75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 3, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 3, 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 Wednesday, March 3:

No short entry

Here is the long entry for Wednesday, March 3:

Cloudy day but nice & warm. Typed "Quit Claim & Deed for Slim Timmons. Typed for long while after dinner, too. Got Shorthand Lesson ready to send in. Went up to school house about 3:30. Saw Huff about taking a Speed Test. Bussy & I walked home all the way. Raining & warm. Bussy got 12 A's. All A's in everything. Made ice cream. Washed dishes & separator. Listened to Fred Allen & Hit Parade "Goodnite My Love was first." (sic)

My comments: This song was #1 - again!

Was Huff the principal or business education teacher? She knows she is approaching the end of her Shorthand correspondence course, and needs an independent Speed Test.

Congratulations to Buzzy on the grades. Keep up the good work. He is actually in Third Grade. He is eight and a half years old…  ;-)

In case you missed it last Wednesday, here is my little separator:

Families are Forever!  ;-)
