Diary of Victor Buencamino

June 17, 1942

Food production campaign not going on well. People are discouraged to plant. When fields are all planted, the fields are commandeered. Some are transformed to airfields. Payment given does not compensate for value of the products.

This is the trouble with the Japanese. They want the people to like them but they slap the people and torture them.

They want something for nothing all the time.

They can’t eat the cake and keep it.

Lolita baked a cake. Vic ate one-half.
