Ty-Ty went to both services. After church in the evening (bum preacher from Colorado!) we went to Mrs. Martens for supper – She told my fortune again.  Repeated what she told me before about being married soon. And I am to meet a blond who is wealthy and who is to be a good friend!

China’s Wang Jingwei is on the cover of a new Time Magazine.

Today was designated Hero’s Remembrance Day in Germany.

"Heroes' Remembrance Day" in Berlin (March 17, 1935)
