Monday, May 30, 1927

Monday, May 30, 1927

The big race day. They had a bad accident this AM, the worst for years. I went to see Mama’s flowers this PM, took the three littlest ones. Dale and Dick sold their first race extras. Dale sold 26, Dick five. He is too timid to be a good salesman and Dale is too business like to fail.

(Must have been Memorial Day because that was always the traditional day to run the Indianapolis 500.)

  1. Memorial Day was always May 30 until it became a "Monday" holiday in the 1970's.
