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.
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.
Another Jew’s holiday today and tomorrow! This is Columbus Day. After school Mary and I came to my house to sew. Mama was home, but she had no luck at the agencies.
