Sliding the pole

 Week of Aug 8, 1909 [Claire is back in Kalamazoo] 

Saturday 14   In the afternoon May and Cornie & I went to a surprise luncheon on Cecille Hamm  we had a swell meal. In the evening we went through the fire department and May, Cecille & I went down the poll[sic] that the men go down. I got my white dress all verdigreece*  on our way home we three went to an ice cream parlor and laughed perfectly awful

 * Claire probably means to write the word Vertigris and is indicating that her dress was stained green from sliding down the fire pole.
