Junior Play matinee and night – We dismissed at 2:30 for it.  Went to town and then played some tennis though the wind was blowing. A Mr. Larcum strolled over and refereed for us.  It turns out that he lives next door to Mrs. Martens.  The play was “Seventeen”  I know the story and there were 4 acts as it dragged a little before it was over!  We (Alyce Claire) took Mrs. Markham.  Later AC and I went to the Busy Bee for soup.  Harriet has put an idea for roller skates in my head!  Should like to brush up on my French, too!  Heard some Institute Officers making fair stabs at it last night at Grady’s – Reminded me of Jaime!

Friday early  1 A.M.  But not in bed for long – Alyce Claire got a call from Gene that Joyce would have her “baby party” right away.  In 15 minutes Alyce Claire had decided that she must go and I would not let her come alone so we both left town at 1:45 A.M. Got there at aaoc3:15.  The baby came at 6 but it was dead.  The less said, the better. It was a terrible shock to everyone, she had been so perfectly healthy.  We left about 7 and got back in time to give 2 exams. I gave Joyce some chloroform but aside from that  I rather stayed out of it – Haven’t been much good all the rest of the day.  My first experience with a birth but I hope it is not my last.  There followed a bitter discussion on A.C’s part on life in general and having families and suffering in particular. Poor girl!  She has been through too much in the last few months.  Wish I could do something for her that would really help.
