Monday Feb 18

[no entry today]


This is the first day without an entry in Papa's diary. Perhaps is was just an ordinary day in which Papa visited his sisters on the way home from work and spent the evening by himself.

Temperatures in New York were in the low to mid 30's most of the day with no precipitation. Time Magazine's cover featured Eleutherios Venizelos, the outgoing Premier of Greece, though much of the issue focused on Woodrow Wilson's funeral and legacy. The Teapot Dome Scandal shows up in Time and The New York Times, but is not yet in full flower. In sports, the Westminster Dog Show reintroduced the Best In Show award after the previous year's elimination of it proved unpopular; a Sealyham Terrier took the big prize.

Papa must have been pleased to read an article in the Times about non-Zionist Jewish leaders agreeing to invest in Palestine, another sign of American Jewish sentiment shifting toward unified support of a Jewish homeland. Maybe he read about it before he went to bed, or maybe he spent the night talking about it with friends.
