Warmer and sunnier but getting "smoky" in evening. Tried all day to push the gallows business but with very little result. I never saw a job drag so. Finally came home rather tired and mad. There is a rumor that Mastrin has quit. Why no one knows. In evening watched MPs beat Am. Ind. Transport. Very hot game. Woodford AIT is a big league pitcher and was unhittable for six innings. Honak (MP) blew up in the 5th but steadied and touched of a battering rally that won the game. Quite late the AIT put in a southpaw who was murdered.
