Friday, January 13, 1933

Ollie was over again this evening but had to go home because she had told her daughter she would.

*Olympic javelin and 80m sprint champion Babe Didrikson Zaharis makes her first professional basketball appearance, scoring 9 points for the Brooklyn Yankees in a 19-16 win over the Long Island Ducklings. An equally gifted golfer, she later helped found the Ladies Professional Golf Association in order to provide the then-handful of professional women golfers with a tournament circuit.

Her motto? "Loose your girdle and let'er fly!"
