Diary of Warren A. Wilson

November 2, 1944

Things  are shaping up slowly but with this large draft there are many problems, innumerable people of all ranks stop me every 10 feet and wish to be relieved of the draft because of real or supposed physical disability,  wife in Santo Tomas, business interests, etc., or wish special duty as mess officer, etc. I would like to help them all but the Japanese are giving the orders and there are our patients to be protected.

Conference with Dr. Nogi today to sign for inventory of R.C. supplies and drugs. It was not complete and will be turned over later. He assigned Warrant Pharmacist Clarence Shearer who has been supply officer to remain as a technician and he will continue in supply.
