75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - October 30, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
October 30, 1939 
 

This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK SMITH, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.


Here is the daily entry for Monday, October 30:

Up late. Pete up home helping pick. I washed. Really cold hanging out close (sic). Didn't get dishes done until 6:00. Pete home 6:30. Chored had fresh liver for supper. Pete chored, we listened to "The Old Maid" on Lux Theater. To bed early.

My comments:

Listen, yourself, to the broadcast of "The Old Maid" on Lux Theater, here, from Oct 30, 1939:
