75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 22, 1938


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 22, 1938
 
 This entry is the daily post on this blog from the diary of nineteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

Starting March 1, a weekly comment on these daily entries appear on the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog. Those weekly entries, on that blog, on each Friday of the week, will continue, with links to some of these daily entries.
 

Here is the daily entry for Friday, April 22:


Took Pete up to Smith's. Read the Enterprise up there. Got our Register up there for the first time. Home & mixed out my bread. Made plain rolls because I was out of butter. Went in to town a minute. Home at nite.

My comments: Must read the Register and the Enterprise. Main source of news, as well as the radio. Life was good.

Here is the front page of that Enterprise that she read. Amazing! What do you see of interest? I do have all eight pages, I'll share, over time…  ;-)

Middle column lists all the teachers in the school as contracts were renewed, etc.
Laura Anderson Wins First Place in Whitnell Seed Test is the next column to the right.
Music contest results, jury activity, political activity... lots of news on the front page.
Note the Proclamation in the lower left about the 'flying machines' and "Air Mail Week."

What fun! ;-)


Families are Forever!  ;-)
