…ruling planet.  You were born in the eighth house of the zodiac which is the house of (Wiels?) and Legacies.  Therefore you may expect a legacy sometime during your life.

“Your chart shows you to be aggressive, determined and energetic.  You have an active mind and are thoughtful, optimistic, and fearless (eh now!!!)  These are some of your inherent good qualities.  However, you may also have some faults that can develop into bad habits.  There are times when you may become pessimistic, vindictive, destructive, and suspicious.  You may delight in making sarcastic remarks (how true!!!) Take inventory of…

…yourself and realize how much happier and successful you could be if you would learn to develop the more positive and finer tendencies in your nature and eliminate those that are undesirable and may have caused you considerable unhappiness and embarrassment from time to time.

“According to the Science of Astrology, your Lucky day is Tuesday, your luck colors are blue and green (my bedroom is green and rose). your luck flowers are the carnation and the chrysanthemum (I love the latter); your lucky jewels are the opal and topaz (Mother gave me a topaz (my birthstone) for graduation from Stitt last year, June 1941.  I am wearing it now.  I also had a “roof”…

 Humphrey Bogart and Mary Astor had the leads and were followed closely by Peter Lorre & Elisha Cook, Jr. (The Latter, a newcomer)  The “Falcon” was marvelous.  I give it AAA1/2.  Shortly before I saw the “Falcon”, Ruthie and I went to the RKO Hamilton (Con. 145 & Broadway-City). where “Suspicion” with Joan (Rebecca) Fountain and Cary (Penny Senenade) Grant. Nigel (Dr. Watson) Bruce gave them some competition.  The picture was fine.  I give it also AAA1/2.

Yesterday Ruthie treated me to the Roxy and dinner afterwards. I don’t know when I’ve had such a swell time.  In the lobby we saw the new 3 dimension photo’s  Gee They’re swell.  The picture was “I wake Up Screaming.”  It was one of the best I’ve seen in a long time.  Full of mystery, suspense,…

…The stars were:
Betty Grable-ah legs!!!
Victor Mature-Fine Phisique
Carole Landis-Up and coming
There is a new Hollywood star named Laird Cugar who played the insane detective.  He was thrilling.  So was Elisha Cook Jr. (who ended up to be the murderer).  This was my “speed” picture.  It was tense and exciting without being exaggerated and unreal.  The acting was superb and so was Ruthie for taking me.

Last Thursday, I got 9 plus in my (Mr. Martyn, Isham) oral topic.  Mr. Sidafsky informed me that my Geometry average is 90.  Next term when I am in 4th I shall be in the “Alpha” Math Class. That’s the smartest Math Class.  I hope to rate a scholarship certificate…

…next term.

Getting back to movies my favorites are now:
Bette Davis
Ida Lupino               }Women
Ginger Ragens

Cary Grant                                   }The Big Six
Errol Flynn
Clark Gable             }Men

In my estimation these are the greatest actors and actresses in Hollywood.  Let’s see how my opinion changes in the future. (My opinion so often changes!!!)

Thousands of movie fans in the U.S, and other countries of the world were shocked and then deeply moved to hear that Carole Lombard was dead!!!
