Diary of Aurelio Alvero

November 25, 1944

5:05 p.m. Went to Director General Yoshida’s apartment where I had the pleasure of meeting very encouraging men like ___________________ Nakashima, director of the New Philippine Cultural Institute, Mr. Uno of the PIAM, Mr, Togo of the Army and a Mr. __________________ of the Navy. I took up with Director General Yoshida the question of appointment as also my plan of gradation in membership. I find working with Director Yoshida a great pleasure for he is a very encouraging man.
