Thursday March 21,1935

Choir practice as usual. Should have been to P.T.A. Meeting, too, but couldn’t make both.  Mrs. Brenneman said if anybody asked, to blame her!  Bernard brought me home but in the course of the journey (!?) we stopped at Bess and Prentice White’s to see about a trunk for Mrs. B.  We played a game called 3 little pigs, played like Parchesi (?) but lots more fun –

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

Persia was officially renamed. From this moment on the map of Asia appeared the state of Iran. According to the authorities, foreign representatives were not allowed to use the name “Persia.”

Hitler’s moves making everyone nervous.
