Dear Diary,

Tests today. Got A in Science, D in Spanish. Went out with Bob Ulis to show. Tried to hold my hand. Told him no. Saw Frogmen was excellent. Got home 12:40.

Editorial Note:

The Frogmen was an unremarkable 1951 adventure flick directed by Lloyd Bacon, and starred Richard Widmark, Dana Andrews, and Gary Merrill. None of those names ring a bell? Well, that’s not surprising since the film was tagged as “the sensational story of Uncle Sam’s Underwater Commandos! “ yet it failed to gain any historical traction. That said, they fight like men from another world, but they’ve got Texas, Brooklyn and Missouri written all over their hearts; what’s not to like! Check out the chuckle-worthy trailer below.

Dear Diary,

First day of summer school. I like my classes have Mr. Colburn – Science – 704, Miss Medina – Spanish –561. Bob didn’t act very nice to me. When I went into the auditorium Bob saw me and turned around quick so I wouldn’t see him. Later in the day I was walking up the 700 Building stairs & Bob was walking down. I smiled & said hello! He looked the other way muttered something & ran off. And after all that stuff he told me. When I got home I cryed my eyes out.

Dear Diary,

We all went to Aunt Betty & I slept over. We saw Beauty & the Beast & Age of Innocence.

Mrs. Suggarman phoned today and told me I was chosed as a delegate for Asilomar! She told me they chose me because I had given so much to the club since I joined (4 months) & that they wanted the future leaders to go, so that they could bring back from camp what ever they got from it & that the age limit is 16 but they would lie for me & I was the only new comer to go & a bunch of other things which made me feel very wonderful. The others going are: Marian Holman, Vicky Rubell, Tom Beattes, Dick Holer, Ritchy Gaylor, me. Paying for selfs: Jaime Grey, Nancy Gaylor
