Hot again today. I went to work this morning and came home about three o’clock and carried Leone to the Doctor. I went to a meeting of the Red Cross Executive Committee. Alford Marchant present chairman resigned, and I was elected to take his place.
Four more Mathews men are reported lost in the sinking of a ship near Cuba. Dewey Hodges, brother of Leslie Hodges, recently reported lost, William Hammond, Mel Respess whose ship was recently sank and who was a passenger on this ship returning home, Genious Hudgins who leaves a wife and little girl. Of course the last comes closest to us for he lived near us and we thought a great deal of him and his wife (Salome Ward) and their little girl Vicki.

My folks went Newport News today and were so late getting home that I did not get to the Tabernacle.

I took Carole Anne to Mama’s to spend the day. I came home around one thirty to take Leone to the Doctor. He was out on a confinement case and we had to wait until about four for him He gave Leone a rather thorough examination. Blood pressure a little low- blood test showed anemic condition slightly better.
I went to the Tabernacle. The crowd was fairly large. A storm came up and it started raining just before we left.
The Doctor changed the medicine on Leone today- that is the kind he gives with the needle. The cost is $4.65 for ten “shots”. He agreed to reduce his charge to $7.00 for the necessary ten visits instead of the $1.00 per visit.

We had a very small crowd at Sunday School this morning. Carole Anne and I went to Mama’s for dinner. I took her there before I went to the Tabernacle. There was a large crowd at the Tabernacle tonight- I suppose about eight hundred people.
