Dear Diary,

Saturday Thurs., February 8                Weather unmarked.

Dear Diary,

Refer to April 22.

I know I shouldn’t cause its useless but I guess every girl likes someone whome she hasn’t a chance with. In my case its “Harvey Rootland.” he’s in my second period & is only one grade ahead of me is ‘bout 5’ 10” or 11” Black hair (or real dark brown) eyes–I don’t know…yet…! Hes real good looking and “my” type (at least I think so).

Editorial Note:

Here is a photograph of the dashing Harvey Rootland from his 1953 Van Nuys Senior High yearbook:

Dear Diary,

Today Harriet & I were walking through the hall & I was telling Harry I was disappointed because Robert didn’t come to school when Robert came down the stairs with big “Hello” & grins form me!! I said hello & walked on, Harry looked at me & said, “Lois! Your face is real red.” (I wonder if I really like him or if its just a silly infatuation???)

Bubie gave me a beautiful Mezuza for graduation.
