Papa & Rosalia are fixing fence along the road this morning.  I noticed this morning that Lester Gregson has a new truck to haul milk, now.  There was 2 ladies here & wanted something to eat, there machine broke & they & the family had nothing to eat, so we gave them a half loaf bread & sausage, they didn’t have no money, some gas station gave 2 gals. to go on they said.  I seen in the paper that Mrs. George Schilling got $50 for the turkey’s that was killed by stray dogs.  Bill Haudrich & Florence Buss where published last Sun. for the first time.  Hecker ball team where lucky last Sun. they both won, one at Valymer [sic] & the other with Hecker & Red Bud.  Papa drove up to Barthel’s to get the Whippet repaired.  Eggs are 14¢ now.  Alvera Braun is awful bad sick the way we heard, she is in bed all the time now, swollen so bad.
