Monday March 11, 1935

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

Mr. Little had wanted me to translate some legal material into Spanish. I found several expressions that I didn’t know, so he said he’d get David Calderon to do it.  Went to the band room and school orchestra concert with Joyce Grady. Alyce Claire had a date with Mr. Akin.  The concert was very good.  Excellent! Should have gone to see Mrs. Tom Parker about making my dresses – Mailed a letter to Carsey.

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

A new Time Magazine with Frank Hogan on the cover.

On March 11, 1935 Hitler introduced military conscription in Germany. Serial killer Albert Fish enters and insanity plea, claiming voices from god told him to kill children.   It’s snowing in the plain’s and Havana is deserted after a weekend of fighting.
