Betty Johnson, Wyatt Johnson and I left Roswell about six a.m. Stopped for awhile in Ruidoso.  Looked at the string  of cots and Betty decided on one for a lease.  it surely is pretty up there.   Ate lunch by the side of the road just N. of Orogrande or Newman in the broiling sun,   Got to El Paso about two o’clock. Rested until four.  Went to town to buy a blue felt had and small bag.  My last little bag broke on the way to El Paso. Stopped in El Paso with Mr. and Mrs. Chas.  Kanen.  909 E River St.  Mrs. Kanen is Mr. Johnson’s sister.  They are lovely.  He is an accountant and worked for many years in Chihuahua!  That night Aubrey Johnson, Betty, Lou Simmons and I went to Waterfill Gardens. Fairly good time.  Lou is not a very good dancer.  Aubrey wasn’t well so we came home about midnight.

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

Ohio State's Jesse Owens has been tabbed by many critics nationwide as the most famous track and field athlete of all time.

Babe Ruth smashes three homers for Boston in his last hurrah.  In Ann Arbor, Michigan Jessie Owens broke three track and field world records and tied for a fourth.   Another kidnapping.
