Transcription || PDF from 89-4286-C1-A3-37-38

Set alarm for 5.15, when I got up so that I could press clothes for the week,  Have been wearing the outfit which Claire gave me.  Most of them are suitable.

Marquita came in saying she was sick all night. May have the flu.  She intended to go home but stayed to make sure revisions on MagCard work she did Friday and did not go until well after lunch.  She had a great deal of trouble because of unfamiliarity with the MagCard.

Shortly after the offices opened, Dor was informed by Mr. Shuman’s secretary, that several messages were going to be transmitted from Ann Arbor in conjunction with a suit by Consumer’s Power lawyers were meeting here. Dor spent most of the day talking with Marquita and I revised some of them on the computer, then copies had to be xeroxed for the lawyers meeting with Phil Becnel and I worked on the xerox machine, which at one point broke down.  Nora put it in working order.

Bechtel’s mail room delivered my registered letter from Eddie [sister] with my ticket.  I had had it transferred from my “loc pro” as I couldn’t get in there to pick it up.

I ate my lunch hurriedly at my old desk.  Then took the bus to Macy’s.  Bought 2 pair of good panty hose for my trip home.

In the afternoon after Marquita left I had to make a small change on one of the pages Marquita had done on a MagCard but it caused me a good deal of trouble because of the way she had ended it.

At home I exercised.

Prepared and ate dinner and washed dishes.  I was late in getting the newspapers.

I made journal corrections, finishing the 16 to 30 September entries.

I read Roszak Where the Wasteland Ends for an hour.

Went to bed at 1.30.
