Saw “St. Louis Kid” (Jimmy Cagney – reminds me a lot of Jaimie!) Too many shows for a poor working girl – Got English Journey by J.B. Priestley from Carnegie. Hope it is good. Mrs. Burdette sent my robe over. It is immense! I plan to take it up all the ways there are. I know I look woosey but so will 69 others! Put dog mange cure on my head tonight – Don’t even know if I will be able to sleep with myself or not – May have to go into the next room! Card came in the mail inviting me to the Martens a week from tomorrow morning at 10. Hazel Hanson’s wedding I suppose, though it doesn’t state so on the card. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if she were already married! What to give her! Bought Christmas cards and had some left from last year and still back a dozen. I’ll probably think of more people to send to, too. Sent Dit my tafetta dress for the dance tomorrow and a check I had forgotten about.
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
War advances in Europe – Hungary is the target. Old Man Winter takes over the country and the U.S. and Japan talk tough about a Naval race.
