Went to school but was excused from 12 o’clock to go to town to see about my ticket. Nat’l RR would do nothing about it.  Went in the afternoon to see Ms. Pacifia and they are to write San Antonio about it.  Went to school and Miss Stephensen wrote a letter for me to the Dept of immigration for another tourist card.  Was raining so hard that I didn’t stop at the Immigration office. Doped up for a cold! Copied music.

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