Saturday September 14, 1935

(This is entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)

Played tennis at 630 AM.  Went to Betty’s to wash the car.  Letter from Victor Velasquez asking me to say that he had never slandered Mexico, etc. as he is about to be put to trial for alleged statements reported by “Big Ears” New Yorker!  Bought a blouse and a black hat and brown shoes!  Sam came for the week end and is Alyce Claire happy!  Gene Kittler stopped by and had supper with us on the way from Albuquerque! Evelyn Polk yesterday returned from Melorose to get a job in the office of Dr.’s Bradley and Johnson – Surely am thrilled over her getting the place!  Maurenne is in Albuquerque studying to be a nurse and likes it tremendously!  Pete and Velma surely are to be congratulated on all they have done for those girls – Wrote to Pauline R. about staying with Janette, Alyce Claire and me in Albuquerque at Teacher’s Meeting.

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