Last night there was a “Black and White” Ball at the Churubusco Country Club, I suppose. Surely would have liked to have been there. Letter from Dad yesterday. Went to Baptist Church and heard a nice young preacher with black hair in a white suit with a blue tie. Rather good – looking – Missionary Meeting heard me explain some pictures of Mexico that I have. Saw Jaime’s “Esquire”
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
Grand Rapids Michigan says goodbye to the Street Car.
The start of the Swiss Grand Prix, Bremgarten.
The U.S. State Department published the text of a note sent to the Soviet Union, threatening an interruption of friendly relations unless the Soviets put a stop to plotting the violent overthrow of the American government.
