Last Week was Quite Thrilling

Sun. Feb 23rd 1935                                                                                                                                                                            Last night Marion, Morley, Windy & I popped popcorn & ate ice cream & fought.  Absolutely through with Windy for good.  David_Copperfield_(1935_film)_posterFriday after school Betty & I went down to see “David Copperfield”. Met Margee down there.  The picture was wonderful.  All the characters just seemed to fit into the book.  After the show about 7:30 I went over to St. Paul’s church to a Ranger thing. I was supposed to be a little kid in a skit showing how you should not act in a sick room. We’d only had one practice & I hadn’t been there so I had to make it all out of my head.  If I hadn’t had to go to the Ranger thing I could have played bridge over at Dance’s.  Jack M. asked Marion to get me.

Saturday March 2                                                                                                                                                                   Last week was quite thrilling. Wednesday night Helen & I went down to a meeting of the Ranger Dramatic Society. Thursday night A.Y.P.A. had a social & I had a grand time. One boy seemed to take an awful interest in me. Walked home with me. I think his first name is Albert. Grace was at A.Y. The_Little_MinisterFriday night Marion & I saw the Little Minister -very good.

Tuesday March 5                                                                                                                                                            Saturday night Marion & I were supposed to play bridge with Bruce & Jack. However Bruce was down cellar with Jim & we couldn’t get him to come up. So it finally ended up with us playing with Mr. & Mrs. Dance. Jack had to go home. Sunday morning I went to church & heard the new minister – very good sermon. Sunday afternoon I went down to the Western Nurse’s Residence to see Mary Smith. to-day there was an amature (sic) night in the aud. & we went in after our 8th period.

Sunday March 10                                                                                                                                                                 This morning Marg B. & I went to St. Martins. Its just like a Catholic Church down there. Saw Albert & Art.  Last night Marion & I went to the bazaare (sic). Jack gave us tickets to get into everything but by the time we found the places everything was over. Friday night Marion, Bruce, Jack & I played bridge. Thursday night the A.Y. went out to the Good Year tire plant. Grace made a play for Art but Art gave me a small compliment. (hair episode). I went out with Albert. Coming home it was only 10:30 & he was bound he was going to take me someplace. However I wet-blanketed all the places he suggested & we finally ended up by going for a drive out to Weston. Wednesday night I went to the Ranger Dramatic club & got a very minor part. I’m supposed to be young & romantic. He didn’t even give me a chance at any of the other parts because I’m too small. He wants somebody who looks about 21.

Sunday March 17                                                                                                                                                               Easter exams have been posted. Thursday night I went to A.Y. Art was there but Albert wasn’t. Friday night we had a bridge for the Huron Old Boys. -58 people –4 tables of young people in the sitting room. Met Phyllis & she’s quite nice. Kay Campbell -swell. June McGrath – terrible. Saturday aft I went to a Ranger’s tea accompanied by Elizabeth. Saturday night Jack & Marion & I played bridge. Bruce wouldn’t play.
