75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 31, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 31, 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.

Here is the short entry for Wednesday, March 31:

Windy. Ripped suit all morning. typed all pm. Walked home. Ate & did dishes. Washed out under wear. "This Years Kisses" first again. Dad went to the Musicale at school house.

Here is the long entry for Wednesday, March 31:

Real nice out but a little windy. Ripped suit all morning & part of the afternoon. Finally finished it. Typed most of pm. on Muensterman estate. Mailed letters & up at Jean's a little bit. Walked home at nite. Ate & did dishes. Washed socks & under clothes & listened to New Campbell program. Fred Allen & Lucky Strike. "This Years Kisses" again. Dad at Musical program at school.

My comments: Campbell sponsored Fred Allen, off and on:

1936 Campbell's Soup Presents George Burns and Gracie Allen1937 George Burns and Gracie Allen [for Grape Nuts]

Later, Campbell sponsored the Mercury Theater.

Fred Allen went with Hormel… Radio advertising was trying to find itself.  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
