Editor's Note: So Luella has indeed started at the high school in answer to my question a few weeks back. That is why she can ride home with Allen. And, two years before he is engaged to Alice Warn he is at her family's social having a fine time. No mention of any attraction yet--I wonder if Allen gave her a second thought at this point.
What sort of disappoints me in all these entries, and I think I've mentioned this already, but while I get a little idea of Andrew Warn, Alice's mom Hattie NEVER gets mentioned. I have no idea whatsoever what she was like. Was she kind, was she meek, was she a battle ax? What was she like? She raised lovely daughters so she had to have been fairly nice, no?
Also, if not mentioned before, I think Littlefield's is the farm of Eugene and Ena Littlefield. I wonder if Frank didn't work for them for a time.
