At this point the 1942 diary is the only one of Frye’s diaries that continues past the first week of September.
 Howard Smith has a book out: “Last Train From Berlin.” Howard was a very likeable boy, frank and open-minded in the best American way, somewhat naive, & a little sentimental, as Americans are. He is one of those who are so unwilling to be cynical that they tend to lack humor. I remember his showing me some Russian kopecks with “Workers of the World Unite” on them and saying: “Now have the Russians forgotten the world revolution?” I said something about the profound Christianity indicated by the “In God We Trust” on American coins and he laughed, though somewhat unwillingly.
[Bob Denham’s note, page 684, CW vol. 8: “Smith, who later became a well-known CBS commentator, was a Rhodes Scholar at Merton College, during the time NF studied there. NF is apparently remembering this incident from their student days.”]
