[Fancy circle around the date]
Dancing at Carroll to Laurence Welk. With Pete, k.m. at 12:00. Had a keen time: Pete, Don, Lloyd J., Squeak V., Ed Kult, Dick P. Home at 3:00. "He likes girls who live near by so he doesn't have to drive so much or far." "Good joke about college boy." Squeak says his heart goes "pitty-pat" everytime he sees me. He's going to try to beat Pete's time. Had a little too much. Slept till 9:30. Cleaned the house & did big ironing. Embroidered 'till 9:00 & then did dishes & went to bed. Surely stiff from exercising yesterday.
