Thursday - March 27.

Well, here goes for book III. It has been several days since I have written as I couldn't find a composition book I wanted. But I finally took this. I forgot did I mention in Book II that Floyd was home. He & Fay have been driving around all day.

The Minstrel was sure good last nite. Dad, Mama, Ruth & I went.

There was a test in Zoöl today today [[sic]] & it sure was stiff. Didn't get any notes day from Clem as I didn't have any thing to say and evidently he didn't either. Went down town and got a lot of things for mama in the 1 cent sale. 

We are going to the Jeff again
