January 29, 1938 Saturday
P.P. Collected. Practiced horn. Went to movies in p.m. with Ernie. Saw the Braddock-Farr fight pictures. Loafed. Thought about what I want to have for a career and chose, at last, to aim at teaching and specializing on some subject. By the way – got my report card. Semester marks were as follows – 92, 93, 94, 96, and 90 and 90 in band and orchestra, which doesn't count so much (it is a good mark).
January 30, 1938 Sunday
Slept late. Went to S.S. and church. The orchestra didn't play this morning due to lack of nerve. Studied. Went to C.E. meeting.
