MAY 17
Tues. 1932  Mrs. Anderson congratulated me for winning the [[?]] & the St. Nick silver badge. She still thinks "A Million Things" isn't good enough.

It might be a compliment to us actors - but I'd rather not act than have bouquets - (fond memories) Haruto, W, & I (I'll call this bunch X3 from now on) went to Hi- Y, then parked the car in the moonlite at Waipouli beach.  oh, the moon was so white. We sang half-forgotten old songs - sad memories - haunting tunes oh - the experience was to divine to be true.  Mais, non filles!
