Papa took the Whippet to Barthels, to get it fixed this morning, but he had no batteries. He went out to the woods this afternoon, & stopped at Henry’s & took his pigs along home. Ralph Rausch was here selling or taking orders for Sunday paper, 10ยข. Roosevelt picture & history will be in Sun. Henry Kammler is having a Armistice Dance tonite, Adm. 35, music by Billy Schmidt Orcestra [sic] from Belleville, but I don’t think it was a very big crowd present.
