Oct. 13, 1967
So good to hear from you this afternoon. We also had a card from Daddy as no doubt you did too (Roberta just called & she had had one from him too en route to Calif.) We had a letter from her this AM and it's all about her "Tests, tests, tests!" She says she has two tomorrow – that plus her cold are about to get her down. She got up at 4:30 this AM to study! Can you imagine that? Her roommate Faith has a horse & she wakes the whole room at 5 when she gets up to feed him. I don't think she's been getting enough sleep & she requires quite a bit. How about you?
John has been staying with Granddaddy this week. After delivering the papers (28 pages ea.) he went to a Treasure Hunt at Kevin's. Serena went to a Cadette Halloween Weiner Roast at Mary Jo Hughes. (They live where the David Allens used to live). That left just M.V. and I plus Granddaddy for supper. Wilma did invite us to join the picnic of the Treasure Hunt but we had invited Granddad, and I had to take Serena out to Hughes [It is now 10:50 & Serena isn't home yet; 4 1/2 hours of party?]
Evan Sugarbaker must be a real sweet boy, I'm sure he might be just as sweet with the last name Bullwinkle.
Mrs. Bernard said Shirley is struggling with Art. The four E.C. girls have been going to the Methodist Church or Wesley Foundation together.
WHIO-TV just gave the score on East Clinton vs Xenia-Woodrow Wilson game 8-38. No new news to report on our proposed trip [Serena arrived at 11:20]
John has enjoyed staying with Granddaddy – since Wednesday they have been going down to Polly's for breakfast – scrambled eggs, toast, orange juice & peaches. (Arlene is working there and Bobby Curtis & Ricky Cline have taken over the 3R Restaurant for their Antique Shop.
Do you and Gina run around together? Did you ever meet the Kline girl? or the other girl you's heard about?
Harriet Terrell wondered if you had met a boy named Elgin (in referring to a boy that had gone to Westtown).
Did I ever tell you Linda Eltzroth's roommate is from Alliance? She might know Jim. Mrs. Harner was saying that Elaine would consider Mich. State if it weren't for Bill. What did you think about her doing so well on the Merit Scholarship Tests? Kay Hottle & two others were pictured in Hillsboro paper for their "good work on that test" but that's all it said. Elaine is worried about taking the ACT (?) soon. No word on yearbooks. The grade pictures are to be taken Oct. 19, I think.
How is math? Did you get straightened out with Dr. Bousch? How old a man is he? Do you like Dr. Smith? do you have mail delivery on Sunday?
The Bernards said "Barry Goldwater's Arizona" – a TV special was very good – of course they were interested because of Doug and Janette. It was on Tuesday night during WSCS meeting so I missed it.
Mrs. Romney (?) was in Dayton today & interviewed very briefly but she is quite attractive.
Last night we saw Mike Williams receive rank of Eagle Scout – very impressive ceremony. John had made up his mind to stay with Granddaddy so didn't go. The church was filled.
Big day tomorrow with Daddy, Grandma & Rev. Perkins arriving. The Cub Scouts are to go to the Fairgrounds for a Scout-o-rama. It's really already Sat. so –––
All our best love,
