Went to a tea at Wanda Howard’s for Ethelyn. Saw Mickey B. and Josephine Albow. Mickey bought me home. Went to see “One Rainy Afternoon” with Frances Lederer – absurd but cute. Yesterday we walked to 5 points and several blocks on the way back. Visited maternity ward of Masonic while in Five Points. Not such a long walk!

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.
