Stolen at Shirley’s Thursday May 22, 1924. Grace Lemely, Sandy Jennings, Pauline Wolfe, Hazel Simpson, Jame Keithley, Davona Young, Gilbert Hammon and I skipped school and went to Chillicothe in Grace’s Buick. We got awful dirty but we had a wonderful time. We went to Woolworth’s and stole every thing we could Pauline being able to get away with the most valuable article. It took her a long time to decided what color comb she wanted but finally took a black and white one.
Why should a young lady get “ill” riding in a coupe?? Was in the coupe??
April 30, 1925
Well we are almost at the “jumping off” place. After twelve years of work together in the close distance we can almost see our “sheepskins”.
Don’t dare ever forget 3rd ward and a little blond with long hair who was skinny and mean, she got over the skinniness but not the meanness. Our high school days and last but not least our many arguments over locker keys.
Remember one evening that we went to Chili??? Remember Dick the hero of our dime novel??? The day we tried to take down the fence at the football game?? And if you feel inclined to wonder, think and work, tell me why does light penetrate into seemingly dark places?
Not very valuable but very important place that u came from. Court House, Chillicothe, MO, May 22, 1924
Buick 6, we had a good time with the plug out and everything.
Gib got knocked in the head
The next Tues. Florence, Sandy, Grace and I went the result being a hit on the lip.
Surely you’ll never forget me because of our trip to “Chilli”. I’ll never forget it if I live to be a hundred years old, I was certainly afraid I had marred your beauty by throwing you into the top, but I’m sure glad it healed up so well. I also remember that night we sure had a keen time even though we were scared half to death on the way home.
Davina I have always known you as a good old scout and I want to remember you as such.
Wishing you all the success in the world I remain,
Don’t forget the time at the football game between Marysville and Trenton where we had to drive all over town, hunting for Hershey Bars and other kind of boxes and the hard luck you had with the fender on somebody’s car.
Then again will you ever forget the night when we went to Chillicothe and the wild ride home when we tried to imitate the ‘Big Dip’ at Electric Park. And the delicious chocolate sodas we had that night at Shirley’s. I can still taste them.
In years to come I shall always remember the girl who fixed me up such “keen” cokes at Fairs Drug Store.
Remember me as one of T.H.S.’ old students of 1925.
This is a terrible time to write. Assembly and all the kids yelling and carrying on. Study hall-
Well! That’s over:
Davina. I believe we first became friends over a mutual unhappiness. Big fact! I don’t know how many times we’ve spent in Fairs taking off, trying on, and changing shoes, but it must number up in the thousands.
Never forget the wild night ride to Chilli in the Hudson when you lost the money and nearly killed us in the bargain.
Well, old dear, our terms almost up and I must admit that I’m sorry and that we’ve sure had some hot times.
But never forget the craziest fool in old T.H.S.
