Arnold ate lunch with me.  We got my picture proofs.  He selected his and met Mrs. Morris.  I almost wept when he left but I couldn’t go to school that way!  Surely, hated to see him off without me! How is it that I love him now so much more than just last week, but I do! Charlotte missed school and we went to see her and stayed for the  “usual” coffee and home-made bread. Delicious!

aGeneralissimo Francisco Franco unified the Falangists and Carlists into a single party called the Falange Española Tradicionalista y de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional Sindicalista.

The Non-Intervention Committee agreed to establish patrols of Spain’s coasts. The patrols were authorized to determine the destination of vessels but not to carry out search and seizure operations. Germany and Italy were to monitor Republican ships while Britain and France would monitor the Nationalists. This scheme proved to be ineffective since the Germans could use ships flying the Panamanian or Liberian flags and unload their cargo in Portugal with the complicity of authorities there.

Mahatma Gandhi emerged from two years of silence to make a political speech. He cryptically said, “Show me the way and I am prepared to return to gaol. I am prepared to be hanged. If you do all I want you to do, the Viceroy will say: ‘I am wrong – I thought you people were terrorists, and if you like we Britishers will return by the next steamer.’ We would then say to Lord Linlithgow and the British: ‘India is big enough to hold you and more like you.’ That is my Swaraj.” Gandhi denied that his speech indicated that he was returning to public life.

My first day of teaching Spanish in Roswell and all’s well but that isn’t most important! Image result for roswell junior high 1936 Saw Elmo Wolfe at the P.O. and he invited me home for supper.  Linda Jo us teaching at East Grand Plains.  After supper Elmo and I went to Lenore’s to discuss some of the questions he’d brought out in his sermon the day before.  Wish I’d heard it!!  We do not need creed or ceremony – they are an escape measure for the real issue – Harmony!  We live fully, intelligently and freely in tune with God or Supreme Power.  That does away with organization as such.  Spoke of the new kind of “revival” worked in Artesia.  Discussed the miracles of Jesus vs. His temptations and answer to the people’s plea for a “sign” A person must be in complete harmony with God and his surroundings and know himself.  Then he can begin helping others.  There is no standard or judgement, Each does as he thinks best without relation to anything else! Preacher not necessarily closer to perfection than others.  Things in religion which cannot be explained and accounted for intelligently, must be done away with so as not to cloud the main issue.

It rained torrents and we made fudge at 10:30.  Hope Elmo doesn’t shift to  one side in his views because I think he has the solution for the church of today.
