Lily came around today–first time. She’s moving Saturday. I went to the library alone. Mama didn’t get her raise and was awfully disappointed. Started “Robin Hollow.” Advertisements

Finished panties and started slip in sewing. Mary and I practiced waltz, fox trot, and 1 step after school at her house. Mama curled my hair, but I combed it most out.

Albert was absent this morning and I had to dance with David Kaufman. Danced at Mary’s after school. Mama bought me a pair of one piece pajamas. Didn’t give civics report yet.

I didn’t have to give my Civics topic today. I have to give a report on David Copperfield. Read 2 chapters aloud at home tonight. Mama was sent to two jobs. Danced at Mary’s house.

Mama was interviewed today. I didn’t get up till she got back (11:30). We walked down to the Hutchins School. Headed down after dinner. She got mad at me. I washed and wiped dishes.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1933

Went to Mary’s after school. Mama got a call from General Motors. We went to the Rosedale and saw “The Stranger’s Return” and “Heroes for Sale.” Swell, but sad endings.
