Back is much better today. Went to the Doc & he said no bones broken or out of place. Called it a muscle spasm. Attended camera instruction & took sun bath at same time. After dinner we went over to the park to practice ball. I played a little & pitched some. Back OK might pitch tomorrow. Went to town with Jusser & Zelinski & got free tickets to the Ice Capades of 43. It was a swell show & lasted 3 hours. Was in bed at 12:30 tired but happy.
