Coolidge and Geronimo Compared by Will Rogers
Going to fly over in Arizona tomorrow to see Mr. Coolidge dedicate the great Coolidge Dam. Arizona had to build the dam way over in the middle of the State to keep California from claiming two-thirds of the water. The Apache Indians are going to make Mr. Coolidge chief of their tribe to replace Geronimo. They had a great deal in common, neither one said much, and Mr. Coolidge, when a big chief, arrived at the same result with a veto that Geronimo did with a tomahawk.
 
P.S. Am tring to get Lindbergh to take me over in a glider. If he can’t I will have Anne do it.
