Diary of Marcial Lichauco

December 19, 1931

The weather is improving. Gloria was out on deck all day for the first time.  We took pictures, played ping-pong and deck tennis.

A round table conference was also held in Sen. O[smeña]’s suite with a dozen passengers who were supposed to be interested in the PI – mostly old hens and a few professors – all whom exhibited much ignorance about the subject.  Roxas did most of the talking.
