Mon 1932. Soichi Yamada is certainly surprising to me. Who would think he would go to Maui for the track meet? In Kapaa school, he was so small... well, life is like that - it favors a few. Shoichi Kimura is becoming one of my intimate friends - I like his ways. Malcolm, the poor boy, is in the hospital with [[strikethrough]] a [[strikethrough]] [[? paper ripped]] my ideal.

Went to Hi-Y but had no game because of a benefit movie. We're going camping soon.
Then I went to Edith's to brush up on my drawing.

Thurs. 1932. I spent my afternoon beating a mattress for my new bed, planting flowers, and writing poems.  I revised the first & last sonnets to Edwin Markham. I don't know why H, Addie, and Eli are forever calling me genius . . . . Malcolm & I had a lengthy discussion today in 6th period on everything - and I've grown closer to him today.

19 The Junior Prom was quite swell! I went avec Alec & Laurence Kawaguchi, [[strikethrough]] who brought a [[/strikethrough]] who talked glowingly of himself & his exploits. Gosh, I enjoyed every bit of the dance with the usual girls. I felt confident in my "footwork" & hope to enjoy the long dances (not only tags) at the next dance.
