Friday March 8, 1935

(This is an entry from the journal entitled Mexico Summer written by Elizabeth Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago.  Click here to read more)

Klyng still out – Velma ate lunch with us – I was invited to a weinier roast with about 40 of those 9th graders but I had to refuse.  I don’t like to leave Alyce Claire much nowadays – And besides I feel that I have to do something with the talk of the Cruz Azul ( Mexican Red Cross) Mrs. Martens asked me to tell them something of my trip last summer.  I don’t know what to say. There is so much of that summer that is not easily expressed. Can take the pictures that I have. That will help. Nellie Monroe came over for the first time this year though she has tried to make a date – Betty came to while her folk went to “When a Man’s a Man”  Hardly any work done on the “speech”

Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:


Sadly, Hachiko the dog dies.  He is the Akita that faithfully waited for his master every day in Japan for 10 years after his death.  A film was made about the story and a statue stands in his tribute.

Malcolm Campbell drives a car over 300 mph for the first time in Daytona Beach, Florida.
