75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 1, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 1, 1937

This entry is the daily post on this blog from the diary of eighteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

Since midway through 2010, a weekly update/comments blog entry began to appear on the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog. Those weekly entries, on that blog, on each Tuesday of the week, will continue, with links to these daily entries.

For 1937, for most days, there is both a short entry in a multi-year diary and a longer entry in a an appointment book like her diaries of past years. There is some indication the short entries were made later based on the longer entries. We still do not really know for sure.

Here is the short entry for Monday, March 1:
No short entry

Here is the long entry for Monday, March 1:

[Squiggly line around 'Monday, March 1' at top of page] Five months Pete & I have been going together, with very few quarrels, too. [between lines: "Tomorrow" & he smiled!]

A grand day. Typed most of morning. Bussy, Dad & I ate dinner in the back of the bank. Worked till 5:00. Rode part way with Lloyd Betts'. Walked rest of the way. Dad not home to supper. Listented to Fibber & Molly & Capt. Ricky on Lux. Real good. To bed early.

My comments: 'Cappy Ricks' was on Lux Radio Theater on March 1, 1937; see the link, right side, #7: you can download and listen to the 59:50 length show!

'Cappy Ricks' was a one-hour play on the radio; just as 'Captain Blood' was the week before. At the Cappy Ricks link, Cecil B. DeMille speaks the introduction of the play.
