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

April 12-14, 1911

Apr. 12th.  No “education” class.

Apr. 13th. Skipped same.

Apr. 14th.  No “Education” Class.  Prof. Noe is on a “tare” and is very funny in English. Jessie Mit and I get our tickets reserved for “Brown of Harvard.”  Mrs. Humphrey calls for us to go to Miss Barbee’s and we wait for Edna who has had the dire misfortune to lose her stockings.  Race. wind. the Nicholasville car “Prohibition crowd going to Nicholasville to celebrate?”  Beautiful home.  Met Laura Clay, Mrs. Barbee, and Lena Barbee, mother and sister of “Dick” Barbee of football fame at State.  Untangled a wonderful web of string and found a big chocolate cross at the end thereof.  Very eventful and pleasant evening.  Hannah Jochum saved my life in French class Friday by feeding me Hershey’s Nut.  I hadn’t had any breakfast.
