Exams are over – Went to see Pete and Velma and get the waffle iron.  Pete is looking so much better!  We went to see “One in a Million” with the Olympic champion Sonja Henie.  She skates and dances One in a Million Posterbeautifully.   Lorene and I stayed to see it twice. I could easily go again! A letter from Carsey says he will be here the week-end of the 29th but he cant make it here this week-end to see the picture – Nevertheless I’ve had a silly feeling ever since the letter came that he would be here. Even though he has an appointment with some truckers on Saturday!  How foolish of me – and my mind tells me he won’t be here! Instead he called me about 8 and said he’d be over about noon tomorrow!!!

USS Kane (DD-235)

The destroyer USS Kane which was in Spanish waters assisting in the evacuation of American nationals, was attacked by an unidentified aircraft. A total of six bombs were dropped which landed near the ship but did no damage, and the Kanereplied with anti-aircraft fire in the direction of the plane. The United States sent protests to both sides in the civil war. The U.S. State Department said the altercation was probably a case of mistaken identity, even though the Kane was clearly flying the American flag.
