Thursday February 15th 1934 . A belated valentine arrived to-day from Jim. But he still owes me a letter. Well I gave my oral at last. all the kids said I wouldn’t be there to-day but I fooled them. Outside of the fact that I draped myself over the front desk and fooled with the ink well the whole time & hardly looked at the class at all. I got through it not too badly. Miss Stock got mad because I was talking and wouldn’t play the gramophone & made us work instead. Gosh what am I coming to? Nana and I went down to the Royal York to see the Cambell (sic) Soup broadcast & did we have a time getting there. (ask Nana for particulars) It sure is a snooty place down there. I guess I’d better struggle away with algebra now. I actually got a question right in school to-day.
Friday February 16 . Algebra test to-day! (I think I’d better leave out particulars) Betty was supposed to give her oral but absent. Give the kids something to talk about besides me. Her second time too. I’m reading a smart book “Christopher & Columbus” very amusing. Also have just finished reading “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austin. Am trying to improve my reading. I mean to read better books. Miss McGonigall read my book review on “Wuthering Heights” and said it was excellent. I seem to be coming up in the world.
Monday Feb.19. . Weekend terribly dry but I got a lot of homework done. Got algebra test back to-day. I got 6 out of 30. Well well! I went down and worked it out on his board after school & I did pretty well too. Baldwin got 8. Imagine him beating me. That’s what hurts.
Sunday Feb 25. . Friday night Morley myself Nora & Mother went up to Moon’s. (in Seaforth) It was Mr. Moon’s idea to form a Huron Old Boy’s Young People Society but Mr. Moon went too far so there was a row about it and it was called off till next fall. We expected when we went to Moon’s that it would be just a party to get acquainted but instead of that he sent all the old people out into the kitchen and started organizing a club which he said wouldn’t have anything to do with the Huron Old Boys just at present but later on they would come to us with open arms. Yeah I see them. Anyway I had a swell time. There were about 25 there. I was very much taken with Kay Campbell. Also I liked Margaret Pringle & Max and Charlie Bennett (Do I like doughnuts dunked? Ask him.) Jack Moon, personally is a pain in the neck. I went to church this morning with Nana.
