(This is an entry from the journal entitled Mexico Summer written by Elizabeth Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago. )
Started to register. Got courses all arranged and discovered we must have pictures so spent the afternoon getting some for Betty. I gave them 2 terrible ones of me that I had taken in Roswell, of the 3 for a dime variety. Decided to go to the show, called Carsey to go with us. Finally decided on the “Scarlet Pimpernel” even though Carsey had seen it. It was worth suffering through a Western to see. I have quoted “They seek him here, they seek him there ” ever since.
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
Riots stop the building of a gas pipe-line, the wealth tax is soon to become a reality and the flood water begin to recede.
The German ministry expands its criminal code to encompass prosecution for homosexual activity.
“For better or worser” a new Popeye cartoon is released.
