Fence - go to M.E. church for cafeteria dinner - very good. Rush home for bath. Get ready for A.B. dance. Marcella comes home and bathes. Rush back to church for ice cream with Adams. Rush home and Harold and Litsey come. Rush to dance so as to be there at 9. Splendid times. Harold and I come home at 12:30. Stay up till M. Arrives so as to talk things over.

Flo's Diary:

Awakened by Mrs. Heacock at 10:30 but sleep till 12:30. Up and take bath. Harold comes scramble to get in clothes. Eat breakfast. Do work while Marcella and Green walk. Write letters and mail them. Marcella and I go to C.E. and church. Hear talk by A.R. Heilig. A long lonesome day - no walk or nothing. Boys gone a week. Splendid weather for them.

A.R. Heilig, is probably Albert R. Heilig, an attorney who worked in private practice as well as with Judge Wickersham as Clerk of the Court. He was also a UAF Board of Regent (1917-1921).
