Alyce Claire got back from Tatum just in time for school. Letter from Ty-Ty says Dit thinks I am going to be an auntie!  Ojala! say I! She suggests Laredo as a good place for me to work with Spanish. Ty-Ty plans to go home today.  Gave Lorenzo Burciaga a test for  Merit badge in interpreting (Spanish).  Mary has a cold and has stayed in bed all day. I wish this were  next week so exams would be all over with and new work started.  Broke crystal of my watch yesterday so I took it down to Mr. Bullock to have it fixed – Nothing infuriates me more –
