Clean the dining room kitchen and washed my "Marse" dress and the blue tricolette best gave me - in naptha in the a.m. Went uptown to get some groceries and a scarf for Win to give to her mother for Mother's Day tomorrow. As I was buying the scarf Lizzie came in and spoiled the purchase, although I found out what her choice was and went back and got it later on and took it up to Win. Met Cal Stewart. Then I went to the rummage sale the Legion had yesterday and today, and got a beaded black blouse, a lampshade and a few other little things, $1.30 altogether. Jess would not have done it, but I see a good dress in it. While I was gone and Esther, Ede, Iva and her three children came. Ida to have her girls haircuts. Soon after I came Sade Dixon came and stayed until about 6, then Win wanted supper (she came at 5) and Eva Charles came before we had supper. Jess came while we were eating. Win was to go to the circus with Dick but she waited and waited and he did not come. So went to Wigles and telephone his mother and found he was sick and had telephoned Mrs. Wigley, but she had failed to let women know. It was nearly 9 so I went with her to the "Energire" and to the bus station to go home at 9:30. Poor child, she was so disappointed and mad. I then went to Jessie's for a book she got out of the library for me. "The Witness".
