Had threatened to visit Carsey’s Spanish class but decided to sleep instead. Went at 4:30 to hear Valentin sing – but he didn’t come. Wondered to town – picked up Joe Ben and some coffee. Met Mr. Terrill_ The best looking of them all! He is Carsey’s roommate. After supper I copied songs until Carsey and Jaime were ready to go to Smith’s to hear the boys sing – surely enjoyed listening to them and chiming in once in a while. Peeped in at the “baile” but came back to play Bridge. I told Carsey I thought I couldn’t go to the opera to be given next month! How I do want to go – and with Carsey – he is quite the satisfying companero for everything so it seems! And I don’t care how serious this may sound, it’s true! Slept little that night!
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
A new Time Magazine is out.
Two earthquakes rock California and the plane is found and 4 are rescued.
