1967 Dave's postcard to Cathy -Feb.28

Catherine's boyfriend, met at SIU in the summer of 1966, became known as "one-a-day" due to the frequency of correspondence arriving in P.O. Box 50.  Here is a sample.  [Dave will appear "in person" in May 1967 as a prom date.  Stay tuned!]
President Lyndon Johnson postcard -mailed 1967.

Feb. 28 [1967]
Dear Cathy,
Hi!  I saw this and thought of you.  I know how much you like him so I figured you'd want it to put this next to Goldwater.  Took NMSQT [National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test] today – ugh – was it hard – Didn't finish one section – Are we ahead of you in English – we studied the gods in 9th grade.  Dave.
