Marcy S., age 16, Tennessee


Rainy, cool. Long-winded speaker in chapel. Preacher. Practiced music in gym in English. Fun in history. Had to memorize and write Covenant of League of Nations. Test in typing. Made 94. Gave back six cents to each book club host. After school I went home and practiced one hour. Went so fast. At night Mom, Dad, and I went to the Webbo and saw Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard in the “The Great Dictator.” Nearly died laughing, although it wasn’t as funny as “Modern Times.” Very good at last. Talked with Mary a bit. She looked so tired. Raining when we went in and came out. Nice.
