[[Merica?]] went home to dinner with us yesterday. Got another letter from Floyd. Dad and Ruth and I played [[Fleuch?]] last night. Wrote a letter to Floyd but tore it up. Sure had a good time Sunday. We went to big hill that is Wilma, Martha, Ruth and I. Took a lot of pictures and stuff to eat. Got stuck in a wheat field. Got home at 630.

All of the seniors are wearing their hair down their back. Sure looks funny and every girl in school has a ribbon on her hair. Went to the beau supper at the church Tuesday night, that is Ruth, Wilma and I. Lots of the kids were there. Got my grade card in  History got G-. 

I sure want a letter this noon. This is fourth period now. I ought to be getting Geometry or French or History or English. But such is life.
