Sat 1930 Went to the show with Ann. As usual her whole conversation was boys. I wish I was old enough to have the boy friends. But I won't sneak as some do.

Sun 1931 Wore my new silk waste and tuck in skirt today. It looked good set off by my green beads. Recited at Young People League.

Mon 1932 First day of school. Gee I felt downhearted and disgusted, I don't know whats the matter.

Wed 1932 Well finals are over. Went to the Y for the Girl Reserve program. I was the announcer. Went swimming later. We (the Campers) Christened the pool. It's swell.
