Dear Will Since you have brot me into the KogersBrlsbane controversy as to whether President Coolidge will run again in spite his definite dec laration that he will not let me1 say I will accept your bet of and moreovr will give you odds of two to one In other words I will wager to that President Coo lidgo will not run In 1928 I have no inside information but I know the racsidcnt to be a truthful honorable gentleman a high minded patriot who wishes to stand and deserves to stand with Wash ington Jefferson Madison Monroe Jackson Cleveland and all the great Americans who havo been unwilling to endanger tho repub lican character of our American In stitution by substituting a dictator ship for a democracy by breaking tho eightyear limitation tho more than two term restriction estab lished by tho father ot our country Moreover the people have shown their devotion to the principles of Washington by voting out of office the party and the public men who violated the injunction against for eign entangling alliances and I firmly believe that the public would be equally drastic in their action concerning any public man who thot more of his petty personal am bition than he did of Washingtons patriotic injunction against the dangers of a protracted presidential term Randolph Hearst All right Mr Hearst its s bet I can understand your position Yqu as a want htm to run Neither does any other democrat want him to run But its the republicans that he has to listen to and not the democrats Its not his petty personal ambi its that lie has to run to protect tho party that has kept him in office all his life You suy he will be defeated Now I will outdo you in generosity I will bet you five to one that if he runs he will be elected I base this belief on the grounds of the democrats splitting which Is the surest grounds in the world Especially if a wet is nominated and if a wet is not nominated the wet democrats will go republican so either way they jump JXow when I start collecting W I hope this dont make you short Tho charity which I will devote tho winnings of the last bet to is the upbringing of theRogers offspring so they wont havo to rely on public office for sustenance Arthur gob out of this pretty lucky Yours WILL ROGERS Cdliyrijtlil MEXICOS EXECUTED LEADERS Council Bluffs Station Found to Be Below Requirement DKS MOTNES Oct Complaints filed with tho
