Marcy S., age 16, Tennessee

Bright, beautiful, very cold. Went to Sunday School and Church for first time this year. A substitute minister delivered the sermon — most of which was addressed to the ceiling. He is nice, though. Dined in bedroom, then read paper and talked. Can hardly wait to see “The Letter.” Helen came and went to Dad’s office with me to type. Then Christian Education. Miss D. and Helen had a disagreement. I asked Miss D. why she thought God made man and she said it was to glorify God and serve Him forever. Helen thinks maybe He did it just to amuse Himself. Goodness! I hope that isn’t being sacrilegious! Sometimes I feel the same way. George ate with us at night. Reminisced and nearly died laughing. Told jokes. While doing dished George imitated different people till I thought I’d die!
