Diary of William P. Oliver

16 May 1942

Stomach upset today. Hope it is not the start of something. Rumors also upset with orders to repair buildings for rainy season. Profiteering checked a little — Cigarettes down to ₱1 jar pk & chow profits limited to 100% instead of prices like ₱15 for a 50 Centavo bar of Candy. Saw a can of milk being sold for ₱10. Nice & Cool today. Had 1⁄4 can of Sardines Miles.
