Had planned a dinner party at Dwight’s for Velma and Thelma’s birthday but Dwight had the flu so Bernard and I ate at the Cafeteria. I went to Pete’s and Velma’s until he sent a telegram and worked a little (very little, I think!) Got a Kodak picture of Pete and Velma. Mrs. Martens for lunch.
Here’s what else is happening 80-years-ago today:
Great airship, USS Macon, crashes into Pacific Ocean. Amazingly the entire crew survives.
Also, today the 1st U.S. airplane flight with auto slung beneath fuselage, it happened in New York.
