Rosalia was at church this morning.  After dinner Rosalia & Mamie Eichenseer went up to the quilting in the priest’s house.  We found 6 eggs today.  There is going to be a dance at Charles Hepps.  Mildred invited us to come down this evening.  But we didn’t go.  Roads are too bad.  Elmer Lother was in County Jail for having 3 gallons of whiskey in his machine and also some empty jars.  He had a accident at Smithton with a sheriff from Champaign County driving the car.  Lother had to pay $200 and costs.  His friends got him out this afternoon.  Lother was intoxicated.
