am going to move to YMCA in the morning. We get paid $4.00 per day
beginning Aug 1st for our expenses and we can spend it as we please just
so we act in a dignified manner and put up at a respectable place.
I get a nice room there for $4.50 per week. I forgot to tell you I
chose a pair of $2.00 tennis shoes as the sum of my prizes won at
Ravinia and that Otto Wohlfaurt was my partner who ran the other
"leg and a half" in 3 legged race.

Sat. for US Senator. Quite a bit of excitement. Parade went by a
little while ago. Hear you have a house that's fine.
