Friday, March 3, 1933

Went swimming. I passed the beginning test. Had swell assembly given by the Latin Department. Mother made hash for supper.

On March 3, 1933, Washington Governer
Clarence Martin (1887-1955) closes all banks in
Washington state for a "bank holiday" after the
banking system collapses. The banks remain closed,
or open under great restrictions, until March 13, 1933.
