"Fun? Well Rather" The Diary of Virginia Clay McClure - part of the Sesquicentennial Stories Series



January 24, 1911

Went to town second hour and got a pair of suede shoes.  Read “The Choir Invisible” third hour.  It is the prettiest thing I have ever read.  The descriptions are perfectly beautiful – it seems like a poem in prose.

"Fun? Well Rather" The Diary of Virginia Clay McClure - part of the Sesquicentennial Stories Series



January 21, 1911

Jessie Mit, Shiny and I made fudge in “Shiny’s” room, and had an awfully good time.  I asked Mrs. Wallis for the milk and butter.  We ate candy until we couldn’t eat any more.  Then Jessie Mit spent the night with me.  Addie and Lillian were at Paris.

"Fun? Well Rather" The Diary of Virginia Clay McClure - part of the Sesquicentennial Stories Series




January 20, 1911




Went to the K.S.U vs. T.U. basketball game and saw our team defeated.  It was an awfully close game and I believe we would have won if Gaiser hadn’t gotten hurt.  The score was 23 to 18.  We went over to the Patterson contest and saw the awarding of the Crum Medal.  Mr. Uttley won the medal.  I met him after the contest.  He is a junior. Edna, Jessie Milton, and I talked until twelve o’ clock.  Had bananas for breakfast Saturday morning.

"Fun? Well Rather" The Diary of Virginia Clay McClure - part of the Sesquicentennial Stories Series






January 18, 1911

The Faculty team played the Varsity team, and were defeated 40 to 1.  Downing, Schnaitter, Spahr, Kelley, and “Dope” were the faculty team, and “Dope” got his collar bone broken. Downing made all the points for the faculty.  Gilbert took “Dope’s” place, and played in tennis garb.  Kelly was the funniest looking thing I ever saw.  I never laughed so much at anything as I did at the way the faculty chased around.

"Fun? Well Rather" The Diary of Virginia Clay McClure - part of the Sesquicentennial Stories Series





 January 16, 1911


Lillian, Addie, Bess, Marion, Lillie, Maria, Pauline, Susan, and I met to see “Madam Sherry” on general admission.  I had taken Edna’s coat away from her on the campus that afternoon, and Pauline wore it back to the Hall under her cloak.  Lula and Therese wanted her to let Therese have her coat at the gate, but of course she couldn’t.  We had a lot of fun about it, and I worried Edna about her coat.  Then after supper, about fifteen minutes before time to start, Lillian, Addie, and I decided to go, and get ready in a jiffy.  I couldn’t find my coat and I knew immediately that Edna had it.  She wouldn’t give it to me, so I borrowed Annie’s, and we went on.  We ran most of the way, cut across to Broadway.  Lillian and I got separated in the crowd and had to wait in line about half an hour.  When we finally got in we had to stand away up.  Annie seemed to be perfectly disgusted, but who cares? “Every Little Movement Has a Meaning all its Own.”  Addie spent the night with me, and we stayed awake a long time. Chocolate candy with “figs.”
