Marcy S., age 16, Tennessee


Cloudy, rainy. No chapel. Saw Bunny before classes. Viola had a friend with her. Bunny right on hand. Funny. In history, Mrs. McCluen played some records for us. “Ave Maria,” “Lost Chord” (sung by Nelson Eddy), “Because” (Deanna Durbin), Schubert’s “Serenade,” and “Somewhere a Voice is Calling.” All very beautiful — nearly cried during last one. Then we got together in groups and worked on class activities for next week. Bunny sat in seat behind mine and put his arm on my coat. Ah! I wasn’t sitting there then, though. Didn’t have courage to ask him about Ruth Mary. Mary and I are going to dramatize a witch trial and torture. Finished Budget 22. Up to date now. In fifth study hall, Mary and I worked on trial and engaged Earl as the judge. After going home first after school, Helen and I went to Mary’s accompanied by a stray dog, whom we named “Bushy.”
