"Fun? Well Rather" The Diary of Virginia Clay McClure - part of the Sesquicentennial Stories Series

 April 13, 1911

Went to Dr. Frank Dixon’s lecture, by grace of “Shiny”.  Received at the door the accompanying small card which was very puzzling to us all, until Prof. Spahr said write thereon the name of the lecturer you thought best.  I’ve heard three, and Dr. Dixon is my choice.  However, I could not rate “Corsets”, “Socialism.” Jessie Mit and I had to keep on our coats.  I read Latin at six o’clock the next morning.

Apr. 13th. Wrote “Higher Education for M.S.C.I Graduates,” for the M.S.C.I. Annual.  Also, sent “Hamlet” and two of Charlie Blevins poems.
