After breakfast I talked to Rita. She told me the loft in her cottage was being remodeled because a child would be in the cottage. This is probably John, not Kemo. I don’t know why Mary Lou Clancey is moving into our cottage.
I caught up a little on my journal.
In my adult class I gave spelling words, phonics and then told them of my effort to help improve the testing situation for seniors. To do this I want to learn how well my class members write and also whether they can discuss news items clearly. We then had class discussion on the movie“Z”. I wrote proper names on the board and asked all who could to write a pargraph on what “Z” shows. Christine Young [Cobb] came during the last part of the period. She had made an alphabetical list for the class roll.
Took a shower.
My Language Arts class discussed “Z” again. Attendance was low.
Read Identity of Yeats in the pavilion.
For dinner we had kidney beans fried fish and sweet potatoes.
Only Tropp and I attended teachers meeting. Tropp dealt with some students brought up for a misdemeanor.
A rally was scheduled but was cancelled.
I went home. Irra and Inez were there talking still about decorating the cottage. Irra objected to my towels because they are stained. I wash them myself by hand and the water is muddy so they don’t come out spotless. I don’t like to send them to the laundry because of the trouble and because they are sometimes lost. Irra wants me to get new towels from the warehouse.
I went back to the central area and announced a special meeting of my adult class, as Jim had asked me to have evening sessions for those who could not attend in the daytime. 14 people came. I gave suggestions about learning news events and talked about several countries in Africa.
When I changed back into my boots, I left behind my thongs I had been wearing. Missing them when I got home, I went back and looked for them, but couldn’t find them.
Read Identity of Yeats.
Went to bed at 11.00.
