Thanksgiving Day! Went to the midnight matinee last night.  Sam, Alyce Claire and I saw Thanks a Million” Very Good!  Today I got up about 10  – Had a visit from Mr. Parker and Mr.  Garcia .  Harry came just as they left to see Alyce Claire.  I had to practice with Mrs. Martens for Sunday.  Went to Gladys and Mrs. Palmer’s for dinner. There were only 17 there!  Sam, Lenore , Alyce Claire, Mr. Young (Chief of Police) Mrs . Young (C.R.’s mother), Mrs. Mason, Mr and Mrs. Tepe and son (cadet) and another cadet friend – all those besides the Palmer’s and Vivian and family!  Some good time!  Got home after four. Studied shorthand – went to the show “This is the Life” with Lenore and Charlotte St John.  Surely have been to the shows lately. Am going to live on nothing  for two weeks now!


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

The 11th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade takes place in New York City.

The Italian Ministry of Propaganda announced a ban on performances of music by any countries who had voted in the League of Nations for the sanctions against Italy.

Hitler declared all German males between 18 and 45 to be army reservists.
