Reilly says that American soldiers are deserting at the rate of a thousand a month.

Well, we have one consolation. A thing like that can’t last for over a couple of months. We are refunding to the taxpayers more soldiers than we are taxes.

It’s a good thing for us that the last war was the last one.

HIS HONOR THE MAYOR OF BEVERLY HILLS, CAL.

P.S. Thank Charley Dawes for a nice wire. May Morpheus never overtake him during an emergency.

WILL ROGERS’ CHRISTMAS ADVICE AND A TRIBUTE TO TY AND TRIS

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Dec. 23, 1926. I am too busy replacing presents to write today. I bought some mechanical and electric things for the kids and wore ‘em out playing with ‘em myself. Don’t forget to lay by a few presents today for those who you didn’t think would send you anything. You may not have to use ‘em anyway.
