Spring seems definitely to be here. Trees are getting green, crocuses, daffodils and tulips are plentiful. Went to the Pecos Valley Music Festival at Baptist Church. Mrs. O’Malley, Elizabeth Grant, Dr. Hosford and Dr. Ballenger were judges!! Met Dr. Hospeth, Saw Earnest Harp there with Dorothy Titus. The more I see her the less I think of her for some reason. Here from Indiana, supposedly making a trip thru the West. Substituted here, went to El Paso with Jack Le Baron and ate off him the whole trip! is a capital sponger and gold digger from what we can discover and to think Earnest has taken up for her! Poor Earnest!
I got “The Magnificent Obsession” from Mrs. Little yesterday and finished it today! It is a good story and does give one something to think on if he has a mind to. The author seems to believe you can do anything you want to if you want hard enough! Just like Miss Poe at the Camp Hospital where Ty-Ty was!
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
Popeye is “Pleased to meet cha”
A bill to pay World War I soldiers immediately passes in the house. President Roosevelt plans to veto the bill.
