Alyce Claire has gone to Tatum.  Left for a 7 o’clock bus.  I plan a lot for today but hardly can hope to get everything accomplished.  Have found out that the blond fellow that eats at Mrs. Grady’s once in a while is a Mr. Scott who works for the the Humble Oil Company.  It would be the Humble Oil Company representative that I get interested in – Went to the luncheon given for the judges, teachers & “interested” in the Music Festival.  Saw Mrs. O’Malley, Elizabeth Gant and Dr. Ballenger again.  Sat next to lee Hendricks and got the first real visit with him I’ve ever had. Very nice. All afternoon was spent with Mrs. Martens.   Went to her home for supper – Charlotte St. John came over while we were still at the table and we discussed Paul Horgan and his new book!

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