I opened the Canteen at 7 A. M. and 

closed it at ten P. M. We had one

grand time at the Canteen this

morning. Marnie, Ida, Louise, Helene

& I. Some soldiers -- who seemed

like boys we had always

had about a two hours wait and 

made themselves at home. We

called each other by first names

etc. They were college boys -- so it

seemed almost like a "U" party.

One of them gave me a beautiful

aviator pin. Had lots of fun down

there tonight. Our girls were a 

jolly bunch. John & Marnie were

here for supper. Letter from Mrs. J.

Cleaned house all morning. Have

een on the go constantly it

seems to me and up late at night.

We had a big box come by express

from Vantine's in New York this

afternoon. All kinds of wooden

Japanese toys -- souvenirs for our

Xmas breakfast. They are animals. 

We expect to have lots of fun with 

them. Mother, Mary & I went

up town about 4:30 and didn't come

back until eight. Ate our supper

at the Cafeteria -- did some

Xmas shopping. It is lots of fun

getting ready for Xmas.
