Diary of Albert E. Holland

November 3, 1944

[138]

Still no action. Rumors thick & fast. Atimonan, Maubau, Lamon Bay, Infanta, Vigan, Lingayen –

We hear of a great naval victory off Formosa & Northeastern Luzon – the Japs lost 84 capital ships & we lost 6 – Some new offensive method used – Nimitz congratulated –

Election is near – We all believe Roosevelt will win, most of us want him to win. It is reported that Willkie is dead. also Al Smith – Both great men – but in different ways.

We are too tired to clean the camp effectively – It is getting dirtier all the time – & the Japanese want 200 more men to work in the gardens – on 1250 calories per day? (only 1100 from the Japs)
