75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 3, 1938

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 3, 1938

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

From March 1 thru April 29, I posted every day, to cover the marriage and the early married life of Pete and Eileen (Kinnick) Smith, but decided to 'take a breather.'  Posts will be added, from time to time, as items of particular interest appear.

Resuming with Dec 1, 1938:

Here is the daily entry for Saturday, Dec 3:

Didn't feel very good in the morning. Pete worked around here. Ate dinner. Went up home. Pete bro't the tractor down. I drove the car home. Did dishes, separator, scrubbed separator floor. Listened to Notre Dame-Southern Cal. Pete sawing wood. Listened to end of game and then chores. 13-0. S.C. Ate, and went to bed early.

My comments: From wikipedia:
1938 - USC 13, Notre Dame 0
Played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Notre Dame was undefeated and ranked #1 in the nation. USC was ranked 8th with a 7-2 record. Notre Dame fell to a #5 ranking the following week, but were still named national champions by the Dickinson System. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notre_Dame%E2%80%93USC_football_rivalry
Southern California Trojans went on to win the Pacific Coast Conference Championship as well as the Rose Bowl Champitionship (over Duke, 7-3) under Coach Howard Jones.
