(This is entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)
Sunday at Church was quite dismal – Few out and no sermon worth listening to. Saw “Steamboat Round The Bend.” Letter from Dit in Silver City. Wrote to El Fidel reserving room for Teacher’s Connection and also to U.S. Civil Service Commission to find out kinds of jobs, requirements and salaries – Don’t know what it will bring –
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
Mussolini named his terms for settlement of the Abyssinia Crisis, demanding a huge eastern swath of Ethiopia’s territory and for its army to be reduced by half, with the other half put under control of Italian officers.
The Red Army reintroduced military ranks that had been abolished after the October Revolution of 1917.
