About 5 P.M. Alyce Claire and I decided to play some tennis.  When we went to borrow Pete’s racket I found that he was sick with cold or flu.  Played until sundown – not quite an hour – long enough to know we would both be sore tomorrow. Plan to go to Lubbock Saturday, Tatum tomorrow.

The 8th Academy Awards were held in Los Angeles. Mutiny on the Bounty won Best Picture.
