Felt like the tag-and-go of a misspent life all day.  My cold is worse – Went to Velma’s for music & to practice with Mrs. Martens at one.  I have to play tomorrow of all days! For two cents I wouldn’t do it!  Saw Mrs. Garcia and she came to Mrs. Martens to report the Council meeting at Dallas that she had just come from. Told us of refusal of Catholic Priest to contribute to the order of service to the Mexican column in the Record.   She put in the whole story in today’s paper!

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