January 28, 1938 Friday

P.P.W.T.S. = peddled papers, went to school

P.P.W.T.S. In p.m. I went to Masonic Hall to hear Francesco Zecchino, violinist of symphony orchestra fame, 16 years of age in a recital. His accompanist used to accompany Fritz Kreisler. It was a very good recital. He got fine tone from his violin. In evening I went to picture “Alcatraz Island” at Latchis.
