Maybe she’s throwing things and his world stopped spinning.

There are quite a few days that go by without a letter. But nothing is going to stop the fact that summer is approaching and Babu just can’t seem to keep the boys at bay.

Jakey had a perfect announcement of his solo flight in the paper tonight.  John Bartula came up tonight and asked me to play tennis Saturday.  Got a letter from Peach asking me to come down at the end of the month.  Played the piano at choir rehearsal again.  Spike drove me home.  He also asked me to go to the formal with him.  I refused.  I may be in Alabama; but I may ask J.L.

This is exciting, she may go to see Jake in Tuscaloosa? Oh, I hope she does. Seems Jakey may loose his grip on her otherwise!
