Back in the 1920s, Will Rogers was holding forth as the outstanding humorous commentator of the day. His ad lib observations on politics were widely quoted. In particular, I remember an occasion in November, 1928, when — just before election day — his lines in a play were richly interlarded with references to the forthcoming elections in which Governor A1 Smith of New York was contesting Herbert Hoover, the Secretary of Commerce. Then, two days later, the election had been decided — very decisively — and Will Rogers entertained us with a completely new collection of ad lib remarks about it.
