Put Glover’s Mange stuff on my hair last night so I had it washed early this morning. Pauline was up. Fixed my choir gown except for pressing – Bernard came by and Alyce Claire and I went over to Pete’s and Velma’s. Caught them about to eat supper. Played Hearts and laughed ourselves sick! More fun – Back at 12:30!
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
American Missionaries John and Betty Stam were beheaded in the Chinese town of Miaoshou, after being taken prisoner by the Red Army. Betty managed to hide their 3 month old baby, Helen, in some sleeping bags. She was found two days later by a Chinese Pastor and taken to her grandparents who were also missionaries in China. Eventually Helen was returned to the United States and raise by her Aunt and Uncle.
