Last Friday on Decoration Day, the Hecker baseball players played with Waterloo, but Hecker lost for the first time this season. Sunday they played with Red Bud and Hecker lost again. That is the second time for Hecker. Papa and Rosalia came home right after dinner & then Rosalia & Bertille drove out there , we took all of our quilts along & washed them in that new motor washing machine. It sure did go nice. In the evening Papa, Rosalia, & Bertille drove out to Aunt Mary’s and Uncle Fred & when we got there they was just getting ready for the birthday. Today is Henry Birkner’s birthday.
