diary 2

The story continues with the second journal.  This is an entry from her personal diary, by Elizabeth Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago.  Click here to read more.


My week on duty and I forgot and didn’t eat breakfast!  We ate supper early and visited with Harry Black and Pat McNally while at the table.   Learned that at the Board Meeting, D.N. had been fired!  However, because of financial power of J.R. Hinkle (Clarence is on the Board) he may be re-elected.  They, so I hear, are going to “reconsider.”   This isn’t for publication but I do wish we had a more progressive Supt!  Went to “Rose Marie” in the evening.  Saw the same Betty Boop Comedy that we saw in Lubbock – about the cats ringing “Not Now, Meow”!  I think it is the best of its kind so far.

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