Diary of Victor Buencamino

June 18, 1942

New rice ration plan adopted yesterday. I hope it works out well. It will meet with a lot of objections. People do not want rationing. We are not used to a regimented economy.

Tony Vasquez dropped in at the office. He asked me to explain the new system. He was breathing hard. He biked from the hospital. I think he is too old to bike.
