Edith Roller – August 12, 1976 – Thursday

Didn’t get  until 6.30.  Had only an orange for breakfast. Bought a doughnut which I ate at the office.

Dor has worked until 7.30 last night on the Consumers Power litigation.  She transmitted material to and from Ann Arbor all day and had Marie for several hours on machine, as Marquita and I are not expert enough to do this type of work.

I mentioned separately Marquita and to Dor the idea of having before I leave on my vacation, an office conference.  So that each of us could state calmly what we liked and what we didn’t like.  Dor had a strong negative reaction, still taking an attitude of firmness. “She’s got to learn to adapt to the business world.”  She revealed that she thought my influence in the working relationship had been detrimental and she was looking forward to dealing with Marquita alone and “getting her straightened out” while I am on vacation.  She is showing signs of great insecurity.

I continued working on resolutions from Maggie and typed on MagCard the final version of the Sonatrach office documents.  Philippe Lamy, our French attorney, corrected it for me and Maggie accepted his changes.

Marquita’s sister and brother-in-law are visiting her and have been doing some sight-seeing.  She was to meet them for lunch today but they were delayed on BART so she didn’t get any lunch.

I ate my lunch at my desk and went to the bank.  Deposited 2 checks as I was paid for my vacation work in advance, and got cash.

The weather has been drizzly for the past few days.

Got home at 5.30.


Took my washing to the laundromat in addition to underwear, I washed all my dresses, blouses and skirts which were dirty.  I am going to decide whether to keep my old clothes or give them to the Temple.  Did some sorting.

I did personal and household chores.  I decided to wash my hair tomorrow.

Prepared and ate dinner and washed dishes.

Took a bath.

Called Lor [her friend at SF State].  She had taken the day off to get ready for her trip to Eugene.  She is leaving with Sacton, Manning and Dorothy, tomorrow at 6.00. Ryn will get her PhD degree at the ceremonies to be held on Saturday.  Neither Beth nor Carol will be able to attend.  Bill de la Fuente is going to fly up.  I told Lor about my plans for reunion with my sisters.  Lor said Patty and Mike are going to have a meeting in November.

Read Roszak for a while.

Went to bed at 1.30.
