Finished Christmas packing and shopping. Got my new coat – like it muchly. Found out I could go home by Pecos much easier so I called the family long distance and told him so! Seemed nice to hear his voice – wished I’d asked to say hello to some of the others – seemed late (12 by their time) to have them up! Packed and got ready to leave early tomorrow (3 P.M.)
Here’s what else happened 80-years-ago today:
A rape trial in the small town of Shelbyville, Tennessee ends in riots, death and destruction. The second German rocket is successfully launched 3.5 meters into the sky over the North Sea a Stratosphere Rocket is set to launch from Roswell.
